What is Rhodiola rosea?

Rhodiola rosea (aka “golden root” or “Arctic root”) is an herb widely used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to boost immunity, increase energy and mental capacity.1 Rhodiola rosea supplementation has been associated with physical and cognitive vitality.2

Its positive effects on energy levels can be attributed to the stimulation of the nervous system, which subsequently improves the total work capacity. 1A growing body of literature also demonstrates that Rhodiola rosea may have beneficial effects on mental performance and certain mental health conditions.3 For example, stress related symptoms in mildly anxious participants were significantly reduced and the total mood significantly improved following 14 days of daily Rhodiola rosea supplementation at 400 mg dosage (taken in two equal dosages in the morning and before lunch).4

Key benefits:

  • Stronger immune system
  • Stress relief
  • Anti-anxiety effects
  • Higher energy levels
  • Better mood
  • Increased mental alertness

Mechanisms of action:

A wide ranging physical and cognitive benefits of Rhodiola rosea have been attributed to its ability to influence levels and activity of monoamines and opioid peptides (e.g. beta-endorphins).1 Some evidence also suggests that Rhodiola rosea facilitates the transport of important neurotransmitters in the brain.1

Recommended dosage of Rhodiola rosea:

The recommended daily dosage of Rhodiola rosea is 1-2 capsules. It is best to take it with breakfast. Rhodiola rosea can also be taken with Ginkgo biloba (also a herbal supplement). By taking these two natural supplements together you are likely to experience a greater combined effect on various cognitive functions as has been recently demonstrated in a large study using healthy participants.5

Side effects:

AsRhodiola rosea is a natural supplement it is very safe and well-tolerated. However, you should not exceed the recommended daily dosage. Also, do not use Rhodiola rosea if you take any blood thinning medications.
