Vital Nutrients Rhodiola contains 200 mg of Rhodiola rosea extract.
Rhodiola rosea is an arctic plant utilized for its powerful adaptogenic properties. Rhodiola rosea has been extensively studied in Russia and the Scandinavian countries for over 35 years. It is categorized as an adaptogen because of its ability to increase resistance to chemical, biological, and physical stressors.
Supportive to the adrenal glands, rhodiola encourages mental and physical performance, stamina, and energy production. Rhodiola may relieve occasional stress, as well as mild memory problems associated with aging.
Rhodiola has been found to inhibit stress-induced depletion of catecholamines and facilitate the transport of neurotransmitters within the brain. The adaptogenic properties of Rhodiola have been attributed primarily to this ability to influence levels and activity of neurotransmitters and opioid peptides such as beta-endorphins. Because it is an adaptogen, Rhodiola has the potential to normalize neurotransmitters in the central nervous system without causing drowsiness or fatigue.
Russian studies suggest a role for Rhodiola in situations characterized by a decline in work performance, poor appetite, sleep disturbances, irritability, headaches, and fatigue. Clinical studies have found improved mental performance in physicians on night duty supplementing with Rhodiola. Medical students given Rhodiola during exam periods reported improved concentration and performance, as well as enhanced well-being, improved sleep, and greater mood stability.
Rhodiola modulates the physical and emotional responses to stress. In addition to aiding sleep, it can enhance mood and decrease anxiety, allowing for more efficient functioning under stressful conditions.
