    What is Rhodiola Extract?

    Rhodiola, also known as arctic root or golden root, is a herb that grows in cold mountainous regions. It contains over 140 active compounds, with the most active being ‘rosavin’ and ‘salidroside’. Commonly regarded as a wonder-herb, Rhodiola helps you cope calmly with stress, maintain emotional balance and provide stamina and mental capacity to overcome fatigue. 

    Rhodiola is an adaptogen, which means that it regulates hormonal production and is helpful for managing stress. Studies show Rhodiola influences the release of stress hormones whilst increasing energy metabolism, helping to relieve stress symptoms. Studies show that consuming Rhodiola regularly can help relieve anxiety and stress. In our latest stress research, 78% of respondents experienced stress or anxiety at least once a week.

    Rhodiola can also help to fight fatigue by reducing physical and mental stress. The adrenal glands play a huge role in balancing blood sugar levels and maintaining sustained energy. A study of 100 people found significant improvements in fatigue after taking Rhodiola for 8 weeks, and another study found it may be useful for relieving burnout.
