Rhodiola or rhodiola, with its full, scientific name, Rhodiola Rosea, is a plant with yellow flowers that grows in the cold northern areas of Europe, Asia and North America, whose root has medicinal properties, with multiple benefits for the body's health. Rhodiola contains a unique set of phytochemicals, called rozavins, that are not found in any other plant, which makes it such a special plant.

Rhodiola Rosea is considered an adaptogenic plant - a term first used in 1947 by the Russian scientist Dr. Nicolai Lazarev. He studied certain plants especially for their remarkable qualities in terms of stress protection and immunity stimulation. Rhodiola Rosea was a "second generation" adaptogen - the first generation being Ginseng.

The adaptogenic benefits of Rhodiola come partly from a phytochemical it contains - salidroside - a compound that relieves anxiety and stress. Rhodiola helps to balance the levels of cortisol – the stress hormone – in the body. The power of an adaptogen lies in the fact that, if cortisol levels are too high, it can lower them or, if they are too low, it can raise them.

Rhodiola contributes to increasing well-being by supporting two essential neurotransmitters for mood and mental function - serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters are essential in terms of the brain's ability to stimulate states of happiness.

In addition, with a high concentration of antioxidant polyphenols, Rhodiola Rosea offers additional oxidative protection, combating premature aging.

Rhodiola Rosea, a powerful ally in combating stress

Among the main benefits of Rhodiola Rosea is its power to combat stress. Being an adaptogenic plant, Rhodiola annihilates the negative effects of stress, stimulates attention, concentration, memory and generates a feeling of well-being.

Rhodiola stimulates the body's ability to adapt to stress and the fight against depression, also helping to reduce anxiety states. It also improves the mental state, but also has effects in terms of preventing the occurrence of panic attacks.

Rhodiola Rosea effectively combats stress, at the same time increasing serotonin and dopamine levels, which improve energy levels and good mood.

Rhodiola Rosea – 5 other benefits

Combating stress is not the only benefit of this plant. Among the notable benefits of rhodiola are the increase in the body's resistance to effort, the contribution to longevity, the reduction of blood sugar in the case of patients suffering from diabetes, but also a skin care effect.

Increased physical performance
Rhodiola Rosea is said to be used by the Russian Olympic team to maximize their performance in athletics and bodybuilding. Rhodiola Rosea helps increase the body's resistance to exercise by increasing the number of red blood cells and reducing oxidative effects.

In the context where red blood cells have the main role of transporting oxygen to the muscles, a larger number of them can improve athletic performance and delay the onset of fatigue. Also, having anti-inflammatory effects, rhodiola helps in the rapid recovery of muscles, increasing their resistance, shortening the recovery time after long workouts, but also improving sexual function.

Antiaging effect
Rhodiola has antiaging effects and helps increase longevity. According to some studies, part of its key active elements – salidroside and several rosavin compounds – protect human cells from premature aging when exposed to oxidative stress. This is especially true for skin cells, thus maintaining a healthy and glowing skin.

When used in skin care products, Rhodiola stimulates microcirculation, collagen and elastin production and protects the skin from environmental stressors such as UV rays. It also has a stimulating effect on the skin, increasing circulation and cell turnover, rapidly renewing collagen and reducing the appearance of fine lines.

Antidepressant effect
According to research still in its early stages, the administration of Rhodiola could improve symptoms of depression after 6 weeks of treatment in people with mild to moderate depression.

It helps lower blood sugar
Rhodiola Rosea may also help lower blood sugar. Taking Rhodiola together with diabetes medications could lead to low blood sugar. That is why blood sugar must be carefully monitored, because it is possible to change the dose of the medicine for diabetes. This is done only with the supervision and on the recommendation of the specialist doctor.
