Twelve reasons why you should be using Rhodiola Rosea

  • Has been used for centuries as a potent adaptogen to improve stress management abilities. In one study, participants given 200mg two times per day for four weeks experienced a dramatic decrease in fatigue, exhaustion, and anxiety in just a few days.
  • Burned out? Tired all the time? Over relying on caffeine consumption? Who isn’t these days as we’re all working hard trying to take charge of our lives and life fully. Rhodiola has potent adaptogenic qualities and has been shown to help those with stress-related burnout. 
  • Many suffer from mental health issues for a variety of reasons and need all the support they can get. Rhodiola may be a viable option to alleviate symptoms of mild to moderate depression
  • It contains salidrosides which improve muscle cell absorption of glucose without an increased insulin response. Improved glucose disposal (glucose being utilized and not stored as body fat) and insulin sensitivity are crucial for comprehensive hormone optimization and physique composition goals. 
  • May induce the muscle cells to make more of the energy molecule ATP for improved training performance. 
  • May increase the production of PPAR-delta in the cells. PPAR-delta is a fatty acid sensor in fat cells and muscle cells. The better the mechanism works the more fat you burn. The drug Cardarine (often sold with SARMS) has gained popularity in the last few years as it binds to the PPAR-delta pathway and in turn, increases fat loss and endurance. Rhodiola may offer similar benefits and also Rhodiola may boost the production of EPO for further endurance enhancement. 
  • Just 200mg of Rhodiola an hour before training makes a difference and does not need to be taken daily. You can take it just before training for endurance-boosting benefits.
  • Studies show heart health benefits. This may be due to Rhodiola supporting stress management which lowers excess cortisol levels and supports heart health.  In addition, Rhodiola has been shown to improve oxygen utilization which improves heart health. Finally, Rhodiola lowers C-reactive protein a measure of inflammation and reductions in excess inflammation improve heart health 
  • Boosts the neurotransmitter dopamine which not only helps with drive, mood, motivation, but also appetite control. The better your dopamine levels the fewer sugar cravings you will have and the less caffeine you will desire. Some have even found that the herb Mucuna Pruriens in ASTB helps with nicotine withdrawal issues due to the increase in dopamine. 
  • Increases reaction speed which will help anyone that wants to perform mentally or physically at a higher level. 
  • It helps one adapt to high altitude training for further improvements in endurance. 
  • May have anti-cancer properties as some test-tube studies have revealed Rhodiola impedes the augmentation of bladder, colon, breast, and liver cancer cells.

The optimal dosage is 200mg to 600mg per day of a standardized extract of 3% rosavins and 1% salidrosides such as the Rhodiolife used in my adrenal energizer and stress management supplement RED
