What are Rhodiola Rosea benefits?

Rhodiola Rosea, also known as arctic root or golden root, is an herb of the genus Rhodiola, in the family Crassulaceae, and is a popular herb for its ‘adaptogenic’ properties (reducing fatigue and exhaustion in prolonged stress situations). The main chemicals thought to be responsible for Rhodiola rosea’s effects are rosavin and salidroside. And according to studies, Rhodiola Rosea has shown evidence of several benefits to the body, significantly reducing fatigue and exhaustion that come from stress and anxiety. The herb was also able to show results in exercise performance, as evidence showed that acute supplementation before exercise can reduce fatigue. Mood improvement was also one of the benefits of Rhodiola Rosea consumption. In addition, Rhodiola Rosea has also been shown to be beneficial in reducing symptoms of depression, controlling diabetes, and also preventing certain types of cancer.

Muscle Health Rhodiola Rosea and Muscle Health

The muscles are responsible for body movement, stabilization, regulation of organs, substance transportation and production of heat in addition to being strongly associated with the circulatory and nervous systems. Muscle quality is essential for well being. Supplements that help keep muscles healthy are related to different factors, such as glucose and insulin regulation, protein synthesis, energy metabolism, and others.
  • Fatigue Prevention

    Fatigue is characterized by a reduction in mental energy. It can also appear as acute and/or chronic fatigue. Acute fatigue is due to excessive mentally demanding work. Chronic fatigue is multifactorial, influenced by insomnia, stress, anxiety, depression, causing tiredness and constant lack of motivation. The substances indicated for fatigue help to improve sleep and mood problems as they are neuroprotective, affecting neurological function.

  • Muscular Endurance

    It is about the capacity of a muscle to repeatedly exercise during a set of movements. Compounds that improve power output are the ones which also have antifatigue effects.
