Rhodiola Rosea is a flowering herb that grows in the cold mountainous regions of Europe and Asia. It has been used for centuries in traditional healing systems as a herbal medicine and tonic for anxiety, depression and fatigue.
Most of the beneficial components of Rhodiola Rosea are found in its root, which is also believed to have adaptogenic qualities. This means it helps the body to deal with stress by balancing mood levels and assisting in overall mental performance.
What’s more Rhodiola Rosea is a natural way to improve sleep quality and support both mental and physical health.
Mountainlife Rhodiola Rosea is wild harvested from Siberia and dual extracted using water and alcohol - a traditional Chinese method. This temperature-controlled extraction allows us to produce a fine micro-powder, rich in over 140 bio active ingredients including Salidroside and Rosavins.
Salidroside - A phenylpropanoid glycoside that displays neuroprotective activity and anti-depressant effects.
Rosavin - A cinnamyl alcohol glycoside compound thought to alleviate feelings of anxiety and depression.
Mountainlife Rhodiola Rosea Extract is a 10:1 high strength powder, which is also available in capsule form. To put it simply, this means that 10 kilograms of Rhodiola Rosea is extracted and finely milled to create 1 kilogram of powder. The result is a highly potent health supplement, rich in adaptogenic phytonutrients, Salidroside and Rosavin.
The Rhodiola Rosea Extract capsules are made of the 10:1 extract powder and contain no less than 3% Rosavins and 1% Salidrosides. We have each batch tested by a 3rd party laboratory to ensure this content is correct.
Rhodiola Rosea, the ‘Arctic root’ or ‘Golden root’ as it is commonly referred to, has been used in folk medicine for thousands of years. Soaked in wine, it forms a tonic to alleviate physical fatigue and protect against winter colds.
In Tibetan medicine, it is recorded as a herb used to treat pneumonia and coughing up blood. Similarly, in Traditional Chinese Medicine it is used to clear the lung system, stop bleeding and dissipate swelling and bruising.
Rhodiola is an adaptogen that helps increase the body’s resistance to stress. One study of 101 people with life and work-related stress found that Rhodiola extract significantly improved the symptoms, including fatigue, exhaustion and anxiety, after just 3 days of taking it.
Rhodiola’s adaptogenic qualities may help to combat fatigue. A 4-week study in 60 people with stress-related fatigue found that Rhodiola had a positive effect on fatigue levels and attention span, compared to the placebo pill.
Rhodiola Rosea extract has potential antidepressant properties that may help to balance neurotransmitters in the brain. In one 6-week study, Rhodiola was found to significantly reduce feelings of depression and improve emotional stability in participants with mild-to-moderate depression.
Rhodiola Rosea helps to reduce mental fatigue and improve brain function. In one study, 56 physicians working nights were randomly assigned Rhodiola or a placebo pill. After 2 weeks, the Rhodiola extract was found to reduce mental fatigue and boost performance on work-related tasks by 20%, compared to the placebo.
Rhodiola Rosea extract has shown potential for improving exercise performance. It is thought the extract decreases feelings of perceived exertion and, therefore, motivates you to exercise longer and harder.
Salidroside, a powerful chemical found in Rhodiola may help to prevent cancer. Test-tube studies have shown that it prevents the growth of bladder, colon, breast and liver cancer cells.
