Rhodiola rosea (also called Golden Root, Roseroot, Arctic Root, King’s Crown or Aaron’s Rod) is a fragrant plant with golden flowers that grows low to the ground in cold and mountainous regions worldwide, including the Arctic, Central and Northern Asia including Siberia, the Rocky Mountains, Scandinavia, Russia, and many other parts of Europe. The name Roseroot comes from the floral aroma of its cut root. Rhodiola rosea has long been prized for its ability to enhance physical stamina and mental focus.* Rhodiola rosea has a long history of use in Russian and Scandinavian folk medicine to combat stress. In the 1960s, the Soviet Union researched Rhodiola rosea intensively as a way to boost the performance of its Olympic athletes and cosmonauts.*
Medical interest in Rhodiola rosea focuses on the root of the plant, which contains an assortment of chemical constituents. The active ingredients are thought to be the rosavins and salidrosides; however, they may not be the only pharmacologically active compounds contributing to the herb’s efficacy. Rhodiola rosea compounds are thought to help the body adapt to stress by helping restore balance when the adrenal glands are overworked.*
Unlike other stress-reducing herbs, Rhodiola does not have a sedative effect on the central nervous system. Rather, it is considered an adaptogen. That means it can increase or decrease biochemicals as needed to create a state of equilibrium in the body.* Specifically, Rhodiola rosea has been shown to normalize levels of the stress hormone cortisol, to support healthy levels of ATP, the body’s main energy currency, and to normalize levels of brain chemicals that affect mood.* As a result of its adaptogenic nature, Rhodiola has the unusual ability to encourage a calm and relaxed emotional state while also optimizing energy and focus.*
Numerous double-blind, placebo-con¬trolled, human clinical trials support the use of Rhodiola rosea to combat fatigue in subjects under stress.* One trial found it reduced fatigue among physicians working the night shift.* Another found it had the same effect for students during exams.* Additional clinical studies have found Rhodiola rosea promoted a calm, positive mood and improved physical endurance and cognitive function.* There is also evidence from laboratory studies that the herb may support cardiovascular health by promoting normal heart rhythm.*
