Rhodiola rosea tincture: A well rounded, organic tonic that boosts vitality and stamina

Rhodiola rosea, also known as the “Golden Root” is a potent herb that has been highly valued in Scandinavian countries for centuries. The herb is what is called an „adaptogen“, which means that it adapts to the individual constitution to increase resistance to stress - but without disturbing normal biological functions. Rhodiola grows in harsh, cold and windy environments. Its rare ability to thrive under such hostile conditions is often thought to be transferred to those who consume the plant.

The use of Rhodiola as a dietary supplement can be dated back to 77AD, where the Greek physician Dioscordies first documented its value as a tonic. It was also used by Viking warriors to enhance their stamina and strength, as well as being sought after by Chinese emperors who used it in their alchemical vitality elixirs.

Effects
The main use of this safe, non-toxic herb is as an adaptogen. An adaptogen is a natural substance that is considered to increase the body’s non-specific resistance to stresses and normalise its functions. This means helps adapt to both physical and mental stress, whilst improving stamina and endurance. It is for this well rounded effect that you can find it being used by athletes across the world, especially in China. Rhodiola brings grounded energy, rather than a „rush“.

Another common use of rhodiola is as an anti-depressant. Its adaptogenic qualities have been shown to help regulate serotonin, a chemical thought to play a central role in depressions - going some way to help elevate and balance moods. It is commonly used in Russia and the Scandinavian countries to help treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a depression caused by the lack of sunlight.

Other health benefits that have reported from the use of rhodiola rosea include: strengthening of the nervous system, an enhanced immune system, better memory recall, improved sexual function, reducing the effects of cardiac problems caused by stress, enhancing muscle recovery, increase anti-tumour activity, regulating blood sugar, activating the process of fat breakdown, and enhancing thyroid function.

Ingredients
Organically grown Rhodiola rosea, water, 39.5% grain alcohol

Dosage
10 drops 3 times a day. More is possible but can cause problems with sleeping due to its stimulating properties.

Botanical
Rhodiola rosea is a member of the Crassulaceae plant family and can be found growing in the colder regions of the world, such as Siberia, northern parts of China, Scandinavia and even colder parts of the United Kingdom. It is a perennial plant that grows with multiple stems, reaching around 0.3m high and 0.3m wide. Rhodiola rosea has many small green serrated leaves growing up each of its stem, with each stem finishing in a cluster of pale yellow flowers. It is the root of the plant that is most sought after.

Chemical:

Over 140 active chemical compounds have been discovered in the plant so far, including but not exclusive to, alkaloids, terpenoids, rosavins, rosin and rosarins. It is thought the most active components are tyrosol and rhodioloside. Many of the components are inactive when administered by themselves, but are synergistic when used together.

Tyrosol
Tyrosol is believed to act as an antioxidant, protecting cells from degeneration due to oxidisation.

Rhodioloside
Rhodioloside is a glucoside of tyrosol. This is the main component that is thought to offer the mood balancing effects, acting as an anti-depressant.

Caution
Rhodiola rosea is a non-toxic herb that has been used safely for centuries. There are no known health warnings for its use; but on rare occasions it can cause the side effects if insomnia and irritability.
There have not been any clinical research studies into the effects of Rhodiola rosea in pregnant or breast-feeding women, so it should be avoided in these cases. Ask a medical professional for advice if in doubt.
