Rhodiola rosea is extracted from the rhodiola rosea plant. Also called the 'golden root', rhodiola rosea is mainly found growing at high altitudes in Asia and Europe. Rhodiola rosea belongs to the plant group Crassuleae and rhodiola rosea can achieve a growth height of 12-30 inches. With an abundance of yellow blossoms, the rhodiola rosea plant produces a definitive fragrance when it is cut.

Salidroside (Rhodioloside) is a glycoside compound found in the plant Rhodiola rosea. It is thought to be one of the compounds responsible for the antidepressant and anxiolytic actions of this plant, along with rosavin. Salidroside may be more active than rosavin, even though many commercially marketed Rhodiola rosea extracts are standardised for rosavin content rather than salidroside.
Rhodiola rosea is a plant in the Crassulaceae family that grows in cold regions of the world. These include much of the Arctic, the mountains of Central Asia, the Rocky Mountains, and mountainous parts of Europe, such as the Alps, Pyrenees, Carpathian Mountains,Scandinavia, Iceland, Great Britain and Ireland. The perennial plant grows in areas up to 2280 meters elevation. Several shoots grow from the same thick root. Shoots reaches 5 to 35 cm in height. Rhodiola rosea is dioecious - having separate female and male plants.
Rhodiola rosea contains a variety of compounds that may contribute to its effects, including the class of rosavins which include rosavin, rosarin, and rosin. Several studies have suggested that the most active components are likely to be salidroside (rhodioloside) and tyrosol, with other components being inactive when administered alone, but showing synergistic effects when a fixed combination of rhodioloside, rosavin, rosarin and rosin was used. Rosavin, rosarin, rosin and salidroside (and sometimes p-tyrosol, rhodioniside, rhodiolin and rosiridin) are among active ingredients of Rhodiola rosea, these compounds are mostly polyphenols. Although these phytochemicals are typically mentioned as specific to Rhodiola extracts, there are many other constituent phenolic antioxidants, including proanthocyanidins, quercetin, gallic acid, chlorogenic acid and kaempferol.
Rhodiola rosea's effects potentially are related to optimizing serotonin and dopamine levels due to monoamine oxidase inhibition and its influence on opioid peptides such as beta-endorphins, although these specific neurochemical mechanisms have not been clearly documented with scientific studies.
Rhodiola is included among a class of plant derivatives called adaptogens which differ from chemical stimulants, such as nicotine, and do not have the same physiological effects.
In Russia and Scandinavia, Rhodiola rosea has been used for centuries to cope with the cold Siberian climate and stressful life. Such effects were provided with evidence in laboratory models of stress using the nematode C. elegans, and in rats in which Rhodiola effectively prevented stress-induced changes in appetite, physical activity, weight gain and the estrus cycle.
Rhodiola rosea Extract is safe, no side effects have been found.
• The typical dose is 200-700mg per day (usually in 2-3 doses throughout the day).
• Consult physicians for different condition specifics.
Rhodiola rosea extract is mainly used in the form of capsules or a tablet, though tinctures are also available. The capsules and tablets often contain 100 mg of a standardized amount of 3 percent rosavins and 0.8–1 percent salidroside because the naturally occurring ratio of these compounds in Rhodiola rosea root is approximately 3:1, and of course, they contain many other suspected active biochemical compounds in the plant (12 Kinds or 28 Kinds are only two declarations by some companies in this line).
4.It is a natural food coloring, having strong coloring ability, good heat resistance and light resistance;
1. Enhancing immunity
It stimulates the immune system in two ways:
1st.the direct specific stimulation to immune defense (stimulate immune cells of one of the most important types: Natural killer cells. NK-cell search and destroy infected body cells).Rhodiola by improving the T-cell immune makes the immune system back to normal. This shows that it could enhance the resistance ability to the drug, which was infected and gradually accumulated.
2nd.making the body less susceptible to pressure. When we are under pressure for a long-term, and continue to capture the energy from other systems, it will lead to immune response's reduction and the health's deterioration. Rhodiola also can prevent B cell immunity from inhibition caused by stress and fatigue, thus enhancing the B cell immunity.
Rhodiola can increase the speed of serotonin precursor, tryptophan and 5-hydroxy tryptophan in transmitting into the brain.
3. Protection of cardiovascular
Rhodiola alleviate cardiovascular tissue damage and dysfunction caused by stress. It can protect cardiovascular tissue under catecholamine caused by stress and reduce arrhythmias caused by adrenal gland. Rhodiola can regulate heart beat and thus prevent cardiac arrhythmias.
4. Effective antioxidant
Rhodiola has antioxidant ability. Limiting the adverse effects of free radical damage, which can effectively resist the disease due to aging.
5. Enhance the human capabilities
Rhodiola can improve muscle/fat ratio and improve the level of blood hemoglobin and red blood cells.
6. Anticancer activity
Taking Rhodiola rosea extract can directly inhibit the range of Lewis lung neoplasm's growth and migration. When the Rhodiola extract and anti-tumor drugs,cyclophosphamide are combined to treat the same tumor, the effect of antitumor and anti-metastasis are effectively promoted. It can also improve urinary system and immunity of bladder cancer.
