rosea is an herb with a long history of use for helping the body to adapt to the stressors of life. Rhodiola has been listed in the national pharmacopoeias of France, Sweden, Denmark, and Russia as an adaptogen and overall "brain tonic". Adaptogens support the body’s ability to handle stress by balancing the levels of hormones and neurotransmitters normally associated with the stress response. Rhodiola is unique among adaptogens in that it has been clinically shown to increase energy reserves and reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Rhodiola has been found to improve mental performance during night-shift duty, helping reduce fatigue in shift workers as well as the average person suffering from general fatigue.
Rhodiola is the ideal herbal product for those who frequently experience stress, especially those who respond to stressors with a feeling of helplessness. It is especially helpful for shift workers or those with high-stress lifestyles.
