What stressful situation is coming up for you? A presentation to a critical audience? Another two weeks on night shift? Looming final exams? Or just the relentless pace of life in general? Now is the time to learn about Rhodiola rosea, an incredible, yet very safe, herb that helps you adapt to the stress you are facing, whatever it may be. It helps by increasing your energy, mental clarity, focus and performance, while relieving anxiety and even improving your sex life. If this sounds too good to be true, read on.
Rhodiola is showing itself to be an effective herb that works as an adaptogen (see box) to help us manage stress. It is native to mountainous regions in Asia and Europe and has a centuries-old reputation as a healing herb that combats fatigue and restores energy. Even the Vikings used it. In Siberia, bouquets of rhodiola roots are still given to newly-weds to enhance fertility and ensure the birth of healthy children. Most of the research has been done in the former Soviet Union and Scandinavian countries. Although there are over 200 species, studies show that Rhodiola rosea is the most clinically effective.
