Rhodiola benefits span from immune support to libido enhancement; however, its use for strengthening cognitive performance and stamina are the most researched of its therapeutic applications.
Among the complex mosaic of constituents within Rhodiola rosea that earn its status as a mighty adaptogen, rosavin and salidroside are the compounds recognized for the bulk of its neuroprotective properties. Rhodiola extract featuring this tandem exerts a positive effect on neurotransmitter levels, which in turn benefits healthy central nervous system function and mood enhancement. Antioxidant action generated by rhodiola further shields cognitive activity from emotional challenges that contribute to stress- and anxiety-related illnesses.
The majority of rhodiola extracts have a 3% rosavin and 1% salidroside content. New Roots Herbal’s Rhodiola Extract features a validated potency of 5% rosavin and 1.9% salidroside content measured with high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) in our ISO 17025–accredited analytical laboratory.
Mental health is complex; for those that prefer single-ingredient supplementation over broad-spectrum formulas, New Roots Herbal’s Rhodiola Extract is worth exploring.
