Rhodiola is a versatile adaptogenic succulent that’s been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine across Russia, China, and Sibera.

Rhodiola may help address stress and anyone struggling with adrenal fatigue, as it helps to support your nervous system and lower cortisol. It has been used to treat stress and anxiety, as well as depression. It also offers a range of other health benefits such as increased mental stamina, brain function, and concentration.

Rhodiola can also boost physical endurance and athletic performance, mitigate free radicals and oxidative damage, and enhance neuroprotective and anti-depressive activities.

Our Rhodiola is wildcrafted in the Sichuan Province of China

Add one serving to any warm tea, milk, coffee. Take daily or as needed. *

Care

Please note, Rhodiola powder is particularly sensitive to moisture. Make sure you keep the lid on tight, never use a wet spoon, and try to consume the contents within 3 months of opening.*

Rhodiola does have a unique, bitter taste. Bitterness has an important place in our diet, one that is complemented well with creamy or sweet things if the flavor does not appeal to you. Start with 1/4 tsp along with some nut milk, honey and ghee, or add to other bitter things like coffee or hot chocolate.

Research

Rhodiola crenulata benefits are largely credited to Salidroside, which is believed to have neuroprotective properties, promote feelings of well being and support cellular health. Salidroside, also known as rhodioloside, is a glucoside form of tyrosol. Some studies suggest that Salidroside may have adaptogenic properties, which explains its historic use for a variety of purposes and why Rhodiola crenulata benefits may vary from person to person.

Salidroside has been shown in a few studies to promote energy, promote feelings of well being, and reduce appetite. Salidroside may also support nerve health as a few studies found that that salidroside seems to support the nerve repair process and help protect nerve cells as well as promote cognitive function. This Rhodiola Crenulata extract contains a minimum 3% salidroside content.
