Rhodiola rosea

Rhodiola (root) is a stimulating adaptogen used widely in Russia and Sweden. It supports cognitive performance including memory, concentration and focus. It also supports a healthy mood by raising serotonin levels for those with mild to moderate depression. It balances cortisol levels and helps the body adapt to stress in a healthy way. Rhodiola raises energy levels and may be used for stress-induced fatigue, anxiety and chronic fatigue syndrome. It is also recommended for athletes to increase endurance and performance and it may also help with low thyroid function. Rhodiola is native to the higher elevations of Europe and Asia.
