Rhodiola rosea has been extensively studied in Scandinavian countries and in Russia for over 35 years and is categorised as an adaptogen because of its ability to increase resistance to chemical, biological, and physical stressors. Thorne’s Rhodiola adaptogenic properties are attributed primarily to its ability to influence the levels and activity of neurotransmitters and the amino acids that mimic the effect of the brain. Rhodiola has the potential to normalise neurotransmitters in the central nervous system without causing drowsiness or fatigue. It helps maintain normal levels of brain chemicals, but does not further affect them when they are already normal.
Studies have found improved mental performance in physicians on night shift who were supplemented with Rhodiola. Medical students given Rhodiola during exam periods reported improved concentration and performance, as well as enhanced wellbeing, improved sleep, and greater mood stability.
