Rhodila rosea (also known as arctic root or golden root) is an herb native to the arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and Alaska and has been used medicinally in Iceland, Sweden, France, Russia, and Greece for centuries. Its root contains more than 140 active ingredients, the two most potent of which are rosavin and salidroside. Rhodiola root aids in adaptation to physical, chemical, and environmental stresses and is used for increasing energy, endurance, strength, and mental capacity. ROSAVIN AND SALIDROSIDE - Rosavin is a cinnamyl alcohol glycoside and Salidroside (rhodioloside) is a glucoside of tyrosol: both are found naturally in the plant Rhodiola rosea. These bioactive compounds are responsible for the antidepressant and anxiolytic actions of Rhodiola root, offering protection against oxidative stress and positively supporting the nervous system by protecting nerves, promoting nerve repair, regulating neurotransmitter release in the nervous system, and preventing premature cell death. Other benefits include protecting neurons from damaging toxins and stabilizing cell function, as well as rejuvenating bone cell development.
