Helps to improve the body’s resistance to stress, fatigue and anxiety.
Dotted with little yellow flowers, rhodiola is a plant with thick, remarkably resilient roots. For centuries, it has been used as an herbal remedy, and was one of the first plants labelled an adaptogen. Its properties allow it to adapt to the body’s specific needs, particularly when it comes to building up resistance against stress and fatigue. Rhodiola is known to promote relaxation and ease tension caused by anxiety and occasional fatigue. It also helps reduce the effects of stress, restoring peace of mind and making it a true asset for anyone looking to recover after a period of intense stress or burnout.
Studies have shown that rhodiola’s properties mainly resulted from the presence of specific phytochemicals like rosarin and rosavin, but rhodiola also contains lots of nutrients, like amino acids, minerals, vitamins, tannins and antioxidants.
