Rhodiola rosea is a cold-climate, perennial herb. It is generally classified as a natural adaptogen, meaning a substance that promotes overall well-being and performance, both mentally and physically within the body. Rhodiola rosea was traditionally called golden root. Golden root increases blood flow to the brain, allowing for increased performance. As an adaptogen, rhodiola is high in antioxidants. Users frequently find that it increases resistance to irritability, stress, fatigue and occasional headaches. By reducing stress, it benefits the heart. Rhodiola Rosea is also a favorite of Russian athletes who seek the benefits of physical performance, whereas it is employed by students looking for the mental performance. The herb has also long been used in various other parts of the world as a health tonic.
