How Rhodiola Works?

The most effective part of Rhodiola rosea is the root. Rhodiola consists of more than 30 components such as phenylpropanoids, phenlyethanoids, cyanoglycosides, flavonoids, triterpenes and monoterpenes. The phenylpropanoid glycoside also known as salidroside may be responsible for a number of the stimulant or adaptogenic impacts of rhodiola. Different constituents obtained from rhodiola include rhodioloside A-E, rhodioniside, rosin, rhodiolin, lotaustralin, rosarin, rosavin, rosiridol, rosiridin, acetylrhodalgin and rhodalgin. It is suspected that these constituents may also be included in rhodiola's adaptogenic impacts. Rhodiola also contain caffeic acid and tannins gallic acid along flavonoids and chlorogenic acid, for example, proanthocyanidins and catechins. These mixtures are possibly responsible for the antioxidant effects of rhodiola extracts. In vitro analysis, salidroside diminishes apoptosis of neuroblastoma cells presented to hydrogen peroxide, which recommend that it may protect against oxidative stress damage. The quantity of active constituents in rhodiola can differ relying on the plant material collection period and source of plant material. Extract of rhodiola shows antiarrhythmic properties and safe is against reperfusion injury after ischemia. These impacts can be nullified by naloxone infusion, proposing that the mechanism may include as enhance in endogenous opioids. Rhodiola seems to have major central nervous system stimulant action. In animal model, a rhodiola extract of 1% salidroside and 3% rosavin has stimulant and anxiolytic impacts. In animal models, the salidroside constituent also has sedative impacts. Extract of rhodiola has also shown potential in improving memory and learning. Extracts of rhodiola may also protect from cardiac damage caused by stress level by preventing rise in cyclic-AMP and cardiac catecholamines. There is some interest toward utilizing rhodiola for remedy of hypothyroidism, because of its fatigue-reducing, antioxidant and antidepressant effects, however this hypothesis has not been tested in humans. Rhodiola may have effective results in patients suffering from diabetes. According to studies in animal model of diabetes, particular extract of rhodiola has antioxidant effects. Some proof recommends that extract of rhodiola has anti-inflammatory impact and can also reduce the level of C-receptive protein (CRP). Healthy individual, who took a particular extract of rhodiola (Rhodax, Phoenix Labs) for a few days after and before debilitating exercise had lower level of C-receptive protein as compared to those individuals who used placebo. Rhodiola powder may enhance adenosine triphosphate (ATP) turnover in muscle. But study in string athletes discovered no impact on muscle ATP depleting activity. Rhodiola appears to have anticancer effects. In vitro studies, extract of rhodiola may hinder prostate and liver cancer cell lines.

What Are The Side Effects /Adverse Reactions of Rhodiola?

Genrally, Rhodiola rosea is well tolerated, but rhodiola extract can have adverse effects such as dry mouth and dizziness.
