Rhodiola Rosea
(Golden Root)
Here Are A Few Comments About Our Rhodiola:

"I really love the Rhodiola. I was at a trade show all weekend in Prince George and was on my feet all day both days. I was just trying out the herb to see how I would like it. I've got to tell you - it was phenomenal. I had tons of energy and was in a terrific mood all day long. Also, my son has been using the kanna and loves it. He's got a "disorder" they've labeled ADD/ODD which is actually far more serious than just the ADD by itself. The ODD is Oppositional Defiant Disorder which can make him really dark and ugly when it rears its head. He's learning to deal with it anyway, but the kanna is a really nice addition. He's usually pretty rebellious and disinterested in anything herbal, but I left the information about it on the table and he apparently read it and decided to try it for himself."

"I really
like Rosea over everything I tried so far....."

"I am having trouble sleeping..."
"I also was on pharmaceuticals. Ativan and related downers for fifteen years. It got to the point where I was taking 4 mg and it was not working. When I told my doctor, she gave me a prescription for xprexa..."(this was a long story so I edited it - Ken) I suggested taking rhodiola for sleeping, and here is her reply:
"Yikes, the BEST and most different sleep I have ever had. I took the Valerian tincture and some "sleep" herbal tea, but it really did not make me sleep. I was sleepy, but was still looking at the Alarm clock. After one hour I took two Rhodiola capsules and I was asleep in less than 30 minutes, as you said I would. I woke up this morning so relaxed and unstressed, that I never felt like this before. I was not feeling drugged or sleepy. I had lots of energy and I was in a great mood. My daughter noticed that with all the rushing and regular school-morning fiasco, I was cool, calm, and even making jokes about it all. So, Ken, Your advice about the Rhodiola is certainly life-changing. I cannot wait to try the Maca and Kava Kava."

"I've been having trouble sleeping for the past two years.
The rhodiola rosea is working stupendously well for me. Nothing else I've tried that is natural has been able to put me to sleep until now. It got so bad that I even tried antidepressants but they nearly killed me so I went off all pharmaceuticals and just struggled along getting to sleep well after midnight most nights. If it weren't for maca I would not have made it through my workdays. The gelatinized maca is awesome stuff and really keeps you going long after you'd normally quit. But now I've found that if I take 2-3 of the Rhodiola capsules at bedtime I fall asleep very nicely, and it also calms me and makes me feel more relaxed. It's powerful stuff so I don't take a lot of it. All of Ken's products seem to have way more potency than any other brands I've tried."

"we are loving the Rhodiola... three of those caps...does us smooothe... Always want to have these around. I may start selling them.."

"The Rhodiola of yours I recently tried is the best I've had!"

"My wife and I moved to Miami Beach a few years ago, it is a city that never sleeps, the streets are often as busy at 4 am as they are at 4 pm, and because of the energy here, the street noise, car alarms, and the light pollution into our bedroom, we hadnít been able to sleep deeply and restfully in three years. Three years is a long time to go without restful sleep, we felt like it was aging us prematurelyÖ The first night I took the Rhodiola I lay down in bed, closed my eyes, and opened them, and it was morning... It was as if no time had passed, and yet 8 or 9 hours had gone by. I came out of such a deep sleep, for a moment, I didnít even know who the woman next to me in bed was (it was my wife), and I felt so rested, so rejuvenatedÖ it connected me with a feeling I had completely forgotten about, a feeling of restedness and calm I hadnít known since my childhood. Since we started taking Rhodiola, we sleep better and more deeply all the time now, even when we donít take it. It seems to have retrained out systems. When I do take it, I find it shuts off that part of my brain associated with memory, so during the night Iím not relating to my life, the prior dayís activities, stress, etcÖ Iím liberated while Iím asleep, and when I first awake, sometimes thereís a brief moment of amnesia as I come out of a deep sleep, where I donít even know what day it is, and that is so nice, to feel that freedom of not being tied to the daily grind, and then I remember what day it is, but the emotional cords are still cut, and the calm and the relaxation associated with that mental freedom remains with me throughout the day, into the night, and into the next dayÖ. Itís literally changed the way I experience the world, because itís shown me a new way of being, and Iíve learned to integrate thatÖ And if I feel like I had a frenetic day, and might not sleep deeply at night, I simply have to take a couple Rhodiola and lay down to complete restÖ I am so grateful, no wonder it is good for the immune system, I feel as though itís made me immune to the stress of daily life. Thanks againÖ"

"Ken does it again. I came across your Rhodolia caps on my very over-stuffed supplement shelves. I took 2 in the morning and -POW, I was buzzing, energized and stress-free the whole day and night. It completely overrode my fatique and ennui from allergies and sinuses. I felt it took about 10 years off my subjective age."

"I forgot how great rhodolia can be. In fact, I almost worry how long it will still be legal! I've tried many, many other kinds of Rhodolia, but Ken's is tops, like all his stuff."

"Wow, I've tried several other rhodiola products, and your rhodiola sweeps them all under the table. It's supremely calming yet gives me energy for whatever I have to tackle on any particular day. I couldn't wait to come home and order some more of your stuff to try. How do you find such high quality herbage when there's so much mediocre/crappy stuff out there?! Thanks!"

"I received the Rhodiola and it is working great! The first day I took three as recommended, but it seemed to be too much, so I lessoned it to 2 per day and that seems to be a better dosage for me. Perhaps I just need to build up to the three per day? At any rate, it is giving me a ton of energy and a nice calm at the same time. Really strange how it works, but it does!! I can't tell you how happy I am that I found your site!! All your stuff is great!"

"Thanks again and have to say that the Rhodea (spelling) is so perfect with just one cap in the morning and one in the evening...gives a real feeling of well being...many things like St johns wort say they do that but they do it by "slowing you down" and this is an uplifting sensation, very higher frequency YET balancing so I will say Rhodea Rosea is a "tune up" and Balance herb. Really effective for my chemistry. Great great!"

"hi i love your rohdolia product its amazing. i work in an involuntary acute psyche ward, which is a verry stressfull enviroment. i have been takeing Rohdolia three times daily and noticed imediately that my ability to do my job as a counseler with very difficult patients was greatly enhanced. i felt absolutely no stress and was able to work through very dangerous and difficult situations with out stress. my fight or flight response was greatly reduced and i was able to work with a clear head with out my emotional responses getting the better of me. Rohdolia has now become a part of my daily deit! and i am able to offer a much greater service to my community. thanks!!!"
What Does Rhodiola Do?

Rhodiola, Commonly known as Golden Root, is almost unknown in the United States. In Siberia the location of Golden Root plants are a closely held secret among families who live there. The emperor of China used to organize expeditions to Siberia to bring back this highly valued plant. Rhodiola is an adaptogenic herb along the lines of more famous cousins such as ginseng, ashwaganda, suma, etc.

Rhodiola, however, is more powerful and may be the best adaptogenic herb available. Research by Russians began in 1931 when it was found to increase sexual potency. In a test of 35 subjects with weak erections and/or premature ejaculations, 50 mg per day was found to provide substantial improvement in 26 of the 35. The levels of 17-ketosteroids in seminal fluid showed an increase in the production of sex hormones.

Women had much the same result. 40 women with secondary amenorrhea (lack of menstruation) were given 100 to 150 mg per day of Rhodiola and 25 resumed their periods and 11 became pregnant.

Research has shown that whether or not this is true, many remarkable therapeutic benefits accrue from ingesting this herb Among these are:

Adaptogen. Increases body's ability to handle stresses of all kinds. Partly, this is because it "tones down" the sympathetic (fight or flight) nervous system and increases the relaxing parasympathetic system. Subjects given Rhodiola show increased levels of beta-endorphin in the brain. Beta-endorphin is the stress relieving, feel-good, analgesic peptide.

Antidepressant. All test subjects showed a positive therapeutic effect from 100 mg of Rhodiola per day. It is thought to work by making serotonin's precursors, tryptophan and 5-HTP, more available to the brain and by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is destroyed by catechol-O-methyltransferase or COMT. Rhodiola antagonizes COMT. Rosavin can decrease COMT activity by 60% and raise serotonin levels by 30%! A study of 128 individuals of all ages with various forms of depression showed that 65% had a complete disappearance of their depression. Rhodiola has been used with a variety of prescription antidepressants with no apparent problems.

Prevents emotional stress. Asthenia, an emotional stress condition, is a condition characterized by sluggishness, low motivation, muscle weakness, chronic fatigue, labored breathing, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations and excessive sleeping. 100 to 150 mg of Rhodiola daily reversed this.

Improves endurance levels. Excellent for athletes. A study of 52 individuals of all ages showed a 12% increase in the duration of physical performance. When initially fatigued and asked to perform the test, it increased to 28%! Rhodiola increases muscular ATP and creatine levels.

Shortens recovery after strenuous and prolonged exercise. 30 minutes after a 12 mile long biathlon, control subjects still had a pulse rate of 129% above baseline (pre-exercise.) Rhodiola subjects had a pulse rate only 105% of baseline.

Improves physical performance. In the biathlon subjects had to ski 12 miles while periodically shooting at targets. Not only did they complete the course faster, they hit far more targets. In a study of 112 subjects, 89% of those taking Rhodiola showed a much more rapid improvement in performance in various sports. Furthermore, 69% demonstrated much faster adaptation to climatic and social changes while 86% had an improved appetite. Helps maintain energy levels. Improves indicators of protein metabolism. Valuable for body builders. Researchers considered Rhodiola the equivalent of anabolic steroids without the side-effects. Muscle protein and glutamic acid (from L-Glutamine) are enhanced by Rhodiola. It also increases hemoglobin and red blood cell levels while favorable changing the muscle to fat ratio of the body.

Increases attention span, memory and mental performance. In a proofreading test, those taking Rhodiola decreased the number of mistakes by 88% while the control group increased theirs by 84%!

A similar test was conducted with 128 students who were also tested for the effects of fatigue on mental performance over time. After an hour, the placebo group had a 13% increase in errors; after four hours this increased to 37%; after six hours it became 88%; and after eight hours it went up to 180%! Those taking Rhodiola had a 56% decrease in errors for four hours. After that it crept up but still stayed well below the controls.

Increases strength and mobility.

Prevents the development of hypoglycemia. Valuable for diabetics. In animal experiments Rhodiola increased blood insulin and decreased glucagon. Rhodiola resulted in a 50 to 80% increase in liver glycogen where excess sugar is stored.

Increases blood supply to the brain and muscles.

Optimizes serotonin, dopamine and other neurotransmitter levels in the brain.

Helps remove ammonia from the body.

Helps maintain high levels of creatine phosphate in the cellular mitochondria.

Activates lipase in long distance runners and swimmers.

Protects against heart attacks. Stress causes adrenalin release which over time can "burn" the heart. Overly contracted heart muscle fibers show "contraction bands" a sign of heart muscle damage found in 86% of heart attack victims.

Rhodiola decreases the amount of adrenalin and cortisol released during stress and protects the heart against "adrenalin burn." Rhodiola also lowers serum fats and cholesterol while increasing the resistance of blood vessels to cholesterol plaques. If that weren't enough it also protects against arrhythmias (abnormal heart beats) by potentiating endorphins (natural opiates that regulate heart beat.)

Immune stimulation. Rhodiola increases immune response while blocking the immune lowering effects of cortisol. In one animal experiment, natural killer cell activity increased with Rhodiola.

Combats cancer. A study in rats showed that Rhodiola decreased tumor growth by 39% and inhibited metastases by 50%.

Fat loss. In a placebo controlled study of Rhodiolaís ability to mobilize fatty acids from adipose tissue, 121 subjects were given either Rhodiola extract or a placebo and their serum lipid levels were tested at rest and after one hour of exercise. The Rhodiola group had 6% greater serum fatty acid levels than the placebo group at rest and 44% greater levels after one hour of exercise. This difference is presumably due to Rhodiolaís ability to activate adipose lipase, a key enzyme required to burn the bodyís fat stores.

Similarly, a clinical study at the Georgian State Hospital (in the former Soviet Union) treated 130 overweight patients for 90 days. At the conclusion it was found that among those who consumed Rhodiola rosea extract, 92% lost an average of 20 pounds while the placebo group lost only 8 pounds on the same diet.

Rhodiola is recommended for anyone suffering from depression or anxiety, anyone requiring more mental alertness, athletes and body builders, anyone prone to develop Alzheimer's disease or who has memory problems, immune deficient or cancer patients, anyone with heart disease, those suffering from obesity, and anyone wishing to increase their sexual stamina. It is especially recommended for anyone whose life is stressful.

Rhodiola: Anti-Aging Medicine
of The 21st Century
Rhodiola rosea (Siberian Rhodiola) -

A large proportion of all aging diseases (perhaps 70-80%) is believed to occur because the stress level is too high, and/or too long-term. High-stress modern living is probably the main factor causing chronic disease and premature aging. Fortunately, Mother Nature has an answer to this challenge - a unique class of herbal products called "adaptogens".
Adaptogens have the broadest spectrum of healing properties of any herbal medicine, but their unique value is that they specifically relieve stress.

How do you feel?
The main effects of adaptogens are an increased availability of energy during the day, a reduction of stressed feelings, increased endurance, greater mental alertness, and deep and restful sleep. Also, adaptogens significantly accelerate the recovery process after illness. The author of this article was ill for many years, and became weaker and weaker, despite trying a variety of medicines and supplements. Doctors could not diagnose the illness, but probably it was an autoimmune disorder, with too many symptoms to name. One day one of his friends sent him roots of Rhodiola rosea from Moscow (Russia) and advised him to prepare Rhodiola water tea to drink. After some trial and error, he found this Siberian root worked better than anything else he had tried; and it increased the effectiveness of other supplements as well. He decided to search to find out more about this wonderful herbal adaptogen.

According to modern science, adaptogens are natural plant products that increase the body's ability to cope with internal and external stress factors, and normalize the functions of the organism. They help maintain the stable internal environment inside the organism known as homeostasis. An important characteristic is that they are safe, possessing few known side effects.

History of Rhodiola rosea
Adaptogens were discovered in 1947 by the Russian scientist Dr. Nicolai Lazarev, who in fact coined the name "adaptogen". Dr. Lazarev was also the mentor of Dr. Brekhman, who conducted extensive research on adaptogenic herbs. Dr Brekhman's first major focus was the now well known Panax Ginseng, also called Korean or Chinese Ginseng. This worked, but unfortunately it has a few drawbacks that have since become evident. It sometimes has side effects such as causing constipation and over-excitement which for some people is too stimulating. Dr. Brakhman soon moved on to other herbs and became recognized as the world's leading expert on adaptogens. Since then, hundreds of experimental and clinical studies on adaptogens have been done - most of them in Russia and Germany. Most of these studies have shown the outstanding stress-protective and immune system enhancing capacities of adaptogens.

You may be familiar with the names of what are now called "first-generation" adaptogens: Panax Ginseng, American Ginseng, and Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng). But in this article I want to tell you about a unique adaptogen of the "second generation", Rhodiola rosea (Russian Rhodiola), which is a powerful anti-aging phyto supplement with adaptogenic and anti-stress activity. In Russia, Rhodiola rosea also known as "Golden root", has been used for centuries to cope with the cold Siberian climate and stressful life. But before describing this unusual herb, let's say a few words about stress itself.

The three phases of stress progression
1) Alarm phase - When some new stress factor strikes the body this causes a sudden release of internal stress-hormones - corticosteroids and catheholamines. If the stress is very intense it can damage the regulatory systems of the body permanently and immediately (for example in the case of exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation); but if one is lucky, or if the person takes adaptogens, than it is possible to smoothly progress further to the "adaptation phase".
2) Adaptation phase - If the stress factor continues (for example, in sport it might be heavy athletic training) our body learns to tolerate the stressful stimulus - "adapt" - and increases its resistance to the stress factor. The "adaptation phase" is usually a safe period. The longer we can stay in the "adaptation phase", the better.
3) Finally, the exhaustion phase appears, when the body fails to fight stress anymore and simply gives up. In this "exhaustion phase", disease symptoms rapidly appear and get worse.

Diseases associated with stress may appear in the first "alarm phase", but they mainly appear in the third "exhaustion phase" when the body cannot fight stress anymore. This third phase usually develops after a period of months or years. Everything depends on the duration of the "adaptation phase". Sometimes the body may be fortunate and escape this third phase altogether, provided it can keep the stress under control. It is possible to do this by taking adaptogens; they can help you to stay in the "adaptation phase" for as long as possible.
