Rhodiola (Latin: Rhodiola) is a genus of plants in the Crassulaceae family, also known as “rhodiola” or “golden root”. These plants typically grow in cold climates, including mountainous areas of North America, Eurasia, and North Africa.

However, you are probably interested in the bioactive substance derived from rhodiola, namely Rhodiola rosea or “golden root”. It is a perennial plant that has been traditionally used in various systems of traditional medicine, such as Ayurveda and Tibetan medicine, to improve physical stamina, psychological adaptation to stress, and other purposes.

Studies have shown that extracts of Rhodiola rosea may have adaptogenic properties, helping the body adapt to stress and improving energy metabolism. There is also some evidence of positive effects on psychological well-being, mental clarity and concentration.

However, as with any dietary supplement, it is important to consider individual differences and consult with a physician before starting Rhodiola or any other supplements.
