The first layer of understanding these benefits involves appreciating its ability to help people endure both physical and mental stress while increasing their energy and focus. But this basic understanding simplifies the specific chemical and hormonal functions of Rhodiola rosea developing beneath the surface as one supplements his or her lifestyle with this adaptogen. And with a greater understanding of these deeper functions, you may come to better understand the promise of lesser known potential benefits of taking this extract.

These lesser known benefits are what really excite me and make me wish more modern universities were conducting more comprehensive research, especially because these benefits may come from a supplement with such a low toxicity and so few negative side effects.

Rhodiola Rosea Pharmacology, Phytochemistry and Standardization

Discover the groundbreaking research conducted by Dr. Zakir Ramazanov to reveal why rhodiola rosea is the species with the most promising benefits. Yes, there are several species and you need to understand why this is important when evaluating different rhodiola supplements.

Many people may not realize it, but many rhodiola supplements use other species as a substitute or more accurately, as an adulterant. Specifically, rhodiola crenulata, while containing a promising concentration of salidrosides, lacks the rosavins associated with the most potent benefits, yet it is often found in otherwise seemingly respectable remedies suggested for herbal stress relief.

Dr. Zakir Ramazanov also collects several references to research that verifies or corroborates rhodiola rosea’s promise, despite it manifesting so few side effects. With a broad range of mental and physical benefits evident in a number of studies conducted across multiple continents over several decades, it seems this safe and promising herbal remedy deserve more comprehensive research and consideration by the scientific community.

After you read this research and assess the tables and diagrams constructed by Dr. Ramazanov, you will better understand how to examine the different rhodiola supplements available to you and why you might consider this remedy in the first place. Continue reading
