Rhodiola extract 5% | Rhodiola rosea

Properties: Roseroot is one of the strongest known adaptogens. Plants in this group have generalized, positive impact on the organism and cause no side effects. Like the name suggests, adaptogens help the organism to adapt to the external conditions. The most important property of roseroot extract is its ability to reduce stress, which translates to a wide range of benefits. Foremostly, it protects the nervous and cardiovascular systems from the damage caused by stress hormones. Moreover, it increases our capacity to stay calm, even in demanding circumstances. Apart from that, roseroot influences the neurotransmitter secretion, particularly dopamine and serotonin. By upregulating their activity, it supports concentration and helps to maintain energy – especially after a long day. Further, it boosts the mood. Its generalized effect on the organism improves the functioning of practically all important systems and organs. Additionally, roseroot benefits the condition of the skin. Therefore, it is often used in cosmetology, especially as an ingredient of products that aim to protect the skin from damage or negative consequences of aging because of its strong antioxidant properties. It neutralizes free oxygen radicals and thereby protects the structural proteins from damage. This way, roseroot extract slows down the process of tissue aging. The skin becomes more flexible and tender which brings back its youthful appearance. Moreover, this herb prevents the loss of moisture and delivers important nutrients. Thus, it is often used in products recommended for sensitive, allergic, or impure skin. The ability to stimulate hair growth is an additional advantage of roseroot extract. Not only does it strengthen the entire length of each hair, but it also brings back their springiness and prevents frizzing or falling out. For these reasons it is often included in products designed for mature hair care. Effectiveness of Rhodiola rosea has been known and exploited by herbalists for centuries. Interestingly, roseroot was primarily used in Europe, although Chinese traditional medicine also mentions its healthy properties.

Occurrence: Roseroot (Rhodiola rosea) is a perennial plant from the Crassulaceae family. Usually it grows at high altitudes and in arctic areas. In Poland it can be found only in the mountains, in the national parks of Sudety and Karpaty. Its root, when rubbed, has a nice, rose-like smell – and hence the plant’s name. The properties of roseroot have been known to the locals for millennia. It belongs to the traditional medicine of Russia, Scandinavia, and the Far East. In Europe, herbalists have used it because of its calming properties for over three thousand years.

Biochemistry: Roseroot contains about 140 biologically active compounds. For therapeutic purposes the most important are three phenylpropanoids: rosavine, rosine and rosarin. Interestingly, they occur only in this plant. 

The root of R. rosea also contains carbohydrates, tannins, fats, proteins, minerals (manganese, copper, zinc, chromium, cadmium, cobalt, nickel and selenium), vitamins and organic acids (e.g. succinic acid, tannic acid and malic acid).

Fun fact: Chinese emperors used to send entire expeditions to Sibir, in order to collect supplies of roseroot. They believed it is going to provide them with long, healthy life and also improve their sex life. In the West, the first records of the healing properties of rosary root come from the Greek physician Dioscorides, who in 77 CE described its use in “De Materia medica”.

How does Rhodiola extract 5% | Rhodiola rosea work?

Reduces tiredness: Roseroot’s ability to reduce both mental and physical exhaustion has been thoroughly investigated. There are also reports that mention a positive influence of roseroot extract on the organism’s efficiency in conditions with limited access to oxygen, such as at high altitudes. However, research that measured solely physical performance did not bring spectacular results, as only a slight increase in stamina was observed. Nevertheless, in the cases of generalized exhaustion, the results were more than satisfying. Scientists documented an improvement of cognitive skills such as concentration and memory, accompanied by shortened reaction time. All this was exhibited by participants, who just completed a long and demanding series of tasks – such as a night shift work. Furthermore, roseroot extract helped to relieve the chronic fatigue syndrome which is becoming an increasingly common issue in our civilization.

Supports cognitive abilities: The dentate gyrus, a brain structure located in the hippocampus, is responsible for memory processes, and thus for our capacity to learn and associate facts. Various studies, including clinical trials and animal research performed in vitro, have demonstrated that the supplementation of roseroot extract benefits particularly the functioning of the hippocampus. Scientists have observed that the activity of its neurons intensified after administration of roseroot, therefore improving cognitive abilities. What is more, they noticed an increase in serotonin density in the hippocampus, which results in the enhancement of neurogenesis – a process in which new neurons are formed. Active compounds found in R. rosea extract have inhibitory influence on the enzymes that decompose serotonin and dopamine (MAO, COMT). Thus, the density of these neurotransmitters increases and they remain in synaptic clefts for a longer period of time. This in turn leads to a positive effect on motivation and cognitive performance.

Supports a good mood: Traditionally, roseroot extract has had many applications. Yet, most often it was used for its calming effects. Modern research reveals the mechanisms underlying its toning properties. As it turns out, roseroot has the ability to increase the activity of serotonin in the central nervous system. Serotonin is often called “the happiness hormone” because it is mainly responsible for mood control as well as stress resilience. What is more, R. rosea limits the uncontrolled secretion of stress hormones such as cortisol or epinephrine. Therefore, supplementation with this herb improves our ability to operate in tough conditions.

Improves general health: Negative consequences of stress are commonly known. Chronic stress is not only detrimental to psychological well-being but also can lead to physical diseases. Since roseroot extract decreases the amount of stress hormones (corticosteroids and catecholamines), it protects all bodily organs, especially the heart and the cardiovascular system from their harmful effects. Moreover, it has strong antioxidative properties, which is particularly important if we want to maintain good health of the nervous system as we age. Lastly, research with animal models suggests that roseroot can decrease the blood sugar level by supporting glucose transport from blood flow to the cells.
