Rhodiolin (Rhodiola rosea) is a member of the Crassulaceae family of plants, and grows in cold regions of the northern hemisphere. It is found in the arctic regions of Siberia, and in more temperate climates, it is restricted to mountainous regions. Rhodiolin is rich in several beneficial nutrients including flavanoids, tannins, essential oils, and antioxidants. Most of the health interest in rhodiolin, however, is because of its content of several types of phytochemicals called phenylpropanoids. Phenylpropanoids in rhodiolin such as rhodioniside, rosavin, and rosiridin appear to be responsible for Rhodiolin’s adaptogenic properties. An adaptogen is a substance that helps the body cope with, and resist adverse conditions such as mental or physical stress, and exerts a normalizing influence on the metabolism.
Several different monoamine neurotransmitting hormones (eg: serotonin, dopamine) play an important role in regulating mood, sleep, attention, cognition, motor activity and sexuality. These neurotransmitters are broken down by the enzyme monoamine oxidase (MAO). Some studies have suggested that the phenylpropanoids in rhodiolin may play a role in inhibiting the action of MAO, and thus may help to optimize the level of the mood elevating neurotransmitters. Some studies have also indicated that rhodiolin may support the level of beta endorphins in the body. Beta endorphins are natural analgesics (pain relievers) produced in our body.
Supplementation with rhodiolin may provide nutritional support for stress relief, mental alertness and vitality, and a general feeling of well-being.
