Though there are greater than 20 species of Rhodiola, only authentic Rhodiola rosea contains Rosavins. The term Rosavins refers to the three active compounds rosavin, rosin, and rosarin; salidroside is not a useful marker for Rhodiola rosea.
Rhodiola rosea may be effective for improving mood and alleviating depression. Pilot studies on human subjects showed that it improves physical and mental performance, reduces fatigue, and minimizes high-altitude sickness.
Rhodiola rosea's effects potentially are related to optimizing serotonin and dopamine levels due to monoamine oxidase inhibition and its influence on opioid peptides such as beta-endorphins.
In Russia and Scandinavia, Rhodiola rosea, also known as golden root, has been used for centuries to cope with the cold Siberian climate and stressful life.
Jarrow Formulas Rhodiola extract is standardized to contain a mininum of 5% Rosavins, the highest potency available.
