Rhodiola - Arctic Stress & Energy Manager

Rhodiola - Arctic Stress & Energy Manager

Tuesday, October 17th 2006

With spring well and truly upon us and summer just starting to come into view, it must be time to truly shake off the last vestiges of your winter slumber or your hibernation mode.

Now, with daylight savings here, playtime in the evenings can be fully taken advantage of. If you need a helping hand to get you really motivated and moving then the herb rhodiola, a fantastic adaptogen herb grown high up in the arctic regions of Siberia, may be exactly what is required. Extensively researched by Russian scientists since the 1930's, rhodiola has been shown to improve the body's response to physical and emotional stresses including sport, stress and depression, while also increasing libido.

Further research continued to show the amazing potential of this herb highlighting such actions as helping to increase energy and stamina, and improving attention span, memory and mental performance.

When you feel that you are only just coping, or not coping well, during those inevitable excessively demanding times in your life - either physical or emotional, then let rhodiola come to your rescue. Rhodiola's potential for enhancing energy, stamina, sexual energy and general sense of wellbeing makes it a great choice to assist with the stresses of a busy daily life or the rigours of your chosen sport. Let Rhodiola help you manage your day and help put the spring back in your step.
