Rhodiola Rosea 500mg 60 capsules - 5% rosavine, rosine and rosarine | discontinued
Jarrow formulas Rhodiola extract is made from a gold-colored root found in the mountainous regions of Eastern Siberia, which is why it is frequently also called Siberian ginseng. Rhodiola is an adaptogenic herb that has been used for centuries and validated for its beneficial effects on energy production and reduction of fatigue. 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.
Jarrow formulas Rhodiola extract is standardized to contain a minimum of 5% (25mg) rosavins, the highest potency available.

• supported by gold standard clinical trials
Rhodiola rosea boasts robust evidence from both traditional and clinical sources for its benefits in enhancing energy levels and reducing occasional physical and cognitive fatigue. Though there are more than 20 species of Rhodiola, only Rhodiola rosea contains the three active compounds which work synergistically to best promote endurance and increased energy levels. Jarrow Formulas’ Rhodiola extract contains rosavin, shown to help promote a healthy mood; as well as rosin, and rosarin. Standardized to contain a minimum of 5% rosavins, Jarrow Formulas’ Rhodiola Rosea offers a unique, high potency Rhodiola supplement.
A Broad-Spectrum Stress Solution
Grown in the mountainous regions of Europe, Rhodiola rosea has been studied and used for hundreds of years for its performance-enhancing capabilities in healthy populations, as well as its therapeutic properties. Russian researchers first noted Rhodiola’s adaptogenic qualities which allow it to support increased resistance to chemical, biological and physical stressors. A variety of studies have since shown that Rhodiola rosea supports nervous and cardiovascular health, promotes normal neurotransmitter and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis function, as well as positive mood, optimal energy levels and even longevity. It also possesses an impressive safety profile, making it an attractive choice for managing the effects of various stressors.
Enhances energy levels
Rhodiola rosea works on a cellular level to activate the synthesis or re-synthesis of ATP in mitochondria and stimulate reparative energy processes after intense activity, reducing physical fatigue and improving performance and endurance. In one animal study, a dose of 50 mg/kg of oral Rhodiola rosea improved swimming capacity by 24.6% more than Rhodiola crenulata. In a later study, long-term supplementation of Rhodiola rosea significantly reduced fatigue after intense swimming by increasing glycogen content, the energy supply of lipogenic enzyme expressions, and the protective defense mechanisms in Wistar rats. A 2013 study also found Rhodiola roseato support the cardiovascular response to submaximal exercise and to improve endurance and exercise performance by decreasing the perception of effort.
Reduces occasional physical and mental fatigue
Rhodiola rosea is also well known for its ability to modulate physical and mental fatigue caused by short term exertion, and to support cognitive health. A double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized study of 24 participants looked at the effect of Rhodiola roseaon physical capacity, muscle strength, speed of limb movement, eaction time, and attention in an experimental setting. It was found to increase time to exhaustion, VO2 (a measure of oxygen uptake) and VCO2 (a measure of carbon dioxide output) peaks, and improve pulmonary ventilation in a short span of just 4 weeks. Rhodiola also has been found to modulate stress-induced mental fatigue. In a study of 56 physicians, a statistically significant improvement in perceptive and cognitive cerebral health were seen both before and after night shifts over three periods of two weeks. In another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, pre-versus post-treatment cortisol responses to awakening stress were found to be significantly improved in the Rhodiola rosea group compared with controls.
Other research highlights positive findings on Rhodiola’s influence on mood. A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled, 6 week study with parallel groups found improved mood and emotional stability when subjects were given dosages of either 340 or 680 mg/day of Rhodiola over a 6-week period. A systematic review also found Rhodiola to significantly promote a positive mood compared to placebo.
Rhodiola Rosea serves as a powerful nutraceutical backbone when it comes to optimizing mental and physical energy levels and combating occasional fatigue. Jarrow Formulas’ Rhodiola Rosea provides a potent, standardized formula with 5% rosavins, and the three essential active compounds to deliver the full benefits for increased energy levels and reduced fatigue.
Forget about exercising to lose weight: you can't outrun a bad diet!
Feeling sad and stressed due to COVID-lockdown?
Depression in winter time is quite normal, because we aren't exposed to the vitamin D-generating sunrays, which also enhances immunity levels. Fortunately, we can take vitamin D supplements to combat seasonal depression as well as enhance immunity levels.
Another way to chase sadness away is by celebrating, no matter whether that's Sinterklaas, Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas or New Year. We will decorate our houses, exchange gifts and overeat , get a bit tipsy and enjoy ourselves.
This year is different: restaurants, shops and even gyms need to close down and we are not allowed to gather together in groups. Lack of entertainment, retail therapy and exercise will make it much more difficult to overcome feelings of depression.
It gets worse when you are among those who work in the tourism or entertainment industry and have lost your job as well as most of your income.
For now it is probably best to just accept the current state of affairs and try to console yourself with non-edible goods, such as nice music with a good book, entertaining movie, and aromatherapy (perfume/room fragrances).
And, weather permitting, put on your walking shoes and go for a long walk in the forests or local park.
But perhaps you have been feeling too stressed to enjoy whatever you still can do to relax? Or you were already feeling sad before COVID-19 came along? In that case, DHEA might help.
Usefulness of herbal medicine in modern timesNatural plant products have been used throughout human history for various purposes. In fact, written records of the use of herbal medicine date back more than 5000 years, and for much of history, herbal medicine was the only medicine.

These herbs are less expensive and they’re a safer means of treatment than conventional medications, which is why so many people are choosing to go back to this traditional idea of medicine.
How did menstruation become a taboo word?
Why don’t we call menstruation by its name but use expressions like 'auntie Flo comes for a visit'? Euphemisms serve a purpose. They give us words to talk about things that are considered culturally taboo.
Menstruation stigma is a form of misogyny. Negative taboos condition us to understand menstrual function as something to be hidden, something shameful. And by not naming a thing, we reinforce the idea that the thing should not be named.
But have periods always needed code words. Where did these words come from, and how did they come about? Were periods always considered a negative experience?
Menstrual euphemisms and taboos are old. But not all societies view menstruation negatively.
Menstrual taboos are found in the holy books like the Quran or the Bible"
“…in her menstrual impurity; she is unclean… whoever touches…shall be unclean and shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening” Leviticus 15
Taboos on menstruation may have existed before agriculture started or even before languages fully evolved.
Nootropics, what are they and how do they work?Nootropics is the accepted term for substances that enhance learning and memory function.
Nootropics work in various ways depending on the characteristic of the substance.
Some work by enhancing oxygen transport to the brain, an improved energy turnover in the brain, better neurotransmitter availability, or enhancing the creation of other substances that influence brain activity.
