ASHWAGANDHA & RHODIOLA: the ancient herbs that your body & mind need
Originally used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, these herbs have become increasingly popular as alternative treatments for increasing energy levels, improving mental performance, and alleviating stress. In this article we will compare the effects of rhodiola and ashwagandha, outlining their respective benefits and drawbacks.
Rhodiola and ashwagandha are both adaptogens with a range of potential benefits. Adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that help your body better respond to stress and promote overall well-being. While both rhodiola and ashwagandha have many similarities, they also have unique differences.
Let's discover each miraculous herb!
Rhodiola, also known as Rhodiola rosea, is found in cold climates on mountaintops and is also known as arctic or golden root, is a medicinal plant that’s been used for hundreds of years for its ability to help with boosting mood, energy levels, and sports performance.
In the 8th century, it’s believed rhodiola was used by the Vikings to fight off fatigue and increase stamina. Over the last years, rhodiola has become increasingly popular. Why?
Modern research points to rhodiola being an effective natural remedy for depression comparable to pharmaceutical drugs. It may help counter stress, fatigue, and anxiety disorders while providing protective health benefits.
- Studies have shown that rhodiola can help elevate a person’s mood by promoting a sense of calmness and well-being, while also enhancing mental energy and focus. This makes it ideal for people who experience occasional stress or who need help staying focused throughout the day.
- Studies also have shown that rhodiola supplementation can result in an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental performance, particularly the ability to concentrate, and decreases cortisol response to awakening stress in those who are experiencing burnout or fatigue.
- Rhodiola is quickly becoming a popular tool for increasing energy levels and aiding in improved physical performance. This root has been used for centuries to help fight fatigue and improve physical endurance.
