Rhodiola by Now Foods is an adaptogen supplement, in other words, a substance that normalizes the physiological function, is capable to increasing the bodys resistance to stress, trauma, anxiety, depression or fatigue. The Rhodiola rosea plant originates in the artic and alpine regions of Europe, Asia and America, and has been used as a tonic by many cultures, including the ancient Greek. It grows at altitudes of between 11,000 and 18,000 feet above sea level.
It grows in inhospitable areas (where life is not easy) and perhaps this is why it develops natural compounds that have properties that increase cellular energy, increasing chances of survival. Rhodiola rosea also has important proven properties to combat obesity. The rhodiola has the ability to activate the enzyme lipase, which the body needs to decompose stored fat. It also has the ability to reduce levels of the hormone cortisol which the body produces under conditions of stress.
The hormone cortisol has the effect of accumulating fat particularly in the areas of the stomach and the hips. Rhodiola Rosea also seems to have properties for increasing sexual potency in both men and women. In men, it can even help to palliate problems of weak erections and premature ejaculation.
