rhodiola rosea

hi been reading about this,i have bought some just thought i would pass the info on


Herb Rhodiola Rosea
Benefits and Side Effects

The herb, Rhodiola Rosea, which is found in the colder climates of Europe, was for centuries used to cure most ailments. For those who suffer from anxiety, depression, stomach problems, fibromyalgia, and other nervous system conditions, this herb can help ease the symptoms and allow the body to heal itself. There have been many studies conducted on Rhodiola Rosea and many have published positive results.

Benefits of Rhodiola Rosea

There are many benefits and a few side effects when using the herb rhodiola rosea.

For people who suffer from neurological disorders, rhodiola rosea may be able to offer the comfort needed to enjoy day-to-day living. The herb acts as a muscle relaxant and also regulates blood flow.

For those who suffer from fibromyalgia, rhodiola rosea regulates the adrenal glands which may not be producing enough cortisol. Cortisol is used by the body to reduce muscle stress and pain. In some people, the adrenal glands secrete too much cortisol and a person may not have enough to sustain them throughout the day. Rhodiola rosea is used to help the adrenal gland slow down and secrete enough cortisol for the entire day. This helps a person who is suffering from fibrolmyalgia to sleep through the night and function normally throughout the day.

Found in large quantities in Siberia, villagers for years have used this herb to cure all illnesses, disorders, and ailments. Used to treat TB, rhodiola rosea did save a few lives.

This herb has been used for everything from headaches and migraines to increasing sexual drive.

It has been shown to improve mental awareness, physical strength and endurance, memory, and sleep patterns. It has also helped those who suffer from intense stress and it has been shown to be one of the best natural treatments for anxiety.




Side Effects and Who Should Avoid It

But there are side effects to all herbs, including rhodiola rosea. Though much less frequent than other herbs, side effects of this herb include irritability, restlessness, and insomnia.

People who suffer from psychological disorders such as bi-polar disorder should not take this herb and should consult a doctor before taking any herb in general. Rhodiola rosea can cause mood swings and hallucinations. This could be very serious, depending how severe the bi-polar disorder is.

Women who are pregnant should not take rhodiola rosea as it can cause anxiety in some women. This can have negative effects on the baby.

People with allergies should also avoid this and other herbs in general. If you are taking medications or other herbal products ask your physician before taking this herb.





More Promising Studies

Although rhodiola rosea may have some minor side effects the use of this herb continues. There are still studies being conducted, but so far this herb has proven itself among many in the medical field and those who have taken it.

Studies are now being conducted that may prove rhodiola rosea's value in treating disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease. This could be a huge breakthrough that could help many older people live normal lives. Finding a cure or at least another way to help treat these diseases will greatly improve people’s lives since anyone can develop them in old age.

In the meantime, rhondiola rosea will still be used to treat those who suffer with muscle spasms, memory loss, anxiety, stress induced disorders, and sleep issues. Finding an herb like this is a gift to many who might not have had any help for their health concerns without it.

Interesting, I'll add not only can Internet meds be dangerous but if the product is a cheap imatation or a watered-down version, you'll mark that product as useless and never find out whether the real thing works or not.

Hi, has anyone been using Rhodiola Rosea long-term, (i.e. longer than a month or two) and if so, has it helped, and have you had any side effects?
