Research shows it can help with depression, insomnia and emotional instability. Its anti-fatigue effects and neuroprotective properties may help increase mental performance and overall cognition.
Rhodiola may help repair proteins damaged by stress. Studies have shown a reduction of symptoms including fatigue, lack of concentration, headaches, hypertension, and even digestive symptoms over 8 weeks of supplementation.
