Like ginseng, rhodiola is an herb used to promote stamina and resistance to physical and mental stress. Nutrients that serve this purpose are known as adaptogens. Individual response to adaptogens varies, but many people find that a high quality rhodiola extract like this one from NOW Foods works faster and more effectively than ginseng, eleuthero or other natural approaches to stress and fatigue. But the key to getting good results with rhodiola is using a good product made from high quality rhodiola source material.
That's much harder than it sounds because rhodiola hasn't been cultivated for the global market for very long, and most of the product comes from very distant regions of Asia. As a result, the source material used for rhodiola supplements varies widely, and it's very hard for a consumer to judge the quality of a given product by the label alone. That's a good reason to use NOW Foods Rhodiola Extract, since no other brand has a better reputation for product potency and integrity. Rhodiola doesn't feel or work like a stimulant; instead, rhodiola raises your fatigue threshold, letting you accomplish more and stay on task longer than otherwise. NOW Rhodiola is becoming a popular and effective way for busy adults to stay focused, balanced and productive despite demanding schedules and lifetsyles.
