Rhodiola-EX? is Botaniex’s branded, proprietary line of Rhodiola extracts. Rhodiola belongs to a group of plants that grow mostly in high-altitude or colder regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Its roots produce a light floral odour not unlike that of a freshly picked rose, giving this group of plants its common name, “Rose root.” The species used for horticulture is said to be an adaptogen – a class of herbal ingredients used to improve adrenal system health – making it particularly useful for addressing disorders of mood such as depression and increase mental or physical performance while delaying the onset of fatigue. Traditional Chinese Medicine has utilized Rhodiola to treat altitude sickness, colds and flus, and even a variety of infectious bacterial diseases. Botaniex offers extracts of Rhodiola to the following specifications.

In the spirit of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where treatment of the body as a wholistic system is viewed as the most important aspect of healthcare, Rhodiola’s adaptogen properties are invaluable. Although identification of specific biochemical mechanisms is important for the administration of consistently effective treatments, they fail to account for the larger picture. Rhodiola reduces stress, improves mood, and increases mental capacity by modulating the adrenal system, controlling the release of cortisol and serotonin. These signalling hormones directly affect mood and stress levels, improving these leads to increases in physical performance, reduced fatigue, and a strengthened immune system.
