How Does Rhodiola Rosea Help with Stress?
Life can be stressful. We all have had to deal with emotional stress and know it can make you feel run down. Of course, anyone who works out or exercises knows the effects of physical stress on the body. Stressing the muscles can lead to some positive results, but the physical stress on the body can take its toll. Let’s not forget the environmental stress we face everyday – smoke in the air, pollutants in our food and water, toxins from our plastic bottles… the body is exposed to a whole host of stressors daily.
All of this stress has a number of negative consequences for the human body. Our body releases a hormone called cortisol when we are stressed. If we experience a great deal of stress we end up with too much Cortisol in the body and this can cause a host of problems.
All of this stress has a number of negative consequences on the body. When we experience stress, a complicated series of chemical and neurological systems jump into action - most famously our body releases a hormone called cortisol when we are stressed. If we experience a great deal of stress we end up with too much cortisol in the body, causing a host of problems.
It is a not a good idea to run your body in a constant state of stress. As you can imagine all this stress can damage our mitochondria and, therefore, decrease cellular energy. Rhodiola rosea can calm the stress response system and simultaneously support the parasympathetic nervous system and as we just discussed, Rhodiola can help increase our cellular energy.
Finally, we all know that stress has a real mental aspect on our body, it can get us down, depressed, and generally unhappy. Rhodiola rosea stimulates the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, that are crucial for making us feel happy and energetic.4
