A common complaint among older adults is loss of physical and mental energy. As people age, their cells' ability to produce energy is diminished. Many scientists believe that cellular energy deficit is a critical factor in the onset of many degenerative problems.
The Russian herb Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) has demonstrated a remarkable ability to support cellular energy metabolism. Rhodiola promotes higher levels of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and CP (creatine phosphate) in the cellular power plants known as the mitochondria, thus providing more of the energy molecules needed to perform many daily activities.1
In a human trial, rhodiola aided exercise endurance after just a single dose.2 In another double-blind, crossover human trial, rhodiola increased several measures of mental performance, including associative thinking, short-term memory, concentration, calculation, and speed of audiovisual perception. Statistically significant improvements were reported after just two weeks of supplementation.3
