Rhodiola promising as antidepressant alternative

Rhodiola promising as antidepressant alternativeMarch 30 2015. The March 15, 2015 issue of the journal Phytomedicine published the outcome of a trial which found a benefit for Rhodiola rosea in major depressive disorder (MDD). The study is the first randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled comparison of rhodiola and a pharmaceutical antidepressant for mild to moderate MDD.

Acting on the hypothesis that rhodiola would have similar benefits as the antidepressant sertraline with fewer side effects, Jun J. Mao, MD, MSCE and colleagues divided 57 depressed subjects into groups that received standardized R. rosea extract, sertraline or a placebo for 12 weeks.  Depressive symptoms, such as insomnia, weight loss or gain, and inability to concentrate were rated before and after treatment.
