Rhodiola Rose Extract May Help Improve Mental Function

Rhodiola rosea, also known as "golden root" or "arctic root" in the mountainous parts of Europe and Asia, has long been employed in Eurasian traditional medicine as a natural tonic. Its roots are considered adaptogens, meaning they may help your body adapt to stress when consumed. A recent study suggests that supplementation with Rhodiola rose extract may help improve mental speed and resources. 

Fifty health adults participated in the study. They received 400 mg daily of Rhodiola rose extract for 12 weeks. Neuropsychological tests were administered at baseline, week 6, and week 12. The tests included the attention network task, the Go/No-go test, a divided attention test, a number connection test, and a dual task paradigm.

At the end of the study period, participants showed significant improvements in total reaction time, orienting effect, and executive effect. On the dual task paradigm test, participants showed significant reductions in reaction time at varying levels of difficulty, as well as a highly significant reduction in errors.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Lubeck. It was published online ahead of print on June 27, 2020 in the journal Phytotherapy Research.
