Rhodiola Rosea: A Superfood for Superhuman Performance
Today we’re taking a closer look at one of CortiZen’s core ingredients, Rhodiola Rosea, which is a powerful adaptogen that has tremendous fat-burning and energy-enhancing power, and significantly improves mental focus.
The Rhodiola plant grows at high altitudes in the arctic areas of Asia and Eastern Europe, often in harsh climate conditions where few other plants could survive. It was used regularly by the Vikings for increasing strength and energy, and for centuries the Sherpas have used it to help them climb at high elevations. Today, many professional athletes use Rhodiola to optimize their performance, enhance their motor skills and reaction time, and improve their recovery.
Although it is traditionally used for increasing energy and boosting physical performance, Rhodiola provides a powerful soothing response to the body and is highly effective for reducing stress and inflammation. It helps both your muscular and neuromuscular system to adapt and respond positively to a variety of stresses, making it the ideal natural remedy for high-stress environments and people who suffer from chronic inflammation.
Rhodiola is also a proven healing herb for reducing and repairing fatigued and exhausted adrenals, making it highly effective as a natural metabolic booster. Rhodiola has been extensively studied in modern medicine and is clinically proven to have a powerful lipolytic effect, meaning that it directly stimulates a fat burning response.
A controlled placebo study done on 130 overweight patients at Georgian State Hospital showed that taking rhodiola rosea extract daily led to an average weight loss of 19 pounds (11% reduction in body fat), compared to only 8 pounds of fat loss by the placebo group eating the exact same low calorie diet!
A single dose of CortiZen contains the precise amount of active medicinal ingredient that was used in this medical study, so you can be sure that you are getting the most powerful, medicinal quality potency with CortiZen.
Now that you’ve seen how Rhodiola can benefit the body, let’s take a look at how it can benefit the mind and emotions.
Rhodiola has been extensively studied and clinically proven to improve the health of your brain and fight anxiety and even depression
It enhances your neurological health, especially supporting two neurotransmitters that are essential for mood and mental function, serotonin and dopamine. The health of these neurotransmitters are crucial for sharp focus and memory, and have a massive impact on the ability to stimulate the feeling of happiness and pleasure.
In a clinical trial with 150 individuals suffering from depression, participants were given Rhodiola daily for one month. At the end of the trial, two-thirds of the group had full remission of depression symptoms and daytime weakness had also greatly improved.
Two out of three people taking Rhodiola daily for 30 days experienced a complete reversal of their depression symptoms. This is life-changing results, simply from taking ONE of the core ingredients from CortiZen.
Let’s recap on this incredible adaptogen healing plant, Rhodiola.
