Rhodiola & Ginseng is used in herbal medicine as supportive therapy to help enhance physical performance (in cases of physical stress), promote healthy glucose levels, and support cognitive function and/or reduce mental fatigue (stress).
In any stressful situation there are both "switch on" and "switch off" responses. The "switch on" system activates energetic and metabolic resources of the body. The "switch off" system protects cells and the body from overreacting to the "switch on" system.
Ginseng promotes vitality and stamina and maintains general wellbeing. Ginseng may do this because of the way it supports the body during the stress response. It contains constituents (the ginsenosides) that are structurally related to the corticosteroids. Corticosteroids have key functions in regulating the immune and endocrine systems that are mediated by the HPA axis.
Rhodiola enhances mental clarity and supports intellectual function. Rhodiola may do this because of the way it supports the body during the stress response. Rhodiola contains phenolic compounds (rosavins, salidroside) that are structurally related to the catecholamines. Catecholamines have important functions in the sympathoadrenal system. They provide a rapid response mechanism that mainly affects the acute ("switch on") response of the body to stress.
