There are many species of Rhodiola, but it is only Rhodiola rosea that contains the important constituents: the rosavins and salidroside. It is the root of Rhodiola rosea that has been used in Russian traditional medicine. Natural clinicians from China and the West have used Korean Ginseng (Panax ginseng) root for centuries in traditional medicine.Korean Ginseng, referred to here as Ginseng, root contains a mixture of dammarane saponins called ginsenosides. The important ones are ginsenoside Rb1 and ginsenoside Rg1.How Rhodiola & Ginseng Complex Keeps You HealthySupports the body during temporary stress, helps the body adapt to the changes of everyday lifeLife exists by maintaining a complex dynamic equilibrium (homeostasis) that is constantly challenged by internal or external adverse forces (stressors). When faced with stress (physical or emotional) the body starts internal adaptive responses. These responses (involving the neuroendocrine and immune systems) take the body to a higher level of resistance to stress.The stress adaptive system of the body consists of many components.To name a few: the central nervous system (CNS), the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and the sympathoadrenal system (SAS). An adaptive response to stress can involve the body activating the responses of these components.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.*Herbs such as Rhodiola and Ginseng assist the body’s normal adaptation to stress. They may do this by helping the body to:- have a higher level of resistance to stress (so the response is then not so exaggerated)- fine tune the “switch on” and “switch off” systemsPromotes vitality and stamina, maintains general well-beingGinseng promotes vitality and stamina and maintains general well-being. 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.
