How does rhodiola rosea relieve stress?
This medicine contains 200mg of the active ingredient rhodiola rosea. Rhodiola rosea is a traditional herbal remedy used to treat the following symptoms associated with stress: fatigue, exhaustion and mild anxiety. Some researchers have classed rhodiola rosea as an ‘adaptogen’, a type of non-toxic plant used in herbal remedies to help the body handle stress of any kind. Adaptogens like rhodiola rosea are thought to work by interacting with systems in the brain that are involved in the body’s response to stress.
What are the symptoms of stress?
Stress is the body’s response to pressure or threat. It’s an extremely common problem that affects everyone from time to time, especially if we’re going through a difficult time or have a high-pressure job. Too much stress can lead to physical and emotional symptoms, including:
Headaches or upset stomach
Aches and pains
Low sex drive
Low mood or depression
Anxiety or irritability
When these symptoms become overwhelming or last for a long period of time, they can lead to a feeling of physical, mental and emotional exhaustion. This is often referred to as ‘burnout’. If you’re suffering from burnout, you may feel unable to do certain tasks and struggle with motivation. If prolonged or extreme stress is affecting your daily life, you should speak to a doctor for professional advice.
