    Hi Dave! Great subject! Are there any websites where I could find out about studies on Rhodiola Rosea? I have heard in the past about Golden Root (which is the same, right?) and how is not necessarily recommended to use for long periods of time for its side effects. I wonder if this product you are talking about has a different consistency, or if people have missused Golden Root. It is such a beautiful and powerful plant. Thanks in advance!

      Hey Jackie, 

      The golden root is rhodiola rosea. The latter is the scientific name of the former. 🙂

      If you want more information on the supplement, you can check out the article on webmd for it. Here’s the link to the resource.

      Coming to its long use, it is not recommend for people to use the supplement for more than 10 weeks if you want to keep enjoying the benefits without any problems.

       So it is not that people make the wrong use of it, it is the nature of the plant and it’s limitations.

      I hope this answers your questions. If you have more be sure to let me know by replying to this comment. 🙂

    Hi Dave:

    My brother has considered using this product.

    Do you have any information on how Rhodiola will interact with antidepressants like Effexor?

    I would be very interested to learn if you come across further studies concerning longevity.

    Thanks for this review as there is so much stress in our world. It is good to know that Rhodiola can boost mood as well as enhance cognitive abilities. As far as I know, pharmaceutical antidepressants can’t enhance cognitive function.

    This sounds like it could be a replacement for antidepressants.

    I greatly appreciate the posts you have for increasing brain power. It looks like there are so many things one can do to accomplish this!

      Hey Christopher, 

      Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

      Effexor is known to act on serotonin in the brain and some studies show that rhodiola rosea could be doing the same. And this causes the risk of causing serotonin syndrome, which is not something you want to have. So great caution would be advised before you actually combine them.

      I think checking in with your doctor would be the best move since they will assess your health condition as well as the potency, benefits and side effects of both of the product and give you the best answer.

      I hope this helps. 🙂

    One thing I’ll definitely say about Rhodiola Rosea, is that it’s a good price for a health and wellness product. $12.99 for 100 capsules is actually really good. I’ve seen similar products that are more like $50 or so.

    If it’s good for brain function, then I’m very interested, especially at that price. I do loads of writing and sometimes need some sort of brain booster (besides caffeine) to keep me going. I’ll take a look at these.

      You are welcome Darren, 

      I also agree that the price is pretty affordable and well worth the quality you are getting in exchange. I have also seen quite a number of overpriced products that appear to be of great value on the hearing but end up disappointing folks very much.

      You should surely look into rhodiola rosea and get to experience the kind of good benefits it brings yourself. And be sure to let us know how you find it. Okay?

      Have a good one. 🙂
