Rhodiola: Scientific Evidence

adrenal fatigue supplementsRandomized Clinical Trials (RCTs) are considered the highest form of scientific evidence.  A group of people with the same condition are divided into two groups, and randomly assigned to receive the medicine or a placebo.  Neither the patient nor the doctors know which group they are in until the results are assessed.

The following are RCTs in the National Library of Medicine listed when you search “Rhodiola double blind.”

Phytomedicine Mar 2015Conclusions: Although R. rosea produced less antidepressant effect versus sertraline (Zoloft), it also resulted in significantly fewer adverse events and was better tolerated. These findings suggest that R. rosea, although less effective than sertraline, may possess a more favorable risk to benefit ratio for individuals with mild to moderate depression. (9)

The subjects in the Rhodiola/Eleuthero/Schizandra group quickly (two hours after ingestion) gained improved attention and increased speed and accuracy during stressful cognitive tasks, in comparison to placebo. There was also a tendency to reduce percentage of errors, which means better accuracy, quality of the work, and degree of care in the volunteers under stressful conditions. (14)
