Top Rhodiola Rosea reviews from the Web:


1.  Mood Booster

“This extract is a one of a kind. Usually you find high rosavin extract or high salidroside extract, but not both. I find it gives a smooth energy and mood lift that persist throughout the day. Works best on an empty stomach and works better with cycling.” – Djones, Liftmode Rhodiola review  “I purchased Rhodiola and so glad I did! I noticed a very good mood improvement and clean energy boost. It helped me get my house clean and laundry done! I worked all day long without getting tired! I will definitely purchase again!” – Gretta M., Liftmode Rhodiola review  

2.  Anti-fatigue and Mood-Enhancing Effects 

“Highly recommend this product! This is the absolute best mood-lifting and anti-fatigue product I have ever taken. A safe natural herbal root grown in Scandinavia. The benefits are outstanding and have enhanced my life in such a positive way... Great for working out or any activity. What a wonderful mood lifter! A superb product for everyone. Highly recommended!!”– Kevin K., Liftmode Rhodiola review “I have used this several times to shake a mild depressive state and only came to discover this positive side effect by accident. I was originally using Rhodiola Rosea for its other benefits. I don't have the more serious forms of depression, so I can't speak to that, but the kind of doldrums I get from time to time have been beaten repeatedly. I used 400 mg each morning and after about 4-5 days, my mood improved and I was back to myself. Now, I use 300 mg daily to maintain a positive mood.” – P., Liftmode Rhodiola review  

3. Unreal Change in Mental and Physical State

“This herb is simply AMAZING! And it's really hard for me to understand how it is not catching on more quickly in mainstream society. I found out about Rhodiola online and have yet to meet one other person in my life who knows about this herb. At least until I started ranting and raving about it to them. It's become obvious to me that taking the right dose is extremely vital in the effects I see from this herb. I started off taking 500 mg/day and felt slight increases in stress reduction and I was able to exercise longer without feeling fatigued.   After one month of taking the product, I have noticed an absolutely unreal change in mental and physical state. I went running yesterday and was able to run much longer than in the past. My respiratory system seemed to be working 10 times better than in the past. Note: I am a light/moderate cigarette smoker. I can imagine the possibilities if I were to give that up, and actually since started taking Rhodiola I haven't had as much of an urge to smoke. Mentally I have been going through a very stressful time in my life… But somehow I feel an extraordinary sense of optimism. I feel like no matter what happens I will be able to accept it and deal with it. I feel so much more resourceful and focused than I have ever before. Any time I have a problem pop up I am knocking it out right away without hesitation. My mind seems to be coming up with all kinds of solutions to all the little problems I have been facing recently. I have so much energy I just don't know what to do with myself. Usually, I would never write this long of a report on something, but it has been effortless. The only side-effect I can think of is it's been a little bit harder to sleep at night. My body wakes up at 3 in the morning and is ready to go like it's the middle of the afternoon and I have to force myself back to sleep. In summary, this has been truly an amazing and life-changing herb for me. I am really surprised to see how little press and hype it has gotten in recent years. Give this herb to everyone in our population and this country would transform overnight.” – Jake., Erowid.org review [1]  

4.     Stuff Smell, Tastes and Mixes Great

“This stuff smells, tastes, mixes great. Overall the effect is more endurance and feeling more on towards the end of the day. Recommended over coffee!” – James B., Liftmode Rhodiola review “I've been using Rhodiola for a long time and really like it. Liftmode Rhodiola is better than most. The powder is really fine, easy to mix. And their extract is very good. As an added benefit, you can see lab analyses and be certain of what you order.” – Kardo A., Liftmode Rhodiola review  

5. Stimulates Mental and Physical Performance Without the Negative Effects of Caffeine

I have been consuming 350 mg. R. rosea in pill form every morning for the past month. In retrospective summary, I can say the following:
  • Rhodiola rosea is mentally stimulating, yet does not contain any of the negative effects associated with other stimulants I have used, such as caffeine or amphetamine. 
  • Rhodiola rosea increases physical endurance, easily noticed in aerobic activities such as running, and swimming.
  • Rhodiola rosea provides me with a clear state-of-mind, and a general sense of peace. 
  • Rhodiola rosea is wonderful.
– Dan, Erowid.org review [2]  


From our own experiences and those posted by users online, the Rhodiola is an exceptional mood-lifting supplement. Customer feedback is consistently indicating that the herbal supplement has improved the quality of their lives in some way. Most mention a noticeable change in energy, cognitive functions and ability to handle stressful situations. People around the web seem to agree with the plant’s therapeutic properties of stabilizing energy levels and increasing mental and physical performance. As an adaptogen, Rhodiola supports the body’s needs at a given time, meaning it promotes relaxation in moments of stress, and stimulation, when fatigued.
