Rhodiola rosea, also known as roseroot, is a perennial plant that grows in mountainous regions of the northern hemisphere in Asia, Europe, and North America.
It has been known since ancient times for its many therapeutic properties and is considered an adaptogenic plant, which means that it helps the body adapt to different types of stress.
The active principles of the plant are mainly concentrated in its roots, which contain organic acids, flavonoids, tannins and phenolic glycosides. The main compounds necessary for therapeutic activity are rhodioloside, tyrosol, rosavine, rosarine, rosin and rhodioline.
Organic acids found in the plant, such as caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid, have antioxidant properties. Numerous studies have been carried out on Rhodiola rosea, mainly in Russia, the United States, Switzerland, Norway, Finland, Japan and China, and have confirmed its effectiveness as a relaxant, nootropic and antioxidant.
Saffron is a spice that has been cultivated for millennia and originates from the regions of Persia, which today correspond to Iran. It is obtained from the cultivation of the plant Crocus sativus L. and is recognized mainly thanks to its yellow-orange color, due to its phytochemicals.
Over the centuries, it has been attributed many virtues, but the best known is certainly its antidepressant effect associated with safranal, an organic compound isolated from this spice.
Saffron is also rich in crocin, a carotenoid that gives it antioxidant and antidepressant properties, and picrocrocin, responsible for its bitter taste. When combined with Rhodiola, another herbal remedy, it can reduce anxiety, fatigue, and mood disorders such as depression.
A study in 45 adults with mild to moderate depression showed that the fixed combination of rhodiola and saffron had significant effects in improving depression and anxiety after 6 weeks of supplementation.
