The new Mendi CBD Energy Drink Tablet delivers a blissful boost of energy and renewed focus to help you fight fatigue and conquer your day. Combining Oregon sourced hemp CBD with other botanicals, nootropics, electrolytes and adaptogens these 25mg, 10ct tablets are an effective, all-natural way to improve your hydration and feel your best. One of the most exciting aspects about our new formula is the inclusion of the plant adaptogen, Rhodiola Rosea. Below are three powerful ways Rhodiola Rosea contributes to the advanced efficacy of the CBD Energy Drink Tablet.
Rhodiola is a natural adaptogen whose roots are known to help with relieving stress. Found in cold, mountainous regions of Europe and Asia, it contains over 140 active compounds which have been used for centuries especially, in Russia and Scandinavian countries as a regular dietary supplement, used in traditional medicine, to treat a variety of conditions.
One of Rhodiola’s best documented benefits is its ability to fight fatigue and other symptoms associated with stress. Whether the fatigue is from inadequate sleep or excess external stress, Rhodiola can combat the feelings of physical and mental exhaustion.
One study followed individuals with chronic fatigue using Rhodiola for 8 weeks and found significant improvements in stress symptoms, fatigue, and concentration after just 1 week of use, continuing to improve through the end of the study.
The past few years have taken a toll on our collective mental health. In fact, 3 in 5 Americans report being more stressed out and exhausted now than ever before. There is also compelling evidence that working from home can actually negatively affect our energy levels.
Research has shown that Rhodiola may be an effective aid to the symptoms of depression, stress, and anxiety. Similar to antidepressants, it appears to positively influence neurotransmitters that affect our mood and emotions, naturally.
One study compared the effects of Rhodiola to a common antidepressant, Zoloft. In the study both substances reduced the symptoms of clinically depressed patients. While the Zoloft had a slightly greater effect, the all-natural Rhodiola, produced fewer side effects and was better tolerated by the participants.
Recently, Rhodiola has been claimed to improve sports performance and endurance by reducing mental and physical fatigue and increasing antioxidant levels.
One early animal study found Rhodiola improves muscular power and strength. Another found Rhodiola shortened the reaction time and response time in young, physically active men and increased their antioxidant activity.
It is believed that Rhodiola may decrease the perceived exertion, or how hard you feel like your body is working, and therefore increasing overall performance and endurance.
More research is needed in this area, but many early results have made Rhodiola a very popular daily supplement for active people looking for an all-natural aid that is safe and effective, and with low risk of side effects.
