Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola Rosea Article

A lot of the reviews we have received about Bluvos Energy is that it makes everything clearer. The Rhodiola Rosea herb included in Bluvos is a significant contributor to that clarity. The herb has some tremendous benefits in providing sustainable energy the body can adapt to, rather than a jolt of something unnatural, followed by inevitable crash.


What we really dig about Rhodiola Rosea is not only that it is able to fight fatigue, but how it goes about doing so. As shown in certain animal studies, Rhodiola Rosea works to balance the usage of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a type of neurotransmitter that transports signals of appetite, pain, behaviour, blood pressure and other triggers that can cause certain stress on the body (for more information on neurotransmitters, check out our in-depth article here). Unbalanced serotonin levels can lead to stress, overexertion and a feeling of being burnt out.


“Unbalanced serotonin levels can lead to stress, overexertion and a feeling of being burnt out.”


If serotonin levels are balanced in the brain, the body feels relaxed, focused and energized. However, Rhodiola does not provide the body with new energy. Rather, the herb helps regulate the brain’s neurotransmitters in a way that makes efficient usage of the energy you already have. Imagine your body is able to naturally provide you more energy because it’s not being burned up by stress or fatigue? Rhodiola Rosea has been shown to help your body naturally adapt to this practice. How cool is that?

In addition to having more energy on a daily basis, Rhodiola Rosea is believed to help regulate mood. In a number of studies on the effects of rhodiola rosea, it was discovered that after regular intake of the herb, some individuals with mild depression experienced fewer symptoms, as did a separate group who suffered from generalized anxiety. According to some physician reports, regular intake of rhodiola rosea may have more rapid positive effects on the body than conventional antidepressants.


“...what rhodiola rosea does is it assists the brain in being able to focus and relax…”

Helps temporarily to:

-Support mental focus and mental stamina †

-Promote alertness and wakefulness †

-Relieve fatigue and symptoms of stress †


Essentially, what rhodiola rosea does is it assists the brain in being able to focus and relax, which the body can form as habit after a while. The Bluvos team really believes in this herb as it is making use of the energy your body already has, rather than injecting it with massive amounts of unnatural chemicals and sugars that may stimulate your body temporarily, but will crash over time. With herbs like rhodiola rosea, your body is adapting and evolving with natural ingredients rather than taking a temporary quick fix through synthetic, unproven substances.

The carefully chosen, naturally sourced ingredients in Bluvos like Rhodiola work together to relieve fatigue, improve mood/ memory and increase concentration. Don’t wait - try Bluvos today and start enhancing your potential.
