Rhodiola is an adaptogenic herb, which means it has proven benefits relating to your brain and your body. Taken as a supplement, you may find you feel more energetic, better able to handle stress, and more mentally clear than you felt before.
To get all the benefits of rhodiola, you only need to take it daily. One 2012 study found that people who took 200 mg of rhodiola twice per day showed a marked improvement in stress symptoms, functional impairment and overall therapeutic effect and those improvements began to be measurable just three days after they began the trial!
Take an equivalent dose (around 400-500 mg) in the mornings before breakfast or split your dose into two and take them before breakfast and before dinner.
