The extract from the root of Rhodiola Rosea is called Rhodiola Rosea extract, which has a sweet smell and a bitter taste. Its main ingredients are salidroside, aglycone tyrosol, and rosavin, which have the effects of enhancing immune function, protecting cardiovascular and cerebrovascular, and anti-cancer and anti-depression.
Pharmacological effects of Rhodiola Rosea extract:
1. Anti-fatigue effect: Oral administration of Rhodiola Rosea can prolong the pole climbing time, swimming time, and load swimming time of mice. It can shorten the time required for recovery after fatigue, and improve enzyme, RNA, and protein levels so that muscles can recover as soon as possible after fatigue.
2. Effects on the central nervous system: Rhodiola Rosea can normalize the content of serotonin in mice under swimming conditions, that is, the content of the central nervous system from the normal dune is corrected or reaches the normal level. Mice injected with salidroside (30-300mg/kg) can reduce the level of serotonin.
3. Anti-hypoxia effect: Oral administration of the extracts of Rhodiola Rosea, Rhodiola Serrata, and Rhodiola crimsonum can make the experimental animals show obvious antagonism to various hypoxia modes, and its effect is stronger than that of ginseng and Acanthopanax senticosus.
4. Anti-aging effect: The alcohol extract of Rhodiola Rosea can improve the activity of red blood cells and liver SOD in rats, and has a tendency to increase the activity of myocardial SOD. Red wild flax flies taking Rhodiola Rosea extract can significantly prolong their lifespan, and the lifespan extension rate is better than that of ginseng.
