Customer Reviews

Excellent supplement
Like many others have said the rhodiola seems to provide a calm and almost anxiolytic focus. Very very sticky though and taste is super bitter.*

very good
arrived fast, good quality product*

Great Product
I use this powder to replace a capsule of Rhodiola that I was taking that had Magnesium Stearate in it. The change over went well and I continue to have very few hot flashes per day and when I do have one, it lasts less than one minute. I am pleased with this product and the small doses I take to keep my hot flashes under control.*

On 2/20/2019 Geraldine said...

I've been enjoying this product for about a week now. I've have noticed my energy levels boosted in the short term. Looking forward to the benefits of Rhodiola down the road, as it is quite potent in balancing out cortisol levels. I dose around 200mg a day, which will last me well over a year. Great value!*

Rhodiola for Energy!
I love this stuff. I bought a capsule
Machine and have been able to make my own supplements thanks to Bulk Supplements. The rhodiola helps to get me going in the mornings and breeze through those afternoon slumps. I can’t complain!*

On 2/1/2019 Sharon said...

1 week and I can tell a difference
This product was recommended to me by my brother-in-law (an MD) to help with stress and help getting rid of the end of a cold (contributing cause was stress). I educated myself on it’s property’s and decided that my husband & I would add it into our daily regimen, which my brother-in-law has done.*

Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside Powder
I got this because the other variety was sold out. Even though it is standardized differently, this is the same plant and this extract has relatively similar properties. Just opening the bag greats you with a very potent smell. Probably best to use portion control, and I would recommend buying a scale from BS when purchasing this item. *

On 12/15/2018 Nate said...

Great Rhodiola supplement
This is a great Rhodiola supplement. It tastes pretty good (for Rhodiola) and seems to work at least as well as the other Rhodiola we have been using.*

On 12/9/2018 PHILIPP said...

My favorite herb. Its a sticky resin-like texture, I recommend capsuling it. I take it in the morning and it gets me going into the flow of my to-do list. A calm focus.

This calm focus presents itself during cardio as well and makes a work-out seem effortless.

When I'm going through an episode of depression this herb helps me see tomorrow.*

On 12/8/2018 Mercedes said...

Rhodiola is one of the few herbal supplements that has helped me with chronic fatigue. Bulk Supplements' rhodiola is very economical; a serving size is 1/16th of a teaspoon, and there are 500 servings in the 100gr size pouch.
I sometimes put the powder in a capsule with the astragalus powder that I also bought from Bulk Supplements, but you can also just mix it in with a beverage because the taste isn't overpowering.

On 11/8/2018 Elizabeth said...

Bitter, strong flavor, encapsulation is best.
This stuff is like natural Aderall without the jitters. it is awesome, I've been using it for a few months now but only on occasion. It's bitter though, I don't prefer to drink it. get yourself some capsules. *

On 11/4/2018 Stacey said...

Mega Energy
After initial minimal dosage found mega energy and wanted to accomplish more than expected in a day, Lasts a long time. Very pungent but pleasurable and earthy taste. I can understand why this is the gateway herb. Will order again soon. Thank you bulk supplements for your diverse products. *

Rhodiola Rosea
This product came at a great quality. The herb gave me a great mental energy boost when I took it in the morning. *

On 7/17/2018 Zachary said...

Rhodiola makes me happy
It mellows my brain out but in a calm non-intoxicated kind of way. I find it to be very potent and 'fresh' in its taste. I've taken other herbs that taste as if they've been open in a warehouse for months. THIS is not that herb. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an effective anxiolytic.*

On 6/27/2018 jamesC said...

Love this stuff!
Rhodiola has so many benefits. I take it 1-2 hours before my workout and I gives me more energy and a better pump. Then I take it again at night and it really relaxes me. Soon as I lay down in bed I am out cold. I definitely helps with sleep quality. I will probably take this everyday with all the benefits it has to offer. Love this stuff!*

Rhodiola Rosea Powder
I've been taking this for a few weeks and have not noticed a big impact yet, but I have huge neurological issues that I've been dealing with, including PTSD and Spinal Ataxia SCA 3, so these issues seem to render everything I take as neutral. I will keep taking this though as the benefits are likely there and just being masked by my other problems. *

On 6/11/2018 DAVID said...

Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside Powder
Fast shipping, despite being to heavy for PO. Great product, looks, tastes, and works just like the much more expensive Rhodiola I was being from a different supplier. Very happy with product, will definitely re-order.*

On 3/27/2018 Dana said...

Great Product
GREAT PRODUCT!!! Rhodiola Rosea is a great adaptogen and does the body good. I supplement with Ashwagandha, turmeric, probiotics and a few other things.

Thanks once again BulkSupplements for all the quality products. *

Unexpected Results
I chose the Rhodiola with salidrosides because I had read it was more likely to be activating and promote energy than the one with rosavins. I took my first dose of 250 mg before work one morning. Riding the train into work, I became extremely drowsy. This is absolutely abnormal for me. I am never drowsy on the way to work. It is, however, very normal for me to have paradoxical reactions to substances. I used to have to wake up a couple hours early to take my extended release Ritalin because it would knock me out cold for about 1-1.5 hours after taking it. Coffee makes me sleepy, too. So, I assume is is just another case of that. I figured I could use it as a sleep aid and took 400mg at bedtime. I had the most incredible and restful sleep. It was wonderful. So, even though it did not do what I had purchased it to do, it is definitely useful. As far as the product goes, as other people have stated, the resealable bag is a bear. Fortunately, I had an extra plastic container with a screw on lid that I was able transfer the powder to. Otherwise, it would have been a precarious situation trying to store the bag, as I could not manage to reseal it. However, if this keeps the cost as reasonable as it is, I am fine with this packaging. The other thing is the taste and manner of ingestion. I take a lot of powder supplements and a lot of them are extremely bitter or sour and they don't bother me, despite the face I make while taking them. Lol. I mix the rhodeola in a bottle with a little water and shake vigorously. The powder mixes, but it causes the water to foam up a lot. The taste is very difficult to describe. It's not terrible and it's not overpowering, yet I hate it and dread it more than any other supplement I take this way. I don't really have an explanation. And it leaves a slight aftertaste of plastic or something of that nature. It's just odd. However, that is a small discomfort to tolerate to get the deep, restful sleep it affords me on the nights I take it. All in all, while I was surprised by the unexpected results, I am deeply pleased.*

Quality Rhodiola
Rhodiola is a great for boosting physical work output while reducing fatigue and recovery (among other things). It has been an amazing addition for my elderly mother as she rehabs from illnesses she has had. It reduces her pain from physical therapy and is helping her grow stronger since she can do more. My former supplier closed up shop leaving me hunting for another bulk supplier with quality products. seems to have a high quality product! After switching over to this supply of rhodiola, I am happy to still see the continuing results as expected. I love rhodiola... it is one of the ultimate adaptogens. Thanks for a great experience and great products. I will be ordering many more products from you guys in the future.*

Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside Powder
The packaging and shipping were excellent, as per BulkSupplements' usual modus operandi. Opening the packaging was better than usual as I was able to avoid getting powder spilled everywhere. Whether that is my increasing skill or a quality of this particular product, I'm not sure. The taste is odd, but not to hard to handle when thrown in a protein shake. Note: It does not dissolve whatsoever, just clumps to varying degrees. As with many naturopathic supplements such as this, I was unable to notice any pronounced effect. Doesn't mean it isn't working, but there it is.*

On 2/22/2017 Andrew said...

Alert and on task
As always, lightening fast delivery. This is a new product for me and I ordered both the 3% Salidroside (this one) and the 3% Rosavin. I read somewhere that the Salidroside is more geared toward Dopamine "responders" and the Rosavin toward Seratonin "responders". Don't know the accuracy of these statements. I have started with the Salidroside, and it's only been a couple of days but I have noticed increased alertness and focus, no doubt. No feelings of pleasure, euphoria, or happiness though. Just more "on task". I plan on continuing this for 2 weeks and then switching to the 3% Rosavin for a comparison. Very nice that BulkSupp has a choice between the two, I have not found the 3% Salidroside anywhere else.*

Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside Powder
Just got this in the mail yesterday. Shipping took a little longer than anticipated,though to be fair that was probably due to the holiday (Thanksgiving). Now I've heard things about the taste of this powder and I will confirm it is light years away from being categorized as pleasant in terms of taste. It's actually pretty bad. This is not not the company's fault, so be forewarned! Now on to the effects. I just took some a little while ago, and there seems to be a small boost in my focus. I'm an engineering student and it's near the end of the semester and I'm hoping that this will combat the late-semester fatigue I'm experiencing. So far so good. The only reason I'm taking a star away is that the packaging for this is pretty hard to seal, making it possible to spill this easily.*

On 12/4/2016 Christopher said...

Good Energy
I took my first amount yesterday. Even though it is very bitter, because I wanted to see if the reviews were true about the energy produced, I took it straight from the package and then left for town. Wow. I let it absorb in my mouth for a few minutes and could feel something happening, but it really kicked in after about an hour. I got a lot done yesterday! I have been having a real issue with fatigue in the last two weeks, so this is a godsend. It gives the energy and you can feel when it is done, but it doesn't drop you like other stuff does. I wouldn't take it later in the day though (after 2 or so). You may be working through the night. Thank you for having this great product. I actually was buying it also for my brother who liked the effects of another product he was using with this in it, but was way much more expensive. I will be encapsulating it for him. I think he will like it, too! *

On 10/30/2016 Debra said...

I was very happy to find the bulk pure Rhodiola at Bulk Supplements. After buying Rhodiola capsules elsewhere (with excipients) with 3% Rosavins for a year, I purchased this one with 3% Salidrosides, and actually notice improvement in focus and mood. So it works better for me. I always prefer to use pure powders and I use a capsule machine which makes it easy to put bulk powders in capsules. I love the selection of pure supplements at Bulk Supplements. Customer service and follow-up is excellent. The supplement comes in a sturdy air tight package, but the ziplock doesn't work for me. I wondered why my daughter has clips on her packages , and now I know...hard to zip and squeeze closed. That doesn't take away from the qualify of the product, of course, and I will be ordering lots of stuff from Bulk Supplements.*

Works for Me!
When I received this product, it came in a very rich and chocately like color. It has a very bitter taste to it, but the first day I took it, I felt great! I'm an avid athlete, and I don't know whether it was placebo but I did 800 push ups, and ran 7 miles in under an hour and thirty minutes. It helps me stay alert and focused on my train of thoughts throughout my day. I love this stuff. This herb also has a great profile for long-term use and it boosts human functionality as you use it in MODERATION and very proper use. I recommend BulkSupplements version of Rhodiola Rosea.*

Wake up BRAIN FUEL and get with it
Received this free sample to try and giving a review. Our brain today is pushed from stress to no unrelenting good mental rest. I took 1/2 teaspoon and let it dissolve in my mouth as my coffee was perking. Immediate brain wake up call, within 10 min.. Clear thinking,focused. Its a mental stamina herb. If the brain is in its right mode the body follows. It is not a physical body herb. But a mind herb for the frontal cortex. If your mental stamina is not there or drive to get things done. This is your go to brain herb.Mental stress constantly whips the brain into a tired mode to the point that when the work day is over there is little left over for yourself. This will clear all the junk out up there and de-stress all the outside stressors coming at you and you'll fly like an eagle thru the storm.Literally. One of the lords little wonders put here to helps us in times of crisis in the world we live in. Fantastic little bitter smooth herb -gets the bittters out of life and smooths things out just like its flavor.*

On 8/18/2016 Shelley said...

Really excellent
As a university student I have long days and I have to stay focused for hours on end. I can't do it for long normally, but this stuff really increases my mental stamina. I put just a bit in some hot water and honey and drink it like a tea in the morning. It actually has a nice flavor, and a little bit goes a long way.*

On 7/26/2016 Eric said...

LOve this stuff.. Potent. something you can feel. the first time i ever tried, a few years ago. i took to much.. 2 grams.. and ended up puking. shortly after i had the most enjoyable day of all time. So relaxed! no anxiety even in challenging positions.!

I dont recommend that dose.. LOL. 200mg is ideal for me now and just as effective;) Enjoy!

RHODIOLA SALDROSIDES 3% for PTS Works miraculously Fantastic!
I first originally ordered this for a friend who has Epstein Barr which causes Chronic Fatigue. It worked so extremely well right away. She took 1/2 teaspoon with in 20 min she said she could feel a lift mentally. By the 2nd hour she was moving and grooving with energy. She said she felt the mental fog and fatigue leave. Me being a X-Marine with PTS that is Post Traumatic stress Syndrome. My dopamine levels are so wiped out from things I had to deal with as a Marine. I have a very hard time concentrating. And I can only deal with 1 thing at a time.If too much comes at me I shut down mentally.With that being said.She felt so good on the Rhodiola Saldrosides I would try it to. WOW. I felt like a new human being.I was thinking crystal clear. Accomplished many tasks in a day effortlessly.I thought when it wore off if I would be down again mentally. I was not. It was so gentle and subtle. I did 1/8 teaspoon at first in the morning at 8am and another at 4pm. Then I thought that the second dose I would not be able to sleep. 10PM fell asleep no problem and woke very refreshed,clear headed for the first time. All I can say is this plant is just one of god's little miracles he created for us to use.And Bulk Suppplements has brought it to us PURE and Clean. Works so well I take it everyday.I put it in my coffee in the morning.Dissolves well.*

Great Product, Great Company
Very fast shipping, great packaging. Very high quality and terrific effects. Work long hours and am constantly under stress. Rhodiola assists in keeping me calm and focused while working at a high tempo. Highly recommended. *

On 3/28/2016 Daniel said...

First let me say that Epstein Barr syndrome comes in ebs and tides > comes and goes. Along with it, it drags in very debilitating fatigue. Which can hold on for weeks to months at a time.I have tried New Chapters 300mg full spectrum. Which helps,but did not have the legs to carry me thru the day.Just barely enough to get me thru work. Each time the Epstein came on. The syndrome part of it would last longer. Thru a friend who is a herbalist told me that certain parts of herbs have a medicinal part depending on what is being targeted.She told me I needed the Saldrosides of Rhodiola.At least 3% she stated as being a adaptagen my body was under hi stress battling the virus. It didn't have nothing left over to give me for daily functioning.As she put it its to busy saving life internally.She recommended 1/2 teaspoon in morning at 6am and maybe at 2pm 1/8 teaspoon as a kicker. But no more than that. Also checking Blood pressure and heart rate prior to taking. ***So I ordered Rhodiola Saldrosides 3%. It arrived fast. Next morning Checking my blood pressure and heart rate. I took her recommended 1/2 teaspoon on a empty stomach but drank my coffee too. Checked my BP/HR thru out the day and was normal. Waited an hour to eat but that did not happen as I was not hungry than. THAN WOW! It was so subtle. Knocked that fatigue 10' underground and in 45min. I was moving around effortlessly with no fatique ALL DAY LONG~~~~~ I felt good and there was no need for a 1/8 teaspoon kicker later in the day. There is no cure for Epstein Barr Syndrome. And all the doctor has told me is rest when it comes on. The singer Cher had it for a long time and it went undiagnosed from all the doctors she saw in the US. A doctor in Europe diagnosed her. My friend said stay on it 4 weeks than titer down to 1/8 teas. By that time it should have passed.So for you people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and or Epstein Barr give this a go.So you can go on living and not live on the couch. GOD BLESS BULK SUPPLEMENTS for there HIGH QUALITY products!!! RIGHT ON!*

Rhodiola Rosea Extract with 3% Salidroside
I have used this herb before for energy and because it is an
adaptogenic herb. I take it to lower cortisol and alleviate stress and
for energy. It is part of a daily cocktail of herbs that I take. It does not seem
to dissolve well in water and remains in a clump, but mixed with other
herbs it's easy to swallow. When I take this herb daily, it does seem to life my mood, but this is subtle and not very apparent. There is a lot of research on this herb online. A short article by Dr. Weil is very informative. here is the link:

On 3/16/2016 Mark said...

Pure and effective
I've used Rhodiola before, but it was the standardized for Rosavins, not Salidrosides. I'll be honest, I didn't notice a different when I took it the first time. However, this product makes me feel like I can keep pushing forever in the gym. It doesn't take much to work. I use about 1/8 tsp. 100g will last you a long time. *

On 3/8/2016 Alex said...

Tastes better than expected
I received the Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside - 100g Pure Powder a few days ago. I took my 5th dose today. The dose recommended is 200mg but since all the reviews I've read state it works differently on everyone, I just chose to take 100mg. in the a.m. and at lunch. I was ready for a horrible bitter tasting herb. It looks, smells and tastes like tea. Not bad at all! I was shocked.

Since I'm not taking the full dose yet, I'm not sure how it will affect me for sure. The first day I got very sleepy after my second dose. Yesterday I did not get sleepy after my second dose. I was wondering if it worked at all, but when I tihnk about it, I was doing hours of paperwork at home which I hate to do. I just took one step at a time and got it done without much angst. Hmmmmm! So maybe it's working. I know this supplement is supposed to give energy which I don't have yet. But it is also supposed to cause some calmness which I did get. I have my husband on it too but he is not as consistent in taking it. Hopefully that will change when he sees how it affects me.

I am going to try the Rhodiola Rosea 3% Rosavin Powder next to compare them. I will take this for when I need to feel calm and the other for when I need more energy. I can't wait to see how this works. It's the best of both worlds.*

Happy Camper
I have used Rhodiola in the past but was not aware that there was more than one form of this Adaptogen. The references to it being beneficial for ADD & ADHD caught my attention since I suspect that I may be afflicted with one of these issues. I really believe that my mind & thinking processes have improved since beginning this product three days ago. As a user of many supplements, it is rare to notice anything significant so will pay attention.
As always my deepest gratitude to Bulk Supplements for great products & service.*

Great Addition to Pre-Workout Stack
I've been adding RHODIOLA ROSEA to my pre-workout supplement stack and after several days I haven begun feeling its effects. My research indicates that this supplement has anti-cortisol properties and I've experienced more more energy to grind through tough training sessions.*

Cabin Fever No Longer
I take this supplement predominantly when the weather starts to turn colder. I always get depressed thinking of winter looming, and this supplement (I take it in combination with some others) does wonders to lift my spirits.

I also noticed I laugh more, I'm more lighthearted, more myself.

I've replaced taking Concerta (for ADHD) with supplements, and this is an essential one because irritability is a big part of ADHD. (It also helps with PMS-related mood swings!)*

On 10/6/2015 Sandra said...

Very fine deep red color, Salidroside is the the right stuff for people in need of some restraint
The purpose of this review is to point out which of the two rhodiola products offered by BulkSuppliments is suitable for which type of person. One type of person would do better with the rhodiola containing 3% rosavins. This is the type of person who would prefer inhibitory (serotonergic) substances such as the SSRIs, like Prozac, or 5-HTP, or taurine, or alcohol to take the edge off off things, to feel more on top of things, to quiet the overactive prefrontal cortex. The second type of person would do better with the rhodiola containing 3% salidrosides. This is the type of person who would prefer excitatory (dopaminergic) substances such as methylphenidate, l-tyrosine, green tea, or maybe the fifth cup of coffee to wake up, to better concentrate and get things done, anything to jack up the underactive prefrontal cortex. This second type of person often has ADD, or ADHD, is often more intelligent, and benefits in nomadic situations, or novel situations, where thinking on one's feet is everything and convention or habit is nothing, such as for those who function kinesthetically, such as those in athletics, or for those who think kinesthetically, who imagine riding on light-beams, such as Einstein.

According to Dr. Daniel Amen, physician and board-certified psychiatrist and one of the foremost experts on SPECT scanning, there are two opposing ways to understand and treat people based on what their prefrontal cortex is doing.

Overactive prefrontal cortex: Typically related to a deficit in the neurotransmitter serotonin. To address this, Dr. Amen recommends intervention that boosts serotonin using one of the SSRI's - Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Lexapro, and Celexa - or naturally, using 5-HTP, L-tryptophan, St. John's Wort, saffron, - or exercise. "... in ten months, exercise beats the socks off of Zoloft."

Underactive prefrontal cortex: Typically associated with poor impulse control such as with attention-deficit disorder (ADD). "Please don't put them on a serotonin drug or a serotonin intervention, because you'll lower their prefrontal cortex more and ultimately make them more impulsive," Dr. Amen warns. "That's why you have the research that came out in the early 90s about Prozac making you kill your mother. Well, in fact, it can disinhibit people, because of what it's doing in your brain. In impulsive people, we want to raise dopamine."

According to Dr. Amen, you can raise dopamine with drugs like Phentermine, an appetite suppressant, or Ritalin, Adderall, or similar stimulants. But you can also do it with green tea and with L-tyrosine. "We've actually seen Rhodiola do something very similar in the brain," Dr. Amen says.

From the website called bluelight, one commenter comparing his experiences with the two kinds of rhodiola has this to say:

"Just as an anecdotal FYI, from my own bio-assays of Rhodiola, it is the salidrosides that provide the dopaminergic effects. Upon my first taking a rhodiola product, i was impressed by the ... distinctly dual action it had. There was a pronounced dopaminergic feel, as well as a pretty strong serotonergic feel.

"Most Rhodiola products contain 3% rosavins and 1% salidrosides, standardized. The reading i did on the web led me to believe that the rosavins were the chemicals responsible for the positive effects. ([On the other hand,] for me the positive effects would be the dopaminergic ones). I purchased a product that claimed to contain only rosavins, its labeling discounting the role of the salidrosides in the effect. Well this product produced a strong and pronounced serotonergic effect. No dopaminergic effect at all. In Nature, the plant has about 5% rosavins to 1% salidrosides. A product i found today had 1% of the rosavins and 1% of the salidrosides. Upon taking a few doses of this, It was evident that there was very little of that serotonergic feel and all of the dopaminergic shone through nicely.

"I deduced from all this that salidrosides may be a likely candidate for the dopaminergic, stimulatory effect of Rhodiola. The sedative , droopy eyed, serotonergic effect that some rhodiola products produce i believe are due to the rosavins. The higher the rosavins, the more serotonergic it felt.

"The product that was only rosavins made me feel like i took a paxil, pretty nasty..."*

Love it!!! Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside Powder
I am telling you that I believe that this herb is changing my life. I first purchased the Rhodiola Rosea 3% Rosavins from Bulk Supplements and that is when I first started feeling like my old self again. I am so grateful. I wanted to try the 3% Salidroside Powder this time and see if I could see a difference. I do believe that my brain is working even better than before. I have a zest for life again; I want to learn more and more. I had a hard time studying and retaining the information but now I can retain the info. I started doing yoga too. I can actually say that I feel like I did in my 20's! I am so happy that I found Bulk Supplements. I am grateful for the bulk powders; I love them. Thank you Bulk Supplements!!!*

Excellent quality from Bulk Supplements; does decrease stress levels
I use this product to make my own Rhodiola capsules because the 3% salisodrides are not available in commercial packaging. The supplement is effective at providing additional energy and allows one to maintain focus on getting tasks done (mental and physical work). Recommended.*

Immediate Cessation of Chronic Fatigue and Brain Fog
I had understood that Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside with 1% Rosavins helps regulate levels of stress, promotes energy and vitality, and provides an overall health boost. I am not a stressed person. If I were, I wouldn't be HealthyHappySenior.

But, I have had 3 severe brain concussions in an 8 month period commencing 5-8-2013 through 1-2-2014. My brain has been healing ever since, and I truthfully have been getting better and better in every way. I have no pain anywhere in my body, and no longer suffer vertigo from the concussions.

But I also have a very underactive thyroid, which has left me with chronic fatigue ever since the mid-1990s. Doctors have never been able to help me with the chronic fatigue. So, I decided I needed to take matters into my own hands and am learning to be a nutritional therapist.

Thanks to finding some time ago, I have been learning how to use supplements to enhance my health and am experiencing fabulous results.

What I didn't know is that my brain has been suffering from brain fog. I thought when I had to reteach myself math concentrating on word problems, relearn colors (I called green things orange, and orange things green.), and successfully accomplished retraining my brain, that I was OK. I even created some visionary type 4x4 ft quilts which used every color in the rainbow and appraisers have valued $2,500 each.

However, because of these 3 concussions, I considered adding this specific product to my daily regime because I simply knew my brain was still healing. I also recently added 1 tsp. of Calcium Citrate, 1 tsp. Magnesium Citrate, and 1/8th tsp. Choline Bitartrate 2 x daily to my diet because through my studies I realized my body was imbalanced with too much calcium and only 26% MDR of magnesium. I've also learned how to make Magnesium Oil to spritz my body to better get the magnesium into my cells.

I say all this because when I commenced this regime with the Calcium & Magnesium Citrates, the incredible and awesome addition of Choline Bitartrate, I simply began to feel better. But, the day my Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside arrived, and I commenced with 1/4 teaspoon 1 x a day, my tongue immediately commenced salivating, and I simply felt the immediate cessation of chronic fatigue I've suffered from since the mid-1990s and complete removal of brain fog -- something I simply did not know I had been suffering from. But, when it lifted, I knew it lifted and was gone!

I really don’t know how long I will continue with Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside; but, for now, it is a daily staple in my diet along with my stack of Calcium & Magnesium Citrates, + Choline Bitartrate. My dosages are higher than what is recommended simply because my body is considered 50% malabsorptive because of Bariatric Surgery more than 10 years ago. I have to double all dosages to achieve any benefit. So, I always listen to our Lord in my mind, when I’m considering the proper dosage for me.

I am so appreciative of this site and all the materials which help me better understand all these products. Thank YOU, www.! By the way, I was asked to write reviews about this and that for bulk supplements, and this is one of the products I selected to review.

Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside - 100g Pure Powder
Rhodiola Rosea 3% Salidroside - 100g Pure Powder is a great product at a great price. It's amazing how long a 100 grams will last.

We recomend that you take Rhodiola with juice or a smoothie because it has a strong taste.*

Awesome service and fast shipping.
Not sure of it's ability to reduce stress as well as l-tyrosine, (for me). I will keep trying this and update.*

love the adaptogen quality!
Adaptogens are a gift to the human body and this product delivers in easy to measure spoonfuls. With an early hysterectomy, Rhodeola Rosea Salidroside 3% is bringing balance back. I mix it in my teas- usually with some vitamin C source, because it is bitter.*

Holy rhodiola!
Amazing product! The 100g bag will last for ages. I can definitely tell it gives me a boost of positivity and vitality without speeding me up uncomfortably like two much coffee. *

Great price for an herb that works
One of the few herbs that work for most people. I work in healthcare and my wife turned me on to Rhodiola. I was skeptical at first but it actually makes a difference. Came across bulk supplements by chance and just got my first order. Product is high quality and at an amazing price.*

excellent so far
Only just started using, but it appears to help my endurance, and I find no digestive issues after taking it. I'll send further reviews after using it for a few weeks or so.*
