What is Rhodiola Rosea Root and why I take it

If you’ve never heard about Rhodiola, let me tell you that is most commonly used for increasing energy, endurance, strength, and mental capacity.  It is also used to help the body adapt to and resist physical, chemical, and environmental stress.

Rhodiola Rosea Root grows at 10,000 feet in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. The root when cut gives off the aroma of a rose. It’s suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans, Gluten Free, Soy Free & Dairy Free.

I started taking Rhodiola Rosea from Brainpower Nootropics 6 weeks ago as a natural supplement to help me fight common daily stress and I can tell you that I definitely feel the difference.

I’m a very organised person so I tend to accept any tasks coming my way because I can always find time to do them, but what I never do is considering taking time off. Nowadays I’m more conscious about it and I make sure my daily schedule is balanced with work, entertainment and relaxing time off. But for the days that are hard to maintain this balance, taking something natural is great support.

I always take two capsules a day with water, they don’t replace any of my meals and I make sure I maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and eating a varied, well-balanced diet.

This is only my personal experience, so if you’re considering using Rhodiola I would recommend you to visit the following link so you’re fully informed:

Acai Berries & the Gym| RCR products review

One of the most important parts of a healthy journey is what you decide to put in your body, but also what you decide not to put on it.


Sometimes our diets aren’t ideal because of several reasons, one of the most common ones being the lack of time to cook something healthy. This is where supplements play an important role.

I believe it’s important to do a bit of research before started taking proteins and different sorts of supplements, so that’s what I did before deciding to try RCR Products.

For my first month at the gym, apart from a healthy diet, I’ve been taking Acai Berry antioxidants.

In case you didn’t know, Acai berry is a dark purple berry that is grown on a palm tree found in the Amazonian rain forest. The highly nutritious berries have been used by the tribe there for hundreds of years because of their extraordinary health benefits.


Getting enough antioxidants is important for those following a strict training routine. And I feel quite energetic after taking these and all I do is take a capsule 30 minutes before I hit the gym and another capsule 30 minutes after the session.

Keep in mind, these are supplements, so I never replace a meal with it.

The reason why I picked these is because they’re suitable for vegetarians and vegans, they’re dairy-free and gluten-free. Contains no added artificial colours, flavourings, preservatives, soy, sugar, wheat or yeast.

Here are the ingredients:

Acai Berry Powder, Capsule: Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) (Vegetarian), Acai Berry 10:1 Extract, Resveratrol, Grape Seed 10:1 Extract (95%), Pomegranate 12:1 Extract.

The good news is! You can get 10% off at checkout on any RCR Products using my code – TIGER10
