1. Rhodiola Rosea
Rhodiola rosea is an herb that’s been used in traditional medicine for centuries. It’s native to high-altitude areas in Europe and Asia. And it’s an adaptogen, which means it helps your body adapt to stress.
Studies show it may lower levels of harmful hormones like cortisol your body pumps out during high-stress times. It’s also been shown to improve heart function and alleviate stress-related heart issues.
Research shows it improves mental performance too, which is why it’s become a popular nootropic. Plus, it enhances concentration, reduces fatigue and decreases symptoms of depression and anxiety.
