The aim of the study was to assess the efficacy of the standardised extract SHR-5 of roots of Rhodiola Rosea L. in the treatment of individuals suffering from stress-related fatigue. The phase III clinical trial took the form of a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study with parallel groups. Participants, males and females aged between 20 and 55 years, were selected according to the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare diagnostic criteria for fatigue syndrome. A total of 60… Expand

Double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised study of single dose effects of ADAPT-232 on cognitive functions.
TLDR
The subjects in the ADAPT-232 group quickly gained improved attention and increased speed and accuracy during stressful cognitive tasks, in comparison to placebo, which means better accuracy, quality of the work, and degree of care in the volunteers under stressful conditions. Expand
Effects of an Adaptogenic Extract on Electrical Activity of the Brain in Elderly Subjects with Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Two-Armed Cross-Over Study
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that Adaptra® Forte exhibits a calming and anxiolytic effect without sedation, and is associated with overall stress-protective activity. Expand
Actaea racemosa L. Is More Effective in Combination with Rhodiola rosea L. for Relief of Menopausal Symptoms: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
BC is more effective in combination with RR in relief of menopausal symptoms, particularly psychological symptoms and RR-BC significantly improved the QOL index in patients, compared to BC, BC500, and placebo, mainly due to the beneficial effects on the emotional and health domains. Expand
The effect of Gami Guibitang (GGBT), a medicinal herbal formulation, on moderate depression
TLDR
Compared to placebo, GGBT treatment increased morning cortisol level which could be associated with the improvement in Bodily Pain in these patients suffering from moderate depression. Expand
Rhodiola rosea in Subjects with Prolonged or Chronic Fatigue Symptoms: Results of an Open-Label Clinical Trial
TLDR
2 × 200 mg WS® 1375 may be an effective treatment in subjects suffering from prolonged or chronic fatigue in an uncontrolled, open-label multicenter clinical trial. Expand
Therapeutic Effects and Safety of Rhodiola rosea Extract WS® 1375 in Subjects with Life‐stress Symptoms – Results of an Open‐label Study
TLDR
Rhodiola extract at a dose of 200 mg twice daily for 4 weeks is safe and effective in improving life‐stress symptoms to a clinically relevant degree. Expand
Burnout: Evaluation of the efficacy and tolerability of TARGET 1® for professional fatigue syndrome (burnout)*
TLDR
TARGET 1® significantly improved the symptoms of burnout after 12 weeks’ use and the verum group consistently showed significantly greater improvements in scores than the placebo group. Expand
The Effects of Rhodiola rosea L. Extract on Anxiety, Stress, Cognition and Other Mood Symptoms
TLDR
Rhodiola rosea L (Vitano®) presented a favourable safety tolerability profile and it is unlikely that the findings were the result of placebo effects as changes appeared gradual and were specific to certain psychological measures. Expand
The Effects of an Acute Dose of Rhodiola rosea on Endurance Exercise Performance
TLDR
Acute R. rosea ingestion decreases heart rate response to submaximal exercise and appears to improve endurance exercise performance by decreasing the perception of effort. Expand
Adjunctive Treatment with Rhodiola Crenulata in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease – A Randomized Placebo Controlled Double Blind Clinical Trial
TLDR
Rhodiola crenulata (RC) did not improve the six-minute walk test distance but significantly improved tidal breathing and ventilation efficiency, most likely through improvements in work rate, and tended to protect against acute exacerbation of COPD. Expand

A double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study of the stimulating and adaptogenic effect of Rhodiola rosea SHR-5 extract on the fatigue of students caused by stress during an examination period with a repeated low-dose regimen.
TLDR
The overall conclusion is that the study drug gave significant results compared to the placebo group but that the dose level probably was suboptimal. Expand
A randomized trial of two different doses of a SHR-5 Rhodiola rosea extract versus placebo and control of capacity for mental work.
TLDR
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group clinical study with an extra non-treatment group was performed to measure the effect of a single dose of standardized SHR-5 Rhodiola rosea extract on capacity for mental work against a background of fatigue and stress, showing a pronounced antifatigue effect reflected as a ratio called AFI. Expand
Rhodiola rosea in stress induced fatigue--a double blind cross-over study of a standardized extract SHR-5 with a repeated low-dose regimen on the mental performance of healthy physicians during night duty.
TLDR
The results suggest that RRE can reduce general fatigue under certain stressful conditions. Expand
Clinical trial of Rhodiola rosea L. extract SHR-5 in the treatment of mild to moderate depression
TLDR
It is concluded that the standardized extract SHR-5 shows anti-depressive potency in patients with mild to moderate depression when administered in dosages of either 340 or 680 mg/day over a 6-week period. Expand
Comparative study of Rhodiola preparations on behavioral despair of rats.
TLDR
Piperine in combination with Rhodiola (RPE) distorts pharmacological effect of Rhodiola most probably due to changes of pharmacokinetic profile of rhodioloside and rosavin, and RPE cannot provide predictable therapeutic effect due to herb-herb interaction. Expand
Adaptogenic and central nervous system effects of single doses of 3% rosavin and 1% salidroside Rhodiola rosea L. extract in mice
TLDR
Evidence of the efficacy of R. rosea extracts after a single administration is provided, and many preclinical and clinical studies indicating the adaptogenic and stimulating effects of such R.rosea extracts are confirmed, as antidepressant‐like and anxiolytic‐like activities of R.'s rosea were shown for the first time. Expand
Rhodiola rosea L. extract reduces stress- and CRF-induced anorexia in rats
TLDR
It is strongly demonstrated that RHO is able selectively to attenuate stress-induced anorexia, providing functional evidence of claimed adaptogen and anti-stress properties of Rhodiola rosea L. Expand
The Swedish SF-36 Health Survey II. Evaluation of clinical validity: results from population studies of elderly and women in Gothenborg.
TLDR
The validity of the Swedish SF-36 Health Survey was examined, replicating techniques used in the U.S. study, and cultural differences and variation in study samples and selection criteria were suggested as possible explanatory factors for differences. Expand
Effects of alcohol aqueous extract from Rhodiola rosea L. roots on learning and memory.
TLDR
It has been found that Rhodiola extract in a single dose of 0.10 ml per rat essentially improves learning and retention after 24 hours and significant improvement of the long-term memory is also established in memory tests after 10-day treatment with the same dose of the extract. Expand
The Swedish SF-36 Health Survey--I. Evaluation of data quality, scaling assumptions, reliability and construct validity across general populations in Sweden.
TLDR
Empirical evidence is yielded supporting the feasibility of a non-English language reproduction of the SF-36 Health Survey in Sweden and tests of scaling assumptions including hypothesized item groupings were consistently favorable across subgroups, although lower rates were noted in the oldest age group.
