Rhodiola May Help Depression

A study published in March 2015 in Phytomedicine (Rhodiola rosea versus sertraline for major depressive disorder: A randomized placebo-controlled trial.Phytomedicine. 2015 Mar 15;22(3):394-9. doi: 10.1016/j.phymed.2015.01.010. Epub 2015 Feb 23.) showed that the adaptogenic herb Rhodiola was beneficial compared to a placebo.  It was not as beneficial as sertraline, but it had significantly less side effects.  The nice thing about adaptogenic herbs is that they help the body deal better with stress, and support the body's own regulatory mechanisms through the HPA axis (hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal).
