A Quick KeaLad Commentary on The Rhodiola Revolution
The Rhodiola Revolution is actually a book we got in on recommendation from one of the good folk in the VitaKea community... and after having read it, I couldn't be more pleased.
The Rhodiola Revolution provides really interesting insight into the many applications of Rhodiola Rosea for supplementation. Given both authors work in a psychologist practice, they provide a great number of anecdotal case reports from their very own patients. They also provide a balanced viewpoint as well as the necessary caution you might expect from experienced medical practitioners.
Worth noting, the beginning few chapters can feel a little like the authors are promoting Rhodiola rosea as a cure all for all ailments. I encourage to continue on with an open mind, as the book progresses the picture does become much more balanced befitting to my commentary above. Also worth noting is the dietary recommendations which have dated notably, as is to be expected given The Rhodiola Revolution was published in 2004.
Each chapter is broken down into numerous small sections that make for light bedtime reading, the tone casual and easy to read. For anyone looking to learn more about Rhodiola Rosea, I enthusiastically advocate for this book. Potential side effects may include full blown Rhodiola obsession...
