Depression, pain and anxiety are the most normal human emotions, but they are becoming more and more pathological in the 21st century.
In the past, depression only belonged to a few elites and literary and artistic talents. Now it has become "popular". According to statistics, there are more than 350 million people suffering from depression in the world. China is one of the countries with a serious burden of depression in the world. According to the report of the World Health Organization, more than 54 million people in China suffer from depression, accounting for 4.2% of the total population.
The pathogenic factors of depression are not only various, but also complex. They are often induced by many factors such as physiology, psychology and environment, and are easy to occur repeatedly. At present, there are three main treatments for depression: drug therapy, psychotherapy and physical therapy. Among them, antidepressant drugs are more common, but most drugs have side effects and will produce certain drug resistance, which will have an adverse impact on human health. Therefore, compared with traditional antidepressants, most patients prefer natural, safe and less side effects of plant extracts or herbs to alleviate depression.

Modern research shows that Rhodiola has the effects of anti-oxidation, increasing exercise endurance, improving immunity, improving sleep and whitening. In addition, animal experiments have shown that salidroside extracted from Rhodiola can increase the transmission speed of serotonin precursor tryptophan and 5-HTP in the brain, or improve depression and depression.
