I was the first in the USA to incorporate Rhodiola Rosea (Arctic Root) to bb regim, to enhance mental and physical performante. I was able to talk and get information on RR directly from Dr.Zakir Ramazanov, Dr.Zakir and I become very good friends. Dr.Zakir was a professor of plant biochemistry and molecular biology and he was a Senior Scientist at the Russian Academy of Science. RR has many beneficial healing properties, RR is not just another adaptogen. RR is safer than Korean ginseng even in high doses.
As far as BBing, RR can increase 50 to 80 percent liver glycogen, also RR was found that raised blood insulin levels and decreased the levels of glucagon(an insuline antagonist) it is much safer taking RR after training than insulin injections.
