Fermodiola™ is fermented rhodiola, a herb that grows in cold parts of Europe and has traditionally been used as a remedy for fatigue and as an adaptogen.
The rhodiola root is used for medicinal purposes.
This adaptogen has been activated by lactic acid fermentation.
The great benefit of fermenting rhodiola
Better absorption of secondary plant metabolites
Fermented rhodiola contains much more tyrosol than natural rhodiola. Tyrosol is an aglycone of salidroside. Salidroside is one of the major phenolic glycosides in rhodiola and is used as one of the criteria for evaluating the quality of rhodiola.
The flavonoids are broken down into smaller active antioxidant molecules by fermentation
The SOD-like substances are not destroyed in the digestive tract as is the case with oral ingestion of superoxide dismutase (SOD). These antioxidants have a similar function to SOD.
Fermodiola™ contains paraprobiotics with similar health-promoting benefits as live probiotic strains.
Much lower daily dose needed
Thanks to the high bioavailability and rapid absorption in the small intestine, a daily dose of 150 mg is enough under normal circumstances.
The big benefit of Fermodiola™ is that the natural matrix of the plant is preserved. Together with the high bioavailability of the active substances, this ingredient is much safer than those that only offer the pure, isolated form of tyrosol.
The rhodiola plant contains many other intelligent substances that are highly beneficial to the body, also in their best absorbable form through fermentation. It is the synergy of secondary plant metabolites in their best absorbable form that plays an important role for health.
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is applied to identify and quantify tyrosol changes before and after fermentation. Fermodiola™, fermented rhodiola, contains 7.2 times more tyrosol than non-fermented rhodiola.
Tyrosol is an aglycone of salidroside. Salidroside is one of the major phenolic glycosides in rhodiola and is used as one of the criteria for evaluating the quality of rhodiola.
Deglycosylation is an important step in the absorption and metabolism of dietary phenolic glycosides.
