About a year ago I blogged about taking rhodiola root extract to help with muscle relaxation.
It actually does much more for me. It's about time I blogged that too.
Between it and the fact that I have much less fascia tension than a year ago I now fall asleep fairly quickly. For most of my life it took forty to sixty minutes to fall asleep. What a huge benefit!
Also, from my high school years until a year ago I had a subconscious nervous habit of picking at my upper lip. This habit has bothered me (and really annoyed one of my best friends) but I could not stop it since I usually did not notice starting to do it. Yet the rhodiola root makes that habit go away. A couple of times during the past year I have wondered if the rhodiola root might have had some permanent effect and stopped taking it, and with a day or two I catch myself picking at my lip again. Strange! I must have some slight chemical imbalance or lack that the rhodiola root fixes.
