A course injection of Rhodiola rosea extract for eight days was reported to increase the resistance of experimental animals to adrenalin or CaCl2 induced arrhythmias. Preliminary injection of naloxone in a dose of 0.5 mg/kg eliminated the antiarrhythmic effect of Rhodiola. Indometacin had no effect on the antiarrhythmic action of Rhodiola. The antiarrhythmic effect of Rhodiola course injections was assumed to be associated with the induction of opioid peptide biosynthesis.
