Botanical Name: Rhodiola rosea
Country of Origin: China
Production: Rhodiola is a perennial flowering plant with yellowish green flowers which grows in cold conditions and has a fragrant, rose-like scent, which gives it the specific name “rosea”. Popularity of this herbal supplement has led to overharvesting in the wild in recent years and thus widespread efforts have been put into setting up commercial cultivation and to protect this species from extinction by classifying it as endangered.
Qualities: Rhodiola has been used historically in Russia and Scandinavia to cope with the cold climate. It is considered to be an adaptogen, helping the body to generate a healthy response to both physical and environmental stresses.
Common Use: The dried root is made into a tea, tincture, infusion, or encapsulated.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
