Floral scented rhodiola root has been utilized for thousands of years in Europe and Asia. It grows throughout North America, in Canada and the United States, as well. This herb has been used as folk medicine in Russia, Scandanavia, and in many other countries. Rhodiola was employed in Russia to boost the stamina of Olympic athletes and was even taken by cosmonauts to support physical and mental performance. Scientific literature from Sweden, Norway, France, Germany, the Soviet Union, and Iceland has supported the efficacy of rhodiola as far back as 1725 and continues to do so. Uses date to the time of the Greek physician, Discorides, who documented its benefits in 77 CE in his medical text De Materia Medica.
Rhodiola has traditionally been used for many purposes including in the Himalayas for occasional altitude related discomforts. It is commonly appreciated for its adaptogenic abilities. Rhodiola root promotes a healthy response to stress and supports adrenal functioning.*
Our rhodiola extract is crafted in small batches using fresh, organic roots and organic alcohol at our facility in Eugene, Oregon. Rhodiola tincture is somewhat bittersweet and has a distinct astringency that lingers in the mouth. It pairs well with other adaptogenic herbs including ashwagandha, eleuthero, or holy basil. Rhodiola extract is a nice addition to 21st century tea or blossoms of health tea for a beneficial enhancement.
