Our North American Rhodiola Rosea is coming from one of the few cultivated varieties in the world, and it is in accordance with the GACP. The GACP ensures herbal raw material will be correctly identified, non-adulterated, has accurate representation regarding the quality of the product, and is sustainably harvested. The sustainability of harvesting this plant from sensitive habitats like China is increasingly becoming a concern. Therefore we are happy to bring you this Rhodiola from North America.
Rhodiola has been used in folk medicine for more than a thousand years with some of its first recorded uses being in Tibet and China, where this root was considered to be a plant which nourished chi (energy or vital force) and encouraged circulation. This adaptogenic herb has been used as folk medicine for centuries in many countries, most notably for boosting stamina and supporting physical and mental performance. Rhodiola rosea is the species of Rhodiola that people use for its value as an adaptogen by promoting healthy response to stress and adrenal functioning. The action of an adaptogen is to help restore overall balance and strengthen the functioning of the body as a whole without impacting the balance of an individual organ or body system. The herbal actions of Rhodiola are adaptogenic and astringent.
The dried root is used as a tea, tincture, or powdered and encapsulated.
To prepare as a tea: For the most therapeutic effect, we recommend making a decoction. Put 1 tbsp of roots in a small sauce pan. Cover the roots with 1 cup of water. Slowly heat to a simmer (be careful not to boil), cover for 10-30 minutes, then strain. You can initially put the roots in a tea strainer or filter, or put them straight into the pot and strain the roots afterwards.
