RHODIOLA


ENDURANCE BOOSTER


Traditional folk medicine used Rhodiola to increase work productivity, physical endurance, longevity and to treat fatigue and nervous system disorders. It has widely been used by Russian athletes and cosmonauts to increase energy and it was popular with the ancient Vikings who took rhodiola to enhance mental and physical endurance. 



HEART PROTECTOR


Rhodiola is cardioprotective, normalising the heart rate immediately after intense exercise. It also protects the cardiovascular system from stress and arrhythmias. Both human and animal experiments have demonstrated that rhodiola extract enhances immunity and it has been shown to prolong animal life. 


LUNG NOURISHER


Rhodiola is used as a lung nourisher, to treat respiratory problems and pneumonia and to lower fevers and improve blood circulation in Tibet as well as being regularly consumed in Siberia to prevent illness, particularly during the cold and wet winter.  



A KINGLY ADAPTOGEN 


Rhodiola also known as ‘golden root’ or ‘roseroot’ and has been used for centuries in Siberia, Scandinavia, Germany and Tibet. 


Rhodiola has been widely used by Russian athletes and has been an official, accepted medicine in the Soviet pharmacopoeia since 1969. Rhodiola has demonstrated health benefits as an antiviral, adaptogen, cardioprotective, immune system stimulant and neuroprotective. One of its greatest attributes is its ability to enhance mental and physical performance.
