    Rhodiola rosea (arctic root, rose root, golden root and royal root) is the most effective and versatile representative of an elite class of medicinal plants called adaptogens. They got this name due to their influence on our ability to withstand many stress factors: physical, psychological, toxic, chemical, infectious, tumor (cancer), aging factors, etc.

    Rhodiola rosea is a wild plant growing at high altitudes from 2400-300 m above sea level in the mountains of Siberia, Georgia and Scandinavia. From time immemorial, people living at these heights have collected the roots of this plant and used them to survive in harsh conditions. The place where these plants grew was kept secret. The roots of Rhodiola rosea were exchanged for food and other goods. Chinese emperors sent expeditions to find the precious roots that were known as the "golden root" or "royal root". Extracts from this plant have been used to treat infections and increase energy and physical strength, brain function, fertility and sexual function.

    The surge of energy is one of the first effects noted by those who started taking Rhodiola rosea. Unlike synthetic medicinal stimulants, Rhodiola rosea increases energy levels gradually. The effect lasts for about 8 hours, then the energy level gradually decreases. As a consequence, rhodiola does not cause addiction or withdrawal symptoms.

    In general, Rhodiola rosea enhances the ability of cells to produce high-energy molecules. As a result, many types of cells - muscle cells, neurons, etc. - receive enough energy to continue to function normally for a longer time. Moreover, the cells have enough energy to support the mechanisms of cellular repair. In addition, Rhodiola rosea protects cells from oxidative damage, toxins, hypothermia or overheating, infections, low oxygen levels and other forms of stress.

    Rhodiola rosea may help reduce fatigue caused by a variety of different causes, including fatigue due to stress, overwork, illness, sleep deficit, and aging.
