Rhodiola rosea is a remarkable herb with a legendary history dating back thousands of years. In 77 A.D., the Greek physician Dioscorides documented the medical applications of the plant, which he then called "rodia riza," in his classic medical text ‘De Materia Medica.’ The Vikings depended on the herb to enhance their physical strength and endurance, while Chinese emperors sent expeditions to Siberia to bring back "the golden root" for medicinal preparations. The people of central Asia considered a tea brewed from rhodiola rosea to be the most effective treatment for cold and flu. Mongolian physicians prescribed it for tuberculosis and cancer. It is reported to strengthen the nervous system, fight depression, enhance immunity, elevate the capacity for exercise, enhance memory, assist in weight reduction, increase sexual function and improve energy levels. It has long been known as a potent ‘adaptogen.’ Adaptogens are substances that increase the body's overall resistance and help to normalize bodily functions.
