It is a relatively rare substance that grows in one of the harshest environments in the world. In the Orient it is called Plateau Ginseng,. It has been used by the Tibetan people as a powerful adaptogenic vitalizer and as a substantial medicinal agent since the beginning of Tibetan civilization. Rhodiola has also been prized by the Chinese and was very positively reviewed in the first Chinese herbal classic over two thousand years ago. It was regarded as a life-prolonging, wisdom enhancing superior herb. This incredible herb has been used to enhance inner spiritual power, concentration and physical endurance.
Evidence has shown that Tibetan Rhodiola is in many ways more powerful than Ginseng. It is a superb herb for people who work very hard, either physically or mentally. Tibetan Rhodiola has been shown to improve endurance and mental capacity, including memory enhancement. It has been shown to be a superb tonic and energizer for those into physical fitness, and a superior tonic for those stuck behind a desk or at a computer terminal for long periods of time. Consumption of a small amount of Rhodiola extract significantly improves a person’s capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen.
Tibetan Rhodiola is especially beneficial to those who live under stressful conditions. It has been proven that Tibetan Rhodiola reduces the body’s stress reactions, and thus relieves mental stress as well. People stay focused and suffer far less from fatigue even under severe stress. It is the ideal herbal supplement for the modern world.
Tibetan Rhodiola has been found to be extremely beneficial to the cardiovascular system, and has been found to prevent heart disease, the number one cause of death in the United States. It is also a powerful immune modulator, building the immune system into a well tuned fighting machine.
Tibetan Rhodiola also is being used as a powerful and safe antidepressant. It is believed to be more powerful than St. Johns Wort, currently the world’s number one selling natural antidepressant substance.
And Tibetan Rhodiola is a very safe, non-toxic herbal nutrient. It may be consumed daily as a tonic and health maintaining supplement.
Rhodiola’s root and stem are mainly used for medicine or as a precious tonic. However, the whole plant body can also be used for the same purpose.

Rhodiola crenulata also contains 18 amino acids which are needed by the human body, 7 of which cannot be produced by the body. Such a spectrum of bio-nutrients is seldom seen in any other natural plant.
Salidroside, Tyrosot and Sitosterol mainly enhance the resistance of the human body for adapting to stressful conditions and adjust physiological functions for restoration. Rhodiola has double-direction activity on the nervous and endocrine systems and possesses many kinds of physiologically active components which studies have shown have anticarcinogenic, antiviral,and antimicrobial activity.
