AKA: Golden Root
Clinical studies have shown that Rhodiola increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—the body's main source of energy. It is packed full of active compounds like rosovin that decrease cortisol and reduce stress. Rhodiola has a long history of use in TCM for its stress-reducing, stamina-enhancing powers.
Fun Fact: The Vikings also used rhodiola to enhance physical strength, while the Sherpa people used it to climb at high altitudes, even to conquer Mt. Everest.
