Here you have the Ginseng of the North!
Rose root (golden root) has been known since the Viking times as a great source of power. It is a plant of wild arctic regions, the reason the plant is also called ‘Arctic root’. Rose root grows in cold climate along streams and rivers, as well as on rocky slopes and marshes in northern Finland, Lapland.
Once upon a time, the Vikings considered rose root a powerful plant that offered a key to a long life. Rose root is indeed the only herb in Europe that is confirmed to have resistance-enhancing effect. Like ginseng it is an adaptogen that is found to strengthen the body and help it survive in extreme conditions. Even astronauts in space have sought to adapt to demanding and stressful conditions with this herb. Rose root has also been used in sports to improve mental and physical performance and to strengthen the body’s defense system during physical exercise.
Rose root belongs to plants of the genus Rhodiola containing ingredients such as flavolignans, flavonoids, phenylpropanoides, coumarins, sterols, monoterpenes, and lactones. Triandrin is the most effective of its active ingredients, but 140 different ingredients in all have been isolated from this Arctic herb.
You can enjoy the strong herb of pure Nordic nature by brewing tea.
