Roseroot – Boost Your Performance

Despite its beautiful name, roseroot (Rhodiola Rosea), also known as the “ginseng of the North,” is a strong herb that has been used for over a thousand years. It was an indispensable source of power for Vikings who conquered the seas and has been used by cosmonauts to boost their physical and mental performance on demanding space journeys. The Russians have researched the health benefits of roseroot since the 1960s.

Roseroot’s Benefits

Rosavins and salidrosides are the effective compounds that make roseroot such an effective herb. The further north the herb grows, the more potent these compounds are.

Roseroot contributes to normal blood circulation, which is associated with brain performance and reactivity, and contributes to optimal mental and cognitive activity. It gives endurance for sports performances and acts as an adaptogen that protects during physical stress. It also helps maintain normal function of the circulatory system, providing cells with oxygen and nutrients.

Dosage of Roseroot

Even though roseroot is a strong herb, it is safe to use. However, there is no reason to take more than recommended. The maximum dosage for adults is 2 herbal shots or 2 teaspoons of bottled extract. In our honey products, the roseroot concentration is lower, thus there is no such limit to their use.

Children over three years of age can take roseroot. For those aged 3-7 years, half a dosage is enough. Honey products are not recommended for children under 1 year of age.
