The underground part of Rhodiola rosea was worth its weight in gold in eastern countries. To obtain golden root the Chinese emperors sent expeditions to Altai, where its main reserves are located to this day. Rhodiola was prescribed to recuperate after serious illness and as a tonic in case of anemia and impotence.
Apart from the high cost of the root, its color in some places resembles gilding, therefore, the name "golden root" has become popular among the people. It is widely believed in Altai that one who finds the golden root will be a long-liver.
Unlike caffeine and other energetic, Rhodiola rosea has a mild tonic effect without disturbing the control over the feeling of fatigue. No depletion of energy resources is observed when you use this product. At the same time, Rhodiola significantly invigorates, so we recommend taking root apozem in the morning. The active substances, such as salidroside, rosavin, rosarin, organic acids (oxalic, citric, malic, gallic, succinic), flavanoids are responsible for the effectiveness of Rhodiola.
