Rooting for Rhodiola


Rhodiola (root) Extract: The OG adaptogen and an herbal wake up call, Rhodiola sharpens focus and lifts us from a state of sluggishness. This traditional Taoist herb improves the brain’s ability to absorb oxygen, leading to mental clarity, creativity and stamina. Oxygenate, stimulate, and feed your brain with this vibrant tonic.

The discovery of Rhodiola’s complex genetic structure and ability to adjust to the needs of the body’s circadian rhythms led Russian scientist Nicoli Lazarev to create the term “adaptogen” in 1948. Sometimes called “arctic root”, Rhodiola has a long history of medicinal use, being mentioned by the Greek physician Dioscorides as far back as the first century AD. Rhodiola was even taken by Russian cosmonauts in preparation for their journey to space.

Rhodiola is your brain’s wake-up call in periods of sluggishness and when your focus is missing. For the ultimate energizing and clarifying drink in the morning, mix ¼ to ½ a teaspoon of this with Sun Potion’s Chlorella in a tall glass of room temperature water.
