Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea), also known as golden root or artic root, has been a familiar remedy for centuries in the cold mountainous regions of Europe, Asia and Russia as a treatment for fatigue, stress and anxiety. More recently, the botanical has gained notoriety as an adaptogen, helping our bodies adapt to stress (handle stressful times better) and encourage our bodies to return to a place of homeostasis. The root contains the main active ingredients, rosavins and salidrosides.
