, 1 min reading time

The fragrant Rhodiola rosea root, also known as roseroot, has been used throughout history in Iceland, Sweden, France, Russia, and Greece. Rhodiola rosea started to appear in scientific literature as early as 1725. Popular with the Vikings to enhance mental and physical endurance, this revered adaptogen was included in the first Swedish Pharmacopeia. In addition, the respected Greek physician Dioscorides discussed the virtues of Rhodiola rosea root in his De Materia Medica discourse in the first century A.D. Linnaeus also wrote about Rhodiola medicinal properties in 1749 in his Materia Medica.
