Arctic Root | Golden Root | Roseroot ( Rhodiola rosea ) Herbal Extract - 50 ml



    Arctic root, also known as Rhodiola rosea or golden root, is a perennial plant native to the cold regions of Europe and Asia, including the Arctic. 

    It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine systems, particularly in Russia and Scandinavia, to enhance physical and mental performance, alleviate stress, and support overall well-being. 

    Arctic root tincture is a concentrated liquid extract made from the roots of the plant, which is believed to contain beneficial compounds, such as rosavin, salidroside, and other phenolic compounds.


    Some potential benefits, properties, and traditional uses of Arctic root tincture include:


    1. Adaptogenic properties: Arctic root is considered an adaptogen, which means it can help the body adapt to stress and maintain homeostasis. It is believed to support adrenal gland function and balance stress hormone levels, such as cortisol.
    2. Energy and stamina: Traditionally, Arctic root has been used to increase energy levels, combat fatigue, and enhance physical performance. It is thought to stimulate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the primary energy source for cells.
    3. Cognitive function: Arctic root has been used to improve cognitive performance, including memory, attention, and mental clarity. Some studies have suggested that it may have neuroprotective effects and support neurotransmitter function.
    4. Mood support: Some evidence suggests that Arctic root may help alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety by influencing serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain.
    5. Immune system support: Arctic root has been traditionally used to strengthen the immune system and improve resistance to infections.
    6. Antioxidant properties: The phenolic compounds in Arctic root are thought to have antioxidant properties, which may help protect cells from oxidative damage and support overall health.
    7. Cardiovascular health: Some research suggests that Arctic root may support cardiovascular health by improving blood flow and reducing inflammation.
    8. Altitude sickness. Improving oxygen uptake: Arctic root may help increase the efficiency of oxygen transport in the body, which can be beneficial at high altitudes where oxygen levels are lower.


    It is essential to note that while there is some scientific evidence supporting the benefits of Arctic root, more extensive research is needed to confirm these effects fully. 

    As with any herbal supplement, it's important to consult a healthcare professional before using Arctic root tincture, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medications.

    History and tradition


    • Quoted by Dioscorides in "De materia Medica"
    • Under the name of golden root, rhodiola is consumed by natives to prevent fatigue and "lack of desire to work" (Ssaratikov, 1968), to increase physical endurance (Russia, Scandinavia, Iceland) and to prevent altitude sickness
    • Used in infusion by the Yakuts (eastern Siberia) for its stimulating properties
    • The Inuit of Alaska and Canada consumed, often in large quantities, its stems and fleshy leaves as a green vegetable.

    • Anti-fatigue effect [8]
      • A single administration of a mixture of roots of Eleutherococcus senticosus , berries of Schisandra chinensis and roots of Rhodiola rosea increases mental performance and physical work capacity, it produces, within 30 min after administration, an effect stimulant that persists for at least 4 to 6 hours [9]
      • Increases mental performance, concentration ability, decreases salivary cortisol response in patients with stress-related fatigue syndrome [10]
    • Adaptogens activate the release of neuropeptide Y and HSP (Heat shock proteins), mainly the heat shock protein HSP70 [11] , [12] , [13]
    • Improvement of per os and subcutaneous physical capacities, improvement of physical performance ( salidron ) and muscular resistance [14]
    • Reduces oxidative stress induced by physical effort in rats [15] , increases muscle glycogen content [16] , activity on muscle strength and spontaneous locomotion in mice is close to that of ginseng and superior to that of echinacea
    • Improved mental abilities in men with 10 mg of salidroside
    • Improved memory, attention and learning, 50% improvement in testing errors on total alcohol extract
    • Stimulates hippocampal cell proliferation, and increases brain levels of 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) [17] , [18]
    • Increases serotonin and dopamine levels by lowering COMT (catechol-O-methyltransferase, which breaks down serotonin and dopamine) levels [19]
    • Major and multi-target antidepressant activity on various receptors and neurotransmitters, objectified by a literature review [20] , by inhibition of monoamine oxidase A (MAOI effect A), potential activity on senile dementia by effect on monoamine oxidase B (MAOI effect B) [21]
    • Anxiolytic [22]
    • Neuroprotective ( rosin , salidroside ) [23] , Rhodiola rosea reduces intracerebral streptozotocin-induced cognitive impairment in rats [24]
