Rhodiola is showing itself to be an effective herb that works as an adaptogen (see box) to help us manage stress. It is native to mountainous regions in Asia and Europe and has a centuries-old reputation as a healing herb that combats fatigue and restores energy. Even the Vikings used it. In Siberia, bouquets of rhodiola roots are still given to newly-weds to enhance fertility and ensure the birth of healthy children. Most of the research has been done in the former Soviet Union and Scandinavian countries. Although there are over 200 species, studies show that Rhodiola rosea is the most clinically effective.
