Rhododendron Caucasicum Extract

Found in the product: Inflammatory Support

Since the early 1950’s, the USSR Academy of Science and Ministry of Health studied several herbs for their ability to improve health, mental and physical performance, and to fight certain diseases.

Some extracts of Rhodiola Rosea and Rhododendron Caucasicum were so successful in keeping the Russian athletes and cosmonauts dominant that the Soviet government kept any information about them a guarded secret. It is only recently the research has been shared.

Georgia of the former USSR has long been known for human longevity.  Many of its residents live active and healthy lives well past 100 years of age. This has been attributed to a number of factors. They are the particular qualities in their drinking water, consumption of traditional yogurt, red wine and teas made of Rhodiola rosea, also known as “Artic Root” or “Golden Root”.

They also brew Rhododendron caucasicum, also called Rhododendron Alpine tea. Extracts of these two herbs, known as Rosavin and Rhodenol, are the most popular adaptogens and longevity enhancers in Georgia and in Russia. These high-altitude herbs are among the most fascinating plant species in the world.
