Rhodiola grows above the tree line on mountains throughout Asia. In Russia its referred to as Rhodiola Rosea. Shaman Shack's Rhodiola comes from the high mountains of Southwestern China bordering Tibet, and is referred to as Rhodiola Crenulata.
This is thought to be a particularly powerful species. The term 'adaptogen' was coined in 1948 by Russian scientist Dimitry Lazarov when studying Rhodiola's complex genetic structure. He had determined that the root can activate the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system when required, or according to needs of the circadian rhythms In other words. This herb can help instill energy, and also induce calming affect, depending on one's needs. Rhodiola is a blood oxygenator, helping oxygenated blood reach the brain. Thus it is a wonderful herb for those with high mental activity; occupations including writing, computers, arts, students, etc.

Shaman Shack Herbs offers “Tonic” herbs that have been used safely and effectively for centuries by ancient seers, shamans, and Taoist masters. These herbs are thought to have been used in the famous “Elixirs of Immortality” of ancient Chinese folklore. They specialize in whole herb formulas for true herb connoisseurs; a little extra work cooking tea is well worth the effort and also, you get to touch, taste and connect with the real herbs as you prepare the tea. They source the highest quality herbs for their products; herbs grown by old-school farmers of many generations, in wild lands of Northern Manchuria and other regions in China and Korea that have been kept safe from pollutants. A trip to these areas is like going back centuries into a simple past, where the herbs are collected from the wild and farmed by people who do things according to ensconced traditions. We hope that you can feel the difference.
