Rhodiola rosea
Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea)

Several years ago I’ve grown many rhodiola plants from seeds. I was so happy when all these little ‘creatures’ showed up. In spring you can easily multiply them by making some cuttings. Rhodiola is another adaptogen. It strengthens the nervous system, fights depression, enhances immunity, elevates the capacity for exercise, enhances memory, aids weight reduction, increases sexual function and improves energy levels. The Eskimos and the Laplanders are also eating the leaves. I’m juicing the leaves. For more information on rhodiola see the article down below.
