Historical research tells us that it was commonly used among vikings in their long trips to help them with energy and stamina. Also the old Russian tzhar Ivan IV used it to boost his sexual performance.
When the scientists of the communist Soviet Union figured out the benefits of this herb, they vowed to never let the secret of Rhodiola Rosea leave the borders of Russia, instead they introduced Rhodiola Rosea to their nations Olympic team and Cosmonauts, which were known to use this herb a lot.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the secret of Rhodiola Rosea finally reached the rest of the world.
