Golden root benefits
Originally coming from the mountains and cool climates, golden root aka rhodiola rosea is an effective mood enhancer and depressant. Its effect is related to the improvement of serotonin and dopamine levels in the body. Studies in humans have shown that it improves physical and mental performance and can reduce fatigue. Gold root prevents stress-related changes in appetite, physical activity, weight, and reproduction cycle.
Golden root has many benefits. The root extract enhances mental ability, especially concentration, in both healthy individuals and those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. It has been used in Asia and Scandinavia for centuries, while in other parts of the world its popularity is still gaining momentum.
Make tincture of golden root
In folk medicine, the root of a plant with more than two stems is used as a medicine. They are collected in August-September. For the second time, roots can be harvested from the same place in 10-15 years. Make extract of the root by pouring 100 g of vodka onto 10 g of golden root rootstock, let it stand for 10 days, shake it frequently and then take half of a teaspoon daily.
