Rhodiola, scientifically known as Rhodiola rosea, is a hardy perennial plant that falls under the Crassulaceae family. Its natural habitat includes the high-altitude regions of Europe, Asia, and North America, with a notable presence in Arctic and mountainous areas. With a rich history in traditional medicine, especially in Russia and Scandinavia, rhodiola has earned its reputation as an adaptogen.

In recent times, research has shed light on the potential of rhodiola extract in addressing issues such as fatigue, sleep disorders, depression, and viral respiratory illnesses. However, its surging popularity has given rise to an unfortunate consequence—the excessive harvesting of this remarkable species.

Recognizing the need to protect this vital plant and its ecosystem, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) has taken action by listing rhodiola as a protected flora species.

At Vitazan Professional, our commitment to upholding the highest standards and protocols in the manufacturing and distribution of natural health products (NHPs) is unwavering. While our rhodiola products have always been sustainably harvested, we are taking a proactive stance. As part of our ongoing efforts to promote sustainability, we will either discontinue or reformulate any product containing this precious root. We will no longer be using rhodiola in any of our future productions.
