Low on Energy? Try Arctic Root

Every now and then you spend $1.00 on something and get back way out of proportion to what you've spent.

Not long ago I was browsing in a local store among their supplement section and came upon a clearance rack.  Among the discounted items offered was a bottle of Rhodiola rosea capsules, otherwise known as Arctic root.  I already knew much about this herb but had never really felt the need to give it a try.  But as it was reduced in price to a mere $1.00, I figured there would be little loss in evaluating this supplement, just to see if I noted anything different upon taking it myself.  It turns out this was a dollar exceptionally well spent.

I've certainly never been a low-energy individual, but when you've a lot of work to do in a day, especially purely physical work in sometimes challenging temperatures, there's seldom any harm in giving yourself an energy boost, especially if it's from an entirely natural source and possibly confers other benefits besides.  Over the last several months I've done a whole lot of outdoor work in the form of property maintenance, spanning a considerable amount of territory and involving multiple landscaping tasks.  Upon beginning to take the Arctic root I quickly noticed that indeed, I never seemed to run out of energy and always had enough to undertake the day's agenda -- and then some, with more than enough to spare for my own exercising and whatnot on top of it all.  I've heard it remarked innumerable times by some of my older customers of the past that they had a lot to do but then sighed, declaring, "I just don't have the energy."  Arctic root would seem an ideal supplement for such fatigued people, and may even offer a lot more than just increasing one's energetic output.

As the common name implies, Arctic root is native to the cooler northernmost zones of Europe and Asia, with related species found in western North America.  Arctic root could be found in European documentation of several centuries ago as a prescription for a very wide range of ailments.  Boasting approximately 140 chemical components, its usefulness perhaps comes as little surprise; within its extensive composition are a great many unique phenolic substances; Arctic root's numerous and well-studied benefits are largely attributed to certain unique combinations thereof.  The herb is very appropriately classified as an adaptogen, that is, it assists a person in handling all kinds of stresses -- physical, psychological and even environmental in origin.  And it does this with a finesse and efficiency rivaling (or exceeding) that of far more well-known adaptogens like the various ginsengs.

It's almost hard to believe a single herb can offer as many benefits as Arctic root.  After a bit of research into the conditions it's indicated to remedy, you could quite literally say, "You name it, it helps with it."  I had anecdotally heard some years back that taking it makes you feel, "like you can do anything with your day," and I can vouch for the way it does seem to confer a strong sense of available physical energy.  But what may be equally important than this, if not more, is that some of its active components may allow it to assist with all manner of disorders of the central nervous system, and, likewise, everything from basic mental sluggishness to depression, ADHD and dementia.  Furthermore, Arctic root has been shown to demonstrate significant anti-cancer potential.  And these are just the things which are presently known about the herb, with doubtless more awaiting discovery.

Wow, what an amazing powerhouse Rhodiola rosea is, an herb which truly deserves a high place even among other turbo-charged adaptogens.  If people really knew how valuable it could be for their overall health, both physical and mental, it would fly off the shelves and never even end up selling for a mere $1.00 in a clearance rack...
