Tibetan Rhodiola sacra is the root of a remarkable snowline herb that has been used for centuries in Himalayan culture to strengthen mental energy, increase depth of thought, improve mental endurance and to increase wisdom. This herb increases oxygen flow to the brain. Standardized Ginkgo biloba (24% ginkgo flavoneglycosides, 6% lactone terpenes) has been demonstrated to improve blood flow in the brain and to deliver increased oxygen to brain cells, thus improving cognition. Each of the other three herbs in this formula have been used for centuries to improve concentration, focus, memory and mental energy.

Tibetan Rhodiola sacra is an exciting herb, only recently available outside of Tibet. It is a rare herbal substance because it grows in one of the harshest environments in the world. In the Orient, Rhodiola sacra is called “Plateau Ginseng,” and as the species name “sacra” indicates, the Tibetans consider Rhodiola sacra to be a sacred herb. It has been used by the Tibetan people as a powerful adaptogenic vitalizer and as a substantial medicinal agent since the beginning of Tibetan civilization. Rhodiola sacra has also been prized by the Chinese and was very positively reviewed in the very first Chinese herbal classic over two thousand years ago. It was regarded by the author of that classic text, Shen Nong, as a life-prolonging, wisdom enhancing “superior herb.” However, the rarity of Rhodiola sacra has prevented it from becoming a well-known commodity outside of Asia.

This is considered to be one of the harshest environments on earth, with dry air, insufficient oxygen, strong ultraviolet radiation and a huge day-and-night temperature variance (often as much 60 degrees Centigrade or more).
