Our Rhodiola Rosea cultivation takes place across the border in Kazakhstan where the plants grow in a dry and cold climate with high temperature differences between day and night and high ultraviolet intensity. The frost-free period is short, leaving a small window for harvest. In total 300 000 sq km are explored and annual harvest average 300 tons of dry roots. The extraction of the plants leads to an average 100 tons per year.
At BKD, we source our plants from Kazakhstan; at the border of China and Russia. We inspect and confirm that we are getting the right species via a full range of testing. Our Rhodiola rosea is standardized for Rosavins and Salidroside, Rosavins and salidrosides are largely responsible for Rhodiola Rosea’s antistress efficacy in both acute and chronic stress models in rodents
