The arctic conditions, harsh winters and nightless nights of summer, make Lapland a rather unique growing environment. 24 hours of daylight in summer allows the vegetation to grow non-stop, which is quite a stress. Think of yourself working day in day out without rest!
It is, however, a positive stress loading the herbs and berries of Lapland with powerful substances, which cannot be artificially copied.
Roseroot and Angelica archangelica, herbs native to Lapland, are prime examples of the power of arctic conditions. Both herbs are grown outside the arctic area, in Europe and as far as in China. The unnatural environment outside of their natural habitat makes them much weaker. It’s the same thing as you’d try to grow mango in Lapland.
Roseroot – ginseng of the North
Despite its beautiful name, roseroot (Rhodiola Rosea) is a strong herb, which has been used for over a thousand years. It was an indispensable source of power to Vikings who conquered the seas. The Russians have researched the health benefits of roseroot ever since 1960´s. No wonder the cosmonauts boost their physical and mental endurance on demanding space journeys with this powerful herb, also known as ginseng of the North
Roseroot is a so-called adaptogen helping the body to adapt to both physical and mental stress. It balances your body meaning that it replenishes the worn out and calms down the wired. Its effect depends on the situation of each individual.
Roseroot has an impressive list of possible benefits. It strengthens the body and increases energy, vitality, mental capacity and sexual stamina. For sportsmen the roseroot is an excellent supplement helping the mind to stay focused and the muscles to adapt to and recover from the physical stress.
Angelica – herb of angels
Angelica (Angelica archangelica) is real defender of the body.
The native people to Finnish Lapland, the Sami, considered Angelica a holy herb, which prevented from the disease. The herb rich in vitamin C and iron was welcome after the long and harsh winters. It used to be of great help in the fight against scurvy, plague and Spanish flu.
Angelica is very antibacterial killing bacteria, or at least preventing their growth. It’s an excellent prevention of both respiratory symptoms and digestive problems.
