The woody root is the part of Eleuthero that is harvested, The Grove Eleuthero is Organically grown and harvested in China away from harmful pollution, it is harvested when mature to ensure its potency, then dried and ground to the fine premium powder we provide you here.
Used for 1000's of years by Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbalist, it is used as a strong Qi tonic (chi, life energy, vital energy) and so very important in the energy of the body, as well as used to support cognitive and physical performance, endurance, fatigue prevention, oxygenation and recovery, suggesting that those who are athletic or physically active should use it. But they also note it to aid memory, immune function and alertness. With Traditional Russian Medicine suggesting it should be used to nourish the Immune System.
Science has substantiated some of these traditional health claims attributing their actions, primarily, to the Polysaccharide and Eleutheroside compounds that are in abundance in this root. These have been studied extensively and shown to potentially be effective for various health conditions including; cognitive and physical performance, with the anti-inflammatory effects potentially supporting organ function and skeletal health (arthritis and osteoporosis). Interestingly when combined with another of our products Schisandra it has been shown to potentially further aid those suffering from mild fatigue.
Although some people may feel the effects immediately, Eleuthero is another natural product that tends to be most beneficial when consumed over a longer period, where its accumulative effects become more powerful.

THE MAGIC OF FOOD SCIENCE*
In addition, it has been studied and suggested that Eleuthero — again due to its adaptogenic properties — potentially exhibits the ability to increase mental and physical performance, in some instances, this can take effect within as little as 30 minutes of consumption and lasts for around 4-6hours, and even better, unlike other stimulants, Eleuthero doesn't have addictive qualities, doesn't have a "come down", nor does it effect sleep.

A SHORT HISTORY
Eleuthero has been traditionally used to improve vitality, immunity and relieve stress. It is commonly used an and anti-fatigue tonic herb—a favourite among herbalists and especially popular in Russia as an adaptogenic herbal supplement. Feel free to send us your findings if you come across any, we would love to hear from you.
The soviets began to use Eleuthero to boost various areas of their progression, from use for worker concentration and productivity to strengthen their army. A former Soviet sports nutrition researcher and coach, Dr. Ben Tabachnik, attributes Eleuthero to the Soviet Olympic team domination of the 1988 Olympics, and it was also into space by Soviet astronauts, with them raising a glass of Eleuthero extract in 1967, toasting their orbit acheivement!
Some of the Soviet research into Eleuthero was filed "classified", as the Soviet scientists wanted to closely guard their newly found secret which was improving their performance in many areas.

LIFE OF ELEUTHERO (SIBERIAN GINSENG)
Eleutherococcus senticosus is native to the far east of Siberia, and some related species growing throughout Northern China, Korea, and Japan. It is a deciduous thorny, creeping, shrub that grows slowly ending up around 2m in height and reaching maturity after around 7 years. It prefers shelter from the wind, but a good amount of sun (either partly shaded or full sun). Usually growing in well drained loamy, humus-rich soil, at the foot of the forest, sometimes creating large impenetrable thickets, and can tolerate temperatures of around -15°c if they are sheltered from cold winds.
Eleuthero is imported as due to the cycle and temperature required for optimum growing conditions. Panax Ginseng is currently being grown in Tasmania, but in small amounts due to cost, rotation and yield.
The Eleuthero root is organically grown in China. The roots are harvested, selected and cleaned. They are then washed and organically disinfected.
The roots are sliced, dried and crushed. The powder is then ground a second time to finer powder, sifted and bulk packed ready for transport.
The product is then put on a ship and sails to Australia and arrives at The Grove HQ approximately 6 weeks later.
Once it arrives at The Grove HQ we carry out quality control checks and repackage it ready for you.
