WHAT DOES IT DO?
Rosavin is almost unknown in the United States. In Siberia the location of Golden Root plants are a closely held secret among families who live there. The emperor of China used to organize expeditions to Siberia to bring back this highly valued plant. Rosavin is an adaptogenic herb along the lines of more famous cousins such as ginseng, ashwaganda, suma, etc. Rosavin, however, is more powerful and may be the best adaptogenic herb available.
Rosavin is an ingredient in Clearmind

No side effects were noted at normal doses. Doses above 800mg per day in some cases caused irritability, insomnia and unpleasant sensations. Rosavin is four times less toxic than Korean ginseng. Obviously, little is known of the effects of Rosavin in pregnant or nursing mothers and until then it should be avoided by them. Reports that it is an MAO inhibitor are greatly exaggerated. It has a minute and clinically insignificant activity in that regard and may be taken with any food or medication.
