New Jersey-based Jiaherb, a manufacturer and supplier of natural and botanical ingredients, has adopted the plant Rhodiola rosea through the Adopt-an-Herb program by the American Botanical Council (ABC).

Through its adoption, Jiaherb​ is helping ABC“expand its nonprofit educational mission and keep its unique HerbMedPro database updated with the latest scientific and clinical research on this traditionally used medicinal plant,” ​according to a press release by the council.

HerbMedPro is a comprehensive, interactive online database that provides access to important scientific and clinical research data on the uses and health effects of approximately 250 medicinal and aromatic plants.

“By supporting the Adopt-an-Herb Program, we will be working together with ABC to do further research on the benefits of this increasingly popular botanical,”​ said Scott Chen, president of Jiaherb. “This will help to educate the global herb community, including the botanical industry, about rhodiola, rhodiola’s traditional use, current applications, and sustainable development.”

“ABC is deeply grateful to Jiaherb for its generous support of ABC’s nonprofit educational mission via their adoption of Rhodiola rosea,” ​said Mark Blumenthal, founder and executive director of ABC. “There is increasing research and market interest in this adaptogenic root and its extracts, and ABC will be able to stay current with the scientific and clinical research on this important herb due to Jiaherb’s adoption.”

Chen noted that sustainability concerns for Rhodiola rosea have made research and conservation efforts particularly important. “In recent years, the sources of rhodiola have started to slowly diminish,” ​he said.

“It is time for us to shift our attention to the sustainability of this naturally grown herb and its scientific use and benefits. We need to develop a sustainable future for rhodiola that will protect it from overharvesting, and to implement a solution that will protect the species from extinction.”
