Rhodiolife® Rhodiola rosea
Identity & Quality You Can Trust
Rhodiolife is a standardized extract of Rhodiola rosea. Only RhodioLife’s unique “fingerprint” composition consistently provides the spectrum of compounds found in the root of the plant that are responsible for its biological activity – including rosavin, rosarin, rosin and salidroside. With Rhodiolife, not only is the percentage of the primary actives the same as the root, but so is the ratio of actives. This is not the case with many other Rhodiola rosea ingredients on the market.
PLT works with some of the most innovative, socially-committed companies in the world in bringing our solutions for health & wellness to market. Nektium from Canary Islands is a unique company with a fascinating story to tell your customers.

When it comes to Rhodiola rosea, identity – the fingerprint – matters to your customers!
For RhodioLife, responsible wildcrafting and sustainable sourcing from Russia is managed by a single entity and collection point, in the Altai Mountains, 450km southwest of Novosibirsk, on the border of Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and China. A Collection Management Plan (CMP), in accordance with WHO Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP), is used to ensure responsible harvesting of material. In the CMP, plants may only be harvested if they are 4 years or older, and each area can be harvested only once every five years. At least 5,000 new plants are planted every year. CMP also includes harvest limits and impact, government supervision, fair prices, worker safety and training.
First Certified Sports Grade on U.S. Market
In July 2019, PLT announced the availability of third-party BSCG Certified Drug Free® Rhodiolife. It was the first sports certified Rhodiola on the market. PLT manufacturing partner Nektium Pharma has established an on-going program with the Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG) to test and certify materials sold as Sports Grade. The testing program covers 496 drugs in total, including 272 drugs that are banned by a broad range of sports organizations. This sports certified grade is critical in sports nutrition products.
Third Party Verification
Anticipating the growing problem with Rhodiola supply, in early 2017, PLT Health Solutions and Nektium partnered with two respected ingredient identity and traceability firms – Botanical Liaisons, LLC and NaturPro Scientific, LLC to develop an ingredient identity verification program for Rhodiolife Rhodiola rosea L. Verification of Rhodiolife identity was based on a comprehensive set of criteria, including supplier verification, chain of custody review and identity testing using HPLC and DNA testing. The verification project was announced on 26 October 2017.
