Eleuthero Root, Eleutherococcus senticosus
Thickets and thorns may break my bones, but the eleuthero root will never hurt me… A play on words, but indeed an imagery of what you might see if you stumble upon this shrub. It protects itself via spiky thorns that coat the branches - topped off with a grouping of inedible plump berries. While we grind the root and use it in powder form, it can also be consumed in a tonic cocktail. Eleuthero root is used for a few reasons in plant medicine, but most commonly to help combat fatigue. We want to source anything that helps us continue to meet all of the demands that our daily lives require. We place this subtle but powerful root in our THRIVE formula because of its energy-specific benefits.
