Medicinal Rhodiola species, including Rhodiola rosea L. and Rhodiola crenulata (Hongjingtian红景天) have been widely used as herbal medicines with numerous claims for their therapeutic effects. These products are registered by a number as pharmaceuticals and throughout China Rhodiola is also taken for wellness and is registered as a self-medicated wellness product for ‘blood-boosting and heart-strengthening.’ However other species exist that may be found as adulterants in the value chain, these include Rhodiola quadrifida (Pall.) Fisch. & C.A.Mey, Rhodiola sachalinensis Borris, and Rhodiola fastigiata (Hook. f. & Thomson) S.H. Fu.
Faced with resource depletion, environment destruction and higher demand, R. rosea and R. crenulata are becoming scarce around theworld. This scarcity may add
to their economic value, but also increases the risk of adulteration and poor quality (Booker et al. 2015).
