Description of leusea carthamoides

Leuzea carthamoides (also called Rhaponticum carthamoides) is a rare endemic plant Leusea cartthamoidesbelonging to the Composite family. It is a big herbal perennial, reaching 130 cm in height. Leuzea grows on the mountain slopes in a limited area of southern Siberia (Altai, Sayani). It does not exist as a wild-growing plant in other regions of the world. Because of the limited distribution of Leusea in nature and because the plant grows slowly, the collection of wild-growing Leuzea in Russia is under government control and is restricted.

The history of Leuzea as a medicinal plant began ages ago when local hunters observed the behavior of deers known also as Marals. During the mating season, male marals had been fighting with each other. After these fights, they usually were exhausted and needed to restore their strength and power. For this purpose, the stags were digging out and ate Leuzea roots.

Having observed the behavior of the animals, the local healers started to recommend the Leusea roots to people as a mean for a power boost. Moreover, they have also discovered that consumption of a dried Leuzea root also helped men to recover from fatigue and increase their sexual strength. The plant has been thereafter named a Maral root which is now the unofficial name of Leuzea.

Scientific studies of Leuzea's effect on a human began in Russia in the 1940s and continued during World War II when the country needed natural supplements to restore the strength and faster recovery of wounded soldiers.
