Fjallagrasa Icelandic Schnapps
Fjallagrasa Icelandic Schnapps is made from the lichen plant, Iceland Moss (Latin name Cetraria islandica) that grows in the mountains and wilderness of Iceland. Milled Iceland moss is soaked for a long time in a special alcoholic solution. This dissolves and extracts the biologically active compounds, which also give the colour and unique taste of the Schnapps. No artifical colour or taste is added so the Fjallagrasa Icelandic Schnapps is a pure natural product that has been produced since 1993. In the bottle we include some whole Iceland moss thalli, both for decoration and increased potency and taste. Fjallagrasa Icelandic Scnapps is a real viking drink, made from Iceland moss that is handpicked in the beautiful unpolluted highlands of Iceland. A very special Schnapps with taste from the Icelandic Nature.

A proven herbal medicine
Icelanders have used Iceland moss (Cetraria islandica) as a food supplement and herbal medicine for centuries. It is used against coughs and sore throat, as well as stomach problems and dry skin. These activities are widely known and are recognized by European health authorities. Iceland moss contains mainly water soluble fibers, lichenan (70%) and isolichenan (10%) as well as about 5% of lichenic acids. These compounds have been purified and extensively studied by highly respected scientists, one of them being Kristín Ingólfsdóttir Professor of Pharmacology and currently Rector of University of Iceland. This research has demonstrated both immunostimulating activity as well as inhibition of bacteria and viruses. Modern science therefore gives a strong support to the old folk tales and believes, that the medicinal powers of Iceland moss are real.
