Ive actually “megadosed” it on occasion when shit really hit the roof and then walked around all day in a semi zombified “unfeeling” state. It felt great as I could literally weave through people and situations humming along without giving a fuck.
I wouldn’t recommend it.
So yeah, Ashwagandha works - but its a sedative in moderate to large dosages.
Rhodiola is a different adaptogen. Horses for courses.
I have a thread in the Biotest Supp forum regarding supplements to help reduce inflammation, decrease estrogen and increase test.
Throughout my research I have found that stress lowers T-levels and increases inflammation so I was thinking of including Biotest’s Rhodiola to the arsenal. In researching that product I found another similar herb based supplement called Ashwangandha.
I was just wondering if anyone had ever used this sup, what their experience was, and what kind they believe is the best.
Thanks in advance[/quote]
"Ashwagandha is an Adaptogen. It is supplemented primarily for its ability to prevent anxiety. AshwagandhaÃ¢??s anti-anxiety effect is even synergistic with alcohol. It also shows promise for relieving insomnia and stress-induced depression. Ashwagandha can significantly reduce cortisol concentrations and the immunosuppressive effect of stress.
Beyond reducing stress levels, ashwagandha can improve physical performance in both sedentary people and athletes, as well as reduce Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Ashwagandha can improve the formation of memories, and may be able to treat AlzheimerÃ¢??s disease, though more human evidence is needed before supplementation can be recommended specifically for AlzheimerÃ¢??s."
I’ve used both and prefer Ashwagandha to RR. In large doses Ashwagandha makes me itchy for some reason.[/quote]
