Biotest's Rhodiola Rosea Results

Now that this stuff has been out for some time, I am curious if anyone has used it consistently to know if it works. What has been your experience using it?

it most likely wont be anything u can tell a diffrence from

Helps me sleep. That’s the main thing - mellows me out, and I sleep a lot better on it… Guess that’s the main stuff, for me.

So it hasn’t made you want to pillage and plunder a small Scottish monastery on an island near Norway.

I notice that I don’t get worn down from stress, physical or mental, while using.

I just feel better all around while on Rhodiola

Very much so, I’m pretty stressed out on a regular basis (Not enough sleep, too much studying, etc) when I hit weeks with massive stress coming up I load up on it and I don’t notice as much of a loss, if any, on gains I’ve made in the gym.

I take them on heavy exam weeks and I end up no worse for the wear and tear I put on my body with loads of Spike and little sleep.

the difference is really noticeable, at work and at the gym, even when playing video games lol

after an heavy sets of deadlift/squat, usually im really stressed, ill look everywhere and be “jumpy” but with rhodiola im super calm after, i just stand there listen to my music like nothing happened

its also alot easier to just focus on one thing
