Anyone use these, if so which ones and why & what effective dosage?
Im interested in the ones which have positive effects on performance primarily, but also ones with health benefits to.
(Withania somnifera: preferably Sensoril): Stress relief, improved sleep, and performance enhancement. I take 200mg (Abyss UP) or up to 450mg (3 caps ) when I use it. Haven't used it standalone.
Rosea (standardized to 3% rosavins and 1% salidroside): Stress relief and energy (reduced fatigue). Too much is just as inefficient as too little. I prefer 500mg pre-workout or upon waking (it can be somewhat stimulating).
Bacopa Monnieri (50% Bacopasides): Nootropic and anxiety relief.
Those are the three I use most often. Sure others can throw in more options as well.
Don't miss out on the next deal:
I love Rhodiola Rosea. I notice a big difference when using it. Compete includes it in it's formula in the "mental edge complex"

Coincidentally, after posting in this thread I just saw Herb Pharm brand rhodiola at walgreens. Just bought it. Will let you guys know if it's worth a crap.
I also recommend the aforementioned adaptogens. Currently experimenting with Korean/red ginseng. Really seems to shine on days where I am fatigued.
