Did You Know?
There is evidence in the scientific literature of the effects of Ashwagandha on decreasing both physical and mental fatigue. Auddy et al. performed a study in which chronically stressed participants were administered 125 mg (once per day), 250 mg (125 mg twice daily), or 500 mg (250 mg twice daily) Ashwagandha for 60 days, and researchers observed significant dose-dependent improvements in feelings of fatigue and inability to concentrate.
There is also support in the literature for the effects of Rhodiola rosea on decreasing fatigue in healthy human subjects. In a double-blind, randomized study of 161 healthy young males (aged 19-21), Shevtsov et al. observed a significant anti-fatigue effect in subjects administered both 370 mg and 555 mg Rhodiola rosea when compared to the control groups. Significant improvements in symptoms of fatigue and various aspects of attention were also reported by Olsson et al. among clinical trial participants administered 576 mg Rhodiola rosea (once daily) compared to the control group.
