Ceretropic's "Super Rhodiola" is IMHO the best Rhodiola supplement. Strong a** stuff! Energy and obliterates muscle soreness. HINT: Use it with hard work and before a run!

I plan on trying Meridian Botanicals' kanna and maybe kava. They seem to have a good reputation. :)

I purchased bulk rhodiola extract from amazon.com. It tastes horrid when you get it straight on your tongue, but I like mixing it with hot water and stevia. It makes a good tea. :) I have yet to find out if heat damages it.

Where did you get the powder? Have you ever tried making tea from cut up roots? I'm thinking about getting some from this place:

I've purchased cats claw from them in the past and the quality of the cats claw seemed pretty good.

I'm glad it worked out that way! :)

I bought the powder. It's a bit tricky to measure out because you only need a tiny amount. If cost wasn't an issue for me, I would buy capsules in the smallest dose. That would make it easier to tinker with the grams taken. That or a scale that measures milligrams.

Hey Jasmin Funnily enough I was looking into buying some rhodiola so your post could not have come at a more perfect moment :)

Did you buy the powder or in capsule form ?

I thought I'd share my experiences with rhodiola. I really like it! I can see using it on no-kratom days for energy and a mood boost. The first time I took it was first thing in the morning. I am not a morning person at all, and I was especially groggy. 15-20 minutes after taking rhodiola I felt wide awake and ready to go, and not in an unnatural, drugged way. I thought to myself that I didn't even need coffee, but I wanted it. ;o) It also gave me clarity of mind and a sense of well being.

I am concerned about taking this with anxiety though, and there are plenty of web pages out there with warnings. Some people find it helps anxiety, others have their anxiety increase. I really need to get a milligram scale, because dose is important with this stuff. And who has a 1/32 teaspoon? lol One time I took it, I was just on the border of being over stimulated. I read rhodiola is like kratom in that smaller doses are more stimulating and larger doses sedating. I'm a little nervous to experiment with larger doses because just a pinch of rhodiola effects my body.

Anyway, for depression and fatigue, I would definitely recommend trying this. Anxiety sufferers should be cautious.
