I've used Maca and rhodiola.. the others I dont really pay too much attention to..

I would say your best bet is rhodiola. Good scientific, medical and real-world backup.
When taking rhodiola stick with accepted dosages, more is not necessarily better. I remember reading back in the day that high doses can actually be detrimental, or not provide the positive effects the user is looking for.

Adaptogens are very interesting herbs and certainly have their place. I like to use rhodiola off and on. Multitude of benefits..

I have considered rhodiola many times- could you go into a few of the benefits you got as far as helping bodybuilding goals?

I was the first in the USA to incorporate Rhodiola Rosea (Arctic Root) to bb regim, to enhance mental and physical performante. I was able to talk and get information on RR directly from Dr.Zakir Ramazanov, Dr.Zakir and I become very good friends. Dr.Zakir was a professor of plant biochemistry and molecular biology and he was a Senior Scientist at the Russian Academy of Science. RR has many beneficial healing properties, RR is not just another adaptogen. RR is safer than Korean ginseng even in high doses.

As far as BBing, RR can increase 50 to 80 percent liver glycogen, also RR was found that raised blood insulin levels and decreased the levels of glucagon(an insuline antagonist) it is much safer taking RR after training than insulin injections.

RR is excellent.

I am also a fan of ginseng. I prefer a mixed (korean, siberian etc) ginseng to take advantage of the different release speeds.

If not mistaken Dr. Zakir also believed in 20-Hydroxyecdysone and yes I have been taking it for over a year and love it. I take it with Oligo-peptide extract aka Humanofort. The combo is outstanding.

I also love another adaptogen called Cordyceps which I use for kidney health.

Bump for more input in this very interesting thread!

I'm a big fan of Rhaponticum Carthamoides, Cordyceps, and Suma, I'm looking in to other adaptogens while ON CYCLE. I feel even greater benefits from adaptogens when ON.

Yes, Dr.Zakir was a big beliver in Ecdysterone, yes the combination of Ecdysteron, Humanofort and Phytic acid is very effective.

I have done tons of research on Ecdysterone, and the only way to experience anabolic effects is to use.a full-spectrum Ecdysterone extract derived only from Rhaponticum Carthamoides. I've used many products and the best I've used by far is called "Omnibolic", its the real deal.
