Ashwagandha and Rhodiola – Combination

rhodiola and ashwagandha

Ashwagandha and Rhodiola Rosea are 2 amazing adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogens work on the entire body and help it function optimally. Because they work on the hormones and help the whole body function in a peak state, they are useful for a wide variety of conditions. They are both incredibly powerful and effective. If you try supplementing with them you will be very impressed with how well you feel.

They share a lot of similarities, but in general, ashwagandha is more relaxing and rhodiola rosea is more energizing. The 2 taken together are incredibly synergistic and give you a calm, focused, and very controlled energy throughout the day.

A lot of people ask, “which is better, rhodiola or ashwaganda”? The answer is honestly that it’s really apples and oranges. Some people prefer one over the other depending on their own biochemistry or purpose of use. But what we’ve found is that most people just love the combination of the two together. I’ll now talk about each of them individually, and then the 2 as a combo.

Let’s start with ashwagandha.

I’ve written a lot about ashwagandha. It has been used for thousands of years and there is now a lot of western scientific evidence proving how effective it is.

Here is a basic list of the benefits of ashwagandha:
  • Reduce Anxiety and Stress
  • Reduce Depression
  • Help with Sleep
  • Help People Focus and Concentrate
  • Increase Physical and Mental Stamina
  • Increase Sex Drive, Performance, and Satisfaction in Both Men and Women
  • Improve Memory, Learning, and Cognition
  • Improve Muscle Strength, Stamina, and Improve Athletic Performance
  • Decrease Inflammation
  • Improve Immune System
  • Improve Muscle to Body Fat Ratio
  • Decrease Cortisol (The body’s stress hormone)
  • Increase Testosterone in Men and Regulates Female Hormones in Women
  • Improve Mood

In general, ashwagandha gives you a very calm and peaceful state of mind, while helping your physical body function at a higher level.

Note: L-Theanine is another great supplement to combine with ashwagandha.

Now let’s talk about rhodiola rosea.

Rhodiola has been used for thousands of years as well. It was a long-time secret weapon for Russian athletes as it significantly increased their stamina and performance, giving them a huge edge over their American rivals. There was also a famous double blind study on rhodiola given to university students. The results were impressive. Rhodiola was shown to improve their mental stamina and focus, improve their physical fitness, and improve their moods. It’s a great study aid and workout supplement. It’s generally better to take during the day as it’s very energizing and may affect sleep when taken later.

Here is a list of the benefits of rhodiola rosea:
  • Increase Energy (smoother and more stable than caffeine)
  • Improve Mental Focus and Concentration
  • Reduce Anxiety and Stress
  • Reduce Depression
  • Reduce Cortisol (The body’s stress hormone)
  • Anti-Aging in some studies
  • Increased Sex Drive and Performance in Both Men and Women
  • Improve Physical Performance in Sports
  • Great Study Aid
  • Improve Mood and Well-Being

As you can see, both rhodiola and ashwagandha have a very impressive list of benefits. You’ll also see that there is a lot of overlap on the benefits.

But don’t make the mistake of thinking they are the same. Rhodiola is much more of an energizing supplement and ashwagandha is much more relaxing. Taking either can be fantastic as we’ve seen a lot of positive experiences with people taking either. But again, the most impressive results are from the people who take both together. They work well together inside the body and produce even stronger benefits than either do alone. Many people love the supplement combination for ADHD

Here are the benefits of ashwaganda and rhodiola taken together in combination:
  • Increase Energy (Both Physical and Mental – More controlled and pleasant than caffeine)
  • Improve Mental Focus – a Great Study Aid for Tests and Exams
  • Reduce Stress and Anxiety – Improve Mood and sense of well-being
  • Reduce Depression
  • Aphrodisiac – Increase Sex Drive and Performance in Both Men and Women
  • Great for Athletic Support – Take before Exercise or Sporting Event to Improve Stamina and Performance
