Re: Energy

A vitamin b-complex is really important for energy. Also, herbs like panax ginseng, rhodiola, ashwagandha all help with energy. More importantly, you might want to look into why you need energy support? Are you iron-deficient, have you been under a great deal of stress and are your adrenals depleted? Are you getting enough restful sleep?

That's funny you would mention ashwaghanda as an "energy" herb, because I've taken it when I want to relax and go to sleep! Panax Ginseng bumps up blood pressure so much, I'd recommend Rhodiola. I was just sent some samples of a product called Energy Reserves (Verde Botanica brand) and I liked that a great deal, I'm going to order some. It has the prime adaptogens in it, such as RHodiola, Shisandra, and ELeuthero, Bacopa. My general herb of choice is Rhodiola (I use MBS-13, a special Rhodiola extract) which is in the Mind Body & spirit type of Rhodiola.

Re: Energy

Ashwagandha improves physical energy, exercise capacity and overall health.

As well as for depression.
