Adaptogens
 
"They’re nontoxic, mostly side effect–free, and—get this—they help your body counter physical, chemical, or biological stress, says David Winston, the eminent herbal educator"

Technically, couldn't this be a very helpful supplement that could facilitate CNS recovery, especially for: powerlifters, olympic weightlifters, and 100m/ 200m sprinters? For instance: BIOTEST® Rhodiola Rosea

i currently use the biotest product(2pills on training days and 1pill on off days) and find it very useful. It really helps with deep restorative sleep. It doesn't do much if u don't have all ur other nutrition down. if u skip ur post workout nutrition or just plain eat lk crap it might help to some degree but not so much.

Matthieu,
Seriously? Is this a shameless plug for Biotest now that you write for them, or are you just not willing to do some Google-Fu?

Adaptogens help the body to deal with stress *now*, they don't tend to help so much with repairing damage accumulated by the body previously.

Adaptogen definition

Honestly, I was just looking to see people's thoughts on the matter. I looked up what it was before posting, but like any other product, idea, or practice I like to get other people's opinions on it based on their experience. I didn't think it would be a problem, just inquiring

Not in my experience

********* I have used Botanabol from Naturahealthproducts that has several adaptogens in it the most effective for anabolism being Rhaponticum. Having taken anabolic steroids in the past i can say unequivocally that the effect from an anabolic standpoint is about 30-50 %. That by the way is very significant. I knew personally Ben Tabachnick who brought many of the Soviet "legal" or "natural" supplements to the U.S. in early 90's and they are backed up by a significant volume of research. Adaptogens can relieve stress, lower cortisol, improve insulin sensitivity and improve anabolism.
