  • 3. "Withania somnifera, commonly known as ashwagandha, is a herb used in Ayurveda medicine. Ashwagandha means ‘Smell of Horse, ’ which refers to the fresh root’s distinct horsey smell, and the traditional belief that ingesting the herb will confer the strength and virility of a horse. "Ashwagandha is an Adaptogen. It is supplemented primarily for its ability to prevent anxiety. Ashwagandha’s anti—anxiety effect is even synergistic with alcohol. It also shows promise for relieving insomnia and stress—induced depression. Ashwagandha can significantly reduce cortisol concentrations and the immunosuppressive effect of stress.

  • 4. Read the Studies % Effect of standardized aqueous extract of Withania somnifera on tests of cognitive and psychomotor performance in healthy human participants Results Significant improvements were observed in reaction times with simple reaction, choice discrimination, digit symbol substitution, digit vigilance, and card sorting tests with Withania somnifera extract compared to placebo. However, no effect can be seen with the finger tapping test. Conclusion These results suggest that Withania somnifera extract can improve cognitive and psychomotor performance and may, therefore, be a valuable adjunct in the treatment of diseases associated with cognitive impairment. ncbi. nlm. nih. gov/ pubmed/24497737
  • 5. Rho liola Rosea
  • 6. "Rhodiola rosea is a Traditional Chinese Medicine and Scandinavian herb touted to promote physical/ cognitive vitality. It appears to be proven for reducing fatigue and exhaustion in prolonged stressful situations. Rhodiola is also neuroprotective and promotes longevity in preliminary evidence. ''In regards to fatigue, rhodiola appears to be able to significantly reduce the effects of prolonged and minor physical exhaustion that results in fatigue. This is more related to stress and the 'burnout' effect, or prolonged but low intensity physical exercise. " examine. com/ supplements/ rhodiola-rosea/
  • 7. Read the Studies $ Therapeutic effects and safety of Rhodiola rosea extract WS® 1375 in subjects with life-stress symptoms: results of an open-label study Results The trial was conducted to investigate the therapeutic effects and safety of a 4 week treatment with Rhodiola rosea extract WS®1375 in subjects with | ife—stress symptoms. This was a multicentre, non—randomized, open-label, single-arm trial. One hundred and one subjects were enrolled in this clinical study and received the study drug at a dose of 200 mg twice daily for 4 weeks. Assessments with seven questionnaires included Numerical Analogue Scales of Subjective Stress Symptoms, Perceived Stress Questionnaire, Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory 20, Numbers Connecting Test, Sheehan Disability Scale and Clinical Global Impressions to cover various aspects of stress symptoms and adverse events. lnvariably, all tests showed clinically relevant improvements with regard to stress symptoms, disability, functional impairment and overall therapeutic effect. Improvements were observed even after 3 days of treatment, as were continuing improvements after 1 and 4 weeks. Rhodiola rosea extract WS®1375 was safe and generally well tolerated. Adverse events were mostly of mild intensity and no serious adverse events were reported. Rhodiola extract at a dose of 200 mg twice daily for 4 weeks is safe and effective in improving life—stress symptoms to a clinically relevant degree. ncbi. nlm. nih. gov/ pubmed/22228617
  • 8. Read the Studies % A randomized trial of two different doses of a SH R-5 Rhodiola rosea extract versus placebo and control of capacity for mental work Results A randomized, double—blind, placebo—controlled, para| |e| —group clinical study with an extra non—treatment group was performed to measure the effect of a single dose of standardized SHR-5 Rhodiola rosea extract on capacity for mental work against a background of fatigue and stress. An additional objective was to investigate a possible difference between two doses, one dose being chosen as the standard mean dose in accordance with wel| —estab| ished medicinal use as a psychostimulant/ adaptogen, the other dose being 50% higher. Some physiological parameters, e. g. pulse rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, were also measured. The study was carried out on a highly uniform population comprising 161 cadets aged from 19 to 21 years. All groups were found to have very similar initial data, with no significant difference with regard to any parameter. The study showed a pronounced antifatigue effect reflected in an antifatigue index defined as a ratio called AFI. The verum groups had AFI mean values of1.0385 and 1.0195, 2 and 3 capsules respectively, whilst the figure for the placebo group was 0.9046. This was statistically highly significant (p < 0.001) for both doses (verum groups), whilst no significant difference between the two dosage groups was observed. There was a possible trend in favour of the lower dose in the psychometric tests. No such trend was found in the physiological tests. ncbi. nlm. nih. gov/ pubmed/12725561
  • 9. Iron c2
  • 10. "Heme is an iron—containing compound found in a number of biologically important molecules. Hemoglobin and myoglobin are heme—containing proteins that are involved in the transport and storage of oxygen. "Cytochromes are heme-containing compounds that have important roles in mitochondrial electron transport; therefore, cytochromes are critical to cellular energy production and thus life. They serve as electron carriers during the synthesis of ATP, the primary energy storage compound in cells. ” lpi. oregonstate. edu/ mic/ minerals/ iron Image credit: FotoosVanRobin, commons. wikimedia. org
  • 11. Read the Studies $ Iron supplementation for unexplained fatigue in non-anaemic women: double blind randomised placebo controlled trial Results 136 (94%) women completed the study. Most had a low serum ferritin concentration; 5 20 pg/ I in 69 (51%) women. Mean age, haemoglobin concentration, serum ferritin concentration, level of fatigue, depression, and anxiety were similar in both groups at baseline. Both groups were also similar for compliance and dropout rates. The level of fatigue after one month decreased by -1.82/6.37 points (29%) in the iron group compared with - 0.85/6.46 points (13%) in the placebo group (difference 0.95 points, 95% confidence interval 0.32 to 1.62; P=0.004). Subgroups analysis showed that only women with ferritin concentrations 5 50 pg/ I improved with oral supplementation. Conclusion Non—anaemic women with unexplained fatigue may benefit from iron supplementation. The effect may be restricted to women with low or borderline serum ferritin concentrations. bmj. com/ content/326/7399/1124
  • 12. 45% Magnesium c2
  • 13. "Magnesium is an essential mineral and a cofactor for hundreds of enzymes. Magnesium is involved in many physiologic pathways, including energy production. "The metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to produce energy requires numerous magnesium-dependent chemical reactions. Magnesium is required by the adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—synthesizing protein in mitochondria. ATP, the molecule that provides energy for almost all metabolic processes, exists primarily as a complex with magnesium.

  • 14. Read the Studies $ Red blood cell magnesium and chronic fatigue syndrome Abstract The hypotheses that patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) have low red blood cell magnesium and that magnesium treatment would improve the wellbeing of such patients. were tested in a case—control study and a randomised, double—blind, placebo-controlled trial, respectively. In the case—control study, 20 patients with CFS had lower red cell magnesium concentrations than did 20 healthy control subjects matched for age, sex, and social class (difference O-1 mmol/ I, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0-05 to 0-15). In the clinical trial, 32 patients with CFS were randomly allocated either to intramuscular magnesium sulphate every week for 6 weeks (15 patients) or to placebo (17). Patients treated with magnesium claimed to have improved energy levels, better emotional state, and less pain, as judged by changes in the Nottingham health profile. 12 of the 15 treated patients said that they had benefited from treatment, and in 7 patients energy score improved from the maximum to the minimum. By contrast, 3 of the 17 patients on placebo said that they felt better (difference 62%, 95% Cl 35 to 90), and 1 patient had a better energy score. Red cell magnesium returned to normal in all patients on magnesium but in onlyl patient on placebo. The findings show that magnesium may have a role in CFS. sciencedirect. com/ science/ article/ pii/0140673691913712
