I'm using omega 3 currently and I want to add another supplement.

I'm thinking about using another supplement and undecided between Ashwagandha and Rhodiola Rosea .

This webpage shows that ashwaganda is better for my cause (compared to Rhadiola Rosea , which is used to relieve fatigue and deppression and to improve general cognition and subjective well being.)

Ashwaganda: https://examine.com/supplements/ashwagandha/ Rhadiola rosea: https://examine.com/supplements/rhodiola-rosea/

Meanwhile in the webpage drugs.com there is more evidence regarding to the effects I want to achieve

R.R: https://www.drugs.com/npp/rhodiola-rosea.html A. : https://www.drugs.com/npp/ashwagandha.html

I will read further in the references to get a better understanding of the mechanisms of each plant, although I believe Ashwaganda is better .

Any comment and suggestion is well welcomed.

P.s: I want to stay away from synthetic medication as much as possible and I don't believe my neurologist is this much well informed to help me in the choice (I think it would be easier for him to give Adaptol as he has done before)

Thank you in Advance !
