Head Honcho Recommendations for Usage
TIP: For maximum benefits, take in the morning on an empty stomach. Best to try with the 40 Day Stress Reduction Challenge!
The hunt for a good Rhodiola Rosea supplement has been a long one, but in bringing home the Head Honcho blend it certainly feels to be a success! Ever since HVMN Rise was reformulated, excluding the Rhodiola that we loved so much, a gaping hole was left. It's been over a year, but now I can confidently say we don't just have a replacement, but an improvement.
You may be thinking, "Well hey, surely there were others out there?"
And you wouldn't be wrong - IF you could trust the label... but unfortunately in this industry, thanks to a few shady folk, that's a luxury we don't have. In fact, Rhodiola Rosea is one of the most adulterated and faked herbs on the market. Even some that is true R.Rosea has been shown to have depleted active contents by as a result of poor extraction and storage practices.
This 2016 study investigated 40 commercially available Rhodiola Rosea products from a range of sources (including retail outlets & online sources), and analysed authenticity. Notably by Rosavin and Salidroside content - which principle active components of the herb that provide its benefits) 80% of the products were poorer quality by Rosavin content than registered for. Seven were suspected to not even be Rhodiola Rosea, instead another plant of the Rhodiola family, and in one case, not even from Rhodiola origins.
Why is there so much fake Rhodiola Rosea on the market?
The majority of Rhodiola Rosea is sourced from wild harvest (hunter-gatherer style) from the Asia and Europe regions. Right now the demand is especially high and supply isn't reliable so some suppliers are letting quality control standards slip in favour of higher profits.
Why am I so excited about this Rhodiola Rosea Supplement?
Yes the flavour is good, definately admirable considering the arse flavour Rhodiola usually has. The packaging and user experience Head Honcho provides is also well above the common standard. The fact that this is a straight Rhodiola Rosea supplement, with no other herbs or stacks involved means it provides real flexibility in use case - a biohacking dream.
But the real exciting part... is that we know that Head Honcho are providing the real deal. It's not just the fact that they use the patented, strictly controlled and studied RhodioLife extract. That's awesome, exactly the sort of ingredient sourcing we love. But you know what gets me really pumped up? It's better than trusted sourcing, hell, we don't even need the trust with this knowledge. So how do we KNOW and feel so confident this is a quality extract?
The good man Tamim who runs Head Honcho sent over the raw material lab reports to prove it.
The numbers check out, showing Rosavins @3.032% and Salidrosides @1.14%. Want to see for yourself? shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll gladly share the full results. Tamim has made them all available, including the full spectrum analysis, microbial data, heavy metals... a full Certificate of Analysis. Maybe I'm nerding out here, but a full open book like this makes me a real happy camper. Its assurance for quality that your getting what you pay for, and not a whole bunch of extra junk.
How do I use Rhodiola Rosea?
While I definately reccomend the Head Honcho 40-day Destress Protocol, this is also an awesome stacker to go with coffee or caffeine in any form.
We won't get too stuck into the mechanics of it here, but Rhodiola Rosea has demonstrated MAO inhibitory activity which can compliment caffeine benefits well. From anecdotal experiences, the theory of this plays out really well in practice. Providing a longer, perhaps slightly elevated ride from the caffeine. Without the need to jack up the caffeine itself and getting all jittery.
But hey... "Not a doctor" here so as always... this isn't medical advice. Go consult someone with an approved shiny piece of paper on his wall for that sort of service.
Any questions at all, just shoot me an email over at email@example.com and I'll gladly help out in anyway I can. Heck, if you're keen, even hit up firstname.lastname@example.org. The dude is passionate about his craft and I'm sure he would love to hear from you.
