Rhodiola Source


Donna Coughlin
 

Thanks to Cass's suggestion some long while ago, I have put all three horses on rhodiola. Insulin came down, more likely due to weight loss, but I'm superstitious and would like to continue it since I'm not able to have Robin and Ariel in work now. Both herbalcom.com and Ameriherb, my usual sources have been out for several weeks and I'm running low. I've left messages to find out when it will be back in stock, and no calls back. Just emailed.  Everything else I could find (google) is $$$, including BulkSupplements.com (3+ times the cost of the others).

Anyone know of any other sources?

Thanks!!

Hi Donna,

How much are you feeding each horse?  Would substituting human capsules be an option?




Donna Coughlin
 

Thanks Sherry, I hadn't figured that out, but the capsules looked pretty expensive, they vary from 50 mg. and up (saw up to 120, rthe 25o was out of stock). I need to weigh mine again, but I'm sure it's a lot more than that (twice a day)

HOWEVER, just got an email back from ameriherb and they just got it in!

Whew.

Oh good!  Yes, I saw a lot of variation with the pricing and potency of the capsules but just a thought as a stop gap if it turned out you were in a bind.

Bulk Supplements is a standardized extract. You could probably use that at 5X the human dose (average size horse) which is only 1000 mg/day.

Thank you, Dr. Kellon and Sherry, I am feeding 1 gram of the Ameriherb rhodiola root powder to the horses ( slightly more to Ariel Max who is about 1200 lbs.), scant half of that to Duke, which is essentially a double+ dose since he weighs about 200 lbs. these days. Is there any way to know how this compares to the Bulk Supplements standardized extract? If I emailed them (since they surprisingly actually answered me!) would I just ask if their powder was a standardized extract? I'm assuming you meant an average  1000 lb. horse would get 1000 mg (1 gram) a day.    

Hope this makes sense.....

By the way, herbalcom.com also tonight shows the rhodiola root in stock! I suspect they're owned by the same people since the sites/lists are so similar (tho prices do differ a bit).
