I have been using with great results the dried root of Siberian Rhodiola rosea. Made a tincture with it. In my experience it had way more effect than the pills.
The website where I found it also carried dried Rhodiola Quadrifida, said to be even more potent. I’m waiting to try that one, too (the tincture -vodka- with the dried roots is now in the process of extracting the active ingredients, which takes about a month). It’s really hard to find, though.
