Overpower – Physical Performance Support
Better stamina and endurance. Less fatigue. Improved recovery. Better training effect from both endurance and resistance training. Certain herbals improve active body function. When combined, their effects are compounded. Meet Overpower – the best in natural sports supplementation.
Overpower is designed to help maintain stamina and endurance under heavy strain by optimizing stress responses in all active organ systems – muscular, nervous, circulatory, endocrine and respiratory.
Overpower’s 100% natural formulation contains a blend of 10 herbal compounds. All ingredients are nutraceutical-grade extracts of the highest quality.
Overpower contains extracts of five of the best, science-proven performance-supporting adaptogenic herbs: Ashwagandha, Eleuthero, Cordyceps militaris, Ginseng and Rhodiola rosea. They are complemented by five other natural ingredients such as Shilajit and Mucuna bean to augment the adaptogenic effect and to supply crucial micronutrients into active tissues.
Adaptogens enable the body to withstand more physical stress and sustain activity by adapting the functioning of stressed organ systems. They accelerate the production and release of certain hormones and proteins – and decelerate it for others. They increase the rates of oxygen, protein, fat and carbohydrate utilization. They modulate key physiological parameters such as the resting heart rate and the respiratory rate.
Using multiple adaptogens simultaneously boosts and extends their effect, resulting in allround performance support.
Due to its nature, Overpower is highly versatile. It is being used across a range of activities – resistance training, ultra endurance activities, HIIT, combat sports, recovery from overtraining, lowering base heart rates and more.
On lactic acid buildup
Once lactate threshold is breached, lactic acid buildup causes fatigue and soreness. Three adaptogens in Overpower – Cordyceps, Ashwagandha and Eleuthero, have been shown to help maintain a steady lactate state, which helps active muscles stay active for longer and recover faster.
Muscular system: compounds in Overpower have been shown to suppress lactic acid buildup, boost ATP production, increase fat burning and act as superb electrolytes to deliver micronutrients into active muscle tissue.
- Nervous system: compounds in Overpower have been shown to stimulate neurotransmission responsible for willpower, motivation, learning and fine motor skills.
Endocrine system: compounds in Overpower have been shown to help grow muscle and to suppress catabolic processes by modulating hormonal production cascades over multiple phases.
Respiratory system: compounds in Overpower have been shown to raise the ventilatory threshold and improve respiratory rate and VO2max.
Circulatory system: compounds in Overpower have been shown to modulate the resting heart rate and its recovery, as well as modulate nitric oxide production and therefore improve circulation and nutrient delivery.

Strain stimulates the release of hormone regulator cortisol, which has a catabolic effect on tissues. Too much cortisol for too long causes serious negative effects – a problem for endurance athletes whose long-term cortisol exposure is often high. All five adaptogens in Overpower have proven to suppress rising cortisol levels.
Mechanism of Action
Broad, multi-channel and networked modulation of physical stress reactions.
Areas of Application
Maintaining stamina and endurance across multiple physiological factors. Improving training response from endurance and resistance exercise. Improving recovery and quality of rest. Recovering from overtraining and hypogonadism. Reducing the risk of overtraining. Extended field operations.
Duration of Effect
Overpower has a flexible dosing range, ie. the suitable dose varies according to individual response and amount of external stress.
The recommended dose for active athletes is 3 capsules of Overpower Alpha and 3 capsules of Overpower Omega per day. This dose is suited for frequent exercise or when under strain.
Smaller doses of Alpha and Omega are recommended for more sedentary individuals, or when experiencing less strain and stress. We recommend trying out different dosing combinations to find the best individual response.
We recommend that the Alpha dose is taken in the morning or before noon, preferably at or near the same time every day. The recommended intake time for OP Omega is more flexible. It can be taken simultaneously with Alpha or e.g. an hour before exercise, or in the afternoon to boost OP Alpha and to provide energy for the rest of the day. We recommend that Omega is not taken late in the evening (unless the user is active at night-time), as it may affect sleep.
Things to note
The amounts of bioactive compounds in an Overpower dose correspond with the dosages that have induced verified performance-supporting results in both Rohtos Labs’ own product tests as well as scientific research by others. In general, the amounts of adaptogenic extracts in an Overpower dose fall into the low dose stimulatory range of concentrations.
