Two confidence boosting supplements - Women in Confidence

Episode 59

Supplements to boost confidence with Vanessa Murphy

Hello, I'm Vanessa the host of Women In Confidence. Welcome and thanks for listening. I designed this podcast to appeal to working women who want to understand what confidence is, what you can do to build (or rebuild) your confidence and then maintain it. I interview amazing women who have genuine stories to tell about their journey through life and how they manage the ups and downs of life.

This week it is just me - talking about the 2 supplements that I take to boost my confidence, my energy and to lift my mood. These 2 supplements are Ashwagandha and Rhodiola. They are both adaptogenic which means they contain active ingredients from certain plants and mushrooms that may impact how your body deals with stress, anxiety and fatigue. Over the last couple of years I have been feeling really tired and stressed and never feeling normal. Since I have started taking these two products, I can honestly say my moods and energy levels are more consistent. This means I can be much more relaxed about how I show up and how I perform - which gives me confidence in my abilities.

For more information on Ashwagandha and Rhodiola - my recommendation is the internet - good old Google but also speak to a naturopath who will be well educated in both these two supplements.

Good luck and let me know how you get on by emailing me on

Profile picture for Vanessa Murphy

Vanessa Murphy

Vanessa is a HR Consultant, The Founder of Boom Podcast Agency and a Podcast Host.
Vanessa got her first proper job in 1998 when she joined as an Officer in the Royal Navy and then after 15 years doing that, she transitioned into senior HR and Culture roles working for organisations all over the world.
She now has 2 strings to her bow....
Firstly, she is an empath, avid people watcher and she likes to observe people when they were operating with confidence and self-belief and learn strategies, tools and techniques from them. She helps women with confidence at work and her Women In Confidence podcast is a way for her to share her knowledge and her network with a wider audience.

Secondly, she has always been fascinated by what makes a company great to work for and now devotes her time to creating workplaces that not only have impressive performance but are also human centred - hint... they are not mutually exclusive. Her Conversations About Company Culture podcast is her way of sharing ways to build great organisations.
