A Natural Way to Boost Your Mood

There’s a certain feeling when you take a deep breath of fresh air, or climb to the peak of an epic hike and spot your view… bliss. Imagine adding that feeling to your day, everyday. Being able to nurture and nourish our state of happiness with a safe and effective supplement eases the mind in itself. Relieve stress, anxiety and get to that zen state we know and cherish when present with these key ingredients:

5-HTP

This chemical you may have heard of, either in the health and wellness world, or the relation of tryptophan and Thanksgiving. 5-hydroxytryptophan is made from the essential amino acid tryptophan which can be found in foods such as turkey, chicken and brown rice. 5-HTP converts in the body to a neurotransmitter called serotonin – a chemical responsible for mood balance, brain function and mental well-being. Research continues to prove these benefits and we wouldn’t put this stuff in Mood Lift unless we were positive it would do just that!

Vitamin B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters, especially serotonin. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, and research suggests that in conjunction with low serotonin there are also low levels of B6. Along with boosting serotonin in the brain, Vitamin B6 also has positive effects on metabolism, hormone control, managing stress, arthritis and influenza – bonus!

Magnesium

As mentioned above, it’s time to talk about where the zen comes in. Magnesium is an antidote to stress, the most powerful relaxation mineral available, and it can help improve your sleep. Think of it as the relaxation mineral. Anything that is tight, irritable, cramp and stiff – whether it is a body part or mood – is a sign of magnesium deficiency. When your body feels relaxed so does your mind, it just makes sense.

It seems like a no brainer after reading all the positive benefits listed above that our Mood Lift is an excellent choice. If we could walk around work, our day-to-day life with a relaxed Mind, Body and Soul we can take on anything. Becoming more present gives us the opportunity to experience life and the little moments that may be passing us by. Made with love, we’re here to cherish those moments with you and live life to the max.
