Mood Support - 90 Vcaps
 
  • Nervous System Support
  • Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Extracts for a Balanced Mood
  • Helps to Maintain Positive Attitude
  • Vegetarian Formula


NOW Mood Support is a nutritional supplement that contains both nutrients and herbal extracts that aid in the support of a healthy nervous system and a positive, balanced mood state.  Helps with depression, irritablility, negative thoughts, feelings of sadness.  

 St. John’s Wort, a perennial extract that blooms from June to September has been shown to help support a positive, balanced mood state. It contains a number of potent compounds such as hyperforin and hypericin that exhibit antidepressant, antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

These compounds raise the release of specific neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, that modulate brain signals between cells and play a significant role in the optimal functionality of our nervous system. Hypericin in St. John's Wort may also be capable of inhibiting a bodily chemical, monoamine oxidase, which is associated with anxiety and depression. Consequently, this herb induces the sense of well being that is very helpful for mild to moderate depression, mood swings, low energy levels, and chronic fatigue.

St. John's Wort is especially known for its anti-depressant activity. It is a popular herb that has been used for thousands of years as a painkiller or sedative, as well as to treat numerous conditions including burns, bruises, mood swings, and sleep disorders.
Recent studies have found that St. John's Wort may also help Parkinson's disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, nerve pain, depression, anxiety and mental disorders.

Holy Basil has been shown to possess powerful adpatogenic properties and has been used to enhance the body's ability to respond to stress and minimize the negative effects of stress on the body.

In several studies, subjects were continually subjected to stress leading to elevated levels of stress hormones. After treatment with holy basil, the stress hormone levels were brought back to normal. Supplementation dramatically reduced their corticosterone levels, helping the subjects cope with stress, and elevating their mood and mental clarity.

Valerian root can lessen the harmful effects of stress on a person’s body, so it can also be an effective therapy for nervousness and anxiety. When taken three times or more during the day, including taking it before bedtime, relieves anxiety. Some studies show that the herb may provide quick relief for poor sleep, but it may take two to four weeks of daily use to bring improved sleep for people with serious insomnia.

5-HTP converts directly into serotonin in the brain. Serotonin has many profoundly important functions, including a role in sleep, appetite, memory, learning, temperature regulation, mood, sexual behavior. The level of serotonin in certain areas of your brain can have a major effect on your mood.
