✨Supplements for Natural Mood Support ✨




So many people deal with feeling crabby, irritated, sad, or blue…..thinking there is nothing they can do except go to their doctor for a prescription.


Sure, there may be some people who could benefit from a prescription, but I bet that MORE could benefit from eating healthier foods, exercising, and taking targeted nutritional supplements.


Here are some supplements I use for mood support:


💊 St. John’s Wort

St. John’s Wort is an herb that can be taken as a liquid or capsule and has been shown to support mood. It does interact with some medications and supplements, so check with your doctor to be sure it is safe for you.


💊 Tryptophan or 5-HTP

Tryptophan is a naturally occurring amino acid in foods but can be boosted with supplementation. Tryptophan crosses into the brain, where it is converted into 5-HTP and then into serotonin. It can also interact with medications.


💊 B Vitamins

B vitamins are needed for many enzymes in the body and brain to work—including enzymes that produce serotonin and other neurotransmitters! Your body needs a balance of B vitamins, which you can get in a B Complex or multivitamin.


💊 Omega-3s

Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that are concentrated in fatty fish, nuts, and seeds. They support healthy inflammatory pathways and have been shown in studies to support mood!


Please note this post is purely educational (not medical advice), and I encourage you to see a health practitioner if you struggle with mood.
