Why these products?
Exercise, healthy relationships, and outdoor activities rate at the top of the list for curbing depression. Nutrition also plays an important role which we discuss below.
- B Complex vitamins are vital to neurological health. In particular, B-complex nutrients are needed for the production of neurotransmitters. The correct methylated forms like you will find in our liquid B complex are crucial for optimal results.
- Magnesium is an essential mineral which plays a critical role in the nervous system and neurotransmitter production such as melatonin.
- Super Mucuna can potentially help to restore dopamine levels. Mucuna also contains 5HTP which is a precursor to serotonin.
- Camu Plus contains wholefood Vitamin C which helps convert 5HTP into Serotonin and contains zinc which has been correlated with depression. (1) Additionaly, Camu Camu has been rated excellent for depression by top herbalists.
- Aminos Plus contains all the essential amino acids needed by the body to make mood supporting neurotransmitters which support the body differently than food derived protein sources. It also contains brain supporting choline and revered mood supporting herbs like Ashwagandha and Schisandra.
- Goji Berries have long been associated with happiness in Chinese Medicine. One possible mechanism for this is that they have a very high concentration of the trace mineral, lithium. The powder ensures you easily absorb all the nutrients in the goji instead of eating the dried berries which can be prone to mold and other toxins.
