Energy + Mood
Our formula combines B12 (methylated for optimal absorption), 5-htp and Folic Acid that:
- Increases energy levels
- Diminishes mood swing tendencies
- Promotes eye, brain and heart health
5 HTP (5- Hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid that is not produced by the body nor found in the food we consume. This chemical byproduct is found in the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia Simplicifolia. 5- HTP helps increase the production of serotonin in the brain which plays an important role in the central nervous system and therefore helps regulate mood, appetite, sleep, and relieves pain. Research has found that this chemical can help reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Vitamin B12 does not occur naturally within the body and needs to be consumed through certain food products or by way of supplementary oral consumption or injection. Many people are deficient in B12 without realising it. Due to its key role in energy production, those deficient in this vitamin will experience a boost in energy once optimum levels are reached. It is also contributes to the general function of the immune system.
Folic acid, also known as folate or Vitamin B9, aids the conversion of food into fuel for the body, producing energy. Deficiencies in this key supplement have been linked to a heightened risk of depression. Folic acid increases the receptiveness of depression patients to antidepressant medication. Research indicates that together with a B12 supplement, folic acid can lower the risk of stroke due to its key role in managing homocysteine levels (raised levels of this hormone can put one at risk of developing cardiovascular conditions).
