Mental Health Supplements
How a combination of Vitamins and Minerals will Optimize your Mental Health
Mental health covers a lot of aspects including psychological, emotional, and social well-being and in turn, there are a lot of processes and resources used to maintain this. We provide a range of supplements (in capsules or liquids) to aid you in replenishing or enhancing the ones you feel you need or we have Multinutrients for maintenance of overall optimal health.
Vitamin B6 is great for improving energy, as it boosts blood oxygen levels and mood as it aids the production of Progesterone as well as helping the liver in breaking down Estrogen. Hormonally, Zinc is also key to modulating your mood as it activates hormonal neurotransmitters and signaling pathways that regulate cognitive function. B6 is also necessary in the production of serotonin, dopamine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid ( neurotransmitters that regulate emotions) making it effective in reducing symptoms of depression. B6 and B12 also regulate amino acid tryptophan which is used in the production of melatonin, known as the sleep hormone, and we all know good sleep is vital for mental health and a better mood.
B12 and Folic Acid are also involved in the synthesis of serotonin and well as preserving nerve health and cognitive function. B12 does this by maintaining nerve cells and red blood cells which transport oxygen to the body and brain minimizing fatigue and low moods, great for keeping mentally healthy and also ideal for pregnant women. Iron is also key in this function as it is part of the production of hemoglobin that allows the oxygen to be carried by the red blood cells.
Vitamin C and D also help to regulate your mood and ward off depression. Vitamin D is produced by the body naturally when exposed to sunlight but during the winter or the indoor nature of many jobs, a supplement of this may be needed, especially during the winter months to aid with seasonal affective disorder. Vitamin C is a great immune booster but also helps improve cognitive function and lifts your energy levels.
Whatever your personal mental health needs, it is important to find the supplement that will support you the best. All our supplements have a list of uses and ingredients to help you find the right fit.
