Supplements bost health claims related to your physical health, like improved immune system function and decreased PMS symptoms. But what about your mental health? There are plenty of supplements that have been linked to improved cognitive function, elevated mood, and better sleep.
Supplements for Energy and Clarity
Recent studies have found that B vitamins may help to support your nervous system and help you to feel less tired and fatigued throughout the day. Further, prolonged stress and anxiety can actually deplete your B vitamin stores and perpetuate feelings of worry and irritability in addition to overall lack of energy.
B12 in particular may help you to stay focused and energetic throughout your day, and this vitamin can be found in a variety of over-the-counter supplements as well as in some tea blends.
Supplements for Sleep
Sleep can become elusive in times of stress and during the transition into spring. Lacking sleep can take a toll on not only your physical health and immune system but your mental health and well-being too.
If you’re struggling to sleep, supplements that contain magnesium may be your best bet. Magnesium is a mineral essential to the nervous system and psychological health, and it’s also vital in metabolizing energy. Low levels of magnesium can also worsen feelings of anxiety and depression. Taking a magnesium supplement may help in managing stress and getting your sleep cycle back under control.
Supplements for Mood
If you struggle with low mood and want to find a natural solution look no further than oMega 3 supplements. We have previously covered how Fish Oil and its plant-based alternatives can positively impact symptoms of depression and anxiety, so it comes as no surprise that Omega-3 Fatty acids play a role in optimizing your serotonin levels.
It’s important to know that in order for serotonin to be usable in the brain, it must be converted to a suitable form by the amino acid Tryptophan. This conversion is largely powered by Vitamin D -- which is partially why a lack of vitamin D is linked with low mood in the winter months. Taking a Vitamin D supplement may help to boost your mood, working alongside an omega 3 fatty acid supplement or on its own.
