Natural Mood balancing supplement

How to Boost Your Mood Naturally

Feeling like you've tried everything to keep your emotions balanced but still find yourself grappling with rage, tears, anxiety, and tension? Menopause is a major life shift, marked by hormonal fluctuations that deeply influence our mood and stress levels. In particular, the impacts of stress have been shown to linger in the body, making the menopause transition even more challenging.


Why does menopause affect our mood?

The primary hormones affected during menopause are estrogen and progesterone, which play crucial roles in regulating our emotions and stress response. As we enter perimenopause, the transitional phase leading up to menopause, these hormone levels fluctuate irregularly, leading to a wide variety of physical and emotional symptoms.

The decline in estrogen levels, in particular, is linked to mood disturbances. Estrogen influences the production and activity of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which are involved in mood regulation. As estrogen levels decline, the balance of these neurotransmitters is disrupted, leading to symptoms such as irritability, mood swings, anxiety, anger, and feeling overwhelmed.

In addition, these hormonal changes are responsible for many other menopause-related symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, and sleep disturbances, all of which can contribute to increased feelings of low mood, fatigue, and emotional instability, making it more challenging to cope with our everyday work and family commitments.


The science behind our daily mood-support supplement

When we experience ongoing stress, anxiety, and fluctuations in mood due to hormonal changes, it can deplete our body of key essential nutrients and minerals needed to help restore balance. Additionally, the body may use up these nutrients more rapidly during times of heightened stress to support various physiological processes, such as metabolism, hormone regulation, and immune function, further exacerbating deficiencies. 

So, when formulating a daily supplement to support our emotions, we looked to replenish these vital nutrients and minerals and blend them with clean plant actives that are clinically proven to support healthy mood balance, reduce stress, and relieve symptoms of mild anxiety while supporting our brain health and nervous system.

Here’s all the details on the carefully selected evidence-based ingredients in  'Mood' our daily mood-support supplement.


St. John's Wort

St. John's Wort is a renowned herbal remedy known for its ability to help alleviate anxiety and mood fluctuations. Extensive clinical trials have demonstrated its effectiveness, showing it to be as potent as certain pharmaceutical medications. This clinical trial in women aged 43 to 65 years old showed substantial improvements in psychological menopausal symptoms, as did this controlled study. Its active components, including hypericin and hyperforin, interact with key neurotransmitters in the brain, which are crucial for mood regulation, reducing anxiety, and helping us feel more balanced.


Saffron has remarkable mood-enhancing properties, supported by robust scientific research. Studies have proven that saffron extract can be as effective as some pharmaceutical treatments for mood and anxiety disorders. Its active components, including crocin and safranal, are believed to modulate neurotransmitter levels in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine, often referred to as our happy hormones, which play pivotal roles in balancing our mood and emotions. Moreover, saffron's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties contribute to its therapeutic effects on mood disorders, offering a holistic approach to emotional support.

Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is well known for its profound calming effects, acting quickly to soothe the mind and body. Rich in compounds like linalool and linalyl acetate, reaserch has shown lavender oil provides a gentle, effective solution for relieving mild anxiety and promoting a sense of calm and overall well-being.

Green Tea Leaf

Green tea contains an amino acid called L-theanine, which is well known for its calming effects. L-theanine works quickly to aid relaxation and reduce stress by increasing levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. At the same time, green tea also contains caffeine, which provides a gentle, quick lift in mood and alertness without the jittery side effects often associated with caffeine consumption. Together, the combination of L-theanine and caffeine in green tea has been shown to promote a state of calmness and an improved mood. 

Vitamin C 

Stress can leave us depleted in vitamin C, needed for its crucial role in the synthesis of serotonin and dopamine that improve our mood and keep us feeling emotionally balanced. Additionally, vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant, protecting the brain from oxidative stress and inflammation, and is essential for supporting a healthy nervous system.


Zinc, an essential mineral for mood support, is often depleted when we're feeling stressed. As well as playing a vital role in regulating serotonin, zinc is crucial for maintaining the balance of other brain chemicals, such as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which has calming effects on the brain, helping to alleviate anxiety and promote relaxation.

Folate and vitamin B12

Together, folate (also known as vitamin B9) and vitamin B12 work together synergistically to support healthy mood balance and contribute to optimal brain function and emotional well-being. Deficiencies in either nutrient can lead to mood disturbances, anxiety, and increased susceptibility to stress.
