Mind, Mood & Stress
Emotional and mental health is as important as physical health and one can certainly affect the other. A strong mind is akin to a strong immune system because it enables us to cope with life’s demands and stresses.
There are many strategies for building a strong mind. Taking supplements that have been shown to support the mind can help boost our brain function and mood because stress and trauma can deplete important vitamins and minerals. Low mood and poor health can also affect our food choices so there may be some gaps in our diet and a lack of essential nutrients, which may be preventing our hormones and mind from functioning as they should.
Combat Low Mood and Stress
We have a wide range of supplements which can help with low mood, amongst these are 5 HTP and Ashwagandha.
5 HTP is widely used to help with low mood, anxiety and insomnia. It increases the production of serotonin, essential for wellbeing, appetite, digestion, sleep, memory and social behaviour.
Ashwagandha is one of the best stress relieving supplements, which can also help balance hormone levels in men and women. Ashwagandha can help to relieve low mood and anxiety and can help with libido and fertility too. We use Ashwagandha KSM-66® which is the highest-concentration extract in the world market and is drawn using only the roots of the Ashwagandha plant.
Improve Focus and Concentration
Another role of supplements is their use in enhancing mental focus, concentration and clarity. Supplements such as our Panax Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba and our Nootropic formula, Cognitive Enhance, all contain high-quality natural ingredients which help to improve cognitive function, mental focus and concentration. These can be helpful in the work environment, for physical training or high-pressure situations like interviews or presentations for example.
Our Panax Ginseng capsules have the highest potency of the active ingredients, 'Ginsenosides', which contribute towards clear thinking, concentration, memory, and efficiency. Ginseng is popular with athletes and those performing vigorous exercise, plus it has the added benefit of helping relieve anxiety and stress.
Our nootropic formula blends several mind enhancing ingredients, for example choline and l-tyrosine which stimulate natural biochemical processes in brain cell membranes and help the body produce new neurotransmitters. Our Cognitive Enhance Nootropics help with improved focus, better memory and attention span.
We have both a caffeine version for in the morning (caffeine is a brain-boosting substance that can make us more alert and faster at processing information) and a non-caffeine version for later in the day, so as not to disrupt sleep.
