Feeling Blue About the Passing of Summer?
While warm days may linger for a while, the fact is, summer is officially over.
The gradually shorter days of fall and the shift to more time indoors can trigger some physiological changes in the brain, which can affect mood.
Specifically, less sunlight may cause a drop in the neurotransmitter serotonin, which in turn, can trigger low mood. Our human physiology is closely connected to the rhythms and cycles of nature!
Serotonin is a naturally soothing neurotransmitter produced by our brain throughout life. It plays multiple roles in the brain’s biochemistry and is a critical component in facilitating sustained and deep sleep, maintaining a balanced mood, self-confidence, social engagement, and even supporting healthy appetite.
So if you are feeling blue about the passing of summer – or perhaps you simply feel a gnawing sense of anxiety, or worry – supporting healthy and balanced serotonin levels in your body may help.
You may be wondering how to do this naturally.
Double board-certified psychiatrist, clinical neuroscientist and brain imaging expert, Daniel G. Amen, MD, has something for you to consider.
He recommends a combination of healthy lifestyle habits such as daily exercise, consuming “smart” carbohydrates in moderation, and taking a dietary supplement, like Serotonin Mood Support.
Serotonin Mood Support is a nutritional supplement designed by Dr. Amen to work through multiple mechanisms to optimize the brain’s serotonin levels in order to create a positive mood state.
And it’s completely natural.
In this short video, Dr. Amen and BrainMD Health’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Parris Kidd, tell you all about Serotonin Mood Support and how its winning combination of clinically researched ingredients may help lift your mood right away and help you to sail into fall with a positive outlook!
While serotonin levels may dip with less exposure to sunlight, many people suffer from low serotonin year round. According to Dr. Amen, if you answer yes to some or all of the following questions, you may have a serotonin issue:
- Do you worry frequently?
- Are you rigid?
- If things don’t go your way, do you get upset?
- Do you suffer from low mood?
- Do you have poor sleep?
- Do you lack craving control?
The good news is that the right nutritional support can help.
Serotonin Mood Support contains vitamins B6 and B12 to support healthy methyl groups, which help regulate the production of serotonin and many other neurotransmitters.
Also included is a superior saffron extract from the Middle East that is well-studied and beneficial for mood management, as well as 5-HTP which, in a number of scientific studies, has been found to help support mood and a sense of relaxation.
The bottom line is that Serotonin Mood Support uses multiple mechanisms to support healthy serotonin levels in the brain, naturally.
Here’s to a brain healthy, brain happy fall season!
