About Vitamins.co.nz Clinicians Good Mood
Clinicians Good Mood is a powerful specialised formula to support good mood, healthy mental clarity and focus, brain health and particularly useful in times of stress. Based on a large pool of research and scientific studies Good Mood contains 3 important amino acids and B group vitamins to support the ‘feel good’ effect.
Best taken with food – to enhance nutrient absorption. Protein helps facilitate the transport of tyrosine across the blood-brain-barrier and carbohydrates stimulate the release of insulin which helps lower peripheral levels of competing amino acids by two thirds.
Clinicians Good Mood is a scientifically validated formulation designed to support healthy brain and neurotransmitter function. It contains nutrients to support the production of dopamine, serotonin and other neurotransmitters responsible for mood balance 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is the intermediate between the amino acid L-tryptophan and the brain neurotransmitter Serotonin.
Low Serotonin levels have been linked to mood imbalances, irregular sleep patterns and tension in the head. vitamin B3 and vitamin B6 are cofactors for serotonin production. L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid. It is converted to L-tyrosine in the brain which is a precursor for the neurotransmitters dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline. A deficiency or imbalance in levels of these neurotransmitters may predispose an individual to mood swings and low moods. A deficiency in any of these nutrients can affect mood balance and sleep.
