Improve Mood with B Vitamins ( B6, B12, Folic Acid )

 Customer Service Rating by LivePerson

The B vitamins in AMORYN help the brain to maintain healthy mental and emotional balance. Proper levels of vitamins B6, B12 and Folic Acid (vitmain B9) defend the body and mind against stress. In fact, studies show that people who eat adequate amounts of B vitamins are less likely to struggle with emotional problems.1,2,3,4,5 Supplementing with AMORYN, by helping to prevent deficiencies, may promote a positive outlook.

In fact, the March 2005 issue of Alternative Medicine magazine recently recommended B vitamins as the most important vitamin/mineral supplement for improving mood. Specifically, Alternative Medicine recommended taking extra B6, B12 and folate (B9), the same three B vitamins found in AMORYN. (The article also recommended two other ingredients in AMORYN - St. John's Wort and 5-HTP - as the herb and amino acid most important for mood.)

B Vitamins to Maintain a Happy, Relaxed Outlook

B vitamins help fight occasional anxiety and poor mood by facilitating the function of neurotransmitters, the brain's natural chemical messengers that regulate emotion. They do this by allowing your brain to produce more of a natural compound called SAM-e. SAM-e, which occurs naturally in the brain, helps make serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. By boosting the levels of these "feel good" neurotransmitters, SAM-e naturally improves mood. But low levels of SAM-e can cause emotional distress.

B Vitamins Help Naturally Produce SAM-e

Unfortunately, over-the-counter SAM-e supplements are expensive and poorly absorbed by the digestive system. Luckily, the body can produce its own SAM-e using folic acid and vitamin B12, two of the B vitamins in AMORYN.6 Adding extra B12 and folic acid to your diet may bring the benefits of SAM-e without the drain on your wallet. That's why AMORYN provides potent doses of both folic acid and vitamin B12.

B Vitamins and AMORYN

Increasing dietary intake of B6, B12 and folic acid is a simple, safe and inexpensive way to improve mood, fight stress and increase mental energy. That's why AMORYN provides high doses of all three of these essential B vitamins. Their role in the AMORYN formula is to support the actions of hyperforin and 5-HTP by providing the brain with the nutrition it needs to restore emotional balance. (The small amounts of these vitamins provided by daily multivitamin formulas are sufficient for the general population but may be inadequate for individuals concerned with maintaining mental health. Even if you're taking a daily multivitamin, you may still benefit from the higher doses provided by AMORYN.)
