Q: Are there any supplements to help with mood?
A: Saffron has multiple human clinical trials showing effectiveness for promoting healthy mood, even when compared to traditional SSRI antidepressants, and for supporting cognitive function. It may also improve symptoms of erectile dysfunction and overall sexual function in men.
Mood Matrix contains saffron, L-5-HTP, GABA, Magnesium, Zinc, Vit. B6, 12, and Folate and can support healthy mood balance, sleep difficulties, and stress. 5-HTP acts as a precursor to serotonin, a key neurotransmitter involved in mental health while GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter often used to relax the mind in cases of stress and insomnia. 5-HTP can interact with antidepressants.
Saffron Matrix contains saffron, ashwagandha, and zinc bisglycinate and may help with supporting healthy mood balance, libido, and stress management. Ashwagandha balances cortisol and may help reduce stress. This supplement can be taken together with antidepressants.
