Mood BalanceMood Balance combines the same vitamins, minerals, and amino acids as first generation Mood Support. Modification in quantities of ingredients, plus the addition of Suntheanine'9, vitamin C, and selenium, further enhance synthesis of chemical messengers that support calmness, a healthy mood, and a healthy nervous system.*

Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients are necessary for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, healthy nerve transmission, healthy brain chemistry, and normal muscle contraction/relaxation. Components of Mood Balance address each of these areas.*
Methylation is the addition of a methyl group (a carbon atom with three hydrogen atoms attached) to proteins, enzymes, chemicals, DNA, or amino acids like homocysteine. It is a vital aspect of nervous system health and is necessary for the synthesis of neurotransmitters. Mood Balance provides key nutrients involved in the methylation pathway, such as selenomethionine; vitamin B6 as pyridoxal 5'-phosphate; vitamin 812 as the readily bioavailable form, methylcobalamin; and folate as bioactive Quatrefolic" (5-MTHF glucosarnine salt) and calcium folinate.111 Pyridoxine nutritional status selectively modulates central production of serotonin and GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid)-neurotransmitters that are involved in physical pain perception and mental wellness.*121
Magnesium is provided as Albion• TRAACS- glycinate chelate, a specific form demonstrated to support intraneuronal magnesium sufficiency.131 As a cofactor for over 325 enzymes in the body, magnesium has a multitude of actions, including a calming effect on the nervous system and regulation of muscle contraction. Laboratory, animal, and epidemiological research suggests a link between magnesium sufficiency and a healthy mood and calm demeanor. *14.51
Vitamin C participates in the enzyme activity of two copper-dependent monooxygenases that are important in the synthesis of norepinephrine and serotonin. In addition, vitamin C regulates the activity of some neurons within the brain that affect neurotransmitter membrane receptor synthesis and neurotransmitter dynamics.*(61
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an important inhibitory neurotransmitter found in 30% to 40"/4 of the brain synapses. It helps calm the brain by neutralizing the excitatory effects of glutamate. Research suggests that GABA supplementation or optimal GABA function in the brain positively affects neurological health, the body's response to stress, mood, alpha and beta brain waves, and sleep.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a precursor to serotonin. It is well-absorbed in the intestine and easily crosses the bloodbrain barrier.1101 Serotonin regulates many normal brain activities; influences other neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine and dopamine; and is important in regulating mood and behavior, including food cravings. Research suggests that adequate levels of 5-HTP instill a sense of calmness and relaxation.*1111
L-Taurine is a conditionally essential, neuroprotective amino acid that helps maintain cell volume and stabilize cell membranes in the brain. In addition to its roles in antioxidant activity and inflammatory cytokine modulation, taurine is important in the transmission of nerve impulses and overall nerve function. Oral supplementation increases GABA. *1121
L-Theanine (SuntheaninelD) is a naturally occurring, biologically active, free-form amino acid that provides relaxation support. Mechanisms of action appear to relate to its effects on neurotransmitters, excitatory amino acids activity, and alpha brain wave activity_l13-1SJ Many practitioners utilize L-theanine to support overall relaxation without inducing drowsiness.*
