Mood Plus is a multi-faceted formula designed to safely enhance mood and cognition. It combines several known mood-enhancing nutrients and botanicals, such as L-tyrosine and 5-HTP, with other key ingredients, including Rhodiola, Eleutherococcus, and PharmaGABA, to promote healthy neurotransmitter and adrenal function.
Mood Plus is "Hypericum free." Hypericum (St. John's wort) is a known inducer of cytochrome p450 3A4 (CYP3A4) and thus can reduce blood levels of medications that are metabolized via this enzyme. Because it does not contain Hypericum, Mood Plus is suitable for patients who are taking medications that are metabolized by CYP3A4.
Low serum and red blood cell concentrations of vitamin B12 and folate can have an adverse effect on mood. Vitamin B12 supports healthy neurological function and red blood cell formation, two factors that can enhance overall mood and stress management. Mood Plus contains 5-MTHF, the active form of folate.
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is a well-known adaptogen and is included in Mood Plus to provide general adrenal support. Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter that balances excessive excitatory responses in the brain, is included to help allay stress and support a calm state of mind. GABA is provided as the patented, all natural-source PharmaGABA. Mood Plus is safe and effective for mood enhancement and a valuable addition to any stress management plan.
