Mood Supplements:
A Comprehensive Guide

Our top mood supplements and practical tips. 

I. Introduction

Why mood supplements? Mental health issues like anxiety and depression are on the rise. Over 20% of US adults suffer from mental illness, and many more have untreated symptoms. 92% of Americans have at least one micronutrient deficiency, with shortfalls in vitamins B6, B12, and folate strongly linked to depression. From 2009-2022, there has been a 58% increase in the prevalence of depression and a 47% increase in prevalence of anxiety. Let's explore what mood supplements can fill this gap.

II. Mood Supplements: Effective?

Some evidence shows supplements like ashwagandha and lemon balm can temporarily ease anxious feelings or depressive moods. However, these compounds fail to resolve the underlying nutrient shortfalls that may be fueling many mood issues to begin with. Deficiencies in key micronutrients - especially B vitamins and amino acids - are vast in modern societies, affecting about 90% of the population. Unfortunately, these plant-based mood supplements won’t be an effective long term solution.

So if plant-based mood supplements aren’t the answer, what is?

First, let’s talk about neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters help to regulate mood and cognition. They depend on specific micrnutrients to function properly.  The most important micronutrients in this process are B vitamins like thiamine, niacin, vitamin B12, folic acid, and pantothenic acid and amino acids like tryptophan, tyrosine, and glutamine are also crucial.

IV. How We Can Improve Mood Supplements

A truly optimal approach considers an individual's foundational health based on real, whole food nutrition rather than synthetic or isolated nutrients. Supplements from whole food ingredients provide a broad spectrum of micronutrients that work synergistically to nourish the body and brain. In addition, we cannot neglect the gut-brain connection. We need to also support structural gut health.

V. Mood Supplement Safety

When it comes to supplement safety, quality ingredients are everything. We strongly advise choosing products made purely from whole foods, with no synthetic chemicals or processed additives. It is advisable to avoid supplements full of unpronounceable fillers or “proprietary blends” that hide processing. Quality brands use simple, transparent ingredients and gelatin or tapioca capsules.

VI. Best Supplements for Mood

So, what supplements actually contain both B vitamins and amino acids and can support the structual health of gut lining? The answer is; beef organ and bone & bone marrow supplements. Throughout history and even as close as your grandparents, we ate nose-to-tail, meaning, we ate the entire animal. Organ meats and bones are the only source supplying the complete micronutrient profile we just outlined, and we suggest the following supplement routine to start to address the root cause:

a. Humanimal Beef Organs
