Spring is upon us. It is a time for new beginnings…new starts….The air is clean, life is once again being infused into our surroundings as the flowers, tress, and plants come out of hibernation. So why are we not HAPPY…full of joy and energy?
According to the American Psychological Association (APA), a 2011 study showed most Americans suffer from moderate to high stress and 44% have seen an increase over the past five years. In 2009, US News said, “Americans are 10 times as likely to have depression or a mood disorder today as they were 60 years ago.” As these two studies show, the increase in stress has led to an increase in mood disorders. “Who’s not stressed? That’s just life. Life is stress,” says Kathleen Hall, Founder of the Stress Institute in Atlanta. The APA says one reason for the increase in stress is that self-care isn’t a priority. “Only 40% of Americans rate their health as very good or excellent….Instead of managing stress in healthy ways, Americans are indulging in unhealthy behaviors.” Is there a natural and healthy way to improve mood and increase energy levels?
The answer is YES! You can naturally improve your mood and increase energy by putting the right types of nutrients into your body. In addition to a healthy diet, adding advanced nutritional products to your daily regimen can begin to positively impact the genetic code in your body to deliver energy, mental focus, vigor, harmony, and health.
Here are some key compounds that the experts agree play a vital role in your mood, mental clarity, and energy.
- Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) – Coenzyme Q10 is a key player in energy production. A study published in the journal, Neuro Endocrinology Letters reported that “patients with depression and patients with chronic fatigue syndrome appeared to have lower levels of Coenzyme Q10 in their bloodstreams,” says Cindy Ell of LiveStrong.com.
- Ginseng – According to a study done by the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, N.Y., Ginseng may reduce fatigue and increase overall psychological well-being.
- Vitamin C – Marie Claire shares, “A German study in Psychopharmacology found that vitamin C helps reduce stress and return blood pressure and cortisol to normal levels.”
- Green Tea – A study from the University of San Francisco shows polyphenols in Green Tea boost availability of dopamine. Dopamine signals brain circuits that are needed for positive mood.
- Quercetin – University of South Carolina completed a study showing that aerobic capacity and general exercise endurance was increased after taking Quercetin. By drinking HAVVN GO, you will have the needed Quercetin to exercise longer and feel better afterwards.
- B-12 & B-6 Vitamins – May Clinic psychiatrist Daniel K. Hall-Flavin, MD says, “Vitamins B-12 and B-6 play a role in producing brain chemicals that affect mood and other brain functions. Low levels of Vitamin B-12 and B-6 may be linked to depression.” Dr. Hall-Flavin also discussed how the lack of these vitamins can cause some depression.
- Vitamin D – According to the Vitamin D Council, a non-profit organization, Vitamin D lowers the risk of depression by reducing the production of cytokines. Cytokines are proteins that increase inflammation and have been shown to be a possible risk factor for depression.
Lack of energy and poor mood is not destiny. With the proper nutrition you can begin to extend youthful vigor from the inside out.
