CanPrev’s Healthy Mood is formulated with saffron, GABA, 5-HTP, active B vitamins, magnesium and zinc to promote healthy mood management, from regulating neurotransmitters and the stress response, to nerve and brain function. It can also help reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches when taken as a preventative and aids in immune system support.
Saffron has been used for thousands of years both medicinally and in the kitchen. It is sourced from the stigmata of the Crocus sativus plant, traditionally, used for several ailments ranging from blood sugar issues, promoting healthy mood balance, cardiovascular health, libido and vision. Bright red in nature it contains several highly regarded antioxidants including lycopene and zeaxanthin.
GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that promotes sleep and encourages relaxation. Low GABA activity is linked to insomnia and disrupted sleep. In one study, GABA levels in people with insomnia were almost 30% lower than in people without the sleep disorder.
L-5-HTP is a compound made in the body from the amino acid, tryptophan, that you get from eating protein-rich foods. Once in the 5-HTP state, it goes on to form serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and behaviour, and then further is metabolized into melatonin. Sourced from the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia seed, CanPrev’s Healthy Mood formula includes vitamin B6 and magnesium to improve the body’s conversion and utilization of 5-HTP.
B Vitamins (B6, B12, Folate) are key factors in maintaining healthy mood and stress response. They are essential in nerve transmission, cellular metabolism, and breaking down fats and carbohydrates into usable forms of energy for the body and brain.
B6 (P-5-P) enhances the activity of the immune system and improves the body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions. It is also an important cofactor for a large number of enzyme pathways in the adrenal glands. When taken with magnesium, B6 has been shown to reduce symptoms such as nervous tension, mood swings and irritability. Aids in the production of dopamine in the hypothalamus.
B12 (Methylcobalamin) and B9 (folate) deficiency have been linked to changes in mood.
Magnesium Bis-Glycinate supports neurological functions including cellular energy production, regulating neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), regulating ion gradients, and neuronal excitability. Dysregulation of these systems plays an important role in the etiology of both mood imbalances and anxiety.
Zinc Bis-Glycinate is critical to the immune system and detoxification processes. Zinc containing neurons regulate the brain and body’s response to stress and is necessary for neurotransmitter production and brain function.
