Brain Mood is a nutritional formula advertised as potentially helpful in treating symptoms related to loss of brain symmetry and loss of serotonin. The symptom area in which the formula is effective include headaches, shortness of breath, sleep disorders, insomnia, PMS, and phobias.
Although the manufacturer does not explain the mechanism of action, a close look at the ingredients may explain how the formula works. Particularly, Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B 5) and Niacin (Vitamin B3) all play important roles in Serotonin secretion.
The supplement is produced by Total Health Nutrients, a company founded in the early 1990 and activating in the nutritional supplements industry. The company manufactures their products in GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) certified facilities and claims to use top-quality substances to ensure full potency.
The formula is suitable for people suffering from brain related issues. The manufacturer makes no further specifications about the targeted age segment of individuals which their formula is supposed to help.
Brain Mood Ingredients
Brain Mood contains the following ingredients: Thiamin (thiamin HCl), Niacinamide, Folic Acid, Vitamin B-12, Pantothenic Acid, 5-Hydroxytryptophan, and St. John’s Wort (0.3% hypericin).
Brain Mood formula is a blend of vitamins, amino-acids and herbal ingredients. According to the manufacturer, the formula counteracts the side effects of serotonin loss. Serotonin is one of the most important neurotransmitter inhibitors in the brain, involved in emotion and mood control.
The B-complex vitamins contained by the formula, particularly Vitamin B1, B3 and B5, have been scientifically linked to serotonin production. These vitamins usually coexist in the same foods and their benefits are reciprocally influenced. The B vitamins are believed to be essential for a healthy immune and nervous system, cell growth and division and are an important factor in reducing pancreatic cancer.
Brain Mood combines the benefits of B vitamins with those of the amino acid 5-Hydroxytryptophan used in dietary supplements for its antidepressants qualities and as a sleep aid. St. John’s Wort is an herbal extract also used to primarily treat depression symptoms. The most common side effects include dizziness, dry mouth, headache, stomach upset and irritability.
However, the whole formula has not been proven effective through clinical trials, nor could we identify any reviews from consumers to support the claimed benefits. The recommended dose is 1-2 capsules daily before meals or at bedtime.
