MoodPlus Vitamins for Depression
Enhanced Neurological and Nervous System Support

Recommended for mood support, sleep disturbances, poor libido and to maintain a healthy level of stress.
MoodPlus™ features a carefully formulated combination of nutrients that function as neurotransmitters to support the overall nervous system and promote a healthy mood. Magnesium is important for vital cellular functions including cell proliferation and signal transduction. 5-HTP, SAM-e and DMAE are included for their important role in serotonin synthesis. 5-HTP and GABA have shown in research studies to enhance endorphin levels and result in a mood lightening effect as well as calming effect.

MoodPlus™ includes 5-HTP which is a drug free amino acid derived from a plant that naturally increases the body's level of serotonin, the chemical messenger that affects emotions, behavior, appetite and sleep. Today's stress-filled lifestyles and diet regimens may negatively affect how the body handles serotonin.

What is D-Chiro-Inositol?


DCI is what is known as a secondary messenger in the insulin signaling process and is considered an insulin sensitizer. When you eat food, sugar is extracted and goes into your blood. Your pancreas releases insulin in response to the sugar. The insulin tells the cells of your body to either burn the sugar for energy or to store it as fat for later. As the sugar level goes down, the insulin level goes down as well. Insulin doesn't communicate directly with the cells, however. It communicates through a secondary messenger made out of DCI.

Another important thing that happens to women when there is insulin in your blood: the ovaries release testosterone in response to the insulin. This is natural. As the sugar is disposed of, the insulin level goes down and the ovaries stop releasing testosterone.

DCI is not abundant in diet. It is scarce in foods, so your body must make it from myo-inositol, which is abundant in many foods. But, the transformation is a complicated process with many steps that some people are not able to do very well. As a result, they don't have enough DCI and the sugar doesn't get disposed of quickly.

If you don't have enough DCI, the insulin level stays high, which means that the ovaries keep producing testosterone. This high level of testosterone is the origin of many of the signs and symptoms of PCOS—anovulation (not ovulating), irregular or absent periods, ovarian cysts, unwanted body hair, hair loss, belly fat, acne, infertility, etc.
