Supplements that support a positive mood?
« on: September 20, 2018, 08:16:58 AM »
Does anyone here take supplements for supporting a positive mood?  I know genuine depression is a very real thing that often requires prescription medication, but that's not where I'm at.  I'm talking about just needing a slight improvement.  My doctor recommended that I try St. John's Wort, but it upsets my stomach.  Is there anything else that works for you all?

David, a natural pill, like that, sounds good to me.  Are you taking it with food? 
My pill was knitting.  I sat and rocked and knitted like a crazy woman.  Someone told me it was the rhythmic of the needles that eased my mind.  Good luck David..  if that does not work, try another!

Just read the label and you're right, taking it with food is one of the suggestions. I'm not usually a breakfast eater, but I guess I'll start having a piece of toast to go with my coffee.  I could never knit.  I'm way too clumsy to pull something like that off.  Do you still knit or have you found another outlet?

I donít take any for mood David as like you things cause me indigestion. Even though they are herbal they can still cause issues with some people. I do take a multivitamin.  Do you take them?  Deficiency in some vitamins can cause low mood.


 I got very bad about a year ago with depression,  worthlessness as well as hopelessness,  I had counselling I didnít help me if Iím honest, but what works for me is cycling every day and a coffee in my local coffee shop en route. If it werenít for that I would be quite bad.  I never felt like this prior to all the grieve I went through.

David, I would try to take the St. John's Wort with food first to see if that helps. If you still have indigestion, I would ask your doctor about other mood-enhancing supplements, like SAMe, B vitamins, and vitamin D. Lavender can be used as an essential oil to help boost mood, too.

Like MaryB, I find knitting very soothing. I think it does have to do with the repetitive, rhythmic motion.

Guineagirl, I'm glad you've found something that makes you feel better.  I do take a multiple vitamin, mainly because my parents always gave them to us and the habit stuck.  I'm not interested in exercise.  Well, I know I should exercise some, but I have a tough job and when I get home I'm all about books and television.  In other words, I'm just too darn lazy.  Biking sounds like it could be fun though.  How long have you been doing that?  I've lost people close to me and grief fades with time.  I hope it works that way for you too.  You sound like such a lovely person.

Hi David,


Aww you are kind, and to be honest your wife is very lucky, not many men are so thoughtful. Mine well heís a caveman, he says he isnít but mmm I disagree.  Me and my daughter gang up on him something rotten lol all in good fun, I miss that. 


 I understand the tired thing after work very much and we all relax in our own chosen way donít we and doing it if you were shattered would be counter productive anyway.


 Iíve cycled all my life especially since 2010 for my health.   I love old railway tracks and go on cycle routes a lot but day to day itís to and fro chores It just saves me the time I would have to find going to a gym so I just fit it in here and there. Plus Iíve made friends in the coffee shop with a few people who I chat to.x

I grew up in a houseful of sisters, then it was my wife and daughter - they all claim to have taught me how to behave like a gentleman.  Truthfully, I'm better at expressing my feelings online to strangers than I am directly with the people who are right in front of me.  I hope that makes sense.

I understand the keyboard thing as eye contact sometimes people arenít comfy with.  My husband has four brothers so I reckon that has something to do with it plus I should of knocked him into shape years ago :(

You know what's been a game changer for me? Magnesium supplements. Magnesium helps with all sorts of things, including depression. It might be something worth looking into!
