With hormonal imbalances, it’s normal to experience mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia. For example, a decline in testosterone can bring on fatigue and depression. All is not lost, though, with magnesium.
Magnesium citrate promotes balance and control when it comes to stress hormones. The mineral is vital in creating serotonin—the key neurotransmitter responsible for relaxing the nervous system and improving mood.
Take a look at our line of natural mood, sleep, and relaxation supplements.
Let’s highlight a few TestWorx ingredients that help boost mental wellbeing:
Tongkat Ali: A study assessing stress hormone and mood state among adult men and women found that Tongkat Ali improved their stress profiles—specifically in increase in testosterone and decline in stress hormone/cortisol exposure.
Maca Root:Maca carries flavonoids—compounds that have antioxidant properties. Research has shown Maca’s potential in reducing anxiety and boosting mood.
Researchers believe low levels of DHEA are common among older adults. As DHEA is essential in producing estrogen and testosterone, studies suggest DHEA may be effective in treating depression in people who have low DHEA levels.
B Vitamin Complex
B12 and other B vitamins produce brain chemicals that affect mood and other functions. Studies conclude that supplementing your diet with B12 early enough may hinder the onset of depression and improve the effectiveness of antidepressants.
Vitamin B deficiency can negatively impact mental health in the following ways:
- Impaired memory function
- Cognitive impairment
So it definitely doesn’t help that one of the most common vitamin deficiencies as we get older is vitamin B12. As many as 20% of older adults have this deficiency, yet it’s often overlooked.
B Vitamin Complex supplements may help fill that deficiency gap. B Vitamin Complex comprises B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, and B12.
