Onnit’s New Mood is an intelligently designed supplement, which has the potential to bring about reductions in stress, anxiety and may aid with sleep disorders. Onnit’s New Mood seeks to utilise serotonin, a key neurotransmitter that our body produces, that is associated with happiness and a more positive outlook. To this end, it contains L-tryptophan and 5-HTP – scientifically proven to be two crucial building blocks that our body uses to construct serotonin, alongside a plethora of other vitamins and minerals that are linked to decreases in restlessness and decreases in anxiety.
Serotonin is widely believed to have a large impact on our mood, however, it cannot simply be taken as a supplement, because serotonin is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier. Thus, the best way to encourage serotonin production in our body is to provide it with the natural building blocks that it uses to create it, which is precisely what Onnit’s New Mood does.
The potential benefits of an improvement in mood are clear – happier people are more productive at work, generally have better social lives and tend to form longer and more lasting relationships. While many studies appear to show that long-term increased levels of stress are associated with an increase in fatal health complications such as heart problems, diabetes and many, many more. This strongly suggests that happier people are likely to live longer and more fulfilling lives. Onnit’s New Mood has the potential to improve your mood and help you to relax – potentially leading to a happier, longer and more fulfilling life.
Onnit’s New Mood works as an individual supplement, although many people find that they get the best results, when they use it as a part of Onnit’s Total Human Complete Supplement Pack – an intelligent blend of the nutrients that you need that are delivered when you need them. New Mood comes within the Night Pack of Onnit’s Total Human Complete Supplement Pack – helping to relax and destress your body as you sleep. Whichever way you choose to take it, don’t miss out on all the potential benefits that Onnit’s New Mood offers.
The Ingredients of New Mood
Onnit’s New Mood is an intelligent blend of naturally occurring herbs, vitamins and minerals that have the potential to help you sleep and reduce anxiety. Many of the ingredients of New Mood have been valued for their medicinal properties for years and are the subject of current scientific research due to their potential destressing effects. All of this and more makes New Mood an excellent choice as a standalone supplement, although many people find improved results when they use it as a part of Onnit’s Total Human Complete Supplement Packs, an intelligent blend of nutrients that give your body what it needs when it needs it.
Valerian Root Extract – Valerian is a plant that is native to Europe and parts of Asia, which has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. The Ancient Greeks used it as a cure for restlessness and certain studies have found that some people sleep better – when valerian is used compared to a placebo (NIH, 2018). There is also limited evidence that suggests that valerian has the potential to reduce anxiety when compared to a placebo (Andreatini, 2002). Onnit’s New Mood contains a healthy dose of Valerian – offering those who take it the chance to enjoy its potential benefits.
Chamomile Flower Extract – Chamomile is another herb that has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. More recent studies suggest that it has the potential to reduce blood sugar, aid sleep disorders and reduce anxiety (Srivastava, 2010) – although much more research needs to be done, before the benefits of chamomile are proven or disproven. Onnit’s New Mood contains this ancient herb, ensuring that its takers can enjoy its many potential benefits.
Lemon Balm Leaf Extract – Lemon balm is a herb from the mint family that is found in southern Europe and the Mediterranean. Research suggests that it may help in the maintenance of a positive mood (Kennedy, Attenuation of laboratory-induced stress in humans after acute administration of Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm)., 2004) and may also help in stress reduction (Kennedy, Attenuation of laboratory-induced stress in humans after acute administration of Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm)., 2004). Onnit’s New Mood contains lemon balm, offering anyone who takes it the chance to benefit from its potentially soothing and destressing effects.
Jujube Seed Extract – Jujube is a kind of fruit that is native to China, which has become prized across the globe due to its purported health benefits. It is believed to help alleviate insomnia (Li, 2007) and also has the potential to reduce anxiety and destress the body. Onnit’s New Mood contains jujube – offering you the chance to benefit from its potential destressing features.
Vitamin B-3 (Niacin) – Niacin is a water-soluble B vitamin that allows our bodies to turn food into energy. Research also suggests that it helps us maintain nervous system, digestive system and skin health (Sauve, 2008). Onnit’s New Mood contains a healthy dose of niacin, allowing your body to utilise this crucial vitamin.
Vitamin B-6 – Vitamin B6 is one of our body’s most used vitamins and is believed to be involved in more than 100 different enzyme reactions. Most of these reactions are related to the synthesis of protein (National Insitute of Dietary Supplements , 2018) – ensuring that it is a vital part of a healthy diet. Onnit’s New Mood contains healthy amounts of Vitamin B6 – allowing you to gain from the many benefits that it bestows.
Magnesium – Magnesium is essential for hundreds of bodily functions and research suggests that it – supports heart health, helps maintain blood pressure levels, aids bone health and has the potential to relieve stress and anxiety. Onnit’s New Mood contains this vital element, ensuring that your body can enjoy its many benefits.
Tryptophan – L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which is believed to be one of the building blocks for 5-HTP – the direct precursor of serotonin, the chemical which many scientists believe engenders feelings of happiness. Tryptophan is also believed to help our bodies convert melatonin – helping to reduce insomnia and restlessness.
5-HTP – 5-HTP is one of the building blocks for serotonin (Bogdanski, 1958), giving it the potential to dramatically improve your mood. Onnit’s New Mood contains this vital building block – allowing you to enjoy the many benefits that it offers.
Relevant Research into New Mood’s Ingredients
5-HTP – A recent study into 5-HTP showed an improvement in mood equal to standard of care in a double-blind trial (Jangid, 2013).
5-HTP – 5-HTP was shown to easily cross the blood-brain barrier and increase our central nervous system’s ability to synthesise serotonin in a recent study (Birdsall, 1998).
5-HTP – 5-HTP was shown to support a healthy mood balance when compared to a placebo in 69% of subjects in a two-week-long double-blind trial (Sano, 1973)
Valerian and Lemon Balm – Were shown to have the potential to reduce laboratory induced stress in a recent double-blind trial (Kennedy, Anxiolytic effects of a combination of Melissa officinalis and Valeriana officinalis during laboratory induced stress, 2006)
