Ingredient Summary: BioCeuticals MoodBalance

Crocus sativus (saffron)

In clinical trials, the administration of a standardised saffron extract supported healthy mood to a greater degree than placebo or alternative treatment in a variety of cohorts. A standardised saffron extract administered at 28mg/day significantly impacted mood and decreased somatisation compared with placebo, with no differences in reported adverse events compared with traditional treatment.[1,2] These findings were recently confirmed in a systematic review of herbal medicines which concluded that the weight of evidence was in favour of saffron for supporting a healthy mood.[3]

Animal models suggest that compounds found in saffron increase levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).[4]

BioCeuticals MoodBalance contains affron®, a clinically trialled saffron extract standardised to >3.5% Lepticrosalides®, which includes the bioactive compounds safranal and crocin.

Probiotics

The combination of L. helveticus R0052 and B. longum R0175 has been shown in clinical trials to reduce the stress-related gastrointestinal symptoms of nausea and abdominal pain at a dose of 3 billion CFU per day.[5,6]

Additional support from B vitamins and zinc

Vitamin B6 is required to assist in neurotransmitter synthesis, including serotonin, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and dopamine.[7] Folate and B12 are essential cofactors in helping the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine which is then synthesised into S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), one of the important roles of which is in the metabolism of neurotransmitters including serotonin.7 Reduced levels of vitamins B6, B12 and folate have been shown to impact mood.[7]

Zinc supports healthy neurotransmitter system activity and nervous system function, as well as supporting normal immune system function.[8,9]

Warnings: BioCeuticals MoodBalance

If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner.
