Mood boosting tips and tricks

Hey Team Amino Men and Women. The autumn is upon us. 

This time of year I always remind myself and clients about immune-boosting habits and protocols. These are as important as ever in these tricky times. 

I also have suffered from SAD over the years, so I really try and pop a few habits in place to prevent this.  

Here are my top tips:

Keeping happy is a No.1 Priority! I love using light boxes when it starts getting really dark (when clocks go back) I also start on Vitamin D right about now. 

Omegas are an ongoing daily for me, 2 for maintenance and up to 6 if I'm injured or severely inflamed. 

You'll see 5HTP in a few products for serotonin, R5 Aminos, Amber Aminos - Dark chocolate has proven mood-boosting effects, a homemade hot chocolate before morning workouts can be a real blood flow booster on a cold day. 

Sleep quality is essential to mood state. A heavy blanket is a clinically proven and also really snug way for deep, restorative, restful sleep = bliss. 

Focus Sustain gives the neural system a welcome morning boost too with several brain supporting herbs, b-vitamins and mitochondrial helpers all in there. Keep an eye out for our new booster packs coming soon, these will contain Co Q 10, PQQ, b-vitamins and huperzine A...snowdrop extract....more to follow soon.
