Mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression, are multifaceted conditions with many possible contributing factors. To support recovery, you need the right nutrients to balance your body and brain chemistry.
Effective brain function relies on a balanced number of different neurotransmitters firing in the appropriate areas of your brain. When this balance is disturbed, mood disorders and mental health conditions may be present.
To build neurotransmitters, your body needs amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Anxiety, depression, ADHD, schizophrenia and autism have shown improvement with effective mineral therapy.
Key imbalances that affect mental health are:
- Amino acid imbalances
- Vitamin B6 deficiency
- Zinc deficiency/copper overload – see my analytical review
- Methylation cycle issues
- Pyrrole disorder/oxidative stress
Each of these imbalances relates directly to production of one or more major neurotransmitters.
For instance, your brain needs vitamin B6 to synthesise the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and GABA. Deficiencies of these neurotransmitters are associated with many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, poor memory, OCD, brain fog and psychosis.
If you suffer from mood disorders, you may achieve positive results by normalising levels of vitamin B6 and its activated form, known as P5P, in the brain. Studies show that nutrient therapy alone can resolve some mood disorders, without treatment using SSRI antidepressants or other psychoactive drugs.
A carefully tailored nutrient therapy program can yield exceptional results, helping to balance your brain chemistry and restore it to normal operation.
