THESE SUPPLEMENTS ARE GUARANTEED TO IMPROVE YOUR MOOD
Here's some good news, though—there are tons of ways you can heal your mind, be it meditation, exercising, or even adding vitamins to your diet. Sah D’Simone— a transformational coach and meditation teacher, who is also a certified mental health expert—agrees vitamins can impact your mood and behavior. “We could all use a little extra nourishment, especially as we deepen our knowledge of mind-body medicine,” says D’Simone.
We’re not saying these supplements are the cure to all your mental health problems (please check with your doctor first!), but adding them as part of a routine could help your mind and body feel a little better. Here’s how:
You may have side-eyed holy basil at your local health food store without realizing it, but D’Simone insists that taking it daily can help those who are having sleep troubles. "Holy basil’s adaptogenic properties help reduce the effects of stress, which also could decipher how well you sleep," says D’Simone. Less stress, more sleep? Now that's a win.
According to D’Simone, two-fifths of the population have this vitamin deficiency—and that deficiency could be linked to anxiety. "Taking vitamin B-12 daily could help reduce these anxieties because it interrupts your body’s natural desire to go into fight or flight mode when an issue arises," says D’Simone. It can ease some of these hypnotic thought patterns of survival, helping you become less reactive to trivial matters—like if someone accidentally pushes you on the subway, or spills coffee on you.
