According to Wikipedia, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues, is a mood disorder in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter or, less frequently, in the summer, spring or autumn, repeatedly, year after year.
Exercise, eating well balanced meals, and staying active in social groups, can all help with the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Natural nutrition supplements, including St. John’s Wort and a high quality B-Complex source, have also produced some great results.
St. John’s Wort has been used for many years to help with mild depression. Results can be measured in a short time and so you can be the judge of whether it will work for you. As with all natural nutrition supplements, you have to choose a brand that you can trust the quality, safety, and efficacy because they are not regulated by any governing body – and so there can be a lot of ineffective products out there. St. John’s Wort can be combined with inositol that is found to be at lower levels in people with the ‘blues’. A 100% money back guarantee is also a great incentive to give it a try.
B-Complex is a water soluble vitamin that is best taken at different times of the day so it remains in the body to provide the desired benefits. Water soluble means that the body will excrete what it isn’t using at the time – it does not store this vitamin. High quality B-Complex (100% money back guaranteed) supplements have balanced amounts of all 8 essential B vitamins – they work best when they work together. There is science and research that tells the correct balance, and this is not found brand to brand. It is important to do one’s homework and find a source that is safe, effective, and has high quality ingredients in the right combinations (trust your brand that it will insure this for you).
