Have you ever met someone that always seems to be in a good mood? Have you ever wondered how they could possibly be so happy all the time?
It all comes down to brain chemistry. There are chemicals in the brain, called neurotransmitters, that regulate how we feel. We know that certain neurotransmitters, like serotonin, dopamine, and GABA all affect our mood.
Sometimes the levels of these neurotransmitters get so out of whack that it causes severe depression. Major depressive disorder is a common illness in the United States. It affects 14.8 million Americans. And 13 percent of American adults are taking at least one prescription anti-depressant.
But what if you are not clinically depressed, but are looking for a non-prescription mood-boosting supplement? Well then, you’re in the right place. We are going to look at the best nootropics for mood.
