Re: Unhappy? Are You Ready to Feel Great?!! The Mood Cure: Amino Acids and Their Incredible Impact on Moods
this is what i'm using lately:

it contains:

5-HTP
St. John's Wort
N-Acetyl-Tyrosine,
SAMe
Huperzine A
Folic Acid
Vitamin B12
Vitamin B6
Vitamin D3
Niacin
Selenium
Thiamin
caffeine

.
 Quoting: Wubbo Ockels


Sounds like a good formula overall.

Not sure caffeine would be neurotransmitter-friendly, but probably not too bad. I drink caffeine and still get great results from taking my aminos.

Also, I'm wondering how much of the active herbal ingredients such as 5-HTP it has in it:

"Proprietary Blends
Happy Pills Mood Complex
St. John's Wort (leaf and Flower)[std to .3% hypericin], Caffeine (as Anhydrous), 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan from Griffonia Simplicifolia seed extract), N-Acetyl-Tyrosine, SAMe (S-adenosyl-methionine), Huperzine A (whole herb)"

BTW... GREAT NAME for it! I saw a similar product called "Happy Camper" though I don't recall what was in that.
 Quoting: Present and Aware


yes i wondered that too..

I knew somebody would fall over the caffeine in it :) also the amount not mentioned, but i recall to have read somewhere one pill contains 100mg (same amount of 2 cups of coffee). It definitely gives you the right amount of energie and focus while working or exercising. Also you don't have that "rushed" feeling you normally would have drinking 2 or more cups of coffee. Probably due to the other ingredients in it.
R.I.P. for the real Wubbo Ockels. He was a true icon of my country, and a great front-fighter for sustainable energie/technology and humanism.

"Yes, we have hurdles, we have distractions, we have disasters, personally and world-wide, and we do have to work it all out ourselves. BUT, there is a most amazing experience awaiting us on the other end of the finish-line.
The idea being, once we can handle it all down here, then we can live and explore eternally, responsibly, because we know what not to do, and not be resentful about being responsible, so we don't start a polarity domino effect in the other realms of existence."

"The Fraction" of Life can be increased in value not so much by increasing your Numerator as by lessening your Denominator. Nay, unless my Algebra deceive me, Unity itself divided by Zero will give Infinity."

I guess it comes down to how you feel while taking it. I tolerate some forms of caffeine well, but not coffee. There must be something else in coffee that isn't good for me because I get really irritable on it. But, I can take tea, or pure caffeine like No-Doz, or a Monster Rehab drink and feel great. Perhaps I'm allergic to coffee, but not to caffeine.

Would be great if they listed the amounts on their label, because it's really good to know how much of each amino you're getting so you know you're getting a therapeutic dose and not some miniscule amount they threw in there just to put in on the ingredients list.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together in a thread. I think this is so very important for people to understand. I suffer from seasonal affective disorder pretty severely and the last few years I've tried to find ways to fight it besides taking anti-depressants. I am a fan of the GABA supplements, I actually need to get back on them again as I've felt my mood shift some recently as its getting colder and I can't spend as much time outside in the Sun (I have to also take massive amounts of vitamin D for health issues). I also like to take Kava Kava if I feel my anxiety getting up too high!

Again, thanks for the info!

Thanks for sharing your positive experience with GABA! GABA's amazing stuff. Really works to relax me fast, but makes me feel almost intoxicated so I have to be careful not to overdo it.

GABA also does wonders if I'm in the middle of a neurotransmitter meltdown where I feel really irritable and am hell on wheels (usually after eating badly the day before). I take one of those GABAs and I'm totally chilled.

Here's a GREAT interview/article that Dr. Mercola just put out today on Vitamin D and sun exposure:

No problem! Many people are starting to look for alternative methods to treat psychological disorders/imbalances. I have used many different balancing techniques and supplements to help cope with many of the environmental stressors around me that seem to bring my energy and mental psych down! Sunlight exposure is critical for vitamin D production in the body :) It is essential for calcium absorption and metabolic processes!!

 Quoting: MissionInvisible


You know, I never really "got" how important sunlight was until today after watching that Dr. Mercola interview. I figured I could get all my D from taking a liquid D-3 supplement and so didn't really need sunlight. It turns out, 9 additional steroids are created when you sunbathe. They only know a little bit about ONE... vitamin D... and have no idea about the other 9. GREAT point he makes. Perhaps it really IS important to get some sunshine! I, for one, spend much of my time indoors. I get very little D production from sunlight. But, I'm going to make an effort to get lots more next year when the sun angle is at least 50 degrees again (Dr. Mercola gives a link to a US Navy site for determining times when the angle of the sun is at 50% or more, which is the minimum angle required to get the D-production going).

Again, thank you. Good post.

Vitamin D kicks butt in all respects. To me, it's one of the top 5 supplements a person can take, if not in the top 3. I put Protandim up there, too, for how well it trigger's the body's antioxidant systems and basically resets the aging process back to when you were 18 years old (some say back to the oxidation rate of an infant).

<--- I work indoors as well. I try to walk outside in the afternoon after work to get some good rays :) I also use Earthing gear to make sure I stay grounded and protected from electromagnetic fields in my environment (TVs, computers, cell phones, ANY wireless). They can TOTALLY zap the energy right out of you, along with increasing the rate of oxidative stress on many levels.

The pineal gland senses electromagnetic fields as light, this then reduces melatonin (sleep hormone, along with very powerful antioxidant in the body). As fake light increases all around us we have to make sure to try and balance with as many good rays as we can. Also, grounding any static electricity that can be detrimental to the body.

I love talking about this stuff. I don't think people realize how emotions/mental state have have a VERY real effect on the human body.

Well OP I was enjoying learning something new here, I did not take the warning comments in a negative way, but you sure did!

Yes, I can see why you might need this stuff.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18681750


Glad you were learning something new. And, I was waiting for someone to post something ignorant like this. You see, aminos help balance you out from "false moods" created by neurotransmitter imbalances. They don't take away all your normal, natural feelings such as feeling annoyed when you realize you may be wasting your precious time trying to help those who just want to bitch and moan instead of actually reading what's been written and perhaps getting the book, contemplating it, and maybe even trying it out. I just don't like wasting my time. I have too much to do.

My posting this was a courtesy that I figured may help a few people. It wasn't to win a popularity contest or avoid disagreements. But when every post is negative and complaining then, damn straight, I'm going to point it out so the thread either gets back on a more positive track or I just let it be and move on to more important things.

Thanks for your comment. I was expecting it.

I always love the threads on GLP about natural health. Very useful area for study and experimentation.

Stay away from doctors - they'll kill you.

Learn to think for yourself and try things to see what works.

Do a lot of reading and investigation and spend some money on your health.

Hospitals are lethally dangerous places, you want to stay out of them no matter what, do whatever it takes to care for your health on your own without poisonous pharmaceutical drugs!

Prevention is the key.

 Quoting: Vision Thing


So so so true. I am pretty young, had health problems most of my life. I tried to do the right thing, always listened to my doctors...and it almost killed me. I was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder around the age of 23 and was basically disabled. I started to notice environmental triggers and now have gone the natural/holistic route to healing. I am a transformed person from what I was a few years ago.

I can not stress how important researching and educating yourself on natural remedies can become when the doctors seem to have no answers. Obviously it is dangerous to go into it without education and proper tools...but if you take the time and really try to learn about how the body works, you will be amazed at how natural remedies really can be key ingredients to changing your life and health.

I found that sun angle thing, thank you, that's very helpful. I wasn't aware about the 50% angle for Vitamin D production. In my part of the world the 50% sun angle seems to line up almost exactly with the beginning of spring to the end of summer. So I guess its too late to get any Vitamin D until next spring :D

I have often suspected that I have pyroluria.
But I don't buy the genetic defect explanation. I don't want to be geneticly defective. That's a defeating belief.
Rather I suspect parasites.
And intend to chase them out by megadosing SSKI.

That's awesome to hear. Congratulations on finding what works for you. Many people never do.

I take theanine from time to time. It helps create feelings of well-being. Do you have any good info on that you can share on theanine? I don't know a lot about it, but a nutritionist recommended it to me.

One thing I heard about it is that it increases the brain's (or brian's, for you GLPers) Alpha waves. This is why it's so relaxing I suppose, as most are living in Beta 99% of their day. And, Alpha is really good for tapping into greater mind power (as in the Silva Method, which teaches you to access the alpha state prior to visualizing).

Yeah, Dr. Mercola rocks. If you're not already on his list, definitely get on it at www.mercola.com.

I won't be seeing a 50 degree sun angle for quite sometime either. Then again, I'll have to check for where we visit family in Florida. Maybe it's different there.

Does the same to me so I try to take it no later than 9 p.m. Usually take 5-HTP at 3 p.m. and at 9 p.m. If I take it earlier, I'll be too relaxed to work. I take the tyrosine and DLPA in the a.m. and again around noon and those keep me feeling great through my work day.

Never noticed it impacting my appetite, but now that I think about it, it sure seems to. I am eating much less lately and I was wondering why my pants are getting loose around the waist.

I have been reading some good things about theanine. It is abundant in green tea and in black tea as well. So that may be a good reason to have a few cups a day.

Very interesting. I drink green or black tea every day for breakfast and lunch. Thanks for that tidbit.

Thanks to whoever pinned this.

I expect aminos will help a lot of folks here suffering with various mental and emotional challenges. To me, this has been nothing short of a miracle.

If nothing else GET THE BOOK. If you don't find it useful, I'll be very surprised. It's one of the most useful books I've come across and I'm a very avid reader.

People, all amino acids are present in (organic) food, but due to *mineral deficiencies* your body may be unable to synthesis them properly.

Before getting on some weird hormone or chemical, try to quadruple you intake of vegetables and make them all organic.

Also, magnesium citrate is a great way to make up for the typical magnesium deficiencies that EVERYONE has from not eating enough (organic) vegetables.

You should not need magnesium supplements of you are eating enough veggies, but it's a great way to bootstrap yourself.

Remember to get 30 minutes of sunlight on bare skin every day to keep up vitamin D levels.

Be careful when you self-treat.

I cannot take high dose Niacin....does the same thing to be as the phenylalanine.

My body just doesn't need this stuff.

I just had complete blood work done and that was the prettiest most perfect report someone could have. Nothing was out of kilter.

Know what you need not what you think you need.

Re-evaluate what you are already putting in your mouth like food colors and additives, aspartame, GMO and MSG.

Fully understand your allergies and sensitivites and how
things you put in your mouth can cause the symptoms of almost every known disease.

Fully understand any current medical condition you have, for example: thyroid malfunction and how tinkering around with "stuff" can complicate, irritate or worsen what you already have going on.

Fully understand the interactions of all this "stuff" with
any current medications you are now "putting in your mouth" and how all of this "stuff" interacts.

If you eliminate the "bad stuff and fake stuff and genetically altered frankenfoods" in your food and drinks
you could in effect eliminate the problems you think you have.

You are what you put in your mouth.

It is silly to try to fix a symptom with more "stuff" when you don't know how all of this is going to "mix".

You have to be your own detective and investigator.
Keep journals and notes on the things you put in your mouth.

Don't just jump up and run down to the store and buy up "stuff" cause you may be getting in over your head before you have fully checked everything out FIRST.

Oh Lord, I'm ready to close this thread. The comments are almost all negative and whining about "be careful"... "it doesn't work for me"... "it has this negative effect." Well, blah, blah, blah. Don't ANY of you READ???? My post said READ THE BOOK! It covers all of this already!

The book TOTALLY goes into FOOD and what to eat and what not to.

I'm done talking to a wall of people that can't even read and just want to spew what they think they "know" without looking at what's already been stated. I don't have time to rebut everything posted here when I've already said... READ THE BOOK. That's all. Read it. Covers EVERYTHING everyone here has brought up. ALL very good and valid points, but if you would just READ my post, you'll see that I'm not saying it's a "magic bullet" or that one should just go and "self-medicate" themselves without first educating themselves further. All I'm doing here is pointing people in the direction of a possible "cure" for what, for many, is completely debilitating.

You know what? If I had read this thread prior to getting the book, I NEVER would have gotten the book, much less tried taking aminos and would still be suffering. That's how NOT HELPFUL most of these comments here are, because they are mostly on the negative side, instead of looking at the many, many people helped by taking a simple amino acid. You could be depriving someone of the help they need because of some irrational fear over amino acids. To me, that's insane. Drugs are far, far worse, and over 40% of America is on some form of phychotropic drug at this point. Do you think that's better than taking aminos?

Yes, of course you should educate yourself first on potential side effects and contraindications. You should do that with any supplement. But, the book goes into that, and I stated all that in my OP.

See ya later. You geniuses can figure this out on your own I suppose. Done trying to help unless someone starts posting something positive here that is encouraging versus discouraging.

Not ONE positive comment. All complaints and warnings. I have to ask...

wtf

i concur with amino acids being the answer to depression; i tried everything vit d [helped a tiny bit]; st johns you name it; tried to eat raw diet; no wheat diet; etc etc etc. Nothing every worked; i was down all the time for no reason. I tried theanine with some other stuff; it works perfect; in fact better than smoking you know what.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 966396


That's awesome to hear. Congratulations on finding what works for you. Many people never do.

I take theanine from time to time. It helps create feelings of well-being. Do you have any good info on that you can share on theanine? I don't know a lot about it, but a nutritionist recommended it to me.

One thing I heard about it is that it increases the brain's (or brian's, for you GLPers) Alpha waves. This is why it's so relaxing I suppose, as most are living in Beta 99% of their day. And, Alpha is really good for tapping into greater mind power (as in the Silva Method, which teaches you to access the alpha state prior to visualizing).

I just know its an amino acid; heard about it here on GLP. I buy this stuff:

its pretty good stuff I must say. theanine by itself didnt do as much good as the theanin serene.
