Sometimes our brains just won't shut off. We're thinking about what we did during the day, re-examining conversations with customers, family, friends. We're going over what we have to do tomorrow, the day after, and sometimes even farther out. We're meal prepping, to-do-list making, and stressing about things that haven't even happened yet (or even, are unlikely to happen).
When our minds do this before bed it makes it impossible to fall asleep quickly. You're tired, but your brain won't shut off. And you know tomorrow is going to be more difficult because you aren't going to get the 8 hours of sleep you were planning on.
Sleep has a huge impact on all aspects of our lives. So it's important for us to find ways to get more of it, but, as with so many of things in life, quality is actually more important. For many of us, getting more sleep isn't possible, but getting a better quality sleep is.
Instead of sleeping pills that can be addictive and/or lose effectiveness over time, supplements may be the answer to the question about how to get a better quality of sleep. And if it can help you calm the nerves throughout the day as well (without causing drowsiness), that would be a win-win.

Stress is different for everyone. The human brain is complex, and we all have different, complex lives, where different factors will cause one person more stress than another. Our past experiences dictate how things will affect us, and we are constantly gaining new experiences.
On a basic level, stress is anything that causes our bodies (including our brains) to be pushed out of balance.
Our ancestors' brains activated a fight or flight response when under external stress factors, such as a dangerous predator. But they led fairly basic lives where survival was their primary focus. For most of us today, we aren't coming face-to-face with bears or tigers. Our every day, external stress factors aren't typically life threatening.
So, while our brain still sends those same signals, the cause is not the same, so our bodies and brains react differently. Depending on what's causing us stress, it might not be quickly resolved, so we hold onto stress for longer periods of time. Our stress compounds and so it becomes even more difficult for us to manage our mental health.
A healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise (an increase in blood flow throughout the body), balanced nutrition, and quality sleep can help reduce stress or help us handle stressful situations. However, as our lives get busier, have more responsibilities, or see shifts in environment (personal and work related as well as physical spaces), we're not always able to maintain a regular schedule, be it physical activity, eating habits, or sleep. Stress management is one of the top issues people face every day.
Continued stress can cause low levels of serotonin production in our bodies, which is an important mood balance chemical in our brains. So we need to find ways to boost serotonin levels. As people's lives are busy and complex, finding solutions that fit within each person's lifestyle is important.
Substances such as caffeine, alcohol, nicotine can cause dips, especially when taken in excess. When we're tired or feel we need an energy boost, we often resort to caffeine. That energy boost from caffeine is actually increasing the same fight or flight response in our body. This is why many people start to feel anxious when they consume too much coffee or caffeine.
Low levels of serotonin can also be caused by changes in a person's hormones (PMS, menopause), extended periods of stress and anxiety, lack of sleep, and even exposure to phobias.
A person's genetics also affect the production and absorption of serotonin.
When serotonin levels are low our bodies are usually either not producing enough serotonin or are not using the serotonin we do produce effectively.
While there are a number of foods and activities that can help increase serotonin, it can be difficult to know how much of the foods we need to eat or how much sunlight, for example, we need. It can also be difficult to consume enough to increase serotonin.
How can you measure serotonin levels? Brain serotonin levels need to be measured by using deep brain stimulation carried our by neurosurgeons.

New MOOD® is a daily supplement that can help you manage mood. It can help with relaxation and promote natural serotonin production. As they say on their website it can help "turn down the noise of the chaos." It's essentially a supplement that can help improve your overall mental health.
New MOOD® is typically retails for $29.95 for 30 supplements, or $59.95 for 60 supplements. But TWG readers get a special discount of up to 30% off + FREE 14-day Sleep Smarter Plan ebook.
New MOOD® combines 5-HTP with L-tryptophan (an essential amino acid), two of the building blocks of serotonin. Serotonin levels are linked to mood, happiness, positivity, even digestion, bone health, our ability to learn, and our body's ability to heal wounds. So when serotonin levels are low we become out of balance and often experience higher levels of anxiety and depression. High levels of anxiety and depression have negative effects on all aspects of our lives. Therefore if we can increase serotonin levels we can bring a better balance to our daily lives.
New MOOD® is caffeine free, dairy free, gluten free, keto friendly, nut free, paleo, and soy free. So they can be taken regardless of your diet.
The key ingredients are 5-HTP, magnesium, Tryptophan, Vitamin B3, and Vitamin B6.
They also contain Onnit's Tranquility Blend:
More than just 5-HTP and Tryptophan, New MOOD® also contains Magnesium which is an important chemical that actually supports hundreds of functions within our bodies. Including helping maintain proper blood pressure levels. Vitamin B3 (Niacin) helps with synthesis of serotonins, while Vitamin B6 aids in the manufacturing of amino acids and neurotransmitters.
Possibly the best part of New MOOD® is that it isn't introducing artificial serotonin or working like an antidepressant (which don't increase serotonin levels, but are often selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, or monoamine oxidase inhibitors).
New MOOD® supports the body's natural serotonin production, so the negative side effects that are commonly associated with antidepressants are absent.
The idea behind New MOOD® is that when you improve one area of your life - be it sleep or calmness throughout the day - other areas of your life will also benefit. Purchasing New MOOD® is simple, order online for fast shipping - right to your door.
New MOOD® Instant is a drink mix that can help with feeling calm and relaxed, and supports natural serotonin production. Like the New Mood supplements they can be taken any time of day, and contain the same levels of Tryptophan, 5-HTP, Magnesium, and Vitamins B3 & B6.
They also contain Onnit's Tranquility Blend of chamomile, valerian root, lemon balm, and jujube seed.
They are caffeine free, gluten free, keto friendly, nut free, and soy free and come in 4 different flavors: Pineapple, Orange Guava, Mango, and Elderberry Lavender. A great option for anyone who doesn't like, or has a difficult time, swallowing pills.

"Finally getting good sleep. This product helps me get to sleep and stay asleep. I only take half the dose because that’s all I need to sleep and not wake up." - Eric L.
"Life Saver. I’ve literally tried so many things and so many antidepressants in my life. This is truly the first supplement that has ever made any difference for me.

New MOOD® is intended for adults 18 and over and is not recommended for children.
You can take New MOOD® any time of day. Whenever you feel most stressed or need to calm your busy mind. Most users report taking it before bed, but find the time of day that works best for you.
You can take 1 or 2 pills at a time. You shouldn't exceed 6 pills within a 24 hour period.
New MOOD® supplements will not make you drowsy, but instead help you feel calmer and more relaxed. This relaxation can help you fall asleep faster, but will not make you drowsy if taken during the day or while you're working. If you operate heavy machinery or have a high risk job and are concerned about the effects of New Mood, we suggest taking them at night, or testing how your body reacts to them on the weekends.
If you are on other medication, including sleeping pills, you should consult your doctor before taking New MOOD®.
Some people saw results immediately, but everyone's different. It could take up to two weeks before you notice any changes in mood and sleep. Also, if you are only taking 1 pill at a time and not feeling much of a change in mood, it's recommended to take 2 pills at a time.
New MOOD® aids in the body's production of serotonin, which has been linked to a person's mood, happiness, and positivity. However, New Mood is not certified to treat mood disorders such as depression. If you have been diagnosed with a mood disorder such as depression you should consult your doctor before taking New Mood. It is not advised to replace doctor-prescribed antidepressants with New Mood.
If you are on any medication for mood disorders, such as depression, you should talk to your doctor before taking New MOOD®. Certain supplements may affect how antidepressants function.
Serotonin plays an important role in our daily lives. We all face daily stresses that affect our mood, energy, and ability to sleep. Daily stress can lead to a serotonin deficiency, which in turn can make us less motivated to do things that would boost serotonin levels.
New MOOD® is healthy way to improve mood, reduce stress, and get a better sleep. Their blend of 5-HTP and the essential amino acid tryptophan naturally affects serotonin production. Along with Onnit's Tranquility Blend it is a safe and gentle way to calm the nerves and quiet the noise. Making it perfect for before bed, and safe to take any time during the day.
