- Turmeric may help to tackle low mood.
- There is upcoming research suggesting holy basil leaf can be useful for those who suffer with stress and anxiety issues.

What the Nutritionist says
Did you know that some foods are naturally rich in melatonin, the hormone which helps regulate your sleep? Cherries for example are naturally rich in melatonin.
How It Helps
In a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial, 80 patients were supplemented with lemon balm or placebo for 8 weeks to determine the effects of lemon balm on anxiety, stress and sleep distrubances. At the end of the study, the intervention group receiving lemon balm capsules had a significant reduction in scores of depression, anxiety, stress, and total sleep disturbance, compared with the placebo group.
5-HTP is well absorbed from an oral dose, with about 70 percent ending up in the bloodstream. It easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and effectively increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. L-theanine, on the other hand, was shown to ameliorate symptoms of anxiety, sleep disturbance and cognitive impairments in patients with depressive disorder.
A meta analysis of 6 clinical trials shows that taking curcumin moderately improves mood in subjects with chronic low mood. The mechanism is not yet fully understood, but recent studies have shown that high inflammation can be associated is lower mood, and turmeric has been found to be a potent anti inflammatory compound so it may help due to this aspect.
35 subjects were given 500mg of holy basil leaf daily showed that they had significantly lowered feelings of stress and anxiety.
Nearly 50% of older adults have insomnia, with difficulty in getting to sleep, early awakening, or feeling unrefreshed on waking. A double-blind randomized clinical trial was conducted in 46 subjects showed that magnesium supplementation significantly improved sleep time, early sleep onset and serum melatonin levels.
