Natural Mood Enhancers: Lemon Balm & L-Theanine

Do you know that mood swings can lead to weight gain? Stress, anxiety and crankiness can result in cravings and overeating.

Lemon balm and l-theanine are natural remedies recommended by Dr Oz for regulating moods.

Lemon Balm For Crankiness
Crankiness is often caused by over tiredness. Lemon balm can be used for reducing anxiety and improving sleep, due to its mild sedative effect. You can take lemon balm in capsule or liquid form.
Recommended Dosage: Liquid extract: 2 ml, 3 times a day.  Capsules: 300-500 mg, 3 times a day.

L-Theanine For Stress
Stress is commonly associated with belly fat. It causes the secretion of stress hormones such as cortisol that promote fat storage in the mid-section. L-theanine is an amino acid found in tea leaves, especially green tea. It has a calming and relaxing effect, so can be helpful in relieving stress and anxiety. If you don’t like drinking tea, you can take L-theanine in supplement form.
Recommended dosage: 200 mg a day.
