Mood changes w/ certain supplements

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone notice certain mood swings or changes in their behavior after taking certain vitamins etc? For me personally i've been on a new regimen of vitamins and I think it is making me irritable lol. Could it be zinc? I'm taking zinc, multi, probiotics, dig. enzymes, vit e, gugulipid, b-complex, ala, echincea(sometimes) & liver health vitamin. I'm thinking about adding vit c maybe although the ala pills have c ester in them. I've def noticed a mood change though so it's gotta be one of these. I am thinking it's the zinc though.....

Er. That's a lot of supplements. Also, there have been some studies to suggest that zinc works to elevate one's mood.

Anyway, you basically have two options: (1) Stop taking everything until it gets better, then start them one at a time, or (2) stop taking them one at a time until it gets better, then try adding them back in.

I notice a clear mood chance when I take caffeine for my workouts. I become like the energizer bunny. About 300 mg does the trick. But I'm not addicted to it, I can stop anytime I want to........ rolleyes.gif
