Relora®: A Summer Mood Boost Ingredient

As a health business, you’ve probably heard about seasonal mood swings. Some people experience the “winter blues” while others take advantage of the “summer high.” But do you know why the seasons have an effect? And is there a way to capitalize on that for better business?

Seasonal Mood Swings

Where the winter can be darker (both because the days are shorter and there is more cloud cover), summer is just the opposite. Skies are clearer. The sun shines more and the daylight hours extend into the early night. To the human body, sunlight means day time. It triggers certain biological processes such as keeping your metabolism higher longer in the anticipation of food and the expectation that sleep is still a ways away.


The human body regulates activities like eating and sleeping in a day-long pattern called the circadian rhythm. So changes in sunlight can negatively affect the rhythm and result in improper hormone control, sugar imbalance, overeating, and lack of sleep. Each of these, in turn, can create mood swings.


What It Means for Business

Even though summer sunlight generally improves attitudes and has positive benefits like increasing metabolism, the shift in the light and hours can still affect mood. There’s a need for mood boosts all year-round. One method to provide that boost is through a health supplement or food product. Perhaps you’ve already developed a dietary or health product that you think could benefit from a mood boost ingredient. If so, read on.


Choose Relora® as Your Mood Boost Ingredient

Relora® is a wellness ingredient created from natural plant extracts that helps improve mood state scores. It has been studied in several peer-reviewed journals and supported by randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled publications. Participants saw an 11% reduction in overall stress, which also helped reduce stress eating.
