Staying Positive Through Winter with Relora®

Every year as winter settles in and the holidays start to wind down, some of your customers will fall into a winter depression. Also known as seasonal affective disorder, SAD affects millions of people annually. To this day, scientists still find winter depression a mystery. Some research supports the theory that genetics, along with ions in the air that change with the seasons, may play a big factor in who is affected by seasonal affective disorder. Theories also suggest that the disorder is caused by a circadian rhythm “phase shift” caused by the time change and decrease in natural sunlight.

Symptoms from seasonal affective disorder vary from person to person. Most general feelings include fatigue, the perception of hopelessness, social withdrawal, and depression. Depending on the severity of SAD within different individuals, these symptoms may range from mild irritants all the way to critical extremes that could require medical attention or even hospitalization. Other indications of SAD may include weight loss or gain, insomnia, excessive sleepiness, lack of concentration, anger, anxiety, and crying.

As the seasonal affective disorder season quickly approaches, one thing to clue your customers in on is supplements containing Relora®.
