Bye, bye Blue Monday
The new year has just started and the first ailments have already begun. In addition, all your good intentions do not seem to end up in a productive way. In short: Blue Monday. Of course you can not influence all factors of life, but you can choose consciously for good supplementation. Probably it eases 'the pain' a bit. We lend you a hand!
If you are considering using supplements, take a look at the time of the year and how your body responses to it. What do you need most at this moment?
Blue Monday is the name of the most depressing day of the year; based on a scientific formula. The color blue used to have a negative connotation in sailing. Shippers hoisted a blue flag and painted a blue band around the ship when the captain or an officer was deceased. This showed on arrival that the crew was in 'The Blues'.
Cliff Arnall, a British psychologist, designed a responsible, scientific formula that shows that this particular Monday (the Monday of the last full week of January) is the most gloomy day of the year. He took into account, among other things, the fact that: the days are short and dark, it takes a long time before people can enjoy a holiday and - yes indeed - around this time the insight grows that most good intentions will not become reality. It has to be said: It's a typical Western phenomenon: in India, Hindus around this time celebrate the transition to longer days (winter solstice).

Anyone who thinks that bones and joints do not offer so much in terms of nutritional value, probably have to reconsider this. The hard and rigid structures contain a wide range of essential nutrients that we normally do not get enough of in our diets. However, traditional cultures and wild animals do! They instinctively know that bones and cartilage are very nutritious and use it in their diet to strengthen their vitality.
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring amino acid and works as an antioxidant in the body, but also as an essential precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin. After taking 5-HTP, the molecule easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and is absorbed into the central nervous system. Here it does its work via a specific route that converts 5-HTP to serotonin. Serotonin is subsequently also used for, among other things, the production of melatonin. 5-HTP also promotes mood and is a precursor to serotonin and a precursor to melatonin.
