Dear Alan, I just wanted to let you know how I got on with DepressionLess Tonic. I had really bad depression and was on prescribed tablets, which didn't "cure" it, they just masked it. It was a SRI drug and I didn't like the side effects (low energy with lots of yawning). So I came off them but felt miserable and felt I wanted to die. I told myself my own body's seratonin would kick in, but after just a week I couldn't hold on anymore I was so low. I came to you and you recommended DepressionLess. It was amazing! I have to say it cured me within a few days and with no side effects and the depression didn't return. I didn't even need to finish the bottle! I say to others out there, if you've got depression, don't hesitate, order this tonic. For me it was an Absolute Miracle! M.S. Wimborne, Dorset, UK

--------------------

Serotonin is regulated by two forms of gene, long and short. The short form is more likely to lead to depression. People born in Britain and USA tend to inherit the short form of the gene, hence they come low on the happiness scale. Denmark and Netherlands are countries with people with the highest proportion of people with the long gene, and are happiest.

MoodStepUp Herbal Tonic contains the herbs that stimulate greater production of serotonin to help lift your happiness level.

"DepressionLess has lifted my mood and I'm more confident, I can't believe it!" R.M. Northern Ireland.

"I used to get flustered and anxious and I felt down and had a bad attitude towards my life. Your DepressionLess Tonic has significantly changed my mood. I feel more positive, calm and confident. Thank you for your help." Maggie (Midlands).

What Diet should you follow to boost your brain and mood?

The healthy ketogenic diet is recommended and taking a regular dose of MCT Oil

HERBACTIVE PURE MCT OIL - WHAT DOES IT DO?

BOOSTS KETONES: Very high purity source of C8 MCT. C8 MCT is the best MCT to increase blood ketones.
INCREASES MENTAL AND PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE: As MCT oil increases ketone production, it becomes a readily available source of fuel for your body, so it is extremely valuable for people participating in sports. Improves decision-making on the pitch or in the game. Increased ketone production results in a higher level of endurance and an increased ability to perform to a higher standard for a prolonged period of time.
WEIGHT LOSS BENEFITS: MCT is highly recommended especially in a healthy keto diet. It can also help you lose weight because it is quickly burned and metabolised.
EASILY DIGESTED: No issues with digestion or diarrhoea when you follow our directions. Indigestion, loose stools, stomach aches caused by other MCT oils will not occur with our high quality C8 Oil.
NON-GMO, KETO, PALEO & VEGAN SAFE: Herbactive's all-natural MCT Oil is suitable for consumption in all diets and is completely non-allergenic. It is free of wheat, milk, eggs, peanut and shellfish and is entirely sourced from non-GMO coconut.
PURE KETONE ENERGY: Boosts energy levels by giving the body a natural ketone fuel source (transferring it from using glucose and sugar). This is clean energy. It does not raise blood glucose and has a much lower insulin response than other fuels (glucose, sugar, protein etc.) and even similar foods (e.g. coconut oil, other MCT oils with C10 and C12 MCTs). Getting into healthy ketosis your energy will last significantly longer than glucose and carbs (i.e. up to 5 hours).
EASY FOR ANY DIET: Herbactive MCT Oil is odorless, tasteless and can be substituted for other oils oils eg olive oil, walnut oil, sesame oil, etc. Easy to mix in protein shakes, smoothies, keto coffee, or any other types of drinks for sustained energy.

Herbactive MCT Oil
Boosts Ketones More Than Most Other MCTs (because of the C8 levels in our oil)| | Paleo & Vegan Friendly | Gluten Free | BPA-Free Plastic Bottle | over 80% Caprylic Acid | The higher the purity of MCT oil, the more your body will get into healthy ketosis.
INSTANT BOOST OF ENERGY: Herbactive MCT oil converts into ketones which then allows your body to have an instant boost of energy (which is better  and longer lasting than glucose burning [carbs and sugars]).
INCREASED MENTAL CLARITY: Caprylic acid (C8) in Herbactive MCT oil is known to support an increase in cognitive function; helps low states of mind and depression.
FUNGI KILLING PROPERTIES: Capric acid (C10) (20% of our oil) are known to fight against infectious pathogens. High purity MCT oil also improves digestion and can increases nutrient uptake (take our ABC NutriPowder with MCT oil!).
ENHANCES ALL THE BENEFITS OF STAYING IN A HEALTHY KETOSIS (i.e following a keto diet as Herbactive Health has outlined here)
DOSE/SERVING: Take 1 tablespoon (15ml) between 1 to 3 times a day. First time users should take 1 tablespoon a day for the first week unless you have previously used MCT oil. But always start on half-1 teaspoon 1-2 times daily to allow your body to get used to it.

General advice to consumers on the use of herbal remedies from the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

From the website of the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (www.mhra.gov.uk) Department of Health, UK

• Remember that herbal remedies are medicines. As with any other medicine they are likely to have an effect on the body and should be used with care. • Herbal remedies may sometimes interact with other medicines. This makes it particularly important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a herbal remedy with other medicines such as prescribed medicines (those provided through your doctor or dentist). • Treat with caution any suggestion that a herbal remedy is '100% safe' or is 'safe because it is natural'. Many plants, trees, fungi and algae can be poisonous to humans. It is worth remembering that many pharmaceuticals have been developed or derived from these sources because of the powerful compounds they contain. Any medicine, including herbal remedies, which have an effect on the body should be used with care. • Treat with caution any herbalist or other person who supplies herbal remedies if they are unwilling or unable to provide written information, in English, listing the ingredients of the herbal remedy they are providing. • If you are due to have a surgical operation you should always remember to tell your doctor about any herbal remedy that you are taking. • Anyone who has previously experienced any liver complaint, or any other serious health complaint is advised not to take any herbal remedy without speaking to their doctor first.

PRECAUTIONS:

Pregnant/Breast-feeding mothers

Few conventional medicines have been established as safe to take during pregnancy and it is generally recognised that no medicine should be taken unless the benefit to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the foetus. This rule should also be applied to herbal medicinal products. However, herbal products are often promoted to the public as being “natural” and completely “safe” alternatives to conventional medicines. Some herbal ingredients that specifically should be avoided or used with caution during pregnancy. As with conventional medicines, no herbal products should be taken during pregnancy unless the benefit outweighs the potential risk.

Volatile Oils

Many herbs are traditionally reputed to be abortifacient and for some this reputation can be attributed to their volatile oil component.(6) A number of volatile oils are irritant to the genito-urinary tract if ingested and may induce uterine contractions. Herbs that contain irritant volatile oils include ground ivy, juniper, parsley, pennyroyal, sage, tansy and yarrow. Some of these oils contain the terpenoid constituent, thujone, which is known to be abortifacient. Pennyroyal oil also contains the hepatotoxic terpenoid constituent, pulegone. A case of liver failure in a woman who ingested pennyroyal oil as an abortifacient has been documented.

Uteroactivity

A stimulant or spasmolytic action on uterine muscle has been documented for some herbal ingredients including blue cohosh, burdock, fenugreek, golden seal, hawthorn, jamaica dogwood, motherwort, nettle, raspberry, and vervain. Herbal Teas Increased awareness of the harmful effects associated with excessive tea and coffee consumption has prompted many individuals to switch to herbal teas. Whilst some herbal teas may offer pleasant alternatives to tea and coffee, some contain pharmacologically active herbal ingredients, which may have unpredictable effects depending on the quantity of tea consumed and strength of the brew. Some herbal teas contain laxative herbal ingredients such as senna, frangula, and cascara. In general stimulant laxative preparations are not recommended during pregnancy and the use of unstandardised laxative preparations is particularly unsuitable. A case of hepatotoxicity in a newborn baby has been documented in which the mother consumed a herbal tea during pregnancy as an expectorant. Following analysis the herbal tea was reported to contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to be hepatotoxic.

Breast-feeding mothers

A drug substance taken by a breast-feeding mother presents a hazard if it is transferred to the breast milk in pharmacologically or toxicologically significant amounts. Limited information is available regarding the safety of conventional medicines taken during breast-feeding. Much less information exists for herbal ingredients, and generally the use of herbal remedies is not recommended during lactation.

Paediatric Use

Herbal remedies have traditionally been used to treat both adults and children. Herbal remedies may offer a milder alternative to some conventional medicines, although the suitability of a herbal remedy needs to be considered with respect to quality, safety and efficacy. Herbal remedies should be used with caution in children and medical advice should be sought if in doubt. Chamomile is a popular remedy used to treat teething pains in babies. However, chamomile is known to contain allergenic sesquiterpene lactones and should therefore be used with caution. The administration of herbal teas to children needs to be considered carefully and professional advice may be needed.

Perioperative use

The need for patients to discontinue herbal medicinal products prior to surgery has recently been proposed. The authors considered eight commonly used herbal medicinal products (echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St John’s Wort, valerian). On the evidence available they concluded that the potential existed for direct pharmacological effects, pharmacodynamic interactions and pharmacokinetic interactions. The need for physicians to have a clear understanding of the herbal medicinal products being used by patients and to take a detailed history was highlighted. The American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) has advised patients to tell their doctor if they are taking herbal products before surgery and has reported that a number of anaesthesiologists have reported significant changes in heart rate or blood pressure in some patients who have been taking herbal medicinal products including St John’s Wort, ginkgo and ginseng. MCA is currently investigating a serious adverse reaction associated with the use of ginkgo prior to surgery. In this case, the patient who was undergoing hip replacement experienced uncontrolled bleeding thought to be related to the use of ginkgo.
