Vitamin Deficiencies Affect Your Mood
Don’t Let A Bad Mood Define You
Are you a fighter, shouter, crier or laugher? Do others associate either of these moods with you? Friends generally establish relationships based upon consistently compatible moods. When someone exhibits uncharacteristic personality traits, friends notice. They may comment that you’re quieter than normal, louder than usual, or more easily irritated.
Any of us can get in a bad mood for a short while. Something unfavorable can happen at work or home that temporarily ruins our disposition. Usually, we alleviate these situations with a compassionate ear, an indulgent dessert or a good night’s sleep.
Of more concern are frequent mood swings or changes in personality that last several days, weeks or longer. It could be that we are unsuccessfully masking a personal tragedy. Perhaps we are anxious about something over which we have no control.
Recognize When Vitamins May Not Be Enough
Bipolar disorder  or schizophrenia are somewhat extreme diagnoses that can be treated with medication. Sometimes chemical imbalances from a sustained stressful situation leads to a short temper, hyperemotional conclusions over minor infractions and depression. Frequently, a nutritional imbalance is the root cause.
Some vitamins interfere with prescriptions so, let your physician know about any supplements you are taking. There are some primary vitamins which can control moods that also offer many other benefits. They are vitamin D and the vitamin B group (B1 thiamine, B2 riboflavin, B3 niacin, B5 pantothenic acid, B6 pyridoxine, B12 cobalmin, Bc folic acid, biotin, choline, Inositol).  A multivitamin often includes balanced doses of everything required. In cases of extreme deficiencies, you may be better served by a B-Complex tablet. The B vitamins work together as a complex and are dependent upon each other to perform their individual tasks in the body. 
Don’t let a bad mood rob you of your joy. When someone notices that you are not your usual self, consider a vitamin supplement or get a good night’s rest. You might even take a day off from work for extended recuperation. In many cases this will do the trick. If not, consider calmly resolving nagging issues with others. Discuss lingering symptoms with your personal physician. Friends will find you much more pleasant to be around when you’re A Bit More Healthy.
