Mood disorders affect about 19 million Americans each year, and continue to rise. In an effort to offer natural mood and stress support, R-U-VED, one of the premier Ayurvedic herbal companies in the U.S., introduces JoyLift™, a proprietary Ayurvedic formula featuring saffron, an herb popular in Eastern healing traditions, known for its uplifting, rejuvenating and calming effects.
“Whether brought on by loneliness, stress or even PMS, mood disorders can be debilitating, and prescription medications can cause a range of unwanted side effects,” explained Dr. Virender Sodhi, Ayurvedic MD, naturopath physician and CEO of R-U-VED. “Saffron has been so effective for my patients suffering from melancholy that we developed JoyLift, a synergistic blend of saffron and other mood enhancing herbs.”
According to a study in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology (2005;97:281–4) saffron may be effective for supporting positive mood. In addition to saffron, JoyLift also includes ashwagandha, gotu kola, mucuna pruriens and Indian barberry, considered to be brain tonics that rejuvenate the nervous system and promote tranquility.
JoyLiftcomes in a 60 caplet bottle, with a suggested retail price of $34. The product will be available by November 21, 2011.
