3 Of The Best Supplement Ingredients To Support Mood

3 Of The Best Supplement Ingredients To Support Mood

When you think of supplements, you may think of their benefits on your physical performance and physiology. They can help build muscle, increase strength, and support fat loss.

But that’s not all supplements can help you with. They can heighten your energy,  improve your focus, and even support your mood.

More broadly, we know that  the body and the mind go hand and hand. What impacts on the body, like movement, impacts the mind, and vice versa.

Today we’re talking about supplement ingredients that can support your mood. Before we get into this, let’s be clear, supplements are not everything. When it comes to supporting mood, they should not be your first line of defense.

Interventions like  morning sunlight, consistent movement routines, and good sleep should be your main steps to increasing your mood and productivity. Once you have those basics in a good place, then it’s time to talk about supplements.

Our nootropic  Kaged Mindset is designed with productivity in mind, but productivity and mood go hand in hand.


On an anecdotally level, you can probably relate to this. Most of us do our best work when we’re motivated and in a good mood. On a scientific level, we know there are similar mechanisms overlapping the two.

For example, caffeine, which tends to improve mood, increases dopamine. You may recognize dopamine as a key hormone for motivation as well as pleasure, and is also linked to improved mood.

Energy production may also play a role in both. When we’re energized, we tend to perform our best, do our best mental work, and feel like we’re in a great mood.

Kaged Mindset contains each of the ingredients in our list. This banned substance-tested nootropic will support your mood, productivity, attention, and focus. It also comes in a caffeinated and caffeine-free version.




Here are some ingredients in Kaged Mindset or Kaged Mindset + Caffeine that can support mood.

1) Caffeine

If you’re a fan of coffee, then you may already understand that caffeine can enhance your mood.

One of the physiological explanations for this is that caffeine is dopaminergic, meaning it encourages the release of dopamine.

Dopamine supports motivation, attention, and mood. In Kaged Mindset + Caffeine we included two forms of caffeine:

  1. PurCaf® Organic Caffeine from green coffee beans. This form acts fast, and within 30 minutes you’ll feel a clean rush of energy.
  2. zümXR® extended release caffeine uses a delivery technology to release over the course of 5-6 hours.

This one-two combination of caffeine allows you to sustain your energy and a jump in your step for hours.*

2) L-Phenylalanine

L-phenylalanine is one of the nine essential amino acids that our body can’t make on its own. It plays many roles in the body, but one of them is related to dopamine.

This amino acid can influence dopamine and other key related hormones, helping improve mood. It also plays a crucial component in the production of several important molecules for focus and alertness:

  • Tyrosine - another amino acid that sharpens focus.
  • Epinephrine - also known as adrenaline, this molecule gives us immediate alertness and helps us use energy. 
  • Norepinephrine - Like epinephrine, norepinephrine plays a key role in the “fight or flight” response.

L-phenylalanine is a key, underrated ingredient in the Kaged Mindset formula that helps you stay productive for hours.

3) B Vitamins

B vitamins are crucial for a host of bodily functions, most notably energy production and cognition. A quality B vitamin complex can help your body maintain normal nervous function and replenish key neurotransmitters.

While they may not improve mood directly, because of their role in energy production and cognition, they’re a piece of the puzzle in helping us feel good and stay productive.


Enter: Kaged Mindset

We include all of these in Kaged Mindset. With these ingredients alongside cognitive-supporters like Alpha-GPC and more, Kaged Mindset is the nootropic for those who want to get more done, and enter that realm of flow state.

It comes in caffeinated and caffeine-free versions.







Omega 3: Another Supplement That Might Support Mood, But We Need More Research

Omega-3 fatty acids are one of the healthiest fats in existence. They support everything from heart health, to joint health, to brain health.* For supporting your overall health, it’s one of the most well-researched supplements out there.

In some clinical trials, omega-3 has been shown to support some mood disorders. This may be because of its anti-inflammatory effects, but there are other theories related to its abilities to support overall brain health. An overview of this research has been covered by Harvard Health.

Kaged Omega-3 is bioavailable from high-absorption triglycerides, and sustainably caught and ethically sourced-certified.




Get The Basics Right

We mentioned this in the beginning, and we’ll mention it again. If you want to feel better, perform better, have better focus and be in a better mood, the biggest areas for change exist outside the realm of supplementation.

Get those right first. After you’ve covered your basics, that’s where a premium nootropic like Kaged Mindset can come in, and improve your attention, focus, and productivity.
