Boost your mood with nutritional supplements
Take a look out of the window right now. What do you see? Probably not much, given how gloomy it is right now. And you're not alone, because new research shows half of us never see the light of day unless it is on their lunch break.
A survey by Beurer found the nation's office workers are being deprived of sunlight during the winter months because the sun rises so late and sets early in the evening.
This could leave millions of people with a vitamin D deficiency, which could take its toll on their health and strength.
Roberty Slade of Beurer noted that once the clocks go back at the end of October, the dark nights start to take effect.
"If you leave for work relatively early then the chances are your mornings are dark too, which means that if you don't get time outdoors as part of your job then you are likely to see very little daylight at all during the week," he said.
"That in itself can be very depressing and it's inevitable that long dark days will have an effect on our moods."
If you have been feeling sluggish, tired or just a bit down, you could try taking nutritional supplements to bolster your immune system and boost your mood.
Forget the processed fatty foods so high in sugar that they will send your body crashing down half an hour after consumption - think consistent meals throughout the day that will stablise your blood sugar levels and give you the nutritional tools you need to cope with festive stress.
Food that is rich in omega-3 can have a positive impact on our mood, so try Fushi's Omega Totale Health and Beauty Oil drizzled over a grilled chicken salad or vegetable cous cous. It contains a blend of flaxseed oil, hempseed oil and avocado oil, along with olive and evening primrose oil, so is great for stepping up your intake of omega 3, 6 and 9.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
