Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, I felt pretty down. With constantly changing rules, 24/7 news updates, and various protocols and procedures to follow, the coronavirus certainly took an emotional toll. So when I was given the chance to test out The Vitamin Shoppe Vthrive brand Mood Balance, I was eager. I didn’t even know there were supplements on the market that could support emotional well-being.
About Mood Balance
Mood Balance, which comes in the form of non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free veggie capsules, combines three clinically-tested ingredients. The first is Relora, a proprietary blend of magnolia officinalis bark and phellodendron amurense bark. The second is Sensoril Ashwagandha, an adaptogenic herb known for its ability to help the body respond to stress. And the third is PharmaGABA, a form of the calming neurotransmitter GABA (a.k.a. gamma-aminobutyric acid).
The purpose of the formula: to promote a positive mood, enhance emotional well-being, and support a healthy response to stress.
Vthrive The Vitamin Shoppe brand also promises to be “simply clean”—meaning its products are free from magnesium stearate, stearic acid, or titanium dioxide. The brand aims to help you reach your health and wellness goals by emphasizing quality and clinically-tested ingredients and avoiding artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.
Trying The Product
For 30 days, I took one dose (two easy-to-swallow capsules) of Mood Balance per day. I chose to take the supplement in the morning after breakfast in order to stay consistent with my already established routine.

After about 10 days, I noticed that I felt a little more relaxed, a little less stressed, and a little more upbeat throughout my day. I think these improvements happened gradually, but it was after those 10 days that I really took note of the positive impact I felt. From there, the benefits stayed consistent throughout the rest of my 30-day test run.
I was really pleased with the subtle but marked changes I noticed in both my mood and emotional well-being after adding Mood Balance to my daily routine.
I had never tried anything like this before but found the product to be a safe, effective, easy-to-take supplement that kept my emotional wellness in check. You’d better believe that I will continue to purchase it and recommend it to others!
