Dr Oz After 35 Survival Kit: Mood Boosters
So far Dr. Oz has filled his After-35 Survival Kit with essential ingredients to relieve stress (Lemon Balm Extract), at-home Botox (Siloxane and Peptide Cream) and ease bloating as well as important Vitamins women over 35 should be taking every day. One of the most annoying changes that women face as they get older is their mood, which also affects their family and everyone else around them. One woman says she has been compared to a pit bull because she is constantly barking at everyone while another says her friends call her waterworks because she is fine one minute, but very emotional the next. Another woman admits her moods can set her into a tailspin, which has led to her kids calling her the Tasmanian Devil because she often chases them around the house when they don’t get chores or homework finished. They all want, and desperately need, Doctor Oz’s help.
How to Improve your Mood Without Drugs

Dr Oz: Morning Crankiness Cure
Fortified Cereals -The number one cure for morning crankiness, says Dr. Oz, is fortified cereals, with Vitamin B6 in particular. B Vitamins get into your brain and help you deal with stuff. He says Wheat Bran is a good example of the right kind of cereal to eat first thing in the morning, even for the kids.
Dr Oz: Macadamia Nuts Mood Booster
Macadamia Nuts – Macadamia Nuts are a wonderful snack because they are rich in Omega 3s and can help with anxiety. Dr. Oz says they can be especially helpful on-the-go because they are easy to carry with you to work or for a ride in the car.
