PERQUE Mood Guard: Mind/ Body Tune-up

Natural Synergy for a Positive Outlook


Improve Your Mood and More



Mood disorders have become epidemic. Over 40 million Americans are taking prescription drugs for depression or anxiety. As highly processed, fatty foods and chemical food additives have become staples of the American diet, unstable mental and emotional health have become all too common. For optimum psychological health, the body must eliminate chemicals and toxins. Nutrient deficits reduce the body's capacity for detoxification. Toxins and chemicals that are not properly cleared become free to interfere with the body's own chemicals and chemical messengers, particularly neurotransmitters, which affect mood and thought patterns. PERQUE Mood Guard, with its free-form, active ingredients, is designed to support the elimination of chemicals and toxic build-up in the system.*


PERQUE Mood Guard is a natural alternative to prescription drugs. Mood Guard provides the synergy of essential nutrients that are necessary for mental and emotional stability:

  • L-methionine is key to maintaining clear detoxification pathways in the liver and brain. Mood Guard supplies L-methionine in its activated free form. In the liver, the L-methionine in Mood Guard acts to chelate heavy metals, much-documented contributors to mental and emotional disorders. Research shows that PERQUE Mood Guard is superior to SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine, which is converted in the body to methionine) as a natural anti-depressant.*
  • Glycine, used by the brain as a control neurotransmitter, regulates sleep rhythms, thereby producing calmness and aiding sleep. It also sustains the phase II detoxification pathway in the liver, neutralizing and clearing toxins.*
  • Magnesium, which is implicated in nerve irritability and mood instability, is also included in the PERQUE Mood Guard formula. Required for nerve transmission, adequate magnesium is necessary for maintaining normal mood levels.*
  • L-aspartate is also involved in brain and nervous system metabolism. Experts frequently recommend this supplement in its magnesium form for treating depression.*

Researchers are increasingly discovering the importance of methionine in the treatment of depression. In a random, doubleblind, placebo-controlled trial, oral supplementation of S-adenosylmethionine significantly improved symptoms of major depression. In another study of patients with major depression, researchers found an inverse relationship between plasma levels of S-adenosylmethionine and symptoms of depression.*

In a random, double-blind study, researchers evaluated the effects of magnesium supplementation on premenstrual symptoms. During the trial, women were asked to fill out a questionnaire to document their symptoms. The researchers discovered that magnesium significantly affected test scores and concluded, "These data indicate that magnesium supplementation could represent an effective treatment of premenstrual symptoms related to mood changes."*

Considering the importance of the liver in the detoxification process, the correlation between adequate L-methionine and liver health is vital. It has been documented that the promotion of bile flow and improvement of membrane function occur with appropriate supplementation. Detoxification is essential for physical and mental stability. PERQUE Mood Guard ensures liver health, which in turn ensures better physical and mental health.*
