Is Clear Mood Right For You?

Clear Mood is advertised as a supplement that can ease the symptoms of stress and anxiety and that can provide essential support for a balanced and relaxed state of mind. The company behind this product is AdvoCare, a supplement manufacturer with more than 20 years of experience in developing, manufacturing and marketing dietary supplements. The company products are aimed at addressing four essential customer needs: weight-loss, energy input, performance and wellness enhancing formulations. The product portfolio includes over 100 different formulas at the time of this review.

According to the official website, Advocare Clear Mood can be used for a broad range of health concerns, from treating the symptoms of stress and anxiety, to elevating mood.

For those that suffer from high levels of stress or depression, finding a natural alternative (such as the formula being reviewed) that allows them to feel better is vital. However, in more severe cases, psychological therapy in combination with prescription drugs is more recommended.


Ingredients of Clear Mood

Clear Mood includes the following ingredients: 5-HTP, L-Theanine, and Magnolia Extract.

Effectiveness of Clear Mood

Clear Mood by AdvoCare contains 5-HTP (also known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan), a precursor to the neurotransmitter Serotonin, a naturally occurring substance which when depleted, may be linked to a large number of mood disorders. 5-HTP is commonly advertised as an effective antidepressant, sleep aid, and appetite suppressant. However, excess intakes of 5-Hydroxytryptophan have been linked to some side effects including nausea, gas, drowsiness, and decreased sex drive.

Other Clear Mood ingredients are an amino acid, L-Theanine and an herbal extract from the Magnolia plant.

L-Theanine is an amino acid commonly found in tea and increasingly more over the past few years as an ingredient in some dietary supplements. It is believed that Theanine can increase GABA levels in the brain and therefore that it can support the production of the neurotransmitters Dopamine and Serotonin. Theanine may be able to penetrate the BBB (blood brain barrier), but the research studies available on this matter are still inconclusive. Clear Mood reviews lack from the manufacturer’s website and are limited in number on other websites. The manufacturer mentions no Clear Mood side effects but merely states that pregnant and nursing women and people under the age of 18 should take cautionary measures before use.

According to the website, Clear Mood works by allowing the cells and nerves to function properly. However, while the sites talk a lot about the role of the brain and the nervous system, there is very little information available to support the manufacturer’s claims regarding this formula. We were unable to find any relevant clinical studies to backup the claims and to understand why the manufacturer believes their product is better than other similar supplements available at this moment.

Clear Mood Price

A bottle of Clear Mood contains 90 capsules, which should be enough for one month of treatment at a maximum recommended dosage of three capsules per day. The supplement is a relatively cheap product compared to other similar supplements. Most orders ship within two business days after being placed. There is an auto-shipment plan that allows for two or more bottles to be sent every month to a predetermined, given address. The formula does not seem to benefit from a money-back guarantee, nor are there any samples available (free or chargeable).


Does Clear Mood Work?

While the manufacturer and many of its retailers claim that this product has many positive effects on mood, relaxation and as a consequence, on the overall physical and mental performance, the formula lacks a few key ingredients that are usually available in many high rated supplements.

The lack of clinical researches and concrete evidences to support the practical application and Effectiveness of Clear Mood pills is also a bit disturbing. Thus, we recommend our readers to focus on products that have been fully researched and proved to work. It is important to search for a supplement that will satisfy your needs. That is supported by some positive reviews and testimonials, and that is manufactured by a company with a good reputation.

    I have been Diagnosed with anxiety from the age of 16 ( now 25) and I have taken different prescription medicines and always had strong side effects or have became dependent on. And never enjoyed the side effects. I have been using clear mood for over a year now and I love it. I don’t take it everyday just on my bad days. I only take one. When I take two I do feel very mellow. Not bad enough to make me not want to drive. Taking three knocks me out. I defiantly recommend clear mood to anyone with panic disorders. I’m not claiming that this is the fix all. Just telling how much it has helped me I haven’t had a panic attack since I have had clear mood in hand. And I even totaled my car this year. Talk about stress lol. Hope this review helps somebody!

    I have been taking zoloft for a number of years and just ordered this not realizing that it is not to be taken with antidepressants. Does anyone know why they can not be combined? I was hoping I could get off of the Zoloft by using this in its place.

    My 10 yr old so needs help with concentration at school. I recently took him off his ADHD meds and put him on Spark. It worked! He is not hyper anymore but still needs help in school for concentration. Would clear mood be something to help?

    I took Clear Mood twice daily while coming off high dosages of RX anxiety medication. Obviously I was under the supervision of a medical professional who knew I was supplementing. I am completely off anxiety medication now and have cut my antidepressants by half. Advocare also has a drinking mix that is supposed to help calm you. It’s called oasis. It is blueberry flavored, and I don’t like blueberries, so I won’t try it. I have heard wonderful things about it, though.

    We just recently found out that our 16 daughter has depression and is dealing with grief. Would you recommend Clear Mood to her to take on a daily basis instead of a RX medicine. We are trying to figure out in the long run is this safer for her and will it help her with her depression. We don’t hust wont to put her on a RX drug if we don’t have too Are there any side effects with this.

    hello! I have a chronic thyroid condition, i have no thyroids they were removed. So i take a replacement and will for all my life. I have a good life on the replacement no complaints , I do get depressed sometimes , maybe from my chronic condition or just life itself, anyways i have started using clear mood in may , i use it 3 times a day , it increases the serotonin in the brain, I feel more able to handle stress and it keeps the cortisol in my body down so I am able to handle anything much better, even a common cold or an emotionally difficult situation. I use it 3 times a day , i never get tired, i just get happy.

    Is Clear Mood known to interact/effect birth control? For example, I am aware the St. Johns Wart will make birth control pills ineffective.

    Thank you

    YES. It works! I was actually trying to stop using tobacco. CLEAR MOOD calmed me down and got me through the withdrawals. I will continue using it daily since it makes me feel “happy”. As usual Advocare has created a Potent mixture of the best relaxation and Alpha wave inducing herbs. All their product are so potent because they only use the most active form of the teas or herbs.

    I have been taking this supplement for one month and can tell a definate difference. It helps with my anxiety symptoms but does not make me drowsy. You can take one or up to three per day.

      Traci, it states not to drive while taking but you said it doesn’t make you drowsy? I would like to try but I am in my vehicle several times a day so that was my concern…Help!

        I have taken this product for two years. It in no way has ever made me sleepy. Advocare as a company is extremely proactive in disclosing the most extreme possibility in any ingredient, even if it is not the normal. You can start with one each morning and see how you personally feel. That is how I advise those who I help with product, although I take up to three a day, am a busy on the go, work from home and life on the go mom and this actually makes me feel great so the desire to be sleepy isnt there. I of course also use it with Advocare Spark which provides mental clarity and focus so the combination for me has been an amazing regimine to use without any side affects such as weight gain or drowsiness as some of the low dose RX medications I had tried over the years. I am happy to answer questions or help those who want more information.

          I have horrible anxiety with panic attacks. I have anxiety all day everyday. I want to start taking Clear Mood, but am afraid of anything happening to me. As you can tell I also have health anxiety with anxiety about taking medication. What is your experience with this supplement? How long before I should notice a difference? I am contemplating take Ativan instead, but I truly don’t want to. Thanks in advance for your advice!

            Jamie, you sound just like me in my 20’s. I’m pretty sure I psyched myself out about all meds :/ I have taken Clear Mood and did not have any side effects at all. Start with one a day Hope this helps! If you have any questions, shoot me an email.
