Ingredients: B Vitamins, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, HydroxyB12 (active B12), 5-MTHF (active folate), Vitamin C, Chromium, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc, Taurine

  • B Vitamins support cellular energy, detoxification, and mood; B1, B2, B3 are important for brain health, B5 promotes hormone production, B6 helps tryptophan convert to serotonin for a healthy mood, and Folate and B12 create new cells, promote energy production and are vital for the central nervous system.4,5
  • Vitamin B5 is required for the formation of all hormones.
  • Vitamin B6 supports the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin to melatonin for optimal mood and sleep.
  • HydroxyB12 is an active form of vitamin B12 for energy and mood
  • 5-MTHF is the active form of folic acid for energy and mood.
  • Vitamin C buffers nerve cell damage in depression, helps reduce anxiety, and is an important cofactor in the synthesis of serotonin, norepinephrine, and the adrenal hormones that improve the ability to cope with everyday stressors, and research shows that 15g of IVC can correct red blood cell abnormalities in 100% of people with chronic fatigue syndrome (DFS) within minutes.6,7
  • Calcium is vital for bone building, relaxing smooth muscles, and a steady state of calcium flow between cells is needed for cellular energy.8
  • Chromium may contain mood stabilizing properties as well as antidepressant effect.9
  • Copper and zinc imbalances may cause mood disorders, ADHD, anger problems, and more.10,11
  • Magnesium helps energy, anxiety, depression, muscle spasms, pain, energy, heart health, migraines, and asthma.12,13
  • Manganese can bind to neurotransmitters and stimulate faster or more efficient movement of electrical impulses throughout your body. As a result, brain function and mood may be improved.14
  • Selenium is an antioxidant needed for immunity, thyroid health, glutathione production, reduction of inflammation, and helps restore imbalances in circadian rhythm to promote sleep and reduce the effects of stress15-17
  • Zinc is involved with copper in mood stabilization.18 In addition it helps immunity, wound healing, protection against oxidative damage, reducing inflammation, and may improve athletic performance by action on thyroid and testosterone hormones.19
  • Taurine is an amino acid that stimulates new brain cell formation, and can help improve mood and brain health20
Note – formulas may be modified occasionally. 


  • IM Fuel D: Vitamin D helps to support mood including depression, and reduce fatigue, inflammation, oxidative stress, and cardiovascular disease.21,22
