Mood enhancer supplement?
Hey guys, so long story short I just broke up after a 9 year relationship and I’m feeling very demotivated both at work and in the gym, mood is very low and I have a hard time keep going these days.
Is there any supplement that can boost/enhance mood and an overall “well being” feeling?
Thanks guys, much appreciated!

Phenibut man.... You will feel great and it won't bother you so much... Just limit it to 2-4 days/week.

Honestly, when I got out of relationship it was difficult to me to work out too so I decided to try out crossfit simply because it was group focused, it actually really helped out a lot. After about 2-3 months I went back to lifting once I got out of my funk. Plus crossfit is too damn expensive lol

5 HTP, tryptophan, ashwaghanda, SAMe in the morning on an empty stomach, theanine, lemon balm, dioscin, gaba, kava kava, kratom, phenibut, any fat burner with eria jarensis, those are just a few off the top of my head.
My break up was the biggest motivation for me and my relationship with the gym! Use this hurt you are feeling as FUEL to push harder than you ever have before. If you can't find the motivation, start thinking about your future. As cliche as it sounds dont think about the break up or the past. Take some time to yourself, do some soul searching and create a VISION in your mind for the rest of your life. That should get you excited, and give you something to look forward to and work towards! Best of luck buddy

I would say Phenibut just like what the other guys are saying.
Try to limit it to no more than twice a week because you will build a tolerance to it and wont be as effective.
I took it twice and the first time was just really sleepy and relaxed.
The second time i took it, i was talking to everyone

I know it’s not your question, but I want to advise you mourn your loss and work to move through it and accept it vs masking it with something like phenibut. Force yourself to eat super clean, workout, and surround yourself with family/friends.

Try to put yourself in situations that help lift you up, that's why I chose to do a group workout (crossfit). Having others holding me accountable and looking forward to seeing me really helped a lot.
We're here for you too dude. Never be afraid to shoot a pm or anything.

I am not a huge fan of phenibut simply because you can't use it daily. It might be something you buy and just dose every couple days when you really need a boost. For me, EC has always given me a nice mood/mental boost, especially if you toss in theanine. I picked up a couple bottles of Noopept from SNS and that actually gives me a nice feeling of wellness and clarity. Breakups suck, those of us who are divorced can attest to that lol. Best thing for me was simply dealing with it as best i could, not running away from the pain, and staying busy. The second i stopped or slowed down... i had some bad times. Take up a new hobby or something, get outside as much as you can, surround yourself with positivity.

Nootropimax is the bomb for real.
A few years back I was in a similar situation as you are. Broke up after 6+ years. The only thing that helped me was time. I found new hobbies to keep me busy (more involved with cars and guitars), I was rarely alone and focused on me. Just takes time to heal.

That surely is tough...not an easy thing to go through.
This combo never fails to perk me up:
Wash down a Vicaine or two with some RE1GN, and follow that up with some Androsterone.
Kratom (Green Maeng Da is my favorite so far) could also be substituted for the Vicaine.
That is me...but in general terms, I would say this would be an ideal circumstance to experiment with some Kratom. It has never given me any withdrawal issues..

Man i have suffered the withdrawals! It passes shaprish though.. But this time round i have limited doses. Last time i was knocking back 8-10 grams spread out over the day.
Kratom has been the best mood enhancement i have ever tried. Its not euphoric or nothing it just like a feeling of well being... Also being a very bad anxiety sufferer it has completely eliminated that. I am more talkitive. More laidback also. I use to use pre workouts ALOT. Soon as i use to run out previous i would just buy a different pre to run again.... I havent took a pre workout in 6 months since tsking Kratom also. I enjoy my workouts alot more just using Kratom.
So a thumbs up for Kratom... I have tried every mood enhancement thier is. Macuna's.. 5-htp.. DMAA.. DMHA.. St Johns Wort.. CBD Oil etc etc Nothing helped.
Another nice addition is Ashwaghanda. Another supplelment i highly rate

Forget the supplements. It's always sad when relationship comes to an end, but it can be liberating too. It's too easy to fall in self pity in that situation, but that just makes things worse. Just get back in the saddle and enjoy your freedom for a change. You'll get over it, trust me.

Like others have said phenibut xt by sns would be a great one to try if you haven't before.

Sure is! To me it is quite clear that Kratom is the supplement of choice here for OP. He is looking for mood enhancement and a sense of well being. This is exactly what Kratom offers and it does it exceptionally well.

All I would say is to add agmatine to your daily kratom intake. There is a slight withdrawal and agmatine makes it so much easier.
Edit- I do want to say that I agree with those saying not to rely on any supplement to mask things long term. Everyone has to grieve, whatever the loss, it is part of the healing process. I find that when I am sad, mad, dealing with things in general, a good cardio sweat is amazing. I can't lift because my mind is not where it needs to be, but a mindless hard bike ride, HIIT, hitting the bag, etc.. raises the endorphins and makes me feel great for hours.
