Webinar: Mood Support with Botanical & Nutritional Compounds

This webinar explores botanical and nutritional compounds that play a supportive and sometimes central role in providing tangible relief in those with mild to moderate mood disorders. In more serious and chronic conditions, botanical and nutritional compounds can also provide a beneficial adjunct to pharmaceutical medications because they support underlying physiological functions at both the cellular and neuroendocrine levels.
