Celexil

celexil antidepressant

Celexil is a nonprescription supplement that is marketed for “Nervous System Health” and for providing advanced mood support. It was once marketed for delivering mood balance for depression, anxiety and stress, but has since been reformulated, including receiving an updated product label. That said, Celexil continues to be a product developed by Newton-Everett Nutraceuticals.

Celexil Ingredients

According to the official product page, when this Celexil review was written, the supplement facts state that the formula is composed of the following ingredients:

  • Vitamin B6
  • Folate
  • Vitamin B12
  • Magnesium
  • John’s Wort Extract
  • 5-HTP

Both St. John’s Wort and 5-HTP are part of a 1300 mg proprietary blend. This updated formula is very similar to the original. In fact, all the same ingredients have been used. The only real difference is in their quantities.

Potential Mood Support Benefits

Each of the ingredients in the formula is well known for its ability to help to promote the reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression. In particular, the ingredients in the proprietary blend – St. John’s Wort and 5-HTP – are widely recognized for assisting in achieving an improved mood.

For instance, it’s not uncommon for those ingredients to be commonly used as mood enhancement ingredients and are frequently recommended by doctors as an alternative to prescription antidepressants in milder cases of anxiety disorders and depression.

In fact, in the United Kingdom and some parts of Europe, the recommendation of St. John’s Wort supplements for individuals with these conditions is quite common. Some studies suggest that even though St. John’s Wort’s efficacy remains controversial, it has demonstrated that when used in the treatment of mild-to-moderate depression that it’s efficacy is comparable to SSRIs (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors).

Some of the potential benefits associated with St. John’s Wort and 5-HTP include:

  • Improved mood
  • Decreased nervousness
  • Decreased tiredness related to depression
  • Boosting serotonin levels
  • Promote sleep

Not Without Side Effects

It should be noted that Celexil does come with a possibility of side effects among some users. Although adverse effects are typically minor and uncommon, some of the side effects that have been associated with St. John’s Wort include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Headache
  • Upset stomach
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Sensitivity to sunlight

It is also important to note that Celexil, and any other product containing St. John’s wort, should not be used in conjunction with prescription antidepressants (e.g. SSRIs) or within 14 days of having stopped using those medications.

Always Consult your Doctor First

If you believe that you suffer from anxiety, depression or any other mood disorder, it is highly recommended that you speak with a licensed doctor before beginning any treatment that includes supplements, such as Celexil, or make any other changes to your lifestyle or diet.

Your mental health should be taken very seriously and a professional should be consulted if you are concerned enough about your mental state of wellbeing that you are considering taking supplements. Additionally, it is also wise to consult a medical professional before making any dietary supplement a regular part of your diet, especially if you have an existing health condition or are treating one with medications.
