Find out what natural remedies are out there to help with mood swings


We’ve put together a list of natural remedies for menopause that will help you with mood swings. Mood swings are an unfortunate but common symptom of the menopause journey for many women. As oestrogen levels decrease, they can have a knock-on effect on mood-regulating hormones like serotonin and dopamine. So if you find yourself feeling tearful, sad, irritable or angry for no apparent reason during perimenopause, you’re not alone! 

The symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are often untreated, and unfortunately, there is no magic cure-all for the struggles women face during these years.

If you’re looking for a natural remedy for mood swings during menopause, you’re in good hands. At Key, we’ve meticulously researched and investigated a wide variety of minerals, vitamins and herbals to help support women through menopause and mitigate common symptoms — and they’re all included in your Key for Peri & Menopause solution. 

Let’s take a look at the ingredients we’ve included to help combat mood swings! 

Natural remedies for menopause


Often known as folic acid or B9, this helps support serotonin regulation. Serotonin passes messages between the nerve cells and allows the brain to manage various functions, from determining mood to regulating social behaviour. Medical professionals often combine Folate and B12 to treat depression. On its own, folate helps to boost antidepressant medication. Your Essentials Blend includes Folate. 


It plays an important role in transporting oxygen to support energy levels and aiding muscle strength. Low levels of iron can lead to feelings of fatigue and depression.  Iron deficiency is more common in women. This is especially true in women of childbearing age.  Keeping enough iron in the body is important as fatigue, apathy, and mood changes associated with iron deficiency can often lead to depression. Your Essentials Blend includes Iron.

Vitamin B6

It aids the production of neurotransmitters and helps regulate brain function, which allows emotions. A deficiency can cause short-term anaemia, a weakened immune system, confusion, and depression. It is also beneficial for women suffering from premenstrual tension or premenstrual depression. Your Essentials Blend includes Vitamin B6.

Vitamin B12

It is essential for the creation of red blood cells and nerves. Low levels can cause fatigue, depression and sometimes paranoia. It’s naturally found in meats, eggs, and animal-by products, meaning vegetarians and vegans may have an increased risk of the deficiency. Your Essentials Blend includes this vitamin. 

Vitamin D

It helps to regulate cell growth and plays an important role in helping the immune system. Taken with Vitamin K2 it protects the bones and is beneficial, as low vitamin D levels have been linked to depression in both men and women. Your Essentials Blend includes Vitamin D3.


It plays an important role in supporting a healthy immune system and helping the body protect the gut from damage. If you have low zinc levels in your diet, you may find your immune system is weaker; you may lose your appetite, suffer from anaemia or hair loss, and depression. Vegetarians need 50% more zinc than non-vegetarians due to the body’s lower absorption rate. Zinc can improve the response of antidepressants whilst reducing the side effects associated with the medication. Your Essentials Blend includes Zinc.

Ashwagandha Root

This Ayurvedic adaptogen is in use for centuries. It helps relieve anxiety and stress to promote restful sleep. It may help regulate hormones, helping support your mood. Studies have demonstrated its role as a nootropic, immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory and cortisol regulator, lending a calming effect throughout your body. Ashwagandha Root is included in the Calm & Collected Complex* of your Remedy Blend.


Magnesium is a mineral that plays more than 300 roles in maintaining and protecting the body’s health. It is a common element in remedies for balancing moods. Deficiency can cause irritability, fatigue, confusion, and stress. Magnesium helps develop serotonin and helps you feel happy.  Magnesium is included in the Calm & Collected Complex* of your Remedy Blend.
