Albizzia julibrissin (Mimosa), traditionally known in
China as the "herb of happiness," is one of the most valued
for supporting a healthy mood during periods of occasional anxiety and stress. Albizzia
flowers and bark have been used for centuries to elevate the mood, promote
mental calmness, and support a peaceful night's sleep.
There are several supplements used for mood enhancement or have an influence on happiness including SAM-e, 5-HTP, and St Johns Wort.
