Not quite sure just yet
I purchased this product on 7-25-18 and have gone through one bottle and just started a second bottle. I’m not quite sure yet if I see a difference but am willing to give it at least 3 months in order to be fair. I’m taking this more for a mood elevator.

I didn't get any benefit from this product. If anything I had more of an appetite than without taking it.

It's wonderful! It works!
For years I have suffered from anxiety and because of it I would eat more trying to calm myself, specially during periods of lots of stress at work and specially sweet snacks, sometimes nibbling away all throughout the day between meals. I have tried several supplements, but Brighter Day is the one that I can say works best with 100% certainty. I no longer crave sweet stuff as much (in case I do I just eat a little bit, not like before) and I am satisfied with small quantities of food very fast, hence I eat less, hence I am losing weight. I feel calm and tranquil and I no longer need to use food as soothing mechanism. Great product!

Improved mood but did not help control appetite
While BrighterDay did support improved mood and a little more clarity, it did nothing to control my appetite, which was largely the reason I purchased the product.

Controls appetite but it could be better. It definitely stimulates better moods.

Can you take this while taking lithium or antidepressants?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I quickly googled herbal interactions with antidepressants, and found an article advising against taking these four: Ginko Biloba, St John's Wort, 5-HTP, Kava (or Piper methysticum). This product contains 5-HTP so I'll give it a miss. Next step is consulting the doctor I guess...
