1. What is Lumiday?
Acting as a stress reliever, Lumiday is an all natural remedy for anxiety designed to ease the effects of stress, give you complete emotional support, and improve your overall mood.
It is manufactured by the same company that makes Instaflex, a joint support product, and it is is relatively new to the market.
2. What Are The Ingredients in Lumiday?
Lumiday is made up of a number of all natural herbs and extracts designed to help improve your mood dramatically.
The full ingredient list includes a wide array of Vitamin B derivatives including, B1, B3, B6, B9, and B12. These vitamins are used to help increase your energy levels, as well as metabolism.
Lumiday also contains several other major ingredients, including St. Johns Wort, Theanine, Rhodiola Rosea, ashwagandha root, and 5-htp.
It is interesting to note that 5 HTP mood enhancer is used in several dietary supplements, as well as treatment for depression.
3. Are There Any Side Effects From Lumiday?
While we cannot determine whether Lumiday itself has any potential side effects, some of the ingredients contained in the product do cause mild side effects.
Vitamin B1, for instance, can cause mild symptoms, such as a feeling of warmth, itching or hives, weakness, sweating, nausea, and restlessness.
This is not to say that there is sufficient quantities of B1 in Lumiday to cause these effects, but the potential is there.
4. My Personal Results With Lumiday
Although I’m generally a “happy-go-lucky” type of guy, like most people I can get into a down mood every once in awhile.
While Lumiday seems to be geared towards people suffering from chronic depression issues, I decided to try out lumiday on the days that I did not feel so great, and help to deal with some minot anxiety I was having from my upcoming wedding.
The directions state to take 2 capsules daily with water, and allow the ingredients to build up in your system.
I started taking them on a monday, and I don’t know if it was a placebo or what, but about an hour later I started to feel as if I was in a better overall mood.
Not like a “high” feeling, but just overall more content.
After a few weeks I started to notice I was feeling generally calmer, with alot less anxiety.
It wasn’t like a “I don’t give a s$#t” attitude that you get with prescription medications like Xanax, but I was not worrying about the small things in life anymore.
As far as side effects, the only one I noticed was that I got a bit of dry mouth, but nothing substantial.
- Increased overall mood
- Lowered Anxiety
- I slept better while on it
- Felt more relaxed
- Available at GNC
- Wide praise on a number of third party sites
- A bit overpriced in my opinion
- Some users say it didn’t work for them
- Only available in select stores
7. What About The Lumiday Free Trial?
There has been several complaints on numerous third party sites about the free trial practices of Lumiday.
When you order the free trial, you have 14 days to try it out “risk free”.
It’s actually 18 days from the date of order, because the company allows a 4 day grace period for shipping and transition.However, at the end of your 18 day trial, you are automatically enrolled in their Monthly Auto shipment, where they will charge you $75 every month to receive their product.
This business model is somewhat controversial, with manufacturers arguing that if the customer likes the product, it will make it easier for them to simply receive the product automatically.
The gray area lies in the fact that many customers don’t realize they will be charged at the end of their trial, they think they are just receiving a sample of Lumiday.
While the billing procedure may seem like a scam, it does not indicate whether or not the supplement works.
Alternatively, you can purchase Lumiday on Amazon for a one time price of $43. Click here to find it on Amazon.
8. My Recommendation
In general, the Lumiday reviews that we found were very positive.
Most of the testimonials reported enhanced mood, and a decrease in depression and anxiety.
Some users reported that the product worked great, but the price was too high.
Based on my own personal test results, I think it is worth giving it a shot.
That being said, I would recommend you steer clear of their free trial.
While technically not a scam, they will end up charging your card continually until you call to cancel, which could leave you with a significant dent in your wallet.

I have been taking this product for 2 months now.I started taking it because I was having trouble with the level of anxiety I was feeling on a daily basis.
I was also very quick to anger and had trouble letting things go. Since taking this all of these issues have been reduced significantly.
I feel much more relaxed and less stressed then before.This effects were noticeable immediately on day one.

Ive been struggling with depression for almost 10 years now, and have taken all kinds of prescription meds that always made me tired and sick.I have been taking lumiday for only a couple of days and so far I love it! I can actually get out of bed and I can focus at work and on school now! The only thing I notice about it is that I'm having trouble falling asleep at night even tho I take them very early in the morning but I don't really mind because I still feel rested when I wake up.
I seriously feel that everyone should be required to take it, the world would be a much nicer place!! Good luck to everyone and I hope lumiday works for you the way it works for me! Stay positive! Oh ps they need to lower the price!!! A LOT!

I'm not a doctor.I don't know what to label Lumiday as.
I have dealt with the side effects of MS treatments for years.Side effects such as; severe body aches, lack of motivation, fatigue, and anxiety.
I live with chronic pain, nerve and muscle spasms due to the MS.My neurologist prescribed Cymbalta to counteract the side effects of the treatments and help with chronic pain.
Taking NSAIDs for Headaches, backache, and other pain is a big "No-No" with Cymbalta and other antidepressants.If I had to take Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc. I would bleed a lot if cut or scraped.
Bruising was common! Last November, the lining of my stomach tore in two places and I ended up in the emergency hospital to have repairs done to stop the bleeding.
My doctor explained that I had no ulcer.
My stomach lining had become less pliable and tore, probably from a hard cough or sneeze.Possible cause?
A bit mysterious..., possibly from a fairly common virus (I cannot remember the name of).
However, I became suspicious of all my treatments and medications.
The "Interferons" I had to take for treatment of the MS causes severe aches, anxiety, lack of energy, and an induced depression.I was never a typically depressed person.
My career was one of much stress and responsibility.I handled it very well.
Taking Antidepressants was not my idea of "fun"! I always felt the "chemical" side effects of such meds.
I tapered off the Cymbalta around Christmas and New Years.
Seeing an ad for Lumiday, I thought I would try it. After the initial "Free Supply", I felt it just may be helping, so I accepted the first 30 day order.
It didn't take much longer to realize that Lumiday was MUCH more effective than the Cymbalta, and I didn't feel the "chemical" side effects or the horrible dry mouth anymore.
My symptoms of anxiety and "depression" are/were mostly induced by the MS, and a consequence of the needed treatments.
I am back to my "Old Self" .....,active, sleeping better, calm, joyful, and enjoy being around people again.I still live with the difficulties of MS.
I will say, the quality of my life is much improved over the commercial pharmaceuticals I was having to take!
Oh, yes..., one last note: I am disabled and live on a fixed income.My budget doesn't allow for too many extra expenses.
I called the Lumiday customer service personnel.They are so very courteous and willing to help.
I did get a small, but helpful adjustment which enables me to afford the Lumiday much easier than the co-pay that the prescription of Cymbalta was costing me.
I also live alone and cannot afford to be "lethargic" or stressed with anxiety by any sense of the word! The commercial pharmaceuticals were not as efficient against those symptoms and the co-pay was ridiculous and the cost to my insurance was a serious crime in itself!
Is it an Antidepressant?I cannot answer that.
Does it Ease Stress, Promote Positive Mood, Encourage Relaxation, and Support Emotional Well-Being?
ABSOLUTELY YES on all counts.
NOTE: Be patient! Like the Commercial Pharmaceuticals, they take time for your body's natural brain and other systems to react and adjust, enabling the Lumiday to do what you would expect it to.
Thank You To The Makers of Lumiday!
Thank You to Their Customer Service Staff!

This may have been specific to me, but I will tell you that although it worked while on it, I crashed hard and went beyond my previous depression point once off the medication.The cost was prohibitive (and not covered by insurance), so I stopped taking it.
I have so far had three really bad days in a row (stopped 3 days ago).Again, it may have been specific to me, but the effects afterwards really have me wishing I had not started taking it all.

Will this interfere with birth control pills as some studies have shown that St. John's wort can -Elaine
