I've had some amazing experience boosting my B vitamins, calcium and magnesium. After crunching numbers I was amazed at how deficient I was and it explained a lot of my fatigue, sleeplessness, and yes - moodiness. A multivitamin is not a magic pill that will give you everything in its proper amount, and eating "healthy" usually will not either. The food we eat now is highly deficient in the vitamins we evolved to require for optimum health (cows and chickens are not supposed to eat pellets or other animals, and veggies are not supposed to be covered in pesticides). Humans are not supposed to exist on white flour and sugar either. Add in physical, environmental, and job related stresses and we're even more in the nutritional hole. When our bodies aren't getting what they need to function, the most subtle things go out of whack.
There are several books out there that can guide you towards what you should be getting, but you should also see a nutritionist to make sure you are balanced and don't overdose on too much of a "good thing".
