4 Natural Remedies to Help Combat Depression!

How To Combat Depression Naturally!

 

Depression is real!

The effects of depression can be mild to severe depending on the person and their situation. Here are 4 natural remedies to boost your brains ability to combat depression.

  • St. John’s wort — Many studies show this herb is as effective as antidepressants for mild to moderate depression, and with far fewer and much milder side effects. St. John’s wort is 20 times as popular as Prozac for depression treatment in Germany, and has been referred to as a “natural Prozac alternative.” Its ability to treat major depression has been disputed, but research shows it can, in fact, help many people with this more severe form of depressive illness.
  • SAMe (S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine) — pronounced “sam-EE”, this nutrient supports our internal production of several neurotransmitters. SAMe enhances moods, relieves joint pain, and is also a building block for one of our body’s key antioxidants. It can be taken alone for a mood lift or combined with St. John’s wort.
  • 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) — In addition to relieving depression, this nutrient also has a calming effect. If taken prior to bedtime, it can improve sleep or help insomnia. Research also indicates 5-HTP reduces anxiety, helps migraine headaches, aids weight loss, and even improves fibromyalgia.
  • DLPA (DL-Phenylalanine) — this form of the amino acid phenylalanine is a natural painkiller and precursor to the same neurotransmitters addressed by antidepressants such as Wellbutrin. DLPA can be helpful for those with trouble concentrating, feelings of fatigue, or problems getting motivated in the morning. A caution, however: DLPA can be too stimulating for some people.
