Everyone experiences depression at some point in their life. It’s inevitable. It’s part of what makes us human.
When depression hits, you need to proactively treat it.
Use Turmeric To Fight Depression
If you have depression and don’t want to take prescriptions pills like Prozac that cause side effects such as “suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders,” then turmeric might just be what you’re looking for.
In a study published in Phytotherapy Research, researchers found that ingesting 1,000mg of curcumin (in two divided doses of 500mg) each for six weeks proved to be just as effective at treating depression than the common anti-depressant drugs currently on the market.
Turmeric Is Hands Down Better
The biggest difference here is that turmeric doesn’t cause you to have any “suicidal thoughts” and instead offers a handful of proven health benefits:
- protects the brain from inflammation and fluoride
- helps the brain heal itself
- improves absorption of plant-based omega-3s (ALA)
How To Take Turmeric For Depression
Turmeric contains approximately 2 percent curcumin by weight, so a tablespoon of turmeric, which weighs 6.8 grams, contains about 0.136 gram curcumin, or 136mg.
Since turmeric contains very small concentrations of curcumin look for standardized 95% curcumin (curcuminoids) supplements.
Then, using these supplements, simply crack them open and add its contents to your smoothies.
Always make sure that your smoothies incorporate the basic ingredients needed to maximize curcumin absorption:
- a source of healthy fat
- black pepper (piperine)
Combine this natural solution with 30 minutes of light exercise for best results.
