Alternatives for the Growing Depression Trend

Recently, CTV news reported that in Ontario alone, more than 230,000 adults "seriously contemplated suicide" in 2013. This increased depression is also evidenced by the alarming rate addictions are increasing. Marijuana use is up, and so is alcohol use--more females are drinking than before. While traditional cigarette smoking is lower, with the rise of electronic cigarettes, consumers are still consuming nicotine.

We have a crisis on our hands in all age groups of society. The underlying issue still remains: people are not happy and are looking at external means in order to compensate. Drugs will never satisfy the emptiness; they only work temporarily to help forget the despair. Lives out of line need order and realignment through proper nutrition, natural medicine, and lots of love without judgement.    

We have several products that can help depression:


DMAE: DMAE has the ability to enhance brain functions at the higher level and can compensate for various neuropsychological deficits ranging from cognitive processes to aging itself. DMAE greatly reduces the lipofusion from brain and nerve cells and is able to cross the blood brain barrier. It has proven to be a safe alternative for such learning and behavior problems as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Hyperkinesias. Other conditions for which DMAE is useful are chronic fatigue, mild depression and confusion.

GABA: GABA is found throughout the central nervous system (CNS), assuming an ever-enlarging role as a significant influence for pain, stress, anxiety, depression as well as stress-induced illness. Before January 1995, there were over 2000 documents and texts on GABA, describing how it affects anxiety/stress in the brain and CNS.

Kava: Kava Kava is best-known as a ceremonial South Pacific beverage. The earliest European knowledge of Kava Kava dates back to the late 1700s, with the journeys of Captain Cook. Today, usage of Kava Kava beverages in tropical climates is similar to the use of alcoholic beverages in the West. However, the plant from which the beverage is made was found to have useful properties to aid anxiety, hyperactivity, stress, and restlessness. 


Neurotransmitter Support: Neurotransmitter Support is a feast for brains in need of restoration, providing the optimum combination to facilitate the transport of vital nutrients into brain cells, and assist in re-establishment of neuronal function. And it’s a healthy snack for an aging brain, as well, giving it all the essentials necessary to support our mood, memory, and cognitive abilities, which tend to slow down as the years pass by.

SAMe: SAMe is necessary in the manufacture of important brain compounds such as neurotransmitters and phospholipids like phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine. Supplementing the diet with SAMe in depressed patients results in increased levels of serotonin, dopamine, and phosphatidylserine. Life Choice™ SAMe is a stabilized liquid form which bypasses the need for absorption, and the standard of effectiveness is the same, if not better than, injectable SAMe. A recent study compared SAMe to the tricyclic desipramine. At the end of the 4-week trial, 62 percent of the patients treated with SAMe and 50 percent of the patients treated with desipramine had significantly improved. These results suggest that one of the ways tricyclic drugs exert antidepressive effects is by raising SAMe levels.


L-Tyrosine: Tyrosine is a precursor (a preceding part of a biological process) of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine, which regulate moods, among other things.  Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid, meaning that the body normally produces it.  It acts as a mood elevator: conversely, a lack of adequate amounts of tyrosine leads to a deficiency of norepinephrine in the brain, which in turn can result in depression.  Extra amounts of tyrosine in the diet may elevate brain levels of norepinephrine, improving neurotransmissions and doing away with depression.
