Natural anxiety and depression treatment

Depression has become an epidemic in today’s modern world. Obviously, the fast pace of modern life and the financial pressures of recent years are taking their toll but much of our lack of resilience is due to poor diet. Our reliance on processed and refined foods has resulted in many health issues, some of which are just beginning to be uncovered. However, instead of fixing our dietary deficiencies, most people go to the doctor and get synthetic medications to make them feel better. Unfortunately, these “feel better” pills do nothing to fix the underlying issues.

Today’s typical diet is doing a lot of damage to us every day but people are slow to make the connection. Our bodies and how we process nutrients is extremely complex and science has barely scratched the surface in how it all works. We do know that there are many nutrients besides vitamins and minerals that are needed to not only survive but maintain optimal health. Science is discovering every day new ways in which these various nutrients and sub-nutrients work together and interact to create new substances. Many of these interactions are turning out to be responsible for all sorts of brain functions that affect our mental health.

One process that has been noted to play a part in depression is known as methylation. This is the process with which certain natural chemicals known as methyl groups interact and combine with protein building blocks and DNA. The ,methylation process even influences our genes so that if our methylation system is properly functioning, our bodies can reduce the effects of aging that we normally see.

One chemical found in the brain is serotonin which science has already shown that a deficiency in this substance can greatly contribute to depression. We now know that this substance must be methylated in order to remain active. Another substance that is important to mood is homocysteine, a by-product of the amino acid methionine. Methylation is what converts the homocysteine back to methionine and without this happening, your body will experience severe health effects including dementia, liver disease and depression.

Clearly, methylation is an important process that must be in optimal condition for good health. With today’s diets being so processed, many of the amino acids we need are either missing or changed. That is because most amino acids are damaged by processing, particularly anything with heat such as cooking. Manufacturers of highly processed foods will add some vitamins and minerals back into the food but not in the range needed. If you, like most people today, are not eating a very natural, fresh foods diet on a regular basis, you will benefit from supplementation in the substances that are lacking in your diet.

Neuro-Natural Serenity has been specially formulated to deal with the lack of important nutrients and provide support to the substances in the brain that contribute to a feeling of wellbeing. It has been shown to be a very effective, natural treatment for anxiety and depression in many people. It also is a good safeguard for those who are not depressed but are prone to bouts of anxiety and depression.

The supplement has 43 separate active ingredients that work alone as well as interacting with each other to be the most effective product available on the market. There are not only vitamins and minerals but herbal extracts, amino acids and enzymes. Many of these substances work synergistically to act together in ways that they could not separately. Since many of the delicate nutrients and enzymes are easily destroyed, the tablets are enteric coated to be sure that they are released when they are supposed to be, in the large intestines, where they can be best absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

All of the active ingredients in Neuro-Natural Serenity have been chosen for the proven action that they have on brain function and wellbeing. One of these is SAMe which is a methyl group donor that contributes to many chemical reactions in the body. The substance appears to help with depression by increasing the availability of serotonin and dopamine – both key neurotransmitters found in the brain. It also has the fringe benefit of reducing the pain of arthritis and may help with liver disease.

Other beneficial ingredients include chamomile, grape seed, ginkgo biloba and green tea – all proven to have mood enhancing properties. Unlike most supplements on the market, Neuro-Natural Serenity also has several vital amino acids that enable the body to process proteins appropriately as well as other crucial activities within the body. One substance included has come to light fairly recently and that is resveratrol. This substance does many things including protecting from free radical damage, cancer prevention and relief from menopausal symptoms.

The solution to all the world’s ills may not lie in good nutrition but we are finding more and more that are directly and indirectly related to our dietary deficiencies. Rather than take very expensive synthetic medications that may make us feel better but do nothing to alleviate the underlying causes, Neuro-Natural Serenity has the nutritional support we need for crucial brain functions and our body’s natural mood enhancing processes.
