One Powerful Home Remedy To Treat Depression

Posted By:

Depression has become one of the most common mental ailments of today, thanks to the competitive lifestyle and the pressure that comes with it.

Most of us would know some one who has been suffering from depression, and it is not a simple disorder to deal with.

Many a times, people pass off depression as "just a phase" or think that it may be mood swings and do not seek help.

When depression is not treated at the right time, its symptoms may worsen and lead to fatal consequences.

Depression is caused by the depleted production of certain brain chemicals, namely dopamine and serotonin.

Recipe To Prepare The Natural Anti-Depressant

Ingredients Required:

  • Cashew nuts - 6-7
  • Honey - 1 tablespoon

Many research studies that have been conducted in the recent past have claimed that cashew nuts are extremely effective in treating depression. Cashews are rich in vitamin B6, which is found to be the key element that reduces depression.

Cashew nuts also have another compound known as tryptophan, which when combined with vitamin B6, boosts the production of serotonin and dopamine in the brain, thereby helping in the treatment of depression.

Tryptophan and vitamin B6 found in cashew nuts can also relax your nerves and keep anxiety and panic attacks at bay, with regular use.

Honey is added to this health potion to give it a good taste!
