This section is dedicated to supplements and vitamins often used by sufferers of mild to moderate depression. Medical and FDA Disclaimers Below.
Note: We are NOT recommending ANYONE change any medication they are on for anxiety or depression. THESE ARE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM OTHER DEPRESSION SUFFERERS. This website is specifically geared to long-term sufferers that are looking to try new things. There ARE holistic-friendly physicians and therapists that will suggest supplements along with therapies and medications. Consider this section a tool to help you explore your options, talk to your physician, and make good choices. As always, MEDICAL and FDA DISCLAIMERS BELOW.
Anti-Fog / alert / energy booster supplements
The following is a VERY generalized overview of the supplements below.
For the sleep-deprived: Try the “Relaxing supplements.” Anti-depression supplements tend to relax the body through either muscle relaxing, anti-inflammatory or circulatory properties.
Getting too much sleep due to depression: If you find yourself getting too much sleep, the “anti-Fog / alert / energy booster supplements.” They are located below the serotonin boosters.
The serotonin boosters lie somewhere in-between the two above for many.
Again these are notes from other sufferers. Very generalized.
A lot of these herbals can be combined into a tea. Please check out our Teas section.
