Depression is a difficult condition with which to go through life. Causes are multiple, including situational depression such as the loss of a loved one, deficiency of serotonin in specific brain areas, head trauma, other central nervous system diseases and chronic health problems in general. Selective serotonin uptake inhibitors are often helpful, but many times fail and side effects are often intolerable. Nutritional remedies are attractive from the standpoints that they:

  1. Are non-drug therapies
  2. May be treating the source of the problem rather than compensating for it
  3. Are natural
  4. Typically have none or fewer side effects than drugs
  5. Obviate the stigma of having to take a drug to feel normal
