Submitted by:

Clinical trials for turmeric, or its component curcumin, have shown it to be effective as a standalone treatment for depression, or in combination with pharmaceutical antidepressant medications. It is safe to take alone or with antidepressants, and it's safe for breastfeeding moms. Take a turmeric supplement with 95% curcuminoids at a dose of 500-1000mg, twice per day. It can be taken indefinitely alone, or combined with other supplements that improve mood, such as St John's Wort, magnesium glycinate, and adaptogenic herbs.
