Curcumin A Potentially Ideal Remedy For Major Depressive Disorder

Orlando, FL— April 11, 2016— Curcumin is a phytochemical found in the ancient spice, turmeric. It contains healing properties that are beneficial for the brain and body. This healing ingredient is widely believed to fight a range of conditions, including psychological problems.

Curcumin is a potentially ideal remedy for major depressive disorder (MDD). There are pharmaceutical drugs used to help sufferers fight MDD symptoms. However, according to research, curcumin has the potential ability to work better than these medications. It best advantage is that unlike these medications, it doesn’t cause side effects.

Individuals who suffer from sudden mood swings or unexplained irritability may be suffering from the condition. There are other symptoms such as lack of interesting in working or being with friends or having suicidal thoughts on a regular basis.

According to experts, there are factors that trigger the development of the condition such as stressful events, personality traits, adverse experiences, or genetic causes. To treat it, they believe that the high serotonin levels in the brain should be maintained.

While there are pharmaceutical drugs used for the condition, their use has become a source of a widespread scare. These medications produce side effects, which are an unnecessary and additional burden for sufferers. The good news is that curcumin is thought to have the ability to increase the brain’s serotonin levels.

Researchers conducted a studying involving 60 MDD sufferers. They were divided into three groups and the first were made to take a pharmaceutical medication typically used for the condition. The second group, on the other hand, received curcumin. The third took the combination of curcumin and the pharmaceutical drug.

After six weeks and with the use of the Hamilton Depression rating scale (HAM-D17), the researchers measured the depression levels. It was found that the combination group had the highest response, which was 77.8 percent. The group that received the drug had 64.7 percent while the curcumin group got 62.5 percent.

Researchers found curcumin to be a better alternative to medications because first, it has demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of the condition based on the study. Secondly, curcumin doesn’t cause side effects and this is especially an important consideration in choosing a remedy for depression.

Curcumin supplements are widely available today. Compared to turmeric powder, supplements are believed to have more content of curcumin, which makes them more therapeutic.
