Inevitably, mental health is an issue that affects almost the entire population, to a greater or lesser extent. What we do observe is that it is a taboo subject and that it is rarely talked about openly.
We are aware that we all go through better and worse moments in our lives, and that is why, when formulating our mixes, we have chosen ingredients that encourage and help us take the adversities of life better.
Today we want to talk to you about turmeric, the main ingredient in the “Healing Dose” mix .
Depression is a mental illness that affects many individuals.
Our goal is to change the medical focus on its treatment.
Instead of stressing and trying to resolve the result of depression, ie the chemical imbalance, we want to address the trigger of this condition in the first place, ie inflammation in the body.
Inflammation can be caused, among other things, by poor nutrition, lack of sleep and therefore the lack of regeneration of the body, by stress or by a traumatic event.
The component curcumin is a natural antidepressant and anti-inflammatory for the body and is key to keeping inflammation under control.
Among many other activities, it helps to modulate and improve the production of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, thus making us feel happier.
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory power, it not only lifts your mood, but much more importantly, it helps stop inflammation in the body, and therefore prevents the body from triggering depression.
