Curcuma against anxiety and depression
Studies have shown that turmeric can be useful against anxiety and depression. This spice can help balance the serotonin, dopamine, glutamate and norepinephrine. It stimulates the production of glutathione, which is an essential antioxidant for brain health. According to research, turmeric can help heal the damage caused by heavy metals. Studies have also confirmed that turmeric protects the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and adrenal glands from oxidative damage.
One study led by psychologist Adrian L. Murray. Lopristi aimed to determine the effect of turmeric and saffron on the effects of antidepressants. These spices have been shown to be as effective as medicines without side effects. Respondents (most suffered from depression for more than 5 years and took antidepressants) consumed these spices for 5 to 12 weeks. It was noted that there was improvement in symptoms. Curcumin has also been shown to help with anxiety. The psychologist, from this study concluded that the impact of curcumin is impressive!
Curcuma helps against inflammation that is common in people with depression
Recent studies have confirmed the anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric. People who used 1000 mg of turmeric within 6 months had lower levels of inflammatory cytokines – interleukin-1β and TNF-α in the blood. This is a very important finding, because inflammation is associated with many mental states. It is good to know that turmeric helps increase focus and cognitive abilities. A study by psychologist Lopristi found that curcumin works better in atypical depression. People with this type of depression are susceptible to rejection. They feel better when there are positive things in their lives and may have an increased appetite. These symptoms are not present in typical depression. People who suffer from atypical depression are more likely to suffer from inflammation than those who suffer from typical depression. Therefore, the anti-inflammatory power of curcumin is more effective in atypical depression. Curcumin and saffron increase serotonin and dopamine levels, important substances in the brain, which are usually low in depressed people. The good side of these spices is that they relieve anxiety because they reduce the secretion of cortisol, which is an important stress hormone.
