Often, those that suffer from depression are good at not publicizing it. This makes it rather challenging for others around those living with various types of depression to be aware of the telltale symptoms to help them get treatment for their loved ones. Of course seeing a professional therapist is often the best way to address the signs of depression, but there are tons of other new variations of treatment gaining praise such as the use of supplements.
SAMe is one of the supplements that is a popular option for those who have tried commonly prescribed serotonin reuptake inhibitors and not had a ton of success. SAMe has been noted to cure lots of ailments including depression, and has been a prescription medicine in Europe for over 40 years.
Some others to try are Methylfolate, Omega 3, and Vitamin D. Omega 3’s are easy to take in a supplement, or through certain foods such as fish. These work rather quickly too, as many have implemented small changes such as increasing their vitamin D and noticing a huge difference.
