In our search for a cure, we discovered and used the following herbs for depression...
Green Tea (Theanine)
Yes! Green Tea is an excellent herb for depression as it relaxes you. Since ancient times, we've heard this. The substance that is responsible for this sense of relaxation, is called theanine. Theanine is a unique amino acid found almost solely in tea plants and the main component responsible for the exotic taste of `green' tea.
Most Japanese people take several cups of green tea every day to relax, welcome guests, or chat with friends. Theanine is the main amino acid in green tea which affects emotions by interacting with neurotransmitters in the brain and is, therefore, a natural herb for depression.
Not only does theanine encourage relaxation but it also has a significant effect on memory and learning ability.
Suntheanine is a patented form of Theanine which gives the body a sense of relaxation without inducing drowsiness.
Based on the results of research, taking between 50 and 200 mg of Theanine causes relaxation.
If you live in a busy city, work at a demanding job, commute through tons of traffic, you'll need to try Green Tea! Even if you are a stay at home mom with 2 boys, this could work too (after all this is the ultimate stressed day!)
Suntheanine is an effective herb for depression because it is a way of linking food ingredients to make people feel relaxed.
Suntheanine herbs for depression has been used in candies, herb tea, cocoa drinks, beverages, chocolates, puddings, jellies, chewing gums, and other foods for its relaxation effect.
Ask your doctor about herbs for depression including Theanine and Suntheanine.
