it also helps alot if you have a short description of what the links are about. i have noticed that depression is rampant in this board. the shear negativity almost makes you want to leave this board. rite now i will talk about the chemical ways of making you feel better. all discussed over here is legal otc medication that as far as im concerned, does not produce adverse effects. this is my personal experience and is by no means a promise that the product may work for you the same way it has worked for me. here you go, these are what i have found to be the most effective supplements in empowering me. Notice this has not been a direct variable inhelping me deal with depression, but an indirect one. Depression is a problem of perspective, does not matter whether you have all the chemistry set in place, if you perspective is skewed you will not be able to defeat depression.
1. vinpocetine: nootropic, increases metabolism in brain. this link closely resembles what I have found about it:
in summary, vinpo increases bloodflow in brain. my real world experience is that it allowed me to increase my creativity, critical thinking skills. i take a dosage of 10mg 3xday. I started with 5mg a day and noticed results. I progressively built up to 10mg
2. piracetam: nootropic, believed to increase hemispheric communication in the brain, in other words allows you to come up with more AHA! moments. This link talks a little more in depth about the supplement, but does not have enough info:
For me, it improved my memory recall, gave me insight. However, it must be taken with a source of choline, otherwise you will feel tired. My source of choline is lecithin, I take 1.6g piracetam and 2.4g lecithin. I am still building tolerance for this supp, and I cycle it. Which means, I take the supp for some weeks, then I stop for 1-2 weeks, and repeat.
For these supps, I recommend to never take them if you are going to bed within 4 hrs as it may increase your risk of insomnia.
I believe that for one to beat depression and anxiety, it is necessary to adopt a bio(supplements nutrition exercise), psycho(positive affirmations, motivational media, goal setting, etc.) point of view. Otherwise, you may at best decrease the effects of such recovery. If nothing else, at least work on your psycho component.
i will write more soon. hopefully about psy component, which was pivotal in my recovery.
