Fight depression with these 15 tips you can use today

Depression comes in many forms and is experienced differently from one individual to the next.

The common "anti-depressant" drugs (SSRIs) attempt to change how the brain uses serotonin, but this singular mode manipulation often leads to more serious consequences. Serotonin levels are only an indicator, just a symptom. The root problems of depression often go ignored.

History behind the ancient and powerful Maca

Maca, or Lepidium meyenii, is an herbaceous biennial plant from the Peruvian Andes and Bolivia. It is used as a root vegetable and medicinal herb. Used by the Andean people for more than 2,000 years, its rich history includes being used as a currency during the Incan empire due to its value for enhancing energy and libido. It is still sold in Peru today, and marketed for building strength, promoting stamina, improving sexual function, and enhancing fertility. Its fibre content also means it is used as a laxative.
