You’re cruising along. Life is good. Then… BAM… you hit a wall.
Not a literal one, of course. You can’t SEE it. But you sure can FEEL it.
Nearly everyone hits that wall at some point, especially when you enter your senior years. Maybe your body isn’t working the way it used to, leaving you feeling frustrated. Or perhaps you lose a friend or loved one.
But something triggers those feelings of doom and gloom. And suddenly, it can feel like you’ve been sapped of your energy, robbed of your joy, and deprived of all the things you love.
Well, if that sounds familiar, and you’re locked in a fight with depression yourself, keep reading my friend. Because I’ve got something today that can help pull the clouds apart and leave you standing in the sun again, feeling like your old self.
Happy… carefree… and ready to ENJOY life to its fullest.
BEAT depression with this all-natural secret
This isn’t just a way to beat the blues.
It’s just about the simplest and most natural way out there to do it. Because new research reveals, you can get legit and lasting relief from a common vitamin that costs just pennies a day.
It’s humble vitamin D.
In the new study, vitamin D supplements were put to the test against a placebo in seniors with depression. In other words, the type of gold-standard clinical trial that’s used to get drugs approved.
Over eight weeks, the folks given the placebo saw depression scores increase.
But the ones who got the D dropped from 9.25 down to a 7.48.
That’s a 20 percent plunge, bringing them from right on the border of a more serious clinical depression and into the middle of something far more tolerable and easier to manage without meds.
Get even BIGGER mood-boosting benefits
Now that’s great. But I’m willing to bet we can make this even better.
First, these folks were given weekly D megadoses instead of a more sensible daily D supplement. They were given 50,000 IU per week or about 7,000 IU per day.
And second, their blood levels of D jumped as a result of those supplements.
But they weren’t quite ideal.
At the start of the study, the folks were just a hair above 20 ng/ml, the cut off for D deficiency. The supplements (but not the placebo) essentially doubled those levels to an average of 43.48 ng/ml.
That’s certainly better. But it’s BARELY in the optimal range, generally considered to be between 40 and 80 ng/mL.
So get your levels tested and then use a daily D supplement instead of a weekly dose to try to get your blood levels to at least 50 or 60. You may see even bigger mood-boosting benefits as a result.
And consider combining that D with other depression-fighting natural therapies, such as B vitamins and curcumin.
