Turmeric Proven To Be More Effective Than Prozac For Depression (+ Lemonade Recipe)

Turmeric Proven To Be More Effective Than Prozac For Depression (+ Lemonade Recipe)

Written by: Kat Gal

Don’t let depression ruin your life. Turmeric can help with your depression symptoms and bring your lust for life back.

It is hard to believe that such a simple spice as turmeric can be so powerful for so many ailments.

Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antiviral and anti-fungal root that can lower your cholesterol, reduce inflammation, help with digestive issues, soothe arthritis and improve Alzheimer’s symptoms, just to name a few of its magical effects.

Turmeric is also known to improve symptoms of depression.

Popular pharmaceutical drugs for depression, such as Prozac, may help your symptoms with depression, but they also come with unwanted side effects, such as trouble sleeping, indigestion, weakness, dizziness and rashes being some of the more common side effects and stomach bleeding, difficulty breathing and even suicidal thoughts being less frequent, but more serious ones.

Thankfully, nature provides you with various options to help depression. The curcumin in turmeric has proven to be just as powerful as the fluoxetine in Prozac without unwanted side-effects.

One creative way to take turmeric is to make Turmeric Lemonade.

Turmeric Lemonade


  • 4 cups of cold water
  • 2 tbsp of turmeric (powdered or freshly grated)
  • 4 tbsp of honey or stevia
  • 1 lemon
  • Optional: juice from 1 blood orange

Instructions: Mix all ingredients. Serve it with a slice of lemon. The recipe makes 4 servings of lemonade.

Ideally you want to drink a cup of this every day and use turmeric in your diet in general. However, the easiest way to add turmeric to your everyday life is taking turmeric supplements. Try Organifi Daily Turmeric. Just 4 capsules a day can change your life.
