When you experience any downturn in mood for any reason, you may be ordinarily sad or suffering already from depression. I’d like to think that there is casual depression, which can be easily cured by talking to a friend or a intimate partner or releasing your inner core of anxiety, disappointment, anger and deep sadness on paper. However, there are some people in reality who are depressed (to the max) who can’t treat their depression like so.
What these people have is clinical depression which should be cured by a professional psychologist and a medicinal practitioner. You have severe clinical depression if your bad mood interferes with your daily encounters and affects other people negatively.
There are countless of reasons of why you feel depressed regardless the type. But one thing is for sure: you have to regain energy and your ability to concentrate.
When you’re in a depressed state, your internal processes do not function as they should. Your hormones become imbalanced and this aggravates depression more. Sometimes you can’t even breathe well, and this makes up for the lack in oxygen to your brain.
When you tend to over-think about your problems with your complicated mindset, you most probably be inflicted with insomnia. Overall, your healthy body turns the other way around. Your state is undesirable.
Ask yourself this question:
“Have I taken ashitaba yet?”
But before that, you should know about ashitaba and its awesome effects to your body. You may read on other articles in this blog then proceed to the explanation below.
Ashitaba Stimulates the Nerve Growth Factor
Scientists at the Biomedical Group of Takara Shuzo Co Ltd have discovered that several compounds contained in Ashitaba (Angelica keiskei Koidzumi) enhance the production of the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF).
NGF is a protein essential in the development and survival of certain neurons in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It plays an important role in the smooth transition of signals along the nerves and from cells to cells. It aids neurotransmitters, effective in preventing and treating Alzheimer-type dementia and diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
Ashitaba contains Nerve Growth Factor stimulators which are essential proteins in the development and survival of certain neurons. This gives the light for NGF to relieve depression.
Chalcones in Ashitaba
Ashitaba (Umbelliferae or Angelica sinensis) contains potent chalcones that promote metabolism and the proper functioning of organs. You may be wondering about its relation with depression. This may be some trivia to you: When you have good metabolism in your system, your hormonal levels will be in perfect balance thus promoting your well-being and alleviating depression. The chalcones also helps you to sleep so you can gain energy, focus or concentration back.
If you are feeling normal, you can also take ashitaba (tomorrow leaves) daily to prevent yourself from being depressed.
