One of the most hated side effects of antidepressant medications is weight gain. Research has not been able to determine exactly why this is, but there are several theories. Our doctors believe the strongest theory is that the medications cause changes in hormones and brain chemistry in a way that increases cravings for carbohydrates. Antidepressant Companion was created with this in mind. We have included Saffron, a powerful medicinal spice, in the formulation to help control carb cravings. Additionally, we have incorporated nutrients that help to increase energy and stamina, such as B vitamins and CoQ10, to help you get more from your workouts.
But Antidepressant Companion doesn’t stop there! One of the impacts of increased carb intake is inflammation. Inflammation is highly correlated with most chronic diseases, including depression. Inflammation can work in a vicious cycle where you feel depressed and eat highly processed foods and refined, carbohydrates. Then you become inflamed and your body craves them more, which in turn can increase your depression and cravings further. Antidepressant Companion aims to help break that cycle with the inclusion of Turmeric. This powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory herb has been clinically shown to reduce inflammation, and improve symptoms of depression. In fact, it has been studied for use in conjunction with the antidepressant Prozac (1). Results showed that not only was it safe, but it significantly improved the effectiveness of the medication.
Antidepressant Companion works to help you function better as a whole person through targeted nutrition and powerful herbal support. With Antidepressant Companion, your weight loss goals are more achievable.
