ironmanmagazine.comCircumen, an active compound in the spice turmeric, may help heal depression. According to the January ’14 Prevention, just 1,000 milligrams a day “proved to be just as effective at treating depression as fluoxetin, the antidepressant better known as Prozac.”

HCl supplements can help fend off heartburn. How can taking an acid supplement lessen the burn? According to the September/October ’12 Well Being Journal, “While excess acid can indeed cause burning sensations in the GI tract, it is very rare for the body to produce too much acid, and heartburn symptoms can result from too little acid.”

Tryptophan may take the edge off. In the article “Better Brain Chemistry With Tryptophan” that appeared in the May/June ’13 Life Extension, it was noted that “in studies of adults who are self-described as ‘quarrelsome,’ 1,000 milligrams of tryptophan three times a day produced significant increases in measures of agreeableness and agreeable behaviors and decreases in quarrelsomeness.” Got ’roid rage? Take tryptophan.
