Natural ways to fight depression.
Maca (Lepidium meyenii), also known as "Peruvian ginseng," is a root vegetable that is packed with amino acids, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Like the other herbs mentioned, it has long been used in traditional medicine to increase energy and stamina, enhance libido, and boost the immune, adrenal, and endocrine systems.
In a 2008 study published in the journal Menopause, researchers found that maca helps reduce anxiety and depression symptoms in women with menopause And in a 2006 study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers found that maca clearly exhibits general antidepressant activity in all people when consumed.

Maca is used for “tired blood” (anemia); chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); and enhancing energy, stamina, athletic performance, memory, and fertility. Women use maca for female hormone imbalance, menstrual problems, and symptoms of menopause. Maca is also used for weak bones (osteoporosis), depression, stomach cancer, leukemia, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, erectile dysfunction (ED), to arouse sexual desire, and to boost the immune system.
My experience with Maca
I've been using Healthworks Organic Raw Maca Powder for 1 month now and I can really see a difference. I feel more energized, I have better moods, I don't feel tired all day and I seem to have less bad days. It really has helped me so far. I mix it in with my smoothies, and tea, I also make Hot maca Chocolate with tea which is really good. I only use 2 tsp a day and I can honestly say I feel much better since taking it.
I also Meditate everyday for at least 15 minutes with deep breathing.
