(NaturalNews) A study published recently in Phytotherapy Research indicates that the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, has potential anti-depressant effects. This isn't the first study to suggest that turmeric may play a role in elevating our moods, but it is the first randomized controlled clinical trial of its kind.

"Researchers with the Department of Pharmacology of Government Medical College in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India compared the effects of turmeric and Prozac (fluoxetine), both used together and individually, in 60 patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD)."

The "suicidal" side effects of Prozac use

More than just a potential replacement for Prozac because of its efficacy, turmeric does not cause "suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders" which is a documented frightening side effect from taking Prozac.

Further potential health benefits of turmeric

Turmeric has also shown promise in the following areas according to some research papers: treatment of inflammatory conditions, diabetes, cancer, weight loss assistance, and slashing heart disease risk. It has been used topically for healing wounds and combating acne, and also as a natural painkiller.

For a raw food treat, sprinkle turmeric on dehydrated kale chips. Also, try adding it to freshly juiced greens or vegetables to get it directly into the bloodstream. Including it in salads can spice up the flavor and add some much needed super food nutrition.

Try this turmeric cocktail juice:

1 piece of turmeric root (or 1-2 tsp of ground turmeric powder)
1 whole cucumber
2 stalks celery
1 inch of ginger root
1 peeled lemon
