Antioxidants in mental health problems,


In case of severe mental illness, treatment with psychotropic drugs is usually indispensable. However, taking these medications is often associated with serious side effects on the entire nervous system.


The gift of antioxidants is a useful, accompanying form of therapy for mental illnesses. Depending on the severity of a mental illness, it can be done as a monotherapy, but also as an accompanying form of therapy. Targeted therapy with micronutrients not only improves the messenger metabolism and energy metabolism, but also the antioxidant capacity.
For optimal therapy with vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids, a laboratory analysis is recommended. Based on the analysis it can be determined which minerals and vitamins have to be added.




Antioxidants in depression,


Depression is usually treated with antidepressants, although not always an improvement occurs. In long-lasting depression, the persons affected are known to be susceptible to secondary diseases, so they often suffer from an infection susceptibility, and they succumb more often to a stroke.
There is an association between depression and oxidative stress.
Based on the hypothesis of Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, high-dose vitamins can be an effective means of suppressing psychosis and helping to heal depression.


Pauling recommended the use of niacin (= vitamin B3) and vitamin C in mental illnesses. He himself took high doses of vitamin C and became 93 years old. Recent research also confirms his assumptions in the field of cancer prevention by vitamins. The scientist recommended taking vitamins in high doses, because most of these vital substances are not only essential for physiological functions, but they also act as antioxidants. They prevent the development of cancer and suppress inflammation.
It has also been repeatedly observed that vitamin C can bring about a clear alleviation of the mental symptoms.




Antioxidants in degenerative brain disorders


Numerous aging processes are influenced by free radicals. With antioxidants can therefore extend the life span. Free radicals are involved in diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, cancer and degenerative brain diseases. Especially in Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's, free radicals play a role.


Oxidative stress leads to aging and chronic diseases. Example: According to a Basel study, people with good vitamin C supply have a lower risk of heart attack and stroke.


It is generally accepted that the consumption of fruits and vegetables leads to less cancer. When given over a long period of time, vitamin antioxidants prevent childhood diseases (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's) and delay the aging process.
