Baby blues "virtually eliminated" with dietary supplement combo – Postpartum Depression



I am a huge fan nutritional intervention especially when it comes to certain things as postpartum depression or depression overall now in this case the few anomalies at the foot I don't particularly not a fan of like it's an open-label and as a cor conflict of interest involved but nevertheless it's promising it's simple and appears this point of time to be very safe let's get right into the study as it goes into it says as follows dietary supplement kit now these supplements are fairly common now this is going to be a patent when it's fully completed let's proceed forward kit created to counter mood altering brain changes linked to depression virtually this is their words eliminated the baby blues among women in a new study is Toronto Centre for Addiction and Mental Health they were carefully selected to compensate for a surge these are the supplements in the brain protein and a 0 dash a mono me knock seduce hey there's a reason for that which occurs in an early postpartum phase in which also resembles a brain change that persists for longer periods in clinical depression this is where it gets kind of interesting and eloquently simple at the exact same time both findings were discovered in previous brain imaging studies by dr. Myers group and a 0 model amine oxidase a breaks down three brain chemicals that help maintain mood serotonin norepinephrine and dopamine so keep in mind as mao-a rises it starts feeding and using up tons of serotonin or a nephron and don't be making you feel worse as your body goes two runs to it much faster when these chemicals are depleted it can lead to feelings of sadness and AOA levels peak five days after giving birth meaning that when that mayo a is the highest the serotonin or dopamine a norman efrain are to be used to fast for the most at the same time postpartum blues are the most pronounced the kit includes fan and tyrosine two very common amino acids which compensate the loss of the three mood regulating chemicals as well as a blueberry extract bluer Jews for antioxidant effects right into study parameters going to go kind of fast so we get to the meat of the actual results citation title for the researchers select a dietary supplement in early postpartum is associate with higher resilience against depressed mood do is as follows funding their to see a why they're going to go for patents on this just to keep in mind said if participants 41 healthy women study length three to five days those that your materials of the group that got the supplement it involved two grams of tryptophan and 10 grams of tyrosine air with blueberry juice or a blueberry extract control group got nothing now keep in mind anytime you have individual amino acids you run the risk of having what's called limiting amino acid or certain foods or supplements observed proteins which can inhibit the absorption so any path that you choose to go on this route please please with the assistance of a medical professional even though this formula will eventually come to market as a patented supplement for hospitals methods current study administrative by the research fellows and for the twenty woman who receive supplements and a comparison group of mothers who did not it was an open-label study meaning they needed to do the study again a double-blind preferably open label means people know who's getting what I'm not a fan of active involved or can have a placebo effect as well as leave it vulnerable to experiment a bias nevertheless it's still a nutritional intervention which I favor openly beside me the woman knew they were receiving nutritional supplements the supplements are taken over three days starting the third day after giving birth on postpartum depression tends to be start getting the worst on day five have to given birth want to be able to boost peak the woman underwent tests to assess the kids effects on mood you're gonna like this the tests included sad mood induction which measure the abilities for resilience against sad events the women ready to reflecting on statements with sentiments that express pessimism the satisfaction or the RG and then listen to a sad piece of classical music before and after this test researchers and measures of present symptoms will the test is kind of simple you get the idea results this important part the results were dramatic women who are not taking the supplements had a significant increase in depression scores in contrast women taking the dietary supplements to grab the tryptophan 10 grams of tyrosine in the blueberry juice or extract did not experience any depressed mood that is their quote and to follow up some of the best parts as you proceed since severe postpartum to blue is significantly hiking the risk of postpartum depression this supplement kit is anticipated to be an integral part of dietary supplement regimen regime orig Minh that health care providers could one day recommend wildly to prevent postpartum depression I'm a fan of nutritional intervention that's where i'm reading the study but even a better part the key ingredients the tryptophan and tyrosine we're shown not to affect a total concentration in breast milk so across the horizon or researcher says they want to get involved it looks like a simple nutritional intervention combining just a couple of amino acids to gram tryptophan 10 grams tyrosine blueberry extract or juice had a dramatic effect at least in this open-label study again needs to be replicated in a double-blind crossover see but preferably but extremely promising appears to be extremely safe and hopefully hopefully a great way of alleviating these postpartum depression or baby blues in the future again rafter Jana signing off I hope you find this information use and I always it forward to see you [Applause] you

  1. This was my favorite one yet Ralph! Your positive flow through the segment made it easy to digest the information. I always enjoy the nutritional studies more as well. When I was gifted a son a few years ago I attributed the postpartum to a increase in light to the pineal gland. As a result of my son saying hello to his mom throughout the night. My hunch being The sudden increase in hours of light the pineal received with the resultant contango effecting melatonin production. If the study proves to be true (fingers crossed) it would truly be a life altering one as the inability to enjoy the newborn fully and the helplessness of not being able to help your significant other were the only dark points of an altogether wonderful experience.

    Great Stuff
