Alert: Weird Flower STOPS Depression & Anxiety!

We all know what it’s like to feel bogged down or strung out, but if you’re struggling with something stronger than that… be it sadness, lack of interest, constant worry, or crushing fear and stress 

 It might be time to face the facts. You’ve got depression… or you’ve got anxiety… 

Heck, you might have BOTH… 

And unfortunately, mainstream docs can’t help you. 

All they do is throw meds at the problem, piling on more and more ineffective antidepressants and anxiety drugs – pills that not only DON’T WORK but cause side effects like weight gain, loss of libido, and more. 

It’s a terrible situation, and I know that it might seem hopeless 

But today, I’m back with a safe way out. 

According to an all-new study, a team of American and Jordanian researchers have uncovered an answer for debilitating mood disorders… a weird-looking plant that RELIEVES anxiety and ERASES depression 

And the best part? 

This potent mood-booster may even improve your MEMORY! 

Let me tell you about milk thistle. 

Also known as Silybum marianum, milk thistle is a spiky flowering plant native to Asia and Southern Europe… but most research revolves around a substance called silymarin, a mix of multiple compounds that’s extracted from the plant’s dried fruits and leaves. 

Recent research has shown silymarin to be a potent liver-protective agent that helps defend the organ from toxic chemotherapy and regenerate its cells… 

And now, we’ve got undeniable PROOF that silymarin can relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety! 

In the study, published in Planta Medica just this year, researchers induced post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a population of lab rats and treated them with 100 mg/kg of silymarin every day for four weeks, gauging the rodents’ levels of anxiety and depression (which are a hallmark of PTSD). 

They also observed the rats in a series of maze and behavioral tests… 

And the results were IMPRESSIVE. 

Per the report, silymarin was shown to: 

  • REVERSE PTSD-triggered long-term memory impairments, 
  • IMPROVE symptoms of anxiety, and 
  • DECREASE depressive symptoms in the rats! 

Plus, researchers note that other studies have linked silymarin to positive effects on neurodegenerative and mood-disrupting conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.  

The current study didn’t propose a reason for these effects, but past research suggests it may come from the substance’s potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. 

Look for silymarin and milk thistle supplements at your local health food store or vitamin shop – or hop online to see a variety of options. Thanks to silymarin’s rising popularity and proven benefits, many retailers – including Swanson, Life Extension, and iHerb – have started to carry it.
