[Alert] Those Antidepressants Are KILLING You

Remember when Big Pharma told us that antidepressants would make our lives better?

What a crock of GARBAGE that turned out to be. 

Docs are handing out these pills like candy… and it’s a scientific FACT that they don’t work for most people. 

Instead, they make you gain weight… kill your libido… cause constipation and nausea… and sometimes make your depression WORSE! 

Now, it turns out that antidepressants could be shaving YEARS off of your life. 

Here’s what you need to know about these poison pills… before they send you or someone you love to an early grave. 

A shocking new study from McMaster University in Canada has found that antidepressants may actually be KILLING us. 

The team analyzed research from 16 medical studies and databases including 375,000 patients.

And the results were nothing short of horrifying. 

Research showed that taking antidepressants raises your risk of premature death by 33 percent.

Additionally, antidepressant users are 14 percent more likely to suffer a stroke or heart attack.  

And it doesn’t matter what kind of antidepressant you take – both serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and tricyclic antidepressants resulted in the same risk of early death. 

SSRIs, in particular, “work” by blocking the reuptake of serotonin, your brain’s “feel good” chemical. 

People with mood disorders often do not produce enough serotonin on their own and SSRIs keep what serotonin they do have in circulation.  

But it turns out that SSRIs and other antidepressants disrupt other processes in the brain – and that can trigger a laundry list of serious diseases. 

Right now, one in every ten Americans is taking an antidepressant. So these drugs may be sending MILLIONS of people to early graves. 

Instead of relying on Big Pharma, try some of these natural alternatives to combat depression. 

  • 5-hydroxytryptophan, also known as 5-HTP, boosts serotonin levels rather than redirecting your natural supply.
  • Probiotics help with mood disorders because the nerve cells in your gut manufacture 80 to 90 percent of our body’s serotonin – which is more than your brain makes! 
  • Magnesium is a crucial mineral for stress management, emotionally and biologically. However, many of us have a deficiency due to the way stress, caffeine, and sugar deplete our natural magnesium levels. 

And, of course, a healthy diet and regular exercise boost your brain function and reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
