Can vitamins really help with depression?

 Yes. For some individuals, it may actually be as simple as taking a particular vitamin to end their depressive episode(s). Certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been shown to influence cognitive functioning; sparking alterations in one's mental and emotional well-being. What's more, some of these vitamins, namely B-vitamin compounds, are easily destroyed by alcohol, refined sugars, nicotine, and caffeine. Increased stress, injury, and/or pregnancy may also warrant an increased intake of certain depression-fighting nutrients. Listed below are the common vitamins and minerals known to influence depression, as well as those needed during periods of stress and injury:

  • B-Vitamin compounds, including folic acid

  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese
  • Zinc

I don't sleep much. Can a lack of sleep cause depression?

 A lack of sleep is not thought to be a direct cause, but it may play a role in aggravating the symptoms in persons already diagnosed with depression. Studies show that sleeplessness caused by another medical illness or personal problems can intensify depression if a person is at-risk. Persons most susceptible to such sleep-based triggers include those with (or suffering from):

 

  • A family history of depression
  • Social isolation problems (exclusion from family and friends)
  • A loss of a loved one through death, divorce, or separation
  • Interpersonal disputes
  • Histories of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse
  • Significant life events (e.g. graduation, retirement, etc)
  • Serious and terminal illnesses
  • Substance abuse
  • Grief over the loss of a loved one through death, divorce, or separation.
  • Interpersonal disputes.
  • Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse

I was wondering if there is such a thing as childhood depression. My child is acting very differently.

Yes, there is a plethora of data confirming the presence of depression in the child population. Many people forget that children are powerless and have limited control over their lives. Yet, they too face extreme stressors. However, stress in a child's life is far different from the daily stressors we experience. Having gone through childhood, adults should recognize that the ability to fit in (peer acceptance), sports, grades, as well as instructor, coach, and parental expectations are greater than ever before. This trouble-free period in your child's life is not as carefree as it may seem. Therefore, any change in behavior that has no physical or external cause should be cause for alarm and addressed by a specialist. [top]

 


I know that dietary supplementation can be beneficial, but are there any other alternatives methods my family member can try?

There are a variety of alternative therapies that patients may use to cope with depression. However, it should be noted that persons with depression should always try to adhere to a sound diet and regular exercise program before being any alternative therapy. Examples of these therapies include; acupuncture, guided imagery, chiropractic, yoga, hypnosis, biofeedback training, aromatherapy, meditation, and certain relaxation techniques. As always, Progressive Health recommends that you consult with your physician to see if these disciplines are a viable option for you, or if you have any lingering questions about these popular options. [top]

 


If I decide to order Exulin, are Progressive Health's products sent discreetly?

Yes; Progressive Health respects your privacy. All orders will be shipped in a plain, unmarked envelope with a return address from Progressive Health Nutraceuticals Inc. (For more information about our shipping and billing policies, see Shipping and Billing below) [top]


What results should I expect?

Every person's body chemistry is different and results vary. Some notice dramatic results within the first few days, others notice gradual differences over a period of time. The average time span for starting to achieve results reported by our customers is between 30-60 days of taking our products.

Due to the fact that our products are all-natural, there is no way to accurately determine the outcome of taking our products for every customer. Our products are made from herbs, vitamins and minerals, and you will achieve the greatest results when combined with a healthy diet and light to moderate exercise. [top]


Are there any side effects when taking Exulin?

As with all nutritional supplements, there is potential for reaction. Progressive Health ensures that all potential conflicts and side effects are listed on the product information pages. However, we strongly recommend consulting with your physician if you suffer from any pre-existing conditions (other than mild to moderate depression), known allergies, or if you are currently taking any medications. Based on customer feedback, order history, and regular product overview, there has yet to be a report of any serious side effects resulting from the implementation of Progressive Health products into existing treatment programs. [top]


Do I need to use this supplement forever?

As with any supplementation program, it is wise to keep using the products on a daily basis to maintain results. [top]
