As we enter the last months of the year, and the days get shorter, it is not unusual to start feeling down. Low morale, melancholy, lack of interest, gloom and imbalances of all kinds become part of everyday life. To avoid falling into depression it is best to take action, and natural solutions are at hand to help.
What is low morale?
Low morale is a state of despondency characterised by a general negative feeling, a loss of desire and joie de vivre, uneasiness, sadness and mental fatigue. It mostly comes without warning, and suddenly makes everyday life more of a burden, more difficult and complicated. But don't panic. The decline in morale is only temporary and the best thing to do is to get rid of it as soon as possible to regain your energy, vitality and a better mental balance.
How do you beat the blues the natural way?
With turmeric! Turmeric is not merely trending these days, it’s a precious support for our mental balance. Turmeric rhizome extract has been used for a long time in Asia and is valuable for rebalancing mood disorders. Many scientific studies have shown that it has a positive influence on morale, given the optimal absorption of its active ingredients, known as curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and didemethoxycurcumin). It is therefore essential to go for quality, and a standardised turmeric rhizome extract, such as the food supplement Kwalitis, can offer good results. This supplement contains 100% natural standardised turmeric extract. Studies show, for example, that a natural extract of curcuma longa BCM-95 works effectively, with a 75% response rate on mood balance*, while being completely safe.
