It didn't really work for me.  It also interferes with regular medications, including contraceptives.  If you're depression is mild, it might work.  Mine wasn't.

Ok. Thx. I'm not taking any medications for anything.

I have no experience for this.

I was told that if you take it regularly, it can help prevent it. It is a mood enhancer.

You have to take it with other things and be sure your diet also matches, meaning that you're eating lots of living foods.  If you just take it alone it may not be as affective.  If you do a search for "natural remedies for depression" allot of info should come up
