The scientists found that grapes can be an effective antidepressant
Fresh grapes are delicious by itself, from grapes make wonderful wine, and if dried grapes - get the sweet raisins. But what other advantages carries a this berry is rich in history? Researchers from the School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have come to the conclusion that on the basis of grapes, you can create an effective and safe remedy for depression, which will have minimal side effects on human health.
Antidepressant can be created from the organic compounds contained in grape berries. Research scientists demonstrated that the grapes are not only has potent sedative effects on the human body, but is also capable of neutralizing some related nervous system depression. Depression is associated with a variety of external and internal factors, but most of it takes place in parallel with severe mental disorders. All this often leads to changes in the lymph nodes, inflammation of the peripheral immune system, as well as to a decrease in brain activity. All of this eventually leads to malfunction of synapses that allows neurons to communicate with each other. Existing anti-depression is mainly focused on the regulation of neurotransmitters - serotonin and dopamine, responsible for the transmission of electrochemical pulses. They allow you to improve the overall condition of the person and strengthen his brain activity, but the depression of man thus remains virtually unchanged. Scientists from the School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have come to the conclusion that because of the compounds contained in the grapes, you can create the most effective antidepressant. At the same time they do not exclude that the drug that can be manufactured with an eye to the human DNA, to take into account all the peculiarities of its body. The research results were published in the Journal of EurekAlert!
