Did you know that Turmeric and Saffron are more effective than Prozac? According to a meta-analysis published in Human Psychopharmacology, saffron is a great  natural option for the treatment of mild-to-moderate depression. Saffron contains crocin and safranal, active components responsible for its antidepressant properties. One study found that anxiety was alleviated by simply smelling saffron. Saffron triggered salivary secretion and significantly decreased the physiological bio-markers for stress.

Curcumin, the main active ingredient of  turmeric, is best-known  for its anti-inflammatory properties. But researchers recently discovered how curcumin supplements can also act as effective natural antidepressants. The results of a randomized controlled trial comparing the safety and efficacy of curcumin to generic Prozac were published in the medical journal Phytotherapy Research. They found that a standardized curcumin extract had equal effects to the prescription drug fluoxetine (generic form of Prozac), without the nasty side effects.
