When you’re feeling down or experiencing an afternoon slump, it’s tempting to reach for something to give a quick jolt. Too many times, we reach for what’s easy — a drink or snack that’s loaded with sugar. The problem with that? Besides flooding your bloodstream with these simple carbs, foods with added sugar can only make your mood or energy roller-coaster even worse — as you can experience more extreme ups and downs. Instead, try a tea made with turmeric. This anti-inflammatory herb has many benefits, including working as a natural antidepressant. Some research even suggests that it’s as powerful as some medication. It has a calming effect and boosts the brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters — serotonin and dopamine.
