About 300 million people around the world are suffering from depression, according to the World Health Organization. The so-called “Burn-out” syndrome is nothing more than exhaustion depression. Depression becomes more and more a widespread disease. Depression is the umbrella term for a change in mood, wellbeing and attitude towards life. The most important symptoms are: listlessness, lack of initiative, sleeplessness, hypochondriac disorders and anxiety. Known causes are a lack of the neurotransmitters dopamine, adrenaline and serotonine. “Depression is a lack of energy in the brain” (Prof. Walther Birkmayer, 1991). This lack of energy and the deficit in neurotransmitters can be resolved with NADH (Coenzyme-1). NADH is the coenzyme form of Niacin. A study showed that NADH can help with depression. In this study 205 people suffering from depression received a daily dose of 10 mg NADH over a period of 6 months. 93% of the participants showed improvement of symptoms up to 43%. Some described an improved emotional state after only 5 days of treatment. Others felt improvement after 4 weeks. Since 1991 thousands of people have taken NADH on a regular basis over an extended amount of time and reported positive effects on mental and physical states of exhaustion (fatigue).
