My son (20 years old) was depressed, he couldn't cope with some life issues (which quite frankly, seemed normal to me). I had read about Inositol and its ability to help with depression; he has been taking it now for three weeks and one day he said: "I don't know what you're giving me, but all I know is that I feel so much better and though I've had some problems, I've been able to deal with them and not get so sad, upset and in a black hole, like before. I've been taking it too and I can testify that my son is right! I just love this product, it works! I mix the 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon with two once of juice. The power has a sweet taste.
