CAN BE DELIVERED TO MAINLAND SPAIN.
We all know the phrase “When God gives you lemons, make lemonade.” But how exactly are we supposed to do that?
Do we really need a recipe book to learn how to make it? YES! In this soon-to-be-bestseller, Dr. Neil Farber, author of The Blame Game:
The Complete Guide to Blaming, reveals 101 recipes to make metaphorical lemonade. Making Lemonade is a guide to turning “bad” things into “good”.
Lemons have been given a bad rap; sometimes lemons are blessings in disguise. Just like our “problems”, lemons aren’t inherently good or bad; it’s our perception and preconceived ideas that make them so.
Each chapter of Making Lemonade describes an apparent negative (lemon), lists ingredients and preparation instructions, and shows you the positive outcome.
Making it provides you with the passion, inspiration, knowledge, and practical tools to start on a path to positivity.

To date, turmeric is one of the most recommended dietary supplements with significant benefits for the body and mind. Various studies have shown that this wonderful spice helps the body fight against various diseases such as cancer, indigestion, arthritis, acute diarrhea, heart disease and even various symptoms of depression.
In a study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research, researchers found that the consumption of the curcumin component in the spice offers the same positive effects on depression as fluoxetine, the active ingredient in the psychiatric drug Prozac. A significant advantage of this surprising discovery lies in the fact that, unlike Prozac, the intake of curcumin does not cause side effects.
The positive effect of the antidepressant can be seen in three levels:
First, curcumin is known to be an antioxidant that helps reduce inflammatory responses caused by physiological processes occurring during depression.
Second, curcumin increases the levels of BDNF in the brain, the protein responsible for the growth of nerve cells in the brain and is an important part of thinking, learning, and memory. Various studies have linked low levels of BDNF to the appearance of various depressive symptoms.
Finally, it was found that curcumin regulates the activity of various neurotransmitters in the brain, including Serotonin, which at stable levels regulates sleep, raises mood and increases appetite, and dopamine which is responsible for cognitive functions, attention, and learning.
After discovering how well turmeric and lemon work against the symptoms of depression, with the following recipe, you can maximize their various health benefits and enjoy a refreshing, natural and delicious drink.
