Strategies for safe brain boosting culled from several sources.

PRECURSOR LOADING:A strategy for boosting neurotransmitter levels.

This is a popular technique for boosting levels of brain norepinephrine ,
dopamine, and serotonin. This technique can help with mild depression,
insomnia, lack of self confidence and particularly withdrawal or abuse of
stimulants. The precursors of these brain chemicals are the amino acids
L-Tyrosine or L-Phenylalanine...(norepinephrine and dopamine)...and
L-Tryptophan.. (serotonin)...Recent research indicates that low levels of
these brain chemicals results in low self confidence, increased appetite,
and depression. The crash and mood swings experienced by stimulant addicts
are also, to a great extent caused by depletion of these
neurotransmitters. The idea is to eat two separate amino acid/vitamin
formulas (the vitamins are necessary co-factors to aid the body's
conversion of the amino acids to neurotransmitters) two formulas are
necessary because the two amino acids compete with each other for the same
macromolecule for transport accross the blood brain barrier.


Take 1 to 3 grams of L-Tyrosine(best) or L-Phenylalanine.
..cofactors necessary for optimum conversion to catecholamines
Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Rubidium (opt.), Vitamin B6, copper, DMAE(opt.)
This should be taken with a light morning meal and perhaps a combination
of antioxidants since catecholamines naturally produce oxidative stressors
(Vitamins E and A, selenium.) Caffeine also increases catecholamine


Take 1 to 3 grams of L-Tryptophan
along with the cofactors Vitamin B6,folic acid,niacin,Vitamin C (can
usually be supplied by a "Stress B+C" multivitamin Carbohydrate meals
greatly increase conversion of tryptophan into serotonin. This aids restful
sleep,and the next day,the increased tryptamine levels assist in setting
circadian rhythms and have been correlated with improved sence of well
being and libido.

Vitamin B12,in large amounts,has been shown to improve memory and lucid
dreaming by increasing RNA synthesis.(try 1000 ug.just before bed) Also
large amounts of Choline Chloride, L- Glutamine and Lechithin have shown
to improve memory, also try DMAE bitartrate and Brewers Yeast ....Hope
this information proves useful!!!
