Hi Sample,

> Do you have any research to back up the:

>> "As I understand it, if the human body does not absorb adequate amounts of B3 (niacin) from the diet, the body will manufacture in own supply of B3. However, it is a costly manufacturing process in that 60 tryptophan molecules are consumed for every B3 molecule produced. Therefore, by supplying my body with plenty of B3, a large reservoir of tryptophan can now be freed up for the production of additional serotonin."

Ive read it several places, here is one of them:

Niacin can be made in the body from the amino acid tryptophan. About 60 mg of tryptophan are needed to produce 1 mg niacin. Requirements are usually expressed as niacin equivalents or NEs. 1 NE is either 1 mg niacin or 60 mg tryptophan.

> Also do you know if niacinamide works in the same way. Of freeing up trypto from sero production?

I dont know.

> I am thinking that the niacinamide (500mg) is more of a benzo effect, agonist or antagonist style.

> This would mean that the you and Lar are actually handling the irratability from NADH in different ways.

Not all that different. We both use TMG and I use niacin, whereas, I think Larry uses niacinamide. But youd need to ask him to be sure.
