Re: 5-HTP confirmed to lower Tyrosine stimulation

> I added a wee bit (~20mg) of 5-htp this morning and it has successfully taken a bite out of the ongoing stimulation from tyrosine.
> I think this confirms the inverse relationship between dopamine/norepinephrine and seratonin.
> The combination of these two (L-Tyrosine & 5-HTP) in very small doses work well as augments for Nardil, at least in this trial. I think one of the benefits of these two is that they are easily adjustable for a best ratio of effect. I've also been reading that 5-htp should be taken with an aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase such as EGCG (a catechin in green tea/extract) to prevent seratonin synthesis in the blood (as opposed to the brain).

i don't know why it was written that would help...if you stop 5ht synthesis in the gut, you also stop it in the brain. EGCG passes the bbb...carbidopa doesn't thats why it is used
