Please repost: Dopamine (DA) is produced by certain brain neurons in response to excitation by other neurons. DA metabolism is fantastically complicated & highly regulated. It doesn’t just “increase” in an unregulated way. Please repost & explain why you think your DA production NEEDS boosting; what tests or measurement techniques have been used to determine this; & what you expect to achieve by “boosting” DA.
