The Effectiveness Of Tyrosine In Raising Dopamine Levels
Yes: The caffeine in coffee blocks Adenosine receptors, which when activated make you tired and sleepy. This blockade also affects all major neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin -- and in high doses, norepinephrine too. Dopamine effects are not in the exact same regions of the brain that other addictive substances affect, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does exercise increase serotonin by stimulating the uptake of tryptophan by brain synaptosomes(sze py.1976)?
Not likely: Risperidone is a dopamine and serotonin blocker, and doesn't directly affect acetylcholine transmission. Studies in animals and humans have shown risperidone may increase acetylcholine activity in the cerebral cortex through indirect actions, and this may account for some of its positive clinical effects e.g. on cognition in schizophrenia. ...Read more

Natural High : There are many ways once can try to increase brain Dopamine levels. But what ever you do, do not do it with drugs. The high is short and "fun"; the fall is miserable and and long. Some supplements can help, but discuss with your doctor before flushing your dollars down the drain.

What is the pathway and role of vitamin B12 in metabolism/catabolism of phenylalanine and tyrosine? Thank you.
Disease examples: Let's use model of acetylcholine. In Alzheimer's disease we give meds called acetylcholinesterases, which block chemical that breaks down transmitter, and enhances communication. In myasthenia gravis, we have similar approaches to maintain nerve/ muscle interactions. Why do you ask? Is there a condition that needs attention? ...Read more
I want to boost dopamine level .So what's the difference among the three supplement : L Tyrosine , L-Dopa (Mucuna) and L-Phenylalanine?

Can being on antipsychotics long term lower dopamine in the D2 receptors but raise dopamine in unblocked dopamine receptors due to extra receptors?
Yes: yes, they can, depending on the type of antipsychotic. ...Read more
Can supplementing with acetyl L- Carnitine raise acetylcholine all over the body or does it only affect ACh levels in the brain?
Probably neither: Unless you were severely deficient of it previously, supplementing with it is getting peed out in your urine. This supplement is like many on the market right now- they promise you all kinds of things they can't back up - and don't have to because they are classified as foods, not as medicines. So show me a good study that someone of normal diet and health actually increases brain levels with this ...Read more
