One more thing: red pepper also works great as a "driver". It is a stimulant, an absorption enhancer, and a potentiator of whatever else you use with it. Try a quarter-teaspoon of the powdered herb, or a capsule or two, along with the aminos and extracts. Drink plenty of water. And remember, if you get the jitters, back off on the dosage of all this stuff!
One last tip: Be sure to use plenty of
supplementary chromium -- the insulin action-boosting trace element. Chromium alone has been shown to have an antidepressant effect comparable in some people to the Prozac-type drugs.
Chromium was even patented for this purpose. By enhancing insulin action, chromium probably increases the uptake by the brain of all the neurotransmitter precursors -- tryptophan, tyrosine, phenylalanine. But whatever the mechanism, the stuff seems to work, and it is harmless and cheap, to boot. Do it.
