    Progesterone, bromocriptine may treat autism

    A great new study, which, while genomic in character, inadvertently points the finger directly at estrogen and/or serotonin as causes of autism. After all progesterone's main role in the human organism is as an estrogen (and cortisol!) antagonist, while bromocriptine is one of the oldest...

    Dietary sugar can treat chronic depression

    Not much to comment on here, except to point out that the sugar "addiction" in depressed people has been recognized by medicine for at least 50 years and has always been treated as a co-morbidity of the depressed state, also in need of treatment. Doctors have been advising depressed patients to...

    Look for an alternative to coffee

    Coffee improves my well-being, but everything containing it has risen excessively in price in these times. I have tried nicotine with success, but nicotine gum is boring to consume. I live in a communist dictatorship so snus is illegal for some reason, cigarettes are legal but I don't want to...

    Even very low-dose endocrine disruptors induce learned helplessness, anhedonia

    Not much to comment on this study, considering the mountains of literature already available on the topic of endocrine disruptors such as BPA/BPA/DEHP, except to point out that the results were obtained even with very low-dose exposure to the harmful chemicals. Another interesting finding was...

    Cistanche / Echinachoside restores Tyrosine hydroxilase expression to normal in Parkinson's

    It has been established before that cistanche helps with Parkinson's and has a pro-dopamine effect. This study looked a bit deeper into the mechanism of it. In my opinion most noteworthy is the almost complete recovery of Tyrosine hydroxilase in tje sibstabtia nigra of Parkinson's mice...

    Dopamine agonists can treat anhedonia

    The title may sound obvious to many, but this study is one of the few to bring up the taboo topic of serotonin's role in symptoms of depression. The current dogma still holds that raising serotonin levels (or activating its receptors) is the most beneficial mechanism to treating depression and...

    (-) Benzofuranylpropylaminopropan is unknown peaty chemical?

    I had recently dug into the "depths" of pubmed and found two notable and rather unknown substances that could potentially become very peaty. In short, this is one of the most powerful neurotrophic substances I have seen. But it also is anticancer and anti-cortisol drug. The only negative can be...

    Quinine - liquid product for R&D

    Just a placeholder thread for now, until I organize all the references I think would be interesting/relevant to post here. For now, a quote from Peat on a recent interview about quinine and inflammation/ACE2, a very long thread/discussion in regards to quinine's anti-serotonin effects, and some...

    Vitamin C ESSENTIAL To Lower Prolactin?

    We have demonstrated that dopamine rapidly downregulates dopamine Ds receptors and that the physiological concentration of ascorbic acid prevents the D2 receptor downregulation. The ascorbic acid not only protects dopamine from oxidation (17, 22) but also potentiates the inhibitory action of...

    How to mitigate vomiting/nausea/emesis from D2 agonism?

    I've tried metergoline and it gives me this effect where food quite literally spills out of my stomach, especially when I'm asleep. I also get constipation. I recently tried a large dose of cat's claw, which is an MAOB inhibitor, which increases dopamine. I got the same effect that night. I was...
