    Why does DHA and Uridine increase dopamine so much? Never read about anyone here mentioning uridine as a ray peat supplement but my thought is that anything that increase tyrosine hydroxylase and dopamine would be good for lowering serotonin, lowering prolactin and boosting androgens? I have tried this combination in the past and felt very good and had very dopaminergic effect and substantially increased libido at that point. Cant tell if it was something else i did but i knew i was going hardcore on DHA, Uridine and choline supps to try boost BDNF. Then i later read ray peats stuff and stopped. Anyway heres the study.
    Would like other peoples opinion and if they ever tried it out?

    None coz DHA is a PUFA. But just wondering why a PUFA that is toxic would increase dopamine

    Ive tried them seperately and together they have much more potent effect.

    i've been taking 300mg of uridine for a month or so. It seems to help cognition.

    Uridine is a phosphatidyl donor. Uridine + DHA = phosphatidyl choline in the brain. Uridine is said to repair/upregulate dopamine receptors.
