I was wondering if anyone had some natural mao-a inhibitors they could recommend to me.
So far I have on my list:
St Johns Wort
B12? I read a medline article that said low b12 is associated with elevated platlet mao, but not sure if it applies to the liver as well.
I'm looking for a natural mao-a inhibitor to give my serotonin some hang time. I supplement 5htp, tryptophan, and inositol, but these only give me relief for about an hour. Adding St Johns Wort helps some. I've been prescribed Prozac before, but it stopped helping after a few days. I have low tolerance for alcohol, 1 drink will give me a nasty hangover, and no tolerance for caffeine, a couple squares of dark chocolate will have me amped for days. I think my liver glutathione is getting nuked by my overactive MAO-A, compromising my ability to break down alcohol and caffeine. I appreciate any recommendations.
