For example, herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, diet, kratom, and marijuana (for now) should be discussed here. Tell others of successes, failures, side effects, and any known research on these substances. [Posts on these subjects created prior to 2009 are in the Physical Treatments forum.]

AcetylCholine and L Carnitine

Postby veldon75 » Mon Sep 29, 2014 12:22 pm

I started taking these supplements to restore Dopamine, has anyone tried these? There's an article you may have seen from http://www.ratracetrap.com under your brain on supplements, Brain health.

I've used L Carnitine in the past. No luck for me - but I didn't use it for WED/RLS. As far as I know (and my knowledge is limited), there are no acetylcholine supplements - rather you eat choline-rich foods, such as eggs, some meats, specific veggies. There might be choline supplements. Also, I do not think acetylcholine increases dopamine - it itself is a neurotransmitter. Not sure if it's implicated in any way with WED/RLS.

I think there is new research showing the L carnitine may cause heart issues. Might want to research that. Doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't take it - I haven't looked at the research to know what it says. Just remember reading that somewhere.

I didn't go to your link - my apologies. Will do later today.

Here's a direct link to the article (I found it kind of hard to find from the main page):

Sorry about the link not working it's called The Rat Race or your brain on supplements, it says Choline (which I bought at Earth Fare, health foods store) and L Carnitine restores and maintains Dopamine.
