Pic related, is serotonin and dopamine really this simple?
It seems odd, then, that protein isn't suggested over medication. Yes -- these amino acids are for sale in bulk.
Anecdotal: yes, they're effective. In fact, it's some of the most potent of anything drug-like, sans something like mushrooms -- especially with histidine (dosing, taken as 500mg-1g of both tryptophan and phenylalanine; plus histidine, as if from a salt shaker). Yet, it's consistent (seemingly without negative tolerence effects -- actually requiring less dosing, from 1g+ per, because of how powerful they are); and legal.
Furthermore, the simplicity shows a trend of how a lot of "psychological" problems are really just malnutrition, QED. E.g., effects associated with low T aren't prescribed steroids -- but just eating certain foods and exercising. Thus, it's inconsistent that other "psychological" problems are correlated with some unmeasurableness (thereof, not scientific), instead of with not getting enough foregoers for proper hormone availability.
Cause and effect. "The simplest answer is always the best." This is why psychology is aptly described as "not a science", because it is skipping the simple procedure of nutrition as a control.
