Ghormeh Sabzi Posted February 18, 2012 Report Share Posted February 18, 2012 I just came across uridine in my research about a half hour ago. I need to read more, but there are studies which suggest it can help modulate dopamine release, which may be helpful for our condition. You can get it from a couple of supplements, but I don't know if these would be strong enough to have any serious effect. NucleomaxX has recently been developed, and appears to provide a far greater source of uridine. Any thoughts would be welcome - I may be way off the mark. Disorders due to an altered balance of dopamine release by the cerebral dopaminergic system, such as schizophrenia and Parkinson's disease, can be treated by administration of uridine which is a specific agent for the protection of the cholecystokinin level in the brain tissue. http://www.google.co...tents/US4960759 Uridine is a therapy for hereditary orotic aciduria and is being investigated in other disorders caused by mitochondrial dysfunction, including toxicities resulting from treatment with nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors in HIV. Historically, the use of uridine as a therapeutic agent has been limited by poor bioavailability. A food supplement containing nucleosides, NucleomaxX®, has been reported to raise plasma uridine to supraphysiologic levels. http://www.plosone.o...al.pone.0014709 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
