Inositol helps with seratonin. In some cases, low levels of inositol can cause constipation.

Israeli research found it as effective as prozac or luvox for some problems, such as OCD.

Dr. Mendel Fux (Israeli researcher) uses up to 18 grams - 6 teaspoons of the powder daily. (can be bought at a reasonable price on Amazon. ) Some people are helped with as little as 2 grams (less than a teaspoon a day.)

It can take, for many people, up to six weeks or more to see benefits.

One can try using it with some Vitamin C powder.
