Yet Another Substance That Raises Dopamine

A man on another website swears by one Oregano oil tablet at night with dinner for his RLS.

Seems that oregano oil might also have antidepressant activity via...DOPAMINE. I wouldn't be surprised if ginger, turmeric, and a few other benign herbs raise dopamine and that's why people on here are feeling better when they drink a cup or two of it. Probably also anti-inflammatory.

Just read that oregano oil (has to be the "supercritical' kind) has as an active ingredient, thymquinone which essentially is a "quinolone." And as I reported here before, quinolones can be powerful dopamine agonists.


There are also several popular antibiotics that are made from quinolone and maybe that is why some people with RLS report feeling better on some antibiotics.
