> You seem to know much more things than me on the subject. That's the reason why I'm really interested in your theories. I know anyway that theories are like ... gonades (everybody has its own). But I appreciate much more alternative point of view than what I listen to everyday on every TV channell : )
I will help in any way I can.
About Google.....the most important thing is to develop keyword strategies....selecting words that might be unique to the topic you want to learn about. That does mean you need to have some idea of what you're looking for, so you might want to bookmark some of the sites listed here:
I just did a Google search using the following keywords: lecithin phospholipid mood.
I got good hits.
> I bought some soy lecithin granules, following your suggestion. How to start ?
I know you are far away from me.....I hope those granules are like the ones I see here.
I just get a teaspoon, and eat 5 or so teaspoons of the granules, just as they are. Mine have a mild flavour, somewhat nutty, and pleasant. They do stick in the teeth a bit....
If the texture is not so good in your mouth, you could sprinkle them over a salad, or cereal, or vegetables. Whatever.
> You mentioned in a previous post that the fact that I had a so quick response on aminos could mean that I have some very old-dated nutrional deficiency (sorry if the periphrasis is not correct). Where could I begin with ?
You want to do all you can to optimize how your body is using these chemicals. That means two things: a) supplying a great variety of nutrients to get the maximum efficiency out of all the nutrients; b) also supplying nutrients that are calming and balancing. Get everything working better *and* smoother.
The problem is that if you change a bunch of things at the same time, you won't have a clear idea of what each change does to you, specifically.
So try the lecithin for a couple of days.
Then (and I know this is a bunch of changes all at once), start taking B-complex (a blend of all the B-vitamins), extra B-12, zinc (30-40 mg/day) and selenium (200 micrograms/day). These all work together anyway, so consider them a "package".
If the lecithin works as I hope it does, and the "package" is too stimulating, then add in some niacinamide (one particular form of B-3), and we'll pick up from there, later.

You're very welcome.
