  • Rhodiola rosea (Rhodiola rosea), acting on the serotonin system relieves the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal syndrome in rats. ( Mannucci2012sir )
  • St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is not among adaptogens in the narrow sense, but in the context of a serotonin deserves mention - increases serotonin levels in the brain ( Bhattcharyya1999epg ).
  • Taiwanese study Lin2003imo systematically examined the effects of TCM herbs on monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitory activity and has found a Arisaema amurense (Ki = 0.59mg / ml), Lilium brownii (Ki = 0.58mg / ml), Lycium chinense (5.01mg / ml), and Uncaria rhynchophylla (0.02mg / ml). In other words, it is extremely effective unkárie A. amurense and L. brownii are 30 x less potent and wolfberry is 250 times less effective than unkárie.
  • TCM plant Pueraria lobata (USA known as dreaded weed kudzu) is acting on the serotonergic system (monoamine oxidase inhibitor), and is effective against alcoholism ( Keung2001bad ).
  • Ulbricht2006aes identifies Valeriana officinalis, Melissa officinalis, Passiflora edulis, Oenothera biennis, Ginkgo biloba , Trigonella foenum-graecum and Marrubium vulgare herbs as a potential enhancer effect on serotonin transmission (similar to SSRI).
