All I can say is that it works for me; perhaps keeping my skin from breaking out and a little tan knocks out my blues.

As you can imagine, I've studied SAD at about the same or deeper depth than I usually investigate anything. The special lightboxes for SAD cost a fortune. I don't do well on SSRI's, an understatement to say the least.

I do take large amounts of tyrosine a few hours before UV exposure, that might help explain my response, and of course antioxidants every day regardless; it's odd the same metabolic pathway that leads from tyrosine to melanin also leads to neurotransmitters.

Perhaps it is all a placebo effect, but as I say, it works for me, and was not suggesting or recommending it for anyone else.

I'm also not talking about being tan like George Hamilton, the actor; that all better be some kind of dye or I don't know why that man doesn't have problems.
