    Hey guys, I've just started supplementing with Activated Charcoal before bed to help get rid of ammonia buildup in my body. After dosing 1.5g of AC last night, I took my nightly magnesium malate and l-theanine. I woke up several times throughout the night which is a rare occurrence for me, and according to my sleep app I had very little deep sleep and light sleep.

    I was taking Ephedra for weightloss purposes but that was causing energy fluctuations throughout the day, and I believe it's because I can't break down norepinephrine correctly (MAO-A mutation) and the build up in my head causes fatigue(?).

    Anyways, I dropped it yesterday after a very low energy day hoping my situation would improve, and it slightly did! This morning I felt much better but mid day my energy is fluctuating again.

    My question is: does activated charcoal block magnesium and l-theanine absorption? My eyes feel very heavy and fatigued, I had a small CBS friendly snack before hitting the gym but after an hour of lifting my body feels depleted again and my energy isn't steady.

    Early this morning I took on an empty stomach: caffeine, 50mg p5p, 5 drops of Indian snake root for MAO-A, and 100mg of l-theanine. I felt good.

    With the small meal, I took:
    Vit A, C, E, 50mg zinc, 100mg selenium, 2mg copper, 250mcg kelp, and 450mg yucca root

    Any tips and help is appreciated

    EDIT: forgot to include that im using DIM to combat my estrogen dominance. This is a shot in the dark, but DIM and I3C are mostly found in sulfur-rich veggies so maybe it's possible that DIM contains sulfur metabolites?

    @SuckSmoothie - CBS variations listed by Yasko and Genetic Genie do not cause ammonia buildup.

    Ah thanks! Is there any cause for my eye sight fatigue that you might know? I heard b2 helps but it makes me drowsy.

    Is there any SNP's that might cause this? I know it's a very general symptom of whatever is going on inside my body but maybe you can point me in the right direction
