    Does anybody has a good list of what supplements can lower it?
    I don't know if this list is accurate, found in some website.

    • Lectins initiate excess polyamine production, which may be the result of an effort to repair the damage to intestinal microvilli caused by lectins (R). A high polyamine level may decrease NK cell populations (R).
    • Lipoic Acid (R)
    • CRH/ACTH/Cortisol (R) – from stress or other causes
    • Indoleamine 2,3-Dioxygenase (IDO) – activated from cortisol and inflammation (R)
    • Folic acid (synthetic form) (R)
    • Somatostatin (Growth Hormone–Inhibiting Hormone) (R)
