    I need to make sure that I've got correct knowledge of this stuff, so if someone could tell me whether the following information is correct or not and if I'm missing something essential, that would be excellent. I'm interested in the effects on brain functions, not other body. So here we go:

    Tea (especially green)

    Contains antioxidants (catechins) that act as MAO-B and COMT inhibitors; contains L-Theanine

    Increases GABA and dopamine; influences serotonin levels in unknown ways

    Rhodiola Rosea
    Contains antioxidants that act as COMT and non-selective MAO inhibitors

    Enhances the bioavailibility of numerous substances (especially curcumin); has anti-depressive and cognition enhancing effects not well understood

    Has anti-depressive and cognition enhancing effects not well understood; also acts as a non-selective MAO inhibitor

    Olive leaf
    Contains hydroxytyrosol that acts as a MAO-B inhibitor (+ other effects on dopamine?)

    No need for in-depth analyses - just correcting of mistakes and so on. Thanks!

    I am not sure what you are posting here for. This is what google is for. I did a quick look under hydroxytyrosol and all the answers popped up. This is a discussion forum, and is not really designed as a second google.
