12g is such an enormous amount to "supplement" anything with that I haven't really bothered with it. At those doses it also gets pretty expensive, especially for something with minimal evidence. If you want a legal, OTC supplement PROVEN to be an effective antidepressant, SAMe has an excellent track record and is used as a prescription antidepressant in much of Europe. Though like even the strongest, most effective antidepressants, it doesn't work for everyone.
Like 5htp, the implication of inositol and related chemicals in psychiatric disorders has been somewhat well-supported, but the evidence for its effectiveness as a direct oral supplement is somewhat thin.
