Chemical Information
FooDB NameHomoveratric acid
DescriptionHomoveratric acid is the main metabolite of 3,4-dimethoxyphenylethylamine (DMPEA) in urine. It has been suggested that DMPEA and other amines are in higher concentrations in drug-free schizophrenics than in normal subjects. DMPEA is a the di-methylated metabolite of L-DOPA, the major treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD). (PMID 7059639, 14311254, 588645, 10834300). Homoveratric acid is found in olive.
