I am particularly "aspartic" today

I found this post on a message board
[http://bbs.stresscenter.com/cgi-bin/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=print_topic;f=16;t=000093]:

“I work with an orthomolecular nutritionist (treats with food, vits and amino acids) and I asked him awhile back about Paxil. He said that Paxil will elliviate [sic] some symptoms, but cause others. It will increase your aspartic acid level the more you take it. Aspartic acid is our "anger" chemical . . . too much of it can make us really snappy, frustrated easily and impatient.”

At this point in my reading, I’m thinking that while I don’t take Paxil, I must have aspartic acid . . . and then I read the next sentence: “Chicken has alot of aspartic acid in it.”

Well that explains it, then.
