Tryptamine in seeds
-- phychedelic -- addictive -- toxic --
Are you addicted to seeds?
Maybe not feeling so well?
Test your diet
-> seeds, nuts, beans, soy, lentiles, legumes <--
see if you feel the difference.
What makes seeds toxic?
- Alkaloids are amines synthesized by plants to protect them from being eaten
- Alkaloids are amines (NH2) but do not form into proteins <non-proteinogenic>
- Many biologically important compounds are amines.
- Humans primarily use alkaloids medicinally as pain killers.
- All alkaloids are toxic and addictive.
- The Greeks killed Socrates with (S)-coniine.[conolidine]
- Alkaloid poisoning produce psychological effects
- Mild cases resembling peacefulness, euphoria or hallucinations.
Plant Seeds, psychoactive substances
- poppy seeds
- Calabar Bean
- magic mushrooms
- whole wheat
Plant parts high in tryptophan
- the parts that make a new plant, their seed
- monoamine alkaloid.
- trace amounts in mammal brains
- common functional group in tryptamines
- biologically active
- psychedelic drug
- brain fog
- plants do not want you to eat their seeds.
Eat no seeds, eat these:
- leaves -- cabbage, kale, spinach
- stems -- asparagus
- bark -- cinnamon
- roots -- carrots, potato, garlic, onion
- fruit -- caution >high sugar content<
Technical stuff, should be on a separate page
There are also purely structural classifications based on the presence of carbazole, β-carboline or other units in the carbon skeleton of the alkaloid molecule.
Some 200 dimeric indole alkaloids are known with two indole groups.
- Simple derivatives of indole
- Simple derivatives of β-carboline
- Pyrroloindole alkaloids
- Indole-3-acetic acid
- Tryptamines [tryptophan amino acid, 'chicken']
- hemiterpenoids: ergot alkaloids
