1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

Psycho- and Vasoactive Compounds in Food Substances

Psycho- and Vasoactive Compounds in Food Substances

  1. trptamene
    The presence of substances in foods and plant products
    that are physiologically active in man is well known and is
    the basis for much of therapeutic medicine. While many
    of these active substances serve normal roles in mammalian
    physiology, they can also cause unnatural or toxic effects
    when consumed in quantity. In the current report
    this subject will be presented in two parts. First, the presence
    of physiologically active or toxic amines in substances
    that are commonly used as foods for their nutritive
    value will be examined. Second, the food or plant
    materials that are used primarily for their physiologic effect
    will be discussed.
