DMT – Endogenous Or Endogenous?
DMT is a hallucinogenic tryptamine drug that has many health risks, produces terrifying hallucinations, and can lead to psychological dependency. It also increases the risk of serotonin syndrome in people taking antidepressants or other drugs that increase serotonin levels.
Research has suggested that release dmt is endogenous, which means that it originates in the body of a living organism. It is not known how much DMT the human body contains or where it is produced.
The pineal gland in the brain may produce trace amounts of DMT but it is not sufficient to trigger psychedelic effects.
Scientists have been looking at whether the pineal gland can be turned on to increase DMT production in order to induce psychedelic experiences. But it’s still not clear that this is a good idea.
In the lab, researchers have found that rat brains contain trace amounts of DMT and that its concentration rises after a stressor such as cardiac arrest. However, this research lacks enough data to prove or disprove whether DMT causes near-death experiences.
