Chemistry of Ibogaine
Recent studies have shown that the primary metabolite from Ibogaine itself interacts with numerous neuron receptor transporters and neuronal networks within the mobile network and in the activity of dopaminergic-dependent and independent modulation circuits. Ibogaine takes the brain activity back into a healthy balance.
Ibogaine actions are reported to reduce dopamine concentrations in the body. This is evidenced by the presence of dopamine metabolites dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA) in larger quantities after Ibogaine administration.
This action of Ibogaine is to reverse the impact of drug abuse of some highly addictive drugs, i.e.
* Crack cocaine
All these drugs act on dopamine dopaminergic systems and stimulate the body.
