It can ward off anaemia, and act as an analgesic. Good sources are dark-green leafy veges, carrots, tonula yeast, egg yolk, melons, apricots, pumpkins, avocados, beans, whole wheat, dark rye flour and liver. Iodine [I; iodide} is mostly stored in the thyroid; it can improve energy and mental reaction times, as well as help in burning excess fat. Good sources are onions, seafood and kelp. Iron [Fe} is needed for proper metabolism of B vitamins, as well as production of haemoglobin and some enzymes.

This may be more an observation of coincidence or individual differences in reaction than any concrete analysis of the matter, but should perhaps be borne in mind, nonetheless. Colour Experiments with humans comparing a grey, 'sterile' room and a colourful, 'diversified' room, showed that the colourful environment produced Jess alpha-wave EEG activity, and lower heart rate, than the grey room, in which subjects became restless and agitated. Subjects in the colourful room felt 'silent and subdued'.

MAOis, particularly inhibitors of MAO-A, allow for DMT [which would normally be metabolised before reaching the brain] to express oral activity (McKenna eta!. 1984a; Ott 1994; Sai-Halasz 1963). This is the basis of what is known as the 'ayahuasca effect' [see Methods of Ingestion, Banisteriopsis ]. Some MAOis have been shown to induce pineal N-acetyl transferase activity (Finnin 1979); and MAO-A inhibitors also increase pineal levels of N-acetyl-serotonin and melatonin, an effect which was negated by coadministration of propranolol, a P-adrenergic antagonist.
