Instead he first explains in detail why IBD patients seem to be so affected by potatoes, explaining how potato lectins impair protein digestion and how the resultant maldigestion increases bioamine
levels in the intestine.
Serotonin (5'-hydroxy tryptamine; 5-HT) is a bioamine
, which is synthesized from L-tryptophan mainly in enterochromaffin cells of the gastrointestinal tract and central nervous system.
These can cause migraines, hypotension, diarrhea, and so on in sensitive consumers; around 33 per cent of the world's population is sensitive to bioamines
Pancreatic endocrine neoplasms may express normally produced pancreatic hormones (insulin, glucagon, somatostatin, pancreatic polypeptide), hormones of ectopic origin (gastrin, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, adrenocorticotrophic hormone), and bioamines
4-7) Both are trace endogenous bioamines
, agonists of the [alpha]1, [alpha]2, [beta]1 and [beta]3 adrenoreceptors, are found in human plasma, platelets, sympathic nerves and adrenal tissue, and are present in Citrus aurantium (Seville orange, bitter orange), an ingredient in dietary supplements marketed for weight loss.
Endocrine differentiation is defined as the production of peptide hormones or bioamines
by the neoplastic cells.
