Ayahuasca is a powerful psychedelic brew used by indigenous people in the Amazon basin.
Recent research has shown that ayahuasca has surprising effects on the brain.
Ayahuasca can change brain waves, increasing alpha waves and decreasing beta waves.
Ayahuasca can increase connectivity between brain regions, leading to a more integrated brain.
Ayahuasca can promote the growth of new brain cells, particularly in the hippocampus.
These effects may explain why ayahuasca has been used for centuries for spiritual and healing purposes.
Further research is needed to fully understand the potential therapeutic benefits of ayahuasca.
