Guess what? Your brain is an organic Valium factory

Guess what? Evolution perfected the anti-anxiety drug way before any doctor ever had the idea for Valium. Begun 30 years ago by Les Iversen, visiting professor of pharmacology at Oxford, the search for the Valium-like chemical produced organically in the brain has almost reached it’s conclusion.

Recent research has revealed the rumored molecule is a substance diazepam-binding inhibitor (DBI) or the protein the body makes from DBI. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, your brain is a natural Valium factory.
