Your Health, Weight Loss, And MSG

MSG is hidden in thousands of supermarket foods ranging from canned soup, to salad dressing. Ingesting MSG can cause diabetes, high blood pressure, adrenal gland malfunction, seizures, excessive weight gain, stroke, heightens anxiety, saps energy, and sabotages mood.

The average American consumes 1.92 pounds of MSG each year.

Glutamate is a natural amino acid found in foods containing protein, like milk, mushrooms, and fish. Monosodium glutamate (MSG), manufactured with only the sodium salt of glutamate, is designed to be a flavor enhancer. Unfortunately, clever labeling practices serve to camouflage its presence.

Some people experience reactions and others do not. , If you are MSG sensitive some of the common symptoms are.

Headache, weakness, stomachache, tingling, flushing, visual disturbance, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tightness of the chest, difficulty breathing, skin rash, or sensitivity to light, noise, or smells.

Vegetarians Take Note!

Soybeans naturally have one of the highest glutamate levels of any of the plant products. When you hydrolyze it, you release the glutamate, and the soy protein isolates. Then the glutamate levels are higher than you will find in MSG products

You may be asking why is it added to processed foods? It makes the cheapest and blandest foods taste great, simply meaning more sales and greater profits. Not to mention you cant sell drugs without sick people.

Now since its almost impossible to avoid, here are a few tips to help block it and undo some of the damage.

Magnesium 500 mg, because magnesium can block the MNDA glutamate type receptor. That's its natural function, so it significantly reduces toxicity.

Magnesium rich foods are: almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, and deep green vegetables.

Vitamin E succinate 1000 iu is powerful at inhibiting excitotoxicity, as are all of your antioxidants.
