Monosodium Glutamate Side Effects

I certainly do not think that Monosodium Glutamate Side Effects is an accurate depiction of what  msg  does, in fact, I would say, rather than side effects, the effects are hidden short term and longer term  effects.that are often not even considered when and where it’s effects factors into disease.

History of MSG

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) came to prominence in the 1940 as a flavor enhancer. The Japanese pioneered the use of msg in the early 1900s as it was found in seaweed. It was eventually that glutamic acid was seaweed’s flavor-enhancing component.

Professor Kikunae Ikeda of the University of Tokyo isolated monosodium glutamate using kombu. A slow and costly extraction process was used to produce MSG until 1956, when the Japanese succeeded in producing glutamic acid by means of fermentation; large-scale production of MSG began.

I challenge anyone to show me one processed food that does not contain msg. It goes by so many names that it is virtually impossible to know of it’s presence simply by reading food labels.

You may have noticed earlier that monosodium glutamate was isolated from the seaweed plant in order to separate out the msg. In nature there is balance, so isolation upsets the balance to unknown and maybe unintended consequences.

The Dangers of MSG

“Russell L. Blaylock, MD, has written Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills,1 in which he explains that certain amino acids when overly abundant in the brain can cause neurons to die. Many biochemicals can act as neurotransmitters in the brain—some excite our neurons; others calm them. In particular, glutamate, aspartate, and cysteine are three amino acids that excite our neurons and can be called “excitotoxins.” They are now added in large amounts to our food supply.”

  • MSG is an excitotoxin that overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death
  • Causes brain damage
  • Triggers or worsens learning disabilities
  • Up to 40 percent of the US population is intolerant of MSG at levels  found in food
  • MSG is really toxin because of it’s killing ability

Does any of this help explain why so many people seem to be brain dead or why the sudden rise in brain diseases like alzheimers, dimentia, mental disorders, neurological disorders, encepalopathy, epilepsy, parkinson’s, and many more not mentioned here. Just a question! 

Again from Dr. Blaylock – “Pregnant mothers are seldom warned about dangers to the fetus from excitotoxins. Due to the pioneering work of John Olney, MD, pure MSG has been removed from baby food. However, the food manufacturers continue to add an “even more dangerous product, hydrolyzed vetable protein, which contains three known excitotoxins and has added MSG.”

Here is what the FDA has to say about msg’s safety “FDA considers the addition of MSG to foods to be “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS). Although many people identify themselves as sensitive to MSG, in studies with such individuals given MSG or a placebo, scientists have not been able to consistently trigger reactions.”

MSG is most often found in processed food, restaurant food, and fast food along with seasonings and condimentsfood

Some drugs – even some drugs contain msg and it’s related salts.

Cosmetics – MSG may be hidden in your cosmetics and personal care products. If you know you’re sensitive to MSG, you may be avoiding it in your food but still noticing MSG-type reactions and not know where the source is.

Synthetic Vitamins – The fact that there is a msg free market vitamin market tells you that all vitamins are not msg free.

MSG is a dangerous toxin despite claims to the contrary, protect your brain and your body systems by avoiding msg
