Dangers of Monosodium Glutamate or MSG

MSG or monosodium glutamate over stimulates brain cells and neurons to point of complete exhaustion and cell death. Yes, this mean MSG kills brain cells!! It is especially important to completely avoid foods containing MSG for anyone that may be suffering from any nervous system disorders (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis or Alzheimer Disease), or any disorders of the endocrine system (e.g. Diabetes, Thyroid disorders).

Just like Aspartame, MSG is what neuroscientists refer to as an “excitotoxin” or “neurotoxin” because of it’s degenerative and deadly effects on the brain and nervous system.

MSG or Monosodium Glutamate has one sole purpose.. to enhance flavor. It does nothing to preserve the longevity of your food and it has zero nutritional value.

Companies have found loop holes around listing MSG on some of their products so here is a list of “other” names for MSG:
Glutamic acid
Monosodium glutamate
Monopotassium glutamate
Calcium glutamate
Monoammonium glutamate
Magnesium glutamate
Natrium glutamate (natrium is Latin/German for sodium)
Calcium caseinate
Sodium caseinate
Textured protein
Soy protein
Pea Protein
Corn protein (think of it this way, if it was just corn, it would be labeled just corn)
Wheat protein
Hydrolyzed protein
Anything “hydrolyzed”
Anything “autolyzed”
Non-fat dried milk
Yeast nutrient
Yeast extract
Yeast food
Wheat gluten
Malted Barley
Non-fat dried milk

These are just a few to start with feel free to add your contributions with any other names that may not be listed here.
