MSG is Toxic and should be avoided

Written by: Chris Sumbs -

MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) is very toxic and should be avoided! Industrial food manufacturers market and use MSG as a flavor enhancer because it balances, blends and rounds the total perception of other tastes which are not so nice. Problem is; consumption of MSG causes numerous negative side effects.

Here’s the list of names of ingredients which are actually MSG in disguise. - Additives that always contain MSG -

  •  Autolyzed yeast 
  • Calcium caseinate 
  • Dry milk powder 
  • Dry milk protein 
  • Gelatin Glutamate 
  • Glutamic acid 
  • Hydrolyzed corn gluten 
  • Hydrolyzed soy protein 
  • Hydrolyzed wheat protein 
  • Hydrolyzed oat flour 
  • Hydrolyzed protein 
  • Hydrolyzed plant protein 
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein 
  • Monopotassium glutamate 
  • Monosodium glutamate 
  • Natrium glutamate 
  • Plant protein extract 
  • Sodium caseinate 
  • Textured protein 
  • Yeast extract 
  • Yeast food 
  • Yeast nutrient

Some of these include; headaches, migraines, muscle spasms, nausea, rashes, anaphylaxis, seizures, depression and heart irregularities. If that’s not enough to scare you, studies have shown that MSG is known to cause damage to the nervous system. When the brain and nervous system neurons are exposed to MSG, they become very excited and rapidly fire impulses until they reach a state of extreme exhaustion. Several hours later, these neurons suddenly die, as if they were excited to death. That’s why these chemicals are called "excitotoxins". They excite neurons and then they die. MSG literally kills neurons, one of the body’s most important building blocks. For years it was believed the blood-brain barrier would prevent harmful substances from entering the interior of the brain. However, it is now recognized that many conditions can cause the blood-brain barrier to provide insufficient protection. Consuming foods that are chemically altered by MSG also endangers the body balance for the blood-brain barrier to work effectively. By consuming foods with MSG, blood glutamate levels become elevated. If these levels remain high, the glutamate will seep into the brain, creating or contributing to brain damage.

Avoiding MSG: The food industry constantly comes up with new name changes for the chemicals we are trying to avoid. As people become aware of the negative effects of MSG they simply create a new name to “mask them”. The simplest way to avoid MSG is to eat organic foods, period. Always be sure to avoid all processed foods and read labels.

Common Names for MSG: Here’s the list of names of ingredients which are actually MSG in disguise.

The Bottom line: MSG is a terribly harmful food additive. Food manufactures know this and yet they keep finding ways to put it into the foods millions of people consume every day. You should keep this out of your body at all costs!
