Uncovering The Hazards Of ‘Disguised’ MSG In Your Food

By -

We’ve all heard how bad MSG is for us in our food and we try to avoid it. But it can be disguised,  it’s is not as easy as just looking for the letters MSG on a label or in an ingredient listing. Did you know that MSG ( monosodium glutamate) has about 40 different names it can go by?

This flavour enhancer has been linked to a host of health conditions, including a fatty liver, liver toxicity, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, headaches, heart palpitations, obesity, metabolic syndrome and brain damage.

MSG is simply the addition of one ( mono) sodium molecule to the amino acid glutamic acid, which is found in many foods. Glutamic acid can be difficult for the body to flush out especially when eaten in excess. It can cause the nerves in the body to fire excessively causing a form or neuro- toxicity. Because MSG acts as a nerve stimulant it changes how the taste buds taste food and so many people get addicted to these foods.
