What They Don’t Want You to Know About MSG

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

There is a secret lurking in the foods that we eat. A secret that is so dangerous that the food industry does not want you knowing about it. It’s called MSG (monosodium glutamate) and it’s killing us right now.

Monosodium Glutamate is a white crystallized powder used to enhance the flavor of food. It has been used since the late 1940’s and more so in Chinese cooking until recently. Now this dangerous powder is found in almost every food product on the market today.

But it’s not just the shelves of supermarkets that this dangerous stuff lurks. Many Chinese restaurants are still using monosodium glutamate in their foods. And even if they say they’re not using the stuff, there’s no way of telling if it’s true or not.

So what makes monosodium glutamate so dangerous? For one it’s been shown in studies to kill the brain cells of laboratory animals, so imagine what it could do to humans. But, brain cells are not the only health concern when it comes to the stuff. Monosodium Glutamate could also be linked to diseases like Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease.

You can also add migraine headaches, stroke, numbness, seizures, blurred vision, chronic fatigue, diabetes, and liver damage to that list as well. And if that’s not enough, MSG could also be the reason why so many of us are overweight even if we are trying to watch our calorie intake.

Unfortunately, your local supermarket isn’t the only place that carries foods laced with monosodium glutamate. Even organic foods found in health food stores are no stranger to the toxic powder.

And because the powder is such a health concern to many consumers, manufacturers have began using other words like glutamate, sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate, hydrolyzed protein, autolyzed protein, textured protein, plant protein extract, textured soy protein, textured whey protein and yeast extract to disguise its true name. And sadly some manufacturers will go even further by using simple terms like natural flavors to hide it.

While there was numerous health concerns pointed out over the years, the FDA continued to deny that monosodium glutamate was dangerous more than once. Maybe they think that damage caused in laboratory animals is not enough or maybe they’re assuming that humans are invincible, who knows. There is one thing for certain however; monosodium glutamate is a very dangerous substance that is added to almost all processed foods.

So the only real way to remove MSG from your diet is by trusting yourself. Instead of purchasing processed foods or dining out, choose whole foods and cook at home. There is no better way to eating healthy than by preparing it with your own two hands.

Nutritional Health Supplements

Friday, July 18th, 2008

Your health is the most important possession you can have. Without it, you’ve lost the foundation for everything in life – relationships, career and fun. Taking care of your health and doing all that you can to protect your health is the best thing you can do for yourself.

Proper diet, exercise and regular medical check-ups and screenings all help keep you on the right track. But there is another element to your health that you may be missing – nutritional health supplements

We all reach for the vitamin C capsules when we’re coming down with a cold, and put vitamin E on scars to help them heal quicker, and that’s fine, but really you need to use vitamin supplements consistently for the best results.

Even for those who are in top-shape, nutritional health supplements are necessary because there can be imbalances that haven’t yet shown up. Taking a high-quality vitamin supplement is like having an insurance policy.

Actually, it’s better, because it’s a very safe bet that at some point you will get sick with a cold of the flu and your body will need to be in proper balance nutritionally speaking to heal itself faster.

Supplements also help reduce the possibility of all kinds of disease.  Here are several areas where taking a good vitamin supplement can help:

• Reducing the occurrence of and fighting diseases.
• Promoting stable mood and mental health.
• Fighting the outward signs of aging.
• Fighting off viral infections and reducing their duration.
• Keeping energy levels high.
• Helping with diet and fitness goals.
• Fighting age related problems such as osteoporosis in women.
• Keeping women of childbearing age in good health for pregnancy.
• Helping growing children and adolescents to build strong healthy body systems.

These are only a few of the ways that nutritional health supplements can help you get healthy and stay healthy throughout your life.  When you’re considering which vitamin and mineral supplements to buy, keep in mind that natural vitamin supplements are superior in every way to synthetic vitamins.

Your body will benefit more from a good, high-quality natural supplement than it even could from something that was created in a laboratory. Read your labels, because the word “natural” gets thrown around quite easily in the vitamin world.

Make sure what you’re getting is truly a natural vitamin supplement that comes from all natural sources. Also, look for functional food and dietary supplements, which are supplements that provide you with nutrients that serve to add health benefits beyond basic nutrition.

Functional food and dietary supplement examples might be beta-carotene, lycopene, dietary fiber, flavenols and others.  Without your health, you can’t fully enjoy this wonderful life and everything it has to offer.

In addition to healthy diet, exercise, and regular health screenings, make sure you’re taking a top-notch nutritional health supplement like SeaAloe to keep your body, mind and whole life happy and healthy.
