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.

There is NO MSG in SeaAloe, never has been and never will be. Sea Aloe is the original Seasilver product, and is an all-natural whole food vitamin and mineral supplement containing over 80 nutrients and all essential amino acids.

What Are Whole Foods?

What Are Whole Foods?

If you’re feeling sluggish and tired, you may want to check your diet. A major reason we often feel tired and don’t have the energy to do anything is because of what we eat. Putting unhealthy foods into our body can cause us to become sluggish and irritable, and we often gain weight.

Eating unhealthy foods can also lead to obesity, high cholesterol and even diabetes. Instead of eating unhealthy foods, why not try a more nutritional approach such as eating foods healthier foods.

Healthy foods such as whole foods are unprocessed which means they contain the nutrients our bodies love and need. And because they are unprocessed, they do not contain chemicals such as pesticides or anything that is artificial which can harm our bodies. Instead, they come straight from Mother Nature, unlike processed foods. Unprocessed foods are also fresh not frozen, since freezing can cause nutrients to be lost.

Compared to unprocessed, processed foods lose their nutrient value and often contain additives such as sugar, sodium, and fat. Most importantly, many of us do not realize just how harmful these unnatural additives can be.

When we are young, our bodies tend to be tolerant of all of the unhealthy processed foods that we tend to eat. Naturally, children are challenged everyday with the temptation of sugary snacks and sweets. While a treat every now and then is acceptable, eating tons of candy and other unhealthy snacks is not. This is very dangerous for a child’s body and can lead to serious complications when they grow older.

As we age, we tend to lose the nutrients our body needs. When we’re deprived of nutrients, our bodies stop responding, leaving us more venerable to disease and other risks. When our bodies age, we need those nutrients more than ever to prevent disease and keep us strong and healthy.

In order to keep our bodies healthy we need at least 3-5 servings of vegetables and 2-4 servings of fruit every day. That is why eating whole foods like raw fruits, vegetables nuts and grains is so essential.

These foods can increase your energy, giving you the pep you need to start your day. Those same foods can also help you lose weight and make you feel fantastic about the way you look and feel.

 Why not get started in the right direction? Not sure where to start? Why not try blueberries, cranberries, grapes, and leafy plants such as spinach or broccoli to start. One simple change is all it can take to change your body and change your life.

SeaAloe, the original Seasilver (Sea Silver) formula, is a whole food vitamins supplement containing 13 superfoods from around the world. Sea Aloe liquid vitamins tastes great and is a natural source of whole food nutrition containing over 80 nutrients and all essential amino acids.


Seasilver Whole Food Vitamins

The hectic lifestyle that most of us live today can keep us from eating a consistently good, healthy and whole diet. We sometimes, maybe often, rely on foods that are processed, maybe even fast food when we’re really on the run.

The truth of the matter is that realistically speaking, we don’t always eat the way we should, which would be to eat meals that are prepared from fresh, whole ingredients. In order to offset the effects of not eating optimally, you probably take a multi-vitamin, or vitamin supplements, and that’s good!

But, are you sure that your nutritional health supplement is doing everything for you that you want to think it is? Vitamin supplements come to you in a couple different ways. They can be synthetic or natural.

While synthetics are molecularly the same as natural vitamins, they still aren’t as good for you because they aren’t “whole.” They don’t come with the added bonuses that you get from natural vitamin supplements, and that’s a sad truth.

Natural vitamin supplements like SeaAloe come with a whole host of co-factors that serve as catalysts to make those vitamins effective. Lab created vitamins are made without co-factors.

Natural vitamin supplements also offer a lack of something – fillers, artificial coloring and preservatives that your body doesn’t need. And, probably most importantly, natural vitamins are “whole.”

What this means is that because they’re derived from sources from nature, you get the whole deal – the co-factors, the complexes, and the additional functional supplements that occur naturally with them. That’s what’s called a whole food vitamin, and these are the best for you.

Maybe you’ve heard of vitamin “isolates.” The word isolates is related to isolated and means that particular vitamin isolate has been separated out and is being dispensed to you in the form of a pill all by itself.

But vitamins don’t work well that way. In nature, they are produced together as a vitamin product that contains many substances that work in harmony, all boosting the effectiveness of each other.

This is much more effective than isolated vitamins or minerals alone. That’s why whole food vitamin supplements are so much better for your body. Often, whole food vitamins come in liquid form.

They’ve been extracted from the source and then made into a liquid that can be consumed easily. This is great if you don’t like to take pills. The added bonus to using liquid whole food vitamins is that the benefit is digested and usable to your body very quickly.

Just like eating whole foods that are minimally processed and cooked from fresh ingredients is healthier and definitely tastier, whole food vitamins are healthier. Processed and fast foods might still contain some nutrients, but because of the processing they’ve gone through to get to your table, the preservatives and other things that have been added, you’re only getting a fraction of the nutrition that you should be from a meal.

The situation is exactly the same with vitamin supplements. Your nutritional health supplements must be minimally processed and contain natural ingredients with all of their beneficial agents in tact.

In this way, your body will benefit so much more than if you take synthetic vitamins that offer isolates, fillers, artificial colors and unwanted preservatives. If you’re serious about taking care of your health, make sure you’re using whole food vitamin supplements.


Whole Food Vitamins

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Whole food vitamins ensure that your body receives and maintains a healthy supply of the vitamins that are required by it to function at optimum levels.

At its most basic level, the human body requires certain vitamins and minerals to carry out processes within the body. This can be anything from helping your eye sight, keeping your immune system strong or maintaining a ready supply of red blood cells.

The human body could not exist without the fuel we put in it, namely the food we eat. However often we do not receive all the nutrients we require simply through food. This is where whole food vitamins come into play.

What are whole food vitamins?

Whole food vitamins are simply vitamins that are made from real whole food ingredients.

Rather than synthetic ingredients, vitamins made from whole foods are natural and obviously, better for you. Experts agree that it is more beneficial to obtain vitamins from whole food sources instead of sources from a laboratory where vitamins are manufactured chemically.

A chemical process often introduces unnecessary and sometimes dangerous ingredients into the mixture which can have unknown long term effects on your health. It’s not worth taking that risk when there is a perfectly formulated whole food option such as SeaAloe.
