The Truth about MSG | Healthy Food

The truth about MSG is that it’s everywhere
and it’s dangerous. MSG stands for monosodium glutamate which
is a flavor enhancer added to many foods. But it doesn’t have to be labelled as MSG,
it can be labelled as a kind of a sister or a free glutamate. So you might find it on an ingredient label
as hydrolyzed yeast extract or nutritional yeast or brown rice syrup. So if you see those on a label you may want
to question whether that product is a good idea for you. MSG is also an excitotoxin; that means, when
it enters your body it can make its way to your brain and it can really light up and
overpower your brain cells. Because what it’s doing is it’s enhancing
the flavor of the food it’s added to. What it does when it gets to your brain is
it overpowers your brain cells and it can actually cause a myriad of issues including
anxiety, migraines, inflammation and it can cause obesity over time. So we want to avoid MSG.
