Monosodium glutamate.

It excites more than just your sense of taste.

It is common to hear the acronym 'MSG' misused.

Often the term is used in reference to any glutamate found in a food or drink, but that is inaccurate.

Specifically, MSG is monosodium glutamate.

The lone sodium molecule easily breaks away from the glutamate protein molecule after ingestion.

This makes MSG a potent excitotoxin.

There are many other sources of glutamate.

For example, gelatin is produced by hydrolysis.

This creates a product with 10% glutamic acid.

Following is a multipart video series about MSG featuring Dr. Russell Blaylock.

Near the end of Part 1, and again in Part 2, the news team mistakenly labels aspartame as a form of MSG.

As indicated above, errors like this are common.

Aspartame is excitotoxic but it's a completely different substance.

Here is a list of excitotoxins used in foods and drinks.

In Part 4 the news team suggests buying milk that is pasteurized but not homogenized.

Instead, consider investigating whether milk is appropriate for consumption — the majority of people are intolerant and don't know it.

If milk is tolerated, consider finding a source for raw dairy products.

Organic Pastures is an example in California.
