No MSG Sample Shopping List (Series) Eat Healthy, Eat Disciplined, Stop Hurting, and Feel Better

(Always read food labels and look for the hidden MSG alias names like Natural Flavors, Modified Food Starch, Yeast Extract, Malted Barley, Mono Sodium Glutamate, etc.)

Much has been researched and written on the effects of MSG (Mono Sodium Glutamate) on the human body. The following information provides much “food for thought”. I want my patients to be healthy and happy. It really is true that “we are what we eat”. This information is meant to inform. Of course, how it applies to each individual will vary, and each individual should consult their personal physician before adjusting their diets, as one may have conditions contraindicating the consumption of some of these food stuffs. Also, particular store references may not be complete. These are just ones of which I’ve been informed. Feel free to research the effects of MSG and let me know if you disagree with the studies you review.
