Monosodium glutamate (MSG) has been used as a main ingredient and flavor enhancer since a long time ago. That additive is used in many fast foods such as the instant noodles. It is mentioned in the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) list of generally regarded as safe items. However, at the same time it is suspected to cause some symptoms, what are known as the MSG symptom complex which include:

  • Sweating.
  • Flushing.
  • Headache.
  • Nausea.
  • Weakness.
  • Depression.
  • Obesity.
  • Chest pain, or difficulty in breathing.
  • Cardiac muscle palpitations.

MSG causes heart palpitations and arrhythmias due to glutamate. It's a protein used inside the body as a neurotransmitter to initiate actions. Glutamate is the neurotransmitter the brain, and nervous system use to initiate certain processes inside the body. When you have MSG, the incidence of many diseases increases. Because you get glutamate from an external source, hence the natural functioning of endogenous glutamate is manipulated.

A very good alternative to eating instant noodles during working times, is to eat some homemade sandwiches. Eating fresh food is without doubt the best option to ensure healthy eating and a substantial factor to be healthy generally.

Avoid instant noodles ,processed food in daily life and stay healthy.
