Monosodium Glutamate

Monosodium Glutamate – Harmful or Beneficial?

Most of us are quite fond of using monosodium glutamate or MSG as a food additive without knowing anything about the additive powder we are using. Studies have shown that MSG can produce different good and bad effects into the human body. Generally, the use of MSG is safe but what we do not know is its effect if we take it too much or for too long. 


In the past few years of studies, Food and Drugs Association was able to receive different results of researches wherein the content of MSG adverse some reactions on the food that we eat. One of the good sides in MSG is that it adds appeal on the food that we eat.  Although there are some cases that claims that MSG is not safe for intake if it takes beyond the daily requirement.

This neurotransmitter is related to Balance D, Daxitrol, Kavinace, and TravaCor.


Some of the reported health conditions that were badly affecting the impression of MSG are the risk of having headache, excessive sweating, chest pain and palpitations. Aside from these, there are reports as well that it is responsible for giving numbness, burning sensations and weakness to a person.  Most of the researchers cannot present hard evidences and facts that can prove all these claims. According to some studies, these body reactions were not those serious and just side effects. But because of the fact that one can experience side effects, then one should take MSG very carefully.


The harmful reactions in the body should not be ignored. It should always be the person’s responsibility to report to their doctors any unhealthy symptoms or condition that they feel in their bodies since there is no concrete evidence that will prove yet if MSG will be harmful or beneficial to people. In addition to this, because of the claims on good and bad effects of MSG, researchers are still continuing to take time studying on it.
