Red Clover Blocks Damage from Excitotoxins

'Why is there such an increase in Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases? One answer is excitotoxins, chemicals added to food that kill brain cells . One of the most deadly of this group is neurotoxic monosodium glutamate (MSG), found in many processed foods and used heavily in almost all restaurants. 

So what can you do when friends or family want to eat out and this knowledge can spoil the fun? A recent study has found that pre-treating yourself with a supplement of red clover (Trifolium pratense) before eating food laced with this neurotoxin can block damage from MSG. This is good news indeed.'
