Here is what you need to know about the dangers that cooking seasonings can inflict to our bodies and how they can damage our overall health.
Maggi, Kitano, Ajinomoto, and Knorr are very popular and first choice brands for millions of people. The main reason why people buy these stock cubes is because they think that they are healthy, but not everyone knows that their flavoring contains an ingredient that is extremely dangerous. This ingredient is called monosodium glutamate.
Monosodium glutamate is a chemical additive that can cause skin allergies, vomiting, irregular heartbeat, depression, dizziness, tachycardia, nausea and irregular heartbeat. If you are using industrialized spices every day, you can experience some pretty serious health issues, because glutamate will stimulate the production of acetylcholine in the endocrine system, which is a substance that can reduce the absorption of glucose in the human body.
High amounts of acetylcholine can lead to Alzheimer’s disease and weight gain, and according to some experts – some neurodegenerative conditions.
Keep in mind that the taste of these stock cubes is a sign of just how powerful the chemical is. The truth is that almost every brand adds sodium glutamate, and it is added to almost any processed food these days, especially in beef, chicken, and vegetable broth cubes.
This ingredient will make us eat more because it has the ability to block the neurological function of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is assigned to control our appetite, and by blocking it, our body does not know how much food is enough. This is the main reason why it is very important to avoid eating this compound at any cost.
If you need a cheap, simple and delicious solution, you can always use frozen or fresh natural spices, previously dipped in coconut or olive oil and then frozen in ice cube trays. This way you can just take out a cube and then add it to your broth, a procedure that is much safer and far healthier than using the spices that these popular brands produce.
