Glutamic Acid

Postby LR1234 » Fri Feb 10, 2012 5:56 am

Hi all,
Just wondering if there is anyone out there with a better functioning brain than me that can tell me is glutamic acid bad or not?
Is it in all protein???
I have seen studies saying that MS patients have issues with metabolising it (see below) But I am wondering if it is coming from somewhere else rather than the diet and is ok to consume.

I want to buy this Pea protein powder from Lamberts as I am interesting in upping my protein.
I know Glutamic acid is in copaxone (which I take already) so I am confused whether taking this protein product will do more harm than good. I want to up my L-valine levels as I have read it might be helpful in fighting viruses and is what Valtrex is derived from......

Abnormal glutamic acid metabolism in multiple sclerosis.
Westall FC, Hawkins A, Ellison GW, Myers LW.
We have found extensive amino acid abnormalities in multiple sclerosis sera. The most consistent abnormality is an elevation in serum glutamate, which is most striking during relapses. The increase in glutamate in the patients does not occur sharply during the onset of the relapse. Instead it appears to rise gradually within a month or two prior to the onset of the clinical relapse, to reach a peak during the relapse and then to slowly decline

You have probably already read this article posted by ikulo: ... ments.aspx

It describes glutathione, glutamate and glutamic acid.

Glutamic acid is naturally abundant In natures foods. Seaweed is an excellent source of glutamic acid, amino acids and a abundance of nutrients and minerals at a reasonable priced. Manufactured glutamic acid is deadly and hidden in many processed foods under many names. MSG is a notorious example. Myself, I make sure I get the essential amino acids and get the rest in my diet. If You are interested in avoiding virus, colds, bacteria and get healthy, vitamins, minerals and supplements are the way to go. Six to 20 grams of vitamin C a day, depending on age, weight, stress and health. There is an almost fool proof way to gauge your health. Take grams of vitamin C every day until you reach a point where you get voluntary diarrhea, Thats the body telling you it has all the vitamin C it needs and a little more. If done a little at time, adding one gram every day to saturation will it gives you and your body time to equalize to the new level of health you thought you had lost. This toke time. For me, it was sixteen months. I had started when I was about 77. I have always lived my life one day at time and home was where I hung my hat even in the Air Force. It was at my 60th high school reunion it all came together. I was 6’1” and 190 lbs having lost 27 pounds without even thinking about it. Looked younger than anyone at the reunion with no health issues. I am now 81. It all the had just snuck up on me. Sorry to have run on like this. Internet: ‘’ Read about Dr F R Klenner and his 28 papers and I think all this stuff will make sense. He died in 1984. I am open to questions. Also see my other posts. Dr Klenner was a fascinating character …dez...
