Lowering Glutamate | Hesperidin Flavonoid

Hesperidin Flavonoid (found in citrus peel)- neuroprotective against glutamate excitotoxicity. “The citrus flavonoid hesperidin exerts neuroprotective effects and could cross the blood-brain barrier. Given the involvement of glutamate neurotoxicity in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders, this study was conducted to evaluate the potential role of hesperidin in glutamate release and glutamate neurotoxicity in the hippocampus of rats.)””These results demonstrate that hesperidin inhibits evoked glutamate release in vitro and attenuates in vivo KA-induced neuronal death in the hippocampus. Our findings indicate that hesperidin may be a promising candidate for preventing or treating glutamate excitotoxicity related brain disorders [...]

Lowering Glutamate | Cysteine

Cysteine-  Reduces excess glutamate. Found in oats, broccoli, red pepper, onion, banana, garlic and will become an antioxidant when converted to glutathione. The body converts the supplement NAC to cysteine. “If you take NAC, you’re giving your body an efficient way to soak up excess glutamate, and reducing oxidative stress and inflammation over time by giving it glutathione. As a result, this helps alleviate a number of different mental health issues.” http://www.optimallivingdynamics.com/blog/the-powerful-antioxidant-proven-to-treat-6-mental-illnesses Why Is This Important? Glutamate is also the most abundant neurotransmitter, responsible for regulating over 50% of the nervous system. It [...]
