Lowering Glutamate | Curcumin (Turmeric)

Curcumin (Turmeric) – Protects against glutamate and inhibits glutamate release. “Curcumin protects against glutamate excitotoxicity in rat cerebral cortical neurons by increasing brain-derived neurotrophic factor level and activating TrkB” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18420184 “Curcumin Protects Neurons from Glutamate-Induced Excitotoxicity by Membrane Anchored AKAP79-PKA Interaction Network” https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2015/706207/ “Curcumin Protects against Monosodium Glutamate Neurotoxicity and Decreasing NMDA2B and mGluR5 Expression in Rat Hippocampus.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27529496 “Curcumin attenuates glutamate neurotoxicity in the hippocampus by suppression of ER stress-associated TXNIP/NLRP3 inflammasome activation in a manner dependent on AMPK” http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0041008X15000927 “Curcumin inhibits the increase of glutamate, hydroxyl radicals and PGE2 in the hypothalamus and reduces fever during LPS-induced systemic inflammation in rabbits” http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0014299908007449 [...]

Lowering Glutamate | Ashwagandha

Ashwaganda (Withania somnifera)– Protects against glutamate.  Though most commonly known for aiding in adrenal fatigue, this mild herb is protective against glutamate.  We've been able to source it here and most commonly add it to our teas. Water extract from the leaves of Withania somnifera protect RA differentiated C6 and IMR-32 cells against glutamate-induced excitotoxicity. “ASH-WEX pre-treatment inhibited glutamate-induced cell death and was able to revert glutamate-induced changes in HSP70 to a large extent. Furthermore, the analysis on the neuronal plasticity marker NCAM (Neural cell adhesion molecule) and its polysialylated form, PSA-NCAM revealed that ASH-WEX has therapeutic potential for prevention [...]
