Lowering Glutamate | Quercetin Flavonoid

Quercetin- Inhibits glutamate release and is found in onion (highest in red onion), raw chili peppers, asparagus, kale, berries, plums, peppers, broccoli, sophora japonica leaf/flowers. However, we have also used this supplement. “These results suggest that quercetin inhibits glutamate release from rat cortical synaptosomes and this effect is linked to a decrease in presynaptic voltage-dependent Ca(2+) entry and to the suppression of PKC and PKA activity.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23933436 Protective effects of onion-derived quercetin on glutamate-mediated hippocampal neuronal cell death “This is the first report on the detailed mechanisms of the protective effect of quercetin on HT22 cells. Onion extract [...]

Lowering Glutamate | Bee Pollen

Update: I've had several questions as to where we've sourced our bee pollen.  While we have historically purchased ours from our local health food store, here is a link for a great organic Amazon option, Greenbow Organic Bee Pollen. Bee Pollen-  There has been a recent article out indicating the neuroprotective benefits of bee pollen on excess glutamate. The article shows that bee pollen effectively reduced the neurotoxic effects of methylmercury by improving neurotransmitter defects, inflammation, apoptosis, and glutamate excitotoxicity.  This study also confirms that mice treated with methylmercury exhibited increased levels of glutamate and low [...]
