» Epicatechin protects against brain injury
Posted on Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 1:10 am:
Researchers have discovered that epicatechin, a compound in dark chocolate, may protect your brain after a stroke by increasing cellular signals that shield nerve cells from damage.
This might also protect against MSG-toxicity if it is taken as a high dose suplement.
Also. The herb Uncaria sinensis (relatee to Cat's Claw) used in Asian traditional medicine might be helpful:
From Journal of Traditional Medicines (in Japanese only) ”Protective effect of Uncaria sinensis on glutamate-induced acute neuronal death in cultured rat cerebellar granule cells”
It would be great if someone could find these substances, try them and report back.
