Citric Acid Safety
« on: August 13, 2012, 11:38:39 pm »

"  I haven’t read Dr. Blaylock’s book, nor do I have any intention to. I don’t read stuff like that for pleasure. I think the topic of excitotoxins is potentially interesting, although the bit about glutamate in the diet is likely overblown.
From what I understand, it’s secondary metabolic production of glutamate at the level of neurons that does damage, not dietary ingestion of glutamate, like MSG in Chinese food.

I can understand why he says what says.  After all, dosage is everything.  However, it is possible from what I have read to get enough to do a little damage from things like diet cokes and wheys, etc.  We really are ingesting multi-grams of the stuff and even common sense tells you that this isn't the brightest idea.

It kind of reminds me of putting a pesticide in our toothpaste.  Well, yes, dosage is everything, but how could anyone even think of doing that in the first place?!?

exactly, dosage is everything
but I'd like to know whatis bad for me so I can limit my dosage....
I have a water distiller, Im supposed to clean it weekly with Citric Acid(anhyrous) which  just means water-free form ie POWDER

Citric acid is an excitotoxin, is this safe to do?

My guess is that this is a very small amount, but I don't know that for sure.  For the unitiniated, look at this description as to why something as seemingly innocuous  and natural as "citric acid" ends up with excitotoxins in it:

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
