Excessive Effects Of Micin Consumption, This Impacts On Health

The use of micin with sufficient quantity is claimed not to cause health hazards. Nevertheless, some studies pointed to k 's that consume excessive micin believed to cause adverse effects on the body and health.

Like salt and pepper, the use of micin or often called MSG ( Monosodium glutamate ) for food flavoring in sufficient quantities has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition, the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) of the Republic of Indonesia has also recognized the safety of its use. So far there is no accurate data to suggest a safe dose of micin use, but these institutions say micin use in doses between 0.5 to 1.7 grams per day, does not indicate any side effects. However, if the body gets this type of additive intake excessively, then there is the possibility of negative reactions in the body.

Recognize the Content of Micin in Food

Micin or monosodium glutamate can naturally be found in foods containing high protein. Here are some foods that contain MSG:

  • Beef, fish, and poultry.
  • Seaweed.
  • Soy sauce.
  • Parmesan cheese.
  • Tomato.
  • Breast milk.

Micin or MSG has other names such as sodium glutamate, monosodium L-glutamate monohydrate, glutamic acid monosodium salt monohydrate, yeast extract, hydrolyzed vegetable protein or HPV, potassium glutamate, sodium caseinate, and natural flavorings. These names are usually listed on the food product label if micin is included as an additive in the diet.

The other types of foods that contain micin are processed foods or packaging, such as dried meat, meat extract, poultry pack broth, and starch.

Negative Impacts of Over Use of Micin Based on Research Results

Here are some reports and studies that claim the use of excess micin can cause certain clinical conditions that have a negative impact on health, among others:

Chinese Restaurant Syndrome
This condition can cause symptoms such as a headache, numbness, redness, tingling, palpitations, chest pain, nausea, weakness, fatigue, and drowsiness. This happens when a person consumes micin more than 3 grams. It gets worse when people who consume it are sensitive to MSG. However, these symptoms may not necessarily be caused by taking micin alone.

Nerve cell damage
A number of studies suggest that high-dose MSG glutamate can act as a toxin that causes damage to nerve cells. Even mentioned, MSG can cause impaired brain function and damage to various organs. This element can also cause a number of diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and impaired concentration when learning.

Asthma
Other studies have also shown consuming micin with excessive doses can cause asthma. The amount of dose that can trigger these symptoms is 3 grams in one meal.

Obesity and Obesity
Another study also mentions, taking excessive micin is believed to cause obesity or obesity. But there are other studies that suggest that micin can make a person full longer and help maintain weight. Therefore, the effect of micin on the rise and fall of weight still need to be investigated further.

Headaches and hypertension
Studies show that long-term consumption of micin can lead to an increase in blood pressure. Some people also look more sensitive to micin and will experience the effects of headaches. But the cause of this is not known.

Destructive cells
Some researchers also claim that MSG can damage cells and genetic material. This micin effect is predicted to damage lymphocytes or white blood cells.

Kidney damage and depression
Another study mentioned that taking long-term micin can cause kidney damage and depressive depression symptoms due to changes in serotonin, a signal in the brain that affects mood and emotion.
But it should be underlined also, that in general the adverse side effects of micin still need to be ascertained with further research.

So, as long as you consume micin or foods that contain low levels of micin, you do not have to worry about possible negative effects. Therefore, limiting the intake of micin can be a wise move to avoid possible side effects.

If you have allergies or intolerance to micin or MSG, it is advisable to avoid foods or food products containing these additives. You can replace them with organic fruits, vegetables, and meats. You can also consult a doctor to get advice according to your condition.
