The SMD Spice Mix Can Serve As A Preservative In Your Food

Do you know that due to the preservative nature of some spices, the SMD Spice Mix can serve as a preservative in your food?

Yesterday evening, I forgot to put my Crocker fish in the freezer after I left it marinating in the colander! It stayed there for 12hours and guess what, the fish is still looking real good and no foul smell. Slide left to see the video.

Our spice mix could serve as a natural preservative in your meals(we do NOT recommend you leave fish or meat outside the refrigerator for more than an hour maximum please!). See more reasons for you to ditch the artificial preservatives in the seasoning you add to your meals?

The method you use in cooking, with the kind of seasoning you use will determine how long your fried rice would stay without refrigerating. Use our method and spice mix and be impressed!

Why MSG is so Dangerous⁣

One of the best overviews of the very real dangers of MSG comes from Dr. Russell Blaylock, a board-certified neurosurgeon and author of “Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills.” In it he explains that MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death, causing brain damage to varying degrees — and potentially even triggering or worsening learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease and more.⁣

Part of the problem also is that free glutamic acid is the same neurotransmitter that your brain, nervous system, eyes, pancreas and other organs use to initiate certain processes in your body.⁣

Even the FDA states: “Studies have shown that the body uses glutamate, an amino acid, as a nerve impulse transmitter in the brain and that there are glutamate-responsive tissues in other parts of the body, as well. Abnormal function of glutamate receptors has been linked with certain neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s chorea. Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in damage to nerve cells in the brain. ⁣

Many other adverse effects have also been linked to regular consumption of MSG, including: Obesity, Eye damage, Headaches, Fatigue and disorientation Depression⁣

Although the FDA continues to claim that consuming MSG in food does not cause these ill effects, many other experts say otherwise. According to Dr. Blaylock, numerous glutamate receptors have been found both within your heart’s electrical conduction system and the heart muscle itself. This can be damaging to your heart, and may even explain the sudden deaths sometimes seen among young athletes. ⁣

He says: “When an excess of food-borne excitotoxins, such as MSG, hydrolyzed protein soy protein isolate and concentrate, natural flavoring, sodium caseinate and aspartate from aspartame, are consumed, these glutamate receptors are over-stimulated, producing cardiac arrhythmias. ⁣
