Neurotransmitter Glutamate & Dietary Glutamate

Hi, Coach!

I would like to clarify one issue.

As science knows, glutamate consumed with food practically does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier and does not participate in the work of the glutamate neurotransmitter system. Nerve cells directly synthesize the neurotransmitter glutamate right at the endings of the axons entering the synapses. And dietary glutamate has nothing to do with it.

However, in your NT-course and articles you talk a lot (IMHO) about the fact, that a large intake of glutamate with food leads to its accumulation, which will affect the activity of the glutamate neurotransmitter system. How, given what I said above?

Could you clarify this issue. Perhaps I misunderstood something in your course.

Best regards.

I did jump the gun on that one. It’s one of the few updates that will be made in the future.

Waiting for update.
Good luck
