Toxin Absorbers and Reducers

Ammonia and Glutamate Are Primary Neurotoxins

Individuals within the autism spectrum often have excessive levels of ammonia and glutamates in the brain which can act as neurotoxins. This caused by overgrowths of pathogens in the intestinal tract that produce toxins as by-product.


Excessive ammonia and glutamates both switch on NMDA receptors in neurons in the brain. NMDA receptors mediate anxiety. Any foreign chemical substance that can stimulate the NMDA receptors will potentially generate a constant wired or high anxiety state, feeling tired but wired.

NMDA Receptor, a glutamate receptor is the primary molecular device for controlling synaptic plasticity and memory function.

When there is an infection in the brain NMDA receptors may also be overstimulated, and the neuron may become damaged or die. Ammonia can also contribute to brain fog. Glutamate excitotoxicity can lead to hyperactive behavior.

Overgrowth of yeast and bacteria in the intestinal tract may produce ammonia as a byproduct which then leads to excessive levels of ammonia which can easily cross the blood-brain barrier.. A diet high in animal protein can also increase levels of ammonia in the body. Strong ammonia like body odor can be a symptom of high levels of ammonia.

The products listed below have research indicating they either help to reduce levels of glutamates and ammonia or protect the brain against neurological damage when high levels of glutamates and ammonia are present. Additional agonists that prevent activation of NMDA receptors include: magnesium, zinc, and taurine.

Other Neurotoxins

Individuals with neurological conditions including autism often have high levels of additional neurotoxins, including oxalic acid, proprionic acid, and p-cresol.
