Russell Blaylock, Excitotoxicity author, glutamate negative impact on hippocampus
IPAK-EDU Director's Science Webinar, a series to subscribe to individually or monthly. Subscribers can access all the recorded archive sessions or review new ones.
Russell Blaylock broke ground in the field of glutamate overactivity and it's negative impacts on hippocampus cells of the brain. They are rich in NMDA receptors which is activated by glutamate or aspartate. Excitotoxins causing Excitotoxicity was the descriptive term in his book of similar title.
Calcium is allowed to rush into the cell, and now we know from Cells, Gels, and the Engines of Life by Gerald H. Pollack, that will lead to condensing of intracellular proteins and reducing structured water zones - and water might leak out somewhere. Increased intracellular calcium also causes endocannabinoid release from the cell membrane which is anti-inflammatory initially and then breakdown products have inflammatory signaling. Calcium increase inside the cell also can cause overactivity in general of the cell, which can lead to cell death from excess metabolic waste build up, like lactic acid and other ROS chemicals.

IPAK-EDU is an independent education center with varied science and health classes by different instructors - the goal is to offer more people access to correct information. James Lyons-Weiler and other educators teach the courses which are video based but scheduled for live audience viewing first with question and answer time. A link to recordings of the session are shared later. No credits or graduation type services of standard academia are included - the goal is skill building and self improvement.

“Quinolinic acid is a neuroexcitotoxic metabolite of L-tryptophan and an agonist of N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors. Increased levels have been found in people with a variety of neurological diseases including AIDS (Heyes et al., 1992) and macaques infected with simian immunodeficiency virus (Smith, 1995). Quinolinic acid levels may be elevated in the CSF of animals with inflammatory nervous system disease. Therefore, they may be useful as a marker of inflammation and perhaps also as an indicator of prognosis (Smith, 1995).”

Luteolin would be protective against excitoxicity per Russell Blaylock. Anti-senescents would also likely help. See quote below.
Curcumin or quercetin in a nano-formulation as they aren’t absorbed in the bioactive form otherwise was a recommendation. Thorne brand is one he trusts for supplements but there was another company I forget the name - it might be this company, with vegetable capsules as a plus. (oneplanetnutrition), otherwise not inexpensive and fairly small doses.
Russell Blaylock mentioned that gelatin is high in glutamate and is being used in a lot of supplement products but better to get the vegetable [cellulose] capsules. Glyphosate can also be in commercially raised animal products. Omega 3 fatty acids, diets high in fish, and vitamin D3 were mentioned as being protective.
Link I shared: "Naringenin, hesperetin, hesperidin, quercetin, fisetin, kaempferol, rutin, apigenin, luteolin, nobiletin, tangeretin, genistein, wogonin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), theaflavin-3-gallate (TF2A), and procyanidin C1 possess potent antisenescence effects." https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s40290-022-00444-w
Addition, Food sources of luteolin: Luteolin is a flavonoid "found in celery, thyme, green peppers, and chamomile tea," (18) and "chrysanthemum flowers, sweet bell [green/red/orange] peppers, carrots, onion leaves, broccoli, and parsley [7 8]. (21) Reference in Ground Ivy… post which has food sources for a few other phytonutrients too.
See page Phytonutrients on jenniferdepew.com for more food sources of some of the phytonutrients mentioned in the earlier antisenescence quote.
