Food Taboo: Aspartame


Another member of the excitotoxin group, aspartame affects fibromyalgia pain in the same way as MSG does. It can increase pain sensitivity but sending pain signals to the brain at abnormally high intervals thus worsening pain in fibromyalgia patients. Aspartame can be found in most sugar-free candies, sweets and drinks.
