L-glutamate is a coding amino acid in protein synthesis. It is a non essential amino acid for mammals. It can be transformed from glucose in vivo. It is a white or colorless flake crystal at room temperature, slightly acidic and non-toxic. Slightly soluble in cold water, easily soluble in hot water, almost insoluble in ether, acetone and cold acetic acid, and insoluble in ethanol and methanol.
It can combine with blood ammonia to form harmless glutamine, reduce blood amine, so as to reduce the symptoms of liver coma. In addition, it participates in brain protein metabolism and glucose metabolism, promotes the oxidation process and improves the function of the central nervous system. It is used to prevent and treat liver coma, recovery period of liver coma and severe liver dysfunction. Glutamate can also be used for adjuvant treatment of coma recovery period and nervous system diseases (schizophrenia, epilepsy, etc.) caused by various reasons.
1. Used for pharmaceutical, food additives and nutritional enhancers. 2. It is used for biochemical research, and medically for liver coma, preventing epilepsy, reducing ketonuria and ketemia. 3. Salt substitute, nutritional supplement and flavor agent. It can also be used as an agent to prevent magnesium ammonium phosphate crystallization in canned aquatic products such as shrimp and crab.
