4. MSG



Monosodium glutamate is used pervasively by manufacturers of packaged foods in order to boost flavor and extend shelf life. Found in everything from chips to frozen meals, MSG can cause light-headedness, nausea, and anxiety.

In order to keep yourself in a positive mood, choose organic products or options that specifically promote themselves as MSG-free.


The FDA doesn’t require manufacturers to list MSG as an ingredient, so you have to be careful about which products you pick!

5. Hydrogenated Oils

Hydrogenated oil is another product used to extend the shelf life of packaged products.


The danger of hydrogenated oil is that it is known to create trans-fat in food, which has a direct effect on your cholesterol and weight because it is more difficult to digest.

Avoid the fogginess and moodiness caused by hydrogenated oils by switching to healthy oils such as coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil.

6. Food Coloring

Although many common dyes are added solely to boost color and flavor, there are certain dyes that are accompanied with several health dangers.

For instance, Red No. 40 has been connected with hypersensitivity and ADHD, while Yellow No. 5 has been linked to allergic reactions and asthma. Avoid these unnecessary ingredients by choosing natural, organic products with no coloring.
