now today we’re gonna talk about ammonia

and the toxicity in the brain now I have

done some videos on ammonia before

especially if you have a strong odor in

your urine and what that comes from this

is mainly going to be the toxic effect

in your brain it’s not a bad thing but

when you’re fasting or you’re doing the

ketogenic diet you’re generating a lot

of ketones as your fuel ketones are

acidic ammonia is basic so ammonia is

generated to counter some of the acidity

from the ketones it’s not a bad thing

your body is just compensating for the

acidic urine so if you’re fasting and

your urine is very very strong like

ammonia I would not worry about it

and now if you’re consuming a lot of

protein you may smell like an ammonia

type odor that can be either some

ammonia or just a really concentrated

byproduct of ammonia which is called

urea which is less toxic that is usually

not a problem unless you have liver

damage now if you have liver damage or

kidney damage you may not break down

ammonia Foley to urea and so it could

actually build up and it could back up

into the brain as well but ammonia is a

byproduct of protein amino acids now the

friendly bacteria in your gut also make

proteins they make neurotransmitters so

if there’s an imbalance with your

microbes you could actually generate

excessive amounts of ammonia and that’s

one cause of ammonia in your brain as


it’s from the gut and one of the

solutions medically is that they use an

antibiotic to lower ammonia of course I

have a different viewpoint on that but

if your gut is not right that could

affect what’s going on in the brain when

ammonia elevates in the brain it can

really be toxic to the neurons and

affect your clarity of thinking your

cognitive function your mood and you can

actually even go into a coma from that

now if you also over exercise that could

produce a problem because your body is

in this catabolic a breakdown Effect of

amino acids so this ammonia could come

from that potential

now another interesting thing relates to

this bacterium glyphosate from Ronda


it’s an herbicide in GMO products really

goes after your bacteria in your gut and

one of the deficiencies that’s created

is a manganese deficiency and manganese

is essential in producing enzymes to

break down ammonia so if you’re

generating ammonia from your gut

bacteria that could be the manganese

deficiency from what you’re eating

you’re just having too much glyphosate

and that’s really the underlying cause

which is in so many foods so as a

natural remedy manganese can help

detoxify ammonia another natural remedy

to lessen the amount of ammonia in your

body is sauerkraut why because you’re

enhancing the friendly bacteria plus

it’s a prebiotic or fiber which feeds

the microbes so it’s a pre and a

probiotic vegetables will give you the

fiber to make more friendly bacteria as

well as the phytonutrients to help the

liver in the phase 1 phase 2

detoxification so vegetables do help the

liver and the kidney detoxify waste also

go on a moderate protein diet try not to

do too much especially if you have a

liver problem or a kidney issue because

that can just generate too much ammonia

alright so there you have it these are

the four things that can help reduce

ammonia in your body
