Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Although I have been drinking green smoothies and juices for years, and still do, I got clear yesterday, in my studies, how certain greens have high oxalic acid.
This affects our bone density as well as our teeth! I realized that this is the root of my teeth challenges since going raw.
Although I varied my greens, at times I did get a lot of spinach, swiss chard and beet greens as well as parsley.
Oxalic acid has benefits and as always, balance is key in what works for your own body!
Here are some foods high in oxalic acid and low as well.
HIGH OXALIC ACID CONTENT:
Lambsquarters, beet leaves, purslane leaves, spinach, swiss chard (leaves & stalks), rhubarb, parsley, amaranth leaves, sorrel.
LOW OXALIC ACID CONTENT:
Dandelion greens, most fruits, kale, watercress, escarole, mustard greens, turnip greens, kale, broccoli, tomatoes, asparagus, cabbage, and most greens not mentioned.
Remember to ROTATE YOUR GREENS!
Much love from my healthy teeth loving heART to yours! Muah, Bette Bliss
