Plants contain oxalates, which are naturally occurring compounds that can cause harm to the body. It’s the plant defense mechanism so you never eat it again.
🍃Oxalates are found in large quantities in plant roots and leaves, the part of the plant that’s essential for it to survive.
⚠️For some, oxalates can exacerbate kidney stones, digestive issues, mineral absorption, and many other symptoms.
🔎We also produce small amounts of oxalates ourselves within our cell’s mitochondria (Kreb cycle).
👥There is also a genetic component of some people producing more oxalates within the body.
🥩Oftentimes the best way to reduce the oxalate load is by reducing the plant-based foods.
