We all know spinach is a good source of iron, and it contains many health benefits… BUT, do we all know the side effect from eating spinach?

Spinach = Calcium Blocker.

Despite how good it tastes, guess we gotta go easy on it. When you eat spinach with other foods, the total amount of calcium that you could have absorbed are interfered by this oxalic acid in spinach; and thus, many amounts of calcium from other foods and the spinach itself go to waste.

Here’s the good news, there are many vegetables that can give you as much as nutrition:

  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Bok Choy
  • Chinese Cabbage
  • etc…

Sometimes you just miss eating spinach… Guess that’d be fine! You still can eat spinach occasionally, preferably by itself, so you won’t waste the calcium from other foods… And get your calcium daily intake later on ;)
