I believe the problem is usually the reverse. Oxalates don't usually cause leaky guts, but leaky guts can really cause oxalate problems. Leaky guts allow an increased amount of oxalate into the blood stream and this causes excess inflammation... (more)

Forget about the RDA. It's based on a high-phytate, low vitamin D diet and results in the calcification of soft tissues (and fails to prevent osteoporosis) in SAD-eaters because they don't eat enough K2. For those of us who do eat enough K2... (more)

Do not take calcium supplement. 8-10k Vitamin D will bost your calcium absorption at microvili level and reduce calcium filtering at kidney level. You need to supplement K2, 100mcg MQ7 and up to 1mg MQ4. You also need to supplement Mg, 6mg/kg. (more)

Because of better calcium absorption by supplementing vitamin D, could it be possible that it will result in constipation due to lack of magnesium?

True, dairy has a good calcium-phosphorus ratio of about 1.3/1, but the problem with dairy is that cow milk is so high in absolute amounts of phosphorus. When your phosphorus intake gets too high, say over 1000-1200 mg or so, it produces a toxic... (more)

White patches or spots on teeth can be a sign of flourosis or more probably calcium deposits. Either lack of minerals or lack of vitamins (fruit?). I wouldn't ignore them.
