Um, since when do minerals need digestion to enter the cell in the first place? Zinc isn't a protein, fat, or carb! Yes, supplements do go through the digestive tract, but we don't actually digest them as such, we more, absorb them.They don't... (more)

How does phytic acid deplete minerals? Mean if I eat rice with a steak will I not absorb any zinc? I don't understand. Phytic Acid is an anti-nutrient component found in rice, (also found in some nuts and seeds) which bonds minerals and can... (more)

Contrary to what has been stated here, phytate can and will bind with the zinc etc. from meat in a mixed meal. An adult male only needs to absorb about 1.5mg of zinc per day, so a paleoer eating a lot of red meat doesn't really have to... (more)

I seem to max out around 500-600mg/day from food sources alone. Since we're not eating calcium-inhibiting grains and legumes and providing everything else is in balance (potassium/sodium, magnesium, zinc, iron, etc), our calcium absorption should... (more)

What's important isn't whether it has phytate, it's whether the phytate:mineral molar ratio is high during digestion of mineral-rich foods. You could stop eating it, but it'd be just as effective to segregate it from foods like meat, organs, etc.... (more)

I am having some tests done soon for food intolerance for my 5 yr old. I put her on a paleo diet 5 months ago, though when she is at school, she eats pasta daily. (that is the menu in Italy) I am a bit alarmed that she gained so much height since... (more)
