Myth on Phytate: Phytates are Bad

Myth on Phytate: Phytates are Bad Correct info : Phytates can have some really positive health benefits. They do have some anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and may help with reducing blood glucose levels and kidney stones Phytates can bind to some minerals like iron, calcium and zinc, and possibly inhibit absorption, but at the same time, if you're eating vitamin C-rich foods, this can help absorption of some vitamins and minerals Acidic foods can also help break down phytates in foods, as well, so it's not necessary to avoid phytates. Right combination of foods and right way to eat food is important
