  1. Hi, What is this "evodo" polyphenol supplement that you refer to? Why are you limiting your omega 6 intake to 10 grams? In 2002, the Food and Nutrition Board of the U.S. Institute of Medicine established adequate intake (AI) levels for omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids They established an Adequate Intake (AI) for omega 6, linoleic acid, which is 14 grams for males over the age of 51. Yes, I know about the recommended ratios of omega 3 to omega 6, etc etc........ I'm just comparing the AI, Adequate Intake, of Omega 6 linoleic acid......to your maximimum daily 10 grams. I also fall short of the recommendations for omega 6, and this is why I bring it up.

    Calcium for vegans

    mccoy: You might also find this helpful: https://www.vrg.org/nutrition/calcium.php Calcium in the Vegan Diet by Reed Mangels, PhD, RD I would combine that info with the info from below: https://www.ars.usda.gov/northeast-area/beltsville-md-bhnrc/beltsville-human-nutrition-research-center/nutrient-data-laboratory/docs/oxalic-acid-content-of-selected-vegetables/ Oxalic Acid Content of Selected Vegetables Then it could become more complicated if other factors were added in, such as phytates. Hope this helps a little.

    Calcium for vegans

    mccoy: Regarding calcium for vegans, you may find this to be a little helpful. It's a talk for vegans on "Where do you get your calcium and vitamin B12". Do keep in mind that the intended audience probably has a lot less knowledge and experience than you do, so the material is presented at a beginner's level. But you may find something of interest there. It's on You Tube. I pasted the URL, but I see the website has changed it and shows the entire "photo". They do go into oxalic acid in spinach, parsley, swiss chard, and beet greens, and how those are not good calcium sources as a result of the oxalic acid. Then they present some food sources of calcium for vegans. Probably you could ignore the rest.....Also, just so you are forewarned, they are advertising for a course they have on nutrition for raw vegans, so they spend quite a bit of time discussing their product.
