In many articles we have already explained how certain foods can be particularly suitable for health. Sometimes, however, even those more commonly considered “healthy” have pitfalls that not everyone knows. We have already talked about it for example in: “Attention, tomatoes can interfere with these common medicines”. For this reason, today we make an analogous example. In fact, care must be taken, this seasonal vegetable could cause thyroid and kidney problems. Let’s see what it is together and find out why we should avoid it.
The great advantages of this type of preparation
We are talking about a food loved by adults and children, spinach. These vegetables are in fact very versatile to bring to the table and adapt to both the simplest and the most delicious recipes. Generally, however, if they are prepared naturally, they are ideal for a low-calorie diet since they contain only 25 calories for every 100 grams. They also bring several benefits: the scientific community has even talked about anticancer and antioxidant properties. In addition, they also have an excellent content of vitamins, specifically those of group A and group C. The first is important for sight and skin. The second, on the other hand, is useful for raising the immune defenses. In addition, apathy, weakness and muscle aches could be due to the deficiency of this precious vitamin. Finally, among the vegetables, they are those that boast a significant content of omega3, a nutrient that can generally be found in fish.
Beware, this seasonal vegetable could cause thyroid and kidney problems
But let’s move on to the possible contraindications indicated by Humanitas. First of all, in fact, taking it can interfere with the use of anticoagulant or diuretic medicines. Then they contain two substances that can create problems. The first is oxalic acid which can increase the development of kidney stones. Then there may be the presence of goitrogens which can be problematic for the thyroid. For this reason, we always recommend that you consult your GP to see if it can be included in our diet.
