More leafy greens are always good for you, the more the better, right?
As usual, when you make a general statement about everyone in the population, that statement may not be valid for everyone. When it come to leafy greens, they are high in oxalates which give some people trouble when they form oxalate crystals in the body.
Of course, if you start a new regular habit of drinking green smoothies, you’re going to initially feel better. But oxalate crystals can accumulate in various parts of the body and the irritation can cause chronic pain.
A classic case of a little bit of something being good but a lot of it being not so good.
