Oxalate Balancer contains a combination of antimicrobial herbs to aid in the elimination of potential pathogens and restoration of microbial balance in the gastrointestinal tract. It also contains calcium, magnesium, and zinc to bind with dietary oxalic acid so that it can be safely excreted from the body, and vitamin B6 to support healthy glyoxalate metabolism. Oxalates are compounds that naturally exist in many generally healthy foods and can come from overgrowth of yeast or fungus or mold. They bind to metal ions and form precipitates, which may cause various health problems depending on where the precipitate is deposited. Individuals with elevated oxalate levels may experience pain as the result of oxalate crystals precipitating with minerals in tissue. Those with AGXT, HOGA1, GRHPR, or SPP1 genetic variants have been found to have a higher amoutnts of oxalates. Consider Oxalate Scavenger in conjunction with Oxalate Balancer to provide probiotic support.
