The potential danger in green smoothies is that for some people they can lead to high levels of oxalic acid which can cause kidney stones and many other health problems. This can be a genetic issue. It can be caused by low levels of certain nutrients such as vitamin B6, or by high levels of candida (yeast) in the gut. The Organic Acids Test is the best way to figure out if this is causing you problems. Read Dr. Cheryl Kasdorf’s take on the matter here:
