I’ve seen some discussion on this but no official response from the Soylent team. I’m been talking to everyone I know about this stuff and have had many folks express many different concerns. To date, the one compelling argument I’ve encountered is that when taking some vitamins/minerals/etc together (for instance, Iron and Calcium), the absorption, or bioavailability of some of these may decrease or almost disappear.
So, when taking Iron and Calcium together, the body has a more difficult time absorbing the Iron due to an interaction with the Calcium. From what I understand there are many such interactions.
My question is: has this been addressed by the Soylent team? Is the simple fix to just add enough more iron to make up for the decreased absorption?
Would love an official response to this! My apologies if it has been addressed, but I wasn’t able to find anything on the discussion board.
