  1.Sustancias that alter the absorption of minerals
Some vegetables such as spinach, beet greens, parsley, celery and fruits such as strawberries and raspberries, including cocoa and tea have excellent nutrition with vitamins and antioxidants but also have a substance called oxalic acid and its salts , which precipitates of the calcium we take in the diet, thereby reducing its absorption by the body.

This is no risk to human health, but should know and do not abuse these foods without compensating with higher intakes of foods that provide calcium as milk, yogurt or cheese.

Cereals, pulses and oilseeds have a substance called phytic acid and phytase that hinder the absorption of calcium, copper, zinc, magnesium and iron by the intestinal mucosa.

Dietary fiber has the same effect.

Other vegetables in the cruciferous family such as mustard greens, turnips, radishes, cabbage, broccoli and oil seed rape, have substances called glucosinolates that are capable of generating isocyanates, which interfere with the metabolism of dietary iodine can cause goiter disease if they are abused and not compensated by intake of other foods that provide iodine, like fish.

  3.Sustancias that alter the absorption of carbohydrates
Other foods such as legumes, cereals and tubers have plant substances act in defending it from attacks by insects and microorganisms. When ingested, these compounds hinder the absorption of carbohydrates and proteins.

The digestive system has an enzyme called amylase that are responsible for breaking the chains of carbohydrates into simple links so they can be absorbed and enter the blood.

Wheat and vegetables have substances that inhibit these amylases so make carbohydrates are absorbed less. This makes them suitable in the treatment of diabetes or obesity, although some of these inhibitory substances are destroyed by stomach enzymes.

The digestive system has also substances such as trypsin to break the chains of proteins called amino acids links diet, suitable for absorption and passage into the blood.

Soy, beans, peas, lentils, beans, etc., Have a antitrypsin factor that prevents the absorption of amino acids from dietary protein. But the substance is inactive when these foods are heated.

Other foods such as cocoa, beans, bananas and nuts have substances called tannins , which combine with proteins and interferes with the absorption of these.
