Is it safe to eat Marjoram in large quantities daily... like 100g a day? Dry Marjoram that is.... whichever kind.
And are the copious amounts of calcium in it highly absorbable?
THanks in advance!

I've only known Marjoram as a Spice for seasoning. It is also used in Oil form for Aching Muscles, hypertension, Rheumatism, Mostly Topical applications. Are you taking it in Pill form or What? And is there a Special ailment you are trying to heal with it? I'm sure someone will drop by with possibly the answer you are l@@king for.

Hey I want to eat it as a calcium supplement +)
Amounts Per 100g Serving
Pretty awesome mineral supplement. I guess the vitamin K could pose a problem???/

There are better ways to get calcium than eating a dried herb. Try the fresh stuff, but I would guess it's way too strong to eat in quantity. That's why it's used as an herb and not as a vegetable.

Why would you wanna rely on one source for your calcium? Why not get it from a variety of raw foods? Even if you love the stuff, I think you'd get sick of it real fast if you ate large amounts of it day in and day out. At least I know I would.

If you're eating greens even semi frequently on a raw diet i really doubt you'll have problems getting enough calcium.
Try entering the fruits, veggies, salads and green smoothies into fitday.com or nutridiary.com and just take a look at where you're getting calcium from, from the foods you're already eating.
The whole point of living raw and eating naturally is to let food give you everything you need, not start supplementing with non food before you even know how your body reacts or notice any problems. You'd have no idea if what you're doing is helping or hurting you.
