Thread: Does tomato seeds can cause kidney stone ?

    Does tomato seeds can cause kidney stone ?

    Does tomato seeds can cause kidney stone ?

    It has been found that tomato contains lycopene.

    This lycopene is useful for reducing high B.P.

    Tomato is good anti-oxident.

    Four tomatos per day help in reducing high B.P.

    Thus if somebody eats four tomatos a day, will he suffer from kidney stone?

    Pls share your experience.

    Where is the evidence that lycopene or tomatoes in general lead to the formation of kidney stones?

    Aww girl, the juicy seeds in the center are the best part. I haven't heard of anything regarding a relationship between tomatoes and kidney stones. There is a link at the bottom where you can e-mail this group and ask.


    Foods and Drinks Containing Oxalate

    People prone to forming calcium oxalate stones may be asked by their doctor to cut back on certain foods if their urine contains an excess of oxalate:

    * beets
    * chocolate
    * coffee
    * cola
    * nuts
    * rhubarb
    * spinach
    * strawberries
    * tea
    * wheat bran

    People should not give up or avoid eating these foods without talking to their doctor first. In most cases, these foods can be eaten in limited amounts.

    Magnesium increases the solubility of oxalate

    For more than ten years I have known that some say that a magnesium oxide supplement along with vitamin B6 gets rid of kidney stones. If you have calcium oxalate in the stones, and let's say magnesium hydroxide in the urine, or magnesium bicarbonate, or magnesium chloride, ion exchange should eventually convert the calcium oxalate to magnesium oxalate and calcium bicarbonate, chloride, or hydroxide. Even calcium ascorbate is soluble, so vitamin C may help.

    Magnesium oxalate is much more soluble than calcium oxalate: table

    It would seem like an ascorbate of magnesium would be just about ideal.
