Lamb's Quarter is considered a weed by many, just as dandelions are. You need to pick Lamb's Quarter yourself. Some will have Lamb's Quarter growing in their backyard. Others will need to pick it from a field. Regardless of where you pick Lamb's Quarter from, avoid areas that are sprayed with chemicals or are near busy roads and highways.
Due to the fact that Lamb's Quarter is a green juice, you will find it beneficial to have no more than about ¼ of your juice consisting of green juice.
Lamb's Quarter is high in oxalic acid and therefore should be avoided by those who suffer from or are at risk for kidney stones, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis and those whose stomach is easily irritated. Read my notes on oxalic acid for more information.
Since Lamb's Quarter is high in oxalic acid, you should also avoid combining Lamb's Quarter with other vegetables that are high in calcium, such as broccoli. Oxalic acid combines with calcium to create an indigestible compound. You should also avoid eating calcium rich food immediately after eating or juicing Lamb's Quarter or any food high in oxalic acid. This includes foods like tofu.
Lamb's Quarter is similar to alfalfa in that it has a very long root system. As a result, Lamb's Quarter also have the ability to draw up lots of nutrients. This makes Lamb's Quarter an excellent source for many vitamins and many minerals.
