Too much Sarbloh?

Recommended Posts

i didnt think it was possible but i read a thread on my favouritest sikhawareness on the negative effects of sarbloh bibek (before i carry on lemme remind u i am 100percent for sarbloh bibek, but im miles off even trying it).....

basically a few people claimed that using sarbloh utensils for everything was not good for the body, and aparantly "a bibi" got hospitalised for too much iron in her.

well i did a search on google and it seems that only trace amounts of iron go from cast iron pans etc to food......so it might b ok.....but is sarbloh the same as cast iron? and if ur eating from sarbloh all the time cud it be bad for u?

ive looked about and it seems that iron poisoning usually happens with kiddies who eat their parents iron tablets. but the RDA iron is 10-15mg a day.

in the days when i was excited on protein and fat in food when i was training propa, i would have pulled out everything in the fridge and had a look at all the ingredients B) but i dunno.......10mg doesnt seem like much.......and toxic levels is 50 and over ?????? and is the iron released into the food iron ions or just normal iron atoms (unionized?)

maybe someone good at science can answer this one.........i also read that ur average stainless steel pots n pans put nickel and stuff into ur food.....which is not good for u at all....so we are probs ok. overall im still skeptical its bad but theres a lil doubt..........maybe back in the day they didnt get to eat as much so made it up with extra sarbloh? n thats why SGGS says eat littl

e?

Sat Sri Akal:

Yes...sarbloh utensils can contribute iron to the diet, which can contribute to too much iron. Key word is CONTRIBUTE!!!

Many other factors must be present before the minimal contribution of sarbloh would cause iron toxicity.

And if you want to counter that point, simply talk about pregnant women, who are quite regularly prescribed iron because they become deficient. Perhaps some sarbloh could help them out?

Not in favor of or against sarbloh...but it is easy to argue either way.

If Guru Gobind Singh jee expects his gursikh to eat from sarbloh, there must be a great significance to it and should be carried out when possible in life and should be a part of our everyday routine.

Besides, the main problem with vegetarians, e.g. Sikhs is that we lack iron, therefore by following Guru jees order, we overcome this problem.

Maybe that lady also ate meat, or she ate eggs. maybe she was also taking multivitamin supplement with iron in it. maybe she was eating all these modern al jal (nonsense foods) like cereals etc, which are fortified with vitamins and iron. maybe she's lying or article is false.

If you are eating a simple clean diet (veg/satvik), Sarbloh Rehit is most beneficial. The amount you eat of such foods is accordance to your body, don't worry about getting too much iron from eating too much of such foods, that doesn't happen. You will only get stronger and healthier.

I'd be inclined to believe this if Nihang Singhs all around were constantly getting hospitalized, but they're not.

Obviously, the vast majority of Sikhs don't eat in iron, but that's exactly what they did before the aluminum pots and pans and such. Were Sikhs hospitalized for iron poisoning then?
