I consume a lot of wheat bran due to digestive issues. i read that it contains phytates that hinder absorption of some nutrients. is it safe to continue eating soaked wheat bran daily or am i causing potential anemia? i take multivitamins. thank you.

Bran: Anything in excess is bad. Try to balance your meals and condition. You can also keep a food diary and evaluate your symptoms. This may help you titrate how much you can eat.
