Amaranth greens -- good to eat?

Do you think amaranth greens are good to eat and juice, or do they have too much oxalic acid?

I made a whole bunch of amaranth greens juice and it's definitely making my heart pound, so I don't recommend it. Must be the oxalic acid or other elements. Also gave me a headache!

I'm growing some quinoa greens at the moment... not sure about whether they're good or not as I've never tried them before... but either way I'll just sprinkle a few over salads, I don't have a juicer.
maybe you just had too much?

I believe that there are different varieties. Some are bred specifically to taste good and to be good for you, also. This is what I hear. I will have to look it up further.

OK - I looked it up in my seed catalogue. They say that the type of amaranth green called Calaloo (I believe this is a common food in the Caribbean countries) can be eaten in a salad, i.e., raw. Maybe some of you were trying to eat the young greens of the grain-type amaranth? I tried that years ago, and it was awful.
