  1. Mmm! Thank you! I knew blueberries were good for us, but this explains why I feel so much better when I add them to my cereal.

  2. I'm diabetic or was. Blueberries I can eat a lot of without my sugar going up. I eat probably two cups a day. I love Blueberries. Great video.

  3. Love blueberries, going to start growing them this year for our kitchen garden. They are so delicious. 😋😋🙏🏼🔥

  4. 300grams of blueberries is one serving apparently there's only 250g in the organic frozen blueberry packages i buy and i only put about 100g in my oats 200 if i eat a double portion of oats.

  5. If berries are expensive in your country, look for purple potatoes or purple yams … they have the same anthocyanins that blueberries have. It's also present in large amounts in the skin of eggplants, in purple/black grapes, etc. There's plenty of non-berry sources of it. If you go with grapes, make sure you eat the seeds… purple/black grapes with seeds have even more anti-oxidants (and a wider variety of them) than even blueberries.

  6. I buy freeze dried powder of various berries(blue berries, pomegranate, tart cherry, AMLA, etc.) and make my own capsules. Much easier to consume large amounts of nutrients and less expensive.

  7. I don't get how science reviews and this science video, measures amounts in "portions" and "cups"! Wtf is a portion or a cup!?
    Grams! have you heard about grams? Use it!

  8. The people commenting are so full of themselves on your videos it’s hilarious. I don’t even watch I just come to read the bickering in the comments lol.

  9. I love blueberries! I add them to my smoothies all the time 🙂 I also like making raw deserts with them or just having them fresh in the summer ☺️

  10. Just buy dried blueberries, it's cheaper and if powdered blueberries work then dried definitely does. Plus they taste good and not frozen bleh. You can order online ones with no sugar added/unsweetened and they taste just as good.(not all online brands are equal but some are really good)

  11. I buy a 1-pound package of wild blueberries at trader Joe's for I think like $3 and change. No need to spring for the organic wild blueberries because the regular don't use pesticides anyway. They're so small, flavorful, and extremely blue. Don't get them on your clothing or they'll be permanently stained!

  12. But does ingestion of berries INCREASE insulin levels when eaten by the type II diabetic, or does blood glucose/insulin levels remain CONSTANT when eaten, as is done when fats alone are ingested?

  13. Perfect, started with the berrys. Making smoothies with Blueberry, Macha, Pea Protein, Almond Milk, and green apples. Thank you. Need to get my blood sugars down, talking out all sugars, except for the low glycemic fruits and low glycemic juices, aloe vera juice…(not sugar added).

  14. This is a great video, like most of your videos. However, there is something new that is literally producing miracles in the medical world for diabetes. You might want to check this out. https://youtu.be/t3HRJ8f9pTg

  15. Q: Wich part of the day is the best for taking vitamine supplements? After dinner meal, or right before bed time when you go to sleep?

  16. We want antioxidants, but we also want to breathe deeply to oxygenate the cells, right? I'm also hearing that it's good to drink diluted forms of food grade H2O2 to help raise oxygen in the blood. So, which is it? Should I breathe more shallowly and eat more blueberries to increase my longevity, or what?

  17. Excellent ☺️☺️☺️☺️ your videos are literally saving people from sicknesses/ disease / obesity/ premature deaths, Your videos are improving the lives of thousands of people, I would love more videos on the Blue Zones/ Centenarians/ Super Centenarians links to plant based diets ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️
    Praised be Yahweh that all ingredients necessary are in the plant world, Even the Bible says the world was vegan up until Noah’s Ark, and while the world was vegan, human lifespan was dramatically longer, beyond 100yrs of age ☺️☺️☺️

  18. what is the fructose limit? I know Japan has recommended people stick to 2 fruit servings a day, (and their country has the longest lifespan in the developed world) ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️

  19. At 1:39 it looks like a couple of radishes would be good too, so if you have blueberries with your morning oatmeal, a few radishes with lunch or dinner would keep the anthocyanin benefits going.

  20. Does anybody know if he has a video on memory. Im only 18 and have horrible memories. I’ve heard dha/aha help so I’ve been taking vegan vitamins and eating flax every day. Also I use those apps that are supposed to improve memory. I never ate seafood growing up so is the damage done already? Or is it because of something else?

  21. Mes parents ont vécu dans un environnement où les bleuets sauvages sont en quantité illimité et sans frais puisqu'on les cueille nous-même. Ils en ont mangé depuis leur tout jeune âge. Ils ont été actifs toute leur vie. Ma mère a eu tous les problèmes de santé que pourtant les bleuets devraient protéger : démence, maladie auto-immune, cholestérol élevé, dépression, etc. et décédée à 82 ans très malade. Mon père a aussi mangé des bleuts plusieurs fois par semaine toute sa vie. Il a été moins attentif à son alimentation en mangeant des tartes au sucre, des beignes, du beurre, des viandes grasses, du sel et un digestif ou deux tous les soirs et il est passé 90 ans et tjs actif et en forme. Pas facile à comprendre des fois!

  22. Everyday blueberries keeps the doctor away but not dr Gregor as we need him to make us choose good nutrition.

  23. Fucking he'll man all his info over the years has caused me shit man I never shut up I've done a wicked book I need punishing tho haha I'm on it promise to keep the word up doc🆒️

  24. Berries everyday organic that is
    Doesn’t matter what the price
    Point is. Investing in my health
    Is so worth 🥰❤️🌱💕

  25. Hi all,

    Id like to know what your thoughts are on the blue zones?

    All the blue zones ate 95% + plant based, and beans, greens and starch were at the forefront of their diets. There was no ketosis, 65%+ was carbohydrate. These people are renowned for being the healthiest and longest lived populations in the world.

    This whole carnivore, plants are bad mentality just doesn’t make any sense to me.

    However I am vegan but I am personally starting to think that a 100% plant based diet isn’t optimal. From looking into the blue zones it seems that a 95% plant based diet with the addition of an egg 2 – 4 times a week and fish or meat once a week could be the answer to why a lot of people can’t sustain a vegan diet?

    But yeah, I’m keen to know what you all make of this?


  26. I recollect in the past you saying that Blackberries where better than Blueberries..

  27. Hey… just to let you know.. I have genetic high cholesterol, I m 34 and high activity level.. could t lower my cholestherol . From the summer time I have frozen 20kg bio blueberries and eating about 400grams each week and susprisingly all my cholesherol fractions went down by 35% I was extremly shocked

  28. I am a keto heavy meat eater. I eat lots of pasture raised chuck roast and fat. Along with 5 servings of nuts per day. I really dislike most of Dr. G's content as I think most of it is actually wrong, and his studdies are usually weak and dont compliment each other. However this one was different. I will have to go to the studdies themselves and take a look at how they were designed and what their full results were, but I was impressed at the free radical protection of blueberries, although much less so with the insulin sensitivity.

  29. Unfortunate downsides to berries: the commercial varieties are said to be high in pesticides (members of the "dirty dozen"), and almost all berries these days are sold in plastic packaging, which should be avoided for the benefit of all.

  30. Love this video and information! You are my inspiration to eating whole food plant based diet. I have just created my first video about my health! Would like everyone support to make more healthy content! ❤️

  31. It is now time to respond to the fast “unhealthy” food industry and it's franchises. This can be led by the MDs and other professions who so eloquently explain the reason it is needed.

    I envision such a response would use the McDonald's playbook starting with its golden arches. Instead of arches a giant silver V would be underlined with the franchise name: Whofoplaba (short for Whole Food Plant Based). It would serve both take-out and dine-in. 
    A super salad bar offering no less than 25 vegies would be the centerpiece. Of course it would include nuts and seeds. The menu would range from raw broccoli and cauliflower with a wide choice of hummus dip to cooked rice and beans, steamed vegetables, varieties of starches including baked potatoes. To round out the menu selections choices can be made from the many vegan recipes created and already published. A highlight would be where customers could request customized personal plates. 

    A bonus for customers would be their opportunity to purchase many of the Whofoplaba books available.
    McDonalds is successful because it bought the land upon which it built the structure. Thus it had absolute control of what was offered and how it was managed, else the franchisee would be have to go.
    I am addressing this suggestion to the many Whofoplaba doctors and other professionals, some of who are listed below. 
    ToT. Colin Campbell, PhD, Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, John A. McDougall, MD, Joel Fuhrman MD, Neal Barnard, MD, Brooke Goldner, MD, Michael Greger, MD, Michael Klaper, MD, Joel Kahn, M, Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, Garth Davis, MD, Alan Goldhamer, DC,Doug D, Lisle, PhD, Robert Ostfeld, MD, MS, Ellsworth Wareham, MD, Matthew Lederman, MD, Alona Pulde, MD, Dean Ornish MD, Ron Weiss MD, Robert Lustig MD, Kim Williams MD, Joanne Kjong MD, Anthony Lim MD, Brenda Dsavuas RS, Micelle McMacken MD, Tati Kvis MD, Benjamin Benulis MD, and so many more.
    Iam also asking the vegan community to offer your support as future customers. On March 1, 2019 I start my third year as a vegan. Two years ago I was obese, had diabetes and high blood pressure. After watching the youtube videos of most of those listed above, I am no longer obese and do not have high blood pressure or diabetes. I am 78 years of age and hope to make it to 100.

  32. I've been eating about a half cup of blueberries in my oatmeal for breakfast every day for about a year maybe. I don't feel hungry till noon.

  33. I'm still wondering about the effects of protein on the antioxidant power of blueberries though. You released a video saying the casein protein in yogurt binds to the anthocyanins, thus rendering them useless, but what about other proteins, like soy or pea protein? Do these proteins have a similar effect? Do berries have to be eaten by themselves to be effective?

  34. Thanks! I have blueberries on my organic oatmeal every day. Fresh from my garden when in season. Corn flakes are not particularly "sugary," Doc. 3g of sugars. A small ear of corn has more. Frosted Flakes would be another story at 10g per serving.

  35. I buy frozen berries like blueberries and cherries and reheat in microwave in the morning for breakfast and in the evening for a snack if I need one! Very convenient.

  36. Holey schamoley! Why isn't this research commonly known? I mean, out there it seems like the whole diet thing is still a mystery, and people think all kinds of crazy things are true. But the science behind it seems to be pretty well understand, and has been around for a crazy long time! What's the deal?!?

  37. in your chart at 2:50 it says 75g, but in the conclusion at 3:45 it says 300g. that seems a bit much. now what is my takeaway from this?
