  1. I've read that Tumeric …mixed with a little black pepper does wonders. Alternative treatments use this as a drink 3x's a day!

  2. Raw mushrooms, even the edible ones, contains toxins which should be cooked out… a lot of plant-foods should be cooked for this reason.

  3. 80p per kg is pretty good value. I pay 6€ / kg in germany but that's organic brown ones. 7€ gets you organic oyster.

    where do you work?

  4. It's interesting that mushrooms are definitely something that are seem to be not as much talked about. Thanks for this bit of enlightening info 🙂

  6. This is great, I love white button and cremini mushrooms. They are great for soups, sandwiches, stirfrys and other dishes. So good and versatile.

  7. would you see more or less benefits from eating mushrooms raw in smoothies etc (as prefer to eat raw where possible)? Thanks in advanced if anyone can offer advice 🙂

  8. You mean white button mushrooms. Some other kinds don't have any at all, for instance chanterelle or bay bolete.
    (I had to look up common names in English!)

  9. A product called Purple mushroom extract healed my crohns for a good year, I was eating anything I wanted to.
    Another time when I didnt know anything about mushrooms I was eating the white button ones everyday because I liked the taste and I had no signs of crohns.

  10. Hi Greger, Thanks for enlightenment on this topic.
    I have trouble understanding the RQ(fold) / mushroom types.
    Is higher value better? I assume the other way but better to ask then get wrong assumptions.


  11. Hi everyone! Very cool video, Thanks! Have you heard the rumors about this mind blowing product at "Brendt Miracle Arthritis Cure" website (do a search on google)? My boyfriend got extraordinary results and got rid of their arthritis outbreaks overnight!

  12. Hi Dr.Greger. Will you be looking into the benefits of Ling Chi or,Turkey tail mushroom ? They apperently according to the hundreds of studies, have adaptogenic properties , and an immune modulation type property.

  13. As a Nutritional Therapist and distributor of the most potent medicinal mushroom and herbal extracts on the planet…For sure Ling Zhi  as well as Lion's Mane Tremella Cordyceps help asthmatic symptoms greatly!

  14. Mucosa…. a good reason to keep the foreskin and make the sexual assault of infant circumcision illegal. Prosecute the mutilators.

  15. Wait, doesnt this suggest that the body is identifying the mushrooms as something it needs extra protection from, in the form of a stronger sigA barrier?

  16. I know this is old but in vitro or in test tube or dish means nothing compared to in Vivino studies and it's not hard to do in Vivio studies for mushrooms

  17. If you now have a new found interest in all things mushroomy take a look at our site at https://www.Vitalherbs.co.uk where we have a wide range of medicinal mushrooms. 😊👍🙏🍄

  18. Lately, I’ve seen a lot of medicinal mushroom products. What do you think of chaga, cordyceps, lion’s mane, reishi? Should I include them in my daily diet? I just read the book Healing Mushrooms by Tero Isokauppila, the founder of Four Sigmatic, maker of medicinal mushroom products—any truth to it? I’d also like to know about shilajit. What do you think of shilajit?

  19. That was your informative post, here's several suggestions about anti-inflammatory dietary supplements…
    Curcumin: Research has shown the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin are as effective as some pharmaceuticals, but without the negative effect of toxicity. This powerful antioxidant also supports joint health and cardiovascular function.
    Resveratrol: This extract found in red-wine helps to quell inflammation, regulate the malfunctioning immune response, and protect against cancer.

    Evening Primrose: The unrefined evening primrose seed oil supplies a concentrated dose of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an Omega-6 fatty acid that is commonly lacking in the diet. GLA is converted by the body into DGLA, an anti-inflammatory substance.
    (I learned these and the reasons they work on Mackyns Nature Guard site )

  20. Ben following Dr.Gs science based advice for almost 2 yrs, and health has improved to the point now where at my last blooded in Feb 2018, my doctor told me, based on the results, I am virtually heart attack proof. As they say proof is in the pudding, kep it up Dr.G, my family and I will be forever grateful to you

  21. How did they prove that mushrooms are not harmful to the body and thats why the body is responding with more antibody production?

  22. Dr. G, I've been reading about how extra supplementation w antioxidants may help cancer cells survive and possibly thrive. None of the reports are suggesting diet but antioxidant supplements. In the same way The high dose vitamin A supplements were shown to create conditions for more not less lung cancers in studies. Can you report more on these studies? Tyvm!

  23. I ate 2 cups of steamed mushrooms and 1/2 cup steamed Arugula with my breakfast. ☺ I also ate a banana and toast.

  24. Love it Doc! You know I would love to see a vid or a shout out on mushrooms like you did for turmeric and leafy greens reviewing if there is any or different benefit from warm mushrooms / what temperature they become toxic – I am guessing they are still healthy warm all the way up until the point they become black and crispy #paulstamets

  25. Easy ways to easy more mushrooms:
    Substitute chopped, seasoned mushrooms for ground beef,
    Substitute sliced, marinated mushrooms for steak strips,
    Add to soup, use to top salads, use as a topping on sandwiches, and dip raw mushrooms into hummus.

  26. Dr. Gregor, thank you ❤️ you prove to me every day that what my parents taught me about nutrition and healthy life style (in plain English: you just have to do sports young lady everything else is an option) was true. And here I am 40 yers later, doing sports every day and making my own plant based food every single day. Fit as a fiddle

  27. I had terrible allergies my whole life, got a bad case of pneumonia and bronchitis at 14, found out it was MRSA. Doctor gave me the right antibiotic and I got rid of it but suffered from asthma for years afterward. After going vegan my allergies and asthma are non existent

  28. Can some one explain to me the difference between heightened immune system and heightened inflammation? I guess there are markers of how prepared you are to fight infection (like IgA) and other markers for how active your immune system is in fighting infections. On the right track? More details could be welcome. Thanks.
