Ariel Gail MacLean March 20, 2015 I sure appreciate the longer videos dr. greger, which gives me so many more points to bring up when discussing this with the many people I am trying to influence! It really helps us when you do so much work researching the many complex related ideas which put the puzzle together better for us. The Just Eat More Plants foundational concept keeps surfacing while others get bogged down with various animal vs. plant arguments. Mortalfulofcuriosity March 20, 2015 Hibiscus Teas are blood thinners, making the blood flow easily and thus reduces blood pressure. afrolukas83 March 20, 2015 I just eat plants and I run marathons BOOM! Vegan for life peeps. Edith Spencer March 20, 2015 Saril (Hibiscus tea) is so delicious! And it makes a great substitute for wine! So- have a plant based lunch or dinner, then have some delicious, strong, tart hibiscus tea (boiled with ginger slices and orange peel, then lightly sweetened with apple juice) . It’s really good! balderdashery G March 20, 2015 Ha ha ha! Plants for the win! Thanks Doc! Andy Vegan March 20, 2015 Vegan for the win! Plant power XD Tom Robit March 20, 2015 Love your videos Doctor. They are helping me tremendously. Randy Kreill March 20, 2015 Oh now I see why RunnersWorld magazine is still pumping/pimping chocolate milk, fish, meat, eggs, cheese etc for runners … yes, it’s because they are greedy and clueless … or just greedy? Just clueless? Gabrielle Katelyn March 20, 2015 If you dedicate yourself over the next 21-days and follow The 3 Week Diet as outlined, you will be walking around with 12 to 23 pounds of body fat gone from your waist, hips, thighs, belly and butt. Your clothes will be looser, you’ll look healthier and more attractive…and you’ll have more energy than you’ve ever had in a long, long time. ananse77 March 20, 2015 Doc, you really need to clarify whether the hibiscus in these studies is the hibiscus flower associated with tropical islands, or the plant that’s called “sorrel” in the Caribbean, roselle in Australia, bissap in some West African countries, etc. They are very different, and there is some confusion concerning this. If you look up hibiscus sabdariffa, it is sorrel/roselle, not the pretty hibiscus flower seen on the boxes of hibiscus tea on supermarket shelves. Please, please research and clarify. Jeanette Foresta March 20, 2015 I take 5,000 iu of Vit D-3 and get a Vit B-12 shot every few months or so. In the meantime I take Niacin B3. Having enough niacin is important for overall good health. As a treatment, higher amounts of niacin can improve cholesterol levels and lower it. I got that info on a search. You can also search what foods have B’s in it. The D-3 is the most important for everybody. I would have to lay in the sun all day to get enough that I need My Doctor said. I do take a walk if my foot doesn’t bother me, So I also do weights, stretching, pilates, and whatever else I can. Victor Crosswell March 20, 2015 i would them to sart adding High carb low fat vegetarians and vegans to these studies, would love to see the data. yojimboe March 20, 2015 He’s starting to say,”eeeeh” and “uuuuuuuuh” again.
