Thank you for striving to be the best @nutritionfacts! Reply Chris K says: December 11, 2019 at 3:15 pm Thank you for the clear explanation of the studies and the science Reply Gzpo says: December 11, 2019 at 3:19 pm A report stated that flax can increase cancer in the prostate gland. Can you check that out for us? Thanks. Reply Pleiadian says: December 11, 2019 at 3:21 pm SO flaxseed have these benefits also combining them to an omnivorous diet or must be strict plant based to achieve those results? Reply Vassago says: December 11, 2019 at 3:23 pm You have to chew them very well because if you swallow them whole the nutrients will not be absorbed, right ? Reply RipeApple says: December 11, 2019 at 3:24 pm Looking young, dr. G! Reply Maple Flavor says: December 11, 2019 at 3:26 pm but what happens if we whole food vegans don't have arachidonic acid like these dumb boomers on SAD? what benefits would we have by consuming flax seeds? i'm hesitant because of it lowering free testosterone Reply lenny harry says: December 11, 2019 at 3:29 pm ground flaxseeds everyday for 2 years in my morning smoothie… damn dont i feel smug lol Reply A says: December 11, 2019 at 3:32 pm Shared. Thank you again. Reply Mike J. says: December 11, 2019 at 3:52 pm I like the new presentation style. Much easier to watch. Most of the nutritionfacts.org videos feel like college lectures where you can't take notes fast enough. They just give me the same feeling – that feeling where you're getting behind and you just can't catch up. Do I have to mention I hated that feeling? Reply MotherOfCats says: December 11, 2019 at 3:53 pm Eating my three ingredient breakfast cookies (banana, oatmeal, flax) while watching this. 😉 Reply Cat Lover says: December 11, 2019 at 3:55 pm Thank You….. Reply Jeremy Thiessen says: December 11, 2019 at 4:03 pm This is fantastic. Our family can attest to this as we have members that USED to be on BP meds, but now enjoy flaxseed with all its side affects like happiness and quality of life. Also, just an observation, that all healthy roads lead to FIBER. God I love Fiber! Reply Diane Hall says: December 11, 2019 at 4:10 pm The new format is sooooo distracting. Please stop it, and just go back to the original format of presenting the data. I had to rewind this a couple of times as I was so distracted by the hand movements, etc. Love Dr. Greger—can’t stand this new format. Reply Sandra E. A says: December 11, 2019 at 4:21 pm I take 1 tblspn of grounded flaxseed with soymilk, blueberries, oats, walnuts, and sprinkled with nutmeg every day.

Reply hernan kaufmann says: December 11, 2019 at 5:21 pm Loving the new format of the videos, much more engaging and dynamic Reply Believe in Steve says: December 11, 2019 at 5:24 pm I love the new way of presentation!! Your visualcharisma adds a lot to these videos! 🙂 Reply Anna LA says: December 11, 2019 at 5:33 pm It always blows my mind that people can’t get the RDA of 25-30g of fiber. Even without trying I get about 50-60g a day. Can’t wait for my copy of “How Not To Diet” to arrive!! Reply KinaStar says: December 11, 2019 at 5:44 pm Flax Seeds = Fountain of Youth ❤️ Reply Alba Cesar says: December 11, 2019 at 5:51 pm How to eat flax seeds? Reply TestingU 4Research says: December 11, 2019 at 5:59 pm Including Greger himself in video is distracting, already too many stats and charts to focus on in his videos. Go back to just stats and charts. Reply Robb's Homemade Life says: December 11, 2019 at 6:01 pm I have a blueberry smoothie every morning. I was adding a spoon of ground flax to it every night and would drink it in the morning. I began having digestive problems over several months and felt tired. I stopped the flax and have felt better. I still recommend the dried blueberries though and thank Dr Greger for his information on them in the past. Reply teak43 says: December 11, 2019 at 6:05 pm I like the videos where you can see Dr Greger Reply sunny pepper says: December 11, 2019 at 6:09 pm Hard to pay attention to the science with Dr. Greger standing in front blabbing away. This new format is lousy. Plus the poor guy has been so coached to over-gesticulate for the sake of getting an audience that now he can't help himself, even though he has risen to a point that less drama would actually be more convincing for a larger more conservative audience. Reply Evil Scientist says: December 11, 2019 at 6:11 pm So, is it better to grind them yourself? Do you get more nutrients from freshly ground flaxseeds, or does pre-ground flaxseeds have the same nutrient content? Reply הערוץ של בל ועמית says: December 11, 2019 at 6:13 pm What about the oxidation of the omega 3 in heating? Reply Ken Swiatek says: December 11, 2019 at 6:58 pm The reason why flaxseed works is that it is a significant source of anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fat. The Flax seed should be ground so it is absorbed. Omega 6 fats are inflammatory. Reply NutritionFacts.org says: December 11, 2019 at 7:02 pm Check out all of my flax videos on the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5TLzNi5fYd9VnRr95gZd0r9-ZjV5N9lZ Reply Christopher Hanson says: December 11, 2019 at 7:03 pm Is there any difference between eating the ground flaxseed raw vs cooked? I add a tablespoon of ground flaxseeds to my oatmeal every morning just a couple minutes before it's done cooking. Would I be better off adding it raw? Reply memefeed says: December 11, 2019 at 7:13 pm you don't need anti inflammatory seeds if you don't eat inflammatory plants to begin with. Reply Laurie Anne says: December 11, 2019 at 7:17 pm Enjoyed the body and facial drama he put with it, too. Love this Doc! Reply Karla Dawn Jones says: December 11, 2019 at 7:21 pm Oooo! I like to see you talking Dr. G! Reply justgivemethetruth says: December 11, 2019 at 7:40 pm Does a vegan diet have to give everyone such huge ears? 😉 Reply justgivemethetruth says: December 11, 2019 at 7:42 pm I eat ground up flax seeds from my coffee grinder with oatmeal, and it tastes better up to a point … about 1 tablespoon. I actually prefer it with the flax than without. So, my question is what can you eat that has that much flax in it? If I put more than about 1.5 tablespoons of ground flax in my oatmeal, it starts to taste not so good. Reply justgivemethetruth says: December 11, 2019 at 7:50 pm Can anyone down a whole giant muffin with multiple tablespoons of ground flax seeds in them without massive sugar and flavoring? Isn't that just as bad? What simple recipe or food product can I find to eat that will give me the amount of flax seeds I need to have these healthy effects? Reply justgivemethetruth says: December 11, 2019 at 7:53 pm Love the graphics … you should have a playlist that just has some of these graphics on them that make a point. Whoever is making these they are very talented. Reply Triple C says: December 11, 2019 at 8:26 pm I've been eating flax for years and this just reinforces my thoughts on it, thanks very much. Reply Dark Sky says: December 11, 2019 at 8:29 pm What about a video on flax seed vs black chia seeds Reply Andrew Snow says: December 11, 2019 at 8:42 pm Dr Gregor! Your video production is so good. I not only love your content, but the way you present it is so appealing. I've often been inspired by how you highlight and animate the studies. I've tried to replicate it on my videos using keynote for these animations. But your green screen and movement now takes it to a new level. You've not only mastered your medical craft, but also your production craft. Thank you for doing what you do. Both in nutrition, and in content creation. Reply stefaniecg says: December 11, 2019 at 9:03 pm I don’t like Dr Gregger being physically in the video. It is just distracting and one cannot properly read the scientific paper, which is the most important part. Having Dr Gregor audio suffice. Reply Vegan Rebel Scum says: December 11, 2019 at 9:08 pm Go flax yourself! Reply Fecal Transplant Donor says: December 11, 2019 at 9:14 pm I'm lovin' the new format! 😘 Reply Jan Schachtschabel says: December 11, 2019 at 9:21 pm Thank you very much for your work.

Reply Elie Chouinard says: December 11, 2019 at 9:35 pm Dr. Greger I am an 81 year old male, the number one item on my bucket list is to get healthy before I die. Last January I was taking 13 different meds in the morning and about 6 meds at night 365 days a year.I don't take any now. My maximum weight was 333 lbs. I now weight about 220 lbs.I still have about 60 lbs of fat to loose. I consider losing the weight less important than getting rid of the meds. A few years ago I went to a lecture on the China study at Loma Linda University which started me on my journey to get seriously healthy. I had tried all kinds of programs, pills, products, and potions but it wasn't until last January that I discovered a way traverse chronic health issues. I adopted a Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle. Eliminating all dairy, meat, salt sugar and oil 99% of the time. I haven't got to 100% yet but I've come a long way from the China Study lecture. Here is my problem, I can't get enough sleep. I have to pee about six times a night. Can you help me and others who may have the same problem?

Reply Jayman says: December 12, 2019 at 2:30 am Sometimes I'll want a high calorie smoothie and use like 3/4 cup of flax, 12 tablespoons, digesting this is not an issue for me, is any other possible reason to be concerned or otherwise limit flax consumption? I'm serious about my flax! Reply MJ says: December 12, 2019 at 2:35 am I like Dr Greger in front of the green-screen better than his office on the treadmill. Had to get that off my chest.

Reply Gold Gold says: December 12, 2019 at 6:16 pm I like Dr. Greger and his voice… but I find seeing a person while I try to absorb the information to be too distracting. When ever there is text, I’m pulled between reading it and looking at him. I think shots of him speaking and then only text on screen would be okay for me. But he is just so distracting… maybe because he is very energetic, so my eye is drawn to the motion and his speech pattern can get very fast. My eyes are farting between him and the visuals… it is overstimulating for me. I’m sure some people like this… but it is very hard for me. Best wishes.
