DESCRIPTION: An independent review of the effects of açaí berries was recently published, including studies on immune function, arthritis, and metabolic parameters. Here are the older açaí videos I referenced: Antioxidant Content of 300 Foods (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/antioxidant-content-of-300-foods-2/) and Superfood Bargains (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/superfood-bargains-2/). Indian gooseberries may also help control blood sugars (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-diabetes/) and rose hips may also help with arthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-osteoarthritis-treatment/). Plant-based diets in general may help arthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diet-rheumatoid-arthritis/) and metabolic parameters (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/metabolic-syndrome-and-plant-based-diets/). I also have another video on pomegranate juice: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-pomegranate-juice-that-wonderful/ And what's true of pomegranate juice is true of other juices (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/best-fruit-juice/) with one exception (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-fruit-whose-juice-is-healthier/).
Even if supplements contain what they, say they may not be useful (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-supplement-snake-oil/) and sometimes it's what's added rather than what's missing that is the problem (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/some-ayurvedic-medicine-worse-than-lead-paint-exposure/).
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/clinical-studies-on-acai-berries/ and he'll try to answer it!
