  1. Awesome! Thanks again Dr Greger. I just bought my 1st bottle of Nutr Yeast this weekend. Great flavoring agent, with LOTS of good vitamins and virtually NO sodium! 😀

  2. Most kids just don't eat enough fruit and veg, so low blood serum vitamin A and C levels. I don't think it is that complicated as to why their immune system is vulnerable — plus they are around other kids. Still very interesting though.

  3. I am confused now… in a previous video you tell us to stay away from yeast as it increases the risk of IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Diseases). Brewers and Bakers have a lot more IBD because of yeast. I feel like it’s not worth it to eat yeast to prevent a few benign colds when it increases the risk of developing such debilitating diseases.

  4. Nutritional yeast definitely triggers some immune response in my body, every time I consume even a tablespoon of it, I wake up with red spots around my nose the next day, not acne, just red spots.

  5. nutritional yeast is not necessary though, just keep a healthy gut microbiome, which you get by following a whole food plant based diet,

  6. Who all received their bookplate(s) already? 🤗
    I hope to see a video here with some of the best inscriptions suggested!
    I think he wrote mine walking on the treadmill 😯

  7. Another good study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23340963 but you don't have to buy supplments, get them from plant based whole foods. Mushrooms – particularly shiitake, maitake, reishi, shimeji and oyster varieties – are good sources of beta-glucans. In addition to promoting healthy cholesterol levels, the beta-glucans in mushrooms have been shown to boost immune system function.

  8. Can you do a video about the effects of animal dna and cells being injected through vaccines and their effects on health?

  9. Did the study day if they were using raw or cooked yeast?
    Because, unless the good property exists because it's not active, the yeast in bread should do the same.

  10. It took me a while to find a nutritional yeast fortified, to get extra b12. WHYYYY they had to load it with topic acid… 230% DA. Unbelievable.

  11. Now I'm conflicted. You had done another video about the potential link between baker's yeast and crohns disease. Maybe I'll have to go back and rewatch that video

  12. Fab, ive not bought nutritional yeast in months but best get some in now that its cold season. Nurtitional yeast = happy kids = happy mummy 🙂

  13. A big request here Doc. I am suffering with dyslexia and its affecting my occupation as I find it hard to concentrate for long periods of time. Can you give me some insight on how to remedy with food? Thanks.

  14. Oat milk contains beta-glucan too – but the structures of beta-glucan vary from source to source, so it isn't going to be identical to the type found in this yeast.
    Anyway, since becoming a vegan I've noticed a dramatic difference in colds. Rarely get them, and the few I've had have been pretty minor compared to before. I can't think of another possible cause for the difference so far. I still work in an environment with students and endless colds going around in the winter, I just seem to not be getting them any more.

  15. so nutritional yeast works almost as well as high dose vitamin C for preventing colds and flu. but can it treat infections such as tetanus like vitamin C can. Can it treat whooping cough as well as high dose vitamin C? can it cure all acute viral infections like high dose vitamin C can?

  16. +1 for nooch. One of the most noticeable health benefits that I’ve noticed from being on a plant based diet is my immune function (even years before I began occasionally consuming nutritional yeast). I rarely get sick anymore!

  17. This is great. I like adding a bit of nutritional yeast to our tofu scrambles. Not only does it give a nice flavor but apparently lessens our chance of getting sick too? Awesome!

  18. It seems from the charts displaced in the video that the lesser amount of 1/16 of tsp worked better than 1/8 of a tsp. Any reason why this would be true. Perhaps even LESS than 1/16 tsp would worked even BETTER? ? ?

  19. Who all says "until now" with him!? Thank you for this important information… I hate to see my babies get sick, this will help. Thank you!

  20. Question: Why were the results better with the group taking only 35mg BYBG compared to those taking 75mg of BYBG ??? Is this yeast product NOT dose dependent ???

  21. Can you make a video on how to use diet to help, fight, recover, and prevent lymphoma cancer(hodkins and nonhodkins). I was wondering if you has a video on it but I couldn’t find anything. So I searched online to see what foods help fight lymphoma and found nothing. Why is this?

  22. Candida is pronounced /ˈkandɪdə/, with the stress on the first syllable. It's the feminine form of candidus, which in Latin means white (as well as albus/alba/album. )

  23. Somebody needs to make a montage of every time Dr. Greger says "put it to the test". It needs to be done. It could make an awesome remix.

  24. How do you get beyond the taste of nutritional yeast? I am not a picky person by any means, but that flavor is just nasty!

  25. I am so confused – they dont sell "nutricional yeast" exactly in my bio shops, but it says "weizenkleie" or "weizenkeime", which could be the translation, but google translates it as "ernährungshefe". which I cant find :/ could you please help what should I search for or is "weizenkleie" exactly what Im looking for? xx

  26. so would it be safe to infer that the reason many vegans are sick so infrequently is due to consumption of nutritional yeast?
