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/antio...) and Superfood Bargains (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/super...). Indian gooseberries may also help control blood sugars (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-...) and rose hips may also help with arthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dieta...). Plant-based diets in general may help arthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diet-...) and metabolic parameters (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/metab...). I also have another video on pomegranate juice: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-po... And what's true of pomegranate juice is true of other juices (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/best-...) with one exception (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-f...).

Even if supplements contain what they, say they may not be useful (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dieta...) and sometimes it's what's added rather than what's missing that is the problem (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/some-...).

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/clini... and he'll try to answer it!
