    • Safa Jordan on December 31, 2022 at 3:26 am

      When he says strengthening the immune system does it mean increasing immunity or modulating it?

    • Antoine Primiquire on December 31, 2022 at 12:12 pm

      Anyone here giving freeze-dried mushrooms to their kitties?

    • Rat on December 31, 2022 at 12:39 pm

    • Jasmin Brown on January 2, 2023 at 12:19 pm

      Thank you.

  2. Blue Fish on December 30, 2022 at 12:06 pm

    Another one I’ll add is the Enoki mushroom, they’re long and skinny and get stuck in your teeth but they have the anti-cancer properties too. Another one I like is the King Trumpet, largest of the Oyster mushroom family. If you happen to have an Asian grocery close they’ll have most of these mentioned.

  3. El Newbie on December 30, 2022 at 1:08 pm

    I take 10 mushrooms in gummy form, you can really see the benefits of it.

    • Mary-Sol Del Campo on January 2, 2023 at 7:55 pm

      Why do they delete your post?

    • ConstanceConnie Freitag on January 2, 2023 at 11:56 pm

      Probably so it doesnt become a means for people to exploit others

    • El Newbie on January 3, 2023 at 12:11 am

      @Mary-Sol Del Campo competition, they don’t want other products to be advertised on their channel and it’s completely understandable, I tried saying it in a way it would not involve advertising at all yet they deleted the comment.

    • Domenico Berardi on January 3, 2023 at 2:07 am

      Mushrooms 🍄 in gummy form !? I never heard of it ..

    • Mary-Sol Del Campo on January 3, 2023 at 8:21 am

      @El Newbie Thank you for your answer. It is silly to erase info as I will find it no matter what. 😊

  4. lilstarfishdude on December 30, 2022 at 2:58 pm

    This is very interesting info! Thank you Dr. Berg!
    Is there some special way these mushrooms should be prepared, or should they be eaten raw?

    • luistripzz on Instagram on December 30, 2022 at 4:16 pm

    I have been cancer free for three years now. Without a doubt, the biggest improvements to my health have come from what I have learned here from dr.berg. I have implemented the diet used by guy tannenbaum, and fast 20 hours daily. I continue with a very active lifestyle of long distance cycling and yoga, and feel completely energized. I have also learned to forage natural reishi, turkey tail and chaga mushrooms from the forest here in British Columbia. I consume them daily, primarily in tea, and I notice a significant reduction in inflammation. Highly recommend. Thank you dr. Berg, your message has changed my life!

    • D Class B on December 31, 2022 at 3:05 pm

      @YASH AR I had a stage 3 sarcoma tumour removed surgically. No chemo, or radiation was indicated by the oncology team.

    • kyle fer on January 1, 2023 at 4:48 am

      Look up Paul Stamets and what he said about turkey tail mushrooms anti-cancer benefits, pretty good stuff.

    • J A on January 1, 2023 at 12:13 pm

      I’ve started learning about grounding, as well. Maybe that could help you with inflammation which can result in cancer. Just saying…

    • shks20 on January 2, 2023 at 3:52 am

      @D Class B which brands. Thanks.

    • Susanne Dengler on January 2, 2023 at 11:51 am

      May I ask how old are you?

  6. Casey Jean on December 30, 2022 at 3:55 pm

    I am really struggling with staying on keto I lost 25 pounds a few years ago but gained it all back and a few more after going thru menopause. I know it is a mental thing but I also feel like I need biscuits or crackers in the morning for my stomach with my medicine I feel slightly nauseous and I keep blowing it… I want to do better!

    • Kathy Jaguar on December 31, 2022 at 6:14 am

      You may not be able to do full keto dealing with menopause. Be gentle with yourself, just focus on the intermittent fasting, but don’t push yourself too hard. Don’t do it every day. Do low carb but don’t push yourself to do an all or nothing-it could trigger a stress reaction and make menopause more difficult. I am a big fan of keto and intermittent fasting, but just sharing what I’ve learned.

    • doris jean on January 1, 2023 at 1:37 pm

      Maybe drop more carbs and go full carnivore?

    • C B on January 2, 2023 at 4:26 pm

      Make your own keto “crackers or biscuits”. Dr. Berg has a recipe for cheddar biscuits that’s awesome! Find alternatives and you’ll stick with it. 💪

  7. Julie Elliott on December 30, 2022 at 4:19 pm

    Great video! Thanks Doc! Happy New Year!

  8. boom boom on December 30, 2022 at 5:01 pm

    dr berg can you please make recipes for salad dressings and is there a good type of vegetable oil that isn’t bad for you

    • Jamin G on December 30, 2022 at 6:59 pm

      Any Cold pressed oil is good for you. So called vegetable oils come from heating and extracting processes……sometimes even involves extraction by chemical solvents. Yes sure they gave name Vegetable Oil to make people feel good.

    • Donna Leveron on December 31, 2022 at 5:09 am

      Olive oil, avocado oil.

    • Paula Green on December 31, 2022 at 6:09 am

      I use coconut, olive oil, and avocado oil

    • Kathy Jaguar on December 31, 2022 at 6:17 am

      Get a high quality olive oil and mix in a bit of balsamic or red wine vinegar and herbs and salt. You could also blend in some yogurt or kefir for a creamy dressing.

  9. Stella Krauz on December 30, 2022 at 5:32 pm

    I love mushrooms. I hunt for wild mushrooms in the forest, amazing benefits.

  10. sweetmammabyrd on December 30, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Just curious on mushrooms for people with mold and lyme illness. The FMD suggests not to take mushrooms if you have mold illness.

    • Kathy Jaguar on December 31, 2022 at 6:15 am

      Idk what mold illness is but fungus is not mold.

    • 7Suave on December 31, 2022 at 10:06 pm

      @Kathy Jaguar 🙌🏽

    • Sarahi Govea on January 1, 2023 at 4:34 am

      @Kathy Jaguar mold is a fungal growth

  11. Tim Mcspillywhop on December 30, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    You’re really going to leave out cordyceps? Definitely my favorite out of all the medicinal shrooms. I have tried them all and usually always have one or two in my rotation. Currently using a cordyceps extract and a reishi extract. Both are extremely effective.

    • Bonnie Kusch on December 30, 2022 at 11:45 pm

      What is it good for exactly?

    • Anthony on January 1, 2023 at 1:02 pm

      Cordyceps is my favourite by far…seems to be good for everything and gives you energy and heightened consciousness

    • Mr V on January 1, 2023 at 11:21 pm

      Does it help libido?

  12. Mike Trainor on December 30, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    I worked in a health store for a while before the pandemic, and starting taking a wide range of suppements. It’s often very difficult (or near impossible) to tell eactly what they’re doing until you stop taking them. Personally, I found lion’s mane to be undeniably beneficial. The level of focus I achieve while taking them is unmatched, and found myself wanting to read, or paint, or play music- anything creative. It’s the only food proven to stimulate neurogenesis, and now being considered in helping those with MS and other neurological disorders. I also noticed with cordyceps, I was able to do twice the distance in running (due to the increase of V02). Mushrooms are so powerful. They’re not cheap, but it’s worth the investment imo

    • Aaron David on December 31, 2022 at 10:46 pm

      What V Betta said/asked.

    • S T on January 1, 2023 at 4:15 am

      What brand lions mane if a supplement?

    • Sam Radwan on January 1, 2023 at 2:48 pm

      @V Betta search Malaysian company called DXN. they have wide range of mushroom supplements including lion’s mane and rishi. I have been taking their supplements for couple of months now and it made a difference.

    • Highra on January 3, 2023 at 2:47 am

      I’ve heard blueberries can stimulate neurogenesis as well

    • orion9k on January 3, 2023 at 6:03 am

      I was going to write you that you should try combine LM with Cordyceps but there you go 😁

  13. spicy bangtang sandwich on December 30, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    what this man does for humanity is absolutely insane. the amount of work he puts into his videos is insane. I love his content so much that I catch myself watching his videos in my free time and also when I’m actually supposed to be doing something else. his knowledge is huge and he can explain it to us in such a satisfying and understandable way, it’s amazing. he was just born to be a doctor. I’m so happy that I have found him, no idea where I would’ve been if I didn’t find this channel years ago. I’ve been following him and his content is NEVER disappointing. he’s so down-to-earth, humble and genuine. If he was my teacher, I would actually love school. school would be interesting and actually educational I’m so thankful for this man with my whole heart. thank you dr berg.

  14. Amie Hegeman on December 31, 2022 at 1:56 am

    Since switching to mushroom coffee, I have definitely noticed a bunch of benefits. Thanks for doing this video. I see that I don’t have Lions Mane and will add that to my stack. Thanks for all of the info, Dr. Berg!

  15. Kenji Nishida on December 31, 2022 at 11:14 am

    Yes!! Fungi are more closely related to animals than plants!! That is why vegans and vegetarians do somewhat okay on their diet😄 Ah, and I think that the algae are also more closely related to animals than plants.

  16. David W. Johnson on December 31, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    This channel has grown. I remember when there was 600K subscribers !

  17. Porcia N on January 1, 2023 at 5:06 am

    Yay! Thank you for doing this segment . I drink reishi every night and chaga every morning . Both Home brewed. If I could figure out how to brew a tasty lions main I’d do that . Thanks Dr. Berg!

  18. Dooder Buddy on January 2, 2023 at 5:32 pm

    Love the channel, thanks doc. At our home we use Stamets 7, It’s an excellent balance of 7 essential mushrooms including the ones in this video. Since we have added that to our routine, my wife has noticed major improvements with her ADHD among other things. I highly recommend adding the mushrooms to your regiment of supplements. It has done wonders for our family.

      U can get all kinds of mushrooms, psychedelics. They ship to all locations 🍄 😍

  19. Sara Brooks, Love and Laughter on January 3, 2023 at 5:59 pm

    I LOVED THIS! Thank you! Great Video! 👍👍❤
    Can you possibly do a video on Amanita Muscaria (the red mushroom with white polka-dots)? I know it’s a huge topic & also not technically for consumption. Labeled poisonous, but not actually poisonous. It has many health benefits, inside and outside the body! Even for just topical use though, it’s amazing! 🍄
