    Bile-binding beets, baby!

  • Reply Stephen Starling May 24, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    Would we still get a pretty good bile bind benefit from these vegetables even if not steamed? I just don’t steam much at all. Raw, sautéed, boiled, roasted, but not steamed.

    What is this man talking about? We Need bile and that's why our bodies produce bile.

  • Reply StephyPlantbased May 24, 2019 at 1:01 pm

    Gallbladder is releasing bile all the time. 30-50ml fits into the gallbladder but the liver produces 800-1000ml bile every 24 hours. How many beets and how often u gonna eat them? 24/7? ???

    I am eating beets this morning as I am watching this. And my okra plants are 8 inches tall.

    beets r very high in protein for a plant
    10.8% of their macronutrient make-up iirc according to chronometer
    nice to have them be good at other things too

    How about a primer on bile? Still don't understand why "binding" bile is important. My doctor has told me to take bile salts. for fat absorption. Was under the impression that bile was a good thing. MOre confused than ever? A 'Bile for Dummies,' please.

  • Reply Shane Lewis May 24, 2019 at 2:23 pm

    I did a ton of research, and I can’t for the life of me figure out why we would want to reduce bile, especially on a plant based diet which is already low in fat. But we should already be eating most of these vegetables daily anyway, so… I don’t guess it really matters?

    Why was SPINACH not on this list?

  • Reply White Kita May 24, 2019 at 3:14 pm

    fantastic I love all of those veggies except for eggplant

  • Reply Cin May 24, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    Why would recycling bile acids be harmful? We evolved to do that…where is the evidence that bile acid recycling actually hurts us? If you get rid of them that is just gonna trigger new synthesis isnt it?

  • Reply Clifford Starks May 24, 2019 at 3:44 pm

    Yes, beets are an amazing food to have!?

  • Reply Quinoa Boy May 24, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    I ALWAYS wondered why I‘m feeling so much better the day after eating beets or blended leafy greens. Now I do. Lol.
    Flax and applesauce seem to have the same effect on that.

  • Reply Jens May 24, 2019 at 3:56 pm

    Beets have a high Oxalate Content. Is this a Problem when you eat them daily ?

  • Reply Iron Vegan May 24, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    Thanks for the information Michael. I used to have higher bile readings on my blood tests years ago when I was still eating animals and animal products. This is good to know that all these veggies make a difference.

    Damn it I hate beets! ??

    Okra and eggplants are fruits, not vegetables:D

    So we're supposed to boil beets? Never had that. Is it good?

  • Reply Bethesda Boy May 25, 2019 at 4:52 am

    Nice. I'm a big fan of kale and beats, but only raw kale. Best salad green imo.

  • Reply Lloyd Christmas May 25, 2019 at 6:50 am

    Love my kale. Need more beets.

    Could you please make a video about baking powder ?? and what do you think about yeast?

  • Reply Julia H May 25, 2019 at 11:53 pm

    Since we water saute in WFPB cooking, would that be the equivalent of steaming you think?

  • Reply Eugene Riebeek May 26, 2019 at 11:28 am

    How much did BIG Beet pay for this outcome ?

  • Reply Citizenthirteen May 26, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    If you are eating plant based your body doesn't need to produce a lot of bile anyways. Keep your fats down and your animal corpse fats to zero.

    John McDougall claims Hollywood Jeff is his best friend and a master communicator.  Before Jeffery met John he focused on commercial advertising creations selling everything from Jello Pudding Pops, beer to hamburgers. The power of persuasion is his forte. The product or concept being hustled made no difference, Hollywood Jeff could sell it to the public.  Today this tag team's YouTube antics are focused on destroying medical doctors who don't support McDougall's practice of advising health seekers to include depleted white rice as a food staple. A long-standing doctrine of McDougalls. In fact acceptance of his book, "The Starch Solution" is dependant upon the public eating nutrient-depleted white rice.  One is an occasionally inebriated doctor and one an active YouTube manipulator is deeply entrenched with numerous vegan groups he's created web sites for. Petty politic and growing influence have empowered Hollywood Jeff and now the tail wags the dog.  Neither are lawyers. Neither are restricted by the Bar Association to be ethical or even honest.  Jeffery threatens and intimidates young people who resist his claim by filing lawsuits. To date, about a hundred have been sued by Jeffery's count.  s

    It is worth mentioning that the interpretation of the data is based on dry matter (DM) and total dietary fibre. So, beets for example, have the lowest %DM relative to total dietary fibre. In reality, we eat beets that have not been dried, which may be cooked with additional water. So the mass of the beat you consume is greater (relative to DM), reducing the total %DM you'd actually consume. If the results were compared based on bile binding per g of sample, it may provide a more real world application for understanding the best food for bile binding ability (which would probably be okra or eggplant relative to higher %DM).
