This post should be titled “Superfood of the YEAR” simply because kale is just one of those awesome vegetables. We reserve the right to sing more than once. Kale is one of those vegetables that’s best eaten soon after its been picked and that’s because it begins to significantly loose its beneficial properties.

Even more so than its cousin kale, the humble Romaine lettuce packs high levels of folic acid, a water-soluble form of Vitamin B that’s proven to boost male fertility. A study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility found supplemental folic acid to significantly increase sperm counts.

  • Hello! Anyone knows how many grams there is in 1 cup of kale? When Dr. Eric Berg refers 7 10 cups of vegetables daily, how many grams this equals? Thank you!

  • $4.19 just charge me an extra penny and throw in some nugs. I can buy two huge bags of kale at the store for $3 I think chik fil a lost their minds trying to sell this.

  • He may be intimidated by the party scene but me and my friends would give him a great time, we’ve done it for random tourists with cool back stories before

  • Gentleman Reviewbrah has given me a history lesson about Halloween during a Salad review �� Im just soaked in knowledge right now and eternally grateful

  • Hi Dr,

    like your videos. i have a question. Kale is ALA omega-3 right? but we all know from your other video that DHA and EPA omega 3 are the beneficial omega-3. so we’re not consuming kale for the omega 3 here are we. it’s still fish in the end?

  • Dude why don’t buy yourself some kale, steam some broccoli, add walnuts if your not allergic, apple cider vinegar,olive oil, fresh garlic and your set. Your body will thank you.

  • Here is the perfect kale recipe.. Hot pan, olive oil, red pepper flakes, kale… then add salt and pepper, I use pink salt and freshly ground pepper. Saute and flip with tongs till wilted. Then at the end add fresh squeezed lemon juice! Delicious!

  • I love kale smoothies. But i was reading that 1 cup of kale has 133 percent of vit A., another web site said 206 percent for vit A. So my one cup of raw kale in my smoothy is too much. The mayo clinic says a person can become ill if go over 200mg for long period of time. But was also doing cod liver oil. Which is also 150 percent of Vit A. So need be watchful of the nutrient contents consumed. Take care. I do love that kale smoothy.

  • I think kale works for some people and not for all people. It helped heal my immunity last year with other greens. I’m 2 yrs excellent immunity. But anything in moderation I think is ok.

  • I found a “hide the kale smoothie” on the internet kale, blueberries, green banana (more nutritious and less sugar than yellow bananas), pure pomegranate juice, and hemp seeds (or chia seeds if you don’t have hemp). I try to have this every day, and i feel amazing after having one.

  • Cooking kale removes the oxylates, and if you want to eat it raw, pouring some lemon juice over it, or even a dressing high in lemon juice does the same action as cooking, in terms of reducing oxylates.

  • Reviewbrah is so lovely and dresses so sharply he could honestly be mistaken for a handsome butch lesbian at first glance and I mean that as a compliment

  • Koristi spanać, umesto kelja. Ima više mg magnezijuma i kalijum nego kelj. Plus, misli da me kelj sjebao i zatvorio stomak i sad me mnogo boli stomak i bulja. Ovo pišem sa WC šolje…

  • Man I hate how much, not just misinformation, but pure bullshit exists around the term “Super Food.” The industries around pomegranates, Kale and other less palatable foods are nearly God tier genius. Because they took foods that almost no one ate and created myths about them being super and it caught on. We don’t call meat a Super Food, but it is just as nutrient rich if not even more so because everything is digested at high levels an enters your bloodstream. The vegetables that are falsely called superfoods do contain a lot of nutrients, but most of them are not transferred into your body upon digestion. This is one of the greatest food myths to spread so far and wide. Almost God level, but not quite as good as the “Got Milk” myth spread by the dairy industry.

  • Hi Dr Berg, How much Kale is ok in a day? I eat about 5-7 cups in a huge salad. Some have said that’s way too much. Am I harming myself? Is it ok to eat it raw, some have said it should be cooked. Confused!!

  • Your video is very high in value and it should reach a wider range of audiences, I tried to contribute an Arabic translation, but since there was no subtitles added to the video i couldn’t make use of the feature by just translating the given subtitles.

  • Now I am confused. Dr. Gundry do you not normally say that kale is good for you. Or is it the cruciferous vegetables that are the good ones, and what is the difference.??

  • I eat 300 grams of cooked macrobiotic kale three times a week, as a lunch. I add some chicken stock, nutmeg, pepper, salt and 50 grams of real butter, mmmm yummy, I have never felt better. Even in my brain things change, less stress, less distractions, more clear. Health results so far, no more toothache, improved vision,

  • Hi Dr. Gundry! I’ve been leaning into the Plant Paradox diet for quite some time now. I’ve been struggling with what to do about my four year old son’s calcium intake because his pediatrician says he should drink a gallon a week. It gives him the runs so I pulled him off regular milk and swiched to A2 milk. I recently started giving him a children’s calcium supplement as well. Dave briefly mentions that too much calcium is really bad. Please advise! Thanks!

  • I searched for thallium in gasoline in Google and I didn’t see a phrase saying that it is in gasoline…. Are you sure that it is?

  • yes! it is I loved kale too, thanks to your effort sharing this good thing,I did try it for morethan 2 weeks and I lost 4 kls,,thanks to you.

  • Haaaa!! So funny. When Reviewbrah takes a big ole bite of a burger or pizza, he has no problem chewing it down in speedy fashion. When he takes a teeny weeny bite of kale with a nut, it takes him an inordinate amount of time to get through it!! You, sir, need to get used to eating your vegetables! Glad to see you giving greens a shot!

  • hi to john sexy dude nice your hair from mhopper in aussie ok please do a live show soon again please john ok love love love and kiss kiss from aussie male

  • I seem why u like u think like the death u just need a more manly voice then u would fit perfectly to Samhain… Sorry for bullying but IDK I’m again violence any this shit but always wanna hit u in the face when I watch u xD

  • Tastes like stuffing one’s head into a fresh lawn clipping bag fresh, but changes radically to a most tasty green when lightly steamed. I am sold on kale.

  • I have a small blender and that kale always gets stuck in there. So i always put some oil besides water. Is it ok? i like linseed, sesame and olive oils.

  • So kale also has 5+ carbs per cup. If I have 3 or more cups as in a smoothies I’ve pretty much blown through my carbs without adding any other foods with carbs. Am I missing something here? Please advise. And thanks.

  • After having oxalate stones And enjoying rhubarb in my earlier years, I have always looked at kale with suspicion and stayed away from it! Thanks for the heads up!

  • My rabbits wont eat frozen thawed kale. Hope that isnt a sign that it isnt good once frozen… loving kale shakes. Have them for brekky or lunch every day.

  • So I am a newbie when it comes to Kale. At the grocery store, there are at least 3 if not more types of Kale. What kind of Kale do you recommend for the Kale shakes? At Trader Joe’s, there is chopped Kale that is stiff (and says “for cooking”) and then there is baby Kale for salads and another couple of choices in between. I’ve seen posts on IG by people saying “dinosaur” kale is “the best”. I’ve looked for a video about the different types of Kale and what would be the most beneficial but I don’t see anything like that. Would you please reply and let me know? Thanks from CA!

  • I have been doing Keto for months and couldnt warm up to kale. Found Dr Berg’s kale smoothie recipe-game changer. It is very refreshing! ����❤

  • Little did we know at the time.. The super food side god’s were but the Vanir side of the food deities. They were in service to the higher food god’s, the Aesir. And of all the Aesir one stood above them all. His name should only be mentioned in hush tones at the break of dawn.. Reviewbrah.

  • When I got tired of kale smoothies i just boil it (yes I know it reduces the nutrient content) but what’s nice is you can add some nutritional yeast and a tablespoon of butter and it makes a delicious broth. Oh and while it’s boiling add a smashed garlic clove to compound this super food broth with a nice antioxidant.

  • Thank you for persevering through this terrifying experience to bring us this insightful review. But in all seriousness, I’m vegetarian and it’s actually such a burden trying to find a good meatless fast food option, this is my next go to!

  • If you’re interested, check out my Teespring Store for new merch at there are a few new mugs check it out! Also consider supporting the Channel and Radio Show on Patreon at

  • 1) Can the steam be eaten… or just the leaves…?….tks!

    2) Also, is our digestive system able to digest the Kale fibre? Should i just drink the juice without the fibre OR with the fibre?

    3) When this the best time to drink Kale juice? Can I drink it a) on an empty stomach, b) after a meal (eg: an hour later)? c) before i go to sleep.. d) even in the middle of the night in between going to the washroom.

    Sorry i may sounds silly asking all these questions, but i just hope to get the correct method using Kale to remove my blood sugar level desperately.

    Thanks.. anyone are welcome to reply me. i be most appreciative.

    (For those who do not like my questions, pls just ignore and not necessary for you to comments anything bad. just ignore me and move on with your life. Thank so much!).

  • What about kale and insulin response? I intermittent fast and ide like to drink right in the AM… But I’m still in my fasting window at the time…

  • May I ask you a tricky question? Is Oxalate and Oxalacetete the same? The reason why I am asking, is because I red an interesting article about Glutamat clearing and Oxalacetate…. Quote:
    “Dysregulation of glutamate homeostasis in the interstitial fluid of the brain is strongly implicated in causing synaptic dysfunction in many neurological and psychiatric illnesses. In the case of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), amyloid β (Aβ)-mediated disruption of synaptic plasticity and memory can be alleviated by interventions that directly remove glutamate or block certain glutamate receptors. An alternative strategy is to facilitate the removal of excess glutamate from the nervous system by activating peripheral glutamate clearance systems. One such blood-based system, glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT), is activated by oxaloacetate, which acts as a co-substrate……”
    Now, I have an oxalate intolerance, but would really like to try the oxalacetat as a suplement (for many reasons). But I am not sure if this is safe with oxalate intolerance… Thank you or your advise… greetings from Zurich-Switzerland

  • dr Mark Hyman, author of “Blood sugar solution cookbook” recommends his raw kale salad as a “detox diet recipe”

  • Is there a way to not make it so hard to chew when made as a salad? The salad from Cheesecake Factory is soft and not hard to chew. I tried lemon but I’m wondering if I need to let it sit for awhile.. TIA

  • The easiest veg to grow. Grows all year long. Going out to pic some for a shake now. A 2 x 2 patch will keep you supplied with organic kale all year, even winter.

  • Dr Berg,
    the other day I decided I was gonna get healthy, so I ate a huge spinach/kale salad. Several hours later I felt lightheaded and really sweaty/clammy!!!
    Is that normal? is that a detox effect??

  • @ Dr. Berg, thanks for all the knowledge that you share with us.
    You are such a blessing for us. God bless you always.
    Could you please tell if Kale soup is also equally good. Actually my mum like it more as soup that raw.

  • Can I feed my baby kale, he is one year old, and if I can what is the best way to give it to him, cook or raw? Thank you for your amazing videos.��

  • This is a great interview! Amusing as well as essentially informative. BTY, it’s not just oxalic acid [oxalate] that’s such a potent chelator of calcium [and other 2+ cations], but phytic acid [phytate] too. Heat from cooking will neutralize both. As an aside, purslane, although super nutritious, is the highest of all plants in oxalates. 

    Plants with high amounts of oxalic and phytic acids are called goitrogens. These are mostly in the Brassica family of sulfur-containing plants. If you go to David Wolf’s Longevity Conference—just as one example—you’ll see lots of vegan woman with nodules or obvious goiter—with no idea why.

  • I’m grateful that I haven’t fell in that smoothie trap. I eat keto with egg and Olive oil, olives, walnuts, roman salad as my first meal at lunch time. No cravings anymore ����
