    Do you have a ranking of healthy foods per serving? This would be most helpful. Even more helpful to me than per calorie or by weight.

    Why did pecans, but not walnuts, make the ‘antioxidants per serving’ list? Do walnuts have that much less mass/volume compared to pecans? How do the two compare on omega-3/6 ?

    Might this not be a case where a supplement is beneficial? Swansonvitamins sells 100 ground clove 450mg capsules for $6.49. I’m not sure how much a “pinch” is, referring to a later video, but I assume it is less than 450mg.

      Well, I’ve been adding about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of ground cloves to my dark berry mixtures 3 or 4 times a week, along with my oats…takes some getting used to, for sure, but it is doable, just saying!

    capacity have no relevance to the effects of specific bioactive compounds, including polyphenols on human health.
