You have questions and I answer them with information on which foods contain potassium, whether plant-based iron is the best kind, and what to do about heartburn.
Have you ever wondered if there’s a natural way to lower your high blood pressure, guard against Alzheimer's, lose weight, and feel better? Well as it turns out there is. Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM, founder of NutritionFacts.org, and author of the instant New York Times bestseller “How Not to Die” celebrates evidence-based nutrition to add years to our life and life to our years.
Trying to stay healthy can seem like a full-time job sometimes. Especially during a pandemic. But, I’m here to make that goal a little easier. Welcome to the NutritionFacts.org podcast, I’m your host Dr. Michael Greger.
Today, I make my step quota (walking the walk on my treadmill of course) and improve your health simultaneously. I’ll answer a whole host of questions–including what food contains potassium, is plant-based iron the only kind that is absorbed by the human body, and what to do about heartburn and a plant-based diet. Enjoy!
