    Ahhhhhh "until you…PUT IT TO THE TEST" ((Dramatic Music))

  3. ApoE-ε2/ε3 says:

    So, if your vegan, have lower then normal BP, in excellent overall health, and a slow metabolizer, there should be no problem with coffee. On the other hand, if you eat the average american diet, are over weight and on BP meds., you should probably quit or limit your coffee intake to one cup a day.

    I wasn't an owner of your two books sir, untiiiiiill noooow…you are a gift to the world, Thank you so much for this labor of looooove

    Don’t believe anything until( put it to test). ☺️☺️☺️

  6. Chepa W. says:

    Very interesting, Dr. Greger! Never heard about coffee metabolizing rate before. My question is if I practice drinking coffee more and longer, would my coffee metabolism improve? Thanks lots!

  7. Glenn Sandberg says:

    veganism is a scam

  8. Nicola Grogan says:

    How do you know if you're a fast or a slow?

  9. Abhay Bhatt says:

    0:51 – ….PUT IT TO THE TEST..

  10. Abhay Bhatt says:

    2:42 – I am one of those individuals and just medium amount of caffeine does it for me..LOL!
    Bdw, can you please tell me that in that case, I belong to rapid metabolizers, slow ones, or a different category entirely???

  11. Vasiliki Dalla says:

    How do we know which type of coffee metabolizers we are?

  12. Simon Breidert says:

    Dear Michael, I would like to hear your opinion in this coffee study recently published:

  13. Dr Grey says:

    I am a high metopolizher
    and can drink coffee at midnight with no effect
    1 coffee a day for me

  14. Mark Currie says:

    What about decaf?

  15. Moncef Ar says:

    If getting rid of caffeine is what unmasks the healthy phytonutrients in coffee, then wouldn't decaffeinated coffee be healthy for everyone?

  16. Nadia Tamer says:

    “Until you put it to the test” you’re awesome Dr. Greger!

  17. Sam says:

    Just drink decaf!

  18. Dan Cagle says:

    I was about to ditch my cup of coffee & switch for green tea and the wonderful benefits it brings.  Now, I will just do both.

  19. Hike Ranger says:

    This is just bullshit useful content for 99.9% of viewers…how the F are we suppose to do anything ACTIONABLE based on this. Time to DUMP THIS CHANNEL. Get back to information that is useful and ACTIONABLE…In fact DUMP THIS CHANNEL. You have a bunch of folks like berg and axe saying eat animal and fat then a bunch esselstyn gregor McDougall saying eat animal and you die. All of you are snake oil salesman making money off what you profess…you don't know

  20. InvisiMan says:

    So what about decaffeinated coffee? Gets rid of the problem-causing caffeine in "slow metabolizers" and offers the benefits of the rest of the bean, right?

  21. Banana Man says:

    Gave up caffeine and have never felt better. One of the best things I've ever done.

  22. Smac says:

    As a man I need my boob-size reduced tho…. XD

  23. Cathy Lynn Pietranton says:

    I have one cup of coffee in the morning with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

  24. Scuba Diva says:

    The "coffee achievers" commercials of the 80s really were true, then!

  25. Alec Gargett says:

    Lol there are no health benefits when compared to other sources of anti-oxidants. Caffeine is an addictive performance enhancing drug.

  26. agaragar21 says:

    Some stimulants like caffeine and amphetamines can cause sleepiness in people with ADHD, as their brain responds differently to these chemicals
    ….thats how amphetamines mitigate some of the symptoms of adhd, and cause normalization of the functions of the Prefrontal Cortex

  27. darb sevens says:

    coffee shmoffee, i do better when i dont do caffeine, especially coffee. and the cost is certainly not worth it-

  28. RipeApple says:

    I've never handeled coffee well. But how many people are slow metabolizers?

  29. Jo Drew says:

    Luv me that cup-a-joe, even on the weekends. I tend to stick with one cup however.

  30. Raven daKnitta says:

    I drink coffee before sleeping because it helps me sleep.

  31. It is a Beautiful World says:

    How do you know if you are a slow or fast coffee metaboliser ? Is it how long the effect of coffee lasts ?

  32. Yakout Esmat says:

    This one is reaaaaly confusing and with no apparent conclusion.

  33. SEGISBORN says:

    Coffee makes me sleepy

  34. Doug Vegan Paradise Builder says:

    My nose and tongue say NO coffee! Never drank that stuff.

  35. Lolly B says:

    I will have a strong coffee and it will literally feel like I've taken a sleeping pill,and I'm a fast metabolizer

  36. Justin D'shaw says:

    Turmeric curcumin is a known xanthine oxidase inhibitor. Probably not a good idea to take it with coffee.

  37. ShaneDeeZee says:

    Any decaf studies?

  38. Juan Cruz V says:

    Podrías hablar de la Malta, o Café de Cebada? Gracias

  39. Celina K says:

    1:09 2 cups of coffee after 3 weeks, should work against parkinson
    (200 mg caffeine)
    2:50 hank green might be one of them
    4:47 So decaff for people who can't get thick – thin

  40. Yhonatan Shemesh says:

    Great video! What about decaf? I've got a feeling that's coming …

  41. Ludovico Sforza says:

    terrible anxiety, no thanks!

  42. Sulinya says:

    Hi Dr. Greger, I've been looking for information on zinc bioavailability from chlorella. I am not able to find a consistent or reputable source to find out the zinc content or bioavailability. Do you have any info on this? Thanks!

  43. purple tea says:

    I wish Dr Greger changes his way of talking or voice. It is getting in the way with the content. I really love to watch and listen to him speak but he talks like he is in his bed (if you know what i mean). Too much unnecessary sounds, long pauses, ugh.. The message in the video would have been very valuable, but his voice is so theatrical or "operatic". Really is very disturbing.

  44. Jill Laboy says:

    I'm a slow caffeine metabolizer 😭

  45. C J says:

    Very good research on this topic!
    Love the smell of the coffee and use to drink it. When stopped, my whole back (around the spine, from the neck, as if the nerves were inflamed…especially low back area) was in agony! Pain , throbbing …insane. Took small cup of coffee, gone. Every time going off the thing same happened. Now I drink black tea. Stopped, same happened! What is the problem , have no idea. Always lasts 3 days before pain/inflammation starts. If going trough the whole thing, takes about 9 days before I am clear of it all. But it is agonizing!

    Caffeine must be a huge poison to our bodies if used daily. And I still do…

  46. flyshacker says:

    Great! Except you didn’t explain how to find out if you have a fast metabolism or a slow metabolism with regards to caffeine!!

  47. The Ancients Ancients says:

    I agree with Dr Birkmayer coffee is roasted and burned and it has not as much benefits as tea like green tea and those intolerant to coffee caffeine can often tolerate green tea caffeine as green tea reduces stress ✌

  48. Tony Olson says:

    Why are you getting so fat? Durianrider says your getting fat!

    Provably the excess carbs. Go Keto!

  49. Alignmented1 says:

    But coffee does promote inflammation. 5 days without coffee and my hand arthritis subsided to barely noticeable and I felt my hand lighter and more flexible, once I restarted taking it, only after a couple of hours, the pain returned. Talking about nespresso black coffee with a bit of date syrup. Black-currant-seed-oil seemed to help ease the pain. I'm 46.

  50. Ben Jones says:

    Wouldn't people who can metabolise coffee faster, just have a higher metabolism, meaning they don't have fat clogged mitochondria, meaning they are likely eating a diet low in animal products, which is the thing that is actually protective? Theobromine and Caffeine are designed to keep animals from eating plants. They also allow the body to chew into ADP stores after ATP has run out, meaning it has a long term negative effect?

  51. Johny Relax says:

    OK now i just have to find out wich type am i 🙂 thank you good doctor!

  52. Anna de Juana Persson says:

    how do you find out if you are a fast or slow metabolizer?

  53. JustOneAsbesto says:

    Yeah, caffeine makes me need naps if I drink too much.

  54. Lalo Lacinato says:

    If I have just an 8 oz of coffee a day I feel like my chest tightens up, I get chest pains and high blood pressure and panic attacks and sweating. I get palpitations and tachycardia as well. I have gone to the ER about 3 times.

  55. Turtlefoot69 says:

    Cacao, Yerba Mate, Matcha are far better Alternatives.

  56. infinit sky says:

    Coffee ended my marriage.

  57. The Gary Fong Channel says:

    Cann…. you…. (mmmmm) talk like a — a—- a—- Normal HUUUUUUMAN being? I like the connnnnnntent, but the wayyyyyy you TALK prevents me frommmmmmmm(?) watching your ummmmmmm anymore…… uh…… VIDEOS.

  58. Jennifer Stokes says:

    Reduced prostate cancer — especially among the women 😅

  59. Jason Missole says:

    generally coffee is bad for you; there is no benefit derived from coffee which cannot be obtained from other less harmful substances.

  60. Phaas says:

    your speech is so incredibly fucked up. you really do sound like a malnourished vegan quack at the end of his life at 45yo.

  61. heymisterderp says:

    Longtime subscriber to the Godzilla of Veganism, Dr. Greger. Just had some sauteed (organic) eggs for breakfast though, and I feel amazing. This is the energy I feel as though I would like to have. Just telling the truth of my own anecdote; not telling anyone else what to eat. But for myself, eggs just skyrocketed to become the #1 contender for adding a new thing to my diet.

  62. heymisterderp says:

    Sunday Challenge Question: How does cholesterol cause cardiovascular disease?

    Don't give me a line about LDL. LDL is not cholesterol. HDL is not cholesterol. Put down that kool aid already. Focus. Learn what cholesterol actually is and learn what the purposes of cholesterol actually are. Once the homework is done….

    Explain to me, dear veganlings, HOW does cholesterol cause heart disease? Causal
    mechanism, please. I contend you are sentencing cholesterol to prison due to guilt by association.

  63. D'Anna C says:

    Coffee = one of the most HIGHLY sprayed crops, full of insect infestations, chemicals exported to 3rd world countries for thier usage, molds, etc. NOT to mention destruction of natural environments to grow such a highly profitable crop to sustain the masses' RAGING ADDICTIONS to caffeine.🍼
    It is IMPOSSIBLE to create absolute sterile environments to roast and process coffee, this isn't done in a lab.
    Follow organic, fair trade, innocent growing (Sumatra, etc.) practices or better yet, drink WATER the way nature intended YOU to be optimally healthy!
    Dr. Greger, why don't you address THAT ISSUE and promote saving the planet as opposed to the silly little benefits NOT outweighing the solid evidence of rainforest destruction. I love Greger, but there's nothing good about a liquid that creates addiction.

  64. Boss J says:

    how about coffee alternatives like chicory root or barley, or a medley of grains? how beneficial?

  65. Derek Sevcik says:

    even tho I have a very fast metabolism, I'll just stick with caffeine free tea 🙂

  66. D Taylor says:

    So does cutting out caffeine increase time to “finishing”? Asking for a friend…

  67. StarFlower99654 says:

    Good thing, I really dislike coffee and its flavor.

  68. SuperAtheist says:

    Drink 30oz of black coffee and then take a nap.
    If you're able to lay there and relax, you're a fast metabolizer of caffeine.

  69. dolicol says:

    What If you induce the expression of cytochrome P450 by drinking more alcohol? Could this transform a slow metabolizer to a fast one?

  70. AZBlueVeg says:

    Well that was clear as mud! lol

  71. sabrielle lunin says:

    So….. decaffeinated

  72. Gregory King says:

    Coffee is a great pre workout

  73. funny cyclist says:

    Coffee was also found to be a booster for autophagy , and that referrs to both, with and without caffeine… I ususally drink without, only ocasonally with, to respond better to the positive effects

  74. paulaaquino says:

    I'm the kind of person who needs that first mug of coffee in the morning in order to get going… if I don't have it, I get headaches…

  75. Jakob W says:

    Does DECAFFEINATED also provide protective benefits?

  76. Eddy Basch says:

    So how could we know if we are a fast or slow metabolizer of caffeine?

  77. The Vegan Merman says:

    Dr.Greger could you search for studies on Caffeine’s effects on the Prostate? My father has prostatitis and he definitely drank a lot of caffeine from energy drinks. I drink a lot of caffeine as well from coffee and tea and energy drinks. But I don’t know if my ADHD affects my caffeine metabolism and maybe that’s something else you can also search for. Please help!

  78. hector leyva says:

    I will drink coffee till the day I die!

  79. USS Spirit says:

    I know such a rare individual… Give em espresso, and off to bed they go. Crazy.

  80. David Müller says:

    Long story short:
    Slow metabolism? Dont drink coffe
    Fast metabolism? Drinking coffe gives some benefits

  81. Letha Hadady says:

    Very confusing; how do we know if we metabolize coffee quickly or slowly? Do "fast metabolizers" of coffee have fast metabolism in general? are thinner, more active? There is no attempt made in the studies to observe the connection between coffee effects and adrenal energy or other general health, for example why some people become sleepy when drinking coffee. Also there is caffeine in dark chocolate; does it have the same effects as caffeine in coffee?

  82. Luiggi Luiggi says:

    put it to the test!

  83. Deonis says:

    I look at my coworkers who drink coffee and most of them stressed and depressed all the time. And what about gallbladder contraction effects of coffee?

  84. kata0812 says:

    How could I know if I am a slow caffeine metabolizer or fast caffeine metabolizer?

  85. Ign0bilium says:

    If I ever get a daughter she would never be allowed to drink coffee!

  86. Dennis Nowland says:

    Not too healthy if it makes you feel anxious and paranoid.

  87. Lewis Moore says:

    So Decaf?

  88. Harry says:

    Seems like Decaf Coffee has mostly benefits without much downside!!

  89. Eazy_Lifeb TV says:

    Ginger/green tea, tomatoes and mushrooms keep me healthy.

  90. P S says:

    What about the amyloids? Very unhealthy.

  91. chris howard says:

    great video, this one slipped under my radar! if you've done a video on cross-reactive proteins send me a link. for example i read that people who are yeast intolerant, also tend to be dairy intolerant gluten intolerant and caffeine sensitive. that was years ago though so i'm afraid i cant point you to any studies specifically as my memory doesn't serve me that well! but i do remember the general jist was that the proteins look the same structurally so somebody who is intolerant to one of them has their body attack it in a case of mistaken identity.

  92. Phillip Latifundist says:

    So ?

  93. Get Funding Now! says:

    Teddy Roosevelt used to drink a gallon of coffee a day!

  94. Swimbait1 says:

    I absolutely love coffee but it’s not for me. It’s as if I’m allergic to the caffeine. A half cup and my hands will shake for hours and worse than that is the anxiety! I quit drinking it a year ago and although I miss it the change has definitely been good.

  95. Daniel Hughes says:

    what about decaf?

  96. Thomas Walz says:

    How does one know whether they are a fast or slow caffeine metabolizer or not?

    I'm almost 70, been drinking it since a teen… am addicted but am considering quitting, just to see what happens.

  97. Kenn Peters says:

    Good video. Here is an interesting article on the health benefits of coffee, and ow it affects your health. Hope it helps you.

  98. EWKification says:

    And how do you know if you are a fast or slow metabolizer?

  99. Love,Peace, Happy says:

    Study Göteburg, Sweden University Prof. Rickard Landberg shows that ONLY Filter coffee(drip coffee) the rislk of Diabetis is less. What kind of study it is I can't find.

  100. Life&Money Matters says:

    Found out today I'm an A/A fast metabolizer from 23 and me. This is so cool to know!
