SuperFood or SuperFad is Dr. Gundry's new YouTube series where he dives into the wild world of food and diet trends to determine the truth on popular foods. On today’s episode, I’m here to talk about one of my favorite resistant starches — Sweet potatoes
They’re incredibly rich in vitamins A and C, plus they’ve got a good portion of your daily b-vitamins. And the darker sweet potatoes, like the rich orange ones, and those fantastic Japanese purple ones, are just LOADED in healthy-promoting polyphenols.

      I heard you say – don’t drink the water. Someone said that sugar is sugar so no coconut sugar. MCT oil? Butter flavor coconut oil…im allergic to dairy. Coconut milk (better than almond right?) When is enough enough?

    • longyang888 says:

      Organ Meats, like Liver, Heart, etc , are they Superfood?

    • Gundry MD says:

      We’ll consider covering this for a future video. Thank you!

    • Andy Sichley says:

      @Gundry MD what does Dr gundry think of resistant maltodextrin? It sounds like it’s a good thing but need to make sure that it’s starting to get very popular right now

    • Diane Pimpinella says:

      Thank you Dr Gundry for all you do for us !! What about Edamame? Hazelnuts? and Cheese? I have Leaky Gut and overgrowth of yeast in my Gut. Have a difficult time deciding what to eat each night which mainly consist of a large salad and a vegetable and some Grass Fed Beef (organic – so its labeled as ) and Wild Fish

  • Stephen Perry says:

    Fascinating info. Who’d have thought that
    Cooking > Cooling > Reheating
    Sweet potatoes increases their health giving properties?

  • Stephen Perry says:

    As a forager in UK, I’m curious to know the ratings of blackberry, nettle and dock leaf on the nutrition scale.

  • Ren Pilak says:

    Wow!! Thank you for this info! I love sweet potato and now I can have it again. Cool, chill, recook – got it! I can think of a few recipes with it!

  • Ded Ede says:

    This is great news. I was worried all the sweet and purple potatoes growing in my front yard would be a problem for my health. I prefer sweet potatoes and I know they are great source of carbs that gives us energy longer than white potatoes carbs.

  • Nirvacho Ritchy says:

    Dr Grundy, few weeks ago I purchased my first pressure cooker, ( I live in North Africa, they cost a fortune here ) and I started using it cooking the food that I crave so much , and that is beans or chickpeas.. and you’re absolutely right that cooking theses legumes after soaking them overnight, in a pressure cooker on low fire for about an hour make them super buttery in texture and taste absolutely great as you advised us before. And feel them just healthier this way. Thank you for your teaching and love that is making a difference for all who listen to you. 🙏

  • Fatima Fuentes says:

    Thanks for all the great information you provide, it has definitely transformed my life. Would you talked about plantains? I seem to get an allergic reaction to them.

  • Tyrone Joihnson says:

    Dr. Gundry makes our lives better! Thank you, sir!

  • Roberta Foran says:

    Blood oranges! They are the only thing that quickly heals my son’s chronic canker sores. I have read a few articles on possible medicines being made with blood oranges. I would love to hear your thoughts on this super food and what makes them different from other oranges.

  • Heather Jewell says:

    I love these superfood or superfad segments! They are quick – little time requried, but the key information!
    I would love if people contributed their recipies for double-baked sweet potato fries! I love them with mustard!
    Also, what about the carribean sweet potatoes – the ones that look with the purple Japanese ones?

  • C.S. Unger says:

    Interesting. For the longest time now I’ve been baking a bunch of them on Sunday night and throwing them in the fridge for a quick bake during the week. Didn’t know I was getting the most out of them by doing that.

  • Krystal Kelley says:

    I love this. As someone from a family with deep southern roots, I grew up on sweet potatoes. I always have them around.

  • Alabanza Music says:

    But they’re sweet! I use sweet potato instead of bread for my baby but so often mix it with avocado or cruciferous veggies or salmon and drizzle with olive oil to take some of that sweetness away. It is great for breakfast, lunch or even dinner!

  • Stefan van der Spuy says:

    I am essentially on a HFLC eating plan, not keto (too restrictive). So a try and reduce my sugar intake as far as possible. It would be useful if you could do a video on resistant starches. I take very little starches in general, because of the sugar content.

  • Angela Loving says:

    They are so Awesome healthy and beneficial for your body I grew up eating them as a child as far as I can remember love ❤️ them with or without the skin I prefer baking mines they are soooo delicious 😋

  • beastywild says:

    I boil my sweet potatoes first to make them soft, then I oven cook them with extra virgin olive oil and they come out looking and tasting like fries. Absolutely beautiful

  • Dan F says:

    Dr Gundry I follow your advise fair;y closely. I really appreciate individuals that communicate intelligently especially regarding your science based diet advise. I discovered you years ago when I was trying to address my serious hypertension problem, I was not over weight. I just want to thank you for enabling me to resolve that serious problem.

    • Gundry MD says:

      We are so happy to hear the Dr. Gundry’s philosophy has helped you on your health journey, Dan! Thank you so much for sharing your story with us. 🙏
