    What's REALLY Happening In Ben Greenfield's Gut? How To Unmask Your "Microbiome Mysteries" With 1 Cutting-Edge Gut Test

    What's REALLY Happening In Ben Greenfield's Gut? How To Unmask Your "Microbiome Mysteries" With 1 Cutting-Edge Gut Test

    My guest on today's show, Dr. Chidozie Ojobor, has devoted his entire career to unraveling the complexities of biological systems, particularly the gut microbiome.

    In this episode, you'll dive deep into the Vitract gut microbiome test with Dr. Chidozie and I. He'll dissect my personal Vitract results, giving you a firsthand look at what this test can reveal. You'll also explore how 16s sequencing technology identifies the diverse bacteria living in your gut, what the test can tell you about your gut diversity, the balance between beneficial and harmful bacteria, the production of microbial metabolites, and signs of gut dysbiosis. Plus, you'll discover how these results can be used to create personalized recommendations for your diet, probiotics, and lifestyle changes.

    Dr. Ojobor is a scientist with over 15 years of research experience in bacterial genetics. He has a bachelor's degree in microbiology and obtained his Ph.D. in molecular genetics from the University of Toronto. Dr. Ojobor has spent a decade developing novel antimicrobial entities that target disease-causing bacteria in complex biological ecosystems such as the gut. In 2019, he won the Global Citizen Award for combating drug-resistant bacteria implicated in exacerbating cystic fibrosis. Dr. Ojobor’s previous research experience includes phage therapy, CRISPR technology, and gastroenteritis of viral origin in children.

    Today, he and his team at Vitract are transforming that research expertise into developing comprehensive and accessible gut microbiome testing for clinicians who are keen on improving the gut health of their clients. Vitract (use code BEN10 to save 10%) combines molecular microbiology, complex math, and AI to transform the gut health of Canadians and Americans.

    Their flagship 16s gut microbiome sequencing test, which I did and which Dr. Ojobor and I discuss on this show, has garnered widespread adoption and is now actively employed in numerous clinics.

    Vitract's test stands out on two crucial fronts: accessibility and actionability. With an affordable price point, customers can now seamlessly incorporate gut testing into their health regimen, facilitating retesting to gauge progress over time. The test results and detailed reports that you receive with Vitract not only illuminate the composition of the gut microbiome but, more importantly, provide actionable insights on how to modify bacteria for optimal health. Dr. Ojobor and his team's commitment to making advanced gut health insights accessible and actionable marks a significant leap forward in personalized healthcare.

    A PILL That Mimics Exercise? Ozempic Alternatives & How I Gained 11 lbs of MUSCLE: Solosode 474

    Are you curious about the shortcuts some celebrities and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are taking to shed pounds or bulk up?

    In this episode, you'll discover safe alternatives to popular but potentially dangerous weight loss drugs like Ozempic® and other GLP-1 agonists. You'll also learn about cutting-edge exercise and calorie restriction mimetics that can enhance physical performance. I'll reveal how to calculate your maximum natural muscle potential and expose the truth about undeclared drugs in some supplements.

    You'll also dive into the world of "exercise mimetics" — compounds that can mimic the effects of a workout or even simulate exercise while you're sedentary. I'll provide details on SLU-PP-332 and its potential for boosting endurance and building muscle without spending hours in the gym every day.

    Additionally, I'll introduce you to "calorie restriction mimetics" like the novel supplement Mimio. I've started experimenting with this formula and have gained 11 pounds of muscle in just 10 weeks — a relatively unheard-of achievement unless assisted by science.

    I'll also show you how to calculate your maximum natural muscular potential using the Fat-Free Mass Index. Plus, you'll get my top recommendations for the most trusted third-party testers to ensure your supplements are free of contaminants.

    So get ready, because by the end of this episode, you'll be armed with a full arsenal of science-backed tactics to enhance your physical and mental performance — without resorting to any sketchy, potentially dangerous shortcuts.
