    Guest Interview #25: Metformin: The Basics with Joe Jeffery

    Joe Jeffery makes a most welcomed return to The Muscle Mentors Podcast to run through the basic mechanisms and considerations around Metformin.

    Metformin use is a highly discussed topic in the bodybuilding and even health industries. Joe does a phenomenal job at breaking all the relevant information down for us here in a concise and easy to understand manner.

    We also delve into some comparisons to Berberine, a supplement that Metformin is often compared to, and highlight some key differences between the two.

HarrietButtigieg ,

Epic content!

I’d have given them a 5* review anyway based on genuine fitness & educational content but the Foodcast episode has been a total laugh. I’ve not belly-laughed so much in weeks and for lighthearted relief that’ll have you shouting out loud at your phone, this is the one.

Charlieee123654123654 ,

Very Informative.

Highly recommend this podcast for anybody interested in the science behind hypertrophy and exercise mechanics. Also a very entertaining podcast which is rare for long podcasts.

the prawn from ash ,
