    #150 - Your Gut Microbiome, Cultured: Bringing Kombucha to the Forefront · Vanessa Dew

    To follow your "gut", it's essential to have a healthy gut in the first place. Most still shudder at the thought of bacteria flowing around in their body, but probiotics / prebiotics play a hugely important role in the health of your microbiome.
    Kombucha is a fairly recent and accessible beverage that introduces healthy bacteria into your diet.
    In this episode, we welcome Vanessa Dew, the co-founder of Health-Ade Kombucha.
    Geoff & Vanessa discuss the following and much more:
    How is kombucha brewed and why exactly is it healthy Building the fast-growing kombucha brand from scratch The future of kombucha and why the category is growing so quickly...could it catch up to the likes of "big soda"?

    #149 - Gwyneth Paltrow Tries "Fasting Mimicking" Diet & Lowers Her Biological Age

    On an episode of the Netflix show "Goop Lab", Gwyneth Paltrow followed the 'fast mimicking diet' for five days.
    According to the experiment featured in the episode, she lowered her biological age by 1.7 years.
    Essentially a form of extreme calorie restriction, can a fast mimicking diet actually mimic...a true intermittent fast? Geoffrey Woo & Dr. Latt Mansor dive into a fun conversation and discuss the proposed science behind it.

    #148 - An Electrifying Neuroplasticity Biohack: Exploring Brain Stimulation · Dr. Hayley Teasdale

    #148 - An Electrifying Neuroplasticity Biohack: Exploring Brain Stimulation · Dr. Hayley Teasdale

    Dr. Hayley Teasdale is the new Lead Scientist over at Halo Neuroscience. Halo developed a headset (Halo Sport 2) that applies a small electric current (a method specifically known as transcranial direct current stimulation) to the part of the brain that controls movement, activating neurons so they fire more often when you train. The more neurons fire, together, the faster pathways are built in your brain.
    Prior to joining Halo, Dr. Teasdale came from a research background focused on non-invasive brain stimulation and motor control in Parkinson's Disease, with a particular angle on training proprioception and balance in order to prevent falls.
    In this episode, Geoff and Dr. Teasdale discuss...
    The importance of proprioception, which is the sense of self-movement and body position. It is sometimes described as the "sixth sense". As modern society evolved, have humans (at some level) lost their ability to truly tap into this sense? How does brain stimulation work mechanistically? What literature supports positive outcomes using transcranial direct stimulation? What are the pros and cons of TDCS, along with other forms of brain stimulation? The ever-evolving brain and how neuroplasticity evolves as we age, train, and learn. Save $75 off Halo Sport 2 by following this link: gethalosport.com/hvmn or use code "HVMN2020" at checkout.

    #147 - Forging a Fat-Fueled Family: Countering Culture with Nutrition & Education · Danny Vega, M.S.

    At this point, we've heard of many adults following the ketogenic diet to great success, but what about developing children?
    When Danny Vega, an active athlete who received his M.S. in Human Performance from University of Florida, discovered the ketogenic diet in 2016...he never looked back. With so many years of pushing and stressing his body, experiencing the benefits of reduced inflammation, improved mental clarity, and overall well-being, Danny knew then that low-carb nutrition was a key pillar for his health.
    His ketogenic lifestyle also made an influence on his family, including his young children. They all follow the keto diet, genuinely love it, and report similar yet varying benefits that help each member prosper in their own way. Maura Vega (@fatfueledmom), suffered from eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and postpartum depression...keto corrected all of that. Dean, the youngest, has had astounding improvements in his eczema and mood. Desmond, the eldest, felt an immediate increase in energy and improvement in his allergies and asthma.
    In this episode, Geoff and Danny have a balanced chat about ketogenic nutrition, fitness & muscle-building, philosophy, public education, and much more.
