    Dr Brooke Show #405 What Women Need To Know About Collagen

    Dr Brooke Show #405 What Women Need To Know About Collagen

     
    For more info on how I can help you, visit my site BetterByDrBrooke.com. 
    Collagen is not a new supplement but there are new collagen products on the market daily and most every woman I talk to is taking collagen or feels she should be. It’s generally a scoop added to their morning coffee or post-workout shake in hopes of better joints, healthier hair and glowing skin. Most women aren’t aware however that joints need different collagen support than our hair so it’s important we know why we want to take collagen and then to be sure our supplement is doing just that. In this episode I talk about the difference between collagen and collagen peptides, what type of collagen is needed for hair vs. joints and how you can dose your collagen to get the results you’re after.
     
    Products I mentioned in the episode are:

    KION Essential Amino Acid Complex for workout recovery GetKion.com/BETTTEREVERYDAY 15% off
    NEEDED Collagen Peptides for types I and III collagen support save 20% with code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout www.thisisneeded.com. 
    GLOW Collagen Support with bamboo silica, natural vitamin C and Tremella Mushroom (5X times more hydrating than hyaluronic acid). Save 20% with this link.



    Stuff I Know You Will Love
    This episode is sponsored by Organifi whose green juice is my absolute favorite on the market. It’s certified USDA organic, contains 11 superfoods including the heavy hitters spirulina and matcha, includes 600mg of ashwaganda and is a great boost of antioxidants for better energy, less brain fog and better exercise recovery. And ladies, you’re going to want to try Harmony! Their female hormone balancing blend of shatavari, maca and vitex in a delicious cacao base. Save 20% with code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout. BUT I also mentioned in this show their collagen support product GLOW which is what I take daily! I checks all the boxes of collagen support without being actual collagen. Save 20% with this link!



    Did you know that 95% of women taking a prenatal are still nutrient deficient? The founders of Needed saw this as a big problem and I couldn’t agree more! But Needed quickly became a bigger solution to a bigger problem by providing more options for moms and moms to be. Women need so much support during the time from thinking about getting pregnant all the way to having little ones and so often they are left with options that don’t address their needs (prenatals that have nutrients in the wrong forms or that they can’t take due to nausea) or they are left with low energy, anxiety or even colds/flus while they are pregnant or nursing because there aren’t natural products that are considered safe during these times. Needed solved all of these problems as well as created a community of no-guilt, education and support for new moms and moms to be. Learn more about Needed and save 20% off your first order with code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout.
     
    In this episode I also mentioned NEEDED’s great bovine collagen peptide! Same deal, use the link and use code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout for your 20% off!
     
    NAD levels start to decline by up to 65% between ages 30 and 70 and this can lead to more signs of aging, less energy and worse recovery. Qualia NAD+ is formulated to target the entire process our cells undergo to make, use and then recycle NAD+ for optimal results that you can see and feel. With so many NAD boosting products out there, what sets Qualia NAD+ apart is that it uses three different precursors to support the various ways our cells make NAD+ and its very holistic formula supports this production pathway from start to finish with enzyme cofactors as well as raw materials. So spruce up your aging, tired mitochondria, improve genetic repar and stem cell renewal AND save big with this link that automatically gives 50% off the product AND if you enter code BETTEREVERYDAY you’ll get another 15% off!

    Dr Brooke Show #404 Truth About Natural Ozempic

    Dr Brooke Show #404 Truth About Natural Ozempic

    You’re seeing ads pop all over your phone and social media feeds for “natural ozempic”. Supplements that are said to work just like GLP-1 agonist medications, but is this true? In this episode I cover the most commonly marketed products to boost GLP-1: berberine, akkermansia and other GLP-1 probiotic blends and sodium-butyrate. I cover how these compounds work, how they impact GLP-1 and if the data holds up on these claims that they are the same as medications like Ozempic.
     
    In this show I reference a couple of past episode of the Dr Brooke Show:

    Dr Brooke Show #373 Akkermansia: Hope or Hype
     
    Dr Brooke Show #341 All About GLP-1 Meds



    As well, here are the products mentioned as well that I use in my practice: 
     
    Butyrate product: Tri Butyrin Supreme
    GLP-1 Probiotic Blend

    Dr Brooke Show #400 Hacking Your Female Metabolism With Lumen Founders Michal and Merav Mor

    For more info on how I can help you visit my site BetterByDrBrooke.com.
    As women, our metabolism can feel elusive as it is impacted by both monthly cycles and cycles of our lifetime such as perimenopause and menopause. The cyclical nature of our hormones will impact how we metabolize both carbohydrates and fats as well as impact our mood, motivation and stamina in the gym. Previously, utilizing respiratory exchange rate to measure metabolism  - which tells us if we are burning carbs or fats for fuel - was only available in a lab setting and not for your average girl. 
    Twin sisters Michal and Merav Mor took their interest in how to compete better in their Ironman triathlons and their PhDs in physiology and cardiac science respectively, and created Lumen. Lumen is a simple handheld device that can measure metabolism on each of us, right there at home, giving valuable insight into the intricacies of your unique biochemistry. Join me for this interview to hear how Lumen works and how you can use it to achieve your goals bet that weight loss, performance or longevity. These two women are as delightful as they are smart so don't miss this interview!

Put this podcast in your toolbox!

I’ve been following Dr. Brooke for years -her podcast and books. I love her Facebook community to connect with others trying to navigate staying healthy in a crazy world. She’s very quick to respond to emails if you have a question or need a quick piece of advice. She gets to the nitty-gritty on her podcast interviews. This is a great listen overall for women’s health and fitness.

She is very relatable and really wants to help struggling women feel their best. She also has women’s best interest at heart and isn’t into quick fixes for her own personal gain. She is also very responsive with questions!
