    Episode. #250: The Foot-Brain Connection: How Proper Foot Function Impacts Longevity and Quality of Life with Mark Sisson

    Have you ever considered the importance of your feet in maintaining overall health and well-being? In this episode, I chat with Mark Sisson, founder of Peluva Footwear and Primal Kitchen, about the importance of functional movement and the impact of footwear on our health.

We discuss the concept of ground feel, toe articulation, and toe splay and how these factors are essential for optimal foot health. Overall, our conversation focuses on the importance of foot health and the negative effects of wearing restrictive shoes. 
     
    Mark Sisson, a New York Times bestselling author and former endurance athlete, has been researching ways to achieve optimal health and fitness for almost 40 years. He is the co-founder of Primal Kitchen®.

    Episode #249: Detoxing for Longevity: The Science and Strategies Behind Effective Detoxification

    Have you ever wondered if your detox routine is actually supporting your longevity goals? In today’s episode of the Longevity podcast, Dr. Chris Shade shares a crucial insight: toxins don't just make you feel bad; they actually accelerate the aging process.
     
    We discuss the importance of detoxification for longevity and overall well-being.

Our conversation explains the concept of Herxheimer reactions and provides insights into how to manage them. 
     
    We talk about the use of specific supplements, such as liposomes, binders, bitters, and progesterone, to support detoxification and address specific issues like mold exposure and viral infections. Overall, Dr. Shade shares the importance of detoxification for longevity and health.

    Before starting a detox protocol, ensure that the detoxification pathways, including the liver, kidneys, bile flow, and drainage, are open and functioning properly. 
    Supplements like liposomes, binders, bitters, and progesterone can support detoxification and address specific issues, but caution should be exercised during pregnancy, focusing on supporting drainage and binding rather than releasing more toxins from tissues.

    To get therapeutic benefits, it's best to take curcumin in supplement form rather than just using turmeric in cooking. The supplement should contain an extract that concentrates the curcuminoids. Absorption is enhanced by including black pepper extract (piperine) and healthy fats.

    Episode #246: Leveraging Essential Amino Acids for Muscle Growth, Preservation, and Vitality Across the Lifespan

    Episode #246: Leveraging Essential Amino Acids for Muscle Growth, Preservation, and Vitality Across the Lifespan

    Have you ever wondered what the key is to maintaining muscle mass and promoting health? In my latest podcast episode, I discuss the world of essential amino acids (EAAs) and their crucial role in building and preserving muscle, supporting vitality, and promoting overall health and longevity with Angelo Keely.
     
    Our conversation goes over the fact that essential amino acids are not just building blocks for protein synthesis, but they also act as powerful signaling molecules that stimulate muscle growth and prevent breakdown. This means that consuming the right balance of EAAs can help you maintain muscle mass, reduce fatigue, and recover more efficiently from exercise or injury, regardless of your age. Angelo and I talk about the wide-ranging applications of EAAs, from the NASA protocol for preventing muscle loss in astronauts to the use of EAAs in clinical settings for injury recovery. You'll gain practical tips on optimizing your EAA intake, the best sources of EAAs, and how to incorporate them into your daily routine for maximum benefits.
     
    Angelo Keely started Kion in 2017 in Boulder, Colorado, with the dream of building the healthiest, most inspiring work culture at the heart of a fast-growth, consumer products company that would be focused on motivating customers to go further on their personal health journey. The results have been astounding. Since 2017, Kion has developed many of the highest-possible quality supplements on the market and cultivated an incredibly passionate team.

    23:05 Digestibility of amino acids
    26:49 Maximizing muscle protein synthesis
    46:16 EAAs during exercise

    53:12 Using essential amino acid supplements to support muscle health
    55:08 Optimal timing for taking EAAs
    01:03:32 How to find a good supplement
     
    Key Takeaways:
    During exercise, essential amino acids are used up and need to be replenished to prevent muscle breakdown.
    In weight loss efforts, it is important to consume enough protein and essential amino acids to maintain muscle mass.
    Essential amino acid supplements can be a convenient way to ensure adequate intake and support muscle health. Essential amino acids promote muscle building and maintenance, making them beneficial for athletes and individuals of all ages.

    Key Takeaways:
    Mycotoxin urine tests that many people rely on to identify mold illness are likely detecting dietary sources of mycotoxins from contaminated foods like grains, nuts, coffee, etc. rather than mycotoxins inhaled from moldy buildings. 
    A holistic approach is recommended, focused on controlling moisture/humidity in buildings to prevent mold growth, using air purification, transitioning to a diet low in grains and high in fresh produce and pasture-raised meats to minimize dietary mycotoxins, and cultivating a positive mindset during the recovery process.

So helpful

One of the few experts in biohacking who doesn’t constantly feel the need to interrupt whoever they are interviewing to insert their own thoughts. I love how she allows them to speak. Thank you!
