    HVMN Ketones & Metabolic Health l Using Exogenous Ketones for Fasting, Better Sleep, Exercise and Metabolic Flexibility

    HVMN Ketones & Metabolic Health l Using Exogenous Ketones for Fasting, Better Sleep, Exercise and Metabolic Flexibility

    Michael Brandt, co-founder of H.V.M.N., joins the podcast for a comprehensive discussion on ketones and metabolic health. He breaks down what exogenous ketones are, whether we should take ketones while fasting, how they impact sleep & recovery, and shares information on the link between diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy & the ketogenic diet.
    Everything Michael Brandt does is fast and intense. Aside from cruising through marathons at a cool 6-minute mile pace, he and fellow Stanford alumni co-founder, Geoffrey Woo, have scaled H.V.M.N. in a few short years. Most recently, they introduced the second iteration of their flagship ketone drink, Ketone-IQTM. H.V.M.N. invented Ketone-IQTM because they believe people should spend more time with elevated ketone levels for better health and performance. Through Michael’s steadfast leadership, H.V.M.N not only launched the world’s first drinkable ketone, but is tracking to redefine the limits of human performance, metabolism, and longevity to combat the global metabolic health crisis. 
    Alongside his co-founder, the duo secured a $6 million dollar contract from the U.S. Special Operations Command to continue research into the benefits of ketones. The pair gained early interest from pro-athletes including Former Olymian Speed Skater Apolo Ohno, Professional Racing cyclist Vittoria Bussi and Ultrarunner Jeff Browning and notable early investors such as Andreessen Horowitz, and Joe Montana (Hall of Fame NFL Quarterback). 
    As a father of a newborn, Michael has increasingly limited free time but remains an avid triathlete and marathoner with a 2:42 personal record.

    The Third Wave of Psychedelics l The Importance of Prep & Integration and How Plant Medicine Enhances Compassion and Interconnectedness

    The Third Wave of Psychedelics l The Importance of Prep & Integration and How Plant Medicine Enhances Compassion and Interconnectedness

    Paul Austin joined the podcast for a fascinating discussion about the third wave of psychedelics! He shares how and when the first and second wave ended, and how we can support the third wave to change the future of the psychedelic space. He breaks down everything we need to know about this topic, including the different options for dosing and the importance of integration into our daily lives. He also shares what's currently happening as far as decriminalization and legalization and where he sees the industry going in the next few years.

    Paul F. Austin is an entrepreneur, public speaker, and educator. He has founded two companies in the emerging psychedelic space, Third Wave and Synthesis. Within Third Wave, Paul leads his team in building an educational platform to ensure psychedelic substances become responsibly integrated into our cultural framework. Currently, Third Wave offers long-form psychedelic guides, online microdosing programs, and an industry-best network of clinics and retreat providers. In 2018, Paul co-founded Synthesis, and led several high-dose psilocybin truffle retreats over the span of one year. When not leading retreats, Paul headed up branding, marketing, and public relations for Synthesis before stepping back to focus on Third Wave full-time. Because of his pioneering work at the intersection of psychedelic use, personal transformation, and professional success, Paul has been featured in the BBC, Forbes, and Rolling Stone. Paul sees psychedelic use as a skill, one that becomes more refined as we explore the many nuances of these awe-inspiring medicines and molecules. Learning how to hone this skill will be crucial in the story of humanity’s present-future evolution.

    Eat For Energy & Mitochondrial Optimization with Ari Whitten

    Eat For Energy & Mitochondrial Optimization with Ari Whitten

    We are so excited to share this incredible interview with Ari Whitten, the founder of The Energy Blueprint. We have been following his work for many years and are always blown away by the information and tips he shares. He kicks off the episode by sharing his health journey with an Epstein Barr Virus diagnosis that led him to discover the true causes of chronic fatigue. He explains the importance of the mitochondria (and mitochondrial biogenesis); how the cell danger response impacts energy; the major role our circadian rhythm plays in energy levels; how melatonin isn't just a "sleep supplement"; and the fascinating, yet frightening effects of caffeine on our brains.

    Ari Whitten is the Founder of The Energy Blueprint. He is an energy and fatigue specialist who focuses on taking an evidence-based approach to energy enhancement, nutrition, exercise, natural health expert, and #1 best-selling author. He has been studying nutrition and holistic health for more than 2 decades and has a Bachelor of Science from San Diego State University in Kinesiology (with specialization in fitness, nutrition, and health). He also has a background in exercise physiology and fitness. He holds two advanced certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist. In addition, he recently completed the 3 years of coursework for his Ph.D. Clinical Psychology, an education that rounds out all aspects – nutrition, fitness, and psychology – of his approach to optimal health. Ari is a tireless researcher who has obsessively devoted the last 20 years of his life to the pursuit of being on the cutting‑edge of the science on health and energy enhancement.
