    Is Your Oral Health Quietly Destroying Your Testosterone Levels with Trina Felber

    What kind of impact does our oral health have on our overall health? A lot, as it turns out!

    Today's guest is Trina Felber, Founder and President of Primal Life Organics, and she's 'mouthing off' on what we need to do to improve our oral health. She’s an expert on oral health, so it’s all good that she does.

    We talk about how dental health is connected to testosterone levels, hormones, and conditions like cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

    We explore the importance of the oral microbiome and how natural dental products can support oral and gut health by keeping the mouth alkaline and remineralizing our teeth.

    Tina also discusses the potential health risks of fluoride and the benefits of light therapy for teeth whitening and gum health.

    Discover why we need an alkaline mouth, why mouthwash is a bad idea, and protecting our nitric oxide production is a very, very GOOD idea for men in this episode that's gonna make you reevaluate your teeth brushing routine - for the better.

    Come and join us and let's learn what we can about our oral microbiome so we can flash a truly healthy smile!

    "If what's in your mouth isn't healthy then what you're swallowing isn't healthy either. And that's seeding your gut bacteria. Most people can't heal their gut fully until they heal their mouth." ~ Trina Ferber

    Dementia Prevention with Dr Mitch Clionski

    Dementia Prevention with Dr Mitch Clionski

    How can we prevent dementia? Did you know that up to 60% of dementia cases may be preventable through lifestyle changes?


    Today's inspiring guest is neuropsychologist Dr. Mitchell Cleonski, sharing his story and expertise on a subject that is very close to my heart – it runs in my family and I know just how devastating it can be.

    So please dive in with me and let's learn about how to improve our nutrition, manage our stress, and get proper medical care to support brain health as we age.


    Taking care of our health can help stave off cognitive decline even in those with a family history of dementia. Ask your doctor for a cognitive screening to establish a baseline and monitor any changes. Early detection is key!


    As Dr. Cleonski says during our conversation, "Education is one of the moderators of future dementia risk." Our education starts here and now. Please join us.

    "Dementia is a progressive neurological disease. So it's a change in how our brains are structured, and how they function." ~ Dr. Cleonski


    In This Episode:
    Understanding dementia and its impact as we ageWhat symptoms should we be looking for?Can you prevent dementia by taking good care of yourself?Can you reverse dementia when you get it?Lifestyle factors that lead to dementiaCan stress lead to dementia?

    5 Worst Diets for Men Over 40 with Funk Roberts

    5 Worst Diets for Men Over 40 with Funk Roberts

    What are some of the worst diets out there for men over 40? I'm Funk Roberts and my goal is to empower you with knowledge and tools to make informed dietary decisions that will positively impact your life.

    Sure, perhaps a Paleo diet worked for cavemen – but they only lived to 30, right? The negative impact of specific diets on your health and well-being, diets that are hyped up as quick fixes on social media, cannot be underestimated for men over 40.

    We're at that stage when we need to take our hormonal balance and cortisol levels into serious consideration as we aim for a diet that becomes a lifestyle.

    And so in this episode I'm critiquing some of the more popular diets out there and looking at them from the perspective of a man in his 40s, 50s, 60s, or even 70s. A man who needs nutritional support to provide for his family.

    I understand that navigating the world of nutrition can be overwhelming, but I'm here to guide you every step of the way. In this episode I also offer the ultimate solution to optimizing your nutrition for long-term lifestyle success. Please join us.

    "I just need to follow a nutrition lifestyle that supports my hormones, my metabolism, my overall health, my energy, my mind, my brain. And it's easy to follow because I don't have to count calories. I don't have to weigh my food. I don't have to restrict complete food groups. It's all balanced." ~ Funk Roberts

    In This Episode:

    Addressing the harmful diets for men over 40Understanding hormonal changes and metabolism in midlifeWhat most fitness trainers DON'T understandThe consequences of unhealthy dieting habitsBalanced meal planning for men over 40What nutrition for men over 40 should actually involve

    10 Vital Energy-Boosting Nutrition Tips for Men Over 40

    10 Vital Energy-Boosting Nutrition Tips for Men Over 40

    As men over 40, it can feel like our energy is constantly being sapped throughout the day. But there are simple changes we can make to feel more energized.

    Increasing or boosting your energy levels through the day by drinking an energy drink or getting a candy bar is not working. You know it's not working, but you may not know how to change it.
    What if I tell you that you can be energized during the most strenuous days of your life by choosing the right foods in the correct order?

    In today's episode, I share my top 10 tips and strategies for improving and sustaining your energy levels through nutrition.

    I start by discussing the importance of balanced plate meals at your three daily meals.
    Then, I dive into the top 10 tips. First up - energize your mornings with a filling breakfast. Next, stay hydrated by drinking a gallon of water daily.

    I also cover the best exercise strategies and the surprising benefits of sleep management.
    When you start implementing these strategies, you will immediately see and feel the difference in your energy levels. Thanks for listening!

    “Nutrition is going to provide us with a pivotal role in boosting our metabolism throughout the day, which is going to give us more energy, helping us increase and sustain our energy throughout the day, while obviously optimizing our hormones or testosterone or thyroid, you know, our fat loss or health issues that we may be dealing with.”

    —Funk Roberts

Future client

I have been listening to Funk all week and am blown away with all this information! I have done 3 of the You Tube workouts and slight change in my diet and have already seen a slight difference. I can relate to some of the issues as we men are getting older and don’t recover like we did when we were younger. Thank you Funk for this GEM of knowledge!!!! I am hooked and will look forward to becoming part of the Over 40 Brotherhood!

Sincerely,
Victor age 51

Funk Roberts is awesome.

Funk has help transform my thoughts of training after I was having issues with injuries due to over training, struggles with the desire to train due to failure of seeing results and not being able to keep a nutrition plan of feeding the beast with in.

I find Funk’s approach to be a sustainable way to see consistent results for the 30+ years. Thank you for the amount and quality of content you have on your podcast, over 40 shred app and your weekly coaching calls.
