    #025 - Joseph Mencel (Massive Joe's) - 2019 Australian TGA Changes

    #025 - Joseph Mencel (Massive Joe's) - 2019 Australian TGA Changes

    On October 22nd, 2019 Australia’s TGA released “Consultation: Proposed clarification that certain sports supplements are therapeutic goods”, a document outlining proposed amendments to the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989. This proposed amendment would make most supplements under the regulation of the TGA, similar to the FDA’s drug office in the USA.



    We sat down with Joseph Mencel of Massive Joe’s to hear his thoughts. As a major importer, distributor, retailer, and someone with a legal background in Australia, he offers a unique point of view in the discussion. Joe is traveling so please forgive the lapses in connection.



    The update was later published by the Australia TGA in March of 2020.

    #024: Shawn Wells #3 | BAIBA (β-Aminoisobutyric Acid) - Weight Loss Ingredient Mimics Exercise?!

    In November of 2019, we welcome back Shawn Wells to talk about his new role as Chief Science Officer with NNB Nutrition. Specifically, he's joining us to discuss a novel new ingredient BAIBA (sold as MitoBurn by NNB) which has been studied for a few years but mostly unavailable from ingredient manufacturers.



    Tune in to learn about Shawn, BAIBA (also known as β-aminoisobutyric acid or 3-Aminoisobutyric acid), and the wonderful world of new novel ingredients!



    Articles at https://blog.priceplow.com/supplement-research/baiba and https://blog.priceplow.com/supplement-ingredients/mitoburn



    Long story short is that this molecule is generated when you exercise (it's generated from broken-down valine or thymine), and is more of a SIGNAL than an amino acid, activating various "exercise-induced" mechanisms in the body.



    When supplementing extra BAIBA in mice, a ton of interesting health effects occur:

    - Changes the characteristics of energy storing white adipose tissue into energy burning brown-like adipose tissue

    - Increases liver (hepatic) beta oxidation (fat burning)

    - Protect against fat gain in mice with partial leptin deficiency

    - Increase plasma beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), which is the primary ketone body generated when beta-oxidizing fat

    - Improve glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity

    - Prevent disuse-based bone and muscle loss
