    Solocast: Unleashing the Superhero Within. How I Found My Second Peak 20 Years After Olympic Retirement. A Deep Dive into Peptides, Health Optimization, and Autonomy. EP 012

    Imagine waking up every day feeling like a superhero. I, Stephen McCain, a former professional athlete turned biohacker, experienced this when I took charge of my health post-retirement. After grappling with a reckless lifestyle and deteriorating health, I took a leap into the unknown, giving up alcohol, embracing a healthy lifestyle, biohacking, and discovering the transformative power of regenerative medicine. 
    Not only did I regain my energy and vitality, but I also successfully transitioned from my gymnastics career into a career in Hollywood and eventually a health professional. This video is my hero's journey and a possible guide for you on how you too can tap into the innately powerful potential of your health.
    So gear up for an educational and inspiring speech that underscores the power of peptides, health optimization, and the importance of health ownership.


    This video is a speech I gave at the 2023 World Peptide Congress. Taught by the revolutionary leaders of Regenerative Medicine, this two day symposium covers the latest medical advancements that are redefining the field of anti-aging medicine. age-related disease.With world-renowned speakers and international guest lecturers, the Peptide World Congress will change how you understand aging and treating age-related disease, for good.

    Peptide Bioregulators: Decoding the Secrets of Soviet Bio-Technology to Regenerate Organs with Phil Micans. EP 011

    Peptide Bioregulators: Decoding the Secrets of Soviet Bio-Technology to Regenerate Organs with Phil Micans. EP 011

    Want to know how to regenerate your organs? Sound crazy? Well, not so fast. A new revolution in healthcare is taking place. It's the understanding that short-chained peptides like the ones found in organ meats are recognized by the body as highly specific gene switches. 
    These tiny peptides can pass through cell membranes without a receptor, latch onto the DNA, and signal protein synthesis that leads to the repair of the specific organ being treated.

    These gene switches are called Peptide Bioregulators.

    A secret once kept by the Soviet military now stands at the frontier of modern medicine. Join me for a riveting discussion with my guest, Phil Micans, an authority on bio-regulating peptides, as we unpack the potential of these short chains of amino acids to revolutionize health and longevity. Grasp the essence of these gene switches, trace their fascinating journey, and understand how they are transforming the medical landscape.

    Optimizing NAD Levels: the most important molecule for Healthspan. How to easily test and optimize your NAD levels with Dr Jin-Xiong She. EP 008

    In this episode of Stephen McCain podcast, I interview Jin-Xiong She, founder & CEO of Jinfiniti Precision Medicine, which develops and markets Longevity tests to help people maximize their healthspan.
    We discuss the importance of optimizing NAD. NAD is a vital coenzyme involved in numerous biochemical processes in the body. It plays a crucial role in energy metabolism, DNA repair, and cellular regeneration. By increasing NAD+ levels, our bodies can more effectively repair damaged cells, improve cognitive function, and enhance energy levels.
    NAD supplements have become very popular in the last couple of years. However, we should strive to test and optimize the dose of our supplements to truly get the proven benefits of NAD.

    By the end of the episode, you will know how to easily test your NAD levels in the comfort of your own home. How to interpret the test results. And, learn about a product that has been proven to optimize NAD levels in 90% of the people using it.
