Proper brain health begins in our guts. Everything we eat changes our biochemistry, affecting our moods and the way we think. Here, nutrition experts point out the differences between good and bad “brain foods” and outline intelligent choices for overall health.


Here are few of our favorites:
And check out the list below for the best of the rest.


Lion-Mare-Mushroom

Tune in to our first ever fungal episode where Eric Cerecedes joins Jesse for a wildly interesting conversation about Lion’s Mane mushrooms.

Omega-3-shoot-out

A shoot-out between the various types of Omega-3-fatty-acid-containing foods and supplements – from production methods to bio-absorption percentages to dosage, diet and dangers.

Alexander-Cautionary-Tale

Alexander was an amazing guy who truncated his own epoch-making career for the love of one too many tankards of unwatered Grecian wine. If the author’s propositions are correct – and he paints a darned compelling picture – isn’t it worth considering the moral of the life of one of the most venerated humans in all world history?

creatine-brain-brawn

Creatine has long been known as a supplement-of-choice for athletes and weightlifters… but what cognitive benefits might Creatine provide?

Starvation-benefits

Dr. Longo shares with us his research on the beneficial effects of fasting on everything from our immune responses to our lifespans, and addresses some points of curiosity that arose over the course of our calorie-free week.

starving

If inconveniencing myself in a painful-but-not-overtly-dangerous way can, very possibly, keep me from dying from something that a whopping proportion of the population dies of, that’s pretty great.

Blood-Chemistry

Dr. Alexis Shields, naturopathic doctor and blood chemistry specialist, explains how blood chemistry analysis can be used to monitor and improve overall health, and how the insights we gain can help us maintain optimal neurotransmitter levels and boost cognition.

ketosis-cancer

In Episode #56, Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried of Boston College stops by to introduce us to his research on cancer as a metabolic disease – not a genetic one. He explains how regular therapeutic fasting can increase mitochondrial respiration, and how caloric restriction can help us effectively “starve out” cancer cells.

l-tryptophan

We’re joined by Professor Gilles Guillemin, world leader in research on L-tryptophan and neuroinflammation.
