In Episode #47, Jesse interviews Dr. Eric Braverman, best-selling author of books The Edge Effect and Younger You, and founder of the PATH Medical Center in New York. Dr. Braverman explains the importance of brain diagnostics for overall health and how performing “living autopsies” can help us age optimally.
We also learn how a protein called klotho can boost cognitive faculties at any age, and get a peek at how astronauts regulate their sleep-cycles.
