My guest on today's show, Dr. Chidozie Ojobor, has devoted his entire career to unraveling the complexities of biological systems, particularly the gut microbiome. In this episode, you'll dive deep into the Vitract gut microbiome test with Dr. Chidozie and I. He'll dissect my personal Vitract results, giving you a firsthand look at what this test can reveal. You'll also explore how 16s sequencing technology identifies the diverse bacteria living in your gut, what the test can tell you about your gut diversity, the balance between beneficial and harmful bacteria, the production of microbial metabolites, and signs of gut dysbiosis. Plus, you'll discover how these results can be used to create personalized recommendations for your diet, probiotics, and lifestyle changes. Dr. Ojobor is a scientist with over 15 years of research experience in bacterial genetics. He has a bachelor's degree in microbiology and obtained his Ph.D. in molecular genetics from the University of Toronto. Dr. Ojobor has spent a decade developing novel antimicrobial entities that target disease-causing bacteria in complex biological ecosystems such as the gut. In 2019, he won the Global Citizen Award for combating drug-resistant bacteria implicated in exacerbating cystic fibrosis. Dr. Ojobor’s previous research experience includes phage therapy, CRISPR technology, and gastroenteritis of viral origin in children. Today, he and his team at Vitract are transforming that research expertise into developing comprehensive and accessible gut microbiome testing for clinicians who are keen on improving the gut health of their clients. Vitract (use code BEN10 to save 10%) combines molecular microbiology, complex math, and AI to transform the gut health of Canadians and Americans. Their flagship 16s gut microbiome sequencing test, which I did and which Dr. Ojobor and I discuss on this show, has garnered widespread adoption and is now actively employed in numerous clinics. Vitract's test stands out on two crucial fronts: accessibility and actionability. With an affordable price point, customers can now seamlessly incorporate gut testing into their health regimen, facilitating retesting to gauge progress over time. The test results and detailed reports that you receive with Vitract not only illuminate the composition of the gut microbiome but, more importantly, provide actionable insights on how to modify bacteria for optimal health. Dr. Ojobor and his team's commitment to making advanced gut health insights accessible and actionable marks a significant leap forward in personalized healthcare.

Imagine you had a map that revealed a hidden landscape teeming with secrets about your body — decoding your gut health, your genetic predispositions, your oxidative stress levels, and even your biological age.  It's a lot more accessible than you might think... In this episode, you'll get a breakdown of the intricate world of lab testing, mapping out the route to peak health and high performance. From comprehensive gut examinations and cutting-edge hormone analyses to the pivotal Omega-3 Index Report, you're about to get a roadmap for interpreting your body's data. I'll also share my rigorous testing routine, including annual gut and blood tests, once-in-a-lifetime genetic tests, and various one-off samplings, to demonstrate how to tailor testing for your health needs. Why is this so crucial? Because, as I always say, you can't manage what you don't measure. The intel gathered isn't just fascinating — it’s pivotal for anyone serious about optimizing their health and wellness. But here's the kicker: while lab testing is necessary, it can often be unnecessarily expensive. That's why I've created a one-stop-shop resource page featuring the best, most affordable at-home health tests from Rupa Health. Additionally, I've enlisted AI tools and an expert coaching team to help you decode your treasure trove of data after testing to help you minimize costs. Throughout this show, you'll hear about crucial markers like lipid peroxides and 8-OHdG that can tell you a lot about oxidative damage (how fast you're aging on a cellular level). You'll also get to dive into mold and mycotoxin testing you can do from the comfort of your home with Rupa Health, and I’ll explain why the Omega-3 Index Report is more than worth its $84 price tag if you're keen on getting your fatty acid balance in check. There's even the fascinating realm of biological age testing to see if your cells are younger or older than your chronological age. Tune in to uncover the essential lab tests that can reveal everything from hidden food sensitivities and heavy metal toxicity to the intricacies of your gut's microbiome. You won't want to miss this deep dive into the nuances of oxidative stress, fatty acid profiles, hormone health, and more to get a clear picture of how to fine-tune every aspect of your well-being.

Bloating, gas, constipation, and food intolerances — you've probably experienced these symptoms before. In fact, a study evaluating gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms in Americans found that out of 71,812 people, 61 percent reported GI problems in the last week. Experiencing gut health issues is nothing to take lightly, though...   For example, "leaky gut" — an increase in intestinal permeability — can allow toxins, bacteria, and undigested food particles into the bloodstream, potentially causing inflammation and autoimmune reactions. Disruptions in the gut-brain axis may also contribute to conditions like anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Additionally, malabsorption of nutrients in the gut can lead to deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.  In this "Best of Gut Health" compilation episode, you'll embark on a journey through the world of gut health with my top subject matter experts, getting the opportunity to explore alternatives to GLP-1 weight loss drugs and the latest in probiotics, uncovering the secrets of microbiome testing and its impact on your mood, gaining insights into the delicate balance of a child's microbiome, unlocking the intricate link between eating disorders and gut health, delving into the power of cold thermogenesis in triggering fat loss, and much more! Each of my guests offers a deep dive into gut health, bringing a unique perspective to the table. Dr. Coleen Cutcliffe emphasizes the role of specific bacteria in stimulating GLP-1 production and highlights the importance of a high-fiber diet in this process, which metabolizes into short-chain fatty acids, ultimately influencing insulin responses, blood sugar regulation, and food cravings. Meanwhile, Dr. Patrick Hanaway sheds light on microbiome testing, explaining the significance of individual biomarkers like calprotectin and pancreatic elastase in assessing gut health. He also touches on the impact of gut bacteria on mood and the emerging field of psychobiotics. On the other hand, Raja Dhir discusses supporting children's microbiome, stressing factors like breastfeeding and diet diversity in shaping an infant's gut microbiome. Additionally, Dr. Lauryn Lax explores the concept of total gut reset, linking eating disorders to gut health and discussing strategies for managing conditions like constipation. Lastly, Joel Greene tackles the role of cold thermogenesis in weight loss, explaining its impact on fat loss and sharing tips for optimizing this process for better results. With a wealth of expert perspectives, tips, biohacks, and more, this show is tailor-made for anyone experiencing gut health issues and searching for answers.

I recently read The Glutathione Revolution: Fight Disease, Slow Aging, and Increase Energy with the Master Antioxidant and had my mind blown by a ton of facts I never knew about glutathione, the body's so-called "master antioxidant" that plays a crucial role in protecting cells from oxidative stress and damage caused by free radicals, building and repairing tissue, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and supporting the immune system. After 11 years of clinical research on glutathione, Dr. Nayan Patel finally shares how powerful and essential glutathione is to the body’s detox system, discusses the various benefits it has with slowing the aging process, and explains how you can increase your levels naturally. Dr. Patel is regarded as the foremost expert on absorbable forms of glutathione and holds the only patent on transdermal glutathione. In addition to many other topics such as cellular function and hormone replacement, he is a highly sought-after global authority on the critical role that glutathione and all other antioxidants and endogenous molecules play in the body. Along with traveling the world educating practitioners on advanced biochemistry and anti-aging science, Dr. Patel also serves as adjunct faculty at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy, where he is also an alumnus. He is a licensed compounding pharmacist who is still involved in designing and compounding drugs and nutrition therapies for his patients, including athletes, CEOs, highly stressed actors, physicians, and the community where he has practiced for 25 years. Besides being a pharmacist, CEO, and leader, he is a father to his three kids, husband to his supportive wife, and son to his dad who is his inspiration to help heal the world. Dr. Patel is a firm believer in providing the body with the tools it needs to defend itself and promote a healthy lifestyle that fits the pace of the modern world. His company, Auro Wellness (use code BEN10 for a 10% discount), is deeply committed to research and innovation.  Ready to explore more about one of the latest breakthroughs in anti-aging science?

From his earliest years, Hagen Thiers battled relentless adversaries: headaches, dizziness, and the torment of sleepless nights. These problems persisted, and by the time he was 11 years old, he was diagnosed with electro-hypersensitivity. Now an expert and inventor in groundbreaking electromagnetic field (EMF) protection, Hagen joins me on the podcast to share his journey of creating technology that can protect you, your home, and your family from the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation. Just like him, around 10 percent of Germans live with the debilitating effects of electrosmog. For Hagen, escaping into areas with no electrosmog pollution wasn’t an option. In 2014, he founded Qi-Technologies, named after Hagen's advanced invention, which reduces the strength of electromagnetic fields in its vicinity by depolarizing artificial radiation, such as that emitted by mobile phones, Wi-Fi, and other sources of electrical pollution.  Since 2019, Hagen has been able to show numerous studies validating the effectiveness of Qi technology. Further studies are in progress. With a focus on delivering its products to customers internationally, Qi Technologies has now become Waveguard (use code BENGREENFIELD20 to save 20%). Join Hagen and me as we journey into the world of EMF protection and discover how you can safeguard yourself and your loved ones from the pervasive effects of electromagnetic radiation.

Alcohol and longevity — it's an extremely controversial topic that most health experts shy away from.  But I'm not afraid of courting controversy when there's scientific evidence to consider. Sure, you've heard the warnings about alcohol being a toxin that should be avoided at all costs — and in some cases this is true. But what if I told you that in moderate amounts (emphasis on moderate), alcohol can actually be beneficial for longevity and brain health? In this episode, I'm diving deep into the latest research on alcohol's effects on your body, and why I choose to drink almost every single day. First, I'll explain the concept of mitohormesis — how temporary stressors like alcohol can actually boost your mitochondrial function and resilience when consumed in the right amounts. Next, you'll gain insights into finding the "Goldilocks Zone" for your alcohol intake — the amount of alcohol consumption that provides health benefits without the notorious downsides of drinking too much booze. I'll also discuss supplements like dihydromyricetin (DHM) that can block alcohol's intoxicating effects while still allowing you to reap the rewards of moderate drinking. Additionally, you'll hear about using binders like chlorella, charcoal, and fruit pectin to remove toxins like acetaldehyde from your body after drinking, my routine for enjoying a nightly glass of organic wine or a cocktail, and recommendations for healthier alcoholic beverage choices like Dry Farm Wines, shrubs, and even ketone "alcohol" alternatives. Whether you're a teetotaler or a casual drinker, this episode might just reshape your thoughts around alcohol. By the end, if you choose to partake in this longevity strategy, you'll have a step-by-step game plan for your own conscientious alcohol consumption.

In the world of tech titans, competition extends beyond the boardroom to space conquest and extravagant lifestyles. However, one of the most intriguing competitions focuses on reversing the aging process itself: the Rejuvenation Olympics, Bryan Johnson's brainchild. Quickly rising to the top of the leaderboard is Julie Clark, a single mom in her 50s earning less than $100k per year. Today, she joins the show to teach you how to defy aging with her budget-friendly routine, which includes regular exercise, sauna sessions, a balanced diet with limited refined sugars and grains, and affordable supplements. Despite not having a billionaire's budget, Julie's aging rate — 0.665 (she only ages 66 out of 100 days) — is remarkable, demonstrating that longevity is within reach for many, without breaking the bank. Unlike many of her counterparts in the Rejuvenation Olympics, her routine is somewhat ordinary. She spends $27 a month on a gym membership and $79 a month on the longevity supplement NOVOS. Julie consumes about 16 ounces of a variety of vegetables daily, snacking on carrots, radishes, and peppers during her workday. She limits the amount of refined sugars and grains she eats, and at least three times a week, Julie uses the sauna for 20 minutes before taking a cold shower. Through these simple, affordable health and longevity methods, Julie is considered a top competitor at the Rejuvenation Olympics — measured by the DunedinPACE test, the gold standard for assessing the pace of human aging. This test analyzes DNA methylation marks in white blood cells, providing unique insight into an individual's rate of aging. In this episode, you'll uncover the diverse approaches to anti-aging with me and Julie, showcasing that while there is no one-size-fits-all solution, healthy habits, including exercise, diet, and smart supplementation, can significantly impact healthspan and lifespan. Whether you're a billionaire or an average Joe, the key to longevity may be simpler and more accessible than you think.

As I've been researching and writing Boundless 2.0, I've found myself reevaluating many of the health and fitness strategies that I previously endorsed.In this episode, prepare to have your perspective challenged as I discuss some of the significant shifts in thinking I've undergone while exploring the latest science and experimenting with biohacking. To kick off the show, I discuss one of the biggest areas where I've updated my thinking — the ketogenic diet. While I was previously gung-ho about strict therapeutic ketosis for all sorts of applications, I now have a more nuanced view that involves limiting carbohydrates during the day for enhanced focus and consuming 200 to 300g in the evening to support better sleep and hormonal balance. Additionally, I've moved away from a saturated fat-heavy keto diet to a Mediterranean-style approach with foods like avocados, olives, oily fish, and olive oil. When it comes to exercise, I used to be that guy who obsessively crushed two-a-day workout sessions. But the more I dig into the research, the more I've come to understand the importance of staying within the "Goldilocks Zone" — enough training to accrue benefits, but not so much that you risk overtraining. Another controversial mind shift I've experienced is around statins, which was prompted by my advanced cardiac screening. My Cleerly test revealed plaque buildup, leading me to start a PCSK9 inhibitor and a daily dose of rosuvastatin and acetamide. While I still don't think these drugs should be blindly taken, in some cases the benefits can outweigh the risks if properly monitored. My view on cold exposure has also slightly changed after digging into research. I used to be all about long ice baths and open-water cold swims, but now I've shifted to shorter, more frequent cold exposures. (You'll hear multiple times throughout this show that optimizing your body is all about finding the right balance and avoiding excessive stress.) This show also covers topics like the hidden benefits of aspirin, ginger, and yes... even "dick pills." Plus, you'll gain insights into sleep hacking, why I'm taking a more discerning stance on cannabis, and the dangers of extreme biohacking.

Holy cow! Already been listening to others talk about some of these therapies, but this episode was so incredibly intriguing. Even more crazy is the fact that Dr. Liurance's practice is the town I'm looking to move to! I've had some serious chronic health problems that have kept me from living normal life, and I'm looking forward to working with him in the near future. Thank you a million for having him on, Ben! So glad I just "happened" to see this episode and download it.

I found Leblok clothes working best for me being EHS, but wherever you buy Leblok, make sure to deal only with genuine distributor because now it is so many cheaper copies in the internet, people try to make money on us all by copying the genuine products!

Wonder how much $$ Pfizer paid Cook for this crap. Surley not the cool 65mil the Australian NSW Premier got for mandatory vaccines but probably a pretty penny

Wait whut? These vaccines are "relatively safe"? Compared to what? other vaccines? Isn't that demonstrably false and incorrect? how do you reconcile that with Dr Peter McCullough saying that the data showed by February 2021 that there were enough adverse events that the vaccine should have been pulled at that point based on any previous standards for vaccine safety?
