  • In this episode, my guest is Satchin Panda, PhD, professor and the director of the Regulatory Biology Laboratories at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. We discuss his lab’s discovery that “time-restricted eating” (TRE) aka intermittent fasting, is beneficial effects for metabolic health and longevity. Dr. Panda explains how TRE, and also longer fasts, can positively impact obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular health, age-related chronic diseases, and improve mood and cognitive performance. He also describes how the timing of eating, light exposure and exercise that ~50% of all people engage in, negatively impacts their health and explains how specific simple adjustments to these can positively shift their subjective feelings of health and biomarkers of cardiovascular function, glucose regulation and metabolism. We discuss how our circadian behaviors, which include our patterns of eating, sleeping and socializing, have an enormous impact on our biology, mood and health and how by simply confining our calorie consumption to a semi-regular daily window, can positively impact our physical health, mental health and longevity.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1 (Athletic Greens): https://athleticgreens.com/hubermanHVMN: https://hvmn.com/hubermanEight Sleep: https://eightsleep.com/hubermanThesis: https://takethesis.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://www.insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Dr. Satchin Panda(00:03:02) Sponsors: HVMN, Eight Sleep, Thesis, Momentous(00:07:24) Time-Restricted Eating (TRE), Calorie Restriction (CR) & Health(00:14:38) Mealtimes & Circadian Clock(00:21:34) Circadian Rhythm, Meal Anticipation, Digestion(00:25:28) Breaking a Fast, Burning Fat(00:32:49) Sponsor: AG1 (Athletic Greens)(00:34:04) CR, Time Restricted Eating, Circadian Rhythm & Longevity(00:47:20) Gender, Hormones & CR; Relative Energy Deficient in Sports (REDS)(00:52:40) Physical Activity, Nutrition & Feeding Window(00:59:04) Nutrition Timing, Quality & Quantity; Low- Carbohydrate Diet(01:03:00) Caffeine, Nighttime Socialization, Fire, Breakfast(01:15:07) Sponsor: InsideTracker(01:16:20) Circadian Rhythm, “Night Owls” & Genetics(01:26:37) Morning vs. Nighttime Discussions, “Me Time”(01:30:08) Light Sensitivity & “Night Owls”; Puberty, Melatonin(01:36:05) Shift Workers, Health & Disease(01:45:43) Artificial Lights, Young Adults & Sleep, Metabolic Dysfunction(01:50:59) Firefighters, Sleep & TRE; Cardiovascular Health, Blood Glucose(02:05:18) Shift Workers & Sleep; Alcohol & Caffeine(02:09:15) 12- Hour Feeding Window for Adults & Children, Sleep(02:22:10) Meal Timing(02:25:20) “Complete Fast”, Longer Fasts, Physical Health & Mental Health(02:28:12) “Fat Fasting”, Blood Glucose & Insulin(02:31:57) Fasting, Metformin, Rapamycin & Longevity; Human Applicability?(02:39:14) Circadian Rhythm & Metabolism(02:41:36) Ontime Health App, Circadian Clock App(02:46:17) Zero-Cost Support, Spotify & Apple Reviews, YouTube Feedback, Sponsors, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, I discuss our body’s most vital and essential nutrient—water. I explain the structure of water and how it is used by the cells and tissues of our body, how much water we each need to drink and when in order to optimize our mental focus and physical performance; and I include how exercise, humidity, heat, and caffeine affect our hydration needs. I explain how temperature and pH influence water’s physical properties and if there is any scientific basis for drinking so-called “pH water” or “alkalized water” to improve health. I explain how to test your tap water for contaminants (e.g., endocrine disruptors) and the documented problems with fluoride in drinking water. I provide options for filtering drinking water and describe different water types (e.g., reverse osmosis, hydrogen-enriched, electrolyzed reduced, deuterium depleted, etc.). Since the human body is mostly water (55-80% depending on one’s age) and water has essential roles in health, disease and cellular function, everyone ought to benefit from understanding how best to clean our tap water, hydrate effectively and in some cases, adjust the type of water we drink to allow our brain and body to function optimally in regard to health and performance.For recommended water filters, tests and the full show notes, please visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1 (Athletic Greens): https://athleticgreens.com/hubermanLMNT: https://drinklmnt.com/hubermanThesis: https://takethesis.com/hubermanHVMN: https://hvmn.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://www.insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Water(00:03:33) Tool Deliberate Cold Exposure, Immersion & Showers Mood & Fat Loss(00:15:26) Sponsors: LMNT, Thesis, HVMN, Momentous(00:19:27) Water: Physical Properties & Chemistry(00:26:32) Bonds & Water Phases, “Structured Water”(00:34:07) Body, Cells & Water(00:36:22) Sponsor: AG1 (Athletic Greens)(00:37:37) Water as a Solvent, Temperature & pH(00:41:49) Water Transport in Cells, Aquaporin Channels(00:49:46) Alkaline/pH Water; Temperature, pH & Water Transport(00:55:14) Water Cellular Function, Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) & Antioxidants(01:01:20) Sponsor: InsideTracker(01:02:38) Tool: Baseline Hydration(01:11:35) Tool: Hydration & Exercise, Galpin Equation(01:15:40) Tool: Hydration, Sauna, Humidity & Sweat; Thirst, Caffeine(01:19:15) Hydration; Cognitive & Physical Performance (01:23:53) Tool: Water Filtration; Nighttime Urination(01:29:35) Tap Water Tests, Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), Fluoride & Thyroid Health(01:37:18) Tool: Water Filters(01:44:18) Tool: Resting Tap Water & Sediment(01:48:13) Tool: “Hard Water”; Magnesium, Calcium & Cardiovascular Health(01:53:40) Water Temperature(01:56:42) Water Types: Distilled, Reverse Osmosis, Hydrogen-Enriched(02:03:26) Hydrogen-Enriched Water, Magnesium, Optimize Hydration(02:11:13) Tool: Molecular Hydrogen Tablets, Water pH(02:14:05) Structured Water(02:16:39) Tool: Water Pipes, Faucet Filter(02:19:42) Zero-Cost Support, Spotify & Apple Reviews, YouTube Feedback, Sponsors, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, my guest is Oded Rechavi, Ph.D., professor of neurobiology at Tel Aviv University and expert in how genes are inherited, how experiences shape genes and remarkably, how some memories of experiences can be passed via genes to offspring. We discuss his research challenging long-held tenets of genetic inheritance and the relevance of those findings to understanding key biological and psychological processes including metabolism, stress and trauma. He describes the history of the scientific exploration of the “heritability of acquired traits” and how epigenetics and RNA biology can account for some of the passage of certain experience-based memories. He discusses the importance of model organisms in scientific research and describes his work on how stressors and memories can be passed through small RNA molecules to multiple generations of offspring in ways that meaningfully affect their behavior. Nature vs. nurture is a commonly debated theme; Dr. Rechavi’s work represents a fundamental shift in our understanding of that debate, as well as genetic inheritance, brain function and evolution.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1 (Athletic Greens): https://athleticgreens.com/hubermanROKA: https://roka.com/hubermanHVMN: https://hvmn.com/hubermanEight Sleep: https://eightsleep.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://www.insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Dr. Oded Rechavi(00:02:08) Sponsors: ROKA, HVMN, Eight Sleep(00:06:04) DNA, RNA, Protein; Somatic vs. Germ Cells(00:14:36) Lamarckian Evolution, Inheritance of Acquired Traits(00:22:54) Paul Kammerer & Toad Morphology(00:28:52) AG1 (Athletic Greens)(00:30:06) James McConnell & Memory Transfer(00:37:31) Weismann Barrier; Epigenetics (00:45:13) Epigenetic Reprogramming; Imprinted Genes (00:50:43) Nature vs. Nurture; Epigenetics & Offspring(00:59:06) Generational Epigenetic Inheritance (01:09:03) Sponsor: InsideTracker(01:10:20) Model Organisms, C. elegans(01:21:50) C. elegans & Inheritance of Acquired Traits, Small RNAs(01:26:02) RNA Interference, C. elegans & Virus Immunity(01:34:13) RNA Amplification, Multi-Generational Effects(01:38:41) Response Duration & Environment(01:47:50) Generational Memory Transmission, RNA(01:59:36) Germ Cells & Behavior; Body Cues(02:04:48) Transmission of Sexual Choice(02:11:22) Fertility & Human Disease; 3-Parent In Vitro Fertilization (IVF); RNA Testing(02:17:56) Deliberate Cold Exposure, Learning & Memory(02:29:26) Zero-Cost Support, Spotify & Apple Reviews, YouTube Feedback, Sponsors, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, I explain the biology of breathing (respiration), how it delivers oxygen and carbon dioxide to the cells and tissues of the body and how is best to breathe—nose versus mouth, fast versus slow, deliberately versus reflexively, etc., depending on your health and performance needs. I discuss the positive benefits of breathing properly for mood, to reduce psychological and physiological stress, to halt sleep apnea, and improve facial aesthetics and immune system function. I also compare what is known about the effects and effectiveness of different breathing techniques, including physiological sighs, box breathing and cyclic hyperventilation, “Wim Hof Method,” Prānāyāma yogic breathing and more. I also describe how to breath to optimize learning, memory and reaction time and I explain breathing at high altitudes, why “overbreathing” is bad, and how to breathe specifically to relieve cramps and hiccups. Breathwork practices are zero-cost and require minimal time yet provide a unique and powerful avenue to improve overall quality of life that is grounded in clear physiology. Anyone interesting in improving their mental and physical health or performance in any endeavor ought to benefit from the information and tools in this episode.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1 (Athletic Greens): https://athleticgreens.com/hubermanHVMN: https://hvmn.com/hubermanThesis: https://takethesis.com/hubermanWHOOP: https://join.whoop.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://www.insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Breathing(00:05:41) Sponsors: HVMN, Thesis, WHOOP(00:09:36) Respiration, Oxygen & Carbon Dioxide(00:18:18) Breathing Mechanics(00:30:08) AG1 (Athletic Greens)(00:31:23) Chemistry of Breathing, Hyperventilation(00:40:35) High Altitudes, Oxygen & Breathing(00:47:16) Tool: Sleep Apnea, Nasal Breathing(00:51:50) Brain Centers & Breathing Rhythm(00:57:23) Brain, Hyperventilation & “Over-breathing”(01:03:53) What is Healthy Breathing?(01:08:26) InsideTracker(01:09:44) Tool: Train Healthy Breathing, Carbon Dioxide Tolerance Test & Box Breathing(01:22:39) Tool: Breathwork & Stress Reduction; Cyclic Sighing(01:33:56) Tool: Physiological Sighing & Exercise Side Cramp(01:39:16) Breathing & Heart Rate Variability(01:46:21) Tool: How to Stop Hiccups(01:51:17) Tool: Stress Management & Cyclic Hyperventilation, “Wim Hof Method”(01:57:11) Deliberate Cold Exposure & Breathing(01:59:54) Tool: Inhales & Learning; Exhales & Movement(02:09:15) Mouth vs. Nasal Breathing, Aesthetics(02:16:19) Zero-Cost Support, Spotify & Apple Reviews, YouTube Feedback, Sponsors, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode 5 of a 6-part special series on fitness, exercise and performance with Andy Galpin, PhD, professor of kinesiology at California State University, Fullerton, he explains how to optimize post-training recovery and how to avoid overtraining in order to better achieve your fitness and exercise goals. He explains the cellular mechanisms of muscle soreness and pain, why adequate recovery is essential for all physical adaptations, and how to enhance recovery using breathwork, thermal, movement, and pressure-based techniques. He describes how overtraining impedes exercise progress and how to assess if you are overreaching or overtraining, by using specific biomarkers and indicators. Like other performance metrics, recovery is a skill that can and should be trained, and that can be learned.

  • This is episode 3 of a 6-part special series on fitness, exercise and performance with Andy Galpin, PhD, professor of kinesiology at California State University, Fullerton. He explains protocols to improve the various kinds of physical endurance: muscular endurance, anerobic capacity, maximum aerobic output, and long duration endurance. He also explains how the body uses different energy sources (carbohydrates, proteins, fats) during rest and exercise. He also explains the mechanisms underlying fat loss and how and why exercise accelerates rates of fat loss. We cover the many concepts related to endurance training and fat loss such as metabolic flexibility, breathwork training for exercise performance and recovery, lactate production and regulation, how to improve blood flow to muscles, anaerobic vs. aerobic metabolism, exercise fatigue, low-carbohydrate diets and fat loss, and how to combine different types of workouts to improve overall endurance. This episode in intended for everyone ranging from novice and recreational exercisers to elite endurance athletes. Anyone wishing to improve their physical health and performance stands to benefit from the information.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1 (Athletic Greens): https://athleticgreens.com/hubermanLevels: https://levels.link/hubermanLMNT: https://drinklmnt.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://www.insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Endurance: Benefits, Mechanics & Breathing (00:07:30) Tool: “Exercise Snacks”(00:14:21) Momentous, Levels, LMNT(00:18:01) Endurance Categories(00:22:16) Fat Loss & Respiration; Carbon Cycles & Storage, Metabolism(00:33:08) Exhalation Rates, Exercise & Fat Loss; Calories(00:41:47) Cardiovascular Adaptations, Cardiac Output & Maximum Heart Rate(00:47:03) AG1 (Athletic Greens)(00:47:55) Excess Post-Exercise Consumption (EPOC); Exercise Intensity & Fat vs. Carbohydrate Energy Utilization(00:59:35) Tool: Training for Fat Loss, Carbohydrate Stores, Liver Glycogen & Fatigue(01:08:01) Metabolic Flexibility, Carbohydrates & Fat; Exercise & Flexible Fuel Utilization (01:16:07) Muscle & Basal Metabolic Rate(01:19:40) InsideTracker(01:20:43) Assessing Metabolic Flexibility, Blood Glucose, Carbohydrates(01:27:48) Caffeine, High-Carbohydrate Meals & Timing, Managing Daily Energy (01:36:42) Cellular Energy (ATP) Production from Carbs; Lactate; Anerobic, Aerobic(01:50:45) Lactate, Energy Production Buffer(01:53:14) Fuel Sources & Exercise; Mitochondria, Oxygen Availability & Lactate(02:02:50) Lactate for Exercise & Cognitive Performance(02:04:33) Energy Production, Waste Management & Endurance Exercise; Insulin(02:12:49) Protein & Fat Utilization for Energy; Exercise & Fat Loss(02:21:20) Protein as Fuel Source, Fire Analogy (02:26:39) Low-Carbohydrate Diet & Performance(02:29:40) Muscular Endurance: Fuel Sources, Training & Capillarization(02:37:30) Tool: Muscular Endurance & Modifiable Variables; Examples(02:45:07) Anerobic Capacity: Fuel Sources, Training & Oxygen Utilization (02:49:23) Tool: Cardiac Output, Heart Rate Zones & Breathing “Gear System”(02:58:10) Tool: Anerobic Capacity & Modifiable Variables; Examples, Nasal Recovery(03:11:45) Tool: “Sugarcane” Endurance Protocol (03:14:02) Anerobic Capacity, Training Progression (03:16:40) Tool: Maximum Aerobic Output, Training & Modifiable Variables(03:21:58) Tool: Long Duration Endurance, Training, Circuits(03:25:13) Long Duration Endurance, Capillarization, Fatigue & Breathwork, Technique(03:29:10) Weekly Combination Training, Metabolic Flexibility & Longevity(03:37:23) Tool: Mixed Endurance Training, Half Marathon Example(03:47:33) Zero-Cost Support, Spotify & Apple Reviews, YouTube Feedback, Sponsors, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, I explain how to design a supplementation protocol to support maximum mental and physical health and performance depending on your specific needs, nutrition, lifestyle and finances. When most people hear about “supplements,” they think they are vitamin supplements, but there are many compounds that are powerful and sold over-the-counter that can enhance our health in performance and that can’t be obtained from foods. First, I discuss “foundational” supplements to support overall health, including water and fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, adaptogens, and prebiotics/probiotics. Then I explain how to use single-ingredient supplements to enhance specific aspects of your physiology, such as aiding sleep, cognitive enhancement, and focus supporting healthy hormone levels (e.g., testosterone, estrogen and growth hormone, thyroid). Finally, I explain when it makes sense to add supplements to your lifestyle and discuss how best to use supplements, including how to determine dosage, sourcing, continuous schedules and cycling, and how to layer different supplements most effectively.
