By Dr. Jesse Chappus & Marni Wasserman
Dave Asprey is the creator of the widely popular Bulletproof Coffee, host of the #1 health podcast, Bulletproof Radio, and author of the New York Times bestselling books, The Bulletproof Diet and Head Strong. In this episode, we discuss: When Dave was 26 he was scared his brain would never work again Mitochondria have ultimate power over us biologically Muffin top in the brain Stop eating fried foods... even foods fried in coconut oil The vast majority of the plant kingdom is toxic for us to eat Plant lectins can lead to chronic inflammation Choose white rice over brown The vast majority of plant proteins are not particularly compatible with us Air frying and barbecuing - should you cook using these methods? Fat is damaged by light, heat, and air Avoid liquid smoke and stick with smoked salts What are polyphenols? Salt is important for your health and performance Stressed, working hard? You need more salt Tea, coffee, and spices have the highest concentration of polyphenols per gram If you store water when you eat salt, you are lacking potassium and magnesium How to properly care for your quality spices Rejected coffee is being sent to the US Fats helps you absorb polyphenols Junk light is the same as junk food What's even better than blue blocking glasses? Is the light coming from a salt lamp legit? Junk light impacts your skin too The one minute cold shower challenge Related links: Listen to Dave Asprey previously on TUHP (episode #61) Dave Asprey - Head Strong (book)* Dave Asprey's website (Bulletproof) Bulletproof Radio (Dave's podcast) Follow Dave on Instagram and Facebook Dave Asprey - The Bulletproof Diet (book)* Dave Asprey - Bulletproof: The Cookbook (book)* The Bulletproof Diet Roadmap Bulletproof Coconut Charcoal* Bulletproof Unfair Advantage* Bulletproof KetoPrime Bulletproof Forbose Bulletproof Coffee* Bulletproof Swiss Water Decaf Coffee* Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil* Bulletproof Polyphenomenal Bulletproof Eye Armor* Bulletproof Vibe Beekeeper's Naturals - B.LXR Brain Fuel Tim Ferriss - The 4 Hour Body (book)* Rob Faigin - Natural Hormonal Enhancement (book)* TrueDark glasses: Twilight and Daywalker box set* Red LED light bulbs* f.lux TrueDark Dots 40 Years of Zen Show sponsors: Sunwarrior <== 10% off all Sunwarrior products (free shipping over $100)* CoreChair <== Apply the code tuhpcc at checkout for your listener discount (free shipping in North America)* Thrive Market <== As a new customer you get a free 30-day membership, 25% off your first order, and free shipping (US only)* Note: Links marked with an asterisk (*) are affiliate links.
