Shawn Wells is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Sports Nutritionist and has his Masters of Public Health in Nutritional Biochemistry. He has been dubbed the “World’s Greatest Formulator” of dietary supplements, so this guy knows a lot about a lot. Today he talks with us about supplements and about mushrooms (not the psychedelic kind.) Shawn goes over with us the immune boosting components of mushrooms, brain protective benefits, and which products to buy. Some of the types of mushrooms we discuss today are:
- Turkey Tail
- Lion’s Mane
Mushrooms have so many benefits and we are starting to see supplements popping up everywhere. When looking for a good quality supplement, knowing how to read the label is extremely important. Shawn tells us what to stray away from as well we talk about what active ingredients in mushrooms that are beneficial.
5 Food Rules to Break
Cassie Bjork is a #1 International Best Selling author, Registered Dietitian, Speaker, and one of our favorite people to talk all things health with.
Today she covers some of the common food rules that are outdated and just need to be stopped. Some of these are: counting calories, low-fat diets, over-exercising, etc. Inflammation in the body is one of the main reasons people cannot lose weight. As a society, we are all over-stressed and over-worked. Adding the stress of a strict diet does not help, at all! Cassie talks to us about simplifying our diet and exercise regimes to get back to basics and get healthy.
