  • #075 Intestinal Permeability: the Bacterial link to Aging, Brain Barrier Dysfunction & Metabolic Disorder
    The intestinal barrier serves as a gatekeeper to the human body. The loss of the health and integrity of this barrier influences multiple aspects of human health – including cardiometabolic function, neurological health, behavior, and more – in surprising and unexpected ways. One of these ways involves lipopolysaccharide, or LPS, a bacterial product that arises in the intestine, and its interaction with far distal tissues and organs via the induction of immune mediators. Dr. Rhonda Patrick was the keynote speaker for the Metabolic Health Summit, held May 5 – 8, 2022, in Santa Barbara, California. Her presentation described the role that intestinal permeability and bacterial products play in aging, inflammation, and chronic disease. Show notes and video CHAPTERS: 06:04 - Introduction 08:12 - Atherosclerosis 13:49 - Brain 16:07 - Circulating LPS and behavior 19:05 - Toll-like receptors and inflammation 24:00 - Factors that affect intestinal permeability 30:10 - Alcohol 32:07 - Gluten 35:21 - Butyrate and dietary fiber 37:48 - Dietary fat 42:21 - Biomarkers of intestinal permeability 43:11 - Omega-3 fatty acids 50:02 - Q&A LEARN MORE: Coinciding with this release, you can now find a variety of deep resources on the FoundMyFitness website for all of the topics covered in this episode.

  • #073 Sauna Benefits Deep Dive and Optimal Use with Dr. Rhonda Patrick & MedCram
    This episode features a discussion with MedCram co-founder Kyle Allred on the effects of sauna. I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Kyle on all things sauna science and we're posting that discussion for you here. As an exercise mimetic, sauna use has anti-inflammatory, mood-elevating, and detoxifying properties that research increasingly shows may deliver cardiovascular and brain benefits. The science of sauna use has been a research interest of mine for many years and this discussion is by far one of the most well-rounded discussions I've had on the subject. Thanks to Kyle and MedCram for having me for his interview. In this episode, we'll discuss: 00:00:00 - Introduction 00:02:46 - Summary of sauna benefits 00:10:47 - Heat as an aerobic exercise mimetic 00:14:45 - Effects of heat acclimation on endurance 00:17:37 - Why heat shock proteins may protect against dementia 00:23:20 - The stress-relieving effects of sauna use (personal anecdote) 00:27:43 - Investigating sauna for depression 00:30:32 - Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and endorphins response 00:34:51 - Cellular repair mechanisms elicited by sauna use 00:40:05 - Prevention of muscle atrophy 00:42:45 - Detoxification of heavy metals  00:44:50 - Heart rate variability, a measure of stress resilience 00:46:40 - The synergy of sauna use and exercise 00:52:13 - Cross-cultural and historical prevalence of heat therapy 00:56:12 - Infrared sauna vs. traditional saunas 00:58:31 - Rhonda's personal sauna protocol: duration, temperature, humidity, and frequency 01:03:22 - How jacuzzi, hot baths, and hot showers compare to sauna use 01:06:19 - Hydration, cold therapy, and sauna safety  01:11:18 - Who should not use saunas? 01:15:21 - Does sauna use increase blood sugar levels? 01:17:16 - Limitations of current sauna research and hopes for future research MedCram is a YouTube channel created by Kyle Allred, PA-C and Roger Sehuelt, MD, master educators of health and medical science. Their videos cover important topics such as immunity, metabolism, and vitamin D in an authoritative, but approachable way.
