Nutrition & Supplements

In this podcast, we talk about nutrition and the supplements we take. This is just two old guys talking about what works for them. We’re not nutritionists, and we’re not giving advice. For the real science behind nutrition, we both recommend Dr. Rhonda Patrick’s website. There is a link below.

 

And … I suppose we have to say that what works for us may not work for you. Consult with your doctor if you have any doubts.

We list all the vitamins and supplements we’ve tried and actually use. Most of the time, that’s all there is to it. Sometimes we provide an “affiliate” link to a product or service that we make a tiny (!) commission on. We never provide links to anything we haven’t vetted or would otherwise disapprove of. These are all products we use.
