Listener Q&A [38:00]:
As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Brock Armstrong, the Podcast Sidekick.
Why You Get Constipated & What To Do About It
Kelly says: She has been taking probiotics for about 6 months now and she still has major stomach issues. Every vegetable that she eats just ferments in her stomach without digesting and “going through”. She even tried taking laxatives to push things along with no luck. Is she taking too much? What probiotics should she be taking?
How To Get By On Less Sleep
Bruno says: He usually gets about 8 hours of sleep per night and feels great but he is wondering if it is possible to get less sleep (like 6 hours per night) and still feel as good as he does now? Are there any special supplements, food or protocols that will help him feel this good but on less sleep?
How To Use SARMs MK-677 and RAD-140
Grizzell says: She is wondering is the SARMs MK-677 and RAD-140 would be useful for her 87-year-old father? How could they benefit an older man? She is also curious if they could help her.
Wim Hof vs. Buteyko
Bryan says: Could you compare Wim Hof's breathing method to the Buteyko method (as described by Patrick Mckeown)? Which do you prefer and which is best for long term gains for health and life?
