Angie says @ 00:33:41
She gets cold sores and is wondering if taking a broad spectrum amino acid supplement with L-arginine would inhibit the effectiveness of the L-lysine… or, moreover, what would use suggest for supplementation to reduce cold sores.
Daniela says @ 00:39:40
Is wondering if human weight loses strategies would work for animals? Specifically her dog. Also, she can't make it to the Superhuman Event in March and is wondering if there are any other events that you would suggest or recommend to your listeners.
~ For dog food I recommend Primal Pet Foods. My twitter feed tells what I'm attending and also check out: Pacific Elite Fitness calendar, PaleoFX, Ancestral Health Symposium, Bulletproof Biohacking Conference.
Eliot says @ 00:55:01
He was reading about using sodium bicarbonate. He understands it can cause some major GI issues. but what about using it with the magnesium oil as a trans-dermal supplement (dissolving some baking soda and rubbing on)? Would that work? Is it legal? Would it have any effect on longer distances (the studies I have seen are shorter/middle distance stuff)? (He understands the energy system for longer distance racing is different – there may be less lactic acid build up, but assumes that in a 3hr marathon there would be some benefit)
Jack says @ 01:05:21
He is a 15 year old soccer player and he has a “calf burn” in his anterior and posterior calf muscles. It only happens during games – not practice or conditioning. When it flairs up, it hurts/burns like fire every time he steps. The pain is a 6 out of 9 (worse in the morning). He occasionally wears knee bands but not consistently. Soccer season is almost here and he is worried about his calves.
~ In my response to Jack, I recommend the rumble roller and also the muscletrac.
Jenna says @ 01:11:14
She is gearing up for Ironman and is wondering if she could use Maple Syrup for training and racing. It tastes so good… she is Canadian.
~ In my response I mention the Superhuman Coach Pros and Cons of Organic Maple Syrup.
Paula says @ 01:17:47
She is looking for more information regarding Phenocane especially in relation to its effect on the SI Joint.
