Amino Acids, BCAA’s, EAA’s, Ketosis, Bonking & More With 41 Time Ironman Triathlete Dr. David Minkoff.

Dr. David Minkoff and I go way back.

I first met this MD and 41-time Ironman triathlon finisher at the Half-Ironman World Championships in Florida six years ago, and interviewed him a few weeks later in the podcast episode “A Peek Into The Life of An Ironman, Natural Medicine Physician.

Then, he helped me with metal detoxification using a metal chelating spray he designed, and I interviewed him about this in the podcast “How Hidden Sources Of Heavy Metals Are Destroying Your Health, And What You Can Do About It.”

He also helped me with my son's exercise-induced asthma, which is now completely eliminated using the techniques Dr. Minkoff introduced me to in the podcast “Why More Kids Are Getting Exercise Induced Asthma, and What You Can Do About It.

Now Dr. Minkoff is back. And he's back to fill us in on amino acids, branched chain amino acids, ketosis, bonking and more! During our discussion, you'll discover:

-The shocking story of how Dr. Minkoff reversed his wife's MS by detoxifying the mercury build-up in her body…

-The exact dosage of amino acids Dr. Minkoff used to completely heal a hamstring injury…

-The important difference between amino acids, protein powder and food-based protein from sources like steak and eggs…

-Why BCAAs and EAAs are much different, and why EAAs are not turned into sugar in the body…

-How to use EAAs during periods of ketosis or carbohydrate restriction…

-How long before a workout to use EAAs and how many to use during a workout…

-How many amino acids you can safely take on a daily basis…

-How to use EAAs for intermittent fasting, controlling carbohydrate cravings and fat loss… 

-And much more!

If you search for “energy supplement” on amazon, you get over 4,000 results. 

4,000!

How can any reasonable human sift through all that and find the ones that work? Or which ones are bogus? 

I did a deep dive into the truth about increasing your energy” in another article. It gives you a framework for understanding how real energy supplements work and why.

But here I want to do something different. 

I want to get practical and tactical with 10 proven ways to boost energy production in your cellular energy factories –– your mitochondria.

We’ll start with the lifestyle and dietary ways to boost your mitochondria and then look at a few powerful supplements.

The Truth About Increasing "Energy"
The Truth About Increasing "Energy"

by Dr. David Minkoff October 24, 2019 5 min read 0 Comments

Your average health food store has an entire section devoted to “energy.”

The products on the shelf, with their fancy logos and specially designed packaging, make grandiose claims about what they will do for your “energy levels.”

But the truth?

Most of them are stimulants in disguise, artificially jacking you up to give you the sensation of energy.

But in the end, they do more harm than good. They increase cortisol, cause dehydration, and deplete you.

Because almost none of them do anything on the biological level that supports your real energy system: your mitochondria and metabolism.

That’s why in this article I want to show you what to look for with any new supplement.... and why.

From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year
From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year

It’s the “most wonderful time of the year” according to Andy Williams. Or should it be the most wonderFULL time of the year? I’m referring to the last 6 weeks of the year which is fraught with one nutritional landmine after another.

Let’s face it, things like pumpkin pie, stovetop stuffing, eggnog, pumpkin-spiced lattes, peanut brittle, homemade fudge, and divinity only make their appearance during this brief window so we might as well gorge ourselves with as much as we can, right?

No wonder the average American gains 2 to 5 pounds (or more) over the holidays. You’d think we were part bear by eating all…the…things before going into several months of hibernation. Unfortunately, this is a major reason people gradually gain weight over the course of years and decades. Gaining weight is easy while losing it is another story.
