We’re excited to bring you Episode 94 of The BibRave Podcast where we invite two of our faves, Cholesterol Dave (aka Dr. Dave Harmon) and ARX Josh (aka Dr. Josh Russell), back to the podcast. In this week’s episode we dive deep into what the medical industry gets wrong about nutrition, specifically as it relates to our diets and supplements.
As runners, we’re always looking to optimize some part of our health, performance, and recovery, and supplements can be a big part of that, whether it’s protein powder or daily vitamins. We first explore WHY it’s so hard to get good information on what’s “good” for us when it comes to food and nutrition. We then take a close look at supplements, how they are regulated (or not), which ones runners should consider taking, and how we can do our own research. Spoiler – if you’ve taken krill/fish oil, vitamin C or D, zinc, or protein powder, you’ll want to listen to this episode! We end with an interesting perspective on how the lack of nutrition education impacts where medical professions focus their knowledge and interventions.
As always, you can find us on social – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! And if you haven’t yet, please leave us a review on the iTunes store! Thanks and enjoy.
