Optimal Nutrition & Supplementation for Fitness – Huberman – Galpin

If you’re into nutrition, exercise performance, and recovery, then you should check out this podcast with Dr. Andrew Huberman and Dr. Andy Galpin! They cover a ton of topics, from hydration and electrolytes to caffeine and supplements. They touch on Creatine, protein and a ton more. Plus, they dive into the science behind it all and explain it in a way that’s easy to understand. Sometimes it’s a bit too “sciency” for me but I still take it all in because there’s a ton of insight and actionable info.

The timestamps below make it easy to find what you’re interested in. Whether you’re an athlete or just trying to live your best life, this is a good one. Yes, it can get a bit technical, but the hosts make it accessible to everyone. Zero cost professional info, so who can complain!? You’ll learn some really cool stuff, like how to load up on carbs before a monster workout. Check it out and optimize your health and performance!
