In this episode, you will learn...

  • Over-the-counter drugs such as NSAIDs, often used in sports and fitness, can carry significant risks including cardiovascular disease, liver damage, stomach ulcers, and a decrease in neuroplasticity. 
  • Photobiomodulation devices can provide a safer and more effective alternative to pharmaceuticals for enhancing athletic performance and recovery, reducing inflammation, and improving metabolic health.
  • Regular, deep sleep is vital in the recovery process and can protect the brain from the buildup of waste materials. Understanding the biochemical and physiological processes behind performance and recovery can help identify and address the root causes of issues. 
  • Nitric oxide plays a critical role in the body, helping with blood vessel dilation and delivering more blood to muscles. However, as people age, the production of nitric oxide decreases, making it important to find ways to stimulate its production. 
  • Chronic inflammation is highly damaging to the body, impacting everything from muscle performance to cardiovascular health.
