*CAUTION - Explicit Language in this episode*Confused about supplements? Struggle to understand nutrition science? Constantly bombarded by conflicting headlines about which diet is better than another? How do we make sense of all this information when the noise-signal ratio is so disproportionate?Today I have the pleasure of speaking with Kamal Patel who is the co-founder and director of Examine.com. The world’s largest unbiased, internet site that peer reviews academic literature on diet, supplements and nutrition knowledge to give the most uncoerced information you can find anywhere. A site that I have personally used during my masters, recommended and supported throughout my nutrition journey.Kamal holds two master’s degrees from Johns Hopkins University, in business and in public health, he’s published peer-reviewed articles on vitamin D and calcium, as well as on a variety of clinical research topics. He’s also been involved in research on fructose and liver health, on nutrition in low-income areas, and on mindfulness meditation.There are SO MANY things we talk about in this pod that I’ve decided to split it up into 2 parts. The amount of information we talk about is quite overwhelming to listen to, but trust me it’s worth a good listen and there are so many insights I picked up on from Kamals wealth of knowledge: Circadian ZeitgebersNon diet Paleolithic perspectiveHow misinformation and bias starts from the Research labsMultivitamins, fish oil, vitamin DSupplements and Lifestyle for Stress, Sleep, Anxiety and Nootropics and AdaptogensThe Placebo effectBrain and Cognitive enhancing supplements, green tea, choline, berries, fish oilSupplements for Vegans - B12, choline, creatine, carnosine, fatty acidsCollagen for arthritis and skinContaminants in supplementsHow to choose supplementsThe precautionary principle with supplementationImmunonutritionCorona Virus supplements - Zinc, elderberry, Vitamin D, Garlic, Vitamin CHealth tracking, wearable devices and investigationsHow often research makes Kamal change his mindDo check out The Doctor's Kitchen website for full show notes and social media links for this episode
