Podcast Notes – Huberman Lab – Dr. Rhonda Patrick: Micronutrients for Health & Longevity

Small amounts of acute, relatively short lasting stress are good for you. Modern life is a bit easy in terms of physical challenges, but you can compensate with exercise and heat/cold exposure.

3 key nutrients for the brain and body are:

  1. Sulfurophane
  2. Vitamin d
  3. Omega 3

Generally speaking, you want to look for omega 3 with a high level of EPA.

70% of the US population is deficient in vitamin D.

Incidentally, many nutritionists say its best to take vitamin d3 with vitamin k2.

Sulfurophane can be obtained from brocolli sprout seeds and moringa powder.

The benefits of sauna use are dose dependent. Using a sauna 4-7 times per week reduces a person’s risk of dementia by around 40%

Using a sauna can improve cardiovascular fitness. People who exercise and use the sauna have better or higher levels of cardiovascular fitness than people who exercise and don’t use the sauna.
