My guest on today's podcast is an absolute phenom and was first introduced to me by Dr. Joseph Mercola, one of the most popular guys I've ever had on my podcast
He's just 30 years old. He has run a 2:30 marathon and can deadlift 450 pounds. And he's one smart cookie. His name is Tyler LeBaron, and he is the Founder and Executive Director of the science-based nonprofit Molecular Hydrogen Foundation/Institute.
His background is in biochemistry, he interned at Nagoya University in the department of Neurogenetics to research the molecular mechanisms of hydrogen gas on cell signaling pathways, he is a director of the International Hydrogen Standards Association (IHSA) and the International Molecular Hydrogen Association (IMHA), he speaks at Medical conferences across the USA for physicians, and at academic biomedical hydrogen symposia and conferences around the world. He is also a member of the Academic Committee of Taishan Institute for Hydrogen Biomedical Research. He collaborates with researchers at home and abroad, and helps advance the education, research, and awareness of hydrogen as a therapeutic medical gas. He has a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry, and has studied Physiology, Advanced Exercise Physiology, Nutritional Biochemistry, Molecular Cell Biology, Quantitative Chemical Analysis, Biology Analysis Techniques. His research spans the gamut and includes:
-Therapeutic effects of hydrogen gas -Free Radical Biology and Medicine -Therapeutic effects of electrolyzed reduced water -Therapeutic effects of exercise for disease prevention and treatment -Biological effects of inorganic nitrates -Biological and chemical properties of creatine -Vitamins, minerals and nutraceuticals -Supplements and ergogenic aids -Health, longevity and wellness -Physiology, biochemistry and organic chemistry
During our discussion, you'll discover: -What Tyler's training looks like to be able to lift heavy and also run as fast as you run in an endurance sport... -Whether Tyler follows any special diet or takes any special supplements... -How hydrogenated water is far different than regular water... -The way that hydrogen gas dissolved in water actually affects your cells... -Whether hydrogenated water blunts the hormetic response to exercise and why it may be one of the few antioxidants one could potentially use in conjunction with hard exercise... -How hydrogenated water can act as an exercise mimetic, just like "exercise in a pill"... -The effects of hydrogenated water on exercise performance and also on digestive health... -The fascinating anti-allergenic and anti-exercise-induced asthma effects of hydrogenated water... -Why most people haven't heard of molecular hydrogen... -The link between molecular hydrogen and so-called "healing waters"... -How much hydrogen water you actually need to drink to get the benefits... -Where can people get molecular hydrogen?
