At 50 years of age, Joe Rogan is in better physical shape than many 30 year olds. And it’s not simply his physique that’s impressive, he’s also managing to stay mentally sharp too. Whether he’s injecting testosterone, devouring elk meat or hulking down vegetable smoothies, Joe is definitely on the consider performance enhancing substances.
Due to Joe’s UFC and fully stand up comedy commitments, Joe needs to travel a great deal round the USA. This explains his choice of multivitamin supplement, which can be offered in handy little packets, containing a range of different vitamins, minerals and fish oil. It is a time saver, because you don’t must open up x a few different vitamin tubs to allocate your daily ration.
Joe values omega-3 fish oils highly, and ensures he’s taking them regularly. In the same Tom Papa podcast above, you are able to skip to 1:02:40 where they talk about the value of fish oils, and how it’s more efficient than getting the omega-3s from flax-seed or hemp oil.
Based on Joe’s Instagram post, his YouTube tour of his vitamin cupboard, and the latest Dr Rhonda Patrick podcast, Joe currently takes Carlson’s Super Omega-3 fish oil in liquid form. He currently takes 3 tablespoons daily (he mentions the dosage in his latest podcast with Rhonda Patrick).
If you discover capsules more convenient (because i do), it can be purchased in two capsulated versions; one with beef gelatine capsules, and the other with fish derived capsules (appropriate for pescetarians). A 2 capsule serving contains 1,200mg omega-3s, including 600mg EPA & 400mg DHA.
Since Joe was young, he trained as being a taekwondo fighter, competing nationally. Even after he finished fighting competitively, he still trains hard. This leads to many deterioration on the joints, and therefore Joe uses glucosamine & chondroitin.
Today the term “nootropics” is normal place, plus it seems so many people are familiar with the concept of Joe Rogan Supplements. However, similar to several things, Joe was in front of the curve. One of the primary (if not the initial) he took was one called Neuro1. The merchandise came about after NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski started losing his memory, following a 16 year career. Looking for solutions, Bill brought together doctors, scientists, and nutritionists to create a solution which adphxz his cognitive decline.
Given Joe’s involvement at Onnit, and his awesome prior usage of Neuro1, I don’t think it’s a stretch to visualize that Onnit’s flagship product Alpha Brain took some “inspiration” from Neuro1.
Today, Joe’s visit nootropic is Alpha Brain, in both pill form and sachet form. Although he notes that most the supplements ingredients could be bought separately at a lower price, it might just require more effort and time.
Interestingly, Onnit did sponsor a 63 person study that published results showing that Alpha Brain improved “delayed memory recall” vs a placebo. Specifically that’s where participants are told/shown something, then this break occurs, then they’re later asked questions that needs them to recall the information these were earlier provided. Now, considering the fact that Onnit sponsored the research, we need to use appropriate scepticism in interpreting their positive results; but thought it interesting to bring up nonetheless.
