Episode Summary:

With thousands of supplements to choose from, Dr. Dan explains what to look for in order to find science-based products that can support human health.


Principles For Picking Out a Science-Based Supplement:

  • Avoid Pixie-dusting/Witches Brew Formulations 
  • Steer Clear of Proprietary Blends that don’t give ingredient amounts
  • Choose ingredients that are standardized to bioactive compounds
  • Look for technology in formulations that make the ingredients more bioavailable
  • Buy supplements where clinical studies have been run on the finished product and not just an individual ingredient in the product
  • Choose supplements that have certifications behind it (e.g. NSF Sport, Informed Choice, Certified Organic, etc.)
  • Look for supplements where there is transparency on how the formulation is produced and where the ingredients are from
  • Avoid supplements with panacea-like claims

    Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
