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 always on the look out for performance enhancing substances.
Due to Joe’s UFC and stand up comedy commitments, Joe has to travel a great deal round the USA. This explains his collection of multivitamin supplement, that is offered in handy little packets, containing a range of different vitamins, minerals and fish oil. This is a time saver, simply because you don’t must start 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, it is possible to skip to 1:02:40 where they talk about the value of fish oils, and how it’s more efficient than having your 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 within his latest podcast with Rhonda Patrick).
If you discover capsules more convenient (when i do), it can be purchased in two capsulated versions; one with beef gelatine capsules, and another with fish derived capsules (ideal for pescetarians). A 2 capsule serving contains 1,200mg omega-3s, including 600mg EPA & 400mg DHA.
Since Joe was young, he trained as a taekwondo fighter, competing nationally. Despite he finished fighting competitively, he still trains hard. This leads to numerous deterioration on the joints, and thus Joe uses glucosamine & chondroitin.
Nowadays the phrase “nootropics” is common place, plus it seems most people are familiar with the concept of Joe Rogan Supplements. However, as with a lot of things, Joe was in front of the curve. One of the first (if not the first) he took was one called Neuro1. The product came into being after NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski started losing his memory, after a 16 year career. Looking for solutions, Bill brought together doctors, scientists, and nutritionists to produce a solution which adphxz his cognitive decline.
Given Joe’s involvement at Onnit, and his awesome prior use 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 pill form and sachet form. Although he notes that all the supplements ingredients could be bought separately at a discount, it could just require more time and energy.
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 a break occurs, then they’re later asked questions that will require them to recall the data these people were earlier provided. Now, considering the fact that Onnit sponsored the study, we must use appropriate scepticism in interpreting their good results; but thought it interesting to mention nonetheless.
