Ben Greenfield Life

I've been interviewed a few times on the outstanding Minimalists podcast with Joshua Millburn and his partner in crime Ryan Nicodemus, who together founded The Minimalists. This time it was I who put one of them on the hot seat for my podcast, and was able to speak with Joshua about his journey into the minimalism mindset, how we sometimes go about it the wrong way, the four stages of hoarding, and much more. At first glance, people might think the point of minimalism is only to get rid of material possessions: Eliminating. Jettisoning. Extracting. Detaching. Decluttering....

Having been a consumer of a low carb or ketogenic diet since I was about 17 years old (so yeah, that's 23 years), I've covered ketones plenty in past podcasts (see resources section of shownotes for articles and podcasts).

But things have recently become a bit more cutting-edge and arguably exciting in the ever-evolving realm of ketones, particularly the exogenous ketones one can consume to rapidly shift themselves into a state of safe, appetite satiated, performance dominating, inflammation crushing ketosis, and so it's high time I gave you an update on these magical molecules. My guest on this podcast, Michael Brandt, is co-founder and CEO of Health Via Modern Nutrition (hvmn.com). 

H.V.M.N. launched the world’s first ketone ester in 2017, secured a $6MM contract with US Special Operations Command, and has worked with elite athletes and researchers covering areas from athletic performance, to recovery, to metabolic health and longevity. H.V.M.N. recently announced their second generation of ketones, Ketone-IQ™ which is the most cost-effective way to get into 1.0mmol+ levels of blood ketones. Ketone-IQ™ has a waitlist of 33k+ people.

Michael believes ketones are a nutritional primitive, a tool for everyone’s toolkit, akin to Omega-3, caffeine, or CBD, and during our discussion, you'll discover:

-Exogenous ketones defined, and the basic mechanism of action behind them...

-Limiting factors in the body's ability to utilize ketones...

-What is Ketone IQ from a biological standpoint...

-How HVMN has dramatically cost costs of producing a ketone ester...

-The average length of time of peak productivity after a Ketone IQ serving...

-The impact of elevated ketone levels on sleep...

-Effects of ketone esters on recovery...

-Compounds that stack well with ketones...

-Effects of ketones on Alzheimers progression...

-Ben's tips on introducing ketones into your lifestyle...

And much more!
