Health, Supplements, And Digital Addiction W/ Evan DeMarco

“Make your life about the experience, about the journey.”
— Evan DeMarco

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Evan DeMarco. Evan is a sports medicine and nutrition expert, a published author, a public speaker, and a frequent guest on television, radio, and digital platforms. He is also a successful serial entrepreneur whose interest in diet, health, and supplements began as an athlete and consumer, and led him to create a supplement called Alpha Omega.

Now, in order to do that, he actually went back to school, studied bio- and organic chemistry, and dove deep into everything from prenatal supplements to fat-soluble vitamins.

And, as you folks can imagine – you know me – I geeked out hard on this episode, and I really enjoyed learning all about all of these things. It’s not every day that I get to talk to a biochemist or an organic chemist – and I get to talk to both today.

So we learn a lot in this episode, for example about some of the supplements that you might want to consider because of some of the dietary imbalances and deficiencies that we have in our modern diet and lifestyle. We also talk – of course – about one of my favorite subjects which is digital addiction, and what it is doing to our brains. The rest of the things we talked about, well, I’ll leave it to you folks to discover!

But I’ll tell you this: I’m sure you’re going to enjoy the episode, because I certainly did!

“The proof is in the blood.”
“Our bodies are not designed to do one thing every day forever, except move.”
“One of the things that I found that is great for our brains, is to make sure that the last thing that we do before we go to bed and the first thing we do when we wake up is to not look at our cell phones.”
“Read as much as you can; One of the biggest things to keeping your brain healthy is reading.”
