Could Sirtuins Increase Your Life & Slow Down The Aging Process?
Aging. It's a process in life that we're all going through- right from the second we're born. Although aging isn't actually a disease, it does bring many risks. Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, and cancer are just a few examples.  But what if everything we think we know about aging is about to change?  A few radical yet innovative scientists propose that aging may not be as inevitable as we once thought. Dr. David Sinclair is a Harvard Professor who is best known for his research on aging and lifespan extension. In 2014, he nabbed the title for one of the 100 "most influential people in the world" by TIME magazine. In a recent episode of The Darin Olien Show, we started discussing redefining the process of aging with a massive spotlight on the roles of sirtuins, resveratrol, and NAD+. What Are Sirtuins? Since the early 1990s, scientists have managed to pinpoint at least one so-called "Longevity gene." These age-controlling genes are present in almost every single lifeform on the planet. One group of these genes is known as sirtuins.  Sirtuins are protein enzymes that regulate various cellular functions. These functions include aging, inflammation, detoxification, stress resistance, metabolism, sleep cycles, and mitochondrial biogenesis (DNA). There are several sirtuins that an organism can have, ranging from SIRT-1 through to SIRT-7. For example, bacteria have one, yeasts have five, and humans have seven.  "Without them, the body doesn't really know how to take care of themselves. That includes things like digest food well, process it, give the body energy, heal itself, even memory is controlled by these sirtuins."  Intermittent Fasting & Sirtuins Fad diets are everywhere. But one that seems to have stuck, and is doing us some good, is intermittent fasting. For a while now, scientists have known that restricting your calorie intake can slow the aging process. This is because calorie restriction stimulates sirtuin activity. Fasting is a type of biological stress for our bodies. "If we skip a meal or two, or even three, we know we're not going to run out of food. But our bodies don't know that," says David. "They've evolved to panic when we're not getting enough food, and they turn on these defenses," which in the short term can work wonders on the body.  One of the sirtuins' top functions is autophagy. Think of autophagy as the process of cellular housekeeping. It's the body's way of cleaning out damaged cells to regenerate newer, healthier cells. During starvation, autophagy keeps the body going by using up and breaking down old, cellular junk to keep all the body's necessary processes going.  Regarding sirtuins, "They're quite bossy," David chuckles. "They tell other proteins what to do. They don't do the work themselves." As they begin clearing out cellular waste, they leave in its wake a trail of health benefits. For example: Significantly improve mental focus and concentration Boost and support the body's "good" inflammation response Remove toxic proteins from the cells linked to neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, and maintain healthy cholesterol levels While this all sounds like some kind of miracle, you have to remember that just skipping a few meals won't permanently help your sirtuin. In fact, its activity declines by about 60% as you age.  So, what can we do to increase our sirtuin activity? Resveratrol Sparks Sirtuins Studies are starting to show that your sirtuin levels will also increase when you boost your resveratrol intake. Resveratrol is part of a group of compounds called polyphenols, which are thought to act similarly to antioxidants.  "It is almost the gasoline or the fuel source for the sirtuins," David says. But, "it's hard to get a lot of resveratrol into the body; it's very insoluble." While you can get a tiny amount from a glass or two of red wine, it still isn’t enough.

Stan Efferding on Fixing Digestive Issues and Optimizing Your Gut
If you’re a regular here, you know the importance of diet. Macros for body composition, micros for general health, fiber and protein for satiety, yadda yadda yadda . . . But many people forget all about their gut and their diet’s role in gut health. Many people quietly (or loudly . . .) suffer from gastric distress without a clear path to fix their digestive issues. Many people don’t even draw the connection between their digestive system’s performance and their health. The two are tightly intertwined. Scientists have discovered that a healthy bacterial habitat in the gut (microbiome) is a crucial defense against many gastrointestinal diseases, such as inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) and disease (IBD), as well as mood disorder, brain dysfunction, stress, anxiety, depression, and even autism. So, it’s not a stretch to say that the state of your gut will determine much of the quality of your life. In this episode, I chat with Stan Efferding all about optimizing gut health through dietary tweaks to alleviate gastric distress and improve health and performance. In case you’re not familiar with Stan, he’s held two all-time raw world powerlifting records and is colloquially known as the “world's strongest bodybuilder.” He’s not all brawn, though. He’s also an entrepreneur who’s built multiple multi-million dollar businesses, including his own Vertical Diet program and meal prep service. In our conversation, Stan and I discuss . . . * The benefits of a low-FODMAP diet * Why fermented foods are easier to digest * Collagen protein versus bone broth * Meal prep services and the “vertical diet” * The relation of bowel movements to digestive health * His diet compliance hacks * Why red meat rocks and shouldn’t be eliminated * The importance of carbs for performance and why you shouldn’t go keto * And more . . . So, if you want to learn how you can tweak your diet to improve your digestive health, give this podcast a listen! 6:13 - Can you go into detail about your meal prep company? 8:54 - What is a low-FODMAP diet? 26:39 - Whats the name of your meal prep company? 28:55 - Why do you use bone broth? 35:05 - Whats the connection between how you poop and how healthy you eat? 38:05 - Why is greek yogurt easily digestible? 55:59 - What are some of your diet compliance strategies or tips and tricks? 1:19:21 - Where can people find you and your work?
