In this episode of the Brawn Body Podcast, I review the effects of sleep deprivation, the hidden consequences of ibuprofen, my new favorite exercise, and more! Below are some brief notes on each section


Sleep Deprivation

  • WE NEED SLEEP.

  • Brain fog. Mental health. It’s destroying our country

  • Study: Soldiers: 7 hrs sleep = 98% accuracy

  • 6 hrs - 50%

  • 5 hrs - 38%

  • <5 - 10%

  • Insulin (in response to meal) → serotonin storage in brain → melatonin production/release

  • What do we remember about melatonin from last week’s neuroscience episode?

Ibuprofen

  • NSAID

  • OTC

  • Linked with declining male reproductive health

  • The study shows that ibuprofen use results in selective transcriptional repression of endocrine cells in the human testis. This repression results in the elevation of the stimulatory pituitary hormones, resulting in a state of compensated hypogonadism, a disorder associated with adverse reproductive and physical health disorders.”

  • Do we have issues of men not being “man enough” in the country?

  • ED, medical tx, etc… none of this existed 40 years ago!

  • My personal alternative - Turmeric. Superfood, anti-inflammatory, etc.

My new favorite exercise

  • Turkish Get-Up

  • Full body strength and mobility simultaneously

  • CHALLENGING for the core

  • FUNCTION

  • SLOW
