In today’s episode Matt chats with Dr. Jack Kruse, a respected neurosurgeon and CEO of Kruse Longevity Center. The Kruse Longevity Center is a health and wellness establishment which helps their patients avoid the healthcare burdens people typically encounter as they age.
“Instead of working with the paleo movement, I decided I was going to teach them a lesson [about circadian biology].” -Dr. Jack Kruse
Matt and Dr. Jack Kruse delve into the lightbulb moment he experienced regarding leptin and how he impacted the paleo community through circadian biology. Dr. Kruse briefly discusses evolutionary biology in terms of the mitochondria, factor x, cold thermogenesis, and the brain gut. During a brief overview of evolutionary biology he shares why he loves Mexico so much! The conversation circles back to the importance of cold thermogenesis, the brain gut and Dr. Jack’s research on these concepts throughout the past 15 years. Later, they discuss why mammals cannot live without DHA from Omega-3. Take a seat, relax, and get ready to learn more through Matt’s chat with Dr. Jack Kruse!
