Joe Rogan Shines A Light On Promising Stem Cell Therapy

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 2 min read 2 views

Earlier this year, Joe Rogan had a podcast with Mel Gibson and Dr. Neil Riordan, where they talked about a type of stem cell therapy that was done in Panama to Mel Gibson’s 92 year old dad, and as Mel reports, his father had quite miraculous results from this.

Apparently, this particular form of stem cell treatment is not allowed to be performed in the United States, and is allowed just in a few countries, for limited treatments.

I had heard of this from a few different people recently and finally got around to listening to the podcast, after one of the members at my gym just said he got a stem cell injection, and linked to the video as an answer to a question I had.

Mel Gibson’s Father’s Results

The results that Mel listed off were quite amazing. In his words:

He’s almost 100 years old, and from pretty bad shape, now it’s like he’s had like a new lease on life.

  • His hip pain went away and he’s walking again.
  • His kidneys were good
  • His heart healed a prolapsed valve
  • His cognitive powers improved
  • His eyesight improved
  • And other stuff improved that he would hate me to talk about

As a little background, apparently, he had taken his 92 year old father in to get checked out for some issues, and he had almost too many to list, and the doctors basically said he is in poor shape, and needs procedures done ASAP. Mel was opposed to the idea of his father having a hip replacement at that age.

Along with that, Mel also had a few stem cell treatments, and he said it really helped his shoulder that was giving him lots of trouble.

According to Dr. Riordan, the most effective type of stem cell is called Mesenchymal stem cells, and is extracted from umbilical cords. There are other forms that are being used in the United States, such as ones extracted from bone marrow, which he says can be effective, but the Mesenchymal ones are the most effective in his experience.

They weren’t sure if or when this may be approved for use in the United States.

Athletic Greens First Impressions

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 3 min read 0 views

Here is a quick video I shot with my first impressions, and the transcript is below if you’d rather read.

So I just tried out Athletic Greens. I’ve had this for a while and I’ve been wanting to try it, I really like green drinks.

The thing that stands out to me is that this is pretty tasty. It tastes like a green drink. So if you are familiar with that kind of supplement, you know, it’s hard to make one of these taste awesome, but to me it does not taste artificial at all, it tastes healthy actually.

It just really has that taste like it’s natural, it doesn’t have any sort of weird artificial flavor to it. I just feel like I’m putting something good into my body.

As you can see, there is a ton of stuff on the label, really too much to list for ingredients… If you want to look at it, there’s the ingredients in the video, but it’s not really listed like normal ingredient panels you typically see.

It’s dividing the ingredients into different sections like probiotics, digestive enzyme and super mushroom complex, nutrient dense natural extracts, and alkaline nutrient dense. Sounds good to me!

But yeah, it’s got a good flavor, there are 30 servings per pack. There’s the instructions. Liking it so far. Good taste. I’ll take a look at the website now to see what else they have on there.

Oh also, it’s funny, I got this recently too, and it kind of reminds me of this, it’s like a similar package. Maybe later I’ll do a comparison with IdealRaw Organic Greens Blends. It’s similar. This has a more straightforward list of ingredients, both are good. But yeah, I’m liking it so far.

Here’s their website. I noticed right away, Tim Ferris gave a recommendation, and he seems like quite the scientist on health and all that stuff, so that was pretty cool. Then here it talks a little bit more.

  • The most nutrient dense wholefood supplement available.
  • 11 supplements in a single serving
  • multivitamins, multi-minerals, antioxidants
  • support for blood sugar
  • green superfood
  • adaptogen
  • neural support
  • detox
  • digestive enzymes
  • prebiotics, and probiotics

So you quite a lot of different stuff.

Tim Ferris Loves Athletic Greens

He seems to rave about it. If he could only use one supplement, what would it be? And he says, “Athletic Greens.” Yeah, and so, a little more about it here. I guess, what you spend if you bought all that separately. It does taste good, I must say, I like the taste. Don’t buy it if you basically are already getting all the nutrients that you need.

So the cost is $97 if you buy one, or $77 a month if you get it in a subscription. It looks like a tiny bit less if you get two per month. Also, it is available on Amazon, and it is available for Prime members. $92 per pouch on Amazon. I’ll put this link below for those of you who would rather shop Amazon than the regular site:

Get Athletic Greens on Amazon HERE

All right, so let me show you how it mixes up. It comes with a scoop. The serving says “one heaped tablespoon”. I am assuming the scoop is approximately that. I haven’t measured it. But this is the scoop that comes with it, so that’s what I’ll use. Looks around a heaping tablespoon.

Then it says, “Mix with 200 to 300 milliliters of water”, which is roughly 6-8 ounces. Somewhere around there. It mixes pretty well. Not completely clump-free. But I just mix it with a spoon like you can see in the video, and just look in the bottom, see if there’s any down there.

That’s about how it mixes. You could use a shaker cup or whatever if you want. There’s a couple of small clumps, not too bad, and looks pretty tasty, I think. So there you go, Athletic Greens!

BOTTOM LINE: I like it a lot! Check out Athletic Greens at their Official Site HERE

Canelo Alzarez Passes a Hair Follicle Drug Test

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 2 min read 0 views

In a bizarre turn of events which has shaken up the boxing world, Canelo Alvarez, one of the most well known fighters, of Golden Boy Promotions, who has fought the likes of Floyd Mayweather and many other big name fighters, failed two urine tests for clenbuterol.

He was scheduled to fight a rematch against Gennady Golovkin, AKA GGG on May 5, which is a huge boxing weekend that often hosts the biggest fights of the year.

Many people have flamed him for this, as he is at the top of the upper echelon of fighters, ranked as one of the best pound for pound fighters, and has a huge fan base, especially in his native country of Mexico.

Canelo Passes His Hair Test

So at the request of the Nevada Athletic Commission, they submitted samples of his hair, and experts say that a hair test should show whether he was actually taking this substance, or if it truly was just an accidental occurrence in which he consumed tainted meat containing the substance, which would apparently not be the first time this has happened to a professional athlete from eating Mexican meat.

And he passed the hair test, which he hopes will clear him of any suspicions of taking a performance enhancing drug. It was also mentioned that he is additionally willing to take a polygraph test to further prove his innocence.

I am a bit bummed from this, as he is a fighter I have come to really like watching, and thinking that he was taking a banned substance tainted his legacy a bit for me, and for many others from what I gather from the responses in social media.

Does This Clear His Name?

Honestly it is a bit difficult to make a black and white statement about that with numerous different articles about the topic, many which are mixed with emotion. I have seen quite a few fighters say they believe he cheated without a doubt, and some even said they wondered if he was on something when they fought him.

I personally hope that it does decisively clear his name, because as I said, I have become a fan, and look forwards to watching more of his fights in the future, especially the rematch with GGG, which Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Buy Promotions says they are ready for in September, depending how the GGG fight goes in May.

 

45 Calorie Coffee That Tastes Like It Has Milk and Sugar

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 1 min read 1 views

One of the staples in my weight loss journey has been how I mix my coffee.

I typically drink a few cups per day, and that can add up to a lot of calories if you use sugar and whole milk, which is my paste preference.’

Granted I had used some alternatives to sugar, like honey and maple syrup, which is slightly better, but that is still a LOT of calories through the course of the day, when drinking a few cups of coffee like myself.

I created a quick video with what I use, posted below. What I use for sweeteners is Xylitol, Stevia and a creamer that has sucralose, and it tastes very close to real sugar/

Here is the video where I show what I use. It is Trader Joe’s Stevia extract, and the Xylitol I use is on Amazon:

 

The Nate Diaz Rule – Now CBD Is OK Anytime!

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 2 min read 0 views

You may remember at the time of the two big fights Nate Diaz had with Conor Mcgregor in the UFC, as there was plenty of entertaining sports drama, making constant headlines, and both ended up being epic fights.

Well, after one of them, Nate Diaz was vaping at the post fight press conference, and when asked what he was vaping on, he said CBD.

Someone called him out and said he was in violation, as you aren’t supposed to use marijuana for 4 hours after a fight.

Well, CBD does not have the mind altering effects from the THC in cannabis, but rather is seeming like more and more of a boon to society, including a growing number of claimed benefits, some of which are that of pain relief and reducing inflammation and helping with recovery.

The New Nate Diaz Rule

Well, now it has been announced that CBD is no longer a banned substance, so you won’t need to worry about passing a drug test if you are taking any of the forms of CBD for your recovery regime if you fight for the UFC, as it has been removed from the WADA prohibited substances list.

They have also changed the post fight time period to end the minute a sample has been taken, and this is being credit to Nate Diaz according to MMA Weekly.

Now I am hoping that he will get back into the octagon for a fight, I miss both Diaz brothers fights, they are so entertaining to watch!

Conor McGregor Sparring Knock Out Happened Over A Year Ago According To Jesse Vargas/Nick Diaz Trainer

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 1 min read 2 views

There has been endless hype leading up to the Mayweather Mcgregor boxing match coming up August 26th, 2017.

Recently a rumor started that Conor was knocked out sparring for the fight with Floyd. First people were saying it was Brandon Rios who knocked him out, and then those rumors were squashed by ESNews, who called Brandon Rios, and he denied ever having met McGregor.

The rumor appears to have started with Jesse Vargas in another video, who was jogging with Brandon Rios, and Jesse made a joke about Rios having knocked out McGregor, as Rios was right in front of him. But then Jesse did say it is true that McGregor was already knocked out sparring.

Following all those rumors, Dontae’s Nation asked Dewey, who trained Jesse Vargas and Nick Diaz, and he said that it is true, and that it happened over a year ago, when Conor first got his boxing license in California. That a few fighters had an easy time with him, even out of shape.

So there is a bunch of ‘he said, she said’ going on, though Dewey is backing up Jesse Vargas on this one, saying not only can you trust what Jesse says, but that he also heard a similar story.

See the interview in the video below:

18,000 Seats Gone After A Couple Hours For Mayweather McGregor Press Tour, Barclay’s Center, Brooklyn?

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 1 min read 1 views

I was just looking up info about the press tour that was just announced for the Floyd Mayweather Conor McGregor fight, called the Mayweather vs McGregor World Tour and it said that there were free tickets at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY.

The seating capacity for the Barclay’s Center is over 18,000. I figured that’s a cool idea, so that there is plenty of tickets for anyone who wants top check out the press conference.

Not So fast!

I just checked TicketMaster.com where they announced the tickets are available on a first come first serve basis, and it appears that none are available.

Right now it looks like this was just announced – could they have all been grabbed that fast?

Maybe this really will be the fight of the century. Unless it was a premature announcement and they aren’t ready yet.

I did also notice how the nosebleed seats for the Mayweather McGregor fight are starting at $2,000, crazy!

Big Sean Credits Ask And It Is Given With Getting A Record Deal

Martin Lotsberg By Posted on 2 min read 0 views

It was cool to hear that Big Sean is into The Law of Attraction. I heard him talking about it in a video about celebrities and The Law of Attraction which I’ll add at the bottom of this post.

In this video, he talks in general about manifesting things in his life, and credits the Law of Attraction to it. I was then watching another and he mentioned the book Ask and It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks.

Then I went into a bit of research mode, and found that he mentions that book quite a bit, along with The Alchemist, The Four Agreements and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.

I enjoy hearing someone like him talking about it in such a way, as it makes it more tangible as opposed to something like the movie The Secret, where you essentially have people who got rich, teaching you how to get rich, not that they are wrong or anything like that, but it holds more weight when you hear it in the way Big Sean portrays it, and repeats himself many places about it, including the Tweet I posted as the main image above for this post.

It is a fascinating and controversial topic, and I always enjoy reading up on it, and hearing testimonials.

There are a couple more cool things in this video, like how Jon Jones says he believes in the Law of Attraction, and was calling himself Champ 2011, when he was signing autographs, and Ariel Helwani asked him about it, and he mentioned the Law of Attraction, that he believes in being able to speak things into existence.

Incidentally, Conor McGregor also speaks a lot about the Law of Attraction, and so, that alone is some pretty good testimony for skeptics out there, as they are two of the biggest stars of the UFC.
