17. OFM & the Ruminant Revolution!

November 10, 2016

Join us for an enlightening and fact filled conversation with Peter Ballerstedt PhD on "The Ruminant Revolution!" Counter-intuitive to most of the environmental science in the media, ruminants play a vital role in the eco-system, including carbon sequestration and your own ! This podcast covers the gamet from differences in the digestive tracts of ruminants from other mammals (including humans) to their role in nature, to nutritional facts about ruminant red meat and how they fit into the OFM Program. We also dispense a lot of the polarization when it comes to sourcing red meat to take out the stress and fear most consumers are led to believe about ruminant meats and feeding/grazing practices. Boatloads of "Meaty" information without the fluff or hyperbole, which the listener can use to improve not only their health and well being. All from the people "Leading the Science" on fat adapted health!

16. Completing the Nitrogen Cycle; Implications for Health & Performance

November 6, 2016

Another groundbreaking podcast from the leaders in fat adapted performance. For the past 20 months OFM has been developing and implementing the inoculation of Nitrosomonas eutropa bacteria for a number of natural fat adapted performance enhancements. These include, but are not limited too, improved vasodilation and thermoregulation; two factors which are critical to performance.

 
This past spring and summer elite athletes Jeff Browning and Romain Bardet inoculated themselves and raced successfully at the highest levels of their respective sports. Jeff raced to 3rd Overall at Western States 100 then turned around 19 days later to finish 4th Overall at the Hardrock 100 setting a new WS/HR combined time record. 7 weeks later he continued his performance with a 4th Overall finish at Run Rabbit Run 100.  Romain Bardet became a hero in France after winning Stage 19 and 2nd Overall at the Tour de France.
