At 50 years of age, Joe Rogan is at better physical shape than many 30 year olds. And it’s not just his physique that’s impressive, he’s also managing to stay mentally sharp too. Whether he’s injecting testosterone, devouring elk meat or hulking down vegetable smoothies, Joe is definitely on the watch out for performance enhancing substances.
Because of Joe’s UFC and fully stand up comedy commitments, Joe has to travel a great deal around the USA. This explains his choice of multivitamin supplement, which is offered in handy little packets, containing a variety of different vitamins, minerals and fish oil. This is a time saver, simply because you don’t must open up x few different vitamin tubs to allocate your day-to-day ration.
Joe values omega-3 fish oils highly, and ensures he’s taking them regularly. Within the same Tom Papa podcast above, it is possible to skip to 1:02:40 where they discuss the importance of fish oils, and how it’s more efficient than getting your omega-3s from flax-seed or hemp oil.
Based on Joe’s Instagram post, his YouTube tour of his vitamin cupboard, and also the latest Dr Rhonda Patrick podcast, Joe currently takes Carlson’s Super Omega-3 fish oil in liquid form. He currently takes 3 tablespoons daily (he mentions the dosage within his latest podcast with Rhonda Patrick).
If you locate capsules more convenient (because i do), it can be purchased in two capsulated versions; one with beef gelatine capsules, and the other with fish derived capsules (ideal for pescetarians). A 2 capsule serving contains 1,200mg omega-3s, including 600mg EPA & 400mg DHA.
Since Joe was young, he trained as a taekwondo fighter, competing nationally. Even though he finished fighting competitively, he still trains hard. This leads to many damage on the joints, and thus Joe uses glucosamine & chondroitin.
Nowadays the phrase “nootropics” is typical place, and it also seems so many people are knowledgeable about the concept of Joe Rogan Supplements. However, similar to many things, Joe was ahead of the curve. Among the first (or even the initial) he took was one called Neuro1. The merchandise came about after NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski started losing his memory, after a 16 year career. In the market for solutions, Bill brought together doctors, scientists, and nutritionists to create a solution which adphxz his cognitive decline.
Given Joe’s involvement at Onnit, and his prior utilization of Neuro1, I don’t think it’s a stretch to imagine that Onnit’s flagship product Alpha Brain took some “inspiration” from Neuro1.
These days, Joe’s visit nootropic is Alpha Brain, both in pill form and sachet form. Although he notes that every the supplements ingredients could be bought separately at a lower price, it might just require more effort and time.
Interestingly, Onnit did sponsor a 63 person study that published results showing that Alpha Brain improved “delayed memory recall” vs a placebo. Specifically that’s where participants are told/shown something, then a break occurs, then they’re later asked questions that will require them to recall the data they were earlier provided. Now, given that Onnit sponsored the research, we must use appropriate scepticism in interpreting their good results; but thought it interesting to bring up nonetheless.
