Biohacking Superhuman Performance

Oct 16, 2020

Dr. Amber is an A4M trained peptide expert and Naturopathic Doctor practicing out of beautiful California.  In this episode we talk about two peptides that address mitochondria and why that’s an amazing place to start with peptides. Dr. Amber uses the term “forgot” which you’ll learn why towards the end of the show, and how to remind your body of proper signaling and why peptides are so amazing!
