Biohacking Superhuman Performance

May 10, 2022

My guests this week are Steven Munatones CEO & Co-founder and John Doolittle, CAPT, USN of KAATSU Global, Inc. In this episode, John, Steven and I discuss KAATSU: one of the first known  forms of blood flow restriction training (BFRT) developed in Japan by Dr. Yoshiaki Sato. The less aggressive, but more cyclic nature of KAATSU gives you all the benefits of BFRT without the downsides and aggressive discomfort that typically comes with other blood flow restriction devices. We discuss the decades of scientific research behind KAATSU, several known applications,  and array of benefits that can be experienced like stem cell concentration, testosterone, and bone health improvements. 

We'll definitely have them back for a second interview so we can dig in more on protocols.

Thank you to Berkeley Life, nitric oxide is made naturally in the body, helping to relax the walls of blood vessels and promoting healthy circulation. However, stress, age and environmental factors can inhibit your body's ability to make enough of it. When Nitric Oxide is low, your body loses that natural circulatory boost, which not only impacts your cardiovascular system, but also other key systems that rely on the circulation of blood, oxygen, and nutrients.
