At 50 years of age, Joe Rogan is in better physical shape than many 30 yr 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, consuming elk meat or hulking down vegetable smoothies, Joe is usually on the look out for performance enhancing substances.
Due to Joe’s UFC and stand up comedy commitments, Joe must travel a lot round 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. It is a way to save time, simply because you don’t need to open x few different vitamin tubs to allocate your everyday ration.
Joe values omega-3 fish oils highly, and ensures he’s taking them regularly. In the same Tom Papa podcast above, you are able to skip to 1:02:40 where they discuss the value of fish oils, and exactly how it’s more efficient than getting your omega-3s from flax-seed or hemp oil.
Based upon 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 in the latest podcast with Rhonda Patrick).
If you find capsules easier (as I do), it also comes 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 wear and tear on the joints, and thus Joe uses glucosamine & chondroitin.
Today the term “nootropics” is typical place, plus it seems most people are knowledgeable about the thought of Joe Rogan Supplements. However, just like a lot of things, Joe was in front of the curve. Among the first (if not the first) he took was one called Neuro1. The item came to exist after NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski started losing his memory, after a 16 year career. Searching for solutions, Bill brought together doctors, scientists, and nutritionists to make a solution which adphxz his cognitive decline.
Given Joe’s involvement at Onnit, and his prior usage 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 head to nootropic is Alpha Brain, both in pill form and sachet form. Although he notes that most the supplements ingredients could be bought separately for less, it would just require more time and energy.
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 needs these to recall the details they were earlier provided. Now, considering the fact that Onnit sponsored the analysis, we need to use appropriate scepticism in interpreting their great results; but thought it interesting to bring up nonetheless.
