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, devouring elk meat or hulking down vegetable smoothies, Joe is usually on the watch out for performance enhancing substances.
Because of Joe’s UFC and fully stand up comedy commitments, Joe must travel a lot across the USA. This explains his choice of multivitamin supplement, which is offered in handy little packets, containing an array of different vitamins, minerals and fish oil. This is a way to save time, because you don’t must start x number of 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 value of fish oils, and exactly how it’s more effective 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 far more convenient (because i do), it is available in two capsulated versions; one with beef gelatine capsules, and another 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 being 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 so Joe uses glucosamine & chondroitin.
Nowadays the term “nootropics” is typical place, plus it seems most people are knowledgeable about the concept of Joe Rogan Supplements. However, similar to several things, Joe was ahead of the curve. One of the first (or even the initial) he took was one called Neuro1. The merchandise came to exist after NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski started losing his memory, following a 16 year career. Searching for solutions, Bill brought together doctors, scientists, and nutritionists to produce a solution which adphxz his cognitive decline.
Given Joe’s involvement at Onnit, along with his prior utilization of Neuro1, I don’t think it’s a stretch to visualize 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 could 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 requires them to recall the details these people were earlier provided. Now, considering the fact that Onnit sponsored the analysis, we need to use appropriate scepticism in interpreting their good results; but thought it interesting to mention nonetheless.
