Rapid Biohacking, Rebuilding Our Brains and the Benefits of Time-Restricted Eating

With Mike Mutzel

Have you or a loved one been on a destructive path, and wondered how on earth are things going to change? Our good friend and Functional Nutrition expert Mike Mutzel opens up for the first time here on The Broken Brain Podcast about his experience as a child and young person doing drugs, stealing, and being on a path that was going nowhere fast.

Mike shares with our host and executive producer of the Broken Brain docu-series, Dhru Purohit, how he pulled himself out of the deep dark hole of depression and turned his life around to be a Functional Nutrition scholar, interviewer extraordinaire, and social media master.

Dhru and Mike cover a wide range of topics in this episode including insulin and leptin resistance, why you want to reduce your body fat, the benefits of time-restricted eating, what plays a role in good health, and much, much more!
