Georgie Ryan comes on the show to teach Dr. Anthony Gustin all about quantum health and circadian biology.
Quantum health is a new rabbit hole Dr. Gustin is eager to explore. It suspends everything we know about nutrition to take a nano-perspective of how electrons from our food and environment give us energy.
As Georgie explains, macronutrients like carbs and fat are only one way to power our bodies. He shares four more ways we can soak up electrons (and one that may be even better than food).
But we can’t really leverage those electrons without the power of UV light. So Georgie breaks down the basics of circadian biology, which is how sunlight influences everything from our hormone and neurotransmitter production to our gut microbiome.
Tune into this episode, and you’ll also hear about:
Foods with the highest availability of electrons
Water and hydration from a quantum perspective
How to follow an ideal circadian rhythm optimized for each sunlight phase
Why sunlight during the UVA rise sets the tone for how you feel the rest of the day
The most important meal in circadian biology
The nuances of melatonin for your body’s repair and restoration cycles (and how to avoid suppressing it)
