This episode is all about peptides, hormones, aging backwards and saving relationships. I am here with Josh Whalen, who is an expert in some of these topics. He’s the founder of Blokes and a new company called Joi, and through his own experience of low energy, lack of focus, dwindling drive, and other health issues, he reached out to find his own answers to this, and it led to what is now a business helping many people do the same.
We talk about a lot of these things today. We go deep on how we can drastically improve the divorce rate in the U.S. by optimizing couples’ hormones and how he learned this from his personal experience, steps to testing and optimizing hormones, the four major hormone markers we should be looking at, what peptides are, and how we can use them to our advantage, including a couple really fascinating new ones, some simple factors that can make a big difference in optimizing hormones, the peptides he recommends, and so much more.
