Episode #51: Dr. Molly Maloof: The Powerful Mitochondria & Why We Have to Protect Them
This episode of the Thinking Health podcast features Dr. Molly Maloof. Dr. Maloof, a former Stanford lecturer, is an expert in metabolic health and specializes in the science of biohacking for women.
In this episode, we cover a plethora of topics including why our metabolic health is so poor, the role mitochondria play in our health, why we must protect them, and even how to do so. We also get specifically into the role keto and insulin play in mitochondrial health.
This episode also features a ton of women's health info such as the science of menstrual cycles including when it's best to train, when it's best to rest, and what you can do to optimize your menstrual cycle or at the least reduce some of the symptoms. We also get into the role of gut health in hormones and hormone-related health conditions like PCOS and endometriosis.
Mr. Maloof is the author of Spark Factor: The Secret to Supercharging Energy, Becoming Resilient and Feeling Better Than Ever. This book is a guide to biohacking for women and contains a ton of practical information that can dramatically improve the health of women everywhere. I highly recommend checking it out.
