When it comes to supplements, I’m a HUGE nerd. In fact, I use dozens of supplements every single day – and they have a major impact on the way I look and feel. 

But the truth is, it wasn’t always that way.

In fact, I used to joke that supplements only made for expensive urine. 

And while I’ve changed my opinion — it’s TRUE that not all supplements are created equal. 

Unfortunately, some of the supplements you’ll find on store shelves aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. 

Which is why high-quality supplements are so important — they can have a DRAMATIC effect on your health and longevity and are WELL worth the time and money. 

But how do you decipher between a supplement that will do what it says on the label and one that’s completely bogus?  

Well, my guest is here to help. He’s Hector Lopez, a physician-scientist with a uniquely diverse background in sports medicine, exercise science, nutritional biochemistry and clinical research

Dr. Lopez co-owns and directs an integrated “Triad” of B2B companies within the dietary supplement, functional foods and medical foods spaces. 

And on today’s episode, he and I reveal the shocking truth about many of the supplements on the market, share insider tips for choosing the highest-quality options, and discuss the amazing new compound discovered by Dr. Lopez himself that can help YOU boost your energy and help you lead a longer, happier life.
