FFF 057: The Surprising Truth About Dietary Supplements That Might Change The Way You Eat – with Kamal Patel


The phrase “game changer” is often thrown around far too easily but this episode could seriously change the way you think about dietary supplements.

Our guest this week is Kamal Patel who is the Director of Examine.com – one of the largest independent and unbiased websites on the internet that publishes on supplementation and nutrition.

In this episode Kamal explains the differences between “supplements” and “compliments”, why taking a multivitamin is probably unnecessary, the truth about omega 3 supplementation, the reasons why he thinks sunlight and going outdoors is probably better than any supplement you can take and the effect funding can have on supplement study outcomes.

Kamal also shares his top tips for selecting the best cooking oils, why we should focus more on reducing Omega6 intake instead of increasing Omega3 and he reveals the best type of whey protein that you’ve probably never heard of.
