“You no longer have to fear Alzheimer's disease”
— Steven Fowkes

Greetings, SuperFriends, and welcome to today’s show!

As you guys know, my connection to the “superhuman” world is the work I do in accelerated learning, speed reading, and memory techniques. And I would imagine that you all, like yours truly, are very interested in keeping your brains happy and healthy, as much if not more than the rest of your bodies. Well, today, we’re going to talk about exactly that – keeping your brain healthy – now and well into your old age.

We are joined by Steven William Fowkes, the biohacker, author, and health expert behind Project Wellbeing, who’s spent the last 14 years promoting an insight into Alzheimer’s prevention. Now, you might not yet be the age where you need to worry about Alzheimer’s, but in fact, Steven’s words of wisdom apply to all age groups. That’s because he has authored or co-authored 6 books, and is a true renaissance man with interests and work spanning from nanotechnology to nutrition to material’s science.

In this episode, we talk about all things related to the brain and improving it’s performance. We talk about Alzheimer’s prevention, nootropics, a brain-boosting diet, all sorts of biohacks, and more. For those of you who really love the technical, geeky stuff, you’re going to love this episode, because we go way down the rabbit hole and geek way out. Either way, I think you’re going to learn a ton from this episode, and if so, drop me a tweet and let me know what you thought!

    Great interview with Dr. Greg Wells! He mentioned a doctor from Colorado around the 42:30 point of the podcast, discussing turmeric and black pepper. I couldn’t make out the doctor’s name. Can you provide me with his full name and maybe his website or contact info. Interested in his products.

    Maybe oarts of the things he has to share are right, maybe not. If I look at him which impact his nurturing and living style has on himself I see a very old looking man! He is year 1973!! That is not old and he looks definitly much older!! If I would not know his birthyear I would guess that he is in his mid-60ies!! A bit concering for someone who claims his lifestyle is suitable for a long life, isn’t it?
