Episode 109: Wade Lightheart On How To Supplement Your Nutrient-Deficient Diet and Take Back Your Health

Episode 109: Wade Lightheart On How To Supplement Your Nutrient-Deficient Diet and Take Back Your Health

Meet Wade Lightheart, the president of BiOptimizers, 3-time bodybuilding champion, author, and expert on gut health and fitness optimization. I’m thrilled to have Wade on today’s episode to talk about all things diet and nutrition for holistic wellbeing… and to get his take on the main thing on everyone’s mind right now: COVID-19.

This conversation was a personal one for me. Much like my own health issues guided me to the world of natural medicine, Wade went through a series of formative experiences that sparked his interest in supplements and nutrition. At age 15, Wade’s family moved to a remote village in New Brunswick and his older sister was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease. As a coping mechanism, he channeled his time and energy into bodybuilding, a decision would fundamentally change the course of his life.

After competing in Mr. Universe in 2003, Wade realized that his body was in a state of dysfunction, and he began studying enzymes, probiotics, digestion, and mineralizations. What he learned inspired the founding of BiOptimizers, a company offering high-quality, research-based products that enhance physical health, emotional wellbeing, fitness performance, and cognitive function. 

Through my own experience and research, I have no doubt that all aspects of health are rooted in the gut and I am certain that we must follow our instincts and trust in what our guts tell us is true. In this episode of Natuerious, we have the opportunity to glean knowledge from a gut-health virtuoso. You’ll learn about the importance of enzymes in digestion, which supplements all Americans should be taking, why you shouldn’t trust every single medical study, plus some behavioral and attitudinal changes you can make that will dramatically improve the quality of your life — both today and in the uncertain future.

Monoculture Farming: A farming method that reuses soil, rather than rotating crops. This method leads to mineral deficient soil that weakens plant immunity, resulting in the increased use of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.  

Satiety Index: A measuring system for the amount of a particular food you can eat before your brain registers that you’ve had enough.

Circadian Rhythm: The 24 hour clock relative to the sun that all living things follow. 

Chronotype: Your individual sleep cycle.

GMP Certified Lab: Stands for “Good Manufacturing Process”. These labs follow contaminate protocols.
