Optimal Protein Intake & Muscle-Centric Medicine for Health & Longevity with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon [Podcast Episode #63]

By: Ben Brown

In this episode we’ll cover all things protein as far as protein intake on muscle health and longevity. We’ll discuss the relationship between muscle mass and brain health, blood sugar regulation, as well as the benefit of having relatively large amounts of lean muscle tissue. Lastly, we’ll discuss how much protein should be consumed, what sources are best, and which protein supplements are best.

“We are now seeing changes in the muscle composition starting in your 30s because we are on our phones, we're not moving, we really have become incapable of using the tissue that is muscle. Also, our protein intake is declining. The end result is the muscle tissue becomes destroyed and once that muscle tissue becomes destroyed there's that trajectory of aging.”

Trained as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Gabrielle works with nutritional interventions, metabolic and genetic testing, and behavioral action plans to to precisely fine-tune metabolism, balance hormones, and transform body composition. Her formal education culminated in nutritional science and geriatrics research at Washington University in St. Louis.
