Achieving Age-Defying Athletic Performance, Part 1
March 18, 2021
Dr. David Minkoff is an integrative physician, and at 72, a champion amateur athlete, training this season for his 44th full Ironman Triathlon. He relates the story of his career transformation from conventional medicine to the founding of Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 after his wife developed a debilitating illness that eluded medical diagnosis. It turned out she had mercury toxicity, and detoxification alleviated her symptoms. That decisive event launched Dr. Minkoff’s investigation of alternative methodologies. He attributes his age-defying athletic performance to careful nutrition—he follows a very low carb diet and monitors his blood sugar with a continuous glucose monitor. He uses an Oura ring too monitor his physiologic state, and budgets time for adequate sleep and recovery. He’s also a proponent of amino acid supplementation and has formulated his own performance-enhancing formula, PerfectAmino. Dr. Minkoff also takes an array of nutritional supplements.

Sports Nutrition: Nutrients for Performance and Endurance, Part 1
December 15, 2020
Today we explore Nutrigenomics and sports nutrition with Brent Luycks (pronounced “Lucks”) a former Belgian champion cyclist who is founder of 4Gold, a company focused on enhancement of athletic performance. 4Gold works with professional athletes and ordinary optimizers to develop personalized nutrition programs geared to their genetic characteristics. Brent describes what insights can be gained from nutrigenomic profiling using saliva samples of DNA. In my case, for example, it bettered my understanding of my athletic aptitude (mixed), my injury potential, my recovery ability, and my unique requirements for nutrients associated with performance and endurance. Brent, as a survivor of Crohn’s disease, describes an innovative prebiotic, 2’-Fucosyllactose, a constituent of human milk. It has the potential to address GI disorders, and supports optimal absorption, a limiting factor in athletic performance. He also details ingredients in a sports supplement embraced by many top endurance athletes on the European circuit. Click HERE for part 2.
