[INTERVIEW]

 

Justin Donald: What’s up, Regan? Good to have you on the show.

 

Regan Archibald: Nice to be here, Justin.

 

Justin Donald: Yeah, this is fun. So, we’ve had a chance to talk about all kinds of stuff. We share many mutual friends. In fact, we originally were connected through Mike Koenigs, and he has worked with both of us. And we also were speaking at the same event, same venue, two different days, which is really cool over at Wizard Academy for those that are familiar with that venue and that we can call it a university or an educational resource. And you have just done some really cool things in the world and I’d love to be able to share your story. So, take us back to the beginning. How did you even get into like health and wellness and biohacking and all the cool stuff that you’re up to?

 

Regan Archibald: The biggest motivator for me, Justin, was I didn’t want to be a farmer when I grew up. I grew up on a cattle ranch in Idaho, and the winters are cold. The wind blows hard. You know, we would run our cattle near Driggs, Idaho, and close to Jackson Hole and so some of the driest winters but your nose would stick together. And I had an uncle who was a doctor, and I said, “I want to be like Lester Jay. He had weekends off. His hands were soft. He seemed happy.” And so, that’s really how I kind of chose my path in medicine but it wasn’t until I was studying my pre-medical work at the University of Utah, I had five doctors misdiagnose me with Hashimoto’s. And so, it wasn’t until I went to a naturopathic doctor who is also an acupuncturist who ran my labs, and he actually ordered autoimmune markers. Thyroid peroxidase antibodies was the one that we looked at and mine were off the charts. And so, he said, “Oh, you’ve got an autoimmune condition.” And so, I ended up changing my whole trajectory. Instead of studying just conventional medicine, I went to school in Hawaii and studied integrative medicine there and learned both Eastern and Western medicine from some of the world’s leading physicians and started my practice, which is called East West Health 20 years ago. And since then, I’ve always been curious and fascinated with biology and health care. And my big focus has been all 100% on longevity.

 

Justin Donald: I love it. Well, going to school in Hawaii probably didn’t suck. So, good choice there. Curious, so how long did you live In Hawaii? Was it just for school? Did you stay there longer?

 

Regan Archibald: Just four years on the big island. And it was perfect. I had island fever by the end. My daughter was just born And so we wanted to be closer to family. But it’s a great place to be dead broke. You could live off avocados. I must have eaten 20 eggs a day because I lived on a chicken farm. And so, that was part of how we did rent exchanges. I built a coffee shack for them and I made it livable. And then they would give me eggs and we had avocados, mangoes. I mean, it was great. It was a really fun time of life. I look back to it with fondness. But when it came time for the rubber to meet the road, I wanted to come back to Utah. The mountains are my home.

 

Justin Donald: That’s awesome. And I know you do a lot of outdoor stuff. I mean, I was just on your show. We talked about how you and your wife go hiking and you like to mountain bike and your dad. So, your dad still mountain bikes but in younger years. It sounds like you guys really got after it, right?

 

Regan Archibald: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

 

Justin Donald: That’s cool. I love it. Go ahead.

 

Regan Archibald: Yeah. It’s a passion of mine. I mean, one of the big reasons I love studying health is because my body is my own laboratory. And so. same with you, financing, you do all your own deals first, and then you share with other people. Every year I do a 365-day challenge. And so, I’ve been doing that for almost a decade. So, one year I did every day I’ll do ice fast for a year, for example. So, on my birthday, May 20th, every year I reset it and I say, “What’s my new challenge?” And then I’ll do some crazy challenge and it’s been very rewarding to see what can happen from a biological perspective when you stick to something consistently for a year.

 

Justin Donald: Wow. Yeah, That’s pretty incredible. So, what are some of these other tests that you’ve done on yourself? This sounds fantastic.

 

Regan Archibald: Well, they’re all based around fitness because I want a mountain bike, and I was telling you, like, when I’m in my 80s, 90s, 150, however old I am, I don’t want to leave behind all the things that I love, which is mountain biking, which is hiking, which is skiing, snowboarding, anything that creates adrenaline. I have a dirt bike that I ride all over the mountains of Midway. So, anything I do is going to help facilitate greater levels of physical fitness and mental fitness. So, I had one of my challenges that actually I really enjoyed was working out twice a week or twice a day, not twice a week, twice a day. So, I’d work out in the morning and I would do some type of full-body workout. Maybe it was a CrossFit WOD or I’d do something else, and then at night I’d work out again, but it wouldn’t be as high intensity. But I learned that my body actually did really well. If I could get outside twice a day and move my body in a way that induced a sweat. And so, that’s something that I’ve stuck with. The challenge I’m doing right now that I’ve got about one more month left to my 365 days is 25 enjoyable miles per week. And so, all that means is I have my Apple Watch and I just make sure that every week I’m spending at least 25 miles of doing something that I really love doing whether that’s this year has been skiing.

 

Our snow in Utah we broke our all-time record of snowfall, you know, 800 inches in Alta is no small feat. And so, most of my miles have been on the ski slopes or cross-country skiing. I took that up this year. A lot of it is just walking the dogs with my wife at night, checking in on the day. I mountain biked in Saint George last weekend, which was really fun because it’s actually spring down there, even though it’s April at the time of this recording. So, yeah, those are some of the challenges that I’ve done that keeps physical fitness kind of at the forefront but also our brains love challenge and our brains love novelty. And so, in health, you can get pretty monotonous and it’s not good for your body and it’s not good for your brain so I try to shift it up every year.

 

Justin Donald: Oh, that’s good. And you had shared a stat with me that I thought was really powerful, kind of measuring how many hours someone works out a week and kind of their overall level of enjoyment or even the connection to like wealth. And I’d love for you to share that. I think it’s powerful.

 

Regan Archibald: I believe you’re referring to the longevity study where it’s one of the largest cohorts, 128,000 people. And they followed this group for over 30 years. And they just had the participants fill in what lifestyle they had, like how physically fit or how physically active are you? What was your nutrition like? And some people ate really well, some didn’t, some drank, some smoked. And what the cornerstone of the study, what they found is that it was the people who were exercising 300 minutes a week of moderate intensity or 600 minutes a week of mild intensity lived 27% to 31% longer than people who didn’t. So, there’s literally nothing that you can do that circumvents a sedentary lifestyle.

 

Justin Donald: Wow, That’s just powerful. And by the way, I really believe that how financially successful you are has a lot to do with your capacity, your physical ability, your physical capacity, your mental capacity. And so, I feel like what I have experienced and what I’ve talked to many other successful and wealthy individuals about is that when their body is right, when their mind is right, then it opens up all these other doors and all these other facets for them on the entrepreneurial side or on the wealth creation side, on the cash flow side. So, it’s pretty powerful. Like that study is incredible. So, you got into this whole idea of longevity. What I’m really curious about is you decided to go in a different route than many people who want to have the type of impact that you are having. Right? So, a lot of people kind of go the conventional route, maybe like medical doctor, lots of years of school, lots of debt coming out of residency and however many postgraduate degrees. You went a totally different path. And I’d love to hear like how you came to that realization and then how you just kind of singled in on just this love and this passion for longevity.

 

Regan Archibald: Well, yes, and I did. You know, I had a lot of years of schooling under my belt but the nice thing about it is I always had the philosophy kind of three things. First philosophy was when health improves, everything improves. And if you’ve never had a sickness, actually, every human on here has had a day where they have felt like crap. But if you’ve had a chronic injury or a chronic illness, it’s a whole nother level where life is, you know, when I had my autoimmune condition and all the doctors were telling me was, “Hey, you’re just stressed. Take fewer classes.” I’m like, “No, I actually would work sunup to sundown. I was slave labor growing. This was easy. School was always pretty easy for me.” And I said something else is wrong but I knew when my health would improve, everything would improve. So, I recognize that when the body is broken, it can be fixed. And in medicine these days, the conventional medicine that was offered to me at the time was here’s a drug to suppress the symptom. And that’s what’s happened in our society today is where we want instant gratification. We want the quick fix. If it’s something that we have to work towards, then we’re kind of rolling our eyes at it and we’re like, “Oh, it must not be real medicine because I actually have to make lifestyle changes.” Well, I can tell you real medicine is the exact opposite.

 

Real medicine is when you can create an environment where the body can heal itself. So, that was one of the big underlying philosophies that I’ve got. The second one was I believe that no death by neglect. And so, with my own journey, I started to see that all of these aspects of my health were being neglected by the physicians at the time that I was seeing. And these were my mentors. These were the professors in medical school that were going to be working with me. And I suddenly realized I’m like, “They can’t help me and if they can’t help me, that’s a problem because who’s going to be able to train me and mentor me in a way that I can help the thousands or hundreds of thousands of people I’d be serving?” So, I made the realization I’m never going to leave any stone unturned. When a patient came to me. I’m going to dive deeper with better testing. So, at the school I went to, it was founded by Earl Bakken, who is the inventor of the pacemaker, and he always would say, “Hey, medicine’s about 25 years behind the research. I don’t want anyone who graduates from this school to be that far behind the research, so you’ve got to stay up on it.”

 

And so, that’s one of the reasons why I adopted peptides so quickly because not only have they been studied for over a hundred years. Insulin was the first peptide ever sequenced but it’s got very hard science behind it and data to back it up and it’s got a time horizon that I’m confident with. But the only problem is a lot of these peptides are structures that haven’t been, you know, they’re not very stable at room temperature. And so, a lot of the pharmaceutical companies have bypassed them because they’re injectables but we’ve been able to adopt them very quickly and bring peptides over the last decade. My clinic right now is probably the top 1% prescriber of peptides because we see they have low toxicity, they optimize health in ways that I’ve never imagined but they do it in a way that doesn’t carry a bunch of side effects if you do them properly.

 

Justin Donald: So, let’s break this down a little bit. So, what is a peptide and how would someone know if they’re a good candidate for taking peptides?

 

Regan Archibald: So, peptides are strings of amino acids. So, if you think of nature, nature is all protein so our bodies are folded proteins and these proteins have these peptides, these amino acid bonds. And when you break a bond, that’s what creates energy, and that creates an expression from a cellular level. So, we can use peptides that turn on the DNA for mTOR or for AMPK, which are two longevity pathways. We can use peptides that help stabilize blood sugar. One of the most popular peptides that we’re using right now is a peptide for weight loss called tirzepatide or semaglutide, and these are what are known as GLP-1 agonist. So, all peptides do is they go into your body and they remind your body how to produce the signal that gets lost over time. So, just like growth hormone by the age of 50, our growth hormone in most humans is dropped by 50%. What peptides can do is remind the body how to make that growth hormone again in a natural way. So, instead of putting exogenous hormones into the body, we can just retrain your body on how to make the hormones on its own with peptides.

 

Justin Donald: And so, there’s a distinction here that I want to make because for anyone that has used growth hormone or anyone that has used specifically testosterone, what ends up happening is your body senses that this testosterone or as I understand it, that your body senses this other form of testosterone. So, it triggers the body to not produce it at the level that maybe it was or it could, whereas peptides operated differently than that, right? This is more of like an activator as opposed to a supplement to something that your body needs. Is that accurate?

 

Regan Archibald: Oh, totally. Yeah. Because the way I looked at it is there’s got to be a way that we can use more natural processes and do it in a way that’s very safe and very effective. And growth hormone in a lot of the studies is shown to be very safe but the problem is, if your body’s in a pro-growth stage all the time, then that can feed things like cancer. And so, when you use a peptide, for example, to stimulate growth hormone, you get a 30-minute flush of an increase of the growth hormone by about seven times. So, that small little window, that small little secretion of growth hormone, that makes all the difference when it comes to recovery but it’s not continually in your body like growth hormone would be. Similar to testosterone, our bodies go through a process called aromatization, where if you’re putting too much testosterone in your body, then estrogen will come and start eating it up. And then for a man, that’s not very great to end up having what’s called andropause. So, when your estrogen levels rise and your testosterone levels plummet, you’re like, “Well, I’ve been using testosterone replacement therapy, but now I don’t feel good on it.”

 

What once gave you motivation, you have a pep in your step, you feel more desire from a libido perspective, you notice that there is a reward system because testosterone is one of the mitigators and modulators for dopamine. But then when it stops working, it’s almost like you go off a cliff. And so, with peptides, there’s ways of supplementing. Even if we’re using like a micro-dose of testosterone, we can still work on upstream pathways, like with gonadorelin or kisspeptin to get your body’s own endogenous or the internal production of testosterone made and that’s your best source. When it comes from your own body, when you’re getting high in your own supply, your body does so much better.

 

Justin Donald: Yeah. That’s fascinating. And so, with peptides, I know they’re becoming a lot more popular, a lot more mainstream, which I think it’s great. I’m glad more people are learning about them. But are there any that are not synthetic? I feel like a lot of the stuff that people are putting in their body is synthetic these days and just, you know, it’s artificial made in the lab. I’m curious what the world of peptides is around that.

 

Regan Archibald: Yeah. So, peptides, the raw material is originally so we use a lot of bioregulator peptides. The raw material is plants or animals and these are sequenced in compounded pharmacies there. They follow all the stringent FDA criteria but most people will go online and they’ll order peptides from you can get for research use only or if you get a bottle and it says, “Not for human consumption.” We’ve tested some of those peptides and there’s many reputable companies but there are several out there that you’re just not getting the full amino acid profile. So, what you think you’re putting in your body, you’re not really getting it and the purity is not always there. So, if you are using those kind of we call it off label or peptides from the black market, which 80% of people who are using peptides are using that, that type, you’re just not going to have the same benefit. And then please don’t go on blog and say peptides don’t work because you’ve actually never given it a full shake. And even some doctors are using peptides and they’ll put you on the same peptide for months on end. And for those of us who have been working with peptides for over a decade, we get a little frustrated with it because there’s a right way to do it and there’s a wrong way. You want to open up the pathways and stimulate the pathways for one or two months and then shift off those peptides and get on new ones. And so, because all peptides you’re doing is reminding your body how to function, they’re not a drug, it’s not meant to suppress a symptom. That’s not meant to achieve an outcome. They’re just meant to remind your body how to heal itself.

 

Justin Donald: Yeah. So, you’re putting amino acids which are the basic compounds of our body that make up our body into the system to kind of stimulate growth hormone, to stimulate like some of the body functioning the way that it should, that it needs to. I’m curious, are there any downsides to peptides? Like, I’m sure there are some side effects on some of them but I’m curious, even longer term if there’s anything to be concerned with the way that, like, for example, I know a lot of people that have been on testosterone for a long time and they say, “Gosh, I wish I would have never gotten on or at this point in my life, like, I can’t get off of it.” And there’s a lot of other prescription drugs that are that way where kind of once you start, you’re kind of in this thing because your body just stops producing it. So, I’m curious long term what, you know, both short term and long term, what does that look like?

 

Regan Archibald: Well, and that’s a great question because and I don’t mean to sound super sciency but it depends, right? Because biology, I can put a singular input into your biology and you’ll get a single response and then I can take ten other people and they may get different responses. So, that’s where we always look at blood labs. We take a very thorough perspective on those, and then we’re constantly working with our patients. I met with one of my patients earlier today and we put her on a peptide, BPC-157, and that’s a peptide that helps stimulate nitric oxide. It’s really good to heal the connective tissue. She had a lot of gut issues as well. And the problem is she was supposed to take a nasal spray with it called VIP or vasoactive intestinal peptide, and she was not taking those together. And so, that created some side effects where she felt like her heart was racing. But now we’ve got her back on the VIP and she’s going to be fine but some of the side effects we see are very mild. It can be kind of a flushing sensation like she was having some heart palpitations. They don’t last more than about 3 to 5 minutes. One of the most popular peptide that I mentioned earlier is called semaglutide or Ozempic is the pharmaceutical name. That’s the one where people have the most side effects because it delays gastric emptying.

 

And so, a lot of people feel kind of nauseated on it. If you dose it up too high, that can be problematic. People are losing muscle mass. So, we see people ending up being on that because the studies, the major study, the pioneer study, they kept people on that medication, that peptide for 68 weeks, and it’s just too long but it lowered hemoglobin A1C by 2%. People lost on average 30 pounds or 15% of their total body mass. I mean, it’s just like a miraculous peptide, but if you’re not doing it the right way, then people can lose muscle mass and then you have a whole nother issue, which is called sarcopenia that you’ve got to deal with. And so, those are some of the side effects but some of the peptides like the growth hormone, secretagogues, one’s called Tesamorelin and it’s been studied. It passed through the Phase III of the clinical trials back in 2012, but it’s used for HIV patients who have lipodystrophy or a lot of accumulation of adipose fat and a loss of muscle mass. And those participants, they had it very well tolerated the peptide for long-term for over two years. And we see those to be incredibly safe as long as you have five days on, two days off. For as long as you do it as prescribed, they’re pretty darn safe.

 

Justin Donald: So, what’s the difference between insulin and between tirzepatide or some other peptide that you’re injecting? So, you’ve got someone with diabetes who they have to take insulin, right? And then you’ve got someone who doesn’t but it’s a similar protocol. I’m curious on the difference there.

 

Regan Archibald: And it’s a great question because peptides, some peptides can be they function as an enzyme like one of my favorite peptides is called Epitalon. And what Epitalon does is it’s a telomerase enzyme, so it lengthens the telomeres on the end of your DNA. So, it’s a way of silencing your DNA so that you get better cellular expression. you feel more energetic. It also resets the stress response from cortisol in the body. So, a lot of the clients I work with, they’re entrepreneurial, they’re high stress. They are people that you and I spoke about that they need your program instead of being addicted to more and more and more like when you had your trailer park investment, you said that just took care of my active income. And your friends, you’re like, “You’ve just doubled your revenue,” and you said, “No, I just bought my time back.” People need more of that but Epitalon is a way of resetting that so that the stress can get mitigated. And then some peptides work as just a cell structure component so you think of ARA 290. That peptide helps create better structure in the red blood cells so you have better oxygen transportation. IGF-1, that unlocks BDNF so it’s really good for the brain. And then other peptides like insulin, they work similar to a hormone and so they have more long-acting, more binding potential.

 

And so, somebody who’s on like tirzepatide, for example, and on insulin, usually we would combine those because it can drop their blood sugar too low. So, there’s very rare cases that will do that if they’re on small amounts of insulin or one of my patients who’s a physician, he was on insulin and so he monitored his blood sugar really well. And so, over the course of 90 days, we were able to get him off his insulin with using tirzepatide specifically. we added in BPC-157 and tesamorelin with that. And he’s been able to put on muscle mass. The real secret to getting rid of diabetes type 2 specifically is add 15 pounds of muscle mass in exchange for fat. And it’s funny, it melts away. The diabetes goes.

 

Justin Donald: That’s incredible. Well, I mean, what a powerful recognition and realization that you can help your clients with. I think that’s great. One of the things I think is really cool about what you guys do there at East West is you do these very comprehensive labs. And I’d love for you to talk about that because I’ve gone through your program and I’ve been very impressed with your program. I got a chance not only to do labs at what for me was a considerable discount to what typically doing blood has been. So, my goal is to once a quarter be doing basically just testing all different types of things to my blood just to see where I’m going. I think, you know, a lot of your health experts, longevity experts are kind of in this place where they want to get these readings quarterly. And I think I hope more people start doing that. So, when I did your program, not only do we test like 20 different vials being sent off but you got kind of like a package deal for all of it. And then the report that you gave me was incredibly thorough, just so comprehensive. I’d love for you to talk about that.

 

Regan Archibald: Yeah. Happy to. And because my frustration in my own health journey was if I would have had the correct labs ran years ago, it could have saved me so much stress and so much sickness, poor health. So, the labs we run, it’s called functional blood chemistry. I’ve trained about 1,500 doctors on the process. I love it because what we do is we take the normal lab values and we narrow those. So, you’ll see what typically will show up on your conventional labs as being low or high. Those are just averages. So, you take the average of 90% of Americans, and as long as you fit into those averages, you’re considered healthy. It’s a WNL, within normal limits. And so, I’m in the longevity space. And so, I want to optimize all your levels and so you’ll see ours are yellow, red, and pink. And the yellow is when people are outside of optimal ranges. So, I had a patient a little while back. She came to me and she said, “Hey, I’ve got congestive heart failure. My doctor wants to put a pacemaker in.” And I said, “Hey, cardiology, I had the world’s leading cardiologists. You know, Earl Bakken founded my school. He’s the inventor of the pacemaker. He showed us how not to get people on the pacemaker. Give me six months and then I’ll send you back to your cardiologist and so don’t do anything drastic.”

 

So, we ran her blood labs and she said no one’s ever looked at my ferritin, no one’s ever looked at my homocysteine. These are two really important markers, even her fibrinogen really important markers when it comes to cardiovascular health. And then we ran another test that showed all the oxidative stress markers. And all we did is we gave her peptides. We started reversing those. We changed her lifestyle. And six months later I said, “All right. Time to go back to your cardiologist.” And he ran her through all the testing for congestive heart failure and he sent us a note back. He said, “I don’t know what you’ve done but you’ve reversed her congestive heart failure. She’s no longer in threat.” And so, we see that all the time. And this same cardiologist who sent other patients to us now and saying, “Hey, you guys know something that exists that I don’t and I want to collaborate.” And that’s some of the most exciting things that can happen but we couldn’t get her to that position if we didn’t actually run the right tests. And unfortunately, even though she’s seeing great cardiologists up here at the University of Utah, the markers weren’t being ran to actually help understand what to do from a lifestyle perspective to reverse the condition.

 

Justin Donald: Yeah. My experience and, by the way, I am very good about making sure that I’m seeing great doctors that are best in class and I can tell you that over years of my life, I’ve gotten my blood labs run and outside of one other time, which is just recent that you and I talked about, I have not had as thorough of a lab run as what you do and have discussed some of the levels. Like, some of the things that you discussed were foreign to me. I’d never heard them from any other doctor or any other lab technician going through various labs. And again, I try and do them once a quarter. So, I have ample opportunity to analyze labs. So, I just think if we can optimize health, if we can, first of all, you need the data to be able to make improvement, right? So, whatever you track, you can improve. If you’re not tracking it, you’re probably going to have a hard time improving it so you need the data. And then the frequency of that data I think is really, really important. And so, to do something quarterly I think is powerful. So, I love all the programs you’re doing. In fact, I love the programs you’re doing so much, The Lifestyle Investor Mastermind community, a portion of our community is coming out to your facility here in a few weeks, which we’re excited about. We’re going to do a session with you guys for the day. We’re going to do labs ahead of time. We’re to do a bunch of other cool things. So, I’d love for you to share just many of the cool programs, products that you have in your facility that people go through.

 

Regan Archibald: Well, and I can’t wait to have you guys, not only because I get to learn from you and there’s a couple of other friends that will be attending but really I love getting people together focused on health. And so, what we’re going to do is we’ll take everyone through our – we have biohacking. We have a whole biohacking room. So, we use PMF, we have the Halo device that people use, we use NanoVi. NanoVi is essentially it’s structured oxygen that gets rid of those misfolded proteins and oxidative stress in the body. A lot of UFC fighters use this for all the head trauma, NFL football players. So, every single person will go through that. We’re going to put Vitamin IVs and all of your mastermind attendees, everyone will get acupuncture. And then we’re going to have my favorite, which is a peptide party. So, I’ll be passing around some of my favorite peptides to get everybody’s brain in a creative state, to get people in a healing mode. And then I’ll also take a deep dive into what the lab markers mean because just like you when we went through your lab check, I had no idea what that marker is. And so, I try to explain it in a way that’s super simple but when I do it as a group, then everybody gets educated ten times better because other people are asking questions that you didn’t think to ask. And so, we’ll go through everybody’s labs one-on-one when they’re there as well. And so, it’s going to be a really fun experience.

 

Justin Donald: Oh, I love it. Well, I’m excited. And everything that you’re talking about here is becoming very mainstream. I mean, this is like in the gym that I work out in here in Austin, there is a peptide bar. There is like an IV room. There’s a company called Alive & Well that does a lot of this. And there are a bunch of companies out there that do it. I’m just friends with the founder and so they just do incredible work and all these different options, which is cool. And I just love seeing it being plugged into the facility. So, you have like a one-stop shop for everything, biohacking, everything, health, wellness, longevity. So, I think you’re doing it right. You’ve got a lot of people flying into your studio, your lab, your setup there, which is cool. And we are just thrilled to spend some time with you. So, hey, where can our audience learn more about you, Regan?

 

Regan Archibald: Easiest place is they can go to ThePeptideExpert.com and there we’ve got free downloads. So, if you love reading, I’ve got several books that I’ve written but we’ve got a free PDF of one of my books and then you’ll get my Fitness 50 at Age 100 tool. So, Dan Sullivan, he’s been a patient, a client of mine and I’m in his Lifetime Extender group but now it’s called the Age Reversal Future. But he asked me to create a tool called Fitness 50 at Age 100 and he said, “What do I need to be doing when I’m 100 that a fit 50-year-old can do?” And he’s 78 now, almost 79. And so, I put together based on research, 11 different exercises. And so, everyone in your group does get a free download of that so they can give themselves a grade to see if they’re in the fit, fitter, or fittest category. And if you’re under 50, then I’ve got my Fitness 25 at Age 50. So, Justin, I’ll be sending that one to you and then you can see what category you land in.

 

Justin Donald: Love it. Well, thank you so much. I appreciate you sharing so much advice, so much insight. There’s so much content around peptides, longevity, and labs, and just so much that very few people know a lot about. And I love ending every episode that I do in hopes that our audience will take some action today. So, I want to ask all of our listeners, all of you tuning in, watching us on YouTube, here’s my question for you. What’s one step that you can take today to move towards financial freedom and really towards living a life that you truly desire, one that’s on your terms not by default, but rather by design? Thanks so much and we’ll catch you next week.
