Episode 116

Stress, heart disease and the effects of exercise/Scott Tindal

In this episode:

Stress has long been known to be an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease and is considered an important cause of morbidity and mortality. How psychological stress translates to physical disease has not been well understood though. New research suggests a mechanism for this connection and suggests how regular exercise may serve as a buffer of sorts, decreasing the impact of stress and improving long term outcomes. I review the evidence. Plus a conversation with the founder of nutrition app FuelIn, Scott Tindal. We chat about the importance of iron deficiency in athletes and whether or not supplementing with iron is a good idea.
