What you'll learn from this episode:

  • More than four percent of the world's population live with depression, with women, young people, and the elderly most prone to its disabling effects.

  • An estimated 322 million people suffered depressive disorders in 2015—a rise of about 18 percent in a decade.

  • Depression is the single largest contributor to years lived with disability.

  • A further 250 million people suffer from anxiety disorders, including phobias, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive behavior, and PTSD.

  • How research into psychedelics is finally advancing after decades in legal limbo to help all of these people.

  • And much more!

Nordic Naturals makes my favorite fish oil on the market—in fact, I like it so much I chew the capsules! Its high-potency products are tested for purity, are always super fresh, and always contain the superior triglyceride form of EPA and DHA fatty acids—equivalent to what you'd find in food!
