    Hello Ben,

    I had a couple of questions over Episode #465 related to the jetlag part.
    1. In regards to radiation, could C60 be a more potent antioxidant than the mentioned vitamins? (Ian Mitchel’s for example)
    2. In regards to fatigue from jetlag, I’ve heard that Creatine is used for sleep depravation tiredness, could it also help circadian rhythm offset? Its basically the same thing. (Kion of course)

    Best Regards

    maybe worth mentioning that isometrics can be used to keep muscle mass, even in calorie-deficit state it’s possible to gain more

    Long time listener since 2014 days! I learned so much from your early days of triathlon training and really documented first hand approach to performance and health. A few years back I felt the quality of your show start lacking in audio and the guests and topics you had were very out of touch for average income/athlete population. Recently you did an amazing Q+A and episode 465 felt like the old days. Love just hearing your brilliant thought on stuff! More like that again please!

    C60 ticks all the boxes for mitigating the various harmful effects of air travel
