BIOptimizers - Awesome Health Podcast

Oct 27, 2022


The Energy Blueprint (TEB) system is a comprehensive lifestyle and supplement program which has helped more than two million people experience optimal health, better performance, and more energy. 

Ari Whitten is the founder of TEB and for more than 25 years he has been dedicated to the study of human health science. 

The blueprint includes programs and supplements to help you make the necessary changes to improve your energy levels. It also has a book called “Eat for Energy”, which focuses on how nutrition ties into mitochondrial health.

What are the consequences of poor gut health on human energy levels?

The human body is designed to produce abundant energy, but when something goes wrong with the mitochondria it can slow down or even shut off energy production. 

This can lead to a variety of health problems, including chronic fatigue, obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, brain fog, and depression.

To understand why this happens, we need to look at the mismatch between our modern lifestyle and what our biology is designed for. Our bodies are not well-adapted to:

  • Processed foods
  • Sedentary living
  • Artificial light exposure
  • And other aspects of the modern world. 

This mismatch can lead to a variety of physiological problems that result in low energy levels.

There are many things we can do to improve our gut health and address these mismatches. Eating a healthy diet, getting enough exercise, and reducing exposure to environmental toxins are all important steps in improving our overall health and restoring normal energy levels.

What is the difference between energy production and cellular defense?

The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell, responsible for energy production. However, they also have a second role that is just as important: cellular defense. 

The mitochondria are exquisitely sensitive environmental sensors, constantly taking samples of what is going on inside the body and determining if it is safe to produce energy. 

If they sense danger signals from various stressors like:

  • Poor nutrition
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Environmental toxicants
  • Psychological stress
  • Respiratory infections
  • Physical injuries
  • And overtraining

they will turn down the dial on energy production and shift resources towards cellular defense.

This process is akin to breaking a bone and getting a cast: the body will atrophy muscle tissue that isn't being used. 

In the same way, unless you give your body the signal that you need mitochondria to survive (through hormetic stress), they will atrophy. This decline in mitochondrial function has massive implications for your energy levels and many other 

How does bodybuilding compare to other forms of exercise?

Bodybuilding is a unique form of exercise that offers a variety of benefits compared to other forms of exercise. 

For one, bodybuilding helps to build muscle mass and decrease body fat, which can improve athletic performance. 

Additionally, bodybuilders gain a deep understanding of how the human body responds to different interventions through their personal experimentation with their own bodies. This knowledge is invaluable for health experts who want to optimize the human body for maximum benefit.


In this Podcast you will learn about:

  • What are some of the key drivers of chronic disease in the Western world?
  • What are some of the environmental factors that can impact how much energy is available to a person?
  • What is the best way to improve your sleep and how can you tell if you are not getting enough sleep?
  • How does one age beautifully and articulately?
  • What is the most important type of hormetic stress for maintaining a healthy pool of mitochondria?

And so much more.
