Today on the Optimal Performance Podcast, we have Cavin Balaster, who shares with us his knowledge on brain injuries. Seven years ago Cavin fell off of a water tower scaffolding and suffered a major brain injury that pinned the odds against him, but he went on to beat those odds and he is here to educate us. He informs us on certain types of nutrients that should be consumed by someone that has experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Tune in and listen to his stories ranging from his advice to clients, to him eating marijuana…? Enjoy. P.S.

NAD seems to be a super vitamin! I had no idea NAD could be delivered through IV and has such an impact on age reversal.
