Dr Stephanie Venn-Watson and. husband physician Dr Eric Venn-Watson are one hell of a dynamic duo out to save the planet one person at a time and they started out by helping dolphins live longer. What started as a surprising discovery to protect dolphins' health has become a growing movement to restore our body's C15:0 levels, support our long-term health, and perhaps even slow aging.
The groundbreaking discoveries around C15:0's healthy aging benefits have been featured as a TEDx talk, a Fast Company World Changing Idea, and now––a shout out in The New York Times Science section!
Amazing! Wait - what is C15:0?
Well in this episode we dive into just that very topic.
C15:0 (aka pentadecanoic acid) is a healthy, odd-chain saturated fatty acid naturally found in whole fat dairy, as well as some fish and plants. C15:0 is the first essential fatty acid to be discovered since omega-3, which was over 90 years ago. Because pure C15:0 has been shown to have 3x the cellular benefits of the highest performing omega-3, C15:0 is emerging as the essential, essential fatty acid.
Numerous peer-reviewed studies have shown that people with higher C15:0 levels have better metabolic, heart, immune and liver health. Unfortunately, our C15:0 levels naturally decline as we age.
But I thought fats were bad?
Society spent a generation avoiding fat.
But what does the science say?
Join us in. this episode to find out why your cells will age slower with Fatty15.
