#072: enfinity PARAXANTHINE! Raza Bashir (MuscleTech) and Shawn Wells (Ingenious Ingredients)

The PricePlow Podcast

https://blog.priceplow.com/podcast/raza-bashir-shawn-wells-muscletech-enfinity-paraxanthine-072In late August of 2022, PricePlow revealed the next-generation stimulatory ingredient enfinity (Paraxanthine), set to launch shortly afterward through MuscleTech. We wrote about the new product line and briefly introduced paraxanthine to readers in our article titled MuscleTech Reveals New Workout Stimulant: enfinity brand Paraxanthine.To follow-up with more scientific information, we brought Raza Bashir (VP of Scientific Affairs and Product Innovation at Iovate and MuscleTech) and Shawn Wells (Chief Science Officer of NNB Nutrition and Co-Founder of Ingenious Ingredients) on to the PricePlow Podcast to explain Shawn's latest innovation in enfinity brand paraxanthine. We then discuss how MuscleTech is using it to power cleaner, more consistent workouts and diet support through a new pre-workout supplement and two weight loss products.The MuscleTech iQ SeriesMuscleTech's Raza Bashir and Ingenious Ingredients (and NNB Nutrition CSO) Shawn Wells join the PricePlow Podcast to talk about MuscleTech's new iQ Series launch, using enfinity Paraxanthine!MuscleTech is going all-in on this ingredient, and through the episode, you'll learn how Raza has been "hoarding" much of the stimulant for the better part of four years. Once you try it, you'll understand why - for many users, it's simply a better experience than caffeine.Finally, enfinity is ready for primetime, starting with three supplement launches covered in our introductory MuscleTech iQ Series article: EuphoriQ: Pre-workout supplement using 300 milligrams of enfinity Burn iQ: Capsule fat burner using 100 milligrams of enfinity per capsule Burn iQ Powder: Thermogenic fat loss powder using 150 milligrams enfinity per scoopMuscleTech is using the moniker iQ, stating that this is the smartest way to supplement your energy. After learning more about paraxanthine's differences from caffeine, there's a good chance you'll agree -- or at least understand why many users will like it more.Finally, this is a follow-up from Episode #048 of the PricePlow Podcast, where Shawn teased the ingredient a bit over a year ago. It's finally here and upon us, so listen or watch and enjoy:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W0m3GNPc4EAudio Version:Subscribe to the PricePlow Podcast on Your Favorite ServiceiTunesSpotifyGoogle PodcastsSoundCloudRaza Bashir and Shawn Wells Discuss Paraxanthine and enfinity-Powered EuphoriQ00:00 - Introductions - Mike introduces Raza and Shawn and gives the overview -- MuscleTech's new iQ Series will have enfinity brand paraxanthine, and quickly flashes back to Episode #048, where Shawn teased it over a year ago. 03:00 - Shawn talks about the omnipresence of caffeine - a one trillion dollar market. He talks about how it's effective and important, mentioning that it fueled the industrial revolution. Many switched from alcohol to caffeine back then, with far more productive effects on society.Additionally, we meet and socialize with two substances: alcohol and caffeine. 05:20 - "What enfinity, what paraxanthine solves: For about 59% of the population, they are not fast metabolizers. Meaning they are not metabolizing caffeine well. And so what happens is, they're stuck more in a state of caffeine, versus going to paraxanthine, which is where you see a majority of the benefits. And you're avoiding these other metabolites of theophylline and theobromine, and theophylline in particular -- side effect ridden." Shawn continues that there are more stages of metabolites after those two, and by avoiding them, you remove a lot of the longer-lasting side effects. 06:20 - "The net effect, when you just go to paraxanthine, in and of itself, is a much cleaner experience. And this is true across the board. And not only is it a cleaner experience, but we're avoiding that bio-individuality."

Shawn Wells | The Energy Formula: Six Life Changing Ingredients to Unleash Your Limitless Potential KKP: 462

The Keto Kamp Podcast With Ben Azadi

Today, I am blessed to have Shawn Wells, MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN join the show. He is a product formulator and expert in performance nutrition, longevity, fitness, and supplementation. This episode originally aired on April 16th 2021. This is a re-release due to popular demand.  He earned his master’s degree from UNC-Chapel Hill, where he studied nutritional biochemistry with a minor in exercise science. Shawn is a Registered Dietitian with a decade of experience as a Chief Clinical Dietitian in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. He is also a Certified Sports Nutritionist and has worked with celebrity clients and professional athletes. On the road to being dubbed “The World’s Greatest Formulator”, Biohacktivitst, and Keto Authority, Shawn faced and overcame significant obstacles with his own health—weight issues, depression, autoimmune conditions (Epstein-Barr, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), two cervical discs replacements, and a pituitary adenoma, which is a type of brain tumor. They say everything happens for a reason, and in Shawn’s case, his health problems led him down a winding path that required him to find science-based solutions, and they sparked his personal passion for biohacking. In this episode, Shawn Wells opens the show by diving straight into his story. After finding his passion for supplements, Shawn went through massive ups and downs to get him where he is today. Eventually, Shawn found keto, and the rest is history! He reveals the common mistakes that people make when first trying keto. Of course, we dig deep into supplements and talk about one of Shawn's favorites – dihydroberberine; it's a total game-changer. Tune in as we chat about Shawn's book and the importance of "exercise snacks."

Shawn ended up getting really into supplements. He would take supplements, work out and see all these changes in his body. Eventually, Shawn realized he needs to chase his dreams of being a formulator and working with athletes. So, Shawn told his counselor about his new dreams – he laughed at Shawn. Later that night, Shawn almost committed suicide because his dreams had been totally crushed. Eventually, Shawn got into his dream school and pursued his goals despite what his counselor told him. During this work, Shawn’s autoimmune system exploded; he had loads of issues. However, Shawn found keto, and it changed his life forever. [16:15] Common Mistakes That People Make When Trying Keto A lot of people try dirty keto by drinking diet sodas and using artificial sweeteners. Making your own keto desserts is another mistake. Also, many people think they can eat out and still eat keto. Shawn says he would try and eat Burger King while following the keto diet. Eating too much protein can be a mistake for people. Instead, think about eating more fat. That way, you feel full faster. The higher your ketones get, the more you will struggle to eat. If women can’t get into ketosis, Shawn says to try a period of strict keto. Down the road, you can play with net carbs. [23:20] Why Dihydroberberine Is A Total Game-Changer For Anti-Aging Metformin is the most powerful anti-aging agent that we have ever seen. People have been taking it for twenty years. In 90 days, people's biomarkers looked like there was an improvement of two years of longevity after using metformin. Dihydroberberine is the active metabolite of berberine. It is five to ten times more bioavailable. It doesn’t have the GI distress that metformin has. Plus, dihydroberberine lasts twice as long in the plasma. For keto and anti-aging, dihydroberberine is powerful!

In Shawn’s book, The ENERGY Formula, there’s a story about the importance of self-love and community. Shawn uses the word biohacking because people connect with it. However, Shawn knows there is no quick fix. We need a solid foundation of self-love and community. Then, we can use things for resilience and optimization. Find more ways to fall in love with yourself. That way, you can find your greatest potential. Get The ENERGY Formula: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08SCM7MHB/benazadi-20 [40:40] Shawn’s Favorite Benefits of “Exercise Snacks” (Sounds Great, Right?) Relationships are the number one predictor of longevity. Another predictor of longevity is grip strength. Take time to invest in your body. When you invest in your body, you have time for nutrition, meditation, and all these other things. A firm handshake will predict how long you live. The body in motion stays in motion. Find ways to exercise! Small exercises throughout the day have a greater impact on your health than one hour of exercise. Break up your periods of being sedentary with “exercise snacks.” AND MUCH MORE!
