    Thanks for the great podcast Dave. Regarding rhodiola rosea, what brand do you recommend?

    • Dr. Josh Axe

      I recommend Gaia.

    Brisling sardines (Scotland / Norway) or Chub Mackerel (Portugal)?

    one better than the other? Less mercury in these sardines because they’re smaller / younger than the mackerel?

    Terrific podcast, very thorough. As a chef, I’m very concerned with provenance of fish and tend to agree with you both on Farm Raised versus Wild Harvest fish in 99% of the cases. There are, however, a few responsible fish farms that are trying as best as possible to mirror the natural ecosystem and raise fish in a way that is both environmentally sustainable AND completely natural and healthy. The problem is that the fishing industry, both wild harvest and aquaculture, are a bit of the Wild West with very few regulations and labels of origin being sketchy at best. Industrial farming is unethical, regardless of whether it’s commodity beef or factory fish, however we are often quick to laud our pioneering small farmers (and rightfully so, Alder Springs beef is truly amazing!) but we are quick to condemn farmed fish, mostly because there’s not that much availability of ethically farmed fish, however such farms do exist!

    The folks at Veta la Palma in Southern Spain are an example of a sustainable and ethical way of raising fish for food consumption, here’s a great talk by my friend Dan Barber telling his story of falling in love with the fish of Veta la Palma:


    This is a far-cry from the poo-laden shrimp ponds of South East Asia where the majority of the worlds shrimp is raised. Thanks for all the great content!

    So what are the best probiotics to buy?

  • Just listened this morning at the gym, thanks! Could Dr Axe, Dave or anyone suggest a probiotics source (made in Europe) if possible? best from Madrid, D
