Dr Stephanie Venn-Watson: Cellular Health with Fatty15

View descriptionShare

Dr. Stephanie Venn-Watson dedicated her life to public health and veterinary epidemiology. In studying dolphins, she discovered the first essential fatty acid to be found in over 90 years – C15:0 (pentadecanoic acid). Dr. Stephanie’s discovery and further research on C15:0 has uncovered some amazing cellular health benefits and significant potential for disease prevention. With this knowledge, Dr. Stephanie pivoted and founded fatty15 - a company that produces the world’s first, and only science-backed, patented C15:0 supplement.

In today’s episode, we speak with Dr. Stephanie Venn-Watson about her latest research into the newly discovered essential fatty acid C15:0 and how supplementation with fatty15 could be a game-changer for cellular health.
