What Does Joe Rogan Take?

Who Is He?

Joe Rogan is most known for being a television host. He hosted Fear Factor from 2001 to 2006 and I think it’s safe to say it’s the show that gave him his name. Millions watched Fear Factor. It was hard to not watch people do crazy things over and over again! However, before Rogan moved to Los Angeles and began his career in the entertainment business, he was quite the athlete back home. He learned martial arts as a teenager in Massachusetts and earned a black belt in Taekwondo, where he became a US champion. He ended up pursuing a career in the entertainment industry, landing stand up comedy gigs in the Boston area until he eventually moved to Los Angeles and his career continued to sky rocket. Rogan hosted many shows, had a few of his own shows, guest starred on some others, and  made a name for himself.

Around 2009 Joe Rogan’s career took a turn in a new direction and he has been taking over the bodybuilding and fighting world ever since. Now a trained UFC fighter with the body of Workout Barbie Ken, Joe Rogan is not someone you’d want to pick a fight with.

Joe Rogan is not shy when it comes to sharing his  love for health, fitness, and wellness. He has become strong, healthy, successful and most certainly influential. He shares his supplement, vitamin, and workout secrets on his free podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience. We’ve been listening to quite a few of them and we thought he would be an excellent person to dig a little deeper on. To really find out, What Does Joe Rogan Take?

Joe Rogan’s list is long. It’s actually really long. This guy doesn’t mess around.

Here’s what this super man takes…

He takes two supplements  to increase testosterone levels. They are…

Xtreme Nitro:

Xtreme Nitro is an all natural supplement that boosts testosterone levels. This supplement is key for Rogan because UFC has banned testosterone replacement therapy. He says that he has been taking Xtreme Nitro along with another testosterone boosting supplement since replacement therapy was banned and he’s very satisfied with the results. This supplement has been clinically proven to:

  • Boost testosterone levels
  • Shorten recovery time

  • Enhance sexual performance

Alpha F1:

Alpha F1 is the other testosterone boosting supplement that  Rogan swears by. It has been clinically proven to:

  • Maximize sexual stamina

Alpha Brain:

Joe Rogan raves about Alpha Brain. It was created by the vitamin and supplement company Onnit. It is clinically shown to help healthy and driven individuals because it:

  • Supports memory
  • Promotes focus
  • Increases processing speed

It’s made with earth grown ingredients such as Bacopa Monniera, Cat’s Claw, Huperzia Serrata, Oat Straw, and more. Rogan swears by this vitamin and frequently discusses it on his podcasts. He was quoted in a video for The Joe Rogan Experience saying:

“Vitamins work and they help your body. They help keep you tuned and functioning at a high level. There’s vitamins for your mind too and that’s what alpha brain does. They’re all vitamins that have been clinically proven to help brain function. I think they work great.”

The Vitamin Shoppe – From The Earth Multivitamin (No-Iron):

Joe Rogan takes a daily multivitamin. Are you surprised? We’re not! Anyone who cares about their health and diet should be taking a multivitamin. Why not fill in any gaps with one easy to take pill? The Vitamin Shoppe makes a multivitamin called From The Earth and it’s made with whole food nutrients which:

  • Boosts immune system levels
  • Increases energy production,
  • Provides your body with powerful antioxidants

This one may seem simple, but Rogan understands its importance.

Fish Oil:

Rogan was quoted in a video in which he discusses his daily vitamins saying that he takes 10 fish oil pills a day. TEN! It makes sense. Fish oil has been clinically proven to:

  • Support healthy cholesterol levels
  • Boost mood levels
  • Help maintain strong bones


Rogan takes a spirulina supplement every day because of its impressive nature. Spirulina is a great source of other nutrients. It contains vitamins B-1 (thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (nicotinamide), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin A, and vitamin E. It’s also an excellent source of potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc, and so much more. With all of these wonderful properties, spirulina is clinically proven to:

  • Boost immune system levels
  • Promote eye health
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Ease PMS symptoms
  • Improve digestive system
  • Help the body detox naturally


Chlorella is a vitamin that tends to get overlooked. Onnit, the company that makes Alpha Brain, makes a spirulina and chlorella vitamin that Joe Rogan often discusses in his podcasts. Together the two are unbeatable. Chlorella is clinically proven to:

  • Strengthen immune system
  • Stimulate red blood cell production
  • Aid in muscle growth

Super C Complex:

Vitamin C is key for anyone with an active lifestyle and Rogan is definitely an active man. Whether he’s working, exercising, or fighting, he’s always moving. Vitamin C is crucial for losing fat, building muscle, or both! Vitamin C is clinically proven to:

  • Protect from free radical damage. (Free radicals are metabolical waste products that attack cells during weight training)
  • Reduce cortisol production
  • Strengthen immune system
  • Help with muscular soreness
  • Increase iron absorption
  • Help create natural steroid hormones


Joe Rogan takes glucosamine during his workout sessions to help with his joints. He doesn’t leave anything out when it comes to supplementing. Glucosamine is meant to increase the cartilage and fluid surrounding joints. It also helps prevent the breakdown of these substances. Glucosamine has been proven to:

  • Help improve joint health
  • Aid in the fight against osteoarthritis
  • Improve digestion
  • Ease inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Relieve symptoms of TMJ
  • Alleviate bone pain

Vitamin D:

Vitamin D, or the sunshine vitamin, fills in any vitamin D gaps in our bodies. We normally get it from the sun, but sometimes we just can’t get enough! The vitamin is produced in our skin in response to sunlight. It’s a fat soluble vitamin in a family of compounds. It includes vitamin D-1, D-2, and D-3. It has a long list of health benefits but the most known/important is its ability to regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorous and facilitates normal immune system function.

Rogan is a bodybuilder, which means he intakes a very high amount of calcium and phosphorus. He understands the incredible importance of vitamin D and he makes sure to take the vitamin every single day. Vitamin D has been scientifically proven to:

  • Promote healthy and stronger bones
  • Improve muscle function
  • Protect against cardiovascular disease
  • Decrease risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Reduce risk of cancer
  • Fight depression
  • Boost weight loss

Stress B-Complex:

Rogan swears by a Stress B-Complex vitamin. The vitamin is made by many companies and aims to de-stress people in a natural and positive way. It uses B vitamins, vitamin C, zinc, and vitamin E to bring you the best possible results.

When working hard to keep your body healthy, working a job, and basically just having a life are combined, things can get a little stressful. That’s why Rogan takes a Stress B-Complex. The vitamin is scientifically proven to:

  • Increase energy production
  • Promote immune system support
  • Increase overall feeling of well being


Niacin is a B vitamin that Rogan discusses in his podcasts. He explains that he takes it before bed and it’s part of his daily routine. Having enough niacin, or vitamin B3, is extremely important to maintain good health. Niacin has been scientifically proven to:

  • Support normal cholesterol levels
  • Promote cardiovascular function
  • Support nervous system function


A Multi-Enzyme supplement is a full enzyme spectrum formula that’s mainly used to support digestion. Enzymes are chemicals that speed up the chemical reactions in the body and break down the food in your digestive system so that you can properly absorb nutrients. They also support protein, carbohydrate, and fat digestion. These nutrients promote health and wellness and Rogan understands the importance of that.

A Multi-Enzyme will:

  • Break down food in body
  • Maximize body’s nutrient intake
  • Helps with pancreatic insufficiency
  • Helps with lactose intolerance
  • Helps ease discomfort from high fiber diets

Rogan has also been known to discuss the benefits of L-Lysine, E3, garlic, Saw Palmetto, Jack 3D, and amino acids. Maybe we should all take a hint from this man!
