8 Life-Changing Biohacking Tools Created by and for Women

by health and nutrition advice journalist
One could argue that the biohacking sphere has felt tailored more towards men than women. The majority of biohacking tools, technology, and products are geared towards a male audience and most of the major players in the industry are men. But that’s starting to change. Women are an emerging market in the biohacking space. There are just as many women out there who want to hack their way to maximum human performance, and the biohacking industry is starting to take notice. Every day, more biohacking tools by and for women hit the market while more women take center stage as […]

Biohacking Tools You’ve Never Heard Of, Time-Hacked Workouts & More!

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Two years ago, in the post, “11 Indispensable Lessons I Learned From The Biohacker’s Handbook Of Exercise,” I introduced you to my biohacking friends from Finland – a pioneer of holistic medicine in Finland, human technology and self-quantification specialist, Teemu Arina; superfood hunter and nutritionist, Jaakko Halmetoja; as well as Dr. Olli Sovijärvi, MD. Then, just a few months ago, in the article “14 Biohacking Secrets I Discovered In The Brand New Biohacker’s Handbook,” I announced that their entire, 544-page “Biohacker’s Handbook”—an absolutely stellar read jam-packed with tips, tricks, and hacks I’d never before seen—had been released in the English […]

Biohacking: The Art and Science of Upgrading the Human Being

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Biohacking, defined as better living though science, technology, and nature, is quickly taking a front seat in the current global growing emerging technology and biotechnology trends. Biohacking is considered a fast track to upgrading one’s self.  Biohacking is all about making humans healthier, happier, and stronger with the vision of double humans’ potential lifespan. The term Biohacking is relatively new. It was coined by Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof Nutrition Inc., author, Silicon Valley investor, technology entrepreneur, and the Father of Biohacking.  According to Dave Asprey’s own definition and which was, by the way, incorporated to Merriam Webster’s in 2018, […]

How can we affect these systems to better manage our stress? Read on to […]

‘Bingeable,’ ‘biohacking’ and ‘fintech’ are now officially words

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Latest in Entertainment Merriam-Webster has added more than 840 new entries to its dictionary, a step in the continuous process of recording our ever-expanding language. Some, predictably, as fairly divisive. Everyone’s got that rando Instagram friend that’s too fond of the word adorbs, or who loves a bit of avo with their marg (margarita) at brunch. And we’ve all seen the memes lamenting the plight of the hangry. Technology obviously plays a driving role in new language, which is why predictive, haptics, biohacking and fintech have now joined the fold. Netflix is , Wikipedia is a time suck and Reddit […]

Is Biohacking Bad? Ancestral Living: Should We Return To Our Roots?

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Is Biohacking Bad? Ancestral Living Vs. Modern Science: Should We Return To Our Roots? My life is a little bit…strange. As an immersive journalist, self-experimenter and self-professed “biohacker”, I do relatively unconventional things to upgrade my body and brain. For example, I have this blood glucose monitor installed in my arm. It monitors my blood sugar 24-7. I wear a cognition-enhancing laser light helmet at work during the day and stand naked in front of a giant red light panel while I’m replying to emails. I give myself weekly IVs full of a cocktail of special vitamins. I’ve also had […]

Biohacking Teenager Slammed For Injecting Himself With DNA Containing Bible and Koran Verses – Faithwire

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Author A French teenager has injected himself with a DNA sequence he claims contained text from the Bible and Koran, prompting fierce criticism from those involved in the specialized science. Adrien Locatell, from Grenoble in France, translated the passages into DNA code in order to generate proteins that he could inject into his body. The experiment was not without grave risks, however. Void of any formal training as a geneticist, Locatelli risked doing serious harm to himself, particularly as he had no prior knowledge of the effects that the proteins would have on his body. The high-school student claimed that […]

California Passed the Country’s First Law to Prevent Genetic Biohacking

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Genetic engineering technologies are quickly becoming mature and cheap enough for people to start using them in their own homes. That’s got scientists and officials worried, and California has now passed the first bill aimed at restricting the sale of home gene therapy kits. Efforts to boost both the span of human life and the body’s capabilities have been around since the birth of medicine, but rapid progress in biotechnology in recent years has led to the emergence of a community of so-called “biohackers” eager to use these tools to enhance themselves. Biohacking simply means taking a DIY approach to […]
