A lot of people drink coffee because they think it gives them energy. Cold showers help with blood flow. Cold showers can help overcome leaky brain syndrome. Cold showers can be used to help with the blood-brain barrier. Cryotherapy chambers can help with oxygen efficiency. Buteyko breathing can help relieve stress and anxiety. Box breathing can help maximize oxygen efficiency. A consistent workout is better than a varied workout in the long run.
We should eat vegetables and drink coffee enemas once a week because they help our bowels. We should also optimize peptides because they give us more energy. We should all be eating organ meet for maximum brain nutrition.
The ultimate biohacking guide is writen to guide you on your path of biohacking your biological age. We cover how to live healthy, how to hack your biological age, how to stay positive and happy and how to increase your engery levels naturally.
Ways to hack your biological age
I’m 25 years old, and I feel great! My biological age is much younger than my chronological age. I am healthy, fit and active. I eat well and exercise regularly. I handle stress very well.
Training up your weights-to-cardio ratio is important to maintaining a healthy and youthful body. Incorporating heavy weights into your workout routine burns more calories than cardio alone. Doing two or three weights sessions per cardio session keeps your muscles toned and strong.
HIIT and cardio sessions research shows that high intensity interval training (HIIT), slows cellular ageing while enhancing heart, lung and circulation health to keep you young. Cardio sessions such as spin class, sprints or crossfit classes will keep your weight low and strengthen your heart and lung. Yoga and other dynamic flexibility training style like animal flow incorporated into your workout routine is great for keeping your hips and joints open and flexible. We spend 8 hours of our day sitting in our desks which increases our biological age by eight year.
Walking is an excellent workout for people who work at desks. It helps you burn calories and reduce weight. You should walk every day for at least thirty minutes.
Moderation is the key to living according to Brigham Young University. Eating plants and antioxidants helps lower blood pressure. A plant-based diet promotes longevity. Dark green leafy veggies and colourful fruits are high in antioxidants and help you stay healthy.
Omega-3 fatty acids are great for keeping your cells young. Eating them helps prevent heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. A Mediterranean style diet is the healthiest option.
Adequate hydration is crucial to looking younger. Caffeine and alcohol dehydrate you. You need to get eight hours of sleep every night.
Set your alarm clock at the exact same time every day. This will eventually reset the body clock if you’ve experienced insomnia or other sleep problems. Sleep deprivation affects your decision-making, temper, and health. People who miss out on sleep tend to gain toxic visceral fat.
You should avoid using screens of any sort an hour before you go to bed. Screens emit a blue light that prevents the production of melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that regulates sleep cycles.
Mindfulness and meditation help you become more resilient to stress. You should never think in extremes or absolutes. This makes you stressed out.
Meditation helps people relax and reduces stress. Mind dumps are helpful because they allow you to release negative feelings. Writing down your thoughts and worries makes them less overwhelming.
Happiness is the most powerful thing we can think of. When we’re happy, we feel better physically and mentally. We can make ourselves happier by focusing on positive thoughts, feelings and experiences.
Nature’s the answer. Getting out into nature improves your health on all levels. Being in nature makes you happier, and it also fosters a spiritual connection with your natural environment. All of these contribute to becoming biologically younger.
Biohack your biological age from ancient wisdom to modern science
Ben is biologically 20 years old. He looks, feels, and acts like a 20 year old. He’s a personal trainer, and he runs races and crashes triathlons.
Ben Greenfield is a living testimonial to the power of ancestral wisdom and modern science. He has experimented with everything from drinking crushed insects to injecting stem cells into his body. Ben marries this firsthand knowledge with ancestral wisdom and modern scientific research to share with people around the world how they, as well, can live long, really unlimited lives.
Due to Ben’s breakthrough and intensive research, his content is loaded with stuff that you won’t likely hear about in biohackers podcast because here’s the deal: Ben takes it further than simply biohacking. Biological age and longevity aren’t merely measures of a well-cared-for physical body; they’re a product of your entire system—the health of your mind, your body, and, yes—even your spirit.
This is exactly why, during his speech, Ben Greenfield broke his tips from the trenches talk into three different sections: Mind, Body, Spirit. He dives deep, provides resources, and gets down to the nitty-gritty on all things well- being.
You’re going to be living longer than ever before!
Balance your neurotransmitters
Dopamine, serotonin, and GABA are neurotransmitters that help regulate moods. Acetylcholine is another neurotransmitter that regulates moods. Adding 100mg of Theanine to your coffee keeps caffeine from causing jitters and crashes. This also helps keep your neurotransmitters balanced.
Fix a leaky brain
Your blood-brain barrier keeps toxins and harmful chemicals out. You can do cold exposure to increase the permeability of your barrier. The effect is immediate.
Cold showers boost immunity, reduce body fat, increase cell longevity, and more. Ben recommends the 5 minute hot-cold contrast shower method. Stand completely under cold water for 20 secs, then turn the water hot for another 10 secs. Repeat 10 times, then you’ll be ready to take on the world!
Cold showers are great for your health. You should try them if you want to be healthy. Cryotherapy chambers are very expensive, but worth the money.
Breath control is very important for meditation. People who breathe rapidly are more likely to have a nervous or anxious mind. Calm breathing slows down your heart rate and reduces stress. Breathing deeply helps relax your muscles and improves concentration.
Deep breath in, then exhale slowly and deeply. This method helps you relax by reducing stress and anxiety. You should practice this technique regularly.
In the case of longevity, we want a high concentration of CO2 along with a high level of O2 in our body. We should breathe in a way that pushes oxygen into our tissues. This is called the Bohr effect. Buteyko Breathe teaches us how to retain a lot more CO2, and thus utilize a whole lot more oxygen. Box Breathing is very simple, yet extremely calming. You can do box breathing anywhere at your desk, while on a painful phone call, or even at an airport.
You need to practice breathing exercises to improve your health. Breathing properly helps you stay healthy.
Eat yourself smart
Ben talks about how you should avoid processed oils. He says that he would rather eat something sweet than oil. He recommends eating more natural foods.
Burpees, running, and making love are great ways to get fit. But if you’re using processed vegetable oil, then you’ll be shortening your life. Your cells need healthy fats to function properly.
Eat organ meats. Eating animal organ, such as cow heart, about once a week, is fantastic for your brain heath because you get nutrients like Vitamin B12 and Taurine, which are difficult to find in nature.”
Creatine is an amino acid found naturally in muscle tissue. It helps muscles recover after exercise by breaking down stored energy reserves into usable fuel. Taking creatine supplements increases the amount of creatine available to the body’s cells. This makes it easier for the body to use energy stores during physical activity.
Live with nootropics
Nootropics are super-serum-like substances that help boost cognition. Nicotine is a powerful stimulant that improves mental performance. Cigarettes are harmful because of the chemicals they contain. Smoking damages the brain.
Your head and brain
Ben Greenfield speaks about the latest technologies to fully upgrade and optimize our brains. He explains how to regulate our circadian rhythms and stay awake. He also talks about phototherapy devices that simulate the sun’s rays to keep us alert.
Ben suggests using a light spectrum device (like the HumanCharger) to charge your cells. He also mentions PEMF technology (Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields). Both technologies are very strange, but Ben says they’re both worth trying out.
Portable PEMF devices are used to charge the body’s cells. Hertz frequencies are used to relax the muscles.
Oxygen is essential for our brains. We need to get more oxygen into our bodies, but we also need to avoid getting too much oxygen. This is done by combining hypoxic and hyperoxic training. Live02 and training masks are two recommended devices for this purpose.
Sleep is important for the body and mind. Deep sleep is the deepest level of sleep. Deep sleep can’t really be measured by how long you slept or how much you slept. Rather, it is measured by how long your brain is in delta, its lowest and most relaxed brain wave state.
Red light at night helps you get better sleep. You can switch out the lights in your house to red light only. This will help you get better sleep.
Cannabis helps people fall asleep faster. However, cannabis use before bedtime can cause insomnia.
Deep tissue massages are great for relaxation. Using a foam roller or lacrosse ball will help you get better sleep. You can also use CBD oil to relax yourself before going to bed.
A fat burning machine
Ben’s “Gain-Busting” Fat Burning Routine is a strange but effective method of losing weight. He does this routine daily and burns off fat while he sleeps. The routine includes eating lots of vegetables and fruits, drinking plenty of water, and exercising.
Exercise while fasting helps you lose weight faster by burning more calories than if you were eating normally. You should try to get some sunlight during your workout.
Cold exposure is an effective method to burn fat. Caffeine enhances this process.
Coffee enemas are great for cleaning out your colon.
You can get a deep massage by using a glytamin suppository. Glytamins give your body a deep massage when you insert them into your rectum.
Deep tissue massage is used to treat muscle pain and tension. Massage therapy helps relax tense muscles and improves circulation. This device is used by doctors and therapists to help people who suffer from chronic back problems or other muscular issues. A biohacker can use this massage tool to improve blood flow and reduce stress.
Ben Greenfield gives some very shocking advice. He says that we shouldn’t worry too much about diets and health trend because everyone has a different gene variation. Everyone has a unique way of metabolizing sugars, fats, and protein, and people have different inflammatory and blood sugar responses to certain foods.
There is no one diet that works for everyone. Find out what diet works best for you. Learn more about gene testing and dietary recommendations from Dr. Ben Lynch’s podcasts and books.
Before eating, drink a glass of water or other beverage containing a digestive enzyme such as lemon juice, bitters, or digestif. This will help to lower and stabilize blood sugar levels.
Ben recommends mint, ginger, lemon, black pepper, bitter melon extract, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, berberine, chew thoroughly and mindfully.
Mindful eating means taking time to enjoy every bite. Eating slowly allows you to take in more nutrients. Exercise before and after meals. Explosive exercises help burn calories.
You should take walks every day to stay fit. Yoga is also helpful. You can also rest when you’re tired.
Peptides are used to help healing by enhancing the ability of cells to repair themselves. Injecting them into your skin sounds a little scary, but there are ways to do it safely. Ben had stem cell injections done on him.
Stem cells are the building blocks of our bodies. They are found in almost everything we see around us. They are also used to treat many diseases. Injecting stem cells into the body increases the number of these cells available to the body. This decreases the chance of getting sick or dying. There are two types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. Adult stem cells are found in the bone marrow, fat tissue, muscle, skin, blood, brain, and other organs. These cells are used to repair damaged tissues and replace dead cells. Embryonic stem cells are taken from an embryo before birth. They can be grown into any type of human tissue. They can be used to grow new organs for transplantation.
A hardy immune system is vital to a long, healthy lifespan. Kion Colostrums boosts immunity and helps you grow faster. It also calms your gut and makes you feel better overall.
A Myers’ Cocktail IV is a cocktail consisting of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other substances. Injecting these substances directly into the bloodstream allows the body to absorb more efficiently.
Low-level physical activity throughout day helps maintain lymph flow. Ben bounces on a mini trampolines when he feels stiff. He does light mobility training whenever he feels stiff.
Ben uses Dragon Dictation to record himself talking while moving around freely. He works in an office setting, and needs to be mobile while working. He records himself speaking while he walks around freely.
Balance devices help activate both sides of the brain. You should use them while working to stay focused.
Become a supermodel
Clay masks are great for keeping your skin smooth and soft. You should use them once a week.
Supermodels use weekly clay masks to intensify their glow, youthfulness, firmness, and remove any harmful toxins. They recommend the anti aging supplement Alitura Supplement 20 – 40 grams of collagen per day to keep their bodies strong, supple, young. As they age, their bodies’ natural production of collagen decreases, but they can help prevent this by taking supplements such as Alitura Supplement 20 – 40 grams of collagen per week.
For anti aging benefits, you should try golf ball rolling. Have a look at the supermodels. You’ll see that most of them have perfect posture and symmetrical bodies. Golf ball rolling helps to improve posture and body symmetry.
Golf balls help you maintain a good posture. You should always be aware of how your feet feel when walking around. Your feet need to be strong and stable if you want to avoid injury. Roll a golf ball under your work table or desk and walk across it every time you sit down.
Utilize the biology of belief
Your beliefs determine your biology. Your beliefs affect your overall health and well being. Your beliefs affect your longevity. Your beliefs affect your reality.
Heal with sound
We all love music and we all know how amazing it is. Music affects us emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Music also affects other people around us. It can even help them feel better. Check out this article by Ben on sound healing Carry a Lover Tuner. You can carry a portable Lover Tuner with you and blow into it to create a 520Hz frequency to enhance your ability of expressing love.
Wholetones music project is an amazing series of beats that can help you heal your body and get rid of bad habits. You can download a sound healing app to help you improve focus and meditation.
Socializing with others helps you feel better about yourself. You should spend time with your family, friends, and loved ones. You should read books that help you improve your life.
The major theories of aging
There are three major theories of aging. The first theory says that aging is caused by wear and tear. When something wears out, it becomes weaker and eventually breaks down. Aging is inevitable.
The second theory says that aging is due to damage from past events. For example, if you were hit by a car when you were young, then you will probably develop arthritis as you grow older.
The third theory says that aging is programmed into our genes. If you inherit certain genes, then you are likely to experience accelerated aging.
Aging is not inevitable. In fact, it is possible to live longer without getting sick or dying. How? By using biohacking techniques and lifestyle changes.
Let’s have a closer look how you can hack your biological age with these three major theories of aging: the mitochondrial theory of aging, the oxidative stress theory of aging, and the sirtuin theory of aging.
The mitochondrial theory of aging
Mitochondria are tiny organelles inside cells that produce energy. These organelles contain their own DNA which codes for proteins needed to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
When mitochondria lose some of their DNA, they become damaged. Damaged mitochondria cannot produce enough energy. As a result, cells begin to die.
When we age, our bodies start to accumulate damaged mitochondria. Eventually, all of the cells in our bodies will stop working properly.
Dr. Brian Dixon, explains the mitochondiral theory of aging : “We are born with an average number of functional mitochondria. Over time, we lose them at a rate proportional to our age.”
If you want to stay healthy, you need to keep your mitochondrial count high.
The oxidative stress theory of aging
Oxidative stress occurs when cells generate too much reactive oxygen species (ROS) compared to antioxidants. ROS are molecules containing oxygen that cause oxidation reactions.
Antioxidants neutralize ROS. Antioxidant levels decline with age. This causes oxidative stress, which damages cell structures.
As a result, cells begin degenerating. They can no longer function properly.
Dr. Oz explains how oxidative stress leads to cellular dysfunction: “Our body produces a lot of free radicals as part of its normal metabolic processes. But these free radicals also attack the cell’s DNA, causing mutations that lead to disease.
Dr. Brian Dixon explains the oxidative stress theory of aging : “Free radicals are produced naturally within our bodies. Our immune system fights off infections and cancer cells by producing free radicals.
But over time, our immune systems weaken and become less effective. Free radicals increase in our bodies as we get older.
The sirtuin theory of aging
Sirtuins are enzymes that regulate gene expression. They help repair damaged DNA.
They also slow down the aging process. There are seven sirtuins in humans.
Sirtuin 1 regulates metabolism. It helps us burn fat more efficiently.
Sirtuin 2 slows down aging. It protects cells against free radical damage.
Sirtuin 3 increases longevity. It helps protect cells from DNA damage.
Sirtulin 4 reduces inflammation. It helps prevent heart attacks and strokes.
Sirtuin 5 improves brain health. It helps maintain memory.
Sirtuln 6 prevents muscle wasting. It helps people avoid sarcopenia.
Sirtuin 7 controls blood sugar levels. It helps reduce diabetes risk.
Sirtuins have been shown to extend lifespan in several organisms including yeast, worms, flies, mice, and rats.
Dr. Brian Dixon explains the sirtuin theory of aging : “Sirtuins control many different aspects of human biology. They affect everything from metabolism to immunity.
Sirtuinis may be able to delay aging and even reverse it.
