When Dave Asprey, both an entrepreneur and a product of Silicon Valley, created the term ‘biohacking’ his intent was to transform his mind and body to be, well, superhuman. His experience in the tech industry led him to apply the same approach to building computer software to build a more highly functioning and healthier mind and body. He describes the term, biohacking, as a way of finding shortcuts to activate the brain’s response and recovery during and after fitness programs in order to achieve maximum results. Basically, he wants to help all of us be the best we can be with a little less effort by creating supplements and health regimens to support your physical and neurological health. In this modern day, where society breeds speed and expects you to keep up, we are all about trying Asprey’s life hacks to get us to the next level.
“If we want better outputs—to have more energy and focus, to be free of disease, to have a better memory, to perform optimally in business and athletics—then let’s tweak the things we put into our body and mind to stack the deck in our favor.” —Dave Asprey
From his infamous morning butter coffee routine that the health community has been buzzing about to his tricked out fitness and recovery facilities, Upgrade Labs, in Southern California, to his long list of powerful supplements to support us—these five products should be considered when evaluating your health and wellness goals for 2019.
1. Bulletproof Eye Armor
That darn blue light emanating from our smartphones, tablets, and computer screens may be more harmful than we think. According to Bulletproof’s research, this ‘junk light’ our eyes deal with every day causes us to strain our vision and weaken the tissue in our eyes. Eye Armor is a fan favorite for the staff at Bulletproof as it combats this unavoidable problem by strengthening our vision with a supplement made with Vitamin A and antioxidants to reduce sensitivity to glare and our ability to recover from all that screen time.

2. Neuromaster for Memory and Focus
Level up with the Neuromaster supplements for improved memory and focus. Using high-quality Arabica coffee fruit that has been shown to increase levels of BDNF (key neuro-proteins for neuron creation and health brain functions) and a natural caffeine that helps you start your day off with energy and focus—this brain support is a must for anyone looking to improve memory even as age works against us.
3. Brain Octane Oil
Brain Octane Oil is one of the key ingredients in Asprey’s Bulletproof coffee recipe. But what is it really? They use 100% pure coconut oil that is extracted from the nut, which provides a super powerful concentrate that can be added to your morning caffeine routine for optimal energy throughout the day. You may notice increased focus because your body is using the quality fats in the oil as fuel without breaking down glucose from sugars or carbs.
4. Collagen Peptides Protein Powder
Maintaining a beautiful brain is key but looking and feeling beautiful on the outside is important to bring a positive outlook and confident demeanor to the table each day. Adding the collagen peptide protein powder into your lifestyle may support healthy skin, hair, and nails. And because collagen makes up 25-30% of our bodies total protein, it is important to maintain good levels in order to have strong connective tissue throughout the entire body.
Bulletproof Collagen Protein comes from pasture-raised, hormone-free cows and is dairy and gluten-free.
5. Coconut Charcoal for Digestion
Activated charcoal has been recently popularized as it can be used in both beauty and skincare routines and makes for a killer teeth whitener. Bulletproof makes a coconut charcoal supplement that also helps with digestion and relief of unpleasant gas. By taking these supplements on a weekly basis, you may promote a healthy digestive system as the extracted coconut shells absorb toxins from unhealthy food and environmental pollutants in the body. It also relieves uncomfortable gas because the porous surface from the charcoal has a negative electric charge that attracts positively charged gas that is then carried easily out of the body.
