Supplementation is a big part of most people’s life, especially with everything that is going on in today’s world but, biohackers have always known the importance of looking after their body as a preventative and that’s why most of them take daily supplements.
This is one of the cheapest and most efficient ways to change your biology for the better from the inside.
It doesn’t just have to be your standard vitamins and minerals either! There’s all different types of products you can get, from oils for brain function to chewable gummies for sleep.
Whatever your loved one is looking to improve through supplementing, what better place to get the products from than the business owned by Dave Asprey, commonly known as the founding farther of biohacking.

Sleep is an extremely important part of living a healthy and optimal lifestyle and it’s not just about quantity but also quality, it’s not all about how much sleep you get, but instead it’s about how well you sleep.

If the person you love is quite invested in the biohacking world, they’re more than likely on a keto diet, carnivore diet or at least a low carb diet which means they’re probably going to be eating a lot of meat.

If the person you know is always feeling a bit to hyper before they go to bed it’s probably because they’ve been exposed to too much light, too late on in the day and it’s confusing their circadian rhythm Because it doesn’t know whether it is nighttime or daytime.
The reasons for this happening is probably due to them using electronic equipment that emits blue light later on in the day or it might simply be that the days are getting longer and the sun goes down later.
Obviously you can’t control the sun and our busy lives might require us to spend a little longer on our technology then we probably should, so what’s the solution?

This concept that derived from China is actually pretty old and was known as kaatsu but has been brought into the 21st century and western health and sports culture.
