What is biohacking?

Our definition of biohacking is: manipulating the biochemical processes in your body to create the best version of yourself.

In practice, it means using food, habits, exercise, and technology that make you healthier. These are biohacks, a kind of trick that you can often implement with very little effort. You just need to know exactly how to use a biohack to get the best results. You can find an explanation of which biohacks exist, how to use them, and why they work in The Biohacker's Handbook.

The Biohacker's Handbook: a comprehensive guide for a better body and mind

The Biohacker's Handbook gives you a guide to 5 major areas where biohacking can greatly improve your performance: sleep, nutrition, athletic, professional, and cognitive performance.

Each chapter contains an introduction to the relevant biology, important points to watch out for, practical tips, and ready-to-use instructions for biohacking. You'll not only learn which biohacks are available to you, but also why they work and how you can adapt them to your situation.

This beautiful hardcover edition of the Biohacker's Handbook is 544 pages long, filled with helpful illustrations, and supported by 1,560 references. The book also contains links to additional online resources for more in-depth information.
