We're all for optimization and pushing the limits of human potential.
And when that pursuit of better living leads us to methods that combine modern science with nature, we are all ears.
David Limacher sheds light (pun intended) on several of these lesser known winning combinations, or "biohacks".
Keep reading for some unconventional hacks to increase your vitality, energy, and wellness.
Meet David Limacher
After the success of our blog post on boosting mitochondria, we reached out to David Limacher to bring you more science-backed, nature-based performance upgrades.
We explore the impact of sunlight on hormones, sleep, growth, digestion, make a case for ditching sunglasses, and explain how eating eggs (yes, eggs) can optimize your sun exposure.
We investigate Elk Antler Velvet - from the advantages of modern elk "farming", to the ancient traditions of eating, even bathing in, elk antler velvet.
David shares tips for leveraging cold temperatures, trees, and other environmental factors that can boost wellness.
And we explore the benefits - and practicality - of eating foods that are native to your latitude and in season.
From staring at sunrises, to going shirtless in sub-freezing temperatures, to tree hugging and everything in between, David explains how we can all take cues from our own unique environment to create a "biohacking" routine customized to our geographic location.
