Biohacks to Increase Your Energy and Feel Fantastic

If you've been poking around in the health and fitness world, you've probably heard of biohacking. Maybe you're a biohacker yourself, or maybe you're a complete novice.  Biohacking approaches health from the standpoint of bettering yourself with effective and practical advice. As opposed to our tendency to only deal with health when it becomes problematic.  Biohacking has somewhat of a reputation of being nerdy and expensive, but I assure you there are a lot of biohacks that are accessible, affordable, and some are even completely free.  
Biohacking is simply the process of making impactful changes to "hack" your body's biology, especially your energy levels. Two of the primary ways you can biohack your body are by:
  1. Reducing inflammation so your body can run more smoothly
  2. Supporting your mitochondria
Your mitochondria are your cells energy powerhouses, and anything you can do to give your mitochondria boost translates into more overall energy. There are many other ways you can biohack your body beyond these, those are just two important mechanisms.  An important aspect of biohacking is that it really emphasizes our individuality. Biohackers tend to view their body as an experiment. They encourage each other to try different techniques to see what works for them.

Did You Know
Synthetic Scents Cause Cancer, Asthma, Kidney Damage and More

A National Academy of Sciences points out some vital facts: About 95 percent of chemicals used in synthetic fragrances are derived from petroleum (crude oil). They include benzene derivatives (carcinogenic), aldehydes, toluene and many other known toxic chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, central nervous system disorders and allergic reactions.  Unfortunately, 30 years later, toxic ingredients continue turn up in products we use and breathe in on a daily basis. Some of the worst toxic ingredients used in lotions, shampoos, laundry detergents, cleaning products and so much more include synthetic scents, often listed as on labels as the elusive "fragrance." And many on the list are known or suspected  endocrine disruptors , compounds that tinker with hormonal health that can trigger weight gain and even set you up for diseases decades down the line.

When a company puts "fragrance" on the label, don't be tricked. This is a catch-all term actually can stand for thousands of different ingredients (literally, at least 3,000). And when you use a product containing "fragrance" or "parfum," all of those mysterious ingredients are absorbed right into your bloodstream. These ingredients are predominantly made from chemicals and are just outright toxic for your health in so many ways.
