SET FOR SET predicts biohacking will become one of the hottest fields

Tech millionaire Brian Johnson continues to make news in the fitness world as we all follow his attempts to reverse the aging process. He has made headlines for his controversial and persistent attempts at immortality, and is often called a "biohacker."

The fitness experts at SET FOR SET predict that "biohacking" will be one of the hottest trends in 2024 and share 10 ways to "biohack" for a longer, healthier life.

The Snapshot

For those inspired by Bryan Johnson's "Project Blueprint," consider the following "biohacks":

Ice Immersion — Cold immersion is an aspect of cold water therapy, or cold water immersion, that involves immersing your body in freezing temperatures. This activity helps reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and promote post-exercise recovery. It has also been shown to strengthen the immune system, improve sleep quality, and aid in stress management.

Optimize Sleep — Around seven to nine hours of sleep will promote muscle growth and repair, help keep the brain alert, and improve blood sugar levels.
Regular Sauna – Sauna is good for cardiovascular health. When exposed to high temperatures, the body cools itself by increasing heart rate, blood flow, and cardiac output. This is known to lower blood pressure.

Himalayan Salt in Water – Electrolyte levels help balance the amount of water in the body, balance acid/base (pH) levels and transfer nutrients into cells. Mineral-rich Himalayan salt contains high amounts of electrolytes, which are proven to help detoxify the body and support kidney and liver function.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy — Testosterone replacement therapy can improve energy levels, and libido, increase bone density, muscle mass, and insulin sensitivity, and generally improve mood.

Intermittent Fasting – Several changes occur in the body after fasting is completed. These include lowered blood insulin levels, increased human growth hormone, and cellular repair (the body's removal of waste products from cells).
Moderate coffee intake – Low to moderate doses of caffeine (50-300 mg) have been shown to increase alertness, energy, and the ability to focus. Both regular and decaffeinated coffee have protective effects on the liver.

Regular Blood Tests — Blood tests can check blood sugar, calcium, cholesterol and electrolyte levels and measure kidney function. These signs can help monitor your risk for heart disease, circulatory disease, and diabetes.
Breathing – Through breathing exercises, you can train your body to automatically control your breathing and use it as a calming tool during times of stress.

Red Light Therapy – This is a popular method used to optimize overall skin health. Red light therapy also helps promote muscle recovery, reduce pain and inflammation, support nervous system health, and generally increase energy levels.

The Lesson

So is “biohacking” right for you? The techniques aren't too outrageous, but Brian Johnson's "Project Blueprint" is a whole different world.

"The 46-year-old millionaire spends $2 million a year fighting the aging process. He follows a strict diet every day, consuming 2,250 calories in 6 hours. He also exercises for an hour every day, consumes 111 daily nutritional supplements, and has A strict bedtime routine, regular blood transfusions, and daily health checkups. He reportedly consumes 80 vitamins and minerals daily and eats 70 pounds of pureed vegetables a month. His skin care regimen includes CeraVe Acne Control Cleanser, which retails for $14.99, and microdose Accutane, a retinoid drug used to treat severe acne, in two 40-milligram tablets per week,” a spokesperson for SET FOR SET said.

This is extreme, but "biohacking" doesn't need to be. It's really about taking your health and wellness to the next level, "hacking" your body to live a healthier life, both physically and mentally, by understanding and engaging with health on a near biological level. Feel your absolute best.

While it may sound like too much work or something reserved for the elite with lots of time, it's very easy to incorporate biohacking into your daily life. You may already be biohacking without even realizing it.
