What is Biohacking?
Biohacking is the process of making changes to your lifestyle in order to “hack” your body’s biology and feel your best. Biohacking is improving the health of your body using external tools, and the term is gaining popularity as part of an increasing move toward improving health and wellness.

What is Bulletproof Coffee?
The term seems quite brutal, but what may be more brutal is what is in the coffee we usually drink and how it is made.
Bulletproof coffee is a type of coffee used to enhance cognitive abilities. Concentration, attention, focus, and intelligence are all cognitive abilities that affect the performance of our social and professional lives. Bulletproof coffee is one way to enhance that performance and stay alert in all situations.
Bulletproof coffee is becoming increasingly popular among athletes and business people to improve their cognitive abilities and attain higher levels of energy.
The magic ingredient in bulletproof coffee is unsalted grass-fed butter.
Yep, this coffee has butter in it, but it also has the highest performance and lowest toxin level. It has all the benefits of healthy milk fats without the denatured casein proteins found in cream.
How to Make Bulletproof Coffee
Here is a simple recipe for bulletproof coffee for improved cognitive abilities and energy.
- Bulletproof coffee beans
- Unsalted grass-fed butter
- Brain octane oil
- Coconut oil
Using filtered water, brew 1 cup of coffee just off the boil along with 2½ tablespoons of bulletproof coffee beans that have been freshly ground using a French press. Gradually add about 2 tablespoons of brain octane oil to the hot coffee. Brain octane is strong, so do not add it all at once. Follow with 1–2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter.
If you do not have unsalted grass-fed better you can use grass-fed ghee.
Blend until it is frothy for 20-30 seconds.
