Have you ever heard about biohacking? Or Bullet Proof Coffee? This is the perfect term to describe my life. I am always looking for ways to have more energy, vitality, stable-happy moods, and creativity. Bio hacking does just that… it uses certain foods and supplements that radically change your mind and body, for the better.
There are four areas I like to address in bio hacking:
In that order 😉
Let’s talk about biohacking food.
I am not going to go into what an energy enhancing, disease fighting, mood balancing, clear thinking diet looks like: I do over that here, and here.
TAKEAWAY: There are certain foods and supplements that you can add on top of what you are already having to take your health to the next level. Simply add these three foods to a smoothie/water/juice etc.
A Few Bio-hacking Foods
High quality collagen or gelatin is such an easy food to add to your daily diet with incredible benefits. Yes, this is the stuff you make Jello with BUT it is the quality and brand that matters with this. This stuff is an amazing hack for better skin, hair, and nails! Not to mention balancing hormones and mood.
Here are just a few other health benefits:
- Reduces cellulite
- Improves bone density
- Reduces and reverses gum recession
- Boost joint health and dramatically reduces joint pain
- Noticeably stronger nails
- Clearer skin and less wrinkles (as it helps you retain your natural collagen stores from the inside)
- Shinier, stronger hair
- Thicker intestinal lining, allowing for a reduction in food sensitivities and pathogen invasion (helps heal leaky gut syndrome)
This stuff is amazing for beauty and mood- this is the best brand that I have found.
We know that I am obsessed with coconut oil….well this is like coconut oil on steroids. MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides. It is a concentrated form of fat that is about 6x stronger than coconut oil when it comes to feeding your brain.
Benefits of MCT Oil
- Mental clarity: Ketones are substances that are made when the body breaks down fat for energy and they are the preferred source of fuel for the brain to use which is why MCT will give you great of mental clarity.
- Brain function and Immune support: Breast milk actually contains a lot of MCTs to help with baby’s brain develop and function. It also builds their immune system.
- Fast Energy – MCT oil converts into energy faster than other oils and will give you long lasting energy throughout the day
- Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
- Nutrient Absorption – Improves the body’s absorption and use of vitamin E, calcium, and magnesium
Immune System Benefits
- Helps lessen harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi inside the body
- Serves as stable building block of cell membranes
The great part about this is that it is flavorless and easy to mix into any smoothie, soup, salad, or stirfry. Now, this stuff is very powerful and you need to work up slowly. I use 1 1/2 tea spoon(sometimes more) in my morning smoothie or tea. I still use coconut oil to cook with as well!
One of the most powerful life-giving substances on the planet is chlorophyll. Chlorophyll rich foods are extraordinarily useful in building new blood cells and purifying the body from cancer and other diseases and imbalances. Getting a quality greens powder into your diet each day can be one of the most powerful “supplements” to take care of your body.
Benefits of a green powder:
- Disease and cancer prevention
- Increased Energy
- Clear skin
- Bright Eyes
- Detoxification daily
- Provides essentials vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids the body needs to function
This is my absolute favorite greens powder– for clear skin and healthy digestion.

Cereal grasses such as wheat grass and barley grass, are considered the most chlorophyll dense plants in the world. Chlorella and spirulina are algae that help to cleanse and detoxify the body with their chlorophyll.
Many greens powders have a combination of vegetables, greens, probiotics, algaes(spirulina, chlorella), and other antioxidants that will give you a bang for your buck.
Start taking these foods each morning and notice your body and mind change!
