What is biohacking?
Biohacking refers to the pursuit of greater self-knowledge and self-improvement through data. Biohacking means taking responsibility of your own wellbeing by focusing on optimizing your own exercising, diet, recovery and mental health with the help of technology. Biohacking can mean anything from calculating your daily footsteps to taking specific supplements based on your personal health data.
Biohackers observe, measure and analyze their diet, sleep, activity and recovery with smart phone apps, wearable technology, laboratory testing and genetic testing. The data is used as a basis to achieve better health and performance through exercising, nutrition, supplements and stress management techniques such as meditating.
Biohacker’s Handbook – the ultimate guide to optimizing exercise, diet and recovery
The well-known Finnish experts of biohacking – M.D. Olli Sovijärvi, technology expert Teemu Arina and nutritional expert Jaakko Halmetoja – have written the acclaimed Biohacker’s Handbook. The book brings together novel perspectives on technology, biology and self-development. Biohacker’s Handbook has been acclaimed for its practical and research-based information on optimizing wellbeing and for its easy-to-follow format. The book is the go-to guide for anyone interested in optimizing their wellbeing and performance and learning the optimal balance between exercise, diet and recovery.
Biohacker’s nutrients and supplements
The body needs a constant supply of nutrients in order to function properly. Failing to get enough of micronutrients leads to health problems and reduced performance. Optimizing nutrient intake is therefore at the core of biohacking.

In addition to exercising and diet, recovery and mental balance are equally important components of health. Rohtos Labs Peace is a natural supplement which helps to conquer stress and anxiety.
