  • Mullets for Mental Health – Health Hackers
    Science. Compassion. Action. Posted by Nathan, Thursday 28th We’re all ears for Black Dog Institute’s Mullets for Mental Health. 1 in 5 of us will experience symptoms of mental illness in any given year. In Australia that’s around 5 million people. And roughly 65% of these people won’t seek help. For the month of September […]

What we are about:

  • An evidence-based approach to health
  • Clinical Studies
  • Scientific Research
  • First-hand reports
  • Measurable outcomes

What we don’t support:

  • Anti-vaxxing
  • Old Wives Tales
  • Facebook Fads
  • Diets

Please note that we do not vet posts in The Science section. We simply find and collate interesting publications. Some publications may be debunked, others may not have a full set of requirements to fully establish the facts. You should always cross reference and check that there are any correlating third-party publications to confirm. All of these are from reputable sources, but things change over time.

Help, what is this all about? What is biohacking?

New to all of this and are at the “holy crap there’s so much to know” stage? Firstly, as stated in Douglas Adams’ Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe, don’t panic! Also, know that we’ve all been there and you are not alone. Firstly, biohacking is simply the term used to talk about improving health by supporting the human body’s natural systems. The best news is, that we’ve created a whole section of our site to help you understand the basics before you dive deeper into our more complex sections. We call this our “eli5 or explain it like I’m five” section and it’s full of articles on the basics of nutrition, DNA, mitochondria, supplements, and more. We’ve also got a QandA form for help finding specific information for you.

Ready to jump in head first? Seasoned biohacker ready to take it to the next level?

Just here to find the information? We have broken the site up into sections to help you better find the information you are after.

Articles

Our “Articles” section contains a more subjective analysis of the information available here and elsewhere. We attempt to take information and findings and relay it into more simple English language or point form guides for you to then dig deeper into yourself.

  • Self depricating justification of vilification – Opinion
    Self deprecating justification of vilification is the excusing of toxic and even abusive behaviour towards people by way of trying to make out the other person has done something so egregious that it deserves being vilified and castrated in public. It seems to stem from tribalism, which makes sense in regards to supporting your tribe, […]
  • Are you ok?
    It goes without saying that there’s plenty we’re all dealing with. It’s important to know that your not alone, and you don’t have to do it alone. There’s no shame in reaching out and letting someone know you need a bit of extra support to get through. We are here. We care, and we are […]
  • We asked AI what if everyone just got along, what could the human race achieve.
    These are the four images it gave us. We can’t quite put our finger on it, but it seems so eary and seems to be trying to tell us something. What do you think?
  • The Tufts Food Compass
    Food Compass is a novel nutrient profiling system developed by researchers at Tufts University. By evaluating foods across 9 domains and using a unique algorithm to determine a score, we can assign a Food Compass Score (FCS) between 1 and 100 (with 100 being the most healthful) to nearly any food. https://sites.tufts.edu/foodcompass/

    Some interesting and somewhat encouraging news from the Woolworths CEO today via his email updates during Covid-19 show some interesting trends in consumer spending on food and vitamins during this time. To quote from his email: “We are becoming healthier and more adventurous in our cookingWhile the slow cooking movement continues, we’re also becoming increasingly […]

  • Combination therapy of glycation lowering compounds reduces caloric intake, improves insulin sensitivity and extends lifespan. | bioRxiv
    Administration of Gly-Low reduced food consumption and body weight, improving insulin sensitivity and survival in both leptin receptor deficient (Lepr db) and wildtype C57 control mouse models. Unlike calorie restriction, Gly-Low inhibited ghrelin-mediated hunger responses and upregulated Tor pathway signaling in the hypothalamus. Gly-Low also extended lifespan when administered as a late life intervention, suggesting […]
  • Red blood cell omega-3 fatty acids and attention scores in healthy adolescents
    Overall, our results suggest that DHA (reflecting its dietary intake) is associated with attention performance in typically developing adolescents. The role of dietary ALA in attention is less clear, although higher blood levels of ALA appear to result in lower impulsivity. Future intervention studies are needed to determine the causality of these associations and to […]
  • Therapeutic potential of Short Chain Fatty acid production by gut microbiota in Neurodegenerative disorders
    The current systematic review and meta-analysis indicate that dietary fermentation of non-digestible fibers leads to the production of SCFA (Short Chain Fatty Acids) by gut microbiota. Moreover, they directly act on the central nervous system and inhibit the progression of different neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson Disease (PD), Alzheimer Disease (AD) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). SCFAs […]

If you are looking for supplements check out our Recommended Suppliers and Products page. Here we curate lists of products and supplements that we are aware of being used in the community or by our staff. We cannot guarantee quality or purity but this would be a good place to start finding more reputable products. In the future, we will be getting different products lab-tested to prove purity and identity.
