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.
Charles Darwin said that science is provisional, not only will it change, but it should change, as its only the conclusion of the current known facts.
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, 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.
