Need a vacation? Get into meditation! It’s free, easy to learn and is an essential skill that you can use anytime, to help you manage the stress, pressure and non-stop challenges of modern life. And did we mention that meditation can also keep your heart, brain and body young, healthy and relaxed?
We all know that exercise does the body good, but did you know it also works wonders for the brain? Turns out, working up a sweat has a positive impact on what’s happening inside your head—and the benefits are major, ranging from improved memory and increased focus to a better ability to manage stress.
Biohacking is using pretty much anything at your disposal (medications, knowledge, science, therapies, etc.) to make your body and brain work at its full potential. Some people get into biohacking to improve energy, some are interested in better focus, and some want inflammation relief. There is a biohack for every one of these problems and more. Too good to be true? I assure you, it’s not.

It’s more than just a tasty flavor-enhancer though.
