Georgi Dinkov Part 1 

When it comes to biohacking, our go-to guy is Georgi Dinkov. Georgi is probably one of the few people who is always ready to give you a whole world of answers. The interesting thing about Georgi is how he doesn’t have a formal education with regards to what constitutes biohacking specially biochemistry and has only his interest and a few conferences under his belt to prove his merit. Still, he can hold a good conversation with an actual biochemist as you’ll realize in this episode. 

Today Georgi will discuss a plethora of information regarding biohacking. The topics would revolve around mitochondrial health, cellular respiration, and Georgi’s thoughts on the medical industry.  


If you want to cure all these diseases, you better restore mitochondrial function.” Georgi Dinkov 


  In this episode, you’ll learn: 

  • The mitochondria are responsible for 80% of our body’s ATP. 
  • The three steps to cellular respiration are Glycolysis, Krebs Cycle, and Electro Transport Chain. The Mitochondria is responsible for the second and third step. 
  • Our lifestyle can cause and cure metabolic disease. 
  • More money is now being used to fund studies regarding the Warburg effect. Some even say the Warburg effect is not just an effect but also the cause of cancer. 
  • Any activity, fun and not strenuous, is healthy for you and your mitochondria.  
  • If you run and you can't hold a conversation, you're overexerting yourself. Overexertion is dangerous and can backfire against your mitochondrial health. 
  • Hardcore Endurance enthusiasts are dried up and considered good but the truth is they might have cardiomyopathy or enlargement of the heart and eventually lead to chronic heart failure by their 40s. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Activity is good but it should be stimulating, not be strenuous and exhausting or make you collapse. 
  • You will not grow muscle if you're cholesterol levels are low since you won't have testosterone.
