In the last episode, we had the CEO of Bulletproof Exec Dave Asprey talk about mitochondria, how much our diet affects mitochondrial functions, and how a few lifestyle changes will boost not just mitochondrial efficiency but our overall health from a cellular point of view.

In Part of the interview, Dave will discuss different factors that may alter your mitochondrial functions in a negative way, more tips on how to further biohack your mitochondria, as well as provide general health advice.


“Instead of focusing on perfection, you can just learn to ask the question ‘what is this going to do to my mitochondria?’” Dave Asprey
