Head Strong Book & Optimizing Mitochondrial Health and Wellness with Dave Asprey Dave Asprey is the founder of Bulletproof Exec, a company geared towards biohacking to make sure the human body not only functions optimally, but ages slowly too. Before the invention of the now famous Bulletproof coffee, Dave was just another man walking the halls of Silicon Valley who once weighed a total of 300 unhealthy pounds. That was 20 years ago and he has since lost 100 pounds. He devoted his life to health and longevity and spent 15 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars hacking his own biology. Today, Dave talks about his new book called Head Strong, the reason why he wrote that book, his latest findings, and why he is now one of mitochondria’s biggest fans. "I changed breakfast for millions of people using biohacking.” Dave Asprey In this episode, you’ll learn: The Bulletproof Diet teaches you how to eat to have more energy and power with weight loss as a side effect. His new book explains why the Bulletproof diet works. When you know how mitochondria works, walking barefoot makes sense, cold bathing makes sense. Neurons in the brain prefer ketones, but glial cells prefer glucose more than ketones. Our brain has thousands more mitochondria than the whole body. Light is terribly important for mitochondrial health. You can get energy from melanin, not just in your skin, but also in your brain and eyes. Mitochondrial dysfunction can also be called aging. Key Takeaways: Mitochondria are the ones calling the shots, not you. Your mitochondria listen to your phone and Wi-Fi. The mitochondria are the smallest unit of consciousness in the body and the fastest bio sensors.
