A Visit to Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Biohacking Lab

It was great to be at the October 11th launch of Bulletproof Labs in Santa Monica. Earlier this summer, we were lucky to visit Dave Asprey at his Lab on Vancouver Island. After thinking about that visit, its still hard to say what is the coolest thing in Dave’s lab. By far it is Dave Asprey himself, but technically he doesn’t qualify as a ‘thing’. Regardless, we’ll acknowledge him for the ideal combination of a super sharp mind, great personality, and passion for health and biohacking.

Of course, we should say the coolest thing in the lab is our NanoVi™ device (because it is), but we already knew how great it was before visiting Bulletproof Lab. In a literal sense, there’s no question that Cryo Therapy was the coolest, with a 2-minute session dipping as low as 260 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit of course, since I survived and felt great).

The most fun device was a ping pong ball machine that helps develop mental and physical agility. It was set at a slow pace, but I still launched balls all over one end of the lab (and yes, there was a safety net but it was a bit low for my skill level). Seems like a good way to improve agility and have fun at the same time.

I was much better at adaptation-based physical conditioning where you simply sit in a pod. It is sealed and my only job was to make sure the pressure didn’t build up in my ears. The dynamic changes in pressure provide the benefits of exercise without physical exertion or a chance of injury.Definitely an interesting experience that any biohacker would appreciate.

Adaptive resistance was a beast that is always stronger than the person using it. It shows the score which brought out my competitive streak and the urge to improve on past performance. The end result was some sore muscles – it won. Another device I tried involved working out on a recumbent bike while compression and cooling are applied through cuffs on the arms and thighs, and along the back. I was impressed by how much I liked the cooling and compression while exercising.

These are just a few examples of the innovative devices in Dave Asprey’s lab. There were lots of other technologies, some that we tried and many that we didn’t have time for. I suspect they must all be pretty cool or they wouldn’t be in Dave’s biohacking lab. NanoVi fits right in because it complements the other devices. Regardless of whether the goal is physical ability, mental performance, balancing the system or restoring it, NanoVi can improve the outcome by amping up cellular function. Dave’s Bulletproof lab is a perfect showcase for biohacking with NanoVi and we are grateful for the chance to visit. I was happy to see the Bulletproof folks picked these technologies, and of course NanoVi™,for Bulletproof Labs in Santa Monica – more on that later.
