For the past three years, I've been tirelessly toiling behind the scenes to create the book I've personally always wished existed: a complete guide to optimizing the human body, mind, and spirit—written with no stone unturned, no fluff, no “watered down” drivel—just pure, hardcore, practical, from-the-trenches content. I won't lie: nearly every big New York publishing house turned me down for this book. It was too big. (The completed manuscript was over 1100 pages, and we trimmed it down to 608 pages for the final release.) It was too comprehensive. (It wasn't a flash-in-the-pan,...

Founded in 2009 ATP Science is the brainchild of Matthew Legge, Jeff and Toni Doidge, and in this episode I have a chat about supplements, longevity, muscle gain, fat loss, training and much, much more with Matt and Jeff. ATP Science Head Scientist Matt Legge has more than a decade of creating formulas for well-known companies in the health supplement industry. Matt became frustrated when his formulations were constantly altered to fit in with marketing ideas or reduce manufacturing costs.

This episode is all about light, but it's certainly not light on content! See, the last time I was in Malibu, myself, music producer Rick Rubin and today's guest - Matt Maruca of RA Optics - spent plenty of time geeking out on all things light. I've known Matt for two years now, and consider him to be one of the world's leading authorities on what is called "photobiomodulation" - or the use of specific wavelengths of light therapy to cause some very beneficial health effects, and also a guy who knows more about blue-light blocking glasses and limiting the harmful effects of artificial light...

Two years ago, in the post, “11 Indispensable Lessons I Learned From The Biohacker’s Handbook Of Exercise,” I introduced you to my biohacking friends from Finland – a pioneer of holistic medicine in Finland, human technology and self-quantification specialist, Teemu Arina, superfood hunter and nutritionist, Jaakko Halmetoja, as well as Dr. Olli Sovijärvi, MD.

Then, just a few months ago, in the article "14 Biohacking Secrets I Discovered In The Brand New Biohacker’s Handbook", I announced that their entire, 544-page “Biohacker’s Handbook” had been released in the English language - and was an absolutely stellar read jam-packed with tips, tricks, and hacks I’d never before seen, and the ultimate addition to any health, fitness, and nutrition enthusiast’s coffee table or bookshelf.

In that article, I shared with you 14 biohacking secrets I gleaned from the brand new beautiful hardcover book, which my guests on today's show - the authors of the book - describe as the “definitive guide to upgrading yourself and unleashing your inner potential.” Five years in making, Biohacker’s Handbook: Upgrade Yourself and Unleash Your Inner Potential has more than 540+ pages, 1560+ references and hundreds of illustrations.

It is “the missing manual of the human body” and an essential addition to the library, work desk, kitchen, gym, suitcase and bedroom of anyone with a genuine interest in optimal human performance, health and well-being.

You can click here to get the new book, and use code: BEN for a 10% discount.

The same guys who wrote the book, also put on the extremely popular Biohacker Summit in global hotspots such as Helsinki, Stockholm, Estonia, London and Toronto - summits where I've personally spoken and where many brands have hit it big for the first time, including Four Sigmatic, Oura, Goodio and Ambronite. Biohacker Summit is one of the top optimal human performance & health conferences on the planet that focuses on combining ancestral living with modern biohacking practices.

The upcoming Biohacker Summit 2019 is the 5th year anniversary edition that will be organized on 1-2 November 2019 in Helsinki, Finland with the theme “Optimize Your Day 24/7”, and includes a wild-plant foraged VIP dinner, upgraded parties, a fantastic expo floor to play with new biohacking devices and much more. You can get a bundle of videos from all previous summits by clicking here (use 10% discount code BEN). You can also click here and use code BEN for 10% off tickets to the upcoming summit in Helsinki, taking place Nov 1-2, 2019 in Finland.

My first guest on this show, in which we take a deep dive into Biohacker’s Handbook, is Dr. Olli Sovijärvi. He is one of the pioneers of holistic medicine in Finland. In 2006 he graduated from the University of Helsinki with a Licentiate degree in Medicine. In 2010–2011 Dr. Sovijärvi completed an Integral Theory degree at the John F. Kennedy University, focusing on psychology and philosophy. For the first five years of his career as a physician, Dr Sovijärvi was employed by Finland’s first medical recruitment agency. He has worked at nearly 50 different clinics and ER’s around Finland.

Dr. Sovijärvi has also acted as consultant to various companies and service providers operating in the fields of wellness and health technology. Between 2013–18 Dr. Sovijärvi practiced medicine at a private clinic that specializes in nutrition and holistic health care. At present, Sovijärvi focuses primarily on the production of scientific content for preventive health care and wellbeing. He is a co-author of the Biohacker’s handbook and co-founder of Biohacking Center.

He also runs training sessions and presentations on the topics of biohacking, performance optimization, nutritional issues and maintaining the intestinal balance. At the free time he is an exercise enthusiast and an electronic music DJ. Teemu Arina, my other guest, has a professional career of two decades as a technology entrepreneur, author, professional speaker, and biohacker.

Mr. Arina is one of the forefront thinkers on the digital transformation of learning, work, leadership, health and - eventually - the future of humanity. His work focuses on studying the intersection of man and the machine and ways to improve productivity, health, and wellbeing with biological and technological tools.

He is a co-author of the Biohacker's Handbook, co-founder of Biohacking Center and curator of Biohacker Summit. In 2015 he received the Leonardo Award under the title "Humanity in digitization", in 2016 he was selected as Top 100 Most Influential People In IT, in 2017 Speaker of the Year by Speakersforum, and in 2018 Leadership Trainer of the Year by Turku School of Economics. In his free time, Teemu enjoys foraging, photography, and hiking.
