Biohacking is taking full control of your biology.

Biohacking — also known as DIY biology — is an extremely broad and amorphous term that can cover a huge range of activities, from performing science experiments on yeast or other organisms to tracking your own sleep and diet to changing your own biology by pumping a younger person’s blood into your veins in the hope that it’ll fight aging.

Biohacking is the desire to understand the body and mind you’ve been given and using everything at your disposal–cutting-edge technology, tools, and science–to become the best version of yourself.

Simply put, biohacking is the art and science of changing the environment around you and inside you so you have more control over your own biology.

Top 10 Biohacks:

  1. Hacking Your Nervous System. 
  2. The Bulletproof Diet. 
  3. Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting. 
  4. Gratitude and Forgiveness. 
  5. Neurofeedback Techniques. 
  6. Hack your Sleep. 
  7. Taking Smart Drugs and Nootropics. 
  8. Sex and Stress.

The key potential to this niche is prevention. Big pharma tends to focus a lot of resources on fighting sickness, but there’s a shortage of effective products marketed toward generally healthy people who seek to enhance their everyday performance. Biohacking could be the solution, and it offers tech entrepreneurs an opportunity to fill the void big pharma leaves.   Biohacking is becoming a big industry and the core for many startups.
