Biohacking, or as some like to refer to it, “Do-it-Yourself-Biology” once again comes into play. If you are not familiar with this term, simply put, biohacking is the concept of hacking the human body and mind for optimal functioning or as we like to refer to it, your Prime Self.
Biohacking has become a popular tool to optimize human functioning and supercharge our bodies for enhanced day-to-day functioning.
Detoxification, a simple yet effective tool that revolves around resting, cleansing, reseting and nourishing the body from the inside out. The process involves ridding the body of toxins and unwanted chemicals to result in a fresh, healthy and high performing system.
A simple yet effective method of detoxification that can be implemented on a day-to-day basis is through the process of healthy, clean eating. The amount of toxins and harmful chemicals in our daily diets is staggering, by simply cutting out processed foods, carbohydrates, sugars and alcohol can make all the difference!
Eat for your brain, eat for your body, eat clean!
Simple diet changes can not only have drastic impacts on your general health but your performance too. To be put bluntly, fuelling a car with cheap dirty fuel, can not be expected to run as smooth, quick and for as long periods as one running on pure high quality fuel and this is the same for your body!
Where to start?
- Free Range and Organic Meat
- Wild Fish
- Green & Leafy Vegetables
- Coconut Oil
- Whole Grains
Prime the elimination system:
- Adding some fresh lemon juice to your meals, juices or simply in a glass water in the morning can aid in kick-starting the systems.
The 12-hour window:
- Similar to that of intermittent fasting, ensure your last meal is 12 hours away from that of your breakfast to ensure optimal metabolic functioning. The body needs an absolute minimum of 4 hours to detox.
Juice predominantly with veggies not fruits:
- Fruits are great but are high in sugars, juicing with veggies results in a much more effective detox. A small amount of fruits can be added for a sweeter taste but should be limited.
Everyone can benefit from some awareness of what exactly they are putting into, on and around their bodies. Do some research, opt for the healthier alternative and start to prime your body for optimal performance.
