The Biohacker Guide

The Biohacker Guide from Nootrobox is the definitive biohacking resource and guide. There's tremendously exciting research in the areas of cognitive modulation, biohacking, and human enhancement. With that excitement, however, comes misinterpretation and hype. The guide cuts through the noise and distils the latest data, results, and conclusions from peer-reviewed, statistically significant studies.

In this compendium, we seek to establish a resource for you to begin hacking your biology. We believe that optimization is an iterative process, so we have written protocols that are a good place to start your journey as a biohacker. In addition to our protocols, we list tools to quantify the domains you are trying to optimize, that we have found through research and personal experience to be the best in class. For example, macro-nutrient tracking options to optimize your diet or cognitive testing tools to optimize your brain function. Through these pages, you will also find in-depth explanations of each facet of the protocols, from descriptions of the nootropics to descriptions of the biological domains they modify.

Hacking Cognition

What is optimal cognition? It depends on your state and goals, and to some degree, it is a highly personalized choice that may be most affected by your personal situation. For example, insufficient sleep, or a suboptimal diet can also interfere with peak cognitive performance. Read on, to see our biohacker protocol for optimizing cognition. (Learn more)
