Ian says: I am wondering where a good place to start would be when I start purchasing some biohacking devices for longevity.

I am looking forward to purchasing some of your Kion Coffee.

The Best Biohacks For Libido [01:06:17]
Joshua says: Question about all the experimenting you have done on your penis. I have not been sexually active for about six years and am getting married in a few months. I am interested in doing one of the experiments that you have done to have better sexual performance. I know they are costly, so do you have a suggestion as to which one gives you the best “bang for your buck” – no pun intended. I don’t think I have any problems, I am just looking for heightened performance.
In my response, I recommend:
BUT first address the following:
-Zinc (recommend black ant extract)
-Vitamin D (recommend Thorne D/K)
-Creatine (recommend Thorne Creapure)
-Nitric oxide (recommended photobiomodulation with sunlight/JOOVV/Vielight)

Suppository vs. Vitamins [00:00:00]
Thomas says: As biohackers, why aren’t we taking advantage of the higher absorption rate of suppositories? I would rather stick something up my butt than swallow dozens of pills every day. Maybe that is just me? Plus there is the DIY factor.
