The way in which we live our modern lives has wreaked havoc on the ways our bodies are meant to function. Snacking late at night, blue light, not enough sleep, and inflammation all play a massive role in how our bodies operate. 

Shawn has completed countless hours of biochemical research into how we can help improve the health of our mitochondria and improve mitochondrial biogenesis so that we can live longer and more vibrant lives.

Biohacking Your Way to a More Vibrant Life

Eating whole foods, prioritizing sleep hygiene, and creating quality relationships are just a few of the ways that we can improve our mitochondrial health, and therefore increase our energy and longevity. Going through life energy depleted is no way to live, which is why you need to provide your mitochondria with the nutrients they need to begin working for you again.

“This is all pro-aging. Pro biological aging and pro disease. Almost all diseases are correlated to that metabolic dysfunction, which is essentially synonymous with mitochondrial dysfunction.” (15:01)

“Doing all these things that are disrupting our circadian rhythm is wreaking havoc.” (19:03)

“You compare the data over 28 years, someone smoking two packs a day has 16% more likelihood of having cancer. Over those same 28 years, someone who eats a high poly and saturated fatty acid diet has an 86% higher rate of cancer. That’s like five times of cigarettes two packs a day.” (23:55)

“If we are saying that most people are insulin resistant or glucose intolerant, and they are not taking glucose into the cell as well, then this alternate fuel source of ketones is going to help that mitochondria get the fuel source it needs to create ATP.” (33:53)

“Lifespan is how long you live, healthspan is how long you live without disease. And so now healthspan is a big part of the discussion, how vibrantly are we living?” (36:41)
