Humanity is dying from malnutrition. Not only because there is shortage of food on the most part of the planet, but also because that nutritional content of our food is quite abominable. Western diet is abundant, but void of nutrients and rich in environmental toxins. As a result, Western world suffers from great many diseases, that are either preventable, or well manageable by nutrition. Examples are fertility issues, epidemics of auto-immune diseases, and proliferating stress effects.
The human race can, should and must use science and technology to transcend inborn and acquired physical and mental limitations. This process is sometimes called “biohacking”. We can monitor our body systems’ performance using blood panel tests or just by measuring body temperature. We see hints of biohacking in the trend of monitoring one’s body and mind using smart watches or similar devices.
The most popular application of biohacking are the attempts to bring the body to desired shape and performance. Health-conscious population picked up biohacking shortcuts with gusto and enthusiasm. The common belief is that the easiest way to improve state of wellbeing is to compensate nutritional shortcomings by taking a pill. It is no wonder that Supplements Industry is booming. In 2015, 45.6% of Canadians aged one year and older (approximately 15.7 million people) used at least one nutritional supplement. In the USA, annual supplements spending in 2017 reached $36bln; average family spends annually over $300 to buy supplements in their pursuit of happiness and health.
Though it is so difficult to select perfect recommendations on the media! Trial and error bio-hacking may have death as an unexpected side effect.
There are 2 very important questions regarding your body needs which need to be answered to understand how good for you is your compensation approach (not for Instagram influencer or a girl next door who recommended this beautiful pill):
