Calling all biohackers, we've got a list for you! 

It's also for people who may have no idea what biohacking is but are game to try new performance optimization tools and techniques. So, let's start with the basics: what is biohacking? 

The general idea of biohacking is making changes to enhance your body's functionality based on fields like biology, neuroscience and nutrition, "hacking" your "biology," if you will.1 It's about using aspects like diet, exercise or lifestyle to improve your health, performance or general well-being. While some biohacking practices are considered extreme (which we advise you to steer clear of), it is such a broad concept that anyone working to improve their physical or mental well-being might consider themselves a biohacker.

Between biohacking's rise in popularity and a general increase in personal health and wellness expenditures worldwide,2 businesses are rapidly developing new and innovative technologies to meet demand, from fitness and nutrition trackers to devices that analyze stress, sleep and so on.
