Bite The Bullet

Bite the Bullet… Bulletproof Coffee and Bio Hacking


There is a great deal of interest in Bio Hacking and it’s benefits. Generally speaking, Bio Hacking is when scientists go into a lab and take a look at genes or the biology of a living organism and “ hack” into their biology to see how that organism works and what happens when they “tinker “ around with it. Dave Asprey has been using the term to “hack” into his own biology and create a better version of himself. While we are no expert on the subject, and there is no peer scientific review of his claims, we decided to take a look at one of Dave’s most visible products of bio hacking right now. Of course, it’s up to you to try this or not, research or experiment further,


Dave’s Bulletproof coffee has caught on with the Paleo crowd, body builders and others looking for a new way toward building energy and mental clarity.  Here is a look behind how he came to his formula.


The story behind Bulletproof Coffee

Dave Asprey, CEO and founder of Bulletproof, got the idea for Bulletproof Coffee after a trek in Tibet in 2004. At 18,000 above sea level and -10°F, his energy was plummeting – until he staggered into a guest house and a local handed him a creamy cup of yak butter tea.

The butter-infused drink is a necessity for the people in Tibet, who live and work in such rugged, high altitude terrain. The drink instantly rejuvenated Dave. It was like a flip was switched on in his brain and body.

The biohacker in him wondered why the tea made him feel so good, and he embarked on years of research into why it switched on the lights of focus and energy so quickly. Eventually, Dave substituted tea for mold-free coffee, and yak butter for grass-fed cow’s butter (a tad easier to find than yak butter at your local grocery store). Brain Octane Oil was the final missing piece. Together, those three ingredients gave Dave the abundant energy and effortless mental clarity he felt in that hut in Tibet.
