Biohacking – Part1

(20 minute read)

It is no secret that I have very ambitious goals when it comes to my life expectancy. At the very least I want to live to the year 2100. I fit into a category of people referred to as “Immortalist”. For me the best case scenario would be to achieve what renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil calls “Longevity Escape Velocity”. This simply translates to the ability to stop ageing and live forever. Some might call that crazy…to me, it is a calling. Biohacking is not something new. Human beings have been fascinated by the concept of living longer and being healthier for centuries. Alchemists and explorers alike have traveled to the ends of the earth in search of the secret to immortality. It is just that recently we starting using the term “Biohacking” to describe a process initially (and rather clumsily) referred to as “performance enhancement” or “biological optimisation”. Biohacking is however a very broad concept and is not just for those wanting to achieve longevity. There are people who simply want to live healthier for longer and be the best versions of themselves for as long as they can who get tremendous results from focussed biohacking techniques.

The wellness community has their eyes on a new health and anti-ageing trend: drinking collagen. Collagen is a $4Bil industry and the protein substance that is referred to as the “glue” that holds our bodies together. We have an abundance of it. It makes up about 25 percent of our body mass and can be found in bones, ligaments, tendons, hair, nails, muscle, connective tissue, organs and blood vessels. An astonishing 70 to 80 percent of our skin also consists of collagen which is what gives it its full and plump look. Unfortunately the body’s natural cell turnover and supply of collagen tends to decrease from 25 as we age. So, in come the supplements to make up for any potential deficiency.
