EP 162 - Dave Aprey
Welcome to the Pretty Intense Podcast. Today on the show is Dave Asprey. I would be surprised if you haven't heard of Dave, he is the "Father Of Biohacking." Dave founded bulletproof coffee. He is a best-selling author, working on his 5th book now. He started the amazing "Upgrade Labs" - a health center for high achieving health. Dave hosts a podcast called " The Human Upgrade." I don't even know where to start with this interview. I came up with a bunch of questions. My questions were all around the realm of nutrition. But I knew there was somewhere else where we should go, that weren't places that he would normally go in an interview. And that is exactly what happened. I honestly think everyone should listen to this interview. The information is so next level. You want to be upgraded? You want to be super-human? All I can say is, it has to do with how you live your life, and the science behind that. Dave is super tapped in spiritually. Get ready, buckle up. This is a fantastic episode. Enjoy.
Dave Asprey is an acclaimed entrepreneur, four-time New York Times best-selling science author, host of the top 100 podcast, The Human Upgrade, and CEO of Upgrade Labs. Known as the “Father of Biohacking,” Dave has worked with world-renowned doctors, researchers, scientists, and global mavericks over the last two decades to uncover the latest, most innovative methods, techniques, and products that enhance mental and physical performance. Founder of Bulletproof Coffee and the Bulletproof Diet, a company named one of the top 20 innovative brands by Fast Company, Dave is a true pioneer in the health and wellness industry. He is a leading voice in the movement to take control of our own biology and has created industries to support his breakthrough protocols, including billion-dollar categories for MCT oil, collagen protein, and functional coffee, now known around the world. Having personally spent nearly $2 million hacking his own body’s ability to live to be 180, Dave has continued to push the bounds of human possibility all in the name of science and evolution, leading to the launch of a global biohacking movement and the largest, longest-running Biohacking Conference in the world. Through his own reinvented diet and deliberate lifestyle choices, Dave has maintained a 100-pound weight loss, improved his sleep, and upgraded his brain, ultimately transforming himself into a better entrepreneur, husband, and father. He has helped millions of people perform at levels far beyond their expectations—without burning out or getting sick. Today, Dave is focused on upgrading humanity through Upgrade Labs, the first biohacking facilities or “Human Upgrade Centers” in the world. Additionally, he leads thousands of people enrolled in The Upgrade Collective, his online mentorship and membership group in which a community of people learn everything it takes to upgrade their bodies and minds, from cells to spirit. Dave remains committed to progression and innovation in the industry, and recently unveiled his newest business venture, Danger Coffee, a clean, mold-free, farm-direct coffee engineered to remineralize the body with more than 50 trace minerals, nutrients, and electrolytes.
