Hapbee brainwave technology puts you in the driver’s seat of your brain. It allows you to access various feelings at the tap of a button – feel happy (heightened sensation of dopamine), calm, relaxed, alert (cognitive focus), sleepy, and yes even more sexy.
We live in a non-stop, plugged-in world, heavy with distractions and worries. This makes it more challenging than ever to find balance and calm. The Sensate is a state-of-the-art device designed to help you experience deep relaxation. In essence, it synchronizes infrasound vibrations with calming audio to stimulate your vagus nerve. This allows you to hack your entire nervous system so that you can manage your stress more effectively and improve your sleep. Sensate has been shown to improve heart rate variability, which can help you achieve many of the benefits associated with meditation.

48% of people under age 40 have early onset mitochondrial dysfunction, and everyone over age 40 has it — we just call it aging. NanoVi™ devices are used to boost mitochondrial health and reduce oxidative stress by signaling repair and regeneration at the cellular level. This technology is also super convenient because it’s both portable, and 100% passive — meaning that you can use it almost anytime, day or night, to recover and rejuvenate. Know someone that often experiences burnout, poor sleep, stress and/or other challenges that impact how they feel and function each day? NanoVi technology is an innovative gift idea that will help make personal care and recovery time much easier to come by.
Advancements in medicine and technology have extended the average lifespan, but a longer lifespan doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be living healthily. Here‘s the thing, you have a chronological age, which is how many years you’ve been alive, and then you also have a biological, or inner age, which is basically a measure of how well your body is aging internally. InsideTracker is an ultra-personalized nutrition system that analyzes key biometrics (e.g. your blood, DNA, and lifestyle) to help you biohack your lifespan.
Pssst..we are not our age; we are our energy! Now, before you keep reading, I want to be clear that this product is a luxury item. So, if you know someone that is very invested in biohacking their energy for healthier living, the BioCharger NG may be a great (and very generous!) gift idea. This system is notably the first energy platform of its kind to utilize four different energy types — including light, voltage, frequencies and harmonics, as well as Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields (PEMFs) — to heal the body. Biocharger’s technology basically turns all this energy into a human recharging station — to help improve mental and physical performance, and general health. When using this technology, people often experience significant gains in energy, recovery, performance, focus, sleep, and flexibility.

Sleep is the new status symbol, truly. One of the simplest and most effective ways to improve your Zzz’s is to manage your light exposure — especially at nighttime, when the body needs complete darkness. But sometimes we may have work or other activities happening that keep us awake later into the evening. The Twilights Sunset is the latest style of sleep-hacking glasses to join the TrueDark family, and they are considered the perfect “in-between” solution for those that tend to stay up later, but that also want the flexibility of being able to fall asleep quickly. They have gradient lenses that are darker on top and lighter on the bottom so that you can effectively block out junk light while still being able to see, read, write and move around your home comfortably. These sleep-hacking glasses are designed to help you live in harmony with technology and keep your circadian rhythm on track so that you can sleep, feel, and live better every day.
Photobiomodulation (aka LED light therapy) is like photosynthesis for the body. It is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment that uses “bioactive” wavelengths of light to charge your cells and promote faster, deeper healing. TrueLight’s light therapy devices are unique in that they use a patent-pending combination of dark red, red, yellow, and near-infrared light to help heal the body from the surface of your skin all the way down to the bone. They also have 2 different modes: pulsating for rapid healing, or steady mode for pain relief. The new TrueLight Baton Rouge is the latest addition to the TrueLight lineup; it packs the same punch as the original TrueLight Energy Square but is even more convenient to take with you while traveling!
This“next day nootropic” supports your body’s natural production of melatonin – your sleep-timing hormone – and GABA — the neurotransmitter responsible for putting on the brakes in your brain. A mix of Ayurvedic Rasayana herbs and adaptogens help relax the nervous system, balance cortisol levels, and lower hyperarousal states — one of the most common causes of poor sleep. Qualia Night contains a stack of 25 carefully selected ingredients to enhance the pathways in your brain while you sleep. This supplement promotes BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) which plays an important role in the protection and growth of new neurons. Qualia Night also supports stem cell function to maximize regeneration and make your sleep as restorative as possible.
To get better quality rest, you can train your brain like a muscle. The Silentmode Powermask is designed to help you tap into your cardiac vagal tone (CVT) levels and vagus nerve, which is responsible for regulating breathing, heart rate, and your body’s stress response. In short, it helps you keep your body’s stress signals in check through controlled breathing. It’s not necessarily meant to be worn while sleeping, but users often experience better sleep while using this device to induce short naps or while doing meditation exercises.
Kava is a plant-based drink has historically been used by South Pacific Islanders to improve mood and cognitive function and reduce anxiety. It can help you relax and connect more easily during social interaction; however, unlike alcohol or drugs, it doesn’t impair motor skills and is completely non–addictive. Kava is also known as a gentle psychedelic that brings about creative and introspective thinking and can make you more empathetic. With all of that said, like in the world of cannabis, there are many strains and forms of kava that can vary drastically in terms of their quality, potency, purity and overall effects. Tru KavaTM products contain ”Noble kavas”, which are the absolute highest quality of all kava cultivars. Absolutely no pesticides or industrial chemicals are used at any step of their process, and each batch of kava root is independent lab tested to ensure that it meets strict quality and safety standards.
Chinese Herbalists have studied the anti-aging functions of herbs for thousands of years. They are basically the original biohackers, and they believe that your physical strength and vitality is derived from a careful balance of Yin and Yang in the body, as well as the dynamic interplay of one’s inherited Qi (with the Qi created through proper nutrition and digestion). Radical Roots brings the ancient healing of Chinese Medicine into the modern world by combining the power of herbs with hemp. This unification of Eastern and Western herbal traditions provides potent formulas that can help address the symptoms of various illnesses, naturally.
