What is biohacking?
Biohackers are a subculture of lifestyle pioneers with the goal to liberate themselves from the limitations of nature, age, disease and dependence on outdated models of health. With a foundation of human evolutionary biology, it incorporates intermittent fasting with specific dietary and supplemental tweaks and biofeedback technologies to provide evidence-based results in real-time. This new technology based approach to wellness is now taking Malaysia by storm!
The principle biohack to improve health, reduce inflammation and to lose weight is to activate a natural process called "ketogenesis" that we normally only experience when we are fasting. Scientists have discovered a shortcut to this process that involves adding specific oils and fats, particularly MCT Oil, to our diets and restricting all but the most natural carbohydrates, refined sugars, starches and all processed foods.
Losing weight gets progressively more difficult the older we get as hormonal imbalance, together with less mobility slows even further our rate of metabolism. The secret is to implement small but fundamental changes that can be maintained over a long period of time, indeed for the rest of your life. We can enjoy many of the foods we love but we need to tweak them to support metabolism and fat burning and not fat gain.
A summary of the 10 basic principles of our Rainforest Herbs Biohacking Lifestyle are:

Remove refined sugars from your diet in all its hidden forms
Sugar is the key orchestrator of inflammation leading to obesity, insulin resistance and high LDL cholesterol. We promote a step by step process of incorporating low carbohydrate and healthy fats to your current diet. This includes increasing non-starchy vegetables, nuts and berries with high quality oils and fats. Protein from meat, fish, eggs should be from grass-fed or organic source and not be excessive in quantity. Not included is refined, processed foods, low fat foods and foods with chemical additives.
Get active and move more
Adopt a more active lifestyle and an exercise program that supports the growth of lean muscle mass.
Practice Intermittent Fasting
Research has shown that fasting extends our memory and lifespan due to the protective effects of the ketones produced on our brain and nervous systems.
Coconut Oil is a missing link to health
Cook with Coconut Oil and add coconut products to your diet. These contains medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) that are used as a higher form of energy by cells and support weight loss not weight gain. Replace all processed polyunsaturated Omega 6 oils in your kitchen with Virgin Coconut Oil and Odourless Coconut Oil.
Support detoxification, antioxidant status and liver health
Southeast Asia has some of the most potent cellular antioxidants in Turmeric Liquid and Andrographis herb, Hempedu Bumi Plus.
Womens hormonal support
Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for post menopausal balance with Pueraria mirifica and antioxidant support with Moringa Tea & Misai Kucing Tea as their unique anti-inflammatory properties supports the switch to fat burning.
Male hormonal support
Natural Testosterone and anti-aromatase support with Tongkat Ali. Tongkat Ali has been shown to deal with declining testosterone and hormonal imbalance in middle aged men.
Support mental and emotional health and sleep via biofeedback technologies.
Monitor the results of your biohacking lifestyle
Utilize the latest technologies, ketone monitors and utilise wearable devices that support real time health and sleep monitoring. This also includes regular professional blood tests with a Medical Professional to monitor all available health parameters.

We are faced with a race against time as our bodies cannot withstand a diet and lifestyle that is not in harmony with our evolution indefinitely. When we are young we can usually get away with a much higher form of dietary and lifestyle abuse but eventually the punishment will become apparent in disease and the necessity to take some form of pharmaceutical medicine. Once we reach this point of pharmaceutical dependency then we are often caught in a negative health spin that will not stop unless dramatic changes in improving health are implemented right away. To achieve this we may need to educate ourselves on a completely new model of health and take full responsibility ourselves.
These straightforward biohacks have been shown to be effective in achieving natural weight loss while also improving health and disease prevention as we age. If you have an existing illness and are on doctor prescribed medication then feel free to email us your specific enquiry and always consult with your healthcare provider before making changes if chronic health issues with multiple pharmaceutical dependencies are present. The key to a biohacking lifestyle is the emphasis on health monitoring and prevention, both that we can do ourselves on a moment to moment basis and with the help of accurate medical diagnosis. This allows us to make informed adjustments and improvements based on this regular health biofeedback. Utilizing technology is the biohackers secret weapon.
