Keep Track of Longevity Biohacks: Get Insights with Wearable Technology

Electronic devices worn on the body, usually on the wrist, are biohacking technologies that are rightfully gaining popularity. With this modern tech, you can track your metrics, allowing you to know exactly how to hack your longevity.

Wearable Technology Tracks Longevity Data

Getting feedback on how well different systems and processes in your body are functioning is incredibly beneficial for overall health and longevity. Wearable technology, commonly referred to as “wearables,” encompasses a range of electronic devices designed to be worn as accessories, integrated into clothing, or even implanted in the user’s body. Wearables provide biohackers with important data allowing them to make necessary diet, supplement, and lifestyle changes to improve their health.

Continuous Glucose Monitors

Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) measure your blood sugar levels in real time. CGMs are typically worn on the back of your upper arm and use a tiny sensor to measure glucose levels in the interstitial fluid (the fluid that surrounds your cells) beneath the skin. Some CGMs also come with accompanying apps that track your blood sugar levels, provide in-depth analysis, and alert you if your levels become too high or too low. Keeping your blood sugar levels within a healthy range is key for longevity. High blood sugar levels are associated with a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and decreased lifespan.1

Fitness Trackers

Fitness trackers are perhaps the most well-known type of wearable technology. They’re designed to track your physical activity, including steps taken, calories burned, and distance covered. Many fitness trackers also come equipped with heart rate monitors, which can provide valuable insights into your heart health. They can also measure heart rate variability (HRV), an indicator of how much physical and psychological stress your body is under. HRV can also tell you how recovered your muscles and nervous system are after a workout.2

Sleep Trackers

High quality sleep is incredibly important for cellular repair. Moreover, poor sleep is linked to reduced lifespan.3 Sleep trackers are on the market to help you optimize your sleep quality. These wearables track your sleep patterns, including the amount of time spent in each stage of sleep and the number of times you wake up during the night. By analyzing this data, sleep trackers can provide personalized recommendations for improving sleep quality. These recommendations may include going to bed earlier, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, or reducing screen time before bedtime.

Blood Pressure Monitors

High blood pressure is a leading cause of heart disease, stroke, and other serious health problems.4 The danger of high blood pressure is that it can sneak up on you. Indeed, symptoms are rare, meaning the only way to tell if you have high blood pressure is by measuring it. Blood pressure monitors are wearable devices that can help you keep track of your blood pressure levels throughout the day. In fact, research shows that home blood pressure monitoring is associated with reduced risk of heart attacks, strokes, and death.5 

Some blood pressure monitors are designed to be worn on the wrist or arm, while others are integrated into watches. By regularly monitoring your blood pressure you can determine whether it’s high, and if it is, make lifestyle changes to help lower your blood pressure. Such lifestyle changes can include increasing physical activity or reducing sodium intake.

“Wearable devices can transmit information to a physician or to the user in real-time, allowing the wearer to actively participate in monitoring and maintaining their health.”

Sauna Exposure

Hot Biohack: Sauna Exposure Improves Longevity and Feels Great, Too

Centuries of international tradition are now supported by science: Frequent sauna exposure is one of the best ways to improve heart health, enhance recovery, and increase lifespan. Who knew biohacking could be so relaxing?

Blurry image skewed by water droplets of a woman in a towel lying in a sauna.

Sauna Exposure Biohacks Longevity With Heat

For centuries, cultures around the globe have recognized the importance of heat therapy including saunas, spas, and sweat lodges. Modern research has revealed that regular sauna use has a long list of health benefits, including reduced risk of many different diseases and increased healthspan and lifespan.1

One of the most powerful mechanisms behind the benefits of sauna exposure is the activation of heat shock proteins, a group of proteins produced by our cells in response to high temperatures.2 These proteins increase the body’s resilience to stress, help repair damaged proteins, and improve immune function. Activation of heat shock proteins is linked to increased lifespan in many different organisms. Sauna use also increases the body’s natural antioxidant defenses which help fight oxidative stress. Finally, saunas reduce inflammation, which increases as we age and is an underlying cause of nearly all age-related diseases.3

Research Shows: The More Sauna Time, The Better

The most studied effect of sauna use is on the cardiovascular system. Sauna use causes the heart rate to elevate and blood vessels to dilate, improving circulation. Saunas also benefit the heart by reducing the stiffness of blood vessels and lowering cholesterol levels and blood pressure. The largest study on sauna use and health outcomes was conducted in Finland, where they monitored the sauna habits of over 2,300 middle-aged men. Researchers found that men who used the sauna 4-7 times a week had a 50% reduction in the risk of death from heart disease compared to those who only used it once a week.1 The effect was dose-dependent, meaning the more frequent the sauna use, the lower the risk of dying from heart disease. This study strongly suggests that it is the sauna use, and not some other related health variable, that’s responsible for the reduced risk for heart disease.3 

Sauna use has also been shown to:

  • Reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease4
  • Boost exercise recovery and athletic performance5
  • Reduce symptoms of depression5 
  • Improve symptoms of arthritis5
  • Enhance immune function5 

By increasing sweating, saunas allow your body to evacuate many dangerous and disease-inducing toxins including heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, and lead.6

The therapeutic benefits of saunas occur at temperatures generally ranging from 113 °F to 212 °F (45 °C to 100 °C).3

Consult Your Doctor Before Using Sauna Exposure

By improving heart health and reducing inflammation and oxidative stress, sauna use can help prevent or delay many age-related diseases, most notably heart disease.7,8 The sauna study from Finland found a 40% reduction in death from all causes in the most frequent (4-7 times a week) sauna users compared to the least frequent (once a week).1,3 

Saunas can help biohackers improve multiple aspects related to aging to increase both healthspan and lifespan. That said, make sure you’re healthy enough to use the sauna. Certain groups of people including pregnant women and those with unstable heart disease or certain autoimmune conditions that affect sweating should either stay away or consult a physician before participating in sauna use.

Cold Exposure

Cold Exposure Is a Chillingly Effective Biohack for Improving Longevity

While many biohackers may turn on chilly water in the shower from time to time, they may not realize how cold exposure practices can enhance resilience, improve immune function, and burn fat — all while increasing longevity.

Bottom view of two polar bears swimming.

Cold Exposure Is Proven To Increase Longevity

Cold exposure is the practice of exposing oneself to cold temperatures for short periods of time. When your body is exposed to cold temperatures, a number of beneficial adaptations occur that promote longevity. Cold exposure has been shown to extend the lifespans of model organisms including yeast, fruit flies, and mice.1,2,3 In fact, dropping the core temperature of mice by just 0.5 °F (0.3 °C) increased lifespan by up to 20%.3

Cold Shock Proteins Biohack Inflammation

One of the main effects of cold exposure is the activation of cold shock proteins in the body, which are linked to numerous health benefits. They increase your cells’ resistance to many different forms of stress and help reduce inflammation, an underlying cause of many age-related diseases.4 

Cold Exposure Reduces Brown Fat

Brown fat is a metabolically active fat tissue that burns calories. Cold exposure increases the amount of brown fat in your body, helping you burn fat and prevent weight gain, as well as lower your triglyceride levels, and increase your insulin sensitivity.4

Depression and Disease Can Also Be Improved With Cold

Cold exposure has been found to induce a number of other health benefits. It can improve circulation, boost the immune system, and improve exercise recovery, brain function, and mental health.4,5 Cold exposure in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease actually slowed the disease progression by protecting neurons in the brain from damage.6 In one trial, participants who were exposed to -300°F in a cryotherapy chamber for a couple of minutes saw their depression and anxiety symptoms reduced by half.7

The Colder, the Better for Biohacking Overall Health

There are a number of ways to expose your body to cold temperatures, ranging from budget-friendly to advanced options. An easy way to get cold exposure is to simply fill up a bathtub with water and add ice until the temperature reaches 40°F to 60°F. Submerge your body for at least 5 minutes, progressively working your way to longer exposure. Cold showers are also effective. The colder the water is, the less time you need in the water to reap the benefits. The most advanced method for cold exposure is a cryotherapy chamber, which provides the coldest temperature and greatest activation of cold shock proteins. Cryotherapy temperatures can range from -180°F to -240°F (-120°C to -150°C).

Cold exposure is one of the most affordable ways to biohack your stress resilience, boost your metabolism, and improve your mood. It works by activating pathways known to enhance lifespan and contribute to longevity. Why not start today?

Hyperbaric Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Therapy (HBOT) Is an Advanced Biohack for Longevity

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT, dramatically increases oxygen levels in the body using a pressurized chamber. This treatment is a promising biohack for accelerating injury recovery, reducing inflammation, and fighting aging.

Hyperbaric Therapy Heals the Body Inside Out

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Treatments usually last 1.5 to 2 hours and have a wide range of health benefits, including the potential to increase longevity. HBOT works by increasing the amount of oxygen in the body. This increase in oxygen levels can help promote healing and improve the function of damaged tissues.1 Additionally, the increased level of oxygen can help the body fight infections and reduce inflammation–two factors that greatly impact aging.2,3,4 The therapy is non-invasive and has an incredible safety profile, however, it must be performed in the presence of a trained professional.

HBOT Can Actually Improve Cognitive Health

One of the common applications for HBOT is in healing traumatic brain injury (TBI). By increasing oxygen and blood flow to the brain, HBOT facilitates repair, helps recover lost cognitive function, and improves health outcomes for TBI patients.6,7,8 Aging is known to cause reduced blood flow in the brain, therefore HBOT may be able to help slow cognitive decline and the loss of neurons that occur with age by improving blood flow.

Slow Skin Aging and Support Cells for Better Longevity

HBOT may help address some of the fundamental processes of aging, including telomere shortening and senescence cells. Telomeres are the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes that shorten as we age. Senescent cells, on the other hand, are damaged cells that stop dividing and start releasing pro-inflammatory compounds into the surrounding tissue causing dysfunction and disease. Both processes play a key role in aging.4 In one study, HBOT was shown to lengthen telomeres by 20%.10 It also prevented healthy immune cells from turning into senescent cells. HBOT may also slow skin aging by boosting collagen and elastin content, increasing the formation of new blood vessels, and removing senescent skin cells.11

While more research is needed, HBOT represents a promising biohack for slowing the aging process, reducing inflammation and improving blood flow, and possibly increasing lifespan.

“Each time a patient undergoes a hyperbaric treatment, the physician is playing a symphony with their genes using different pressures and different amounts of oxygen.”
