Wellness trends are all over social media these days. Biohacking, the latest internet fad, has recently taken the internet by storm after Bryan Johnson, the creator of KernelCo and Blueprint, claimed that he is investing $2 million each year to reduce his biological age. 

What is biohacking?


According to Forbes, biohacking refers to a multitude of strategies for optimising the body’s ability for optimal function—and maybe even increasing an individual’s life expectancy. While some biohacking approaches may sound excessive, others, such as meditation and intermittent fasting, have been proven to be helpful.

Why is the wellness trend buzzing on the internet?

“Biohacking is the practice of modifying one’s biology, typically through self-experimentation and the use of technology, in order to improve physical and cognitive abilities, optimise health, and achieve personal goals.” 


Currently, #biohacking has 791 million views on TikTok and is growing in popularity, especially among Millennials and Generation Z, who are “becoming more interested in the scientific research behind their health and wellbeing and are also open to experimenting with new techniques,” a wellness company spokesperson told the Independent.

Here are some examples of the trend! 

Biohacking can be defined as the use of nearly any technology with the goal of improving one’s biology in some way. There are numerous categories and options for the mechanism.

One example is age biohacking, which makes use of cellular senescence. As people get older, this strategy becomes more prevalent. It is commonly conducted by people between the ages of 35 and 50, as people in this life stage begin to notice signs of aging. As a result, many people are concerned about the health and regeneration of cells.

They believe that if the formation of damaged cells can be avoided or reversed, then so can the cosmetic and physiological changes associated with aging. 

Another common technique is energy biohacking, which involves conserving energy by getting enough rest and sleep. Stress alleviation is included in this category since chronic stress may be exceedingly draining on an individual’s overall energy. 

A third category includes food and biohacking, whether the goal is enhanced digestion, weight loss, or metabolic efficiency. This is because most people grasp the technique of controlling what, how, and when they eat. 

Food modification for optimal cellular nutrition is another prevalent biohacking method. Diet and nutrition biohacking include the use of blood sugar supplements, continuous glucose monitors, metabolism monitoring equipment, intermittent fasting techniques, and so on. 

How is the trend becoming popular?

Biohacking is especially popular among sports enthusiasts, as players are constantly looking for ways to improve their training and performance. According to a new study published in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, one session of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can also boost brain neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to rewire or alter its neural connections.
