9 Ways to Biohack Your Healthspan and Improve Longevity

    Advancements in Western medicine and technology have extended the average American lifespan, but a longer lifespan doesn't always translate to an increase in healthy years. In fact, your chronological age may not accurately represent your body's biological, or your InnerAge, at all. InsideTracker’s new InnerAge 2.0 is an innovative tool that reveals your biological age—a measure of how well your body is aging internally.

    Feeling Sick? These Symptoms Mean You Should Skip Your Workout Today

    We've all weighed the costs and benefits of working out when sick: My throat hurts, so I'll stick to weights and avoid heavy breathing. Or, maybe a good sweat will break this fever. Often times, it just boils down to, yeah I feel like crap, but I have a plan I have to stick to. So we compromise and try to push through our workouts, even though we’re suffering (more than normal, that is). After all, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Well, sometimes it can do more harm than good. ...

    Natural Ways to Stay Healthy All Winter Long

But, the minute the sniffles start, our eyes begin to water, or we get that raw feeling in the back of our throat, we expect (and hope) that our immune system will pick up the slack.

A study from 2013 found that 1-in-4 men seeking treatment for ED were ...

    Have you ever wished you could sleep all day without judgement from others, or even worse, yourself? We’ll admit – it’s certainly crossed our minds once or twice. With the fast-paced, dog-eat-dog world out there, restful nights can be few and far between.  So to help combat the imbalance between hours spent awake and those spent sleeping, we’ve created our “Sleep Better” goal.
