Dave Asprey, Founder and CEO spent 20 years to hack his own biology, ‘biohacking’ and upgraded his brain, he lost over 100 pounds and maximized his performance. The proprietary Bulletproof process optimizes every step of coffee production for performance by minimizing the opportunity for performance-robbing mold toxins that can contribute to chronic health issues.
Bulletproof Coffee Beans are meticulously grown at high altitude on single estates in Guatemala, are hand-harvested, carefully processed and roasted to maintain maximum integrity and flavor. The final roast undergoes proprietary lab testing to verify that the coffee meets the Bulletproof quality control and purity standards. Bulletproof coffee beans are grown, harvested & roasted to minimize the opportunity of mold toxins and undergo third-party lab-testing for 27 types of the most common mold toxins. Beans are medium roasted in small batches to enhance the naturally occurring antioxidant capacity and flavor, supporting energy, mental focus and performance.
Bulletproof’s Brain Octane is 100% Caprylic Acid, the most ketogenic MCT from the most precious part of the coconut. Brain Octane is the shortest of the MCTs and is 18-times more concentrated in Caprylic Acid than regular coconut oil. Supporting cognitive function, it is processed rapidly and easily digested, being quickly and easily absorbed by the brain & body and is not stored as fat. It converts the most ketogenic MCT into energy and is used by the brain faster than other fats or oils. It is metabolized differently than other types of fat and does not increase cholesterol, making it the top choice for reaching peak brain performance all day. It is odorless, flavorless and liquid at room temperature and can be substituted for other edible oils to support more intense mental activity.
MCT Oil isn’t just for coffee! You can make all kinds of tasty treats with it – check this recipe out:
This is a delicious keto chocolate shake with minimal ingredients that takes less than 2 minutes to make. It’s low-carb, contains quality fats and protein, and is full of energy. The cinnamon and vanilla both add depth to the flavor to this shake and the added coconut milk makes it smooth and creamy. I also love adding in a pinch of quality salt when I make any type of chocolate recipe because it enhances and balances out the chocolate flavor.
These gluten free vegan balls are the perfect protein packed snack for all occasions
This is a guest post written by Erica Streick, CNP from Organika’s Blog
These gluten free vegan protein balls are a great way to get a kick of energy during you midday slump without overloading on processed sugars and empty calories.
The cacao nibs add a nice crunch while providing high amounts of antioxidants like polyphenols, which are great for anti-aging and cardiovascular health. This snack is fiber rich making it great for blood sugar regulation, colon health, as well as keeping you satiated for longer. I added a scoop of Organika® Vege Pro plant-based protein powder to offer 21g of plant-based protein. This protein has a unique blend of 8 medicinal mushrooms containing adaptogenic and immune-modulating properties to give your immune system a boost.
Not only are these energy balls full of nutrients but they taste like a treat and satisfy any sweet cravings you may have. I make these ahead of time and keep them in the freezer since they are great for work, pre workout snacks and sweet cravings alike!

Ultimate Maca Energy maca root has many health benefits and scientifically tested properties. In addition to being a source of vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids and complex carbohydrates, Ultimate Maca Energy also contains an impressive array of bioactive components and antioxidants, which are responsible for its numerous benefits.
The Various Benefits of Maca
Maca is a well-known and powerful adaptogen, which means that it is a substance that helps to increase the body’s natural resistance to environmental stresses. Recent human clinical studies have provided convincing scientific evidence supporting supplementation for healthy mood balance during menopause.
How Maca Works
Maca is loaded with vital nutrients in bioavailable forms which assist the body in its on-going process of regeneration, ultimately helping to replenish and recuperate from different problems and providing ultimate balance and wellbeing. Its actions focus mainly on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, assisting the body in balancing hormones. This is where the main benefits associated with maca can be noted (e.g. mood balance).
Ultimate Maca Energy is certified by the Natural Agricultural U
niversity of La Molina in Peru and also by Skal. The National Agricultural University of La Molina in Peru is an independent entity funded by the government of Peru that oversees all the agricultural and related activities in different areas of the country.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is one of the most intensively studied cardio-protective nutrients, which can also increase overall energy and act as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals.
Because standard CoQ10 is poorly absorbed, a number of technologies have been developed to improve its bioavailability. Unfortunately, while these products may dramatically increase CoQ10 absorption in some people, they have little or no effect in others.
Quality of Life’s CoQ10-SR delivers sustained release over 24 hours, contains MicroActive® CoQ1 which is the only form of CoQ10 shown in human clinical studies to have 100% enhanced absorption across all test subjects. CoQ10-SR comes in a vegetarian capsule!
– Double CoQ10 levels from baseline in 3 weeks
– Delivers sustained release over 24 hours
– Is 3x better absorbed than regular CoQ10
– Is 2x better absorbed than solubilized CoQ10 softgels
