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:

Recipe & Content provided by Jordan Pie

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.

Your Health WAKE-UP Call!

By Renew Life Team | December 22, 2014 from the Renew Life Blog

 We all want to be our healthiest selves, there is no question. People spend thousands of dollars a year on healthcare, supplements, gyms, weight loss products and more. But what if there was an underlying issue that is zapping your energy and degrading your health? There is, it is called TOXICITY.

Detoxification is the body’s natural process of elimination or neutralization of toxic materials from cells, organs and the bloodstream. Cleansing is the action of helping your body to perform detoxification more thoroughly. If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight, then listen up! One of the ways the body protects itself from toxins is to retain fat and water. It holds onto water to dilute water soluble toxins and it stores fat to dilute fat soluble toxins. When you cleanse, you allow the body to release these toxins and the water and fat that can accompany them. Studies have also shown that one of the most common toxins in our environment, organochorines, get stored in our fat cells. They have been shown to reduce metabolic rate and alter appetite hormones. If you want to lose weight permanently, cleansing should be part of your plan.

The good news is that you don’t have to follow extreme diets in order to cleanse your body. There are many herbal cleansing formulations that are designed to work regardless of diet or lifestyle. This is important because cleansing should enhance your life, not interrupt it.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should be cleansing on a regular basis:

  • Constipation
  • Bad breath or body odor
  • Fatigue
  • Poor skin
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Sensitivity to chemicals or perfume smells
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Trouble losing weight especially around the middle
  • Headaches
  • Low libido
  • Suffer from a lot of colds and flus throughout the year
  • Gas and bloating after meals

It is important to look for a total body cleanse that supports each of the body’s seven channels of elimination as these organs work together to detoxify the body. The seven channels of elimination are:

  • The Liver – changes or detoxifies harmful toxins into substances that can be safely eliminated from the body.
  • The Colon – eliminates toxins from the liver as well as the waste which has accumulated in the intestines.
  • The Blood – flows through the vascular system and carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body while removing harmful waste.
  • The Lymphatic System – eliminates poisons from cells through a network of vessels that extend throughout the body.
  • The Skin – eliminates waste and toxins through perspiration.
  • The Lungs – expel toxins through breathing (ex. Carbon dioxide). Deep breathing stimulates lymphatic flow to eliminate toxins.
  • The Kidneys – receive water-soluble waste from the liver, so that they can be further filtered and finally eliminated through the bladder.

Depending on your state of health, you can experience a range of results while cleansing. Customers report results ranging from weight loss, increased energy, improved health and vitality, clearer thinking, brighter complexion and an increase in bowel movements (quantity and volume). If you have a high level of toxicity you may experience symptoms like headaches, flu like symptoms and skin break outs when you start the program but these should subside within a few days.

If you are serious about improving your health this year, make cleansing part of your health maintenance plan. You won’t believe how much better you’ll feel!
