About the Book
Bulletproof Means Smarter, Faster, Happier. . . .
From the bestselling author and creator of BulletproofTM Coffee comes a revolutionary plan to upgrade your brainpower—in two weeks or less.
For the last decade, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey has worked with world-renowned doctors and scientists to uncover the latest, most innovative methods for enhancing mental and physical performance by taking control of his own biology—a process known as “biohacking.” In his first book, The Bulletproof Diet, Asprey shared his biohacking tips for creating a better body. Now, in Head Strong, Asprey shows readers how to biohack their way to a smarter, faster, sharper brain—in two weeks or less.
Ask yourself: How would your life and health improve if your mind were working at its full potential? You’d be able—possibly for the first time in your life—to do more in less time. Instead of experiencing fatigue, lack of focus, forgetfulness, and food cravings on a dailybasis, you would enjoy sustained energy, productivity, and mental clarity. You’d be able to accomplish even the most difficult tasks with ease and feel confident about everything you do. And instead of getting older, you’d just get better.
In Head Strong, Asprey shows that all of this—and more—is possible. Following his program, which combines the latest insights from neuroscience with a hacker-inspired focus on fast results, you will learn how to take your mental performance to the next level. The Head Strong program will help you
- Supercharge the cellular powerhouses of your brain, the mitochondria, to enhance energy and enhance mental focus
- Power your brain with the nutrients it needs to perform at its best all day long
- Eliminate toxins and other sources of brain “kryptonite” that slow you down
- Reverse inflammation to perform better right now and stay sharp well into your golden years
- Promote neuron growth to enhance your brain’s processing speed and hot-wire you for success
A better brain—and a happier, more productive life—is within reach. It’s time to get Head Strong.
