The Biohacker Guide

The Biohacker Guide by HVMN is the definitive resource for biohacking, cognitive modulation and human enhancement. We believe that human progress is taking the advancement of ourselves into our own hands and employing technology to track and progress our biology. If computers were the dominant platform of the last century, we believe that the human body is the platform in the 21st century.

We believe that optimization of our biology is an iterative process. We have written protocols that are a good place to start your journey as a biohacker. The Guide cuts through the hype and noise and distills the latest data and research from clinically significant, peer-reviewed studies. We explain the science behind the protocols and list tools to quantify the domains you are trying to optimize. Through these pages, you will find in-depth explanations of each facet of the protocols, from descriptions of the nootropics to descriptions of the biological domains they modify.

You can change your behavior. With self-determination, coaches and friends, self-quantification tools, nootropics, and other resources, there are more ways than ever to improve your quality of life. Here we present the best tools to accomplish your biohacking goals through scientifically vetted approaches that you can implement to improve your life. We hope you find this roadmap useful and engaging. And we look forward to your feedback as we constantly improve the Biohacker Guide.
