What Happened During Dave Asprey’s 10th Annual Biohacking Conference?

Dave Asprey’s 10th Annual Biohacking Conference

Four days might seem like plenty of time to cover a conference dedicated to health and longevity, but the recent Asprey event at the Sheraton Dallas proved otherwise. 

The event could have been divided into three separate areas: the exhibition hall, breakout rooms, and main stage speaking area, each deserving its four-day exploration.

Main Stage Highlights

The Main Stage hosted world-class authorities such as Dr. Joseph Mercola, Dr. Nathan Bryan, Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Patrick Porter, and Bryan Johnson. 

These experts delivered their insights to large, attentive audiences.

Meanwhile, the Breakout Rooms were buzzing with activity, offering multiple presentations simultaneously to smaller yet equally engaged groups.

Exhibit Hall Experience

I spent most of my time in the Exhibit Hall, interacting with attendees and observing their biohacking interests firsthand. Here are my key takeaways:

Youthful Attendance

A significant proportion of the biohacker attendees were surprisingly young. 

Unlike other anti-aging and longevity conferences that tend to attract middle-aged and older individuals, this event saw a larger turnout of younger biohackers. 

The Silver Seniors were present but in much smaller numbers.

Lack of NAD Awareness

Despite focusing on living longer and healthier lives, many attendees were unaware of NAD and its role as a foundational, effective biohack supplement. 

Over 70% of those I spoke with needed to learn about NAD.

If you are not familiar with NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide), it is a vital coenzyme found in every cell of the body. 

It plays a crucial role in energy production, DNA repair, and regulating cellular processes. 

As we age, NAD levels decline, which can contribute to various age-related health issues. 

Boosting NAD levels can enhance energy metabolism, improve brain function, support healthy aging, and promote longevity. 

By maintaining optimal NAD levels, you can potentially reduce the risk of chronic diseases and improve overall well-being.

Importance of Biomarker Tests

I emphasized the availability of biomarker tests to the mainstream public. 

Biohacking requires measurable baseline data and ways to assess and compare results over time. 

Many attendees were unaware of such tests, especially the Intracellular NAD test and Aging SOS full panel offered by Jinfiniti, which measure 22 important factors related to aging.

Cost of Tests vs. Medical Bills

Some attendees balked at the price of biomarker tests. 

However, I pointed out that the cost of medical bills, expensive drugs, and diminished quality of life when one is ill far outweighs the expense of discovering or predicting potential health issues. 

Additionally, tests can determine if a current NAD supplement is effective or if one is wasting time and money.

Risks of Random Supplementation

Many biohackers were surprised to learn that indiscriminately taking a variety of supplements can harm their health. 

Functional medicine and anti-aging practices have noted increasing kidney and liver damage in individuals who purchase and use all the “latest” supplements without understanding how they interact or if they are necessary for their wellness. 

We saw that the number of supplements taken does not always correlate with optimal health.

Addressing Serious Health Issues

Perhaps most satisfying was helping attendees with serious health issues that their current medical professionals could not resolve. 

At least five visitors to our booth explained conditions that limited their daily functioning. In each case, we discovered sub-optimal intracellular NAD levels as a contributing factor. 

We look forward to following these new customers on their NAD optimization journey, which promises more energy, better mental focus, improved sleep, less inflammation, and other health benefits.

TAO: Harnessing Biomarker Testing Data for Biohacking Success

During my talk, I discussed the critical role of NAD in biohacking safely. 

When I asked the audience if they believed they could live up to 80 years old or even delay and avoid death, the majority raised their hands, showing a keen interest in longevity.

I introduced them to an ancient Chinese philosophy of Taoism, which I have adapted into the TAO steps for optimizing health. These steps are:

  • Test: Identify abnormalities or deficiencies in your body.
  • Act: Define and implement interventions to bring levels within optimal ranges.
  • Optimize: Continuously evaluate the efficacy of these interventions, adjusting actions and dosages for safety and maximum benefit.

By following TAO, you can:

  • Pinpoint specific health issues.
  • Set and achieve optimal health targets.
  • Regularly assess and refine your approach for better outcomes.

In other words, regular testing is key to optimizing NAD levels and your overall health. Repeat testing ensures that your interventions are effective and safe.

Dave Asprey’s 10th Annual Biohacking Conference was an enlightening event that brought together experts and enthusiasts focused on health and longevity. 

The Exhibit Hall experience highlighted the importance of educating biohackers about foundational supplements like NAD and the necessity of biomarker tests for personalized health tracking. 

The conference underscored the need for informed supplement use and the potential for optimizing health through targeted interventions.
