#60: Boomer Anderson – The concrete steps to evaluating what biohacks to try and test

by | Nov 4, 2020 | Health & Fitness, Performance

Have you ever felt a little confused with all the new health and biohacking advice? I surely have… There are so many claims and contradictory advice that it feels like you need to dedicate yourself full-time to understand what is good and what is not.    


I, therefore, reached out to my buddy Boomer Anderson who has done exactly that, and that is what this episode is all about.

Boomer runs the podcast Decoding Superhuman which currently has 180+ episodes with experts covering various domains of health optimization. 

He is also involved in the HOMe/HOPe Association, a non-profit organization that educates doctors and practitioners on how to optimize patients and clients for health. As a health optimization practitioner himself then he is on a mission to elevate the human experience through health. 

He has also been through the health rollercoaster himself. Having worked 8-years at a top investment bank traveling, 200,000+ miles a year, Boomer was diagnosed with heart disease at the age of 30. 


Boomer shares his journey from sickness back to health, his concrete framework for evaluating what to test first, and how to determine if it’s working for you. He talks about some of his top biohacks. He then rounds it all up with some insights on the hot topic of nootropics also known as brain enhancement supplements.
