No matter where in the world you live, things are a bit chaotic right now, which makes rest and recovery more critical than ever. For this edition of the Dave Asprey Box, I wanted to send out items to help you keep calm and pamper yourself. The various self-care items you’ll find in your box will help you unwind, keep calm, and feel your best no matter what you’re going through. The better you feel, the more relaxed and resilient you can stay in the face of any challenges life may throw your way. By taking care of yourself first, you can develop more capacity to have empathy for others. And since we’re in the midst of the holidays, many of these items also make for thoughtful and timely gifts that can be shared with your loved ones.
As always, I sincerely thank you for subscribing to the Dave Asprey Box, and I wish you the merriest of holiday seasons from my family to yours!

As a subscriber to the Dave Asprey Box, you’re likely passionate about taking control of your biology and your life. That’s the essence of Biohacking, right? Chances are many of you are also interested in helping others reach their full potential. If this sounds like you, then its time to check out the Human Potential Institute Coach Training Program.
I designed this alongside my friend, physician, and human-potential leader, Dr. Mark Atkinson. The program combines premium life coaching with cutting edge insights from positive psychology, nutrition, and high-level neuroscience. When it comes to feeling and performing your best, there’s a lot more than just eating clean, taking the right supplements, and exercising the right way. Getting your software working properly is every bit as important as fine-tuning your hardware, and that’s what the Human Potential Institute is all about.
This training is accredited by the world’s leading professional organization for coaches, the International Coach Federation. By enrolling in and completing the training program, you’ll gain the skills necessary to become a highly effectively and certified coach so you can teach others how to feel and perform their best.
Finally, the Human Potential Institute gifted you with a star-shaped stress reliever in your box! If you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, it can be incredibly powerful to take just one minute to squeeze this star while breathing to return you to a state of calm and centeredness. I am a fan of Box Breathing because it works. You can access a video about it on daveasprey.com. For all the high-level Biohacking tools and methods available to us, sometimes it’s a great reminder that it’s the little things that can have the most impact.
Combine premium life coaching with cutting edge insights to help yourself (and others) perform and feel your best.
With the global pandemic, immunity is a topic on everyone’s mind right now. Did you know that 70-80% of your immune system lives in your gut? The easiest thing you can do to support your immune system and maximize your resilience is to reinforce your health from the inside-out. If you listen to Bulletproof Radio, you may have seen episode 629, where I interviewed the team of microbiologists bringing us “Armor-Plated Immortal Probiotics from Space” at Just Thrive.
Just Thrive Probiotic is the first and only 100% all-natural spore form DNA-verified and tested probiotic supplement. As the subject of groundbreaking studies, Just Thrive has demonstrated incomparable effects on the gut and its undeniable connection to the immune system and brain.
Research shows that 99.9% of probiotics on the market die in the harsh acidic environment in your stomach, but 3rd party clinical testing has proven that the proprietary strains in Just Thrive arrive 100% alive in your gut.
These unique spore-based strains are good for more than just encouraging a stronger immune system. Additional studies show that they can help fortify skin health, improve sleep, elevate mood, and even address disorders like leaky gut.
Their probiotics are vegan-friendly and free of common allergens such as gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, and histamines. They are non-GMO and safe for people of all ages, including kids and even pregnant women.
In your box, you’ll find a bottle with a two-week supply, and I’m sure once you feel the difference, you’ll want to make it a part of your routine supplement stack.
Because we wanted to include a powerful tool to help you manage your stress responses, I reached out to my friends at NuCalm. As serendipity would have it, they just launched a new product that makes their clinical-strength neuroscience technology accessible at home!
NuCalm is the world’s only patented neuroscience technology clinically proven to improve sleep quality, manage stress, and boost recovery. Utilizing a three-step system and neuro acoustic software embedded with math-based algorithms, NuCalm can interrupt the body’s stress response system to power down the body and mind and initiate the parasympathetic “rest and repair” state of the nervous system through the promotion of alpha and deep theta brain wave patterns.
Up until now, only highly experienced meditation practitioners were able to activate these deeply restorative brain waves at will, but NuCalm’s technology allows anyone to access this deeply restorative state within minutes without drugs, extensive training, or expensive equipment. Not only will you feel immediate relief, but the benefits of NuCalm are cumulative, meaning the more you use it, the more rested and restored you will feel over time.
NuCalm is the ultimate relaxation hack. It has been used by my friend, Tony Robbins, the U.S. Military, the FBI, 50 professional sports teams, and even in medical clinics to boost recovery rates after surgical procedures.
In your box, you’ll find a full kit with a mask, a 10- pack of biosignal processing discs, and instructions for how to access the software programs in the app to start your NuCalm journey. As a box subscriber, you get 30 days of free access to their software so you can experience the restorative power of their technology, and I’m confident you’ll want to continue to use this system to help you navigate the trying times we find ourselves in.
In the midst of the holidays, we tend to gather with our loved ones to celebrate the things we are grateful for. Oftentimes adult beverages play a part in the celebrations, but even the cleanest of alcoholic beverages can leave you feeling awful and unproductive the next day. The No Days Wasted team developed DHM Detox to combat this exact problem so that you can enjoy your holiday festivities to their fullest.
DHM Detox is a special vitamin supplement designed to proactively fight off the negative effects of alcohol so that you can still kick ass the next day. The optimized formula stops the problem before it gets a chance to start. The product is built on the backbone of DiHydroMyricetin (DHM) herbal extract that has been used in Asia for centuries to combat the adverse effects of drinking.
DHM works to compete with alcohol for GABA receptor sites, which helps reduce glutamate rebound that can disrupt sleep and cause “hangxiety” the next day after drinking. The detox blend also contains several other herbal ingredients, antioxidants, and vitamins that assist with the natural breakdown of acetaldehyde, the toxic by-product of alcohol.
You simply take the two capsules in the packet with water after your first few drinks, and you can increase the servings accordingly if you’re planning on having a big night. The individual serving packets are convenient and easy to take with you if you’re traveling, going out, or attending a gathering with family and friends.
Make sure to visit the No Days Wasted website at NoDaysWasted.co and follow them on social media @NoDaysWastedCo.
Our ability to meet with other people face-to-face may be hindered, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a clean and healthy mouth to keep you looking and feeling your best, even if it’s just for your next video call in your pajamas.
Primal Life Organics produces a wide range of high-quality dental care, hygiene, skincare, and beauty products made from the safest and most effective organic ingredients found in nature.

A charcoal toothbrush and bamboo charcoal dental floss picks give you powerful biodegradable cleaning tools to remove plaque, and the copper tongue scraper is naturally anti-bacterial to help remove bacteria buildup on your tongue that can cause bad breath.

The ancient healing art of reflexology is a timetested method to help people relax and alleviate stress. My friends at Akuspike just released a new reflexology product, and I’m excited to share it with you.
In your box, you’ll find a small felt pouch containing their new Aku Rings. This beautiful copper-plated ring draws blood flow to the fingers and supports balance by stimulating reflex points and corresponding energy zones. Designed with triangular-shaped points, these acupressure rings apply the principles of acupuncture without penetrating the skin. Simply roll the Aku Ring up and down each finger evenly from top to bottom to relax tense muscles, enhance finger function and dexterity, ease arthritic pain, lessen stress and anxiety, and improve concentration and focus.
These rings also make for great stocking stuffers! Check out their full line of recovery and relaxation products if you’re hunting for stress-relief gift ideas for your coworkers, friends, and family.
I’m excited to share the latest product from Bulletproof with you in your box! Our Bulletproof Collagen Bars have been wildly successful as the best-selling bar at some of the largest health-food retail stores in the world in recent years.
To build on that success, I’m proud to announce that Bulletproof is now first-to-market with a truly clean low sugar, chocolate-dipped collagen bar that will delight your taste buds. The nutritional profile, sourcing, and ingredients meet the same high-quality standard Bulletproof has set as the industry leader. And best of all, the macros make these bars a keto-friendly indulgence.
Your box contains a sample of each of the three decadent flavors, and I think you’ll be blown away by the combination of optimal taste and texture the team was able to create. The Bulletproof Collagen Bars continue to be the perfect clean snack for at home or on-the-go, and I hope you’ll find these new chocolate-enrobed bars as irresistible as I do.
Tailor your personal sleep sanctuary for maximum comfort and optimize your deep restorative sleep.
Sleep is the most essential recovery tool we have and something that we need to do well every night in order to look, feel, and perform our best. People often overlook the importance of a good set of pillows, but Sleep Crown has taken pillow technology to a whole new level and has become one of my favorite small business brands in recent years. Founded by my friend, Julie Westervelt, a restorative yoga teacher, Sleep Crown launched at the Biohacking Conference a few years ago and introduced the biohacking community to the concept of weighted sleep therapy.
Sleep research reveals that it’s not just the number of hours of sleep you get every night, but that it’s crucially important that those hours of sleep are uninterrupted. The original Sleep Crown is an over-head pillow engineered to cocoon your head and block out light, muffle sound, and provide a gentle weight to insulate you from ambient disruptions that can wake you in the middle of your restorative deep sleep cycles. A smaller traveler version was released last year, and the newest addition is the Noble Body Pillow for a comforting, full-body hugging sensation.
I can’t even convey how luxurious these pillows feel with their soft bamboo jersey knit fabric pillowcases, and I highly recommend you try them out for yourself. A Sleep Crown would also make for a fantastic holiday gift for anyone in your life who you want to give the gift of better sleep!
One lucky Golden Ticket winner will win the brand new Sleep Crown Noble Body Pillow.
The holiday season is for celebration, not guilt! We’re all conscious about what we eat, but the holidays have a special way of triggering overindulgence. Alcohol often plays a big role.
Over the last 30 years, the wine industry has gone the way of most agribusinesses, with mass production and heavy use of chemicals and additives to make a cheap, consistent product. The FDA has approved over 70 legal additives for wine producers to use, but they don’t need to disclose those ingredients on the label. I gave up drinking alcohol for years because the only wines I could drink were those that were older than I was, but it was always a gamble how I’d feel afterward.
That changed five years ago when I discovered Dry Farm Wines, and they were kind enough to sponsor the Biohacking Conference. They have given me back the gift of wine that I can trust is pure, natural, and always of the highest quality.
Every single bottle of wine from the Dry Farm Wines family meets strict purity criteria. The wines are independently lab-tested and certified to be organically farmed, sugar-free, low in sulfites, low in alcohol, and created with only natural wild yeasts. The lab tests ensure that no toxic thickeners, dyes, or artificial taste modifiers are found in their wines. Their team travels the world to find the purest wines from family growers and deliver them directly to your door.
As you’d expect from such a high-quality company, they back up their wines with a 100% Happiness Promise – if you don’t like the wine for whatever reason, they’ll either ship you a replacement or refund you in full. I don’t drink very often, but when I do, it’s usually a pure Natural Wine from Dry Farm Wines.
As a subscriber to the Dave Asprey Box, you’ll get an extra bottle of pure Natural Wine for just a penny with your first order!
If you’ve read my blog, listened to the podcast, or visited Upgrade Labs, you know I’m a huge proponent of Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF). PEMF therapy works by pulsing magnetic fields in varying frequencies into the body to generate a potent form of energy medicine that acts like a workout for your cells. It’s highly effective because magnetic fields can penetrate the body in ways that other therapies (such as light, vibration, etc.) can’t match. These types of magnetic fields are prevalent in nature, and the Earth itself emits many different varying frequencies that humans have evolved with over millions of years. There numerous research papers and studies demonstrating the many benefits of PEMF therapy, and there is even evidence that it can mitigate the effects of electromagnetic radiation from sources like WiFi and everyday electrical devices.
HAELO uses proprietary, patent-pending technology to deliver a balanced symphony of frequencies mimicking those emitted by the Earth straight to your cells to provide a wide range of targeted benefits, from increased energy to stress relief to better sleep and more. Designed for active people with busy lifestyles, the HAELO is sleek, lightweight, and travel-friendly. With a simple plug-and-play process, you use the app to choose a unique outcome-based frequency setting (most sessions lasting under 8 minutes) to experience a full mind and body reset. You’ll feel the results immediately, and there’s also a cumulative effect that will train every cell in your body to function better over time.
HAELO just launched in November, and I was excited to partner with them to create an exclusive package of offers only for Dave Asprey Box subscribers.
