Dave Asprey's Essential Biohacking Tool

Infrared saunas are Biohacking 101

At the 2024 Biohacking Conference, Dave said there were two tools that are foundational to a biohacker’s lifestyle: cold plunge and infrared saunas. Sunlighten saunas have been in his personal toolkit at home and at Upgrade labs for a decade.


Infrared sauna is a lifestyle tool that targets 5 key markers of aging

Enhances cellular energy
A mitochondria inside of a cell

AGING MARKER: Mitchondrial Dysfunction
Mitochondria are like cell engines, providing energy (ATP) for every part of our body. With age, these engines can wear out, causing decreased ATP, increased oxidative stress and impaired cellular energy metabolism.  

Infrared light helps by boosting mitochondria with energy, improving function, and making more “engines” when necessary. This could counteract mitochondrial dysfunction, keeping cells healthy and helping slow aging.

Sunlighten Infrared Sauna Options

I’ve used my Sunlighten at least 500 times over the last few years. Every time I use it, I come out stronger, faster, thinner and happier. This is a really important biohack if you want to live a long time.

The Human Upgrade: Body Detox & Depression Relief

Dave Asprey, founder & CEO of Bulletproof and bestselling author, uses his Sunlighten sauna for reducing inflammation, detoxification, and boosting immunity. 

Sweating is a critical human detox function, yet most people don’t sweat regularly or enough.  Sweating helps the body make use of its ability to use the skin to eliminate toxins.  The body is very effective at eliminating toxins this way, but it only works if we make the body sweat. Sunlighten saunas are highly effective for detoxification because of their highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon® far infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by 2 to 3 degrees.

Sunlighten co-founder Connie Zack joined Dave on his podcast to talk about the far-reaching benefits of sauna use and what’s new in the field of infrared light. Watch their discussion now. 

A whole-body longevity hack for mind, body and spirit.

“What are you doing with your body to support your mindset?” Dave emphasizes the importance of not just living longer, but becoming a kinder person. An infrared sauna can be a sanctuary for meditation and inner connection work, while the light waves do their work on your cells, tissues and organs.
