Biohacking Your Diet: The Power of Nutrigenomics and Personalized Nutrition

Biohacking Your Diet: The Power of Nutrigenomics and Personalized Nutrition

Your New Biohacking Regimen for a Better Daily Routine Ahead

Biohacking is a proven new method to get started with elevating your daily well-being. Strengthening your immune system, cognitive function, and cardiovascular health are all pursued through biohacking techniques that range from lighthearted to rigorous in difficulty.

Beyond these methods, there are also supplements (like nootropics) that folks have started working into their diet to complement the new strategies they’re trying, maximizing what they get out of their daily routine, as well as their mental refocusing.

At Troomy, our team’s lovingly crafted five blends of medicinal mushrooms in order to help reshape your daily routine, and also give you the best chance of making a lasting impact through your new biohacking regimen. 

Today, we'll take a deep dive into what sets medicinal mushrooms apart, different biohacking methods you might want to try, and more. 

Biohacking - Health Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms - Troomy Nootropics

Defining Biohacking

Biohacking is a popular do-it-yourself (DIY) method for boosting your overall well-being, which focuses on habits that you can create in a daily plan to elevate your productivity, reshape your mindset in how you approach the day ahead, and reduce your risk of developing health conditions.

In practice, there are three forms of biohacking:

  • DIY biology: Using similar, traditional methods of study, DIY biology offers a route for any group of people to try self-experimentation and find effective strategies for influencing their body’s reactions to stress, strength training, mood swings, etc.

  • Nutrigenomics: Focuses on nutrition and how food interacts with genes. Gene editing and manipulating the way your body responds to different diets/fasting methods. 

  • Grinders: Often tied into technology use, grinders are more human augmentation-focused, which relies on tech to modify the body’s performance. This offers wearable technology (or implant technology) for biohackers to use and track their progress at a high level.

When it comes to biohacking your body, the biggest shared principle across these three areas is consistency. To really start seeing results, you have to give each method a real effort with regularity.

Does Biohacking Create Health Problems?

While self-experimentation, there’s always room for risk of developing health issues depending on the severity of the experimentation. However, when it comes to biohacking, health problems are rarely created and sustained. Especially when you’re entirely in control of the biohacking strategies you implement, you can always stop if they start to feel detrimental to your overall well-being.

In contrast to health problems, there are a ton of benefits you might be able to take advantage of with different biohacking strategies. 

Stress Management and Health Benefits of Good Habits - Troomy Nootropics

What are Some Benefits of Biohacking?

Stress Management

A popular philosophy surrounding stress is that putting yourself in more stressful situations will acclimate your body to the sensations of stress and sort of “numb” the usual cognitive and cardiovascular impact.

For most users, it will really depend on how you take stress, how you can manage it, and your productivity with stress already influencing your function. As you start implementing biohacking into your routine, new habits like cold showers or intermittent fasting could impact how you deal with stress as well. In nutrigenomics and the study of the nutritional impact on your productivity and stress, diet can be a huge factor to the way you intercept and regulate stress, as fatty/sugary foods are often not very good for keeping your stress levels low.

Folks with anorexia and other eating disorders for example can have major stress around mealtimes, which ties into a lack of confidence overall in one’s body and harsher mood swings.

Regulating Your Mood

Mood has a whole wealth of factors that can be major contributors to your sense of wellness. Diet, rest, hydration, socializing, etc. However, mood goes far beyond just what we eat or how we sleep, and can actually be directly linked to brain function.

Serotonin levels most of your body's function overall, and that starts in the brain. When you're able to keep your serotonin regulated at a "normal" level, you'll be more stable, focused, and productive. Staying happy with biohacking can be great with that boost of clarity you get after a cold-water shower or ice bath, the discipline you get from fasting, or working out to keep your body goals in shape.

Weight Loss

For so many folks today, weight loss is their top priority in health and wellness. While it’s a good strategy to consider, make sure that you’re implementing healthy techniques to try and get started with it, and not go overboard in giving yourself high goals with biohacking and weight loss goals. 

It's important to pace yourself and take your lifestyle shift one step at a time, like starting with diet or exercise, for one. However, if you can get weight loss in tune with biohacking through fasting goals that work for you complemented by good exercise, you'll start to see major results much faster.

Cardiovascular Health

Heart rate and blood pressure are typically top priorities when it comes to keeping your body healthy. While you can try to make complete lifestyle changes with exercise, diet, sleep, and other methods to seek out strong health benefits, advanced cholesterol and blood pressure regulation techniques are a great place to start with helping your body feel better daily.

Several methods within biohacking are fantastic for creating reliable enhancement in these areas of your health. Intermittent fasting for example has a major impact on blood sugar when you’re starting to cut down meal times to a handful of set blocks in your day. It might be advisable to be careful in the early stages, as reducing blood sugar drastically can misshape your entire routine and create a damaging impact on your overall health.

The risk of heart disease developing has run rampant in the United States over the last several decades. This roots in high blood glucose levels that are a struggle with diabetes and other cardiovascular ailments depleting/damaging your blood vessels and nerves in your heart.

Now, getting the right routines and habits in place is going to be crucial to accessing these benefits. While you try them out, there are also a handful of supplements that might make the transition a bit easier.

Supplements and Strategies for Trying Different Types of Biohacking


Caffeine’s a great cognition booster to increase productivity in the classroom or workplace, and is excellent for keeping you on track through brain fog. Your best friend through starting a new biohacking strategy like fasting, 5am club, or other extreme new habits is going to be anything that can boost your energy. 

However, caffeine can be a major detriment to your own health and wellness. The more dependent you get on caffeine and other additives, it can be harder and harder to get up in the morning without some kind of help. Be mindful of how much you use to get through the average day after you start using any caffeine-based supplements or drinks beyond coffee.

Nature and Connecting with the Earth

The human body has an innate connection to Mother Earth that needs to be respected and sustained. When you're able to get fresh air through the day, find times to hike, and otherwise see the outdoors firsthand, these habits can be great cleansers to complement any biohacking strategies. For example, if you're fasting and trying to keep your mind busy, a walk through nature will remind you stay hydrated, and also emphasize a calmer state of mind. 


While caffeine lines most of the supplements in this category, it’s still worth differentiating, as nootropics can cover a wide variety of basis in your health. For most, we closely tie nootropic function to cognition support and helping you stay productive in the office. 

There are all kinds of over-the-counter supplements for boosting function which wouldn’t be tied to healthcare providers in most cases, so make sure that if you have any questions that are condition-based (ADHD, dyslexia, etc.), consult a medical professional on how to proceed with your current intake. 

Cold Water Strategies

Cold showers in the morning might sound awful, but they can actually be a game-changer to the entire day you have ahead. Instead of waking up groggy and drifting into work, cold water showers are proven-quality routes for elevating alertness, boosting immunity, increasing willpower, and more.

Additionally, if you’ve worked out in the track and field space or most contact sports, chances are you’re familiar with ice bath techniques as well. These are great for recovery in both the body and mind, as you’re immediately subjecting your body to high stress by choice, which can be an outstanding rejuvenator for performance output.


Intermittent fasting is a popular route to give fasting a try while developing new dietary values. Although, you should be careful if you're combining fasting with other new habits. Especially if you just started a new fitness regimen, job, or have some added stressors, too much change to your body’s well being can overwhelm the senses easily and make your day ahead a whole lot tougher. Find strategically-structured fasting techniques instead of just "winging it" and seeing what happens.

The Bulletproof Diet

The Bulletproof Diet is not for the faint of heart. It aims to completely eliminate grains and sugars, while a heavy increase of organic options instead.

Often enough, folks will combine The Bulletproof Diet with strong exercise regimens and new sleep habits (the 5am club, for example). This can make your days overwhelmingly different, so be mindful how much change even just one of these changes can make.

Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms are a fantastic place to start with better nutritional health. They’re high in vitamins, minerals, and daily values, which are all detrimental to keeping you on track with your new biohacking techniques.

On top of being extremely healthy, they could also offer functional benefits.

What are Medicinal Mushrooms?

Medicinal mushrooms are a tried and true new addition to the nootropics space. While you may have not heard of them at the grocery store or in your own supplement use recently, they’ve actually been used in Eastern medicine for the past several thousand years. Some medicinal mushrooms you might be familiar with today are:

  • Reishi
  • Lion's mane
  • Chaga
  • Cordyceps
  • Turkey tail

Now, not all of these offer the same benefits. There's actually a whole range of different ways you can try them, and benefits you could get.

What Makes Mushrooms Effective Daily Dietary Supplements?

Beyond that nutritional value we talk about with vitamins and minerals, medicinal mushrooms each offer their own set of functional support areas. These could include:

  • Better sleep
  • Increase energy
  • Elevated focus
  • Reduced stress
  • Immunity
  • Stronger inflammation support
  • Reduced risk of disease and sickness

Depending on which mushrooms you get started with, these benefit areas can range in impactfulness. The best strategy is to find a way to work them into your routine so you get the sustained benefit of medicinal mushrooms instead of just boosting a day here and there.

Are Medicinal Mushrooms Safe?

Absolutely! Medicinal mushrooms are not hallucinogenic in any capacity. This makes ingesting them and using them regularly safe, especially as a supplement. Now, it used to be a lot harder to find good medicinal mushroom supplements that are quality and make an impact.

Routes to Try Medicinal Mushrooms

Raw Mushrooms

Raw mushrooms can be a strong place to get started with mushroom-powered wellness. They can be worked into a wide variety of recipes, and even have their own dedicated forums for creating immunity-building, habit-sustaining recipes you can try today.

The trouble with getting raw mushrooms is the amount of time you’re going to spend in prep-work mode. These can easily add 15 minutes a day to your routine even without meal prepping or anything along those lines. Additionally, they're easily the most expensive option. That's why so many folks have started to move over to supplements for medicinal mushroom support with their biohacking strategies.

Mushroom Powders

Mushroom powders are a strong way to go as an alternative to raw mushrooms. Since they’re in such compounded quantities, you can get the exact mg-count you're looking for with ease, and have almost zero prep time.

Unfortunately, mushroom powder can get messy at times, and also can have undesirable additives. If you're going to get caffeine and sugar in your mushroom powder, why not just stick with a soul-cleansing coffee instead? This is where mushroom gummies can make a huge difference.

Mushroom Gummies

Overall, mushroom gummies are the perfect middle ground to get started with. They offer an expedited and delicious route to enjoy mushrooms without adding a ton of prep time into your day, additives you don't need, or breaking the bank with expensive prices. 

On top of being affordable and delicious, there's a whole lot to love about mushroom gummies.
