As Director of Human Optimization at Onnit and host of the Human Optimization Hour Podcast, Kyle Kingsbury is a living example of the optimized human. He is an autodidact of exceptional caliber, taking in as much information as possible to apply and test that knowledge on himself. His desk is a smorgasbord of cutting edge supplements, esoteric equipment, as well as manuals on biohacking and spiritual development. He is also a former UFC fighter with 11 wins under his belt. An all-around wonderful and formidable human being.

As Director of Human Optimization at Onnit and host of the Human Optimization Hour Podcast, Kyle Kingsbury is a living example of the optimized human. He is an autodidact of exceptional caliber, taking in as much information as possible to apply and test that knowledge on himself. His desk is a smorgasbord of cutting edge supplements, esoteric equipment, as well as manuals on biohacking and spiritual development. He is also a former UFC fighter with 11 wins under his belt. An all-around wonderful and formidable human being.

Kyle Kingsbury is the office guinea pig at Onnit and he tries pretty much everything that might optimize the human experience – but, lately, the most important things haven’t been the latest and greatest biohacks. His focus has been on self-management practices that help him manage his mindset and his nerves.

It’s been a constant journey to return to stillness and find peace – a path that all of us could benefit from walking. Our monkey minds freak out because they feel like there’s so much to do and not enough time, but inevitably, things get better. We get wrapped up in what the hurdles are and we forget to appreciate what we learn from overcoming them.

A mindset shift can help kick off the journey: Everything in life is happening for you, not to you. It’s exceedingly simple, but truly believing that will help you develop a greater mastery over life and your experience of it.

A life that doesn’t include the purpose of learning and evolving is just going to be filled with existential suffering – but none of us need to experience that, especially not when there are people like Kyle out there testing next-level human optimization and life mastery techniques then shouting what works from the rooftops.

ORGANIFI. I'm loving Organifi Gold, especially for my night time routine. It has turmeric, ginger, reishi, lemon balm, turkey tail and other rad superfoods, phytonutrients & pain-soothing herbs. My daily routine lately goes like this: in the morning I add it to my nut milk smoothie. At night when I want to chill out, I make a golden latte. I add the power and a healthy fat like ghee, coconut, or grass-fed butter to hot water and voilá! Great warm elixir, really chills you out, gently detoxifies and tastes awesome.

ONDA WELLNESS. If you’re a discerning health enthusiast like myself, you’ve probably sat and scratched your head at the health food store trying to figure out which CBD product you should buy. They all make big claims, they all say they’re the best, but what actually works? Well, I just found a brand that I’m super stoked about, and I want to share it with you: ONDA offers a patented and truly full-spectrum line of products that aren’t dependent on the use of alcohol, CO2, or other solvents for extraction – and this is important because when you’re getting the medicine out of the plant, you don’t want to add poisons to it! You can try it for yourself and get 15% off using code LUKE15 at ondawellness.com.

JOOVV. If you’ve been listening for a while or following Luke on social media, you’ve probably seen him raving about red light therapy, or photobiomodulation. There are over 3000 published clinical papers on light therapy – over 200 being double-blind, randomized, and placebo-controlled – making this arguably the most well-researched bio hack in Luke’s arsenal. Some of the benefits include increased skin health, better muscle recovery, better sexual performance, and reduced joint pain and inflammation. So you can see why Luke is so into it... and why all of his friends keep coming over to use his Joovv device!
