Whether you’re looking for a gift for someone or just trying to get yourself into shape, it can be difficult to find the motivation you need to get going.
One area where people run into a lot of trouble is losing creative ideas and incentive. And the BioHack Box enters…
After all, if you’re just chugging down chicken breast, brown rice and broccoli for every meal of the day, you aren’t going to be enjoying the time you spend trying to get fit and healthy.
That’s where BioHack Box can help you out. We stumbled across it online when we were searching for creative and unique ways to get into shape and enjoy getting healthy.
How BioHack Box Works?
Here’s how it works: Every month, based on your own personal profile, Quarterly.co will send a box full of items somehow related to science, lifestyle and home.
Then there will be a list that describes what each individual item is, what it does, and how you should use it.
And to make things even more interesting, you get a new box every three months. One thing that really stuck out to us was the fact that each item is handpicked by a curator with the company.
So instead of paying for (and them sending) a bunch of useless junk, they take the time to pick each item based on your personal preferences.
It goes without saying – we had to try a box for ourselves. Here’s what we found in our box and what we had to say about each product.
What’s In The BioHack Box?
The first item we pulled out of our box was MCT Oil Powder. It was a decent size sample, and it says that it’s used for quick energy and can even be used for baking.
It promises a creamy shake without any maltodextrin. MCT, or Medium Chain Triglyceride, and the oil form of it (plus grass fed butter) is the formula behind Bulletproof coffee. This has been a hot spot in the fitness community for a while, as this certain kind of coffee boosts your brainpower and supports a healthy easy diet.
And here it is in powder form! That means it can be added to a smoothie or even in something you bake. Obviously, it’s a lot less messy and easier to handle than the oil.
Plus, the powder is a lot easier on your stomach than the oil is, since it has been linked to pretty upset stomachs.
When we added it to our smoothies, we found we also had an increase in energy and it helped us stay focused for longer. Mark this item as an A+.
The next item we pulled out was drinkwel multivitamin. The advertising on the package says: the multivitamin for people who drink.
Our first thought: Drink what?
Then we realized it was referring to alcohol. Nothing like honest and realism!
This unique multivitamin is strictly for healthy individuals who enjoy a drink every now and then. It says it is supposed to help support healthy liver function, give your body back the nutrients it needs and also help process toxins that come from alcohol.
An excuse to drink for a night?
Count us in! After having a few extra drinks, we expected to feel pretty terrible the next day. However, before we went to sleep, we drank the drinkwel multivitamin.
The results were pretty stunning. Instead of feeling crampy and tired, having a headache, or feeling like you’re going to vomit, you feel pretty normal. Aside from feeling dehydrated, it is just another day.
This is the perfect solution after a night out of drinking. You won’t have to miss your workout regimen the next day or give in to hangover-induced carbs.
What Else Is In The BioHack Box?
The third item we pulled out of the bag was called Sleepphones. Basically, it was a headband like material that had speakers inside of it. It’s a very soft material with the headphones right in the middle of them. You just plug it into your phone, put on the headband and off to sleep you go.
No more dealing with uncomfortable ear buds sticking out of your ear when you are trying to get to sleep. The sound quality on these were pretty amazing! So far, we love all three products.
Next, we pulled out these colorful tubes that said “trubrain” on them. We admit, we were a little hesitant to try something that would mess with our brains. But within 30 minutes of consuming them, we found we both had a huge surge in energy, which must be from the caffeine.
We also found overall better alertness and creativity, as well as the ability to focus easier.
Added bonus: All the ingredients in them are completely natural. And while there is a small bitter taste leftover, they actually taste pretty good. It was like giving your brain a boost. We’re ordering more of these ASAP.
Our next item on the list was called “Clean Bottle” and we have to say, this might be our favorite. You know what a pain it is to clean a bottle, as you have to try and get through the tiny hole. Well this bottle has a removable bottom, so you can clean it a lot easier. No more gross mold or mildew building up inside!
The second to last item in our box was called fuelforfire. When we took a look at the ingredients list, we were surprised to see that they were made of real fruit and they were packed with over 10 grams of whey protein. They don’t have any artificial ingredients, including sugar, and are actually gluten-free.
It was the perfect thing to throw in a bag and go.
And lastly, our final item was called simple squares. Advertised as an organic nutrition bar, the ingredients boasted no artificial items whatsoever, as well as gluten. It’s yet another great snack to grab when you’re on the go, and it was delicious. The flavor we got was chocolate and coconut. Let’s just say we wanted more!
When it comes to the BioBack Box, we’re big fans. It was awesome to see what someone else picks out for you, and to get a huge variety of items to try all at once.
