There is one package specifically designed for men, and one for women. This is by far the most comprehensive blood testing package that exists, and Ben created it for the health enthusiast, biohacker and anti-aging individual who wants access to the same type of executive health panel and screening that would normally cost tens of thousands of dollars at a longevity institute. Virtually all hormones and all biomarkers are covered in this panel.

Top 5 Natural Arthritis Cures
Summer says: She has arthritis up and down her entire spine. Her doctor thinks it is because of stress. She is 33 and is using a lot of de-stressing techniques that you have discussed on the show and she follows a mostly paleo diet. She heard that Dave Asprey had cured himself of arthritis but couldn't find out how. What would you do if you had arthritis?
Top 5 MMA Biohacks
Troy says: He is curious about some under the radar performance enhancers. He was reading about an MMA fighter who is using urine therapy to enhance his performance. He also read that the NFL was using Viagra for performance. He'd like to know more about those and any other unconventional enhancers you know of.
J-Shape vs. S-shape Spine
Jon says (sounds like he is running while asking the q): He is interested in the new research showing that spine shapes were J-shaped in the past and are now S-shaped which has lead to back pain. What are you thoughts on this? Do think this is true? And if so, how would you go about getting a J-shaped spine?
Far Infrared vs. Near Infrared Saunas
Barbara says: She is wondering is you can make a comment on Far infrared saunas vs. Near infrared saunas. What are the benefits and differences. Also can you recommend any portable saunas?
How To Gain Muscle Without Weightlifting
Jason says: He came down with prostatitis from lifting heavy weights. How can he best recover from that? He is not allowed to lift any weights, or avoid anything that would induce high abdominal pressure, so how can he maintain muscle mass while he can't lift weights?
