IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…you’re going to learn how to work with your own biology, adapt to adversity, and get resilient AF. Doctor, educator and entrepreneur Dr. Molly Maloof joins the show in person in Austin, Texas, to talk about her debut book, “The Spark Factor: The Secret to Supercharging Energy, Becoming Resilient, and Feeling Better Than Ever.”

For women biohackers, it’s all about energy—and hormones.

“Cycles are exactly why the way guys biohack doesn’t always work for us [women]; we have hormonal and physiological differences, and importantly, different biological imperatives, from an evolutionary standpoint,” she says in her new book.

She last appeared on episode #706 and talked about how blood sugar powers your energy. This time, she explains why mitochondrial dysfunction is at the root of the collective human energy crisis and what you can do about it. Dr. Molly says four culprits reduce your energy capacity: inactivity, overeating and poor nutrition, too much stress and social disconnection.

"Spark Factor" outlines clear and actionable steps for women on how to make, charge, use, tune, and plug in your own batteries. New to biohacking? Start where you are. More advanced biohacker? You’ll learn tips and tweaks to get you to another level. Molly offers low-tech and tech-free guidance, too. It’s up to you where to start and how far you want to take it.

Her unique view of human performance incorporates technology and psychedelics. In this broad conversation, she covers sex and relationships, too.
