How managing your deuterium levels can optimize performance and longevity.

So many of you are probably asking yourself, what the hell is deuterium? Deuterium is an isotope of hydrogen. This form of hydrogen is containing one neutron and one proton. Compared to a normal hydrogen atom which only contains one proton, and this makes deuterium heavier. Deuterium is used in some nuclear applications as a moderator in heavy water reactors. In the process of making heavy water you also get deuterium depleted water (DDW) as a by-product.

Deuterium and energy production in the body

Most of the research on deuterium and the effects on the body originates from eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. This research began as a search for the reason for why some regions in Siberia had a higher number of centenarians. Their investigations led to examine the water the people were drinking. The glacial melt water showed to have 15-20% lower amounts of deuterium compared to “normal water “. In 1966 the Russian scientist published  Biological Role of Heavy Water in Living Organisms and in the book they discussed the potential benefits of DDW. Their research showed that mice fed water with higher concentrations of deuterium got smaller offspring and lost their reproductive capacity. In another experiment mice that was fed glacial melt water had the adverse effect. This resulted in faster growth and higher sexual function compared to the high deuterium group.

During this time, it was also found that our mitochondria has nanomotors than spins about 9000 rpm(faster than many sports cars). The mitochondria are responsible for all of our energy production. The energy produced in the body is called ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) and this nanomotor has a crucial role in the generation of ATP. This motor is not really a motor but rather an enzyme acting as a motor called ATP-synthase.

This “nano motors “shuffles hydrogen ions through the proton channel and this generates ATP se fig 1.

It is also here in this nano motor that deuterium becomes a problem. In a simple way we could say that deuterium due to its heaviness get stuck in the nano motor and eventually can destroy them. This inhibition of the nano motors function could lead to less energy being produced and mitochondrial dysfunction. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to over 100 different diseases.

For me it’s quite obvious that lower energy production in the body leads to less energy for all processes and this could lead to problems like fatigue and eventually disease.   

How to optimize your lifestyle to lower deuterium.

    Luckily there are multiple of hacks and lifestyle changes that you can apply to lower your deuterium levels. The body does by itself detoxify deuterium and it also makes its own DDW in the cells so called “metabolic water”. There are also different deuterium levels in foods so by eating low deuterium foods you can manage your levels quite good. Generally, we could say that all forms of mitochondrial improvement will mitigate the problems derived from high deuterium levels.

  • Drinking deuterium depleted water. This water is one of the fastest ways to aid the body in getting rid of excess deuterium. This water is quite expensive because of the high cost of production. The good part is that you only need to drink it 1-3 months per year. I use Preventa which is a Hungarian company that has a food grade DDW facility. I get mine from this shop
  • Make your own metabolic water by fasting or dry fasting. Fasting or dry fasting will break down fats in the body. In the process of breaking down fats you also free stored water from your fat cells. This metabolic water is naturally low in deuterium.
  • Do a ketogenic or a carnivore diet. Ketogenic or carnivore diets are low in carbohydrates. Deuterium are usually stored in the sugary parts of the food. By eliminating carbohydrates, you will get less deuterium in to the system. Also, by eating high fat foods you also teach your body to become efficient in oxidizing fats which will help to ramp up the production of metabolic water.
  • Get out in the sun or use red light therapy. We know that red light or infra-red light can help with ATP production. Also, red light can change the viscosity of the water in the cells and by this making the energy production less friction less. Get our red-light panel here.
  • Avoid GMO foods and meat that has been fed grains. GMO foods are modified to grow faster and usually contains higher amounts of deuterium.
  • Drink hydrogen water the hydrogen gas will push out the deuterium
  • Use oxygen or ozone therapies to oxygenate the body. Oxygen binds deuterium and can help with lowering your total deuterium load
  • Cold therapy can improve mitochondrial function and increase your fat burning or conversion of white fat into brown fat.
  • Sleep well, the body detoxifies deuterium during sleep

How to make your bedroom in to a perfect sleep sanctuary!(Hur man gör sitt sovrum till den ultimata sömnfristaden !)

We almost spend a third of our lives in bed or at least we should. Getting a good night sleep is one of the most important things in life. Good sleep doesn’t only make you perform better during the day but its also makes you healthier, leaner and if you have continuous good sleep it could actually increase your life span. So sleep is usually done in the same room every night this gives you big room to optimize this environment I will down below show my favorite bedroom hacks.

1. Get an air freshener or find plants that could improve the air quality of your bed room this of course becomes extra important if you live in a city like I do.This is the one that i prefer Air Oasis 1000G3 Filterless UV & Cold Plasma Ionization Purifier Reduces Allergens, Mold, Odors, Germs, Smoke

2. Pitch black room is the way to go. Even a small amount of light from electrical equipment or from street lights have been shown to disturb your sleep.

3. Sound is also an important factor try to use ear plugs if you can if not you could use a white noise generator which effectively will cancel out most of other noises

4. Remove as much of electrical equipment as possible from your sleeping area. Emf:s from your phone or dirty electricity from electronic devices are actually shown to be able to affect your sleep in a bad way.

5. I shut of my Wi-Fi at night and keep my cell phone in another room. If you use your cell phone as an alarm clock, buy a real old school alarm clock.I also use this Faraday cage for my router WiFi Router Guard – Blocks EMF Exposure

6. Find a real good bed made in natural materials and try to see that your bed is not treated with flame retardants. Also buy high quality sheets I use sheets of bamboo fiber or organic cotton.

7. Grounded sleep. Sleeping on grounded sheets will give you constant access to free electrons from the earth, the free electrons act as antioxidants and can help you lower inflammation and mitigate some of the risks from emf.This sheets i recommend but i dont recommend to connect them to electrical ground , i use water pipes as grounding point.

8. If you have a TV in the bed room remove it. Watching TV and sleeping is not a good combo. The light from the screen and the program on it will keep your brain active when you should be focusing on winding down.

9. Temperature is also an important factor. By keeping your bed room slightly colder than the rest. The body’s coldest temperature is achieved during sleep if the room is to hot this will be disturbed and sleep quality will go down.If you suffer from high temperature in your bed room check this out ChiliPad Cube 2.0 – Single and Dual Zones – Cooling and Heating Mattress Pad – Individual Temperature Control, Great Sleep Enhancement, Wireless Remote Integration (Single (75″ L x 30″ W))

10. Use of essential oils, I regularly use lavender oil which has been shown to have a calming effect on the mind. Go for an organic brand put drops on pillow or use some type of diffuser for essential oils.i use this diffuser Dr. Mercola Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser 120V

Hur man gör sitt sovrum till en perfekt sömnfristad!

Vi spenderar nästan en tredjedel av våra liv i sängen eller åtminstone så borde vi det. Att få en god natts sömn är en av de viktigaste sakerna i livet. Bra sömn gör inte bara dig bättre under dagen men det gör dig också friskare, smalare och om du har kontinuerlig god sömn kan det öka din livslängd. Så sömn görs vanligtvis i samma rum varje kväll, vilket ger dig stort utrymme för att optimera denna miljö. Jag kommer nedanför att visa mina bästa sovrums hacks.

  1. Skaffa en luftrenare eller hitta växter som kan förbättra luftkvaliteten på ditt sovrum det här blir givetvis extra viktigt om du bor i en stad som jag gör.Detta är den bästa jag vet Air Oasis 1000G3 Filterless UV & Cold Plasma Ionization Purifier Reduces Allergens, Mold, Odors, Germs, Smoke
  2. Ett kolsvart rum är målet, även en liten mängd ljus från elektrisk utrustning eller från gatubelysning har visat sig störa din sömn
  3. Ljud är också en viktig faktor att försöka använda öronproppar om du kan om du inte kan använda en vit brusgenerator som effektivt kommer att hjälpa till att dämpa de flesta oönskade ljuden.
  4. Ta bort så mycket elektriska prylar som möjligt från ditt sovrum. Elektromagnetisk högfrekvent strålning (EMF)från din telefon eller smutsig el från elektroniska enheter visas faktiskt för att kunna påverka din sömn på ett dåligt sätt.
  5. Jag stänger av min Wi-Fi på natten och förvarar min mobiltelefon i ett annat rum under natten. Om du använder din mobiltelefon som väckarklocka, köp en riktig gammal väckarklocka av den gamla skolan.Jag använder även en en farraday bur runt min router för att sänka den farliga strålningen.WiFi Router Guard – Blocks EMF Exposure
  6. Hitta en riktigt bra säng gjord i naturmaterial och försök att se till att din säng inte behandlas med flamskyddsmedel. Köp även högkvalitativa lakan, jag använder lakan av bambufiber eller ekologisk bomull.
  7. Jordad sömn. Sova på jordade lakan ger dig kontinuerlig tillgång till fria elektroner från jorden, de fria elektronerna fungerar som antioxidanter och kan hjälpa dig att sänka inflammation och kan även mildra några av riskerna från EMF.Men se till at att jorda via vatten rör eller direkt jord inte via elsystemet.Earthing Sheet Fitted Twin Size with Grounding Connection Cord, 400TC Conductive Mat with Pure Silver Thread for Better Sleep, Natural Wellness and Healthy Earth Energy, Natural Beige
  8. Om du har en tv i sovrummet ta bort den. Titta på TV och sova är inte en bra kombination. Ljuset från skärmen och programmet på det kommer att hålla din hjärna aktiv när du ska fokusera på nedvarvning.
  9. Temperaturen är också en viktig faktor. Genom att hålla ditt sovrum lite kallare än resten av din bostad så kommer antagligen du sova bättre. Kroppens kallaste temperatur uppnås under sömnen om rummet är varmt det kommer att störas och sömnkvaliteten kommer att gå ner. Om du har det för varmt i sovrummet så rekomenderar jag att du kollar på ChiliPad Cube 2.0 – Single and Dual Zones – Cooling and Heating Mattress Pad – Individual Temperature Control, Great Sleep Enhancement, Wireless Remote Integration (Single (75″ L x 30″ W))
  10. Användning av eteriska oljor, jag använder regelbundet lavendelolja som har visat sig ha en lugnande effekt på sinnet. Hitta ett ekologiskt märke och använd genom att droppa på kudden eller använd någon typ av diffuser för eteriska oljor.Jag använder denna Dr. Mercola Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser 120V

Osteostrong the ultimate hack for your bones!

In Sweden and the Scandinavian countries osteoporosis is a very common issue. In fact, Sweden has the highest numbers of bone fractures caused by osteoporosis in the world (Bjärenäs, 2018). In Sweden the milk lobby has for many years promoted the slogan “milk gives stronger bones”. However, this is an oversimplified version of the truth and the reasons for the high numbers of osteoporosis are many. Calcium has an important role in bone health, but Calcium alone doesn’t build strong bones. The lack of sunlight makes vitamin D deficiency a common problem in Sweden. Vitamin D which really is not a vitamin, but a steroidal hormone plays a crucial role in in intestinal calcium absorption. If there is a deficiency of vitamin D in the bloodstream the uptake of calcium is reduced, and the body starts taking calcium from the skeletal tissue.

Honest review of the new OURA ring


In the start of my biohacker journey sleep was a big priority and after doing a lot of work with improving my sleeping area and trying various hacks to sleep better i decided to start tracking my sleep to understand what was going on during the night. I started out with the regular sleep apps for smart phones but didn’t find them reliable. Then I started hearing about the OURA ring from a lot of people in the biohacker community. After a couple of months, I decided to get one. I have used the OURA ring and tracked my sleep for approximately 10 months and I really love it. When they launched their new ring with a good pre-order deal I decided to buy it.
