The gut microbiome is getting a ton of attention these days in the medical and scientific communities, but you have bacterial environments on every part of your body, not just in your gut. This means that there’s good bacteria on your skin, doing its job to protect you and your immune system as your body’s first line of defense. Mother Dirt is the first product developed to restore and maintain beneficial microorganisms on your skin for better skin quality and a robust skin microbiome. The Mist contains Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria that convert the ammonia in your sweat into beneficial compounds such as Nitric Oxide and work to calm irritation and decrease body odor. The Shampoo and Cleanser are devoid of the harsh chemicals and additives that are present in most commercial hygiene products. The Mist, Cleanser, and Shampoo make a profound difference in the quality of your skin.

What you can’t see CAN hurt you! Invisible mold is making millions of people sick every day and affecting brain health and function over the long-term. There’s no safe level of mold toxins in your environment, so it’s important to get levels as low as possible. You can’t fix what you don’t know is there! With the Air Oasis Indoor Air Quality Testing Kit, you can test your home or office for mold, yeast, harmful bacteria, and pathogens. Only then can you treat the affected areas accordingly. Using testing kits like this in tandem with preventative measures like Homebiotic and the information in the Moldy Movie can help make your home safe for you and your family.

Keep your eye on the humidity levels inside your home year-round. Monitoring humidity levels is a simple first step for preventing mold growth. The ideal relative humidity for most of the year is about 40-50%, while in the winter months you may want to stay a little lower than 40%. The Acurite humidity monitor gives you both temperature and humidity readings and has both tabletop and magnet fittings so you can place it conveniently anywhere in the house.
Stackable travel containers are the hack you’ve been looking for to transport all the pills, powders and potions you use to function at your highest level while traveling.

Limited Edition Bulletproof-Branded Smart Cup
This custom BPA-free smart cup is made from high-quality stain and odor-resistant materials and was made specifically for Quarterly Box subscribers so it can’t be purchased anywhere else.

This month’s box includes a 16-oz. bottle of Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil – now 100% sourced from coconut oil without any trace of palm oil used at any time during the process, regardless of season or availability. While Bulletproof had always been a part of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, we worked hard to eliminate palm from the product supply chain because of the horrible deforestation practices that are prevalent in the palm oil industry. As far as quality, our products haven’t changed. They’re chemically identical to the old version, and you’ll get the same results. The difference is that now you can use them with a totally clear conscience.
Biohacking for one and all (aka discount codes)
Not every amazing product Dave finds can fit into a box. Plus, one of the big goals with the subscription box was to make biohacking more accessible to everyone. That means huge discounts with companies doing badass things.

Along with the Indoor Air Quality Kits included in the box, Air Oasis also produces the most powerful air purification units on the market. Third-party lab verification confirms that these units eliminate 99% of allergens, odors, germs and mold to improve air quality as well as sanitize surfaces, which is something no other air purifier can claim. This NASA-derived air purification technology creates polarized ions via UV light that neutralizes contaminants and breaks down pollutants, then reverts the ions into harmless water vapor. The units are energy-efficient and maintenance-free since there is no filter to change, and they cover a far larger range than typical ionizers. Hospitals, nurseries, government facilities, casinos, and even sewage treatment plants use this technology to maintain air and surface cleanliness.
Air Oasis generously offered a coupon code off of their Air Purification Technology for the Bulletproof community. Use code “bulletproof” on their site for 20% off anything in your cart. Offer expires 10/01/16.
The Human Charger helps to treat jet lag by shining UV-free, enriched light into your ears. It is the only device that has an EU Medical Device certification for the treatment of jet lag and has been in commercial use for mood disorders since 2010. The Journal of Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance published a peer-reviewed jet lag study featuring the Human Charger, and it has numerous safety certifications to support consistent use. It has a convenient and anonymous travel design since it looks like an iPod, and the device needs only a short 12-minute cycle to achieve the effects. It also has applications beyond jet lag, ranging from altering sleep timing, to improving mood and energy levels.

The EPA regulates roughly 100 harmful contaminants in tap water, but studies show that there are more than 300 total contaminants present, with the majority going unregulated. Reverse Osmosis is the gold standard in water purification technology, but installing these systems requires big changes to your plumbing and lots of cash. AquaTru is the first countertop reverse osmosis unit that does not require complex and costly installation. It uses a 4-stage water purification process that meets the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) standards for 128 chemicals and gasses. For comparison, faucet filters meet 58 standards, and pitcher filters only meet 13. As a bonus, filtering your tap water at home can help to save the planet and reduce the number of plastic bottles from bottled water that end up in landfills, which currently sits at a dreadful 50 billion per year.
AquaTru also stepped up with an offer for Bulletproof readers. Visit their site and enter code “100” in the discount code field to save $100 off one of their countertop reverse osmosis filters.
We’d love to hear your feedback on how you like the box and how we can continue to improve the quality and value.
“Dave Asprey’s boxes are always filled with awesome goodies for those who are looking to bio-hack their life. I’m not even sure how he’s able to put all of the stuff in there for the price you get it at. I’ve liked some of his boxes so much that I’ve bought more to send to my friends as gifts.” – Cristina L.
