Dave Asprey on How to Get the Perfect Sleep, Have More Energy, and Increase Brain Power


It’s not every day that you meet someone who spends over $1MM to optimize their body and mind.

In fact, most of us have been following the same health and nutritional practices that have been brought down to us from our family.

Today’s guest, Dave Asprey, is about to rock our worlds. Dave is the founder and CEO of Bulletproof.com, and the New York Times Bestselling Author of The Bulletproof Diet.

He works with some of the top researchers and doctors to learn how one can get the best sleep, have more natural energy, and increase their brain function.

A lot of what Dave shares may be counterintuitive to what you’ve heard growing up, including his belief about why we need less sleep than we think, and the idea of putting butter in your coffee!

Get ready for an intense 60-minute learning session, and make sure you stay until the end to hear Dave’s challenge to you.
