Biohacking Superhuman Performance

Jul 6, 2021

Are you looking to achieve metabolic flexibility? This is the episode for you then!


In this week’s episode, Nathalie talks to Daniel Tal about the Lumen device. Lumen measures metabolism in a single breath, in less than a minute, instead of an hour-long test in a lab. The technology uses CO2 from the breath to calculate whether the user is burning fats, carbs or some combination of the two – it then interfaces with an app to provide guidance and feedback with the goal of supporting users in developing “metabolic flexibility”. This is the perfect episode for those who are health focused, but don’t want to do a hardcore diet like Keto.


Meet This Week's Guest

Daniel Tal! Daniel is a seasoned entrepreneur, co-founder, and CEO of Lumen, a company developing consumer nutrition management platform, based on a small device that measures metabolism in a single breath and provides personalized food, lifestyle, and health recommendations.


Episode Sponsor:  Oxford Healthspan manufactures the top Spermidine Supplement on the market – Primeadine.  Primeadine is a food-based supplement with an extremely high safety profile that halts 6 of the 9 hallmarks of aging.  It is the purest in the market, with zero fillers and a formulation that also supports the endogenous production of spermidine through a prebiotic. The visible results that I have experienced and observed in my clients include – better deep sleep, better hair, skin and nails – but all these pale in comparison to the benefits you don’t see – the DNA protection, autophagy upregulation, improved cellular communication and much much more.  To try Primeadine for yourself go to and use promo code BIONAT15 to save 15% off your purchase.
