How To Conduct An Effective Self-Experiment

When you get started with your self-experiment, follow these basic steps:

  1. Ask a question
  2. Do a literature review
  3. Define your hypothesis
  4. Determine your study design
  5. Observe
  6. Confirm and replicate
  7. Conclude


Have you ever done a self-experiment yourself? Maybe nice to share this in #lifestyle-and-supplement-regimens :smiley:

So far my “longevity” stack contains magnesium citrate, taurine, menaquinone-7, potassium gluconate, some probiotic (including LKM-512), oxerutins, lots of vegetables, Indian spices, nuts, lentils, avocado, olive oil, lithium-rich and silicon-rich mineral water.

Other factors affecting the healthspan we will discuss later:

  • food
  • exposure to outdoor solar radiation
  • oral hygiene
  • physical activity
  • quality of a night’s sleep
  • outdoor and indoor air pollution level, detoxification
  • supportive local social environment
  • mood
