Biohacking the Flow State by Boosting Anandamide

Steve Glaveski has put out a quality post looking closely what increases anandamide, also known as ‘the bliss molecule’.  This is what is credited with runner’s high and has the potential to increase productivity by up to 500%.

So how do we increase anandamide?

  1. Exercise: Aside from running, other forms of moderate to high intensity exercise can trigger anandamide production. A Georgia Tech study found that runners and cyclists had 80% more anandamide in their bloodstream after a 40 minute session.
  2. Meditate: Anandamide is also produced during meditation which, once stigmatised, has gone mainstream thanks to apps such as Headspace and Calm which boasts millions of users.
  3. Eat Chocolate: Chocolate contains anandamide which gives you a temporary feeling of happiness after eating it, perhaps also partly responsible for why so many crave chocolate so much!
  4. Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation: The University of Sydney conducted a study using the ‘9 dot problem’. They ran an experiment with a control group and not one person successfully solved the problem. They ran it again after the control group received 10 minutes of safe brain stimulation known as transcranial direct current stimulation.
