They debunk myths about drinking water and electrolytes, emphasize the importance of sleep for metabolic health, and discuss the impact of nutrition on mental health.

Lauren and Renee grew up in a health-driven family that prioritized the fundamentals of wellness and self-care (don’t worry, there was lots of mac n’ cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!). Their father, Gene Sambataro, The Original Biohacker and pioneer of Holistic Dentistry, taught them the importance of individualization, curiosity, and experimentation from a very young age.


Coming together as health entrepreneurs, Renee, a Certified Nutritional Consultant and Holistic Lifestyle Coach with a Master’s degree in Nutrition, and Lauren, a Broadway performer,  CHEK Licensed Practitioner, and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, feel a strong passion and drive to not only share each of their journeys towards wellness but their strategy and motivation to discover our unique bodies through the world of biohacking and Nof1 experimentation.


Their podcast, the Biohacker Babes, aims to create insight into the body’s natural healing abilities, strengthen your intuition,  and empower you with techniques and modalities to optimize your health and wellness.
