Maximilian’s newest project is the „Flowgrade Show“, a promising biohacking podcast featuring guests such as Dave Asprey, Kelly Starrett, Steven Kotler, Brandon Routh, Teemu Arina, Nico Richter, and many other experts in their respective fields. With the development of the brand Flowgrade, Max and his team are working to offer high-quality nutritional products to complement the lab services offered through Biotrakr. In addition, Max is a frequent speaker at health events and conferences on Biohacking, Self-Optimization and Self-Quantification in Germany and Europe.
