How to Know if You’re Stressed

April 8, 2022

Jason Moore is the founder of Elite HRV and Spren, companies offering deep insight into health, stress, and recovery using the technology of heart rate variability (HRV) and other biometrics. For the last decade, his products have focused on helping consumers measure physiological adaptation by essentially providing a snapshot of the autonomic nervous system, accessible within a simple phone app. There’s no doubt his work has contributed to the enormous popularity of HRV as one of the most comprehensive noninvasive biomarkers available.

On this podcast, Jason discusses the latest advances in HRV technology and the many ways it is being used to assess and improve outcomes. He talks about the current applications of this metric, including endurance and strength training, and - more recently - cognitive performance. He also offers us a glimpse into the latest developments and devices now making it easier than ever to measure the status of your nervous system.
