I am a better living through science kind of girl - by Jess Curl
Sleep trackers, deprivation tanks, nootropics, infrared sauna’s, ice bath’s, the list goes on of things I will do and try on myself (and suggest to others) if I find it’s helpful or makes me feel strong, vibrant and healthy.

How the "Widow Maker" Taught a PT-Turned-Hair-Entrepreneur To Get A Hold On Life - by Kent Mulligan
My name is Kent Mulligan, I'm 45 years old, and I'm the founder of Melbourne-based men's hair product company Modern Pirate. My mornings routines weren’t always this regimented, but the ‘widow maker’ almost got me a few years ago.

Chaga Mushroom Benefits for the Skin
We have been previously discussing all the amazing properties of Chaga Mushroom, but did you know that Chaga Mushroom is also used in skincare? The Chaga mushroom offers such amazing skin support & can be extremely beneficial for anyone suffering from skin conditions such as acne, allergic reactions, bug bites, rashes, dermatitis, psoriasis, itching, rosacea, & eczema!
Coined in 1947, the term adaptogen refers to substances that theoretically “adapt” to what your body needs and help protect against various stressors. ¹ Adaptogens were initially defined as substances that enhance the “state of non-specific resistance” in stress, a physiological condition that is linked with various disorders of the neuroendocrine-immune system. Studies on animals and isolated neuronal cells have revealed that adaptogens exhibit neuroprotective, anti-fatigue, antidepressive, anxiolytic, nootropic and CNS stimulating activity. In addition, several clinical trials demonstrate that adaptogens exert an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental work capacity against a background of stress and fatigue, particularly in tolerance to mental exhaustion and enhanced attention.
Meet the face behind the brand: SIIM
It all started when Siim was 12 years old. Being a huge fan of the nature, it was probably meant to be that his family lived next to a legendary beekeeper who taught Siim all the tricks of the trade. Not long after, Siim had his first beehives that kept him busy for a few years. After graduating from high school, Siim started to locally buy forest berries and mushrooms and that evolved into an export business which supplied berries to pharmacology and food businesses in South-Korea, Japan and China.
Did you know that Vitamin C only stays in system for 24 hours?
Vitamin C is water soluble so it’s almost impossible to overload your system. If you do happen to consume too much of the vitamin at once, you will just excrete it by urination. This also means that you can’t take this vitamin once a week and expect for it to have a residual effect. You have to take it every day to see effects. The water-soluble vitamin C is probably the most well-known vitamin. Even before its discovery in 1932, physicians recognized that there must be a compound in citrus fruits preventing scurvy, a disease that killed as many as two million sailors between 1500 and 1800. ²
Story of Estonian Chaga
Estonia is a small country of 4.5 million hectares, 1.3 million of which are organic forests. That’s where chaga mushrooms and Scots pine buds are hand-picked for our elixir. Tuhalaane farm, owned by Arvi Salujärv, is one of the oldest homesteads working with us. When harvesting chaga, Arvi only picks mushrooms that are at least five years old. Our picking areas in Viljandi, Põlva, Valga, and Võru counties are monitored by the Estonian Agricultural Registers and Information Board. But what happens when we run out of chaga mushrooms?
Did someone say beach?
Immuno Elixir is a perfect companion for Australian summer and great to be consumed over holiday season. Why would you wait until colder weather and flu-season to start boosting your immune system? We at Chaga Health Australia think it is perfectly normal to take bottle of Immuno Elixir with you where ever you may go. Beach, for example. Inside the ice-filled esky, of course!
Can Chaga help with sports performance and recovery?
