Vitamins and minerals from real food sources, paired with time-tested superfood ingredients.
Easily Absorbed Magnesium
Did you know every single cell of the body needs magnesium to function? It’s known to promote calmness, but it’s even required for proper calcium absorption — which means it contributes to strong bones, teeth, even healthy cholesterol levels. And yet, approximately 60% of Americans don’t get enough through diet alone. Our magnesium supplement is in a form that makes it easier for your body to absorb and use.
This blend incorporates some of history’s most respected superfoods. Organic fermented rhodiola root, turmeric root, nettle root and cinnamon root extracts are typically more concentrated than just the plants themselves, and powerful mushrooms like lion’s mane can help your body stay in balance.
Wild Hake Roe & Beef Liver
An ancient nutritional powerhouse, liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. It can help support healthy detoxification in the body, and it’s full of vitamin A, B-vitamins, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium and more. Roe, or fish eggs, are packed with protein and essential fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins — there are often more omega 3s in the roe than the fish itself. Our wild hake roe is sourced in New Zealand.

What is TCM?
The Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) is a system of wellness that dates back more than 2,000 years and is still practiced today. It works on the belief that Qi (which loosely translates to “vital energy” and is pronounced “chee”) is essential for overall health. TCM principles adhere to the idea that proper Qi is needed to keep all systems in balance. This ties into the concept of yin and yang, defined as opposing but complementary energies. According to TCM, like Qi, yin and yang negatively affect your health when they’re out of balance. That being said, a primary goal of TCM involves balancing their equalizing relationship. One of the ways to do that involves using specific superfoods and herbs. TCM superfoods and superherbs aim to support the overall health of the systems of the body. TCM aims to create balance in the body as a whole to promote wellness and Qi. When the yin and yang aspects of Qi are harmonized and balanced out, a person typically experiences wellbeing.
How is TCM different than Ayurveda?
Both TCM and Ayurveda approach the body in a balancing way. They both address energy flow, circulation and balance in the body. For instance, that energy is referred to as Qi in TCM and prana in Ayurveda.
While there is overlap in some of the botanicals used in both TCM and Ayurveda, each tradition also utilizes specific plants and foods. Ayurveda was born out of India, so it often recommends traditional herbs and foods widely available in that region. TCM often focuses on botanicals and fungi more readily available in China. While TCM may utilize more animal products, Ayurveda does tend to recommend more dairy, like ghee, compared to TCM.
In essence, TCM and Ayurveda are different ways to approach wellness and balance from different regions of the world.

Is supplementation really necessary?
For many Americans the diet consumed isn’t nutritionally adequate. In fact, approximately two-thirds of the standard U.S. diet is made up of unhealthy fats and refined sugars with low or no nutrient density — providing calories but not the amounts of vitamins and minerals needed, including vitamins A, B Complex, C, D, E and the minerals calcium, magnesium and zinc. More specifically, typical diets contain less than 80% of the RDA for calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and manganese—and the people who are most at risk for coming up short on those nutrients are adult women and teenage girls. Here’s the truth: If two-thirds of the standard U.S. diets are coming up short on certain nutrients, then the remaining one-third of the average diet may not be so great, either, and cannot possibly fully meet a person’s nutrient needs. One great way to get more vitamins and minerals into your diet is to include nutrient-dense, real foods. Unlike our Standard American Diet, nutrient-dense foods can deliver a vitamin-packed and mineral-packed wallop. In addition to a nutrient-dense diet, some opt to take a multivitamin to help cover their bases.
Why is magnesium so important?
Magnesium is a mainstay for optimal health. In fact, generally speaking, magnesium is absolutely critical because it’s needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.
Why aren’t your products labeled as being “dairy-free” or “nut free”?
Our products do not contain dairy, grains, nuts or soy; however, they are manufactured in facilities that may carry these allergens. This being said, all of our manufacturing partners are required to have and follow a thorough Allergen Program. The Allergen Program is to prevent the cross contamination of raw materials and processing of finished goods, where allergens may be present. Simply put, when it comes to our products and our suppliers, we follow industry best practices for full transparency and accuracy concerning our products. Therefore, where applicable for our products, we use the wording “made without dairy” and “made without nuts.”
