Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, widely recognized for its antioxidant properties and its roles in many critical processes and pathways.

Zinc

Zinc is an essential nutrient that influences growth and development and plays critical roles in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division.

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)

BDNF is a growth factor known for its influence on neuronal health and for its role in mediating the beneficial cognitive effects associated with exercise.

Sauna

Sauna use exposes the body to extreme heat and, in turn, induces protective responses that improve health and may increase healthspan.

Hydrolyzed Collagen

Hydrolyzed collagen is a mixture of smaller peptides derived from the protein collagen that may improve skin aging, decrease arthritis induced pain, increase bone mineral density, and decrease hypertension.

Depression

Depression – a mood disorder that affects 322 million people worldwide – is characterized by profound sadness, anxiety, and physical complaints.
