Hectic work schedules, poor diet, and stress can leave you feeling washed-out, old, and sick. In 2014, two young men had had enough of this, and they decided to do something about it. Julze Serendipity and Daniel Whitechurch found better health and well-being in the use of ancient herbal remedies, mushrooms, and other superfoods. They didn't stop there. They decided to share their knowledge with the rest of the world, founding Teelixir, a company that helps people rediscover and maintain good health through herbal remedies and medicinal mushrooms.
Traditional Chinese communities brewed herbs for hours to make a tea that would rejuvenate the drinker by increasing energy, promoting balance, well-being, and overall health. Like a life-giving elixir. Thus tea and elixir combined together became Teelixir.
Teelixir manufactures supplements using well-known superfoods such as organically-grown mushrooms and herbs. They formulate them as powders that can be taken in the form of teas, mixed into smoothies, and incorporated in soups and other food recipes.
Superfood is a term used to describe foods that are high in nutritional benefits but low in calories. They are abundant in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all of which the body needs to prevent and fight disease. Teelixirproduces three main types of superfood supplements:
Medicinal mushrooms are mushrooms that have been used for centuries in oriental cultures for their numerous health benefits. They contain substances like beta-glucans, terpenoids, and alkaloids which boost the body's resistance to tumors and other diseases and disorders. They are often taken in powder form and include:
These consist of different mushroom and adaptogenic extracts blended together to produce a powerful, immune-boosting supplement. They include:
Adaptogens are non-poisonous plants that have been used for years in Asia for their healing and stress-relieving properties. They can be incorporated in meals or brewed and drank as a tea. Top Teelixir adaptogens include:
Teelixir uses safe, high-grade ingredients for all their products. They are grown, harvested, and processed using methods that retain their natural integrity as much as possible. Here are some things that set Teelixir supplements above others.
Mushrooms can grow in the wild or they can be grown in the lab. Lab-grown mushrooms are first grown from mycelium in a petri dish containing nutrients. The mycelium is then transferred to grains so it can increase in quantity and produce mushrooms. Mushrooms grown in this way tend to have high levels of starch and low levels of beta-glucans and terpenoids, which are what makes mushrooms a superfood.
All ingredients used in Teelixir products are sourced directly from their natural habitat away from the polluting influence of cities and human settlements. Teelixir mushroom products use wild-grown mushrooms, which are rich in health-boosting natural beta-glucans and terpenoids. They are, in short, the real deal. Cultivated herbs are only germinated from seed and then transferred to a natural environment so they can grow without any human interference.
Growing raw materials in the wild give them room to acquire nutrients they would not get if they were farm-cultivated. They, therefore, have a chemical profile that is as close as possible to the wild-grown product.
Teelixir uses only clean, natural water from the mountain range habitat where the raw materials grow to extract some ingredients, while others are obtained through dual-extraction.
This is where hot water is used to extract the beta-glucans, while organic ethanol is used to extract terpenes. This ensures that both water-soluble and oil-soluble components of the raw material are obtained for the final product.
The final supplement, therefore, contains the whole arsenal of nutrients you need to feel good and stay healthy.
All raw materials used in Teelixir products are grown organically, in unpolluted regions with no use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. No genetic engineering is carried out on any of the raw materials. In addition, the supplements contain no additives, fillers, and GMO ingredients.
Irradiation is the act of exposing food to ionizing radiation like x-rays and gamma rays as a way of preserving the food and increasing its shelf-life. While it is safe and doesn't make the food radioactive, it could lead to a change in the nutritional content, chemical makeup, and taste of the food.
Teelixir products all have non-irradiated ingredients to protect the taste and nutritional content of the supplements.
Natural foods can get contaminated with heavy metals. Soils can accumulate heavy metals from sources like fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or runoff from rivers polluted by industrial products. As much as we want our cultivated food to be free from such pollutants, this isn't easy to achieve, and they find their way into finished products.
Regular consumption of heavy metals in food could lead to disorders such as the brain, kidney, liver, heart, and reproductive organ malfunction. The thing with heavy metals is that you won't know they're there until they start causing damage. Unfortunately, there is no official standard yet to determine the limits of heavy metals in food. This means that legally sold products can still contain insanely high levels of toxic metals and there's nothing you can do about it.
Teelixir did something about it. They developed the Teelixir Gold Standard to ensure that all products contain safe and minimal levels of toxic metals. Using the rigorous guidelines of the Low Heavy Metals Verified Organization as a benchmark, Teelixir products are tested to make sure they are safe for consumption. The Teelixir Gold Standard stamp is an assurance of safe, clean, and organic products.
Teelixir products are prepared through a combination of ancient Chinese medical knowledge and modern research methods. The result is a selection of highly nutritious and pure supplements that rejuvenate you and keep you feeling young, healthy, and full of energy.
