true to our roots
Zolt was born of the enduring questions: How can we be our best selves more of the time? How can we feel more balanced and grounded? How can we enhance our mental focus, in particular, making it easier for ourselves to tackle the pressing matters before us? How can plants–and superplants in particular–be part of the solution to helping bring wellness to our every day?
We all do our best when we can. And knowing your body matters — fully understanding the circumstances under which we do our best, which often go beyond the basic factors of eating well and getting enough sleep. Our own experiences have taught us the value of establishing a wellness regimen for optimizing our own mental, physical, and emotional performance.
We knew that our own betterment required a clearer understanding of what our bodies needed and identifying the conditions under which we personally excelled. And research led us to suspect that superplants were a big part of our individual equations for success.
IDENTIFYING A NEED
We knew that plants, specifically terpene botanicals and adaptogens were somehow helpful in allowing us to strike a nice balance of calm and focus; however, we were frustrated with the inconsistent dosing and efficacy of the products available in the consumer market. And their taste? No thanks.
Having worked in the beverage industry, we understood the importance of flavor and aroma and wondered if there were emerging technologies we could modify and apply to plants. Big words came up*: emulsification, nanoemulsification, droplet size, atomization, agglomeration. (Yes, there was a bit of a learning curve.) So we sought out the brightest scientific minds in those areas to help us determine if our vision was even feasible.
Could we make superplants taste good? Could we make its dosing of bioavailable components more precise? And we dared to ask: Could we possibly make them even more effective by improving their bioavailability? And could we blend them with other components, particularly funghi, to build a better means for people to find balance and wellness?
So we started formulating. And testing. And adjusting. Ultimately, we created a totally new, far smarter, wildly effective, and completely delicious ingestible superplant format: Zolt.
