In our last box of 2021, we wanted to bring you some items designed to restore your sense of calm, healing, and connectedness with others. Some of these great contributions are there to help provide pain relief and restore physical body functions, while others are there to help relieve stress.
As always, we’ve partnered with some incredible brands for our Golden Ticket giveaways that feature generous offers on powerful restorative technologies. Thank you for subscribing to the Dave Asprey Box, and I wish you the Merriest of Holiday Seasons!
Have you ever experienced a cupping treatment? If you haven’t, maybe you’ve seen professional athletes on TV or people at your gym with the dark circular bruises, looking like they got attacked by a giant octopus.
In your box, you’ll find a custom set of cups from GameOn® that you can use to do cupping treatments at home. Cupping has been used for thousands of years in Eastern Medicine to heal injuries and RESTORE blood flow to specific areas that need treatment.
When you apply the cup, it creates suction that pulls the skin upward, gently spreading the fascia, the dense layer of connective tissue under your skin that covers your entire body. Blood is drawn to the treatment area to help deliver beneficial nutrients and carry away toxins, accelerating the healing process. Cupping can be instrumental in injury prevention and boosting your recovery after workouts. Just five minutes of cupping can be as effective as long sessions of deep tissue massage.
The cupping kit in your box is a limited-edition set custom-made for you with Dave Asprey Box colors. It features two different styles of cups. The innovative GRPS Cups feature an innovative patented octagon shape ‘plunger’ or ‘joystick’ style design great for easy manipulation for static and dynamic cupping techniques. The JOLT cups are a fantastic option for joints, trigger points, and feet.
All the cups are made from non-reactive food-grade silicone free of BPA, phthalates, PVC, latex, and other fillers. They are durable and easy to carry in your gym bag or when traveling. Cupping is a powerful therapy to be able to use at home, and I am excited for you to try it for yourself.
In your box, you’ll find a full pack of TroCalm, the newest offering from our friends at Troscriptions. TroCalm is a precision-dosed, pharmaceutical grade, and physician formulated troche carefully crafted with four calming ingredients, including Kava Kava, CBD, CBG, and nicotinyl-GABA, a novel combination of niacin (Vitamin B3) and the neurotransmitter GABA. These compounds can help relax you, quiet your mind, and melt away stress. Whether you’re looking to fight anxiety, sleep better, or unwind after a stressful day, these troches are a potent tool that can help take the edge off.
Troches (pronounced “troh-key”) are small lozenges designed to dissolve between your cheek and gums to slowly deliver the powerful ingredients over time. Each TroCalm troche is scored into fourths for easy dose titration, and it’s recommended you start with a quarter troche to see how you feel.
Unlike Troscriptions other famous (or maybe infamous?!) “Smurf Nootropics,” which use methylene blue, which will turn your tongue blue, TroCalm also contains annatto, a potent antioxidant that also happens to make your tongue a lovely shade of orange.
The Troscriptions team features four physicians, led by Dr. Ted Achacoso, one of the smartest people on the planet. Dr. Ted has been featured on the podcast multiple times and was a speaker at this year’s Biohacking Conference. Every formulation they create contains pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and is tested for purity and potency. Each batch is made in a GMP facility under the supervision of a compounding pharmacist with over 30 years of experience. Their products have taken the biohacking world by storm this past year, and I’m excited to share this new formula with you.
from Timeline Nutrition
In my recent book, Fast This Way, I wrote extensively about “autophagy,” the self-cleaning process your cells use to RESTORE themselves by taking out the garbage. Autophagy is one of the most impactful benefits of fasting, and it makes every aspect of your biology run better. This microscopic process also occurs within your mitochondria (called “mitophagy”), the powerhouses that create energy for every cell in your body. Anything you can do to create more energy is worth doing, in my opinion. While fasting is a free way to stimulate mitophagy, some people don’t find
it easy or convenient, and it can take days of fasting to kickstart the process. There are few things that bestow mitophagy as a benefit, but that’s where Mitopure™ Softgels come in.
In your box, you’ll find a package of Mitopure™ Softgels. Mitopure™ contains a unique compound called Urolithin A, which can be found in small amounts in foods such as pomegranates. Not only is Urolithin A hard to find in readily available food sources, but you also need a very specific and rare gut microbiome in order to make it naturally in meaningful amounts.
I’m one of those unfortunate people who can’t convert it naturally. Because quality of energy production ranks right at the top of my list of things that are important, I’ve made Mitopure™ a part of my daily routine. Mitopure™ is the first pure form of Urolithin A available to the general public. Until recently, it was expensive even for labs to get in small quantities. Timeline Nutrition also offers a powder form that you can use in a wide variety of food recipes, including your coffee, but I personally prefer the soft gels and wanted to include them in this box for you to try.
In your box, you’ll find an all-natural Cork Body Wheel from Inviguri. This 6-inch Cork Body Wheel can be used in a variety of ways to RESTORE function and relieve pain. The wheel is extra firm and will deliver intense pressure on trigger points in your back or light pressure on your neck to relieve tension headaches.
The spinal groove built into the Cork Body Wheel ensures there is less pressure on the spine to focus the pressure on the erector spine muscles in your back where it’s needed. The extra-wide design and grippy surface provide better stability while rolling and stretching, but it’s still small enough to throw in your gym bag or travel luggage. An Australian physiotherapist designed the wheel to be comfortable, versatile, and effective.
Best of all, this wheel is made from sustainable cork instead of cheap plastic like the other wheels you’ll find on the market. The cork trees that supplied the cork for these wheels were planted decades ago and will continue to live and supply cork decades into the future.
Cork is an incredibly strong and durable material, and the wheel is SGS certified to support over 800 lbs. The cork is also naturally odor-free and moisture-wicking.
Whether you use it during yoga sessions, to help fix your posture, or to relieve sore muscles, I hope you’ll find this wheel useful. Inviguri also has a 10-inch wheel that offers moderate pressure and a larger design for additional versatility if you’d like to complete your set.
Make sure to visit their website at inviguri.com for more information or to purchase additional wheels of either size.
You’ve likely heard the stories of people struggling to interact with others after such long periods of pandemic isolation. Maybe you’ve even experienced this first-hand. The MyIntent Question Cards in your box are a great tool to help RESTORE the connections with yourself and others in a meaningful way.
The cards feature 33 questions designed to provide a fun way for you to engage with a purpose and are grouped into categories that can help you explore and share the things that matter most, such as your greatest passions, goals, and dreams. Use them to stimulate mindful conversations while reconnecting with friends and loved ones. They are great as a team-building tool to connect on a deeper level with clients and co-workers, or as a journaling prompt to inspire introspective thoughts for meditation.
The Question Cards can also be used to help you identify your WORD – a specific intention to help you become the best version of yourself. Can you guess my new WORD? I chose “DANGER.”
The MyIntent Project started back in 2013 as a catalyst for meaningful conversations and positive action. Their goal is to inspire people to share more truth and inspiration with each other. You may have even seen your favorite celebrities wearing a MyIntent bracelet or necklace. MyIntent has collaborated with us over the past five years, serving at the Biohacking Conference and providing bracelets for previous box subscribers. It’s great to see their impact spread so far in recent years.
The Question Cards make great gifts as family stocking stuffers or in packages for your team at work. I encourage you to use them to find your WORD and pick a piece of jewelry from the MyIntent site at myintent.org, or maybe even consider picking up a Maker Kit to create MyIntent jewelry for others.
from mindbody matrix
In your box, you’ll find a package of products from MindBody Matrix.
MindBody Matrix was founded by my good friend, Dr. TK Huynh. Dr. TK is 1 of only four pharmacists in the world to complete a Fellowship in Anti-Aging & Regenerative Functional Medicine. MindBody Matrix is a bio-energetic company devoted to incorporating integrative science and energetic medicine to create innovative approaches to pain management.
The MindBody Capsules and Activator Drops you have can be used separately, but when used together, they form a potent energetic combination to RESTORE your sense of well-being, balance inflammation, and combat stress. The Activator drops may promote better absorption of nutrients by calming the guts and enhancing energetic cellular communication, making all your supplements more effective. The Capsules contain a powerful blend of herbal extracts traditionally used to calm your body’s pain response by relaxing the mind and balancing levels of inflammation.
The blend includes well-known traditional Eastern Medicine powerhouses such as tumeric and boswella but also holy basil, lemon balm, gaba, and l-theanine to balance all the “worries” and “mind chatter” stress. What makes them both stand out from the market is that they been “pretreated” with bio-energetic infoceuticals and light therapy. This targeted approach helps to transform your pain management process by promoting better communication between your mind, body, and spirits.
Follow the instructions on the card in your box to combine the two products for next-level pain relief.
Winners will be announced and emailed details about their prize.
