I’m going to be starting a new WTF Is… series based on all of the different things I see floating around in the wellness/holistic/health/beauty/etc space. Some of these products and supplements are awesome and I think serve to help us or at least can contribute to certain aspects of our well-being.

I want to give brief overviews to certain products, herbs, supplements, and substances to hopefully encourage you to kickstart your own research into these things. My information is not the end all be all and you should always do your own research on things before you decide to implement them into your daily routine. Because what works for me, or anyone else for that matter, will not always work for you.
I think the age of the guru is coming to a close- it’s time for the age of YOU!
