    Did you know the human body at rest produces 100W of electricity? Shocking jokes aside, electrolytes – substances like sodium and potassium that conduct electricity when dissolved in water – enable homeostasis, hydration, muscle contraction and other critical functions.

  • Sawyer Micro Squeeze Water Filter

    Sawyer knows water filters, having been in the business since 1984.

  • Huel Complete Nutrition Bar

    Huel is an interesting company, and one we admire in many respects.

    Huel is a meal replacement available in powder or liquid form: human fuel to supplement or replace whole foods. We all recognize that "real food" is best, but we can't eat organic grass-fed fair trade locally sourced whatever all the time. We'll leave aside that whole issue and focus on what Huel claims to be: […]
