But, if you’re reading this you can skip the line using this custom link and level up your nutrition.

Drinkable Tech


$120.00 for a 3 pack, or $4.00 a serving.

Only 12% of Americans are metabolically healthy. H.V.M.N. found a solution to reverse this trend by fueling our bodies with ketones, allowing us to experience myriad health benefits including sustained energy, boosted endurance and recovery, enhanced mental clarity, and appetite control. 

Ketone-IQ™ harnesses the efficacy of ketones in a simple, daily beverage. Elevating ketones often takes a lot of time and effort, usually involving fasting or a strict keto diet — until now. These scientific advances arrive at a moment when our metabolism is under attack, and Ketone-IQ utilizes these advances in a powerful drink that tastes pretty good too.


Starter kits from $40

Rise, MUD/WTR’s original blend, is a coffee alternative made with organic ingredients celebrated by cultures young and old for their health and performance benefits.

The mission of MUD\WTR is to improve human existence through what we put in our mug. Their beverages, :rise and :rest, were created as better-for-you bookends to everyone’s day, reinventing morning and evening rituals. More importantly, the brand empowers people to think better, and live healthier.
