On March 17th, 2023, Dr. Christopher Vickery and Georgia Hirst discussed how Landkind is harnessing the power of synthetic biology and the wellness of you and the planet.
Dr. Christopher Vickery is the Head of the HARMONY™ platform and Head of Research for Landkind. Dr. Vickery’s work explores the intricacies of plant chemistry to sustainably recreate valuable natural products with pure essential bioactive ingredients.
Georgia Hirst is a Landkind Ambassador, talented actress, charity activist, and wellness enthusiast. Called Gee for short, she is best known for her role as Torvi on the Amazon series, Vikings.
During the early portion of the 25-minute live Q&A, Georgia poses a series of questions about Landkind science.
The Landkind Difference
"Is it true that other vitamins and supplements currently on the market don't contain their promised levels of bioactive ingredients?"
Dr. Vickery: I think what's important to address here is again, the idea of consistency. I think there [are] two ways to think about [consistency]. One, of course, as we talked about before, having a consistent amount of the bioactive molecule that you want is sometimes an issue.
For example, certain crops, even plants grown in different locations around the world are going to have completely different amounts of everything in them just based on their environment, based on how long they're grown. So there's huge variability here. We really want to eliminate that kind of variability. So you're getting a consistent kind of effect and feeling when you're taking the LK-01 product.
But I think at the same time we have to think about how other supplements are made, specifically plant extract[s].
Let's say we have a plant extract that has Salidroside in it, but we want a certain amount of Salidroside per dose. If the plant only has a little bit, that means we have to use a lot, A LOT of extract for each dose. With all that extract comes extra stuff that may not be desirable, [and] may even affect how Salidroside is acting in your body.
Again, having that consistency is eliminating not only variability in how much Salidroside you're getting but also how much other stuff you're getting as well. So with this [LK-01 Pure Salidroside], we don't have to worry about that at all.
"So one of the reasons I really wanted to try Landkind was because of the connection to Vikings. There is some research to suggest that Vikings used the Rhodiola plant to stave off fatigue and give them more energy. And I know there are some other supplements on the market that use Rhodiola, but what is the standout difference with Landkind's LK-01?"
Dr. Vickery: I think in general, Landkind really draws on that kind of information, that kind of history right. Vikings have used this. Why did they use it? To stave off their fatigue. But now we're asking, what specifically from the Rhodiola plant is responsible for that kind of effect that they were getting?
And so what sets us apart is, we're really honing in on the very specific ingredients. One thing that we know is responsible for that.So with that, we don't have to worry about anything else that's coming along with the plant itself. We don't have to worry about harvesting the plant since we know exactly what part of the plant is important for that effect.
Dr. Vickery: We can then take that, make it a different way, where we don't have to worry about over-harvesting, we don't have to worry about anything like that.So in that sense, you're getting a very pure compound just so that [the] Salidroside is going to give you that same effect.
Along with that comes consistency. The recommended dose is 60 milligrams. So in that [60 milligrams] Salidroside per day, you know for sure that in each of those doses, you're going to get exactly 60 milligrams. We feel that's really important.
A focus of ours is to make sure that when you're experiencing something like LK-01, you're going to get the same experience each time. So if you order a package today, and you order a package a year from now, they're going to be the same and you're going to have the same effect. You don't have to worry about a batch being off or something like that.
"Which I didn't realize that was a thing until I started chatting to the Landkind team that actually with normal supplements, there's not necessarily any consistency. Within some can be a weird dodgy batch. "
Dr. Vickery: Exactly. Yeah. And it's hard to tell. For example, for drugs, we have the FDA that's going to say, okay, the drug has to be this. Unfortunately, a lot of times there isn't anything like that for supplements. So having a batch that's off; who's going to bring that up? Who's going to discover that? It's really difficult.
So we really want to make it one of our missions to make sure, again, it's going to be the same amount each time. It's going to be held to our extremely high purity and safety standards. Again, like you mentioned, it's consistently [giving] the same effect each time.
Clinically Proven. Ethicialy Made.
