How Landkind Bioengineering Protects The Planet

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 25-minute live Q&A, Dr. Vickery and Georgia explore how bioengineering is forging the way to sustainable wellness for people and the planet. 

Vitality for People & Planet

"Obviously we're all trying to make a difference to the positive impact on the planet. I think in whatever way we can, it's important to be making steps towards protecting our environment. And obviously, that's something that Landkind really stands firmly in, that they are trying to leave the ecosystems alone. So can you explain how Lankind's unique bioengineering protects the planet and the wellness of people?"

Dr. Vickery: Yeah, absolutely. [Let's] start with the people. As I mentioned, we're really committed to purity and ensuring there's nothing else coming through in the process. 

So that [when] you're taking the Salidroside product, you're getting Salidroside. So we really ensure that we're putting ourselves to extremely high standards so that anything that we are offering is going to be safe.

As far as protecting the planet, one of the reasons we want to continue with products like [LK-01 Pure] Salidroside is that the plants that they come from are endangered. They're very hard to isolate and already there are issues with over-harvesting of the natural supply.

Dr. Vickery: Rhodiola grows in very harsh conditions [and] very high altitudes. There [are] really not a lot of places where you can actually get it. As Rhodiola is becoming a more popular supplement, we're very quickly dwindling those kinds of natural, really, habitats of Rhodiola. So being able to have all of the desirable effects from Rhodiola without even having to touch the plant is really key to us. The thing that comes to my mind is the parable: give a man a fish, feed him per day, teach a man to fish. So instead of getting a fish, which is isolating the plant, we're instead learning from the plant itself, how it makes the Salidroside.

So again, just by looking at all of the enzymes and the tools it uses, we can then learn from that. Now we've implemented that in our system to [truly] produce the Salidroside without having to harm the natural environment.

"Well, that's interesting to me because when I first started working with you guys, I assumed it was from the plant. Just from reaching out and I was like, oh, that makes sense. And you guys were like, no, we definitely don't do that. We're leaving it in its natural environment, which is obviously a great thing."

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. "

Clinically Proven. Ethicialy Made.

At Landkind we are committed to providing consumers with access to pure, sustainable biosynthetic Salidroside that is backed by industry-leading science and proven results. We hold ourselves to the highest standards for safety, efficacy, and purity, which is why we are conducting thorough clinical evaluations with respected academic and industry partners. 

The results of our ISTO clinical trial showed that LK-01 Pure Salidroside is clinically proven to improve energy levels, mitigate the effects of fatigue, and increase oxygen uptake within the first dose of use. 

Conventional stimulants trick your body into recognizing false energy, LK-01 activates your cells to naturally produce more sustainable energy, boosting endurance and enhancing your mood. An added bonus, experiencing this means all of the energy you would normally derive from caffeine without the the anxiety or crash. 

A Proven Example of Bioengineering

Protecting precious ecosystems, endangered species, and our planet begins with making more sustainable choices for our daily lives. Landkind's LK-01 is the world's first clinically proven, sustainably-engineered, pure Salidroside. A supplement that packs all the benefits of taking Rhodiola while leaving nature untouched. 

If you're ready to beat fatigue and experience mental clarity, LK-01 Pure Salidroside might be a solution for you. The potency, purity, consistency, and efficacy of LK-01 are unmatched. Support your cognitive function with two capsules daily for peak performance.
