Which wellness products and tools are actually effective at keeping us happy and healthy?
There are few regulations in the wellness industry and no real requirement for wellness companies to make products that deliver real positive impacts. With so many wellness products making un-tested claims, it can be especially hard to find quality products. Although we consult with many well-being companies to develop, test, and communicate their scientific foundations, we believe empowering consumers with information on high-quality wellness products can lead to greater positive impact for us all.
