Tuesday 10 January 2023 By Chloe Lawrance
Between evenings that seem to come rolling in with your afternoon cup of tea, dwindling dedication to your New Year’s resolutions and a social life that leaves a lot to be desired, the January slump is well and truly here. But it’s not all doom and gloom: look to these member-founded brands to help boost your health and wellbeing, lift your spirits and leave you feeling ready to take on the rest of the month.
1. Karmacist: the mental wellness supplements
Your supplement routine deserves an upgrade for 2023 – and Karmacist’s daily brain-supporting supplements promise to boost mental wellbeing by tapping into the link between gut health and mood. Founded by Dr Anne-Claire Walch and journalist Tim Samuels, and developed in conjunction with scientists from Harvard and Stanford, these capsules contain up to 34 botanicals, minerals and vitamins, from positivity-promoting saffron to energy-boosting magnesium.

2. Innermost: the does-it-all wellness brand
Founded by Shivraj Bassi, Innermost is a range of wellness and nutrition boosters that fit seamlessly into your daily routine, all housed in chic packaging you’ll want to show off. There are protein powders (including vegan options), pre-workout, booster powders designed to be stirred into your daily shakes or smoothies, and more. You can even book a consultation with an expert nutritionist to help you realign your health goals and begin building healthy habits designed to last.
3. TRIP: the CBD experts
TRIP was founded by member couple Olivia Ferdi and Dan Khoury after they discovered the power of CBD to relieve stress and regulate sleep back in 2018. Each can – from cold brew coffee to sparkling, fruity flavours – is formulated with 15mg of CBD, alongside wellbeing-boosting natural adaptogens for ‘stress-free sipping’. Pop a can in your backpack for an afternoon pick-me-up (CBD is touted for boosting creativity and productivity levels) or swap out your evening cocktail for a Dry January-friendly alternative.
4. Kollo: the next-gen liquid collagen
You might have heard the word collagen bandied around in beauty and wellness circles for quite some time; type 1 marine collagen peptides can help to reduce joint pain and have a positive effect on skin with regular use. Kollo, cofounded by Natasha Whiting and Jenni Falconer, harnesses this with daily sachets of liquid collagen that contribute towards healthier skin, hair and nails, while helping to maintain the function of healthy joints, bones and cartilage. You get an impressive bang for your buck, too: each easy-to-take sachet promises a dose of 10,000mg.

Mushrooms are having a moment in the world of wellness, with DIRTEA founders (and brothers) Simon and Andrew Salter utilising handcrafted mushroom extract powders to create a range of super blends that improve focus, boost energy (without the crash of caffeine), reduce anxiety, and improve sleep. Each blend can be mixed with hot water for a comforting mushroom tea, or mixed in with your morning smoothie or afternoon coffee for a quick pick-me-up.
