Artefact is formulated less as a food supplement solely for deficiencies and more as a stabilizing, strengthening, and combative complement to our modern, demanding, and thus stress-burdened lifestyle.
It began with a decade of medical-humanitarian assignments in war zones—harsh, natural environments with the most hygiene-challenged and disease-ridden regions worldwide—where we came into close contact with indigenous, resilient, and resourceful people with in-depth knowledge and understanding of adaptogenic and nutraceutical-like plants. A collection of plants emerged: resistant, versatile, nutrient-rich, strong, and sublime in the adaptation process from their respective regional growth conditions (e.g., soil, altitude, moisture, temperature, absence or surplus of growth substances). For hundreds of years, these adaptogenic plants have been significant for survival. Throughout the centuries, they became included entities in traditional medicine, but have also been used as substances to treat deficiencies as well as enrich and enhance the body and mind.
