“When you're body's working right, you're gonna feel it, and you're gonna like it.”
— Colter Merrick

Greetings, SuperFriends!
Today, we’re joined by yet another incredible expert I met during the Summit at Sea event late last year. His name is Colter Merrick.

As someone who doesn’t drink alcohol, I was particularly happy to meet Colter, as he is an expert in non-alcoholic elixirs and cocktails.

What does this have to do with SuperHuman Academy, you ask?

Well, it turns out that Colter runs a company called Elixart, where he and his team develop and produce powerful cocktails with loads of health and mood benefits. After trying just about everything on his menu, I was determined to get him on the show and pick his brain about some of the substances he introduced me to.

In this episode, we talk about everything from traditional herbs and plants used for healing, all the way to the flow of energy in our bodies and in our lives, and everything in between. We talk about some plants and substances that you may never have heard of, and why it might behoove you to experiment with them in your own lives… It's a great episode, and I just know you're going to learn a TON!

Favorite Quotes from Colter Merrick:

“Experience is the best teacher.”

“Stress is probably one of the biggest and most harmful contributors to someone's ill health.”

“Adaptability is one of the keys to survival.”

“Being able to reflect and bring awareness to how things are affecting you… is such a big part of empowerment.”

“I like to call [Kava] ‘the root of happiness.'”

“What I'm trying to do is create a preventative thing, where people are experiencing joy, and they're improving their energetics and their lives.”

“Feeling good is something that we're all very fond of.”

“There are so many masterful, master plants out there that are effective, and you notice them right away.”

    Great interview with Dr. Greg Wells! He mentioned a doctor from Colorado around the 42:30 point of the podcast, discussing turmeric and black pepper. I couldn’t make out the doctor’s name. Can you provide me with his full name and maybe his website or contact info. Interested in his products.

    Maybe oarts of the things he has to share are right, maybe not. If I look at him which impact his nurturing and living style has on himself I see a very old looking man! He is year 1973!! That is not old and he looks definitly much older!! If I would not know his birthyear I would guess that he is in his mid-60ies!! A bit concering for someone who claims his lifestyle is suitable for a long life, isn’t it?
