A Tea is BornI’ve owned a tea company for 9 years now. For all of those nine years I’ve only sold three teas, Gynostemma, Mulberry and Oolong. As a scientist, I wish I could say that I chose those scientifically after years of dedicated research But that’s not what happened. I’d been introduced to gynostemma by a friend while on vacation in Thailand. After feeling the effects of gynostemma on my own body I decided to build a tea company to bring gynostemma into wider circulation in the USA....

Entropy: Entropy is the measure of disorder in a system. In the world of physics we talk about the entropy in the context of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. This law, stated formally, is: In any cyclic process the entropy will increase or remain the same. The great writer Chinua Achebe said it much more succinctly, “Things fall apart.”As so often happens in physics, we make fancy, complex mathematical constructs to prove something everybody already knows. Any one who has over had the experience...

The Origins of Integra Tea (Part 3) - It's all about the physics, Baby! - Hysteresis

by | Thursday, November 20, 2014 | 0 comment(s)

Last time we talked about the 3 physics laws at work behind aging and many illnesses. Today we take a look at the second on our list, hysteresis. Hysteresis is a physics principle that says that for (virtually) all systems and substances you cannot predict future behavior without knowing information about the past. In short, systems and materials have memory and what they do in the future is affected by what has happened to them in the past.You don’t have to understand the physics to...
