Enter: Hormetic Tech

Hormetic Tech: Equipment designed specifically for the purpose of inducing a hormetic stress response by using physical stimulus such as heat or cold.

Try and google ‘hormetic tech’. Nothing.

Plenty on hormesis, hormetic stress, even something on curcumin… nothing describing hormetic technologies.

So then, let this be the first place you read about it.

But what is Hormetic Stress?

Hormesis refers to the process by which exposure to low levels of stressors, such as heat, cold, exercise or fasting can actually improve resilience and health. This phenomenon has been observed across all organisms including yeast, bacteria, mice and most certainly humans…. It’s how we adapted to surviving in this world. Recently this phenomenon has led to the development of hormetic technologies that induce these beneficial stressors in a controlled and safe manner.

Found—Space is now offering two very powerful forms of hormetic technologies in infrared sun and cold plunge.

Get hot + get cold = Live longer. Simple.

At Found—Space, we believe that the key to a healthy and vibrant life lies in the body’s ability to adapt and respond to stress. The ability to respond to physical stressors such as exercise, sauna and ice bath directly translates in our ability to handle the modern, mental stress of life in the 2020’s.

Our bodies are incredibly resilient and adaptable, and we can harness this power to improve our health and well-being. This is where hormetic tech comes in. By exposing the body to controlled stressors on a regular basis, we can activate a range of beneficial physiological cascades that improve our health and resilience.

One of the most popular hormetic technologies is of course sauna. Saunas have been used for thousands of years by cultures around the world, and for good reason. When you sit in a sauna, your body temperature rises, which triggers a number of beneficial responses. Some of these include the activation of heat shock proteins, improved cardiovascular fitness and more supple skin. Your heart rate increases, which improves heart health, and your blood vessels dilate, which improves circulation. Regular sauna use has also been shown to positively affect inflammatory markers and to improving brain function too.

Ice bath or cold plunge has also been shown to have similar affects. Improving cognitive ability, the building of new brain synapses, activation of cold shock proteins and the affect on mitochondria health.

Use in combination, these two products, in my opinion (which yes of course is biased… but the science has made me so) are two of the most powerful health products in the world as they positively influencing such a broad spectrum of health outcomes.

At Found—Space we are a product development and software company. With sauna and the ice bath, we are now leading the industry toward hormetic tech products being a staple product for the home, for the benefit of human health.

You will be seeing much in this space over the coming years.
