Health & Nutrition Research

Welcome to!

We are a group of researchers who publish the latest news, research and opinions on health supplements, nutrition, and bio-hacking more generally.

Drawing on a diverse range of backgrounds, from pharmaceutical research to personal training, we provide the most up-to-date information on the latest trends in health, nutrition, and weight management.

Larasa research

The reason we started Larasa is because we all grew sick and tired of the amount of pseudo-science being spread on the internet. Over the years, we have all became incredibly irritated by the popularity of diet fads, the ubiquity of scam supplements, and the preponderance of ineffective health advice. We repeatedly found that lay people would unwittingly spread misinformation about how to eat right and stay healthy.

When we eventually found the source of the false facts, it was invariably a supplement manufacturer or an industry as a whole.

In almost every case, the diet fads and scam supplements of today were concocted by PR agencies and in-house marketing teams to help supplement manufacturers make money.

In some cases, this misinformation is actually harmful.

Larasa is our attempt at combating this worrying spread of pseudo-science and supplement industry-led PR.


What we talk about

We will be taking a very broad look at the health, exercise and supplement sectors. It is our mission to help you see through the PR propaganda and find the advice that will actually help you live a healthier, happier, longer life. That means covering as many different aspects of health as we can, including:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Exercise & training
  3. Supplementation
  4. Sleep and recovery
  5. Diet

While the scope of Larasa is broad – our research covers everything from the benefits of deep breathing to natural study supplements – we will attempt to keep things as in-depth and as concise as possible. That means no “complete guides” or “everything you need to know” articles.

Instead, we’ll take a substance, diet, training regime, whatever, and look at one particular benefit to see if it is truly backed by science.

Our research

Our research covers a wide range of subjects, as listed above. We try to provide useful, scientifically-accurate information on as many different aspects of health, nutrition, and performance enhancement as possible. However, we do have our specialties; areas that we have particular expertise or experience in which we talk about more than others.

Here is a brief overview of some of our areas of expertise.


Anti-inflammatory diets

Several contributors to Larasa have done extensive academic research on the relationship between diet and inflammation. More than one of our contributors have done extensive research into the relationship between pro-inflammatory diets and negative health or performance outcomes.

This is a very important area of inquiry right now. There are several diets out there which are touted as being anti-inflammatory. Much more worryingly, there is a lot of misinformation on the internet these days regarding inflammation’s role in causing chronic illness.

Inflammation is relevant when discussing several chronic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic joint pain, irritable bowel syndrome, and more. It is also true that your diet and lifestyle can have a huge effect on the level of inflammation in your body – both a positive and negative effect.

But the idea that all illness isĀ causedĀ by inflammation, or that simply dropping one particular food will reverse all inflammation-related problems, is completely false.



We have a great deal of experience writing about natural cognitive enhancers. These are substances which bring about significant improvements in mental performance and brain health without causing notable side effects.

The word “nootropics” embraces an extremely wide array of different supplements. Some purely heighten focus and increase mental energy. Others have more long-term positive effects on memory function or brain health more generally.

Using nootropics can make a profound difference to your day to day life, whether it’s making your more productive at work or more effective in sports. It is increasingly difficult to find quality information on nootropics that you can trust. We will draw on our extensive experience using nootropics to help you find the right cognitive enhancers for you.

Here are some of our most popular posts on nootropics:
