Meet the Brand – WillPowders
We interviewed the Founder of one of our fabulous suppliers to find out a little more about who they are and where it all began.
We would love to hear a little bit about WillPowders and where it all began for the brand…
I’m Davinia Taylor; the founder of WillPowders and the UK’s leading female biohacker. To be honest I was sick and tired of having to order things from the USA. It was costing a fortune and I believe the British public has a right to healthy ingredients (from source) at the touch of a button too.
And of course, we would also love to hear about the brains behind the brand! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspires you?
Like most people, I’m inspired by people who overcome challenges. People who face life and life’s terms, who have the energy and the grit and determination to plough on in the face of adversity. That’s why I developed this brand in the middle of a pandemic; exactly what the bank told me not to do!
Sometimes you’ve just got to go with your gut instinct … (assuming that the microbiome is healthy!)
Where did the name WillPowders come from?
When I wrote my first book it’s not a diet what kept popping up for me was people saying they had a lack of willpower. Our company provides products which means you don’t have to rely on willpower alone we have active ingredients that help you avoid cravings before they even start.
What attracted you to the keto and low-carb food market?
Basically, it works. I’ve battled the bloat since being a child due to refined flour in pasta, breads and whole grains marketed as a “healthy food”.
They have all been the bane of my life until I discovered a lower-carb protocol. Unbelievably still to this day, the NHS force it on us and our children! It’s scandalous that we have such a reliance on sugar for energy. I was also definitely scarred by the low-fat fad of the 80s 90s and 00’s. I do believe it could’ve been the basis of my depression.
Can you tell us something unique and special about your products?
Most functional foods taste disgusting. However, I can guarantee that our keto creamer is delicious. It’s a best seller and the amount of positive feedback I get about the taste and how versatile it is as a product is mind-blowing. It really does turn a coffee into a creamy cappuccino in seconds while giving you MCTs fuel for your brain, thus crushing cravings for carbs!!!! Win, Win!
Do you have any exciting plans for the future of WillPowders that you can share with us?
We are expanding the range in 2023. I am currently developing products tailored for men, women, and kids, so watch this space!!
Do you have any final thoughts that you would like to share or any words of wisdom?
What I found with diving into the keto lifestyle is cycling. It is really beneficial, and it stops the weight loss plateau. So, when you have reached your target weight try adding some carbs now and again this will help you become “metabolically flexible.” Also, a brilliant tip and something I do about four times a week is to have carbohydrates in the early evening with your dinner. Carbohydrates (eg sourdough and raw cheese/ baked potatoes with grass-fed butter etc ) produce serotonin which then converts into melatonin our sleep hormone which will then guarantee you a better, deeper, more restorative sleep!
