Helping you feel
good great is our mission.
We do this by creating science-backed products to combat modern-day stressors that slow you down. We promise to help you feel your best, so you can do more of what you love.
We’re a biohacking supplement company that started with the basic idea that you shouldn’t have to compromise between having fun and being productive. It all came about when our co-founder, Sisun Lee, went on a trip to South Korea — a land where the work hard, play hard lifestyle is the norm. After a late night out with friends, he came across bottled tonics promised to end rough mornings after drinking. Amazed by how effective they were, he dove into research and connected with Dr. Jing Liang, a DHM researcher and USC professor. From there, the first version of Morning Recovery was born.

"No matter what industry you’re in — whether it’s building a supplement like Morning Recovery or software products like Facebook — at the end of the day, the goal is to service customers."
“It’s important to create products that provide value to people. Seeing someone benefit from what you’ve created is success for me.”

Partnership with USC.
