The same expensive dubiously beneficial ‘wellness supplements’ are available for sale at Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s tony Goop lifestyle blog and at Texas-based conspiracy-monger Alex Jones’ InfoWars.com said Quartz on Thursday.
While the conventional wisdom says red and blue America will never see eye-to-eye and that the cultural gulf that between ‘coastal elites’ and ‘white working class America’ is all but uncrossable – it seems Lululemon-wearing Manhattanites and angry rural Trump supporters can agree that adding ‘eleuthero root – cordyceps mushrooms and ‘nascent iodine’ to your diet can somehow boost your life essence.
‘Near the end of a profile of Amanda Chantal Bacon – founder of the ‘wellness’ brand Moon Juice – the New York Times Magazine noted that many of the alternative-medicine ingredients in her products are sold — with very different branding — on the Infowars store’ wrote Quartz’ Nikhil Sonnad.
Infowars on the other hand is a dark corner of the American right – heavy on guns – light on government intervention and still very mad at Obama’.
Quartz assembled a compendium of ingredients sold at both Moon Juice and InfoWars – the names they fly under at each site — “Super Male Vitality” at InfoWars is sold as “Sex Dust” Moon Juice — and their respective costs.
