Lost Empire Herbs is a family owned and operated business created by three like-minded brothers who have a passion for living a healthy, athletic lifestyle.
With over a decade of combined knowledge, cultivated out of real time experience, dedication, and experimentation, a decision was made to share direct knowledge of herbal medicines to the masses. Being that living an active lifestyle is the core of who we are, we decided to focus in particular on the path of the athlete.
The word “empire” often is associated with political creations of man, however, at Lost Empire Herbs, the word empire is associated with the empire of nature.
The wisdom of nature is very quickly becoming lost in our modern, technologically advanced societies. It is our mission at Lost Empire Herbs to reawaken people to the inherit wisdom of nature and to promote and share the knowledge, tools, and lifestyle practices that reconnect themselves to nature and themselves in order to achieve their maximum potential in their athletic performance and well being.

About Logan Christopher
Logan Christopher has been called a physical culture renaissance man for his work in many different areas of fitness and strength training. While many people become experts in one specific area he seeks to master them all.
As a performing strongman he has pulled an antique fire truck by his hair, juggled kettlebells that have been lit on fire, done weighted back flips, supported half a ton in a wrestler’s bridge position, and many of the more typical oldtime strongmen feats like phonebook tearing and nail bending.
Being born without genetic gifts for strength he sought out the best training information to develop his strength. In addition to learning from top trainers he went outside the field of strength training. This led him into mental training and sports psychology which he has explored in depth, becoming a Neuro Linguistic Programming Trainer and hypnotist. As well as a certified Eden Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology Practitioner.
That’s also how he got started in the field of health and nutrition which inevitably led into herbalism. Some of his many teachers include Ron Teeguarden, the foremost expert in Chinese Tonic Herbalism in the West and Sajah Popham at the School of Evolutionary Herbalism.
His personal philosophy is to bring together the best movement skill, health information, and mental training to achieve peak performance. He is the author of many books and video programs to help people increase their strength, skills, health and mental performance. You can find more information at his other website www.LegendaryStrength.com.
Logan handles heads the marketing and does a lot of writing for Lost Empire Herbs. He lives in Felton, California along with his wife Charlotte.
About Zane Christopher
To be effective in this world, one needs to take responsibility for one’s life. This means examining what one believes and the actions it leads to in a life. Zane has been trying to find a way through the mess of modern civilized life for awhile now. His health journey has taken him from the Sad American Diet (SAD) to one of ancestral traditions.
Separation from those conglomerated institutions and agencies that provide for us (food, water, health, education, etc.) is of paramount importance to him. To do this we must slowly take back sovereign control of each. We must take responsibility for OUR lives. We do this for the future, not for the self. Benefits of course accrue to the self but that is not the goal.
Zane is, thus, working towards acquiring his own food, whether by digging in the soil or killing with the tools mankind has designed to become homo sapiens. Returning to a simpler time where connections between what you consume is a daily activity is his goal. To become a part of the ecosystem again. Zane does not see us as somehow divorced from the world. All our actions have consequences, whether good or ill, no matter the point of view we may possess.
Recognizing that, it is a process to change oneself and one’s society. Change is often incrementally slow but any change toward a more complete understanding of our place on this planet and in this life is worthy.
If you wish to see what incremental changes he is making to transition to a more sustainable, healthy way of life, or wish to keep him in check with constructive criticism, follow him on Instagram @mandude25
Zane is the Content Manager and writes articles and emails. He handles all the laboratory testing at Lost Empire Herbs.
About Cloud Christopher
Cloud’s first real experiences with the herbs was when he was working as a trucker driving from state to state. While so many of the other truckers fueled these long drives with Monsters and coffee, he found shilajit would not only provide him with stable energy, but he’d come back leaner than before he left.
He’s filled many roles. A former bodybuilder, then a Crossfit coach, finally a MovNat instructor, not to mention serving 4 years in the U.S. Army, stationed in Alaska.
He’s a father of the original pine pollen baby, Violet, along with his wife Ari (who does some of our graphic design work), with a second baby on the way any day now…
Cloud oversees Production and Customer Service. He also handles suppliers, sponsorship’s, and coordinates promotional events.
