Everything You'd Like to Know About Your Body, In One Place


Ever hit the “funny bone” in your arm? Well, did you know that the funny bone is not a bone? Instead, it is actually a nerve on your elbow that communicates with the brain about sensory input from certain fingers, areas on the palm of your hand, and on parts of your forearm.


An important part of the body, the heart helps pump blood to the rest of the body and is crucial in cardiovascular health. In fact, the heart pumps about 1.5 gallons of blood per minute and a little over 2000 gallons throughout the day. Project Biotech's Superfoods contain antioxidants and vitamin E, both of which are proven through research to help the cardiovascular system to recover quicker and more effectively after exercise.

The stomach is an organ in the left side of the body that is responsible for digesting and breaking down food. However, although the stomach is important, it may not be as necessary to the body as we think; did you know that you can survive without a stomach? This procedure, called a gastrectomy, is often recommended to patients with stomach cancer.


In the human body, the gut refers to the gastrointestinal system (large intestines, small intestines, etc.) that contains millions of bacteria which are collectively known as the gut microbiome. The gut microbiome is instrumental in human health, being shown to enhance immune responses, help digestion, and even recent research is exploring the connection between the gut and the nervous system. Recently, conflicting scientific research on whether certain artificial sweeteners create a “leaky” gut is being hotly debated.

Project Biotech's Nutritional Superfoods contain probiotics that give your gut good bacteria, helping you to live healthier and achieve your health and fitness goals. Click here to learn more.


The biggest and most complicated joint in the body, the knee allows many bones in the leg to interact, allowing for coordinated movements like running and walking while also supporting the human body to stand upright. Our knees have many different functions, from stabilizing the body to allow our legs to twist or even to absorb the impact and stress that occurs when moving. Biomechanically, the knee is a crucial and underappreciated part of the body.


The kidneys, true biochemical marvels, play a vital role in balancing the body's pH levels. They act as efficient regulators, tirelessly adjusting the acid-base balance by removing excess acids or bases through urine. This remarkable process, known as renal regulation, ensures the body's pH remains within a narrow, life-sustaining range. Thanks to the kidneys' expert pH-balancing prowess, our internal environment remains stable, allowing essential bodily functions to thrive harmoniously.


The eye is the organ responsible for sight, and is a lot more complex than we think. Did you know that eyes are made of more than 2 million pieces all working together with about 107 million cells? Or did you know that the eye is actually the fastest muscle in the human body?

Foot Arch

Arches are an important part of the foot, as they work to absorb tension and shock produced from movement. Arches in the foot are also flexible, and allow for the normal biomechanical method of walking and running. Foot arches also play a role in proprioception, which is a spatial awareness of where parts of the body are and how they are moving. Project Biotech's orthotics can help to build strength and correct arch structure. Click here to learn more.


The brain is the command center of the nervous system and human body and is widely considered to be the most important organ in the human body with its cognitive functions. Some research has shown that adaptogens, which are herbs like astragalus and suma, lead to less stress and higher cognitive performance in the brain while also delaying deterioration of brain function.

Project Biotech's Nutritional Superfoods contain adaptogens that help you to feel less stressed and perform better. Click here to explore our Superfoods.


The foot is a surprisingly complex part of the human body, consisting of 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 ligaments, tendons, and muscles that move and interact to allow us to walk. However, the delicate complexity of our feet can be ruined by hard surfaces that unevenly distribute pressure on our feet in places like our heels, leading to conditions such as plantar fasciitis.

Our orthotics help solve this issue by distributing pressure evenly across your foot, providing your feet strong support and unique stimulation through an innovative patent-pending mesh. Click here to learn more.


The heel contains the largest bone in the foot. It has many biomechanical roles, including connecting to the ankle and calf through the achilles tendon and through its involvement in the heel strike (when the heel hits the ground) and heel lift (when the heel comes off the ground) phases of the typical walking cycle.

Uneven pressure on the heel can cause numerous problems like plantar fasciitis. Project Biotech's orthotics provide support for the heel and distribute pressure evenly, providing relief and remedy from these conditions. Click here to learn more.


Like the heart, the lungs are also vital to the function of the human body and are also a major player in the cardiovascular system. In fact, the lungs take in 11,000 liters (about 2900 gallons) of air per day.

Project Biotech's Superfoods contain antioxidants and vitamin E, both of which are proven through research to help the cardiovascular system to recover quicker and more effectively after exercise. Click here to learn more about our Superfoods.


The body has an amazing sense of position and movement. The sole of your foot is a key player in this sense, housing nerves and proprioceptors that help you stay balanced, coordinated, and aware of your body's position. Proprioception, often described as the "sixth sense," is the remarkable ability that allows your body to know where it is in space and how it's moving, even without relying on your eyes. For individuals facing medical conditions like neuropathy, proprioception becomes an even more crucial ally. Neuropathy can impair the sensory nerves responsible for transmitting proprioceptive signals, leading to challenges in balance and coordination.
