We consider ourselves lucky to be living in the 21st century where almost anything is possible. But life isn’t always a fairytale, and achieving success can often be demanding and requires a ton of hard work. At times when we expect more of ourselves it’s easy to start feeling overwhelmed, anxious or even depressed, which can ultimately result in us giving up on our goals and thinking we’re not good enough.
THEENK was born out of true love for nature and all it has to offer. Here we believe that YOU are good enough and that YOU can achieve every goal you have set for yourself. Consider THEENK your new best friend who will help you awaken your brain so that you can become your best self.
You can meet that next deadline, pass that tough exam, and get through that stressful time! We’ve been there and done that ourselves, and don’t worry – we will be with you every step of the way.
We don't have one story that tells it all. Instead, there were various paths that all led us to THEENK. When our founder was 18 she suffered from depression as many young people do. After being prescribed antidepressants and eventually getting better she realized something- whatever happens, she never wanted to take that kind of drugs ever again. She hated the way they made her feel and the long-term side effects were not very nice. It was a long time before creating THEENK however a little seed was planted in her brain at that time. With a curious mind and an interest in natural medicine, she started researching alternative ways of treating depression and anxiety which was the start of the journey.
While at uni Karolina realized that many of her peers overwhelmed with the amount of work and stress, tend to help themselves with "smart drugs". The research shows that 1 in 5 University students in the UK tried "smart drugs" at least once*. It's still quite a new problem and not much help and education is offered on the matter. The real world wasn't much different and in a fast-paced environment stimulants and smart drugs are being used on a daily basis by those needing to do more than ever to succeed.
There were many people over the years who told me or made me feel like I'm not good enough. I wanted to create a product that not only helps people take care of their mental wellbeing but which also supports them at reaching their goals respectfully, on their own terms. A product that celebrates who you are instead of trying to change it. THEENK is all about bringing us closer to the nature and discovering our connection with it.
Those substances again have a long-list of side effects and can be very harmful in the long term. That again was another path leading us to THEENK. The idea itself came to life while scrolling through Instagram and seeing yet another ad of a weight-loss tea, claiming to give us the beach bod in 28 days- no work required. That's when our founder thought "enough is enough, this industry needs a change" so the idea of THEENK was born and the rest, as they say, is now history.
All the past experiences both good and bad were used in creating THEENK and making it what it is today. We want to think that it was a breath of fresh air into the teatox market. Something to take care of our stressed-out minds and not the way we look. A product that makes you feel good about yourself instead of putting you down. We're giving you the goodness of nature and all the tools you need to succeed. No BS.

CEO & Founder
I've always felt a special connection to nature. I grew up spending a lot of time outdoors and I loved discovering all the good things it's got to offer. As we get older and live our busy lives we tend to forget about that, and that's why I love THEENK. It brings out the best out of nature and lets us share it with others.
