2-3 teaspoons organic ghee or coconut oil or grass-fed organic butter

1-2 teaspoons Longevity Power Maca Bliss (powerful, creamy, libido-boosting adaptogen!)

2 pinches KAL stevia extract powder, or more to taste or 1 tablespoon wholesome sweetener of choice, to taste

2 pinches sea salt

OPTIONAL: For a little more protein and satiation, add 2-3 teaspoons Longevity Power Longevity Spirulina (it’ll be green, but I know you’ll love it!) or your favorite protein powder or athlete’s amino acid blend

OPTIONAL: For healthful-chocolate satisfaction, add 2-3 teaspoon raw organic cacao powder

OPTIONAL: 2 pinches organic cinnamon and/or ground vanilla bean

OPTIONAL: 2-3 teaspoons instant coffee replacement powder, like Dandyblend

Serve in a mug or take with you in a mason jar! Let your friends try it – 1 sip is all it takes to enlighten someone’s body for the whole morning!

Depleted, moody and aging? Nature has your back! Get ready to learn the top 5 health-revolutionizing reasons to take He Shou Wu!

He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) is a root that has been used for at least 1400 years in Asia, is one of the most famous herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Tonic Herbalism, and is revered for its anti-aging and longevity promoting benefits.

He Shou Wu Plant Drawing

He What Who? How do you pronounce this sacred herb? Don’t worry if your tongue slipped, there is no one right way to pronounce it – it depends on your dialect and accent. An approximately pronounced ‘Huh Show Woo‘ will work just finely. Now say that 5 times fast! All silliness aside, the best way to study and memorize the effects (and the names) of herbs is to take them. Being a gastronaut is an educational process.


He Shou Wu is similarly as heart-healthy and massively rejuvenating as red wine’s resveratrol, only STRONGER!

Its main active constituents are its stilbene glycosides. Many of these stilbenes are more powerful antioxidants than resveratrol. Protect and repair the body from free radical damage and restore the sense of youth that is your birthright.


It’s commonly known in Asia as the herb to take for naturally reversing gray hair and restoring hair color.

There is no one exact reason why many people report these benefits – He Shou Wu has many nutrients and overall effects that lead to healthier hair follicles, including its trace mineral content (zinc, iron, and many others), ability to help restore the adrenals, rich antioxidant content, and stress reducing capacity.

#3. DNA PROTECTION!healthy world

Not only does He Shou Wu contain potent antioxidants, it is also an antioxidant-potentiator.

SOD (superoxide dismutase) is an antioxidant enzyme that blocks your cells and your DNA from mutagenic damage from oxygen, free radicals and radioactive isotopes – all common and pervasive oxidants to which we are each exposed. He Shou Wu has been shown to have SOD-generating capacity. Want a healthy mind and a long living body (I mean looooooooooong living body!), then nourish your body’s ability to circulate SOD. 

#2. BLISS!

He Shou Wu is nature’s ecstasy.

He Shou Wu contains MAO-Is (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) – specifically inhibitors of MAO-B. MAO-B is a naturally occurring enzyme in your body that breaks down neurotransmitters like dopamine (good mood and energy) and phenethylamines (the ‘love chemicals’). Since we tend to come from a background of not having quite enough of these happy neurotransmitters, our body may be breaking these essential chemicals down too much for our own good and sustainable energy and happiness. Taking He Shou Wu is an effective strategy at perfecting the way our brain and nervous system (and our experience of reality) work. MAOI’s occur in other plants like chocolate, but He Shou Wu is considered the most powerful MAO-B inhibitor that is safe and effective for daily use.

He Shou Wu is also a potent sexual health restoring substance and makes the perfect bliss-inducing aphrodisiac for both men and women.


He Shou Wu is a true adaptogen. It is uplifting yet calming to both body and mind.

He Shou Wu is neither a stimulant nor a suppressant, but rather it gives your body the restorative energy it needs to combat stress. You feel it right away but it also works on you cumulatively over time. It’s a beautiful experience to take an herb like He Shou Wu and feel gently uplifted in the body and calm and clear in the mind. This makes He Shou Wu perfect in the morning, perfect in the evening, perfect any time! In Chinese Medicine it is considered a tonic to ‘Yin Jing’ and ‘Blood’ which makes it suitable for just about everybody as a reliable way of stabilizing and thoroughly nourishing the body near daily.



All the effects listed above only apply to well-extracted prepared He Shou Wu.

Raw (unprepared) He Shou Wu is not a true tonic and is considered a laxative and mildly toxic. It has its place in tonic herbalism – usually in small amounts in certain herbal formulas. Be aware of sellers of He Shou Wu who are selling raw He Shou Wu as a tonic – they may not know any better. Here at Longevity Power we only use Prepared He Shou Wu in our formulas.

He Shou Wu Patio 01Prepared He Shou Wu is prepared by being stewed with black beans (or sometimes yams) at a ratio of about 9 parts He Shou Wu roots and 1 part black beans. Be aware of sellers who may be using genetically modified (GMO) soy beans. Here at Longevity Power we only use NON-GMO black soybeans to prepare our He Shou Wu.

He Shou Wu must be well-extracted. Pouring hot water over roots and briefly steeping does not work (this only works with delicate leafy plants like green tea or gynostemma). Prepared He Shou Wu must be decocted in hot water for hours to unlock the active nutrients from the fiber of the root and dissolve them into the water. Here at Longevity Power we take things to a whole new level and decoct using pressure reiteration to further break open the roots’ cell structure and dissolve the active nutrients into sub-boiling (<90*C – better for preserving heat-sensitive nutrients) pure water. We take this water extract and dehydrate it into a malty-tasting water-soluble brown powder. It takes about 16 pound of dried Prepared He Shou Wu roots to make 1 pound of our dried extract. Our Prepared He Shou Wu Extract Powder is standardized to contain at least 8% stilbene glycosides (the resveratrol-like antioxidants described in reason #5 above).

I hope this article brings you clarity and upliftment on your path of health. Please consider taking He Shou Wu as your next healing strategy – add it to your very important life.

Peanut butter + raw chocolate + medjool dates (caramel) + Maca Bliss. You may need nothing else for the rest of the day! This is a raw dessert recipe that could trigger a slight addiction, but because it’s so balanced with our adrenal-restoring Maca Bliss, you’ll be just fine. You may be blissed out, but there will be no negative consequences… let’s get right to it, shall we?


1 cup gluten-free organic oats
1/2+ cup pitted organic medjool dates, more as needed
1 tablespoon pure organic maple syrup
1/2 cup heirloom organic raw chocolate chips
2 tablespoons Longevity Power’s Maca Bliss
2 tablespoons organic raisins
1 tablespoon organic peanut butter (roasted or wild jungle peanut butter)
1 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Process the oats into a flour in your food processor (approx 20 seconds). Add the dates as the processor is running thru the top lid feed & pulse until it begins to stick together. Add all other ingredients except some of the chocolate chips and process again. Do not over process. Add the rest of the chocolate chips at the very end for a crunchy texture!

Scoop the decadent mixture with your hands and pack lightly into your molds of choice OR just mold by hand. Then, chill in the freezer for 1 hour or longer. You may also mold the mix in a cake pan or pie dish & cut into some fun shapes for some visual variety. Gather with friends to enjoy, share your gratitude & dig in! Store your bars / cookies in the fridge or freezer.


The combination of delicious ingredients in the recipe work really well together and will satisfy those that crave dense bites of nutrition and that have a sweet tooth that begs for dessert! Feel free to use a different nut butter if desired and your preferred liquid sweetener.

Thanks guys! Hope you enjoy this recipe – if you do, please share it with your superfood-lovin’ friends!

You want to balance your hormones naturally and stabilize your moods so you have less ups and downs. You’d even like to rev up your libido, crank up the stamina so it’s easy to get through a long day, and enhance athletic performance with greater endurance so you can slim down, tone up, and look your best! You want harmony in your body and not have to take a bunch of pills or spend a ton of time in the kitchen prepping meals to make that happen.

Sound like you? You’re going to adore this smoothie that also happens to pack a high anti-oxidant punch. If you want to know a few key foods that help you bring balance to your hormones (and energy) naturally, this is for you. It’s going to make you feel really good if you resonate with fresh organic fruits + nutrient-rich superfoods, and it will only take a few minutes to make!


* Use all organic ingredients

1 cup fresh living spring water
2 large frozen bananas
1 cup frozen blackberries
1+ tablespoon raw chocolate powder
1 teaspoon Maca Bliss (black maca root extract*)
1 teaspoon Immortality Alchemy’s Bee Mana (organic raw royal jelly)
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
3 medjool dates, pitted

Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until it’s suuuuuuper smooth. Pour into a glass where you’ll be able to see the smoothie’s beauty and sprinkle this fuchsia colored delight with fresh local bee pollen for a burst of B VITAMINS + some heirloom organic raw vegan chocolate chips for a natural magnesium boost!

If you don’t want to use dates, I’d suggest using organic raw coconut water as the liquid base to make up for the sweetness the dates provide.

For your own sake, please do not use tap water in this or any recipe. It’s not a clean pure source of water and will not give you the next level health benefits you deeply desire!

* This smoothie will *not* taste nearly as yummy if you replace the most delicious Maca Bliss with some store-bought gritty raw maca powder. That stuff is unpalatable and will not deliver the profound results that this adrenal and kidney-restoring black maca root extract will. You want the creamy, slightly sweet, caramel-like maca that is also delicious straight by the spoonful! When you have an option of mediocre or the stellar, always go with the best! And that my friends is our MACA BLISS.

We’re bringing some harmony to your hormones, adrenals, nervous and immune systems with this one. The Maca Bliss and organic raw royal jelly are THE master endocrine supporters in this recipe. They are the superstars that make all the difference in how you feel, and are best used on a regular basis so your results just keep getting better & better. I find that 1 teaspoon per day of each suits me well (petite female), though big strong men may want to double up on the dosage. The maca and royal jelly were specifically chosen because they are high in phyto-androgens (what we need more of) as opposed to soy-based estrogen foods (what we don’t need more of) which really throw your hormones off balance.

Like this recipe? This is the kind of delish cuisine I’ll be serving at my upcoming Costa Rica retreat on April 20-26, 2014! If you want to take a healthy vacation in 1 of the most glorious and stunning places in the world with an abundance of island-grown organic produce, and enjoy group activities with other like-minded new friends (Pilates + yoga classes, romps on the beach, superfood demos) – you’ll want to REGISTER ASAP! I can guarantee it will be a magical experience for us all. Live gatherings like health & fitness retreats is where the greatest life-enhancing changes become possible in the shortest amount of time.

Thanks for reading guys! Highest vibes to you,

In this article, not only will you discover the world’s greatest 2 immune strengthening herbs, but you’ll find what they contain: an immensely important category of nutrients that governments don’t mention in their Recommended Dietary Allowance.

We often think of our body as this unit which needs certain minimums of macronutrients and micronutrients.

But, it is a whole unit made up of interconnected parts: each part thrives on an array of notable nutrients.

I’m a white blood cell, hear me roar… or peep?

It’s strange: Many of these body parts and systems are just not talked about with regard to our daily diet. Each system of your body has spent a lifetime malnourished (sorry but it’s true – continue reading and we can change this quickly!) due to the modern westernized diet which lacks variety, trace minerals, medicinal substances, and is loaded with toxins.

Let’s get right up close to the most important system in your body today: your IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Some might say it’s tied in 1st place with your endocrine (hormones) system.

This complex army needs to be fed daily to fulfill its lifelong double-sided challenge:



1. How to neutralize pathogens: because to not means the body is in a Hypo-Immunological state, susceptible to colds, flues, candida overgrowth and more severe disease-causing pathogens.


2. How to efficiently rid the body of (while remaining “cool”) toxins and allergens: because to not means the body is in a HYPER-immune state, causing inflammation and autoimmune takeover.


Every moment your body has a new micro-terrain of pathogens, allergens, and toxins to deal with, so your immune system must be able to fulfill both ends of the spectrum (Do: attack foreign invaders; Do not attack human self) without going out of balance (hypo and hyper).

Great, we’ll just take some immune-stimulating drugs and some immune-suppressants, and we’ll be balanced, right? NO! Thank goddess nature found a way: We must consume natural substances which have a DOUBLE-DIRECTIONAL effect on the immune system. Did you feed your immune system today?

Chaga mushroom growing on a birch tree ready to harvest


ENTER: Medicinal mushrooms and adaptogenic herbs – most notable the top dogs of the fungi kingdom Reishi mushroom and Chaga mushroom. Hundreds upon hundreds of scientific studies, thousands of years and millions of people’s multi-generational use has placed these 2 mushrooms as the most successful immune system enhancements of humanity.
Should everyone be consuming Reishi and Chaga everyday for a robust immune system, long life, mental calm and clarity, and peak physical performance? Read on to decide for yourself.


There is a category of nutrients that is NOT represented in a government’s Recommended Dietary Allowance: the polysaccharides.

Polysaccharides (multi-carbohydrate) aren’t just fiber - many of these “essential healing sugars” have complex structures that fit into the receptor sites of your immune system and train the immune system to do a better job. Countless studies have demonstrated that polysaccharides and herb extracts and superfood extracts high in polysaccharides promote a revitalizing amount of immune system support to humans and animals, help fight off mutagens and disease, and promote a healthy homeostasis within the body.

Reishi mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms (Reishi, Chaga, Turkey-Tail, Cordyceps, Royal Sun Agaricus, Shiitake, Lion’s Mane, Maitake, etc.) are the quintessential source of polysaccharides. Reishi and Chaga are considered the world’s greatest mushrooms. Therefore, anyone interested  in the immunological and revitalizing benefits of polysaccharides should go to extracts of these two mushrooms first and consume them every day.

What really makes these herbs over the top is that they are truly tonics: you can take them daily with no negative side effects. They work immediately and cumulatively over a lifetime.

Reishi is the Queen of mushrooms and Chaga is King.

Both are considered the mushrooms of immortality within the legend and lore of Traditional Chinese Medicine, specifically Taoist Tonic Herbalism.

Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), after inoculating a tree or medium of dead plant matter with its mycelial growth, produces a beautiful shiny red fruitbody. The fruitbody (literally the fungi’s reproductive organ) and the spores it secretes are LOADED with polysaccharides and rare myco-chemicals that feed the immune system.

The subjective effect of reishi is particularly calming while deeply energizing. That isn’t an oxymoronic statement. The best foods and herbs in the world should make you feel that way: deeply energized (without feeling stimulated), mentally nourished and relaxed.

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) prefers to inoculate living trees, usually birch, in a mostly symbiotic (arguably not parasitic or decomposing) relationship. Chaga is rich in polysaccharides and has countless Russian scientific studies to back its effects. Chaga is darkly pigmented with an ORAC (antioxidant scale) off the charts. It is perhaps the highest antioxidant herb ever.

Both mushrooms are polypores, a variety of mushrooms which have tiny holes (or poly-pores) on their underside (instead of gills) which secrete spores. Within the herb-loving and myco-phile world, polypores are considered very evolved and intelligent mushrooms (compared to mildews and yeasts).




They don’t feed Candida overgrowth – unlike the fallacies you’ve heard.

In order for a mushroom to survive in the wild and claim a tree for itself, it must have anti-fungal properties to compete with the other fungi. A pure extract of Reishi and Chaga has nothing in it to feed candida overgrowth or other fungal infections – it can only fend off such overgrowths in the body.


It’s ideal for just about everyone to consume Reishi and Chaga everyday for a robust immune system, long life, mental calm and clarity, and peak physical performance.

Speaking of such benefits, I’d like to share with you my top 2 sources for these top 2 immune strengthening medicinal mushrooms.

You see, I’ve dedicated my life to this area of study. I search the world to find only the best of the best, elite-quality, and most potent healing substances possible. Herbs for connoisseurs made by connoisseurs. In the past 10 years, I’ve tried countless Reishi and Chaga products – and let me tell you – most of them are made cheaply and are not very potent! However, I know for certain that I now have the absolute best: Medicinal mushroom extracts that meet and exceed the specifications that all the medicinal research and scientific studies use.


I’ve carefully chosen powerful doses of my signature…

Freeze-dried wilderness-sourced low-temperature high-superoxid-dismutase (SOD) Chaga freeze-dried extract!

These are the heavy hitters. But I take the application strategy of these extracts to an even greater level. I synergies them with other same-high-quality medicinal mushroom and tonic herb extracts in my 2 favorite immunity products:

Drink with Food


Growing up, I would usually drink 2 glasses of water or soda with every large meal.

Then for many years I listened to a lot of the diet dogma that says don’t drink anything with food EVER or else you’ll dilute your stomach acid, your enzymes and your soul itself! But is that true?

What are the most optimal choices for drinking liquids with your solids?

It’s a question that comes up on our path to greater health and our journey to perfect our digestion (and thus improve our immune system, energy levels and utilization of essential nutrients).

I’ve discovered that there is a middle way that works for my body, and according to much science and testimonial, this homemade elixir 4-point formula works for many health-driven people like you too. And it’s absolutely fun, mood-lifting, digestion-boosting, food-assimilation-enhancing, hydrating, soda-like beverage you may gulp guilt-free with lunch, dinner and snacks.

If you  don’t crave liquid when eating (I usually don’t), you may drink this simple concoction before or after your meal.

If you have sensitive digestion, the following may be crucial to your continued healing. If your digestion is already strong and regular, consider this rocket fuel to go that much farther with your state of health.

Here’s the 4-point formula for a digestion-aiding elixir imbibed with a meal.

Try to have at least 2 out of 4 of these qualities when creating your elixir (the absolute best ever recipe version of this follows.)

1. Contains some acidity: Not acid-forming, but simply acidic (a.k.a. slightly sour). May contain lemon/lime juice, vitamin C rich berries, natural carbonation which is gently acidic, or lactic acid (in fermented beverages). This makes your drink agreeable to your stomach environment.

2. Contains some unrefined sea salt: Sodium chloride (salt) goes great with hydrochloric acid (stomach acid). Many cases of low stomach acid are related to a salt deficiency or an imbalance of electrolytes which may be corrected with more slightly salty pure water in elixir form.


3. Contains digestion and assimilation boosting herbs or spices. From ginger to goji berry, there are substances that taste amazing and stimulate healthy digestion and nutrient absorption in your GI tract.

4. Low to no sugar or is fermented. A sugary or fruit drink will tend to create a bad fermentation bloating bomb. Best to consume stevia-sweetened elixirs or probiotic-rich fermented drinks (water kefirs, kombucha, etc. in which the sugar has been converted by the beneficial bacteria into lactic acid and nutrients).

Tonic ‘Roy Rogers’ Cocktail

When I was a kid I would always order a ‘Shirley Temple’ (lemon-lime soda or ginger ale mixed with grenadine syrup) or a ‘Roy Rogers’ (cola mixed with grenadine) when dining out with my folks. I survived the sugar load! However, in appreciation for non-alcoholic cocktail nostalgia, I present to you the most bliss-inducing, digestion and nutrient assimilation enhancing beverage – perfect for you, family, friends, and kids 8 to 108+!


Blend on medium for 20 seconds in a blender:

5 cups spring water

1 tablespoon Longevity Power Goji Joy (goji synergies the efficacy of food and herbs and enhances their assimilation in the digestive system)

1 tablespoon Longevity Power He Shou Wu Extract (mood-elevating, richly mineralizing, extremely high antioxidant cola-like flavor) or LEVITY (bliss-inducing butterscotch flavor)

Juice of 1 organic lime

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon KAL Stevia Extract powder, or more to taste


Likey the alcohol? Give this drink a few squirts of your favorite tonic herb tincture. ;-)

Desire probiotics and fizz? Replace half the spring water with fresh coconut water kefir

For more digestion boosting: 1/4 teaspoon freshly micro-planed organic finer


Pour into glasses with a few ice cubes. Serve with a glass or plastic-free straw. Love your food. Love your drink. Love yourself. Happy belly! Cheers!

This is my favorite snack/meal replacement/dessert this chilly winter: My quick and easy Peppermint Swirl Fudge! Satisfy your hunger, sweet tooth and cravings for holiday treats without compromising your health and in fact holistically boosting your health, strengthening your immune system, revitalizing your cells and maximizing your energy!


Peppermint Fudge Recipe


5-Minute Never-Stress Peppermint Swirl Fudge Recipe


You’ll need whole ground coconut butter (not the oil). This is available in many natural food stores but you can make your own on the fly using organic coconut dried shreds. Place about 3 cups of coconut shreds into your blender and using your tamper to keep the coconut vortexing into the blades, blend on high for 2-5 minutes until warm and quite creamy.  This is the nut butter of coconut. It’s liquid above about 80*F and hard as chocolate below 70*F. Store extra in wide-mouth jar or lidded-bowl in a dark area, not in refrigerator.


Feel free to double, triple, or 4X this recipe!


Blend on high in a blender or small food processor for 1 minute:


3/4 cup warm (so it’s liquid) organic whole ground coconut butter (see instructions above)

1/4 cup pasture-raised organic ghee (recommended for most fudge flavor) or melted organic cacao butter (2ndly recommended for awesome white chocolate flavor) or organic coconut oil (great but will produce a more coconut flavored fudge) or mix of all 3 oils

2 tablespoons wood-derived xylitol or wholesome sweetener that works for your body

1/2 teaspoon Longevity Power Longevity in a Bottle

1/16 KAL stevia extract powder, to taste

1 pinch sea salt

2 drops of organic peppermint essential oil


Pour 2/3rds of this batter into mold shapes of choice (such as ice cube trays or a large pie dish). Then add to remaining 1/3rd in blender:


2 teaspoons wood-derived xylitol or wholesome sweetener that works for your body

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Longevity Spirulina

10 drops of organic peppermint essential oil

OPTIONAL: 1/2 teaspoon Longevity Power Mushroom Immunity

OPTIONAL: You can thicken this fudge into a cookie consistency by adding 2 teaspoons BPA-free organic coconut milk


Pour or spoon this into your molds to create a white-blue-green swirl in your fudge. OPTIONAL: Top with Raw Chocolate Chips. Place into freezer (or just outside for northern climate winter wonderland enthusiasts) for at least 5 minutes. Pop out, serve chilled, feel the ecstasy! Store in fridge or chilly room.


These make the perfect stocking stuffer gifts, snack time for adults and the kids, or as an ingredient in super healthy ice cream concoctions.


To your greatest version of yourself!
