How to Revolutionize Green Juice

Fresh green juice is good, but not great, and you deserve exceptional. I present my case:

Green juice = vegetables. Vegetables = mostly plants that have been bred over millennia to be mild edibles, no longer strong medicines of the wild. So my question for you is: How much are you really getting out of your green juice?

My contention is that green juices can kick start someone’s system when they first begin a holistic healing lifestyle, but in the long run give diminishing returns in health benefits.

Shortly after I first began my health journey 15 years ago, I got very much into green juice. I would make and drink 2 quarts a day. It felt great… at first. Within a year I hit a wall and generous servings of green juice no longer made me feel good. They made me feel just too alkaline instead of nourished.

In desiring to keep the alkaline-forming portion of my diet as expanded as possible I eventually found my way to tonic herbs and certain nutrient dense wild foods and superfoods that helped me feel great all the time. I bypassed green juice.

If you feel like it would be beneficial to upgrade your green juice ritual or to start one that gives you maximum results with the least effort – and skip the kitchen clean up  that follows all juicing too – I cordially invite you to make our Instant Dark-Green “Juice” with Benefits. It’s a refreshing and delicious elixir using our Revival Formula, which doesn’t contain the same old cucumber, grass or kale, but instead a premium blend of 6 algae and 18 tonic herbs, superfoods and medicinal mushrooms. It is a true nutraceutical tonic, not just a weak vegetable hit.

Our Dark-Green “Juice” Elixir = algae + tonic herbs + medicinal mushrooms + superfood extracts + wild foods + medicinal vegetable extracts + pure water

It’s lower carb than green juice, ketogenic friendly, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, paleo-friendly and excellent for those with candida or an aversion to wheat grass and kale over consumption. 😉

The algae in it provide more chlorophyl than any typical green juice, as well as nutrients that vegetables are low in like immune system strengthening polysaccharides and long chain omega-3 fatty acids. This formula is designed to nourish your brain and help you kick butt all day long.**

The Instant Dark-Green “Juice” Elixir Recipe

Blend on high in any blender for 10 seconds:

3/4 cup spring water

1/3 cup ice cubes

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Revival Formula

1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract OR the fresh juice of half of an organic lemon

1/8 teaspoon, to taste, stevia extract powder (I love NOW Better Stevia)

1/16 teaspoon sea salt

Pour into a glass and self nourish (and share)!

  

Of course, if you are really digging fresh green juice these days, more power to you! I suggest upgrading/revolutionizing your green juice by stirring a teaspoon of Revival Formula into it so that your body and brain can receive even more health benefits.

To your greatest health!

-Christian

Vanilla Mushroom Immunity & Clarity Elixir Recipe

I am really into this easy to whip up drink right now. I mean really into it. It’s so delicious, body nourishing and brain boosting – mmmmm I just keep wanting more! I feel so alive and so connected when I drink it. I often make extra, throw it in a mason jar, and use the elixir to hydrate with throughout the day.

It’s sugar free, nearly zero carb, ketogenic friendly, gluten free, dairy free and excellent for those with candida (the medicinal mushrooms are naturally anti-fungal – they don’t feed candida and they can help your immune system annihilate candida overgrowth!)**

The ingredients are just so perfect this time of year too – autumn. The medicinal mushrooms – some of which are seasonal in the wild soon – are powerful adaptogens that strengthen the immune system – perfect to help prevent colds in the cold season. The mushrooms’ coffee-like flavor and the organic vanilla are such cheerful fall tastes and aromas. Many of these fungal allies are powerful nerve tonics for mental clarity, concentration and building resilience to stress. There are a whopping 35 medicinal mushroom extracts and concentrates in our formula – mushrooms like reishi, chaga and cordyceps!

I often rely on Mushroom Immunity for endurance at the gym. Because it is a very well rounded adaptogen, it makes me want to go harder for much much longer. And the fact that I can have it in such a delicious form makes me only the more excited to be proactive with my health.

Medicinal mushrooms are often considered the universal herbal tonic: They are excellent for both those who feel healthy and want to perform and feel better, and for those with issues in their tissues or other conditions where other tonic herbs might be contraindicated. Medicinal mushrooms are excellent for those who caught a cold, are pregnant or breastfeeding, and for children too.** Medicinal mushrooms – starting with very small dosages and gradually building up – are known as one of the best ways those with a compromised immune system can naturally build it up.**

Vanilla Mushroom Immunity & Clarity Elixir

Blend on high in any blender for 10 seconds:

3/4 cup spring water

1/3 cup ice cubes

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Mushroom Immunity

1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon, to taste, stevia extract powder (I love NOW Better Stevia)

1/16 teaspoon sea salt

Optional: 1/8-1/4 teaspoon, to taste, Longevity Power Epic Reishi for a ‘dark roast’ flavored kick and an extra strong mental clarity boost.

Pour into a glass and imbibe in the good-for-you-ness!

I love ice cold drinks, but if you love hot drinks just replace the spring water and ice cubes with very warm water. Hot water does not damage the medicinal mushrooms as most of them are hot water extracts. Enjoy!

 

To your greatest health!

My Lifestyle Stack for Lifting Out of a Deep Funk

I just got a question about how I battled depression** when I was a teen, “Wondered what you found most effective in lifting you out of that?”

There are many habits added together that helped mold by body and my mind into the person I am today**: 
Boosting nutrition tremendously, especially brain supporting and hormone supporting nutrition**
Eating an allergen free diet**
Eating plenty of high quality fats (instead of low quality carbs)**
Constant focus on nourishing gut flora (digestive system = second brain)**
Regularly implementing strategies to remove viral load, mold, heavy metals and other toxins from my body**
Living passionately in a way that feels free and mission driven**
Making an impact on people that makes a real difference in their lives
Balancing hormones naturally**
Weight training, yoga and chiropractic**
Lots of tonic herbs for adrenal and brain support**
Being drug, alcohol and sugar free
Reducing exposure to plastics, synthetic fibers and air pollutants**
Being grounded (Earthing), getting lots of sun and lots of cold showers**
Being willing to both ‘reprogram my thinking’ (assertively embracing desire) but also ‘being with thoughts and letting them go’ (being Zen about desire)
Speaking to myself and others with words that are somehow both radically honest AND positively self esteem and success oriented.
Each one of these habits doesn’t do that much by itself for me. But combined has been key for changing the way my mind works.**
To your healthiest mind possible!
~Christian Bates

 

**Disclaimer: I did not have a case of clinical depression, though I felt depressed. If you have been diagnosed with a type of clinical depression, please note that this is not medical or psychiatric advice, but my own experience.

The Ice Cream That Gets You High

This heavenly rich and malty flavored ice cream doesn’t contain cannabis or THC, but it does contain an herb that around these parts we call Glow and is renowned for its anti-aging and gray hair reversing effects, among many other benefits.**

Glow (aliases: He Shou Wu, Fo-Ti, and Polygonum multiflorum) is an herb that is often put in first place (out of thousands of other herbs) by tonic herbalists as the most health transforming and nutrient dense tonic bang for your buck in Chinese Medicine. I was first introduced to it one night ten years ago by a well known nutrition teacher who emptied out several capsules of He Shou Wu into his raw ice cream from Cafe Gratitude. He got very blissed out yet was looking deeply calm, rejuvenated and sharp. His state of consciousness was sustainably enhanced. I was so envious because I didn’t get any of that ice cream and I wanted those benefits for myself in the form of an extra blissful and guiltless frozen dessert experience!

The Ice Cream That Gets You HighThat evening planted a seed in me to, after many years, launch my own extra powerful, consciously sourced, tasty and UNencapsulated He Shou Wu extract, now called GLOW.

Also in the time since, I’ve created about 500 ‘alternative’ (my body doesn’t like cream and sugar) ice cream recipes. Most of these contained heroic doses of tonic herbs: Frozen dessert nutrition therapy at its finest!

Today I present an ice cream with the hero’s dose of Glow He Shou Wu to get the eater high, motivated, euphoric, mentally and physically enhanced, youthenned, self reflective, socially lubricated yet crystal clear. Unlike most of my recipes, this is not a recipe for everyday use (unless you ease back the He Shou Wu dosage). In fact, if you eat this whole recipe (which I recommend you do slowly) don’t plan on driving or operating heavy machinery for a couple hours. Why? All good reasons. Don’t worry, this recipe makes the mind sharp as a tack and makes one fully physically and mentally functional with a smaller dose, but in a larger dose it can make dopamine levels extra high which can sometimes make driving a car overwhelming for such a happy brain.**

He Shou Wu is an MAO-B inhibitor, which naturally inhibits the body’s own rate of dopamine breakdown thus allowing dopamine levels to gently rise. An increase in breakdown and lower levels of dopamine and decrease in MAO-B inhibitor levels, typical of people 40 or 50 years of age and older, is associated with mental distress and rising rates of mental imbalance.**

The Ice Cream That Gets You HighThere is no habit forming or addiction associated with He Shou Wu. In fact for those dealing with addiction (drugs, porn, Facebook, gambling, sugar, bread, and other substances and activities that unsustainably reward your brain with dopamine but ultimately cause a tolerance and dopamine crash) He Shou Wu may be helpful in gently biohacking your brain to feel healthy, sharp, motivated, satisfied, stress resilient, nourished, happy, loving and less prone to impulsively engage in addictions.**

In larger doses He Shou Wu is a very mild laxative. If you’re constipated that’s usually great news. If it causes you loose stools, just ease up and stick to a normal dosage which is about 1 teaspoon (this ice cream recipe contains several teaspoons of He Shou Wu).

This recipe has many ingredient options in hopes that you can both more easily gather a minimal set of ingredients (many of them at natural foods stores, many on Amazon) and select which ingredients you think you’d prefer based on existing taste and dietary preferences and sensitivities.

The one ingredient that isn’t optional is the Glow He Shou Wu itself. Glow is a very taste-compliant (it’s slightly bitter by itself but when mixed and sweetened it takes on a pleasant malty nutty flavor – other He Shou Wu extracts tend to be terribly astringent which will ruin the ice cream for your tongue) and potent (it takes 16 pounds of prepared dried he shou wu roots to make just 1 pound of this Glow extract powder which contains about 8% stilbene glycosides – resveratrol-like antioxidants that make He Shou Wu so cell-protective and anti-aging. 8% stilbenes is a truly and significantly biologically active** amount and other He Shou Wu products are either half or a quarter this amount or they just don’t test for it at all and you don’t know what you’re getting.)

 The Ice Cream That Gets You High

Recipe: The Healthful Ice Cream That Gets You High and Glowing!

Blend in blender for 30 seconds:

2 organic pasture-raised egg yolks (no whites) or 1-2 tablespoons of non-GMO lecithin

1/3 cup organic refined coconut oil or ghee or butter or cacao butter

1/3 cup sweet LUV (a sugar free sweetener) or any sweetener of choice (maple sugar, honey, etc.)

1/4 cup protein powder (collagen protein powder, colostrum powder, grass fed whey, plant based protein powders, etc.)

1/4 cup a different from above protein powder (collagen protein powder, colostrum powder, grass fed whey, plant based protein powders, etc.)

1-3 TABLESPOONS Longevity Power GLOW He Shou Wu (Beginner’s, use 1 tablespoon. He Shou Wu experienced, cautiously use more to insure the title of this recipe HIGHly lives up to its name.**)

2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

Just barely 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

3/4 cup warmed spring water

OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup organic cacao/cocoa powder
OPTIONAL: 1 pinch stevia extract, to taste, if using more Glow He Shou Wu

Pour into ice cream maker or pour into bowl and let set in refrigerator for 2 hours, then whisk to aerate and place in freezer for several hours. Eat as much as you’d like, but not all at once if you are new to such heroic doses (I’m serious about this, go easy, be gentle, be kind to your brain and you digestive system). Share with a lover, a friend or family members with whom you’d like to deepen your connection.

The Organic Egg Nog Recipe for Kicking Butt Through New Year's

This is the biohacker’s egg nog. The nog that keeps on kicking. Kicking butt that is, at your health and stress-resilience goals. This is the nog for your noggin (brain health optimization) and your body (nutrition therapy minus the food sensitivities/allergens).** It’s for people that love nog but can’t do cream and sugar, and for folks who don’t usually like egg nog but have a hankering’ for some nutmeg cinnamon spice up in their paleoesque superfood smoothie. This is the ketogenic friendly low carb athlete’s secret December weapon of choice. This is the Rocky fan and herbalist’s milk shake. This recipe is here to help you make a big difference in your health while you’re busy being festive.

Most importantly, this egg nog which is made with real organic egg yolks tastes better than store bought sugary egg nog and is sharable with your friends and family at any occasion while skyrocketing their health and mood. Even your Uncle Joe who loves conventional rum-spiked egg nog can have this (and it might help him avoid a carb-coma this year). 😉

Blend in blender for 30 seconds:

4 organic pasture-raised egg yolks

1/3 cup hydrolyzed collagen protein powder

1/3 cup organic refined coconut oil

1/3 cup sweet LUV (or sweetener of choice)

1/3 cup colostrum powder

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Maca Bliss

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Pearl Extract or GLOW He Shou Wu

1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

1/4 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon organic cinnamon powder (Ceylon cinnamon is best, cassia cinnamon is 2nd best)

2-5 pinches of ground nutmeg (or ever better is zested or chopped small pieces of whole nutmeg), to taste (strong but essential stuff, start with less)

2 pinches sea salt

1/2 cup very warm or hot spring water

Then add and blend for 20 seconds:

2 cups spring water ice cubes

Pour into some classy cups, glasses of mugs, and top with small pinches of organic cinnamon powder, ground vanilla, organic ground nutmeg, organic ground clove, organic cocoa powder and/or colostrum powder.

Optional: Add your favorite tonic tinctures of choice or, if you drink or are serving nog to your social drinking friends and family, offer a shot of rum, brandy, bourbon or other spirit, to taste. Egg nog is traditionally designed to be rich and thick enough to be thinned slightly by alcohol. This recipe is a great way to sneak some health back into your loved ones under the radar, whether they prefer their holiday cheer virgin or spiked.

Optional: For the coffee lovers, you can add coffee or espresso to ‘bullet proof’ this (the ingredients colostrum and coconut oil count as your butter and MCT oil in this case).

To your healthiest of holidays and a new year blessed with fulfilling accomplishments!

Ready to get the ‘download’ on which maca is the best for you? Which is mold-free? Which actually makes you smarter and sexier?** Yes! Thought so. Not only are there multiple colors (or phenotypes) of maca, but there are many preparations of maca too. Not all maca is created equal and some can be quite harmful (moldy maca = moldy body!)

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

The diversity of maca products out there is great enough that on the inferior side of the spectrum (most products) many maca powders barely provide any of the claimed effects and can lead to mold and candida issues. On the superior side of the spectrum maca lives up to its endurance boosting, virility strengthening, cognition supporting and aphrodisiac properties while being perfectly compliant to any food or sugar sensitivities or fungal and immune issues.**

50 Shades of Maca

High in the Andes in Peru in a field of maca, there are 3 primary colors of roots growing amongst each other. Yellow (a.k.a. white or creme) maca is the biggest and most abundant root, but is the least nutrient dense. It provides a lot of benefit because it is still maca, but in many studies it comes in a most definite 3rd place for effect and antioxidant levels. Since it is the cheapest to produce, most maca products are just milled yellow maca.

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Red (a.k.a. purple) maca roots are in the middle in potency, size and abundance. Red is considered the best for men’s prostate, but for nearly all other effects, black maca is considered the best.**

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Black maca is the smallest and rarest (a harvest will be 5% to 30% black maca roots). However, it is only slightly more costly to produce (fewer, smaller, lighter roots). It has been shown to be the best at boosting cognitive function and in females, increasing fertility and in males, increasing sperm count and mobility.** In my experience, black maca tastes way denser and less sweet than yellow, red or a tai-blend of colors. It has the force of jing in it.

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

The Understated Topic of Maca Preparation

Traditionally, maca isn’t eaten raw very often. It is usually cooked, fermented, or even extracted in some way and has been for hundred of years, which increases its potency and digestibility. Why are most maca products just raw milled maca? Because raw is inexpensive and because there is a market for ‘raw foods.’

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Back when I used to fall for the ‘it should be raw’ short sightedness propaganda, I ate my share of raw maca. But today I would never ever recommend anybody eat raw maca. Okay, I might recommend it over eating a plate of gluten or a factory farmed fast food concoction, but because raw maca is sugary, starchy, fibrous, sometimes moldy, and always far less potent (the dosage of raw non-concentrated maca is about 3 tablespoons to receive maca’s full renowned effects – which tastes like 3 tablespoons of radish powder in my humble opinion – and often leads to the toots), I must say it is not great enough to be on your health protocol list. Maca’s active constituents are not heat sensitive – they remain intact at temperatures near 200*F, so raw cold processing is not necessary, and is in fact counter productive. Raw food and herb powders (that haven’t gone through a heat process) from the tropics tend to have a higher microbe contamination and mold risk (don’t play roulette with your health!)

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

The second most popular preparation of maca is gelatinized maca. This is wet-cooked maca. There is also a similar dry roasted maca. The cooking breaks down some of the fiber and starch and makes the maca about twice as concentrated and easier to digest. It is definitely an upgrade from the raw swag (hehe), but for those on a lower carb regimen, or for those who need to kick candida, it is still quite a bit glycemic (blood sugar and insulin spiking) with its starch and sugar content.** So I recommend skipping all the way to the best which is…

Dual extracted maca powder! This is the heavy hitter, a full spectrum extract using warm water and alcohol to concentrate the most active compounds in maca while removing the starchy parts. Water-only extracted maca powder usually has flowing agents in it to keep it from clumping, so 100% pure dual (warm water + ethanol) extract is where it’s at!

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Before I explain what this truly delicious yet extremely potent dual extract preparation is exactly, I’d like to share that ten years ago I began developing the prototypes for the WildBar – the organic superfood meal replacement bar I co-created. During that time is when I started sourcing superfoods from manufactures from all over the world. Some superfoods looked similar on paper but were a world of difference in taste, quality and freshness. Some arrived moldy. It took a year and a half to painstakingly decide on the sources of all the ingredients for the WildBar before we launched, although the sources we used were the clear winners because not only did we develop great connections with the manufactures, they consistently provided fresh product with no off batches.

But even after launch, I strived to upgrade the WildBar over the years whenever possible, and eventually dropped the original premium raw maca ingredient and replaced it with what is now called Maca Bliss.

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Maca Bliss is all about being the best possible maca in every way imaginable. It is made from organically grown black maca only (I considered making it from a mix of black (very best) and red roots (second best), but decided that it should be 100% black maca, only the best). Maca Bliss is not raw…. Not gelatinized… Not just a water extract… It is a 10X dual extract powder and nothing else. It is potency verified during the extraction process to be at least 0.6% (which is high) macamides and machines (the top active compounds that give maca its effects.)**

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

 

The dual extraction, done in a USDA Certified Organic facility Lima, Peru, uses both hot water and non-GMO cane alcohol to extract a full spectrum of water-soluble and lipid-soluble active compounds from the maca. We micro-strain out the bulk of the starches, sugars and fibers while concentrating the most medicinal fractions of black maca. We dehydrate the dark brown liquid we have created during the straining process into a powder (which due to some very nifty properties becomes a more tan color, but will become more black in color when it is rehydrated).

 

I have taken every kind of maca for the past 13 years and Maca Bliss is in a league of its own and the only kind of maca I give to my friends, family and colleagues.

 

1 teaspoon of Maca Bliss is equal to over 3 tablespoons of raw black maca powder (minus the fiber, radish flavor and toots). It melts in your mouth and tastes like a malty, tangy, slightly smokey and ever so lightly nectarous caramel concentrate. It goes in your mouth, in pure water, in a smoothie, on a treat, on ice cream, in a chocolate or dessert recipe to skyrocket energy levels, turn glands, organs and brain into a robust experience of rewilding health.** The energy is clean, very much felt, but not stimulating – the marks of a true adaptogen.**

Maca Bliss is a balanced adaptogen in that it helps the body be resilient amidst stress and allows one’s biology to thrive even during modern stressors like pollution, previous toxic food choices, and sitting around too much.** It may cause you to spontaneously do what your body, heart, sexuality and brilliant mind want to do most which is live an authentic life full of movement and engaging in habits of passion with which the soul feels in alignment. It bumps one closer to the status of sexy genius every time it is taken (oh, behave!)** It has both immediate all day benefits and cumulative long term benefits that keep on giving (what a gift from nature!)

Which Kind of Maca Is Healthiest, and Has No Mold?

Maca Bliss is a warming yang herb/superfood, which makes it a great winter warmer. Pre-workout, pre-work, pre-sex suggested in a post-industrial revolution world. It is equally effective for both men and woman.
