My Top 3 Survival 'Foods' for Peak Health (Video)

If you hang out with nutrition hipsters and supplement snobs like me (I’m kidding… or am I?…) long enough you’ll end up taking part in the game of:

“If you could only take ______ while stranded on an island, what would it be!?”

The blank ______ could be anything health related. ‘1 herb’ or ‘2 kitchen tools’ or in the case of the following fun and insight-giving video, it’s ‘3 consumables.’ Asked and answered by mua (though I’ve been asked this question about twice yearly by many dedicated individuals interested in cracking their code of everlasting vitality & youth (which is also the name of a product I co-created by the way), every year, for the past 12 years and I admittedly have changed my answers many times). So take my top 3 survival consumables** video with a grain of sea salt and a light immortal heart.

 

What 3 essentials would you take to your desolate island to make it paradise?

 

To your greatest health!

Maca Bliss - Longevity Power's New Product with 10 Times the PowerUPDATE: Maca Bliss is now made with 100% Black Maca extract, instead of 30% Black Maca – a seriously potent increase in value at no added cost.

Rev Up Libido… Balance Mood… Boost Endurance… and Enhance Athletic PerformanceSounds great to you and me!**

These are the benefits of Longevity Power’s newest product: Maca Bliss. This powder – bottled in amber glass – is a 10:1 extract of black maca root that tastes like creamy caramel candy but contains almost no sugars and starches found in the whole maca – just the scientifically proven active constituents of maca root, Peru’s famous superfood.

Maca Bliss - Longevity Power's New Product with 10 Times the PowerMost raw or ‘gelatinized’ maca powders are milled whole maca roots. They’re a bit starchy, but they work okay. Maca Bliss is a true extract in which every pound of Maca Bliss is extracted from 10 pounds of whole dry maca. 100% black maca roots are blended in warm water and alcohol to dissolve the water-soluble and alcohol/fat-soluble active constituents. The blend is then strained much like a tea one makes at home (but at a larger scale) to remove the fiber and stach. What’s left is a sweet, creamy blend of the most active consituents.

Ingredients: 100% 10:1 water-alcohol extract of black maca root. Pesticide-free, non-GMO and 100% natural. Serving size: 1 teaspoon (2000 mg)

A word about black maca: In the many animals studies of black, red, and yellow maca, black maca has generally given best results. Black maca has demonstrated to be the best at increasing sperm count and improving latent learning.

Black and very dark pigments are associated with jing in tonic herbalism. Jing is the primal life-force – your rechargable battery pack that determines your state of youth and longevity. My personal experience trying all 3 colors of maca, as well as mixing them, is that black by far gives me the best feeling in my body and I hope you feel the same way to.

Our  black maca roots are grown 12,000 feet above sea level in the Peruvian Andes. We carefully harvest, sundry and clean these sacred superfoods and use our low-heat extraction method that concentrates a full spectrum of glucosinolates, macamides, macaenes, flavonoids and amino acids. Unlike most maca ‘extracts’ which are just boiled down maca roots, we truly remove the fibers and starches leaving just the purest water- and lipid-soluble active compounds.

How to use: Maca Bliss is so good, you may just want to put the straight powder on your tongue and let it dissolve it’s sweet flavor in your mouth. You can put Maca Bliss in your favorite smoothie recipe or homemade chocolate or fudge and it will NOT “throw the flavor.” Whole maca has more of a raddish flavor when used in larger amounts, but Maca Bliss tastes sweet and milky when you up the dosage in your recipes.

Purchase Maca Bliss NOW!

Enjoy your health!

Longevity in a Bottle easily mixes into water, a smoothie, a juice, a soup, and any healthful dessert! It imparts a coffee-like flavor, with chocolatey overtones and a sweet earthy aroma. A sweetener cuts any bitterness very well. When mixed in a larger recipe (like a blender-full of smoothie) then it barely tastes it at all.

Dosage: Start with a half teaspoon 1-3 times a day. Slowly over a month work your way up to the full 2 teaspoon dosage 1-3 times a daily.

From the desk of Christian Bates, formulator of Longevity in a Bottle and founder of Longevity Power Inc.:

Herein describes the ingredients of my new leading-edge nutrition product, Longevity in a Bottle, and why I chose a whopping 40 of them.

Longevity in a BottleLongevity in a Bottle Ingredients Explained is designed to de-stress you, give you long-burning energy, nourish your immune system, revitalize your cells and promote longevity like nothing else you have ever experienced.**
To do this, I’m not going to rely on just one great superfood or one great tonic herb, but rather the many greatest superfoods and herbs from the greatest ancient nutritional systems from around the world.

I have lived the last several years of my life consuming these herbs and superfoods in various forms. I chose to take very potent extracts of my favorite (and historically, the favorite of these top medicinal traditions) and combine them into a balanced and synergistic form safe and recommended for daily use so that you can experience the benefits of these super substances your ancestors spent generations perfecting the use of. Longevity in a Bottle is one culmination of humanity’s ability to share our greatest traditions together (That’s a big part of the American dream)!

Longevity in a Bottle Ingredients Explained

I’ll be using the word “Jing” in the definitions of many of these herbs. In Chinese tonic herbalism, jing is one of the “three treasures” of life energies that govern the vitality of your human experience. Jing is the essence of your physical body and needs to be nourished to promote longevity, sexual and hormonal vitality, and kidney health. Think of jing as your youth, and think of it metaphorically as the wax of a candle. Jing is burned daily (faster with stress), you must continue to build it up or it will eventually burn out.
