Super Herb Cola-Flavored Elixir for the Masterful and Determined
For those interested in self-mastery and mastery of a skill, take reishi mushroom. It is the most renowned tonic herb for mental clarity and calm, while providing a deep reservoir of energy and physical endurance.* But do not take just any weak commodity reishi, take the fruiting body extract and spores of organic reishi grown on sustainable compost made from up to 40 herbs and grasses, we call Epic Reishi.
For those interested in passionate determination to accomplish feats of focus and strength, take maca root. It is a powerful adaptogen of sustained nourishment and improved cognition.* But do not take just any weak commodity maca root… take dual extract of organic black maca, we call Maca Bliss.
Together, these two super herbs provide the yin and the yang of high performance,* and when blended together just so, have a naturally delightful malty cola-like flavor explored in the following sugar-free, gluten-free, caffeine-free, vegan, paleo-friendly elixir recipe you can make easily at home or for work, preworkout or for on the go.

Super Herb Cola-Flavored Elixir for the Masterful and Determined

Blend on high in any blender for 10 seconds:
3/4 cup spring water
1/3 cup ice cubes
1 teaspoon Longevity Power Maca Bliss
1/2 teaspoon Longevity Power Epic Reishi
1/8 teaspoon, to taste, stevia extract powder (I love NOW Better Stevia)
1/16 teaspoon sea salt
OPTIONAL: 1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla liquid extract or 1/4 teaspoon organic almond liquid flavor extract
Pour into a glass (or mason jar) and imbibe in this hugely important habit on your road to self-mastery and accomplishing your most important goals!
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 our herbs as most of them are hot water extracts. Enjoy!
To your greatest health!

Top 5 Effective Ways to Consume Tonic HerbsWater-based hydrating tonic herbal elixirs are the cornerstone of how I easily and abundantly get herbs and superfoods into my body. Here is a basic elixir recipe you can adapt to any tonic herbal extract you have. What’s great about these is that they are mostly water so you can drink them all day like you would water, but instead of just hydrating you’re giving your body what it needs to power up and power through. They are sugar free and so delicious too, better than soda or a hit-the-spot sweetened tea. I make one every morning, drink half of it, ride on its energy for a while before needing to eat solid food, and drink the other half as I need it while hydrating throughout the rest of the day.

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!

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.

Getting High… via Vegan Paleo Mocha Chip Ice Cream
Some people are content to see the world exactly as they view it through their eyes and call it a day, every day.  Other people yearn for more: brighter colors, deeper feelings, cosmic connection.  I’ve always been the latter, and even as a small child I did things to get “high,” like push on my eyeballs with my fingers because it made me see flashes of pretty colors.  I have multiple memories of my mother scolding at me to stop that,  it can hurt your eyes.  It became a late-at-night (read: after 8 pm bedtime) pleasure, pretty much until I was old enough to smoke pot and moved on to that instead.  My college years were spent seeing A LOT OF PRETTY COLORS on a regular basis, and in the many years since my UC Santa Cruz haze, aka since “growing up” (while remaining a rainbow haired tattooed girl in DIY torn up tank tops), I’ve transitioned to finding euphoria in everything from farmers markets to herbal tonics.
Just because tonic herbs are legal, doesn’t mean they can’t get you crazy blissed out.  Beyond that, of course, are their myriad health benefits, which include everything from reversing gray hair (thank you, he shou wu!!) to helping your body better adapt to stress.  The only real issue I ever had with herbal tonics is the fact that though they are best absorbed eaten as a food rather than taken as a pill, they tend to taste pretty nasty.  Enter Longevity Power, purveyors of outrageously effective– and delightfully palatable– premium quality herbs.
When I first tried LP’s “Levity,” which is an extract of red asparagus root (not related to normal asparagus, the veggie), I seriously felt like I was back in Santa Cruz partying like the type of rock star I am way too old to make my body be these days.  It tastes like caramel, and it feels like ecstasy.  And it totally helps your body adapt to stress, to boot.  Add to that their Epic Reishi, which has an espresso flavor and provides support for your immune system, liver, and nervous system, and what do you get?  Well, if you’re a culinary creative, you get ICE CREAM.  Killer joyful mocha ice cream that is crazy good for you, being made predominantly of avocado and sweet potato, and is both vegan AND paleo, in addition to low glycemic.  It is also super easy to make, the most difficult aspect of it being the do-ahead roasted sweet potato, and no one will know it isn’t full of dairy, soy, or anything processed at all.  Because ice cream, like everything else, deserves to make you feel really, really good inside.
Getting High… via Vegan Paleo Mocha Chip Ice Cream

Magic Mocha Chip Ice Cream

1 small roasted sweet potato (any color)
1 avocado
1 1/2 cups coconut milk or other thick milk
1/4 cup raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
2 tbls coconut nectar or honey
3 tbls Longevity Power Levity
1 1/2 tsp Longevity Power Epic Reishi
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp chocolate extract
3/4 tsp salt
stevia to taste: I like Sweet Drops toffee and use 2 droppers full
Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender until smooth. If you don’t have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, add additional milk as needed. This is awesome eaten straight from the blender as a pudding, especially if you add a couple tbls of coconut oil before blending. But if you want to persevere and take it a step further to the land of frozen summer happiness, just chill the mixture until cold (about 1/2 an hour in the fridge, presuming your roasted sweet potato was cooled off) and then process in an ice cream maker.
Add 1/2 cup cacao nibs or chocolate chips, or some of each, at the very end, and freeze until firm.
Serve with a sprinkle of extra reishi on top and subsequently confound your friends and loved ones when you give them some then let them in on the fact that the tastiest mocha ice cream they’ve ever had has not a drop of dairy, soy, or coffee in it. Whole foods and superfoods take the cake– hell, they take the whole dessert– every time.

This Herbal Chocolate Dipped Fruit recipe will:

– protect your DNA from environmental toxins (many of the herbs are detoxifying and cell-protective in nature)**
– unleash the better side of your genetics – tap into your greatest physical + emotional potential**
– insure your health beyond what traditional health insurance could ever possibly offer**

Herbal Chocolate Dipped FruitINGREDIENTS

You only need to buy 2 items to make this recipe – I’ve kept it super simple for you!

1) Fresh organic ripe fruit (preferably from your local farmer’s market for berries, and if you use bananas please make sure they’re super ripe!)
2) 1-4 Chocolate Goldies (you can use more; this is a starting amount and what I used to make the recipe in pictures shown)

Herbal Chocolate Dipped Fruit

PREP WORK
1) Melt 4 Chocolate Goldies at a low temperature in the oven or hot water bath (in a bowl that’s within a bigger bowl of hot water) on top of the stove (each bar is 1 ounce so you’re melting 4 ounces total).
2) Chop your fresh fruit into bite-size pieces, place together on a plate for easy quick access, and get your natural wood / bamboo tongs & a spoon ready for action.

DIRECTIONS
1) With the melted chocolate in a bowl next to your plate of organic fruit, pick up a piece of fruit with the tongs, scoop a spoonful of the chocolate and pour over the fruit, let the excess drip off, and gently place on a separate clean plate.
2) Repeat until all fruit is used (don’t forget to taste test!) 😉

The Chocolate Goldies are a TEMPERED perfected superfood chocolate bar allowing your chocolate to naturally harden within minutes of being dipped with fruit. Once all fruit has been dipped or drenched, serve and enjoy as is, or pop in the fridge to relish later. YUM!!

The question may arise if you *have* to use the Chocolate Goldies – or can you just melt some bitter cacao paste, add some dried herbal powders, and call it good? My answer is that sure you can do anything you want, but not if you want supremely silky smooth (stone ground), truly aphrodisiac style, endocrine-supporting (hormone-balancing) cacao alchemy that will activate your inner power, ability to give and receive love, and inspire you to want more for yourself.

I’ve meticulously formulated the Herbal Harmony flavor that you’ll use for this recipe and it goes way beyond just adding a tonic herbal powder blend (Longevity in a Bottle) to a chocolate bar. Shoot for the stars you guys and you’ll zoom right past them IF you raise your standards and align with the most potent high integrity nutrition that is 100% recognized by your body as real food.

Prioritize your health & happiness, today… right now! What could be more fun or delicious than whipping up a quick batch of these chocolate dipped fruits and enjoying them as a treat with friends? You and everyone you make these for will adore them not only because they are a quick raw dessert recipe to make, but because you get your infusion of 40 different adaptogenic tonic herbs in every single bite. You don’t need to know how to formulate tonics or how to synergize herbs for maximum potency and absorption. I’ve done this complex step for you!
