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 60 of them.
Longevity in a Bottle 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)!
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.
Eucommia Bark Extract - Eucommia ulmoides: Made from a latexy bark. Powerful joint and tissue building jing tonic from Chinese tonic herbalism.
American Ginseng Root Extract - Panax quinquefolium: The cooling type of ginseng from North America which causes serious jing building and massive adaptability response in your body to stress, which is why ginseng is the most famous tonic herb in the west (for all the western people who experience the stress of modern western lifestyles.)
Panax Ginseng Root Extract – Panax ginseng: The warming type of ginseng from Asia. See above.
Prepared He Shou Wu Root Extract – Polygonum multiflorum: A near-black substance that richly nourishes the kidneys and causes bliss. Epic jing building herb.
Prepared Rehmannia Root Extract – Rehmannia glutinosa: Considered “the kidney’s own food” in Chinese medicine, this is the most grounding and restorative herb ever. To nourish the kidneys is like recharging your battery packs.

Agaricus Blazei Mushroom Fruitbody Extract – Agaricus blazei/subrufescens: One of the richest in polysaccharides (pure immune system food) of all the medicinal mushrooms.

Schisandra Berry Extract – Schisandra chinensis: The 5-flavored berry. Because it contains all 5 flavors it has a broad spectrum of effects from its diverse medicinal constituents. It is considered the most well-rounded, most powerful herb in Chinese tonic herbalism.

Russia has done countless studies on chaga, proving it to be one of the most important herbs ever used.
Shilajit Extract: A natural mineral pitch which slowly oozes out of rock over eons is high in fulvic and humic acids which promote detoxification. The “rock invincible” (Shilajit is a Sanskrit word) is often considered the #1 herb in Ayurveda.
Organic Reishi Mushroom Fruitbody Extract – Ganoderma lucidum: The Queen of the mushrooms that builds jing while providing mental calm and focus. Rieshi “works on you” over months of daily consumption to help dispel bad habits.
