Wishing you a thriving week of wellness.
What’s in stock at Longevity Power? A brand new batch of Epic Reishi, Longevity in a Bottle, Mushroom Immunity and Glow He Shou Wu – four of our most intensely dark, nutrient dense, potent-as-ever adaptogenic formulas.
Reishi was my first love, when it came to my relationship and journey with herbs. It’s undeniable mood-elevating, stress-reducing, mental-clarity-boosting effects are just so enjoyable and satisfying – and more importantly give long term perpetual health results. You can’t say that chaga most herbs or foods. But reishi is queen like that.
What's in stock at Longevity Power (and a little story of my herbalism journey)!
Other medicinal mushrooms like chaga and lion’s mane became my other herbal loves and started the ball rolling in my desire to become abundant and proficient in herbalism and the less commonly known but vitally important factors of holistic nutrition.
My first root I fell for was maca and years later, he shou wu: the richly grounding restoring dopamine-boosting anti-aging best-bang-for-your-buck adaptogen from Asia.
After spending over a decade with these and 70+ other superfoods and herbs that I would regularly imbibe, I developed an easy, quick, balanced, comprehensive, potent way (rather than taking years of a learning curve and sourcing project as I had to) of getting the top 40 of these herbal allies into your body daily: the Longevity in a Bottle formula.
What's in stock at Longevity Power (and a little story of my herbalism journey)!
The journey continues now as I help spread the word to open-minded and open-mouthed (open up, instant elixir delivery, drink up!) people like you on just how important the world of herbs, superfoods and other ‘missing from the modern diet’ food groups like healthful fats, connective tissue proteins, spring water and wild foods are. Thank you for being part of this enriching processes and we dive deeper into our own inner state of health and the interconnected ecology around us. ūüėÄ
Cheers, to all of our greatest states of health possible,

Morning Hacks: The Best and Worst Ways for High Performers to Start Their Day
I’ve been starting my day with ample hydration and massive amounts of quality nutrition for 15 years, but so much of society is all about a breakfast of sugar and drugs followed by¬†more sugar and drugs. Some recommendations we often hear (like starting your day with sweet fruit) seem reasonable but actually have side effects that could zap your energy, mood and performance for the rest of the day. Here’s my list from the most terrible to¬†the absolute¬†best ways to start your day for maximum health and long lasting physical and mental energy.

The WORST Ways to Start Your Day

Avoid or completely modify these common habits:
  • Waking up, skipping drinking water and immediately drinking¬†black¬†coffee (a recipe for dehydration, headaches and never feeling quite well)
  • Toast and other dense¬†carbs for breakfast (unless you like fungal overgrowth, blood sugar rollercoasters and feeling stressed)
  • Grain-based cereal with conventional milk (more excess carbs and inflammatory ingredients that subtract¬†from your potential)

The HALF-DECENT Ways to Start Your Day

Make these more of an exception than the norm:
  • Organic fruit based smoothie (for¬†most people this may lead to a sugar crash a couple hours or so later)
  • Organic fruit juices (juice is still high in sugar, just as high as soda and only moderately nutrient dense – probably only healthful for athletes who will immediately burn it all off – green juices are better, though can contain a significant amount of sugar as well)

The Very BEST Ways to Start Your Day

Do most of these every day forever:
  • Hydrate with plenty of pure (spring) water first thing (start doing this before bed the night before – it’s okay if you have to pee at night, it’s natural)
  • Make a Longevity Power water-based elixir (plenty of recipes here and here)
  • Wait a while (30 minutes or up to several hours if your blood sugar remains stable) before eating food (this is called intermittent fasting and has so many benefits)
  • After hydrating, but before eating food, take your current stack of supplements and adaptogenic herbs (most of which do best¬†taken¬†on an empty stomach, though there are many¬†supplements out there that are best taken with food – and most food is best taken with adaptogenic herbs – top ways to consume adaptogens in food)
  • Make a Bulletproof coffee (if your body does well with coffee and dairy)
  • Make a Bulletproof style caffeine-free dairy-free¬†blended drink
  • Make a Longevity Power style shake (like this one, this one, and this one)
  • A breakfast rich in healthful¬†fat, fiber, protein and nutrition (rather than carbs) for long burning energy, satiation and blood sugar balance
  • Sunshine all over your eyes and body (get your circadian rhythm and vitamin D levels optimized)
  • Exercise of al kinds to kick start your metabolism, anti-stress hormones, and circulation for a happy body and brain for the¬†rest of the day
Keep adding in better habits and replacing the old that no longer serve you. Each habit builds your health and builds you up to your next new habit until you become one ever more confident and savvy healthy lifestylist. Listen to your body and nourish yourself fully. You have great things to do in this world, and you deserve to feel great all along the way!
To your greatest health!

Why you should use adaptogens to make your body clean and lean!
Spring leaning made easier!
Have you had trouble accomplishing your weight loss and fitness goals? I’ve been there. It might be because you’re not eating a category of nutrition¬†that most of humanity consumed daily until relatively recently.
Adaptogens (AKA tonic herbs) are the missing food group most of us grew up without – and yet they are used extensively in every ancient herbal tradition and in all known hunter gather societies. Only a modern industrial diet (like the Standard American Diet – what most people eat today) avoids them out of ignorance.
An adaptogen is so named as it helps your cells adapt and thrive amidst stressors. These powerhouse plants and mushrooms are so nutrient dense that they can help reverse nutrient deficiencies, soothe one’s nervous system and act to restore the function of vital glands including the adrenals and thyroid.
They do way more than what green juice and a multivitamin can do. Each herb has a synergy of human-active compounds that creates both immediate and long term cumulative effects like modulation of the immune system, hormone balancing and blood sugar control.
Many years ago, the first supplements I got on were an adaptogen formula and a green powder blend (that had adaptogens in it too). This was the perfect stack that made improving my diet and exercise routine so much easier than it would have been and I lost 50 excess pounds in 6 months! I was 16 years old. I’m 32 now and fitter than I’ve ever been! Adaptogens are more important to me than ever and not only keep me energized and craving healthy effective exercise¬†every day, they are key to¬†preventing early signs of aging.
Naturally, I highly recommend using Longevity Power adaptogens as your foundational pre-workout, recovery, adrenal nourishment and spring cleanse protocol which are key for successful fitness, weight loss, and detoxification strategies.
Feel free to comment or message me with any questions you have. Let me know your concerns and goals, so I can help you make your butt-kicking dreams come to fruition!
To a more deeply healthy you!
Christian Bates
P.S. Just took this picture this yesterday morning. I’m super excited to become a cleaner, leaner, adaptogen-fueled machine starting today and every day! Are you?

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days

Before I go into the specific top herbs that beautify your skin in 30 days, there is an idea I want to express to you that is more important than any 1 herb: This idea is that:

Herbs are essential for one’s health. Period.

Even a most wholesome organic modern western diet will skimp on the herbs, or have herbs in small doses for flavoring only. You can take whatever nutritional path you are on, and just ADD HERBS IN! Herbs should have a BIG section in your food pyramid.

The herbs to ‘go to first’ are the tonic herbs which are adaptogenic herbs that tonify the body, are safe for daily use with no side effects, and can be used ongoingly for a lifetime of cumulative benefits.

Here are the top 8 tonic herbs that when taken internally immediately and cumulatively do wonders for nourishing and beautifying the skin and balancing skin conditions:

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days

Fresh schisandra berries galore!

1. Schisandra Berry

Schisandra Berry (Schisandra chinensis), also Schizandra,¬†the “5-flavor berry,” is the most well-rounded-in-effect herb ever. Those 5 flavors (sour/astringent, sweet, bitter, salty, spicy/pungent,) correspond to a wide range of nutrients and effects on the organs of the body. Schisandra’s dominant sour and astringent flavor boosts liver cleansing and thus skin radiance because they are so closely related. Astringency locks in moisture for the skin and helps your body assimilate all other nutrition consumed with schisandra. A richly-red high antioxidant food and herb to be taken daily for beauty through the ages.**

 

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days2. Horsetail

Horsetail (Equisetum arvense, Equisetum telmateia, and some other species of the Equisetum genus) is one of the highest bio-available-silica substances ever. And, silica is THE BEAUTY AND YOUTH MINERAL. An extract of a young horsetail plant gives the body the free silica it needs to regenerate tissue and make it soft, supple and strong. Silica is one of the main co-factor nutrients required in bone growth. The more organic silica you can get in your body the more your skin will be baby soft.**

Dried goji berries

3. Goji Berry

A handful of delicious red-orange goji berries¬†(Lyceum¬†barbaric¬†and¬†Lycium chinense)¬†or a couple doses of goji berry extract or tea a day is a tradition going back eons to create a youthening effect in the partaker.** ¬†A super-antioxidant, carotenoid-rich, polysaccharide-laden, flavonoid-dense superfood, goji does wonders for your inner and outer body.** It’s not “just a berry.” Try them daily and experience the glow.

 

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days4. Eucommia

Eucommia (Eucommia ulmoides) bark is rich in a rubber/latex substance. An extract of this tissue, joint and skeletal repairing material promotes inner health and beauty and helps youthen the skin. An active constituent in Eucommia, aucubin, has been shown to protect the skin against UV radiation and helps prevent photo-aging.**

 

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days5. Rehmannia

Use prepared (not raw) rehmannia (Rehmannia glutinosa) root extract for a massive revitalization of the kidneys and nourishment of the liver and blood. When the kidneys (your body’s battery packs), liver and blood are running strong, guess what happens: the skin beautifies with its full natural color and glow.**

Rehmannia tea is THE most grounding elixir ever – as long as you don’t drink too much at once or it will loosen your stool slightly. ūüėČ

 

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days6. Red Asparagus Root

Completely different from the asparagus vegetable, Red Asparagus Root is the ancient Taoist tonic herb used by spiritual seekers for generations to produce an open-hearted feeling of levity above the mundane. It cools, moistens and beautifies the skin and recharges the adrenals and sexual functions.**

 

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days7. He Shou Wu

Prepared (not raw, just like with rehmannia the raw is not as nourishing) He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) has been used by tens of millions of people in Asia to nurture beautiful colorful hair. It deeply nourishes and cleanses the organs (which always leads to nourishing and cleansing of the skin). It greatly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. SOD is a powerful antioxidant (free radical scavenger), demonstrated to have powerful anti-aging benefits in humans.**

 

8. Pearl

Hydrolyzed Pearl extract has always been considered the quintessential beauty herb for women (and for men as far as I’m concerned.) It is rich in amino acids and trace minerals which nurture the delicate nuances of fantastic skin.¬†Pearl is a top Chinese beauty herb that uplifts the spirit and is the only form of calcium carbonate one should ever take (other forms are mined chalk).** Although not a vegan product, many plant-based folders love to add in pearl to their lifestyle as a strategic beauty food that calms the mind and fills in nutritional gaps. It can be mixed with coconut oil or an organic high quality body butter to make outstanding homemade edible skincare.

 

Bonus Herb #9:

Top 8 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 DaysI like to add this one in as a bonus, but many Russian medicinal mushroom researchers would call this the #1 herb for skin health and whole body vitality: Chaga mushroom sclerotia. Revered for its incredible antioxidant and melanin (think skin pigment and hormone balance) content, this immune strengthening adaptogen has been consumed for eons by humans. In a world of radioactive pollution and radiation from the sun, Chaga is the ultimate protective. Combined with the herbs listed above, we have the ability to repair and tighten up skin. Chaga is great at fighting back at moles, fungal rashes and other mutagenic skin occurrences.**
