Reishi: The Mushroom of Equanimity
The number one quality I desire to see in all people I meet is that they can be clear and strong minded: consistent equanimity.
This is the gold: To have equanimity of thought and to continue to express supportive and logical beliefs about life and about oneself even amidst stress. When I see someone lose their composure of emotional intelligence, I can’t help but feel a little bad for them and wish deeply that I could help them ‘hack‘ their mind and get right back to (and then improve upon) their mental clarity so they can be the brilliant person they were born to be!

Reishi: The Mushroom of Equanimity

If you’re reading this, that means that you are already open to the idea that what you put in your body makes a huge impact on how your brain works and how you handle stress. So I’m sure that you are taking some action on your path of gearing your nutrition and lifestyle to improve your body and mind.
You rock for thinking critically, reflecting on your life and making healthier choices so you can feel great, think more clearly and kick butt at your passions!*
But, how is that going for you so far? Be honest. Where do you still fumble? Would you like to improve your resilience to stress so the best parts of your character can shine all day?
For the first ten years of improving my diet, I did have some significant health gains, but I would still get stressed so easily at least once a day. I would internalize anger and feel frustrated at even the mildest of stresses. I thought I was just being a perfectionist, but now I believe it was mostly a nutrition and health problem. I had tapped out my adrenals and nervous system with all the low fat cleansing protocols I had done back then and I consumed very little wild, nutrient dense nutrition, especially herbal nutrition, in my health strategy. I was eating to maintain health (good) but I wasn’t yet eating to restore health (better!)

Reishi: The Mushroom of Equanimity

Over the years I realized that if I wanted to have truly impeccable responses to stress (to feel good all of the time and to have clarity of mind for consistent, supportive, rational beliefs about myself amid all that life throws at me) I needed to up my nutrition game and go way beyond fruits and vegetables.
Enter: Reishi mushroom, the top ingredient in the category of nutrition, tonic herbs, I was missing up until then.
Reishi was one of the first truly therapeutic supplements/tonic herbs/superfoods I got on.
Often called the ‘mushroom of immortality’ and used throughout Asia and other parts of the world as a tonic and remedy for thousands of years, reishi now has decades of scientific research demonstrating how it can modulate and strengthen the immune system, can have anti-tumor effects, may protect and repair the liver, helps defend against allergies and blood sugar issues, may help improve sleep, and – my favorite – can help the mind focus, feel calm, unstressed and energized without the need for drugs and without any crash or side effects, and more benefits than I can list here.*

Reishi: The Mushroom of Equanimity

Reishi gives immediate benefits within 20 minutes of taking it but there are also cumulative long term benefits from taking it daily over months and years. These benefits are associated with reishi’s unique array of human active constituents like polysaccharides, glycoproteins, triterpenes, germanium and more.
Reishi is extremely nutritious when it comes to essential trace nutrients. Well, some reishi is. Most reishi out there is reishi mycelium grown on rice. Mycelium is the cheapest form of reishi and is what most reishi products are made from. When I first started taking reishi I quickly realized that this form of reishi only gave me some of the noticeable benefits when I would take extra large expensive multi-tablespoons dosages of it throughout the day. Fortunately I discovered better extracts of different parts of the reishi mushroom like the fruiting body that corresponded to the traditional use of reishi and the extracts used in most of the studies on reishi. These were much more potent and only required a small daily serving to work wonders on my state of health and ability to focus.*
I became a reishi connoisseur. Two years before starting Longevity Power I was fortunate enough to successfully source what I consider to be the best reishi on the planet. It’s even better than wild reishi! Normally I think that the wild version of anything is the best but I do make a critical exception here for good reason: This reishi, which we call Epic Reishi, is grown not on trees, logs, grain or sawdust, but on a super-compost made of up to 40 different herbs and grasses – a certified organic sustainable substrate that allows the mushrooms to grow more polysaccharides, more germanium, and novel compounds. We only use our fruiting body triple hot water extract and the extremely potent cracked-cell-wall spores (50% of the formula is spores!) This exceeds the power of a homemade wild reishi tea and is magnitudes more potent and cost effective than the other reishi and medicinal mushroom products on the shelf!*
I’ll say it again: The number one quality I desire to see in all people I meet is that they are clear and strong minded (equanimity!) From this, all other great qualities of a person can arise.
Please order yourself a jar or two of Epic Reishi so that you will have a nutritional tool you can rely on to take your physical and mental health to your next level! I know you’ll just love it!
Epic Reishi is discounted now through March 31, 2017, so be sure to try it or stock up!

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!

No-Bake Cinnamon Vanilla Maca Gingerbread Recipe

This recipe is so awesome because aside from its medicinal mushroom base (don’t worry, doesn’t take like mushrooms), it’s very flexible in regard to ingredient choices. Never make the same tasting batch twice! It’s rich and lightly sweetened, so it goes perfect with the Longevity Power Ice Cream.

 

Place in a large mixing bowl or food processor and mix well:

1 cup raw medicinal mushroom mycelium – whether reishi, cordyceps, chaga or shroom blends, each medicinal mushroom has its own flavor but they all mostly taste like rice protein powder and make for a perfect low carb, hypoallergenic, energizing, gluten-free ‘flour of immunity!’**

1/4 cup warm softened healthful ‘shortenings’ –  pick 2 of these thick healthy fats: Organic ghee, organic cacao butter, organic refined coconut oil, organic virgin coconut oil, organic red palm oil, organic sunflower liquid lecithin, or grass-fed butter

1 1/2 tablespoons wholesome liquid sweetener – pick 1 or 2 of these ‘syrups:’ non-gmo/Organic glycerin, raw honey, organic molasses, etc.

1/2 tablespoon granular sweetener, such as Erythritol or Xylitol

1 tablespoon Maca Bliss

3/4 teaspoon Organic ground dried ginger or freshly micro-planed fresh ginger, to taste

1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon Organic true Ceylon cinnamon powder cassia cinnamon will do as well

2 pinches organic stevia extract, or more to taste

2 pinches Organic clove powder or freshly crushed dried clove buds

2 pinches freshly micro-planed Organic nutmeg

 

Press gingerbread dough into gingerbread molds, other festive mold shapes, or shape them with your own hands, or press flat and use cookie cutters.

Top or sandwich with the Longevity Power Ice Cream (recipe in my free ebook HERE).

Place in freezer for at least 2 hours. Eat, recharge and glow!

 

 

To your greatest version of yourself!
