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!

My Energy-Chi (or Energy-Qi) Tonic is something you’ve never experienced before. The instant yet deeply restorative long-burning energy** you get from this lightly creamy elixir is so epic, I had to make it the first drink I demonstrated at a recent potluck/longevity lecture I did in Mill Valley, CA.
If They Mated: Rich Superfood Smoothie + Ice Watery Herbal Elixir. Audience, can you guess what their offspring would look like? It’s my handsome Energy-Qi Tonic.
The key ingredient is my new Longevity Power product Maca Bliss, a powdered 10:1 extract of Black Maca. It’s sweet and creamy without the starch and sugar found in whole maca, plus it’s black maca which according to the research is more powerful than red, yellow and mixed color maca. As an extract it becomes a true herbal tonic, as well as a highly concentrated superfood. Serious anti-stress food for your endocrine system (hormones) and quite warming for the winter.

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.
Most 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.
Enjoy your health!
