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,

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!

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 Рstarting with very small dosages and gradually building up Рare 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.
