Depleted, moody and aging? Nature has your back! Get ready to learn the top 5 health-revolutionizing reasons to take He Shou Wu!

He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiform) is a root that has been used for at least 1400 years in Asia, is one of the most famous herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Tonic Herbalism, and is revered for its anti-aging and longevity promoting benefits.**

5 Health-Revolutionizing Reasons to Take He Shou Wu Root (#2 is my favorite!)

He What Who? How do you pronounce this sacred herb? Don’t worry if your tongue slipped, there is no one right way to pronounce it – it depends on your dialect and accent. An approximately pronounced ‘Huh Show Woo‘ will work just finely. Now say that 5 times fast! All silliness aside, the best way to study and memorize the effects (and the names) of herbs is to take them. Being a gastronaut is an educational process.

#5. REJUVENATION!

He Shou Wu is similarly as heart-healthy and massively rejuvenating as red wine’s resveratrol, only STRONGER!

Its main active constituents are its stilbene glycosides. Many of these stilbenes are more powerful antioxidants than resveratrol. Protect and repair the body from free radical damage and restore the sense of youth that is your birthright.**

#4. GREAT HAIR!

It’s commonly known in Asia as the herb to take for naturally reversing gray hair and restoring hair color.

There is no one exact reason why many people report these benefits – He Shou Wu has many nutrients and overall effects that lead to healthier hair follicles, including its trace mineral content (zinc, iron, and many others), ability to help restore the adrenals, rich antioxidant content, and stress reducing capacity.**

#3. DNA PROTECTION!5 Health-Revolutionizing Reasons to Take He Shou Wu Root (#2 is my favorite!)

Not only does He Shou Wu contain potent antioxidants, it is also an antioxidant-potentiator.

SOD (superoxide dismutase) is an antioxidant enzyme that blocks your cells and your DNA from mutagenic damage from oxygen, free radicals and radioactive isotopes – all common and pervasive oxidants to which we are each exposed.** He Shou Wu has been shown to have SOD-generating capacity. Want a healthy mind and a long living body (I mean looooooooooong living body!), then nourish your body’s ability to circulate SOD. 

#2. BLISS!

He Shou Wu is nature’s ecstasy.

He Shou Wu contains MAO-Is (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) – specifically inhibitors of MAO-B. MAO-B is a naturally occurring enzyme in your body that breaks down neurotransmitters like dopamine (good mood and energy) and phenethylamines (the ‘love chemicals’). Since we tend to come from a background of not having quite enough of these happy neurotransmitters, our body may be breaking these essential chemicals down too much for our own good and sustainable energy and happiness. Taking He Shou Wu is an effective strategy at perfecting the way our brain and nervous system (and our experience of reality) work. MAOI’s occur in other plants like chocolate, but He Shou Wu is considered the most powerful MAO-B inhibitor that is safe and effective for daily use.**

He Shou Wu is also a potent sexual health restoring substance and makes the perfect bliss-inducing aphrodisiac for both men and women.**

#1. STRESS RESILIENCE!

He Shou Wu is a true adaptogen. It is uplifting yet calming to both body and mind.

He Shou Wu is neither a stimulant nor a suppressant, but rather it gives your body the restorative energy it needs to combat stress.** You feel it right away but it also works on you cumulatively over time. It’s a beautiful experience to take an herb like He Shou Wu and feel gently uplifted in the body and calm and clear in the mind. This makes He Shou Wu perfect in the morning, perfect in the evening, perfect any time! In Chinese Medicine it is considered a tonic to ‘Yin Jing’ and ‘Blood’ which makes it suitable for just about everybody as a reliable way of stabilizing and thoroughly nourishing the body near daily.

 

IMPORTANT:

All the effects listed above only apply to well-extracted prepared He Shou Wu.

Raw (unprepared) He Shou Wu is not a true tonic and is considered a laxative and mildly toxic. It has its place in tonic herbalism – usually in small amounts in certain herbal formulas. Be aware of sellers of He Shou Wu who are selling raw He Shou Wu as a tonic – they may not know any better. Here at Longevity Power we only use Prepared He Shou Wu in our formulas.

5 Health-Revolutionizing Reasons to Take He Shou Wu Root (#2 is my favorite!)Prepared He Shou Wu is prepared by being stewed with black beans (or sometimes yams) at a ratio of about 9 parts He Shou Wu roots and 1 part black beans. Be aware of sellers who may be using genetically modified (GMO) soy beans. Here at Longevity Power we only use NON-GMO black soybeans to prepare our He Shou Wu.

He Shou Wu must be well-extracted. Pouring hot water over roots and briefly steeping does not work (this only works with delicate leafy plants like green tea or gynostemma). Prepared He Shou Wu must be decocted in hot water for hours to unlock the active nutrients from the fiber of the root and dissolve them into the water. Here at Longevity Power we take things to a whole new level and decoct using pressure reiteration to further break open the roots’ cell structure and dissolve the active nutrients into sub-boiling (<90*C – better for preserving heat-sensitive nutrients) pure water. We take this water extract and dehydrate it into a malty-tasting water-soluble brown powder. It takes about 16 pound of dried Prepared He Shou Wu roots to make 1 pound of our dried extract. Our Prepared He Shou Wu Extract Powder contains about 8% stilbene glycosides (the resveratrol-like antioxidants described in reason #5 above).

I hope this article brings you clarity and upliftment on your path of health. Please consider taking He Shou Wu as your next healing strategy – add it to your very important life.

Hi. Christian Bates here, founder of Longevity Power. It’s time to show you my latest in superfood creations: My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream which features some ancient foods to help you succeed at your allergy free high nutrition living so that you can make your health and fitness goals come true!**

You’ll notice in the title that I did not say ‘Dairy Free.’ Keep an open mind as I explain. I’m about to introduce to you  something that is neither vegan, nor raw. Okay, it’s an all out cooked animal product.

I know, I know… you’re thinking “Christian…my bro… I’m into adding in more raw plant foods into my life, not more cooked animal foods. You must be trippin.’ ”

Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe (Casein Free, Sugar Free, Very Low Glycemic) + Ghee Explained

Let me explain. I’m into balance, not labeling myself (but I am into labels on food products and I am for labeling of GMOs!); I love adding in the very best from every tradition. I’m into the cleansing aspects of hardcore raw vegan approaches, but several years (yep, I was a raw vegan for that long) of avoiding animal products just starts to feel bad. The body aches for what it needs.

According to a several thousand year old vegetarian/mostly vegetarian tradition practiced by billions of people called Ayurveda, this cooked animal fat is considered life itself. Whoa! It’s called Ghee. And it’s what the Ayurvedic doctor ordered.

For all the people who aren’t ready to try ghee, I won’t be pushy. I’m going to give you strategic and tasty options to make this ice cream a vegan/dairy free one, but I also invite (gently persuade) you to try an amazing ingredient which is the only milk product I regularly ‘do’ at this time (or maybe will ever do because all other forms of dairy except this one give me a mucus reaction): Ghee.

Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe (Casein Free, Sugar Free, Very Low Glycemic) + Ghee Explained

Freshly made ghee in glass

Ghee is the traditional Ayurvedic clarified butter. It’s pure butter oil with nearly 100% of the casein, lactose, milk solids and water removed. It’s made from organic grass-fed cow butter. Butter is 80% oil, 20% milk. Ghee is 100% oil, 0% milk. It’s pure essential fats – like coconut oil or cacao butter, but it’s an animal product and is high in CLA (Conjugated linoleic acids), a category of fatty acids that has been shown to have anticancer properties, strengthen immune function, and help the human body healthfully burn fat and healthfully reduce body fat deposits.

And yet it’s not raw. Ghee is made by cooking butter just above 200*F to coax the milk solids to separate off, leaving the pure butter oil. This process gives ghee a most enjoyable butterscotch flavor (before artificial flavors, butterscotch flavor was literally made from scorching butter, or ‘butter-scorch’.)

So why is ghee so fabulously healthy even though it is cooked? Well it’s just like coconut oil, which is highly resistant to oxidation from heat. Perhaps you have heard that coconut oil is consider the healthiest oil with which to cook. Well, I put coconut oil in 2nd place. Ghee is the most healthful to cook with and has an even higher smoking temperature. It’s healthy saturated fat content protects it from oxidation during heat. But, like all oils, ghee should be kept in glass, away from plastic and away from direct sunlight and be used as fresh as possible for the most health benefits.

I recommend Ancient Organics Ghee. These guys rock, are local to me (as is the farm they get their butter from), and obey the Ayurvedic details when they make the ghee (like only making it during the full or waxing moons.)

 

My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe tastes like vanilla butterscotch carmel with a hint of foresty goodness from all the adrenal-restoring tonic herbs in it.

Feel free to double this recipe.

 

Blend in blender on medium-high for at least 1 minute until very warm (so that the fats emulsify):

2 1/2 tablespoon ghee (or warm coconut oil or melted cacao butter, but ghee will give it the best ice cream flavor and texture without the ice cream allergens)

1 1/2 tablespoon non-GMO lecithin powder

1/2 can (7 oz) BPA-free canned full-fat organic coconut milk (Native Forest Organic Classic Coconut Milk is great)

1 free-range organic egg yolk or additional 1 teaspoon non-GNO lecithin powder (if you choose egg yolk, you are deciding for yourself how to handle raw egg yolk so use your very best judgement)

 

Then add and blend on high for 20 seconds:

2 tablespoons non-GMO glycerin (this is really low glycemic amazing stuff!) or sweetener of choice (honey, etc.)

1 1/2 tablespoons spring water

1 teaspoon Maca Bliss

1 teaspoon Goji Joy

1 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder

1/2 teaspoon Prepared He Shou Wu extract powder

1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder (use less if you are sensitive to stevia, use a touch more if you love stevia!)

1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, to taste

OPTIONAL: 1 teaspoon Longevity Spirulina (best tasting spirulina!)

Pour into an ice cream maker, or into a bowl to set for a few hours in the freezer. Scoop into a small serving bowl and drizzle with Edible Goddess Chocolate Gold (best chocolate sauce ever!) or my very low glycemic butterscotch-caramel sauce:

 

Butterscotch-Caramel Sauce Recipe

Stir until smooth in a small bowl using a small silicon spatula. Feel free to double or triple recipe:

1 tablespoon non-GMO glycerin (the zero-glycemic option) or any wholesome liquid sweetener of choice

1/2 teaspoon ghee or warm coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder

1 pinch KAL stevia extract powder, to taste
