What should you drink in the morning for the most health gains of all?
The Longevity Power Elixir Recipe Revolution!I’ve gone through countless phases of morning health drink routines. In my quest to utilize my AM beverage to improve my health, fitness, physical energy, mental clarity, immune system health and every aspect of wellness and performance I can conceive of, I’ve started my day with every concoction of modern times – from popular to fringe.
I’ve done local and imported spring waters, all kinds of fresh juices and teas, paleo decaf mochas, just about every smoothie ingredient combination possible, stacks upon stacks of pills and powders, and even just dry fasting. Of these and the like mentioned so far, none alone gave me the feeling of sustained balanced energy and nourishment I sought.
Thankfully there is one method of elixir that finally did the job and that I have stuck with for almost 10 years now: The Longevity Power Elixir. It’s loaded with the most potent versions of the most important superfoods and herbs used for thousands of years in human tradition, is really easy to make, way faster and simpler than a shake or butter coffee and mouthwateringly delicious. 4 or 5 ingredients and blender is all you need. It’s so good, you’ll want to make extra and bring with you in a mason jar so you can imbibe throughout your day for maximum energy, mental focus, deep metabolic and immune system healing, stress resilience and hydration.
I want to create an LP Elixir revolution with you! After all, this drink creates a personal health revolution upgrade in each person’s body who embarks. There are so many benefits in every blend, I chose to make a chart:

The Longevity Power Elixir Recipe Revolution!

 

How to make a Longevity Power Elixir:

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!

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!

Bad for your brain and nervous system: Eating an industrial diet rich in oxidized vegetable oils, sugar and chemicals and low in minerals and essential nutrients.
Good for your brain and nervous system: Eating an organic/wild/sustainable/traditional/local diet rich in healthy fats, specific healthful carbs, minerals and essential nutrients.
Really great and restorative for your brain and nervous system: Eating the best version you can of the diet above as well as specific therapeutic fats and herbs/nutraceuticals/supplements that protect against stress and accelerate the healing of your nerves and brain.**
Today, it’s not enough to just “eat healthy” because most of us grew up eating damaging foods, being exposed to environmental toxins (many of which are fat soluble and effect the nerves, brain and endocrine system), and experiencing various levels of stress and trauma. Our brain was perhaps built with less than what it needed, and so now it requires therapeutic nutrition to get back its elemental integrity and to be able to give you the gift of a calm and healthy mind so that you may take consistent action on your biggest dreams and passions.
Our top two picks of herbs that support the brain for mental calm and clarity** are reishi mushroom and red asparagus root.
These two tonics have been traditionally used for thousands of years in Asia. However, high quality potent versions of them remain rare today.
Red100% Organic Mental Clarity asparagus root has finally become in-the-know by those that study tonic herbalism. But it’s almost impossible to find. I have spent years trying to find an extract that was consistent in quality and very potent and now I can say that we have it! It’s 100% certified organic and delicious red asparagus root extract. It’s called Levity.
Reishi mushroom is easy to find but most of it is “commodity reishi” which is grown on nutrient-poor substrates of grain or sawdust which create nutrient-poor reishi. I also spent years trying premium reishi extracts seeking the very best one possible. I can confidently say that I now have the very best. It is arguably better than wild reishi that one could harvest and brew his or her self. Here’s why: It’s not grown on grain or sawdust. 100% Organic Mental ClarityIt’s not even grown on logs (which can yield good reishi but I often question the forestry conservation ethics done by such logging). It’s grown on organic and wild herbs and grasses (up to 40+ species used) that are composted, cooked and then inoculated with reishi. This sustainable substrate is so nutrient dense it makes the reishi higher in polysaccharides, richer in germanium and have novel compounds too. The final product is a 100% organic deep dark coffee-like-flavored extract powder we call Epic Reishi.
Stacking Levity and Epic Reishi together (you can mix in just about anything such as a tasty elixir or a bullet proof coffee or a smoothie) helps one feel very calm yet clear and energized while building resilience to stress and nourishing the rest of the body all day long.**
Our products are bottled in amber jars and are available at bulk-rate pricing in our shop. To get the best price-per-potent-serving, consider ordering 3+ jars at once with our discount bundles.

How to Revolutionize Green Juice

Fresh green juice is good, but not great, and you deserve exceptional. I present my case:

Green juice = vegetables. Vegetables = mostly plants that have been bred over millennia to be mild edibles, no longer strong medicines of the wild. So my question for you is: How much are you really getting out of your green juice?

My contention is that green juices can kick start someone’s system when they first begin a holistic healing lifestyle, but in the long run give diminishing returns in health benefits.

Shortly after I first began my health journey 15 years ago, I got very much into green juice. I would make and drink 2 quarts a day. It felt great… at first. Within a year I hit a wall and generous servings of green juice no longer made me feel good. They made me feel just too alkaline instead of nourished.

In desiring to keep the alkaline-forming portion of my diet as expanded as possible I eventually found my way to tonic herbs and certain nutrient dense wild foods and superfoods that helped me feel great all the time. I bypassed green juice.

If you feel like it would be beneficial to upgrade your green juice ritual or to start one that gives you maximum results with the least effort – and skip the kitchen clean up  that follows all juicing too – I cordially invite you to make our Instant Dark-Green “Juice” with Benefits. It’s a refreshing and delicious elixir using our Revival Formula, which doesn’t contain the same old cucumber, grass or kale, but instead a premium blend of 6 algae and 18 tonic herbs, superfoods and medicinal mushrooms. It is a true nutraceutical tonic, not just a weak vegetable hit.

Our Dark-Green “Juice” Elixir = algae + tonic herbs + medicinal mushrooms + superfood extracts + wild foods + medicinal vegetable extracts + pure water

It’s lower carb than green juice, ketogenic friendly, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, paleo-friendly and excellent for those with candida or an aversion to wheat grass and kale over consumption. 😉

The algae in it provide more chlorophyl than any typical green juice, as well as nutrients that vegetables are low in like immune system strengthening polysaccharides and long chain omega-3 fatty acids. This formula is designed to nourish your brain and help you kick butt all day long.**

The Instant Dark-Green “Juice” Elixir Recipe

Blend on high in any blender for 10 seconds:

3/4 cup spring water

1/3 cup ice cubes

1 teaspoon Longevity Power Revival Formula

1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract OR the fresh juice of half of an organic lemon

1/8 teaspoon, to taste, stevia extract powder (I love NOW Better Stevia)

1/16 teaspoon sea salt

Pour into a glass and self nourish (and share)!

  

Of course, if you are really digging fresh green juice these days, more power to you! I suggest upgrading/revolutionizing your green juice by stirring a teaspoon of Revival Formula into it so that your body and brain can receive even more health benefits.

To your greatest health!

-Christian

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!
