The #1 thing I consume – besides spring water – is my Tonic Herbal Skyrocket Elixir. I wish to share with you this most important recipe I have ever created, and perhaps will ever create.
But before I do, let us put into perspective something about food and medicine. And by these 2 categories of edibles I mean:
Food (caloric foods – macronutrient dominant)
Medicine (herbs – micronutrient dominant)
Foods will come and go. Today, your body might absolutely thrive on almonds. Tomorrow, you may get an allergic reaction from almonds (they are after all an agriculturally tweaked food, usually harvested from grafted limbs on trees, but I dirges). Almonds are in the food category. All foods are like this – we need to rotate them regularly – or sometimes give some up for a while.
Name any food or food type, and people have healed by simply abstaining from it.
Herbs – specifically tonic herbs (plants and mushrooms and their extracts appropriate and safe for daily use – herbs that impart cumulative effects with ongoing near-daily usage over a lifetime) don’t need to be rotated as much. Taking small breaks from tonic herbs has benefit, but for the most part taking more of or more consistently the renowned roots, barks, mushrooms, berries and leaves known as tonics dramatically improves one’s immune system and ability to resist stress.
Name any traditionally used tonic herb, and millions of people have healed by simply taking it daily.
Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” Whenever I hear this quote, I gawk and think that’s so deep, man. The latter half of the quote is what my recipe is all about. Let medicine be thy food. So deep!
I have found that my diet is no longer centered around food – because my food ingredients change day to day, year to year. My diet is centered around hydration and tonic herbs – the great tonic herbs like reishi mushroom, chaga mushroom, astragalus, goji berry, maca, and many more. Even when I fast and cleanse, it’s centered around tonic herbs and hydration.
I present to you the easiest, fastest, potent, most hydrating and mouthwatering, adaptable and adaptogenic Herbal Tonic Skyrocket Elixir Recipe. I make 3-4 of these per day to stay hydrated and strong!
Herbal Tonic Skyrocket Elixir Recipe:
Blend in blender for 15 seconds:
3 cups spring water
1 1/2 cups spring water ice cubes
1 tablespoon tonic herb extracts
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder or sweetener of choice, to taste
Let foam settle (you can blend in the stevia last to reduce how much ‘foam head’ is created) and serve in glass – or a mason jar to take with you on the go.
The 1 tablespoon tonic herb extracts part is up to you. What do you want to add in to your life today? You could start with medicinal mushroom extracts, or goji berry extract, or black maca extract, or everyone’s favorite, He Shou Wu.
I have created 7 products that I have found to be the most critical, most powerful, and most appropriate for near-daily use. Give them a try, and experience the deep restorative powers of high-end tonic herbs and superfood extracts. This is medicine that is always there for you, always nutritive, always mood-lifting, always deeply energizing, stress reducing and nourishing to your nervous system, endocrine system and organs.
If you have any questions about tonic herbs, please ask away in the comments section below. I’ll be right here to answer.
I like all my food gourmet, hit-the-spot, full-balanced-flavor, decadent, but also reeeeaaallly nutritious. Look at those 5 definitions again: gourmet… hit-the-spot… full-balanced-flavor… decadent… & really nutritious. The last one – really nutritious – is most important, but let me continue before I blow your mind…
Today, we will keep those 5 definitions and add a helpful dose of bitter, but what you end up with is more nutritious. I could be talking about any food sweet or savory, but I’m talking about chocolate…raw chocolate. Bitter sweet creamy raw chocolate. You like, yes?
The recipe below is how you take the love-inducing, blissful experience of raw cacao (unadulterated chocolate) and crank up the bliss into a ‘gateway’ super-joy experience which will educate you or another chocolate partaker into what nutrition is supposed to be about: an uplifting, perception-changing, empowering ride that just might send you to a new level of health. If you like what I just said, then this chocolate is for you.
Medicinal ‘I’ll Make You Fall in Love with Bitter’ Raw Chocolate
Melt raw cacao butter ahead of time to about 100*F. Blend in a blender:
1/2 cup melted raw cacao butter
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 cup raw hemp seeds
2 tablespoons Longevity in a Bottle – My siganture product with 60 of the world’s greatest superfoods and herbs all extracted into one dosage for maximum vitality, immunity enhancement and resilience to stress.
2 tablespoons lucuma powder
1 tablespoon organic sunflower seed lecithin oil OR 1 tablespoon more raw cacao butter
1/2 – 1 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon KAL stevia extract (use less if you are other than partial to stevia)
Pour into molds or ice cube trays and pop in the freezer for 30 minutes. If you used the sunflower seed lecithin oil, the chocolate will be somewhat soft at room temperature so store in the freezer or refrigerator. Serve everyone!
Conclusion: Is eating simply about flavor and getting calories? For most people it is, oddly. Most people, I regret to state, eat a low medicine diet. So food is mostly flavor and calories for them. When we add the medicinal compounds back into our meals through tonic herbs, superfoods, rich aromatic heirloom foods, and wild foods, then suddenly we have an eating experience which has a completely active effect on our nervous system. Our body lights up with antioxidants, our immune system finally gets its receptor sights impregnated, our cellular structure fills out with the proper saturation of minerals, and just maybe the body-mind-consciousness connection gets nourished too.
So, do you need to eat chocolate all the time to experience this? No, but combining the great superfoods and herbs with chocolate is the best ‘gateway’ experience for someone to fully feel what a medicinal food lifestyle is all about. In my experience, some people just won’t feel anything until they have enough chocolate (Hehe). It’s my deep desire to help you experience this food-medicine-connection as a way of activating your life’s potential so that you can thrive, live with passion, and do what you were meant to do here. To you!
P.S. Be on the lookout for a 2 day in-person raw chocolate making/training workshop in the SF Bay Area this spring 2013.
Disclaimer: Medicinal implies ‘food as medicine and medicine as food.’ It does not imply medical. Individuals takings medications and those with known medical conditions should consult with their holistic physician before using my products, my recipes or any nutritional product. Thank you for understanding.
Take your health up a big notch daily with this quick and easy to make yet divinely tasting beverage! With only 5 ingredients (64 ingredients if you count every phenomenal superfood and herbal extract in Longevity in a Bottle) your compliance level will surely be high. Combining compliance with the best nutrition ever = you taking the right action to get results.
Easy Longevity Elixir Recipe
Put in any blender:
3 cups spring water
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
stevia extract to taste
~I like KAL stevia extract powder the best. For people who don’t like stevia much I’ll use 1/16 teaspoon. For people who love stevia I’ll use 1/8 teaspoon. Most of the time I’ll use about 3/32 teaspoon.~
Blend. Let the foam dissolve for about 2 minutes. Serve in glass and enjoy your health journey!
This one’s going to rock your world.
The research is in: Herbal tea making does wonders for your immune system, induces bliss, cuts cravings, and builds resilience to stress. That said, most people have replaced the 5000+ year old tradition of tea making with coffee, soda and really crappy beer. But if you’re reading this you know those crappy beer days are being happily phased out because making herbal tea is SO much more creative and fun, yet just as habitually simple and energizing.
I’ve made some pretty narly teas in my days. I felt so good from them, but the bitterness factor was in the “my family won’t drink this” level. I was boiling medicinal mushrooms, roots, green leafed herbs and very sour berries like schisandra berry all in one pot. Good times, still do it.
A’hem. Look, making myself and yourself healthier with bitter brews is just a small part of my mission. But the biggest part of my mission is to make really tasty (like gourmet hit-the-spot tasty) products that everyone loves AND are just as potent and life changing as the bitter stuff! Enter: My Ultimate Holiday Tea Recipe (So good, our mom’s will rave about it!)
This tea combines 2 of the tastiest teas humanity has ever created: chaga mushroom and mulling spices. Note: The ingredients are a cinch to get.
Mulling spices are nearly synonymous with pumpkin pie spice, chai spices, and wassail (a holiday alcoholic mixed drink – “Here we come a-wassailing…”) spices. You can buy organic cut and sifted mulling spice blends or you can buy each herb individually. Try you local natural food store for a blend. The basic organic mulling blend includes about equal parts:
Organic cinnamon (true Ceylon or Cassia)
Organic allspice berries
Organic dried ginger bits
Organic dried or fresh orange peel
OPTIONAL: Star anise, smaller amount of ground nutmeg, and vanilla.
I get almost all my tea making herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs.
Chaga mushroom: This mushroom breaks every rule of being a mushroom. Rule 1: Taste. Instead of the weird earthy taste, chaga tastes like vanilla extract. It actually has naturally occurring vanillin in it. Rule 2: Accessibility. You don’t have to wildcraft chaga at just the right season, you can simply order it all year ’round HERE. Rule 3: Price. When buying wild-mimicked chaga (small pieces or ground), it’s surprisingly cheap for being such a precious mushroom. And, you can brew the chaga over and over and it still keeps saturating the water with its beautiful dark brown pigments and medicinal compounds.
Why use Chaga? Chaga is the highest antioxidant whole herb ever documented. It’s about tied with the antioxidant level of raw cacao. Chaga is loaded with polysaccharides – healing sugars that rapidly improve the immune system. Chaga is the quintessential herb of Russia that Russian scientists continue to study and use themselves. Out of all the medicinal mushrooms, Chaga seems to be in second place – Reishi mushroom taking first prize in all around health benefits. Learn more about chaga and reishi in my article about them HERE.
The Ultimate Holiday Tea Recipe in 3 easy steps:
1. Place a handful of mulling spices and a handful of wildcrafted chaga mushroom (small chunks, cut and sifted, or granules) into your pot. Add spring water and simmer for 15-30 minutes or more. Add more water if brewing for more time – it’s okay to brew longer.
2. Let cool slightly (not burning hot, just very warm) and pour through a very fine strainer (or nut mylk bags) into a ceramic mug.
3. Add a tiny pinch of sea salt and a few pinches or drops of stevia extract to taste. Taste test and serve to everyone (You don’t even have to tell them how healthy it is!) for the best holiday cheer as we advance into the new year!
For those of you not satisfied with just chaga and mulling spices (and you know who you are), you can add in my new product Longevity in a Bottle. Simply add in 1-3 teaspoons while the tea simmers. It will impart a bit of a root beer flavor to your holiday tea but it won’t throw off the flavor. Yes, you can heat/cook/simmer Longevity in a Bottle without messing with its properties. It’s a good and fun idea actually. Enjoy!
To you taking your health to the next level throughout the holidays this year!
My new website, LongevityPower.com, for my new company, Longevity Power Inc. has launched, thanks to the unending support of my fans. You have kickstarted my company with pre-sales of Longevity Power’s first signature product, Longevity in a Bottle – 60 of the world’s greatest superfoods and herbs concentrated into the ultimate elixir of health.
I made Longevity in a Bottle as the go-to product for longevity, beauty, and energy, so that you can get the best of the best without having to shop around. When added to your smoothie it makes the smoothie ritual go a heck of a lot faster (e.g. 1 Longevity in a Bottle ingredient rather than 10+ separate ingredients!)
Make your dreams come true,
Herein describes the ingredients of my new leading-edge nutrition product, Longevity in a Bottle, and why I chose a whopping 60 of them.
Longevity in a Bottle is designed to de-stress you, give you long-burning energy, nourish your immune system, revitalize your cells and promote longevity like nothing else you have ever experienced. To do this, I’m not going to rely on just one great superfood or one great tonic herb, but rather the many greatest superfoods and herbs from the greatest ancient nutritional systems from around the world.
I have lived the last several years of my life consuming these herbs and superfoods in various forms. I chose to take very potent extracts of my favorite (and historically, the favorite of these top medicinal traditions) and combine them into a balanced and synergistic form safe and recommended for daily use so that you can experience the benefits of these super substances your ancestors spent generations perfecting the use of. Longevity in a Bottle is one culmination of humanity’s ability to share our greatest traditions together (That’s a big part of the American dream)!
I’ll be using the word “Jing” in the definitions of many of these herbs. In Chinese tonic herbalism, jing is one of the “three treasures” of life energies that govern the vitality of your human experience. Jing is the essence of your physical body and needs to be nourished to promote longevity, sexual and hormonal vitality, and kidney health. Think of jing as your youth, and think of it metaphorically as the wax of a candle. Jing is burned daily (faster with stress), you must continue to build it up or it will eventually burn out.
Eucommia Bark Extract – Eucommia ulmoides: Made from a latexy bark. Powerful joint and tissue building jing tonic from Chinese tonic herbalism.
American Ginseng Root Extract – Panax quinquefolium: The cooling type of ginseng from North America which causes serious jing building and massive adaptability response in your body to stress, which is why ginseng is the most famous tonic herb in the west (for all the western people who experience the stress of modern western lifestyles.)
Panax Ginseng Root Extract – Panax ginseng: The warming type of ginseng from Asia. See above.
Prepared He Shou Wu Root Extract – Polygonum multiflorum: A near-black substance that richly nourishes the kidneys and causes bliss. Epic jing building herb.
Prepared Rehmannia Root Extract – Rehmannia glutinosa: Considered “the kidney’s own food” in Chinese medicine, this is the most grounding and restorative herb ever. To nourish the kidneys is like recharging your battery packs.
Astragalus Root Extract – Astragalus membranaceus: Studies show that astragalus is the quintessential herb for DNA repair. Check out my article on it HERE.
Agaricus Blazei Mushroom Fruitbody Extract – Agaricus blazei/subrufescens: One of the richest in polysaccharides (pure immune system food) of all the medicinal mushrooms.
Red Asparagus root Extract – Asparagus cochinchinensis: The “flying de-stress herb.” This bliss-inducing jing substance also makes a great aphrodisiac. Check out my article on it HERE.
Goji Berry Extract – Lycium barbarum: All the fun of goji berries but in a concentrated form rich in polysaccharides. Boosts human growth hormone and bio-potentiates all other herbs and food consumed with it.
Turkey Tail Mushroom Fruitbody Extract – Trametes versicolor: A very well studied mushroom. It is incredible in the case of tumors and does wonders for liver health.
Cordyceps Mycelium Extract – Ophiocordyceps sinensis: This is an excellent jing tonic and immune system modulator. Wild cordyceps mushrooms are about a $million a pound, so we grow cordyceps techie style and make a potent extract of the mycelial biomass.
Gynostemma Leaf Extract – Gynostemma pentaphyllum: This is just like ginseng in effect, but from a leaf. It’s been studied almost as much as green tea, but it has no caffeine and has lots more adaptogenic effects.
Schisandra Berry Extract – Schisandra chinensis: The 5-flavored berry. Because it contains all 5 flavors it has a broad spectrum of effects from its diverse medicinal constituents. It is considered the most well-rounded, most powerful herb in Chinese tonic herbalism.
Poria Mushroom Extract – Wolfiporia extensa: This fungus grows on the roots of pine trees. It has all the immune system benefits of a medicinal mushroom and also calms the mind and soothes digestion.
Horstetail Extract – Equisetum arvense: High highest source of bioavailable silica in nature. Silica is the beauty and youth mineral. It’s a plant, by the way. Longevity in a Bottle is a vegan product.
Red Sage Root Extract – Salia Miltiorrhizae: This herb massively increases circulation in the body.
Jujube Fruit Extract – Ziziphus zizyphus: Jujube is nourishing by itself, but has been used for thousands of years in Chinese tonic herbalism to balance and bio-potentiate other ingredients in an herbal formula thus providing for a more well-rounded effect.
Eleuthero Root Extract – Eleutherococcus senticosus: Provides a deep calm energy in the body helping the body adapt to stress and physical excursion.
Maitake Mushroom Fruitbody Extract – Grifola frondosa: More immune system food.
Cistanche Extract – Cistanche deserticola: A potent aphrodisiac and jing replenisher.
Morinda Root Extract – Morindae officinalis: Pure jing to build up your lifeforce.
Rhodiola Extract – Rhodiola rosea: One of the top cold-climate-growing herbs for athletes that builds jing and aids in the oxygenation process of the body.
Shiitake Mushroom Fruitbody Extract – Lentinula edodes: Another famous source of polysaccharides to make your immune system intelligent.
White Atractylodes Root Extract – Atractylodes macrocephala: Very revitalizing, energizing and digestion boosting.
Noni Fruit Extract – Morinda citrifolia: This is the superfruit of the Pacific coastal medicinal traditions. It’s loaded with polysaccharides and sulfur (the beauty and tissue repair mineral).
Maca Root 10:1 Extract – Lepidium meyenii: The concentrated water-alcohol extract of maca for hormone balancing and core energy.
Wild-Mimicked Chaga Extract – Inonotus obliquus: The “King of Mushrooms” is rich in antioxidants, polysaccarides and a host of other substances including melanin to support beauty and immune system robustness. Russia has done countless studies on chaga, proving it to be one of the most important herbs ever used.
Shilajit Extract: A natural mineral pitch which slowly oozes out of rock over eons is high in fulvic and humic acids which promote detoxification. The “rock invincible” (Shilajit is a Sanskrit word) is often considered the #1 herb in Ayurveda.
Organic Reishi Mushroom Fruitbody Extract – Ganoderma lucidum: The Queen of the mushrooms that builds jing while providing mental calm and focus. Rieshi “works on you” over months of daily consumption to help dispel bad habits. Our organic reishi is sustainabley grown on many different herbs (instead of logs) to increase its nutrient content and is triple extracted to attain a very high polysaccharide content.
Organic Reishi Mushroom Cracked-Cell Spores – Ganoderma lucidum: The spores of reishi are considered many times more immune system modulating than anything ever discovered.
Pine Pollen 10:1 Extract – Pinus massoniana: The stuff is magical. Pine pollen gently boost testosterone and help curb excessive estrogens in both men and women.
Organic Amla Berry Extract – Phyllanthus emblica: Rich in vitamin C and used in almost every Ayurvedic herbal formula as a well-rounding and bio-potentiating ingredient.
Organic Ashwagandha Extract – Withania somnifera: Sometimes called “Indian ginseng,” this supertonic root provides the immune system and long-burning energy support we’re looking for.
Organic Holy Basil Extract – Ocimum tenuiflorum: Also known as Tulsi, this is the ultimate vitality tonic in Ayurveda.
Organic Mangosteen Rind and Fruit Extract – Garcinia mangostana: The quintessential anti-inflamitory tropical superfood.
Organic Mucuna Extract – Mucuna pruriens: This bean pod contains a huge amount of neurotransmitter precursors, making it the happiness herb of the decade.
The following 24 freeze-dried organic medicinal mushroom mycelia grown on organic mycelienated brown rice are the “live food” portion of the formula. They are superfoods unto themselves, rich in polysaccharides. Synergized together they impart the wisdom of the mushroom kingdom onto you:

This concludes a breif introduction to the ingredients of Longevity in a Bottle.
Nothing hits the nostalgia button at the end of summer quite like fresh snow cones. But of course genetically modified high-glycemic syrup with tap water ice is too old school for us. We want low glycemic superfood herbal snow cones!
This just in: you can make them yourself at home.
First make the tonic herb syrup. This is the non-glycemic version:
-2 tablespoons spring water
-1 tablespoon reishi extract powder (for super immunity, mental calm)
-1 tablespoon astragalus extract powder (for immune system modulation, DNA repair)
-1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder (non-glycemic sweetener)
-1 tiny pinch sea salt
OPTIONAL: If you have wintergreen tincture or extract, use a tiny bit for a fully traditional root beer flavor.
Place in a mortar and pestle and lightly grind for 1 minute until all the powders are dissolved.
That syrup version is intensely herbal and rich in stevia (which I love!). If you are not used to stevia or the bitterness of some herbs like reishi, use this version:
-1 tablespoon spring water
-1 – 4 tablespoons (to taste) wholesome syrup (coconut nectar, clear agave (the most neutral flavored), sunchoke syrup, maple syrup)
-1 tablespoon reishi extract powder
-1 tablespoon astragalus extract powder
-1 tiny pinch sea salt
-OPTIONAL: 1 pinch KAL stevia extract powder
OPTIONAL: If you have wintergreen tincture or extract, use a tiny bit for a fully traditional root beer flavor.
Place in a mortar and pestle and lightly grind for 1 minute until all the powders are dissolved.
If you have an ice shaver, use that. Otherwise if you have a food processor with a regular metal blade, place a couple handfuls of spring water ice cubes and let it rip until the ice cubes are powdered.
Form the powdered/shaved ice into balls and place in small bowls. Drizzle with syrup and serve on a hot day (or a warm night!)
For an even more exotic “root beer” flavor, use Longevity in a Bottle instead of reishi and astragalus.
The herb of youth and sustained energy is astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceus, syn. Astragalus propinquus). It has been used in China for thousands of years as a whole body supertonic, that strengthens muscle and improves metabolic functions. Today, astragalus root extract has been recognized by scientists all around the world who have proved:
Astragalus extracts are immuno-modulating, rich in stress-reducing adaptogenic compounds that help regenerate cell function and healing.
- A potent extract contains astragaloside IV, one of astragalus’ most notable compounds proven to increase immune system response to many viruses and boost cell function.
- Some proprietary extracts contain a blend of molecules called TA-65, which have ben shown to have age-reversing effects, including halting the shortening of DNA telomeres, if not increasing telomere length, which increases the potential lifespan of cells in humans so that they can divide (reproduce) more times without senescence.
- It greatly relieves fatigue and is used by athletes all around the world for peak performance.
In my experience, astragalus provides a long-burning, happy energy with no come-down (I do not notice when it leaves my system). My body feels charged but not over stimulated, and my mind is clear.
BONUS benefits of astragalus:
- It’s a non-bitter, almost caramel-flavored herb. Whether it’s a potent extract powder, tincture, or a tea you make yourself, astragalus’ delightful flavor increases compliance (herbs only work when you take them).
- It’s relatively inexpensive compared to some other herbs. You can get Mountain Rose Herbs bulk astragalus on the cheap (get a few pounds) so you can make your own tea decoction everyday at home.
- A perennial, you can grow your own astragalus in your garden with just about any weather and climate condition.
- Since astragalus is a supertonic herb, it can be used daily and safely with cumulative youthening benefits over a long lifetime.
I use a high quality potent extract of astragalus root in my formula, Longevity in a Bottle. Fans of my work are raving about Longevity in a Bottle and are super excited for it to finally be launched.
Polysaccarides, Sapponins, Polyphenals, and more nutrients from herbs than you can ever get from regular food. No offense, regular food. 🙂
Check out what those top few dozen tonic herbs are HERE.
Bethanne’s (behind the camera) blog.
Top 7 Herbs to Beautify Your Skin in 30 Days Part 1 HERE.
Use prepared (not raw) rehmannia (Rehmannia glutinosa) root extract for a massive revitalization of the kidneys and nourishment of the liver and blood. When the kidneys (your body’s battery packs), liver and blood are running strong, guess what happens: the skin beautifies with it’s full natural color and glow.
Get yourself the very cost effective bulk organic prepared rehmannia slices from Mountain Rose Herbs and brew them up with spring water and a pinch of stevia on a stove and simmer for 20 minutes or more until you have a dark rich tea. Serve this tea very warm. When you drink it you will feel the lifeforce activate from the core of your being and out to your skin. Hot rehmannia tea is THE most grounding elixir ever – as long as you don’t drink too much at once or it will loosen your stool slightly. 😉
Note: Raw rehmannia extracts are also great but have a cooling and slightly less nourishing effect.
6. Red Asparagus Root
Read all about this “Flying De-Stress” herb HERE.
Prepared (not raw, just like with rehmannia the raw is not as nourishing) He Shou Wu (“Old Black Hair”)(Polygonum multiflorum) has been used by tens of millions of people in Asia to nurture beautiful colorful hair. It deeply nourishes and cleanses the organs (which always leads to nourishing and cleansing of the skin). It greatly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. SOD is a powerful antioxidant (free radical scavenger), demonstrated to have powerful anti-aging benefits in humans.
All 7 of the above herbs + 52 of the other world’s greatest tonic herb concentrates are synergized in my new beautifying product, Longevity in a Bottle. I invite you to pre-order yourself a bottle TODAY!
BONUS Beauty “Herbs:”
These are animal concentrates that behave like tonic herbs in the body, pushing the important “buttons” that create beauty from the inside out. These are generally congruent with a mostly vegetarian/vegan organic lifestyle.
Pearl: Pearl extract or hydrolized pearl has always been considered the quintessential beauty herb for women (and for men as far as I’m concerned.) It is rich in amino acids and trace minerals which nurture the delicate nuances of fantastic skin.
Deer/Elk Antler Tincture: For most people, taking deer/elk antler tincture daily for extended periods of time (but not everyday forever) dramatically recharges hormonal and endocrine health. This in turn causes your body to communicate with itself and create a very youthful look in the face over time. Because most of us come from a background of being exposed to xeno-estrogens (plastics and chemicals that mimic estrogen in the body and displace good hormones), antler extracts (tincture is absorbed the best) may be the powerhouse that someone needs to feel and behave young again.
Ant Extract: Polyrhachis Ant (considered the “herb of kings” in Taoist Tonic Herbalism) is the highest source of bioavailable zinc ever and a rich source of human active vitamin B12. Zinc and B12 get used up by stress. Having ample supply of these nutrients will leave the skin of your face looking bright and radiant, even amidst travel and other stresses.
Royal Jelly: This is the low-sugar high-nutrient honey-like-substance reserved for the royalty of a bee hive. It is a powerful beauty and longevity tonic. One taste and ~ZING!~ you will feel the power. If you can’t get it fresh and direct from a local beekeeper (it’s very susceptible to rancidity), then I recommend getting your hands on Bee Mana, the world’s first organic royal jelly powder.
Fish oil and algae oil: This is how we get those precious long chain omega-3 fatty acids that nourish the nervous system, put out inflammation, and put youth and moisture back into the skin. There are countless fish oil products out there that vary in quality, heavy metal content and ecological origin. I’ll let you do your research on that and decide for yourself what is best for you.
P.S. Playing around with individual herbs is really fun. AND, having them all together in a balanced tried and true formula that’s simple to use is even better. I’m talking about my up and coming anti-aging product, Longevity in a Bottle. Pre-order yourself a bottle NOW!
