Some of the most nutrient-dense cell-protective foods on the planet are black and orange. These superfoods, herbs and traditional ingredients attain their robust color from their antioxidant (pigment) content. Black foods may look frightening, but they just contain a rich amount of longevity-inducing, energizing rare nutrients, including anthocyanins which may help lower the risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Orange foods contain carotenoids (pro vitamin A compounds) which bolster your cells and boost your body’s vitality.
This holiday season, protect your family with a variety of nature’s very best black and orange foods:

To your greatest version of yourself,
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!)

Please enjoy my FUN video of me talking deeply about and tasting my finished raw organic home-made kefirs. I made 6 of them, using many Superfood ingredients.
I hope this video inspires more of the home brewing revolution. The revolution has already begun with the popularity of making your own kombucha at home. Kombucha can be made with many different base ingredients (different sugar sources, different Superfood and herbal amendments.) The kombucha culture is similar to the the kefir culture: they are both symbiotic (mutually beneficial) colonies of beneficial bacteria and friendly fungi.
Kefir is much more versatile than kombucha, as most of the ferments we know of today (dairy kefirs, sauerkraut, sourdough bread) are effectively kefir cultures, although the term kefir often specifically refers to the culture that naturally occurs in fermented quality raw diary. If you have raw milk sitting out for a while, when it goes sour, it is a good thing. Typically, and oh-so-ironically, pasteurized milk will make a bad ferment with unfriendly bacteria when it goes sour.
The entire world is covered in a mist of kefir organisms (friendly bacteria and yeasts). That is why unpasteurized apple juice can turn (ferment) into apple cider vinegar or hard apple cider without the need of inoculating it with kefir or yeast, because the kefir was present on the skin of the apple. Grapes have the organisms on their skin too, perfect for making wine.
However, other unfriendly bacteria and molds exist everywhere also, so to ensure that they do not get a hold of your ferment and make it go off (i.e. blue mold starts growing on your brew), it is a good idea to actually amend your ferment with a kefir starter to help nature alone. Give your ferment a strong immune system with which to begin.
Kefir starters can be purchased on eBay. Search for “Organic Water Kefir Grains.”
To make a kefir (as well as other ferments like sauerkraut, seed yogurt and sourdough bread):
1. Simply start with your base ingredients (coconut water; raw dairies (if you like diary; colostrum is a great choice); vegetables and veggie juices; raw fresh fruit juices; grain and seed mixes) and place them in a sterilized glass jar.
2. Mix in your fresh kefir grains.
3. Top jar with a towel or loose lid and keep at room temperature (the colder it gets the longer the ferment takes) for a day or more.
A typical coconut water kefir takes at least 36 hours to become a fully effervescent low-sugar high-probiotic kefir. Letting the kefir sit out longer will allow it to turn into coconut water vinegar at which time the last bit of sugars get eaten up by the kefir culture to produce more lactic acid. A sauerkraut typically takes a week or so because it is not a complete liquid and the kefir organisms need more time to break down the fibrous walls of the cabbage and other vegetables to eat the sugars within.
Don’t have coconut water? Mix a quart of warm pure water (ideally spring water) with a spoonful of local honey and kefir grains. You will have honey kefir which is just as amazing and full of immunological major nutrients and trace nutrients! As you saw in my video, anything with sugar can become a kefir including all kinds of fresh fruit juices.
