Thank you to all who supported my Longevity in a Bottle crowdfunding campaign which succesfully closed on Saturday August 11th, 2012. I will be launching our website ASAP: http://LongevityPower.com.

In the mean time, enjoy my crowdfunding video and funding project description:

 

When I was 15, I lost 50 excess pounds in 6 months by biking every weekend, eating fewer of my favorite sourdough baguettes, and introducing a handful of key superfoods into my life.

I learned at a young age that a few small actions done well can have profound results for my health and wellness. I wanted everyone to experience this firsthand!

Fast forward to 2006 (age 21). With the help of my friends I created the WildBar (http://WildBar.info), the first organic, raw, superfood-infused meal replacement bar. Tens of thousands of people like you loved its taste and bliss-enducing potency.

Today (I’m 27) I need your help with my next product launch: Longevity in a Bottle, created by my fresh company Longevity Power Inc.

Longevity in a Bottle is the first synergistic blend of humanity’s greatest 58 organic superfood and herbal extracts that for thousands of years have promoted vitality, immunity, and long-lasting energy.

Many of these herbs built your ancestor’s DNA which led to you!

Nowhere in history have these herbs been combined in one place so that you can take full advantage of the immortal traditions of Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic herbalism, Pacific coastal and island medicinal traditions, European folk herbalism, and North and South American shamanism.

And no time in history has humanity desperately needed access to the health and vigor that our ancestor’s once knew, than now! All ingredients in Longevity in a Bottle are adaptogens which promote vitality and immunity by nourishing the body’s ability to adapt to toxic and stressful environments, something we can all relate to.

We acquire and blend our elite quality ingredients while setting the organic and green standard in the wellness industry. Longevity in a Bottle is a vegan product freshly sealed in completely recyclebable amber glass bottles with metal caps, and contains no fillers or flowing agents, and is comprised only of 58 of the world’s greatest organic, wild, non-GMO and pesticide-free superfoods and herbs including extracts of:

The 2 teaspoon full serving (beginners start with a 1/2 teaspoon and gradually increase over a month) of this rich brown powder stirred into water, shaken into a nut milk, or blended into a smoothie (imparts a coffee-like flavor) once a day is all it takes to accelerate your health results that lead to positive transformation. I know you love to accelerate your health results and the way you feel every single day!

Longevity in a Bottle is the culmination of my ten years work in the organic food world. Listen closely, as I need YOUR help right now to get Longevity in a Bottle manufactured, labeled and sent directly to your body.

Pre-order your Longevity in a Bottle through my RocketHub project site. This is not an investment or charity. It is an exchange: funds from fans for rewards from me. It’s an All & More funding mechanism: if I don’t reach my financial goal I get to keep what I raise. But if I do reah my goal, I get access to RocketHub’s exciting opportunities.

If you help me surpass my goal of raising $56,800 (fingers crossed!), the additional funds will go to launching Longevity in a Bottle’s hot sister product:Immortal Aphrosidiac.

UPDATED TENTATIVE TIMELINE:

-August: RocketHub campaign ends; ingredients ordered; label designing starts.

-September: Label designing complete, online pre-launch campaign commenced.

-October: Longevity in a Bottle manufactured; rewards shipped to contributors; company launched.

The Bigger Picture: The immediate embrace of this business makes me believe that people are ready to uplevel their health and enjoy a richer life where they have more energy to pursue their passions and more happiness in their heart to live a life of love with their friends and family.

Seeing people of every age light up when they take my products, and transform from rags to riches with regard to their health and quality of life, makes me feel like I am doing my part to make life that much better… and to me, THAT is success!

 

To your greatest health,

Place in a high-speed blender:

 

1 ½ cups organic pumpkin seeds (soaked and dehydrated rocks!)

1 1/4 cup warm tonic herb tea, gynostemma tea or spring water

½ cup organic walnuts (soaked and dehydrated rocks!) (careful of bulk-bin walnuts as they are notoriously oxidized, moldy or rancid)

4 organic pastured egg yolks or for a vegan option use a couple tablespoons non-gmo soy lecithin and a few dashes of spring water and cold pressed olive oil

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cold-pressed organic 100% olive oil or organic ghee or 1/4 cup raw heavy cream

¼ cup organic raw cacao powder

1 tablespoon birch xylitol or wholesome sweeteners of choice

¾ teaspoon freshly squeeze organic lemon juice

1/2 – 1 teaspoon Longevity Power LEVITY

 

Blend lightly. Set up your fudgecicle molds and pour the vanilla malt gelato (in pitcher) and chocolate butterscotch gelato (in blender) into the molds simultaneously to create a swirl of light and dark cream. Freeze for several hours. You may also just pour into a bowl and freeze to make gelato, or use a home ice cream maker if you have one. ENJOY!

In my new video “High Fruit? Low Fruit? Or…?,” I share an insight regarding the latest Internet health debates on sweet fruit intake, high sugar/low sugar, raw food, wild food, and indigenous-style eating. I have found that you can have your ultra healthful cake and eat it too…with a little-known clever food preparation.

All ancient and modern cultures have fermented foods. They take sugar-containing foods (some foods that are  edible raw/unfermented and foods that are not truly edible until fermentation) and subject them to a fermentation process (wines, kefirs, yogurts, cheeses, beers, sauerkrauts, sourdough bread, etc.) to create a NEW food. This new food – or ferment – has gone through a biological medium (usually a symbiotic colony of lactobacilli (good bacteria) and yeasts (good fungi) that eats up the sugar and turns it into more probiotic bacteria, amino acids, B vitamins, and a huge amount of co-factor nutrients that do wonders for our health.

This is sprouted oats blended with kefir grains and spring water. This will ferment to create the base of a raw sourdough bread.

A ferment typically takes 36 hours to many months to finish depending on the ferment and thus it can do what our own intestines (which are also rich in good bacteria and yeasts) cannot because our digestive process should be 24 hours or less. For the hardcore raw food simplicity eaters who think that we can skip ferments, this is a big concept to accept.

We must also accept the fact that most agricultural food (from the farm and the garden) has undergone a multi-generational genetic change through selective breeding based on farmer’s preference, which typically makes a food bigger (less nutrient dense), sweeter (too much sugar than we need) and less bitter (not enough medicines, which act to nourish our body’s immune system, endocrine system, nervous system, etc.). On the flip side, we must also accept that a lot of wild

Master Cleanse Kefir from the book "Superfood Beauty Elixirs." (http://SuperfoodBeautyElixirs.com) Unlike the typical master cleanse lemonade which is loaded with maple sugar, this ultra-low-glycemic version is rich in coconut kefir's probiotics, B vitamins, amino acids and many co-factor nutrients.

food is often very small, not pleasantly sweet, and too high in bitters (too many alkloids can be toxic to consume strait).

Interestingly, fermentation can be a solution to rendering BOTH the agricultural foods and the highly medicinal wild foods into a more ideal food for us humans to consume: a ferment.

For example, agricultural fruits have too much sugar for most people to handle without spiking blood sugar. However, if we ferment fruits in a controlled manner we end up with a low-sugar beverage that is even more nutritious than the fruit itself. We also can take highly medicinal food and let a ferment break down some of the harsh alkaloids. Wild cruciferous (and to some extent domesticated cruciferous too like the common cabbages) have goitrogens (thyroid function suppressors), but upon fermenting them into a sauerkraut the goitrogens are broken down. The phytates (anti-nutrients that block our absorption of certain nutrients) in seeds can be broken down through sprouting (which is similar to fermentation in that you are activating an enzymatic process via soaking seeds in water) and fermenting when making seed mylk kefirs/yogurts.

Most fermented products available at your local health food store are NOT organic and are often adulterated with extra cane sugar and preservatives. Or in the case of many store-bought kombuchas,

the kombucha ferment is just not DONE yet, and thus a lot of sugar still remains to be eaten and turned into other nutrients. Organic unpasteurized sauerkrauts are easy to find, but all the other ferments are few and far between: raw kefirs, organic pure meads and ciders, organic pure vinegars (other than apple cider vinegar)…these varieties of ferments are not conveniently available for us high-quality seekers yet. Thus I hope my article and video inspire you to start making your own from scratch so that you can have a variety of ferments to add into your regimen. Do some research online and start making your own kefirs and other ferments in your own kitchen.

Lyrics:

CB: Yo, deep from the heart of Amazon herbalism
An ally at large for folks who like the cures in ‘em
This buddy of mine, can you guess who he is?
If I told you he’s the highest whole food antioxidant?
Either you stumped or you know
Based on the title of this show.
You best not be pronouncing it COCOA.

Please say hello to my little friend,
Purple beans to send from the Amaz”a”n,
Prevents bulldozing the rainforest to raise chemical cows
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!

CHORUS:
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for…

Aumm and the now power of now is how I first got into this:
Holistic living mindin’ my own business,
But in 2003 I got into raw food.
Turned 18 then, been vital since adulthood.
In 2004 I couldn’t ask for more:
Did the green powders, the nuts, seeds and sprouters.

I snuck some pieces of roasted sugarized
Chocolate, but I knew the lies, I was a doubter
‘till the day my superfood goodies order arrived
I gave myself the first dibs,
A crunch, a chew, I was feeling alive
As I experienced my first raw cacao nibs!

Raw chocolate a mineral supplement,
Highest source of magnesium, chromium, and so much more
A hero reverses the worlds mineral deficiencies
Scientific facts prove shamanistic folklore

By 2006 raw cacao powder and butter,
Came on the market to near from far
I co-created with YogiSuzi, my friend of another mother
The infamous superfoodized WildBar

Deputy Commissioner for the FDA, Michael Taylor, regarding cacao what do you have to say?

MT: I think I don’t like it at alls,
Haven’t patented or genetically modified it’s chromosomes,
But serve it with estrogenic cow milk and sugar, and I’ll give it a go.

CB: I think you’re a bigger deception than running heal-toe.

MT: Your niche of foodies need to really move on, you know
And try the ingredients that get my stamp of approval.

CB: No thanks Mike I make difference choices now,
I choose wild foods and superfoods like maca and cacao

Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for…

Now I know what you might be thinking.
Is this guy coo coo for cacao poofs?
Doesn’t he know that cacao is to theobromine as to hard liquor is to proof.
An addictive intoxicant, unnatural chemical dependency,
Surely he must be in denial of this superfood fallacy
Rest assured I’m aware of the debate
But in love and in my rational
There ain’t no room for cacao bean hate
In fact pass me some of that Arriba national.

You see, in the wild, all food has medicine in it,
These original foods have alkaloids and bitter nutrients.
They are good for our receptor sites at the right doses
I’m not saying drink liquid cacao from high pressure hoses.
Use cacao as an ingredient, a recipe addition that has buttery bitters
Then balance it with plenty of creamies, herbs and sweeteners.
You’ve just stacked the odds in your favor,
Cacao, the MAOI-like neuro-potentiator,
Please save me more for later

Mike, for ships and cosmic giggles, I give you the floor.

MT: Thanks Bates. Ideally terrorists like you wouldn’t be here anymore
You’de be in FEMA’s collateral 90%.

CB: Whoa, don’t haise me bro, my raps getting’ a dent.
This is a cacao party with a positivity and an afterglow

MT: I know, but only when allowed by bill S-510.

CB: That’s been called the food fascism bill
Threatening my ability to make superfood American pies on my window sill,

MT: Bates I got a new chorus for you:

Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops

Changing our name on the television
Hiding the truth again and again
Psychopathic rulers oppress citizens
We make the orders for all the governments

Parasites stuck in our DNA
Totalitarian tiptoe is our way
A war on your mind, a war on your brain
Don’t think hard, remain innocent

Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops

Bates its time we took you out
Gonna silence you so you cannot shout!

CB: Not afraid of you and I will not pout
I got a secret weapon just open your mouth….

MT: Oh my freaking cacao goddess I feel good I think I’ll go on a hike.

CB: Holy cacao, we’re gonna let you go Mike,
For an outrageous impression, please Subscribe, Comment and Like
But seriously only if you do Like, use your mind, your discernment,
These days its more challenging to know who’s got the clearest vision,
Use this mode of communication while you can, the world wide Internet
Keep discussing, ask who can entertain the many ways of making decisions
Turn off your television.
give your throat a break of shoving down corporatism.

Go outside and touch the Earth, son,
Get some naked rays of sun,
You are the one, hon’, the superhero with the paradise dreams,
Keep your insides clean, get the natural medicine in.

Together we seek to love, experience and know
Tune in next time to the Rappin’ Irresistible Health Show!

(Chorus during credits)
