Longevity Tonics For Celebrating Your 200th BirthdayRecipe
My new favourite thing in the world? Medicinal morning tonics.
With science claiming that humans could start expecting to live to 200 (or 500 if you upload your brain to a machine – no thanks!), my biggest goal is to live as optimally as possible. If you don’t have your health, you have nothing, and I for one intend to be awesome and able to take on epic adventures my whole life!
I’ve been doing a lot of research the past few weeks and have come up with a delicious, frothy longevity tonic, full of free radical fighting antioxidants, brain boosting nootropics, immune system boosters, and exotic minerals. And tastes like chocolately goodness 😀
Of course I have my own lifetime supply of chaga and although the other elements might seem weird and hard to find, they’re all just an Amazon click away 🙂
Here’s the list of ingredients and benefits:
1. Wild Remedies Chaga (of course!)
Gram for gram, chaga mushroom contains the highest source of antioxidants on the planet, and Wild Remedies chaga is the most potent and easily usable chaga product on the market boasting 57% chromogenic complex (most other forms and brands contain 18-50%).
2. Sun Potion Prash
Sun Potion’s ghee (clarified butter) based, herb filled paste is da bomb!! It contains a powerful mixture of Mucuna Pruriens (mood booster), Ashwagandha (adaptogenic), Rhodiola (treats fatigue and boosts cognitive functioning), Astragalus (skin and metabolism health), He Shou Wu (a shen, or spirit herb, that works as a blood builder, promotes longevity, and reverses grey hair growth), Eucommia Bark (bone strengthening), Pine Pollen (hormone balancing) and Polyrachis Ant (mega zinc source).
3. Shilajit powdered extract
Millions of years ago as the Himalayan mountains formed, tropical forests were crushed and compacted between massive boulders. The compressed forests gradually transformed into a nutrient- and mineral-rich biomass loaded with medicinal humic and fulvic acids. As the mountains warm, India’s most prized Ayurvedic herbal remedy literally oozes from these biomass resins in the high mountain crevasses.
Since I’m a fan of powders I love Sunfood’s shilajit powder. It’s very high quality and I LOVE the smokey flavour of the product when mixed with chaga and cocoa.
I recently cut myself off from an antidepressant medication over a month ago using a psychedelic plan medicine called Iboga (see video here). Although I’ve had ZERO withdrawal symptoms or mood issues, who doesn’t want a little natural happiness including dopamine kick in the morning??
In its pure form, L-Dopa is considered to be a psychoactive chemical, and can also be used for the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease and a number of other conditions related to lowered levels of the above neurotransmitters (especially Dopamine).
As a nootropic, L-Dopa is used to combat depression and anxiety while enhancing mood and improving the ability to concentrate and focus.
Ribose is a kind of sugar that is produced by the body (yes it tastes sweet). It’s an energy powerhouse that helps with adrenal fatigue and pain associated with fibromyalgia (which I still experience from time to time).
6. Ionic Silver
A tasteless antimicrobial, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-parasitic liquid that can be taken orally or be used to flush out sinuses, as ear drops, and on the skin. I use this as a daily immunity safeguard.
7. Coconut Milk
Delicious, creamy coconut milk acts as a base for the tonic. Coconut milk is a brain-boosting healthy fat that contains essential plant based vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, Protein, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper, and is a huge source of Manganese (110% of the recommended daily intake)
8. Coconut Oil
More cognitive boosting goodness that makes the tonic more creamy and frothy when blended.
A spicy kick that aids in boosting the metabolism, waking up digestion, and providing detox support.
10. Raw Cocoa
Cocoa offers anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic, anti-carcinogenic and antioxidant qualities and has demonstrated positive effects by imparting numerous health benefits. Plus it’s chocolate deliciousness… so yeah.
