We will be giving our body powerful anti-aging substances that can help us to feel better and live longer by replacing non-organic coffee with organic arabica. We will probably never want to go back to non-organic, black, bitter, over-roasted again once we step up to the smooth rich taste and powerful health benefits of organic arabica.
We have included SCHIZANDRA CHINENSIS in with the organic arabica which is an energy rejuvenator.
A 2010 in vitro study from Hong Kong School of Medicine showed Schizandra to have brain protective effects against beta amyloid plaque formation which is a cardinal feature of alzheimer's dementia. And a 2010 study from Korea revealed Schizandra to have an inhibitory effect on fatty acid synthase which is an active enzyme in creating overweight and obesity.
Many also believe it improves mental clarity and performance along with a strong broad spectrum antioxidant, and that it also induces production of gamma interferon which is an important anti-viral substance in immune function. Others believe it can improve both vision and hearing. In Chinese medicine it's considered a beauty enhancing herb for women that has helped to improve the youthful appearance of their skin.
And then we included RHODIOLA ROSEA which is the king of adaptogens.
Rhodiola Rosea is known to be a strong protection of human cell function to help fight against fatigue, depression, and to increase memory and learning capacity. Also known to help protect liver function and detoxification, and may break down fat cells, along with helping to normalize all body systems during high emotional mental and physical stress. It also appears to inhibit cold and flu viruses and to improve sexual function in both men and women.
RED REISHI which is the mushroom of immortality also went into this coffee.
It has for 2,000 years been listed as the number one herb for robust health, vitality, and long life in the Chinese pharmacopoeia. For over 2,000 years Chinese Emperors have had servants seek out the rare red mushroom and reserve it only for royalty. Reishi (or what the Chinese call Ling Shi) has held the number one spot among their list of herbs that are part of the Chinese medicine and thereby considered in the superior category.
And like Rhodiola and Schizandra, Reishi's broad spectrum adaptogenic qualities is believed to help protect against all types of stress damage through an entirely different group of phytonutrients known as the polysaccharide peptides.
New York's Sloan Kettering Cancer Center reports that clinical studies with Reishi showed "increased plasma antioxidant capacity and enhanced immune responses in advanced-stage cancer patients."
