It’s not Magic Mushroom, it’s Cordyceps Mushroom

Cordyceps benefits

 

Habitat and origin:

Cordyceps is a fungus mycelium which normally develops in the body of the caterpillar Hepialus Fabricius. Its aerial part (the peg), which has the shape of a finger (from 4 cm to 11 cm long) develops after the death of the insect in a sort of extension of the body. It is found under the trees in the high mountains of China (over 4000 m). Nowadays, the mycelium is grown on a substrate made ​​of rice. There are at least 10 strains of cultured Cordyceps. The two strains that have been the subject of more studies are Hepiali Paecilomyces (Cs-4) and Cephalosporium Sinensis.

Dosage of Cordyceps:

Traditionally, it is recommended to take from 5 g to 10 g of fungus powder per day. In studies, it has often used an extract of cultured Cordyceps (Paecilomyces Hepiali strain Cs-4), at a rate of 3 g per day. Consult a practitioner trained in Chinese medicine for personalized treatment.

On the market, Cordyceps is easily available in its “natural” form in Chinese herbal medicine, but the powdered extracts are harder to find.

History of Cordyceps:

The Chinese used the cordyceps for about 1,000 years. Because of its rarity, it was mostly reserved for the Emperor and his courtiers. Traditionally, in Farcissait duck, we drank to invigorate the body and ensure longevity.

In China, this fungus is known to promote sexual vigor, both in women than in men. In Chinese medicine, it is used to treat tuberculosis, coughing, anemia, back pain and knee and to help convalescents rebuild their forces. The Chinese ascribe similar to ginseng adaptogenic properties, that is to say that it would increase overall resistance to stress.

The use of cordyceps has spread in China when it began to grow on a substrate of rice. Products that draws come in various forms: dried mushroom powder, aqueous or alcoholic extracts prepared from the aerial parts or mycelium. There is such a traditional preparation (Jinshuibao) composed of the product of the fermentation of the mycelium. Traditionally, various culinary recipes cordyceps and meat (pork, duck, chicken) had specific uses: opium addiction, recovery, anemia, impotence, etc.

The West began to take an interest in cordyceps in the early 1990s, when the victories won by Chinese athletes in running were attributed to the fact that they ate this fungus.

Research on Cordyceps:

The majority of studies on cordyceps was done in China and many of them are not listed in MedLine. The strain most often studied is the Hepiali Paecilomyces – Cs-4. In addition to the Cordyceps Sinensis variety, Asian researchers are interested in the variety cultivated C. Militaris, which appears to have substantially the same properties.

Sexual stimulation effectiveness: A few double-blind studies with placebo (not listed in Medline) were conducted in China. They focused on hundreds of subjects and suggest that cordyceps, at 3 g per day, is effective in stimulating a poor sexual function.

Physical energy Increase (adaptogenic effect): Three trials in China in 1995 and 1999 (not listed in Medline) indicate that 3 g of cordyceps daily have been successful to increase the vital and physical energy and the elderly subjects with chronic heart disease. A study published in 2010 involved 20 patients aged 50 to 75 years: These preliminary data indicate that the use of cordyceps has greatly improved their physical performance.

Effectiveness on Respiratory Diseases: Results of clinical studies conducted in China indicate that cordyceps may be helpful in relieving symptoms of many respiratory diseases, including chronic bronchitis and asthma.

Traditional use in Chinese medicine: Numerous studies in vitro and in animal seem to confirm some of the many traditional uses of cordyceps. For example, support convalescents, boost the immune system and sexual and strengthen the functions of the kidney, liver and lung function. In addition, several clinical studies conducted in China point to a protective effect on certain organs, including the kidneys.

This superfood may protect the kidneys against the toxic effects of certain drugs and stimulate their functioning in patients with renal insufficiency. It might also be helpful in reducing the risk of rejection and complication after renal transplantation. Combined with Artemisinin, Cordyceps could also reduce the recurrence of kidney disease, kidney disease which frequently affects people with lupus.

Precautions:

In 1996, a Chinese researcher reported 2 cases of lead poisoning from the consumption of cordyceps. So it is better to focus on products subject to strict quality controls.

Side Effects:

Some cases of dry mouth, rash, drowsiness, nausea and diarrhea have been reported.

Interactions:

  • With plants or supplements: None known
  • With drugs: Theoretically, the effects of cordyceps could be added to those of immunosuppressant (such as cyclosporine).

6 Foods that Makes You Smart

superfood that makes you smarter

The brain weighs only 2% of our total weight, but it is very demanding and requires a balanced diet and carefully selected to operate and to be on top. Discover the 6 foods to add to your diet to become smarter!

Fatty fish:

The brain loves omega 3. More than half of the mass of the brain is composed of lipids, 70% are fatty acids, omega 3. They are essential in the activity of neurons and play an important role in memory. Sardine, mackerel, herring, salmon, Hemp seeds and Chia seeds or nuts give you omega 3. To include in your menus at least 2-3 three times a week.

Legumes:

The brain spends a lot of energy to operate; it is a major consumer of sugar. It’s bad to nourish it with fast sugars that peaks our glucose levels, make us gain weight and unpleasant for the brain which doesn’t like sudden variations. That’s why we tend to privilege the slow sugars of legumes (lentils, chick peas …), and cereal.

Chocolate:

Rich cocoa flavonoids stimulate blood flow to the brain and thus helps boost cognitive performance; but it is primordial to eat raw unprocessed chocolate, otherwise we won’t get the benefits of cacao.
High numbers of sulfur in addition to magnesium in raw chocolate, essential for the body’s appropriate functioning, by natural means increase focus and encourage alertness. Magnesium is the most effective stress-relieving mineral. Neurotransmitter modulating agents found in raw organic and natural cacao, such as serotonin, are chemical compounds that can act as natural antidepressants.

Red fruits:

Strawberries, schizandra berries, raspberries, goji berries, acai berries, blackcurrants … It is full of red fruit to cure vitamin C and beta-carotene an antioxidant that attacks free radicals, toxic substances that damage our cells.

Seafood:

The brain fights anxiety, fatigue and nervousness with trace elements (manganese, copper, lithium, zinc and iodine). To refuel, think seafood also provide vitamin B12 and protein, especially lysine, a powerful neurotransmitter.

Offal:

Our brain is very greedy oxygen. It consumes almost 20% of this molecule in the human body. But to bring this resource to the brain, our body needs iron. This nutrient also promotes good memory and good concentration. If it is found in spinach, it is also highly concentrated in organ meats. The liver also has the advantage of being rich in B vitamins that enhance cognitive function. A good example of offal would be Desiccated Liver.

What to Avoid:

Saturated fats are the enemies of the brain. They are mostly found in butter, cream, sausages, fried.

To protect our brain, we limit the consumption of bad fats. But to really take care of our brain we must avoid tobacco which can cause deficiencies in vitamin C, reduces alcohol consumption which decreases the absorption of vitamin B (B6 and B9). And stress which leads to a lack of magnesium. We obviously do not forget to intellectually stimulate our brain and practice physical activities for cognitive development.

Five Ways To Add More Fruits & Vegetables To Your Diet

superfood recipes - my healthy outlet

The Harvard School of Public Health recently published a list of tips to help individuals struggling to eat enough fruits and vegetables every day. Perfect Supplements heartily agrees with their ideas and would like pass them on to you with some suggestions of our own.

1. Keep fruits and vegetables out on the counter or on the top shelf of your fridge. If it is out in plain sight, you are more likely to grab and go. Apples, bananas, grapes, carrot and celery sticks are excellent choices to have on hand. 

2. Try to incorporate some fruit and vegetable into every meal. Fruit in your cereal or a veggie omelet for breakfast, fruit in your salad or added vegetables in your soup for lunch and a vegetable stir fry or fruit parfait at your evening meal. An orange or apple at snack time is highly recommended over chips and other salty snacks loaded with empty calories. Always choose fresh or frozen over canned or dried because of the added sugar.

3. Explore the produce aisles at your local grocery store or farmer’s market and try one new fruit or vegetable every week. There are so many tasty and interesting choices and you may be pleasantly surprised to discover that you like mango and brussel sprouts.

4. Eat a variety of different fruits and vegetables: dark leafy greens such as spinach or kale, orange vegetables such as carrots or squash, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli or cabbage, legumes such as black beans, citrus fruits such as oranges or grapefruit, berries, grapes, etc. The Harvard report said to “bag the potatoes” and choose vegetables with more nutrients. Potatoes are very high in carbohydrates.

5. Try some healthy new recipes that use more vegetables and fruits. There are some wonderful vegetable casseroles, delicious fruit and vegetable soups, and dozens of different fruit salad combinations. For a delightful change we like to add mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, sliced kiwi or strawberries to our salad greens. We top it with a sweet salad dressing and a handful of sunflower seeds or slivered pecans, walnuts or almonds. Delicious!

If you are like most Canadians, you probably are not getting the recommended amounts. That’s why Perfect Supplements creates all natural, organic and freeze-dried superfood supplements such as Perfect Aquatic Greens and Perfect Acai Berry. The easy way to add the benefits of more fruit and veggies to you diet.

Our busy hustle and bustle lives can benefit from eating more nutritious food like fresh fruits and vegetables that are known to be a natural source of energy and essential in preventing certain diseases. Why not have some beautiful green spinach, juicy red tomato, luscious purple plum, or yummy red apple with your next meal?

The Truth About Raspberry Ketones

Raspberry Ketone

When Dr. Oz stated that Raspberry Ketones were “The #1 miracle in a bottle to burn your fat,” supplement industries capitalized and consumers went wild. Because of the hype created by the show, everyone seems to want to get their hands on this “miracle” supplement. Perfect Supplements often receives messages from customers asking if we carry a Raspberry Ketone supplement. The answer to that question is no, and this article is designed to explain why.

The saying that you can’t believe everything you hear is especially true when it comes to the supplement industry. Raspberry Ketones are said to be an all natural weight loss supplement created from real red raspberries. In reality, most Raspberry Ketone supplements are synthetic and made WITHOUT raspberries. More shockingly, there have been zero studies conducted on the weight loss effects of Raspberry Ketones on humans.

Raspberry Ketone is an antioxidant found naturally in red raspberries. What supplement companies don’t tell you is that Raspberry Ketones can be manufactured synthetically, for a fraction of the cost. In fact, red raspberries only contain trace amounts of Raspberry Ketones and therefore it is extremely expensive to extract Raspberry Ketone from actual red raspberries. To cut costs, supplement companies use Raspberry Ketones that are mass produced synthetically. Although marketed as all natural and derived from real raspberries, this is simply not the truth. The truth is that most Raspberry Ketone supplements are 100% synthetic. Perfect Supplements would never sell or recommend a synthetic supplement to anyone.

Perfect Supplements only sells products with pure and proven ingredients backed by clinical research. There are only two known studies conducted on the effectiveness of Raspberry Ketones for weight loss. One study was conducted on mice and the other on fat cells in a petri dish. These studies were not placebo controlled, and both studies failed to show any significant weight loss effects. There has not been a single study conducted on the effectiveness or safety of Raspberry Ketones as a weight loss aid for humans.

Most manufacturers claim that Raspberry Ketones are all natural and free from harmful side effects. Again, this is simply not true. As stated earlier in the article, most Raspberry Ketone supplements are created synthetically. Products containing synthetic ingredients are known to cause a host of unwanted side effects.

Alarmingly, Raspberry Ketone is chemically related to a stimulant called synephrine. This stimulant causes jitters, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, feelings of anxiety and insomnia. People using Raspberry Ketones have reported similar side effects.

Although there has not been a study conducted on humans, the study conducted on mice noted that Raspberry Ketones raises triglyceride levels. Raspberry Ketones could have the same negative effect on the triglyceride and cholesterol levels of humans.

It has also been suggested that Raspberry Ketones may mimic the female hormone estrogen. Due to this, it is extremely dangerous for people to take Raspberry Ketones if they have a hormone sensitive condition such as breast or uterine cancer.

Raspberry Ketones may also have dangerous drug interactions with many common pharmaceuticals. People taking antidepressants should be especially careful.

As far as Perfect Supplements is concerned, it is neither safe nor smart to recommend a synthetic product with ingredients that are not back by clinical research. It is even more dangerous to retail a product associated with so many dangerous side effects.

There is no such thing as magic weight loss pill. In order to accomplish any amount of healthy weight loss, you have to start with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. Although weight loss starts with diet and exercise, there are some supplements that may enhance your weight loss experience. Unlike Raspberry Ketones, African Mango Extract (IGOB131) is clinically proven to help overweight people reduce their weight and waist circumference. Perfect African Mango is made from 100% pure IGOB131, which makes it a highly effective and entirely natural weight loss supplement that is free from dangerous side effects. Most importantly, Perfect African Mango is backed by concrete research that proves that it works.

An Introduction in to the Raw Material

Elk Velvet Antlet - Surthrival

This is very important because this is the primary ingredient (backbone) Surthrival’s Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver.

Velvet Deer Antler Extract is one of the worlds oldest Raw Super Foods. It has been used and documented in eastern medicine for over 2 thousand years. It is considered a raw food because first of all it is a raw food, but one that is considered by many as the most nutrient dense in the planet.

Clipping the top tips of a certain type of deer’s antler creates this raw food. The deer antlers are actually the only mammalian organs that regenerate. It is along the same concept of cutting a lizards tail off. This organ grows 1 inch a day and contains all essential and non essential amino acids, hundreds of poly peptide combinations and a natural balanced matrix of growth factors with their co factor/co enzymes which prevent any imbalances and stem cells. One of the main components in Velvet Deer Antler is IGF-1. IGF-1 is essentially the end result of HGH. There has been a wealth of negative attention brought on to this polypeptide. The actual negative side effects only come from the synthetically derived versions of IGF-1 isolates (Only the IGF-1 molecule) and HGH.

Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver is an all-natural version of these polypeptides IGF-1 and HGH, there fore it will not harm you or cause any negative side effects experienced with synthetics. Also what ever your body is not using or absorbing it will excrete just as it you would with whey protein. Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver is the only 43:1 extract Velvet Deer Antler that that is standardized 100/45 mcg a bottle of IGF-1. This means that it takes 43 lbs down to make 1 lb of our extract. Avinotropin contains only antler tips because they contain the highest concentration of growth factors and other beneficial constituents. We then extract it into 100% organic grape alcohol. The reason for this is so it strengthens the product, acts as an all-natural preservative and helps to stimulate the glands under tongue responsible for absorbing sublingual tinctures. When taking this product you will hold it under your tongue so it may directly pass into the blood stream. It is important to take polypeptides under your tongue and the reason is that polypeptides like IGF-1 breakdown in your digestive tract and become just free form amino acids.

Immortal Velvet is also bottled and delivered in all an all Miron glass environment, this prevents the poly peptides from binding to things like plastic containers, if this formula was bottled in a plastic container with in a year it would not contain a single growth factor in it. The Miron glass is also light sensitive, which is used to enhance the Bioactivity and life span of the living antler tips.

The reason it is standardized is so we can deliver the same exact amount of growth factors per bottle every time. Since the level on constituents varies with each batch of antler, it is vital to have each batch tested for levels of constituents. Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver marker levels are the IGF-1 molecules.

Immortal Velvet feature elements:

  • Made exclusively from herds of free-range elk in the U.S.
  • Humanely harvested, we never use “cutting rooms”, tourniquets, anesthetics, or tranquilizers on our elk
  • Concentrated 43:1 before extraction, yielding the highest potency
  • Extracted in orgranic grape ethanol for maximum quality and absorbability
  • Bottled in superior Violet Miron Glass for maximum freshness, stability and storability
  • Our organic grape alcohol delivery system ensures that growth factors are optimally absorbed
  • Available in three strengths: Gold, Silver and Platinum with Tribulus. Same product, different concentrations

Differentiation of Concentrations

All of our Immortal Velvet products are based on our proprietary 43:1 extract. Through sublimation we are able to concentrate our raw velvet antler material 43 times.

This means that 43 pounds of raw velvet antler tips are concentrated down to just one pound of our dried extract. One and a half grams of this 43:1 extract goes into our 1 oz. bottle of Immortal Velvet Platinum, 1 gram of our 43:1 extract goes into every bottle of Immortal Velvet Gold and nearly a half gram goes into each 1 oz. bottle of Immortal Velvet Silver.

Another way to say this, is that our Immortal Velvet Platinum contains 1,500mg of our 43:1 Elk Antler Velvet extract, our Immortal Velvet Gold contains 1,000mg of our 43:1 Elk Antler Velvet extract and our Immortal Velvet Silver contains 450mg of our 43:1 extract of Elk Antler Velvet.

Because of the different amounts of our 43:1 extract in each formula, the amount of IGF-1 per bottle differs as well. The Immortal Velvet Platinum has 50mg of Antler Velvet per dose and yields 150mcg of IGF-1 per bottle. Our Immortal Velvet Gold has 33-36mg of Antler Velvet per dose, which yields 100mcg of IGF-1 per bottle. The Immortal Velvet Silver has 14-16mg of Antler Velvet per dose and yields 45mcg of IGF-1 per bottle.

What do growth factors do?

Insulin-like Growth Factors 1 and 2 (IGF-1 and IGF-2) IGF-1 and IGF-2 increase lean body mass, reduce fat, build bone, muscle, and nerves while assisting in glucose metabolism. Research indicates that IGF-1 encourages the absorption of both chondroitin and glucosamine sulfate. Research also shows that a decline in IGF-1 levels is among the causes of bone disorder development. IGF-1 is considered by many scientists to be a marker in overall growth hormone status. IGF-1 looks and acts enough like insulin that your cell receptors may become suppressed, causing growth hormones to release stored fat. Through this mechanism, cells will use up fat rather than sugar or other carbohydrates. IGF-2 promotes tissue growth and is expressed primarily in embryonic and neonatal tissues.

5 UNCONVENTIONAL TIPS FOR A FLAT STOMACH

5 Unconventional Tips for a Flat Stomach

Stop Dieting – Counting calories has NEVER worked for me. Instead of counting calories, pay attention to the QUALITY of the calories you consume. At least 80% of your total caloric consumption should come from local and organic whole foods that you prepare yourself. Limit intake of processed foods to 20% of your daily calories and try not to stress about consuming a certain number of calories per day. Refrain from eating diet foods as well. Chemical sweeteners found in diet foods, such as aspartame, are incredibly dangerous and actually cause the body to store even more fat.

Take Probiotics – When your digestive system is lacking beneficial bacteria, digestion slows down significantly leading to bloating and other digestive issues. Taking a probiotic supplement, especially those that are soil-based, can decrease bloating which will make your stomach look significantly flatter.

Stretch Your Hips – Tight hip flexors can lead to an overdramatic lumbar curve. This lumbar curve pushes your stomach outward making it appear more round than it actually is. The hip abductor machine can be a great way to stretch these muscles, just be careful not to overdo it. A simple yoga class or session with a physical therapist, chiropractor, or personal trainer will provide more great tips for stretching your tight hips.

Start Strength Training – Many people believe that the secret to toning and weight loss is cardio. Simply put, many people are wrong. In order to tone and build lean muscle, you must incorporate strength training such as weight lifting into your workout schedule. Strength training will help create the flat stomach you are looking for by building and toning lean abdominal muscles. Strength training not only builds lean muscle, it also increases your metabolism leading to overall weight loss.

Eat More Fatty Foods – I’m not talking about greasy fast food, people. The healthy fats found in nuts, seeds, avocados, and healthy oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, and fermented cod liver oil can help to increase the body’s natural ability to burn fat as energy. Healthy fats such as those listed above can be especially helpful in decreasing body fat around the midsection.

For an extra weight loss boost, try supplementing your diet with Perfect Green Coffee. This all natural weight loss supplement contains powerful antioxidants such as chlorogenic acid. Clinical research suggests that the chlorogenic acid found within Perfect Green Coffee restricts the amount of glucose released into the body, forcing the body to burn fat as energy. This may lead to an increase in metabolism and natural, healthy weight loss; and it’s decaffeinated, with no stimulant side effects.

Centenarian Diet, live longer, longevity

I came across an article about the “Centenarian Diet” last night and it really picked my attention so
I thought I’ll share it with you.

Let me start by defining “Centenarian”: it is simply any person who lives over 100 years old.
Do you want to become one of the 53,364 American Centenarians? Then you should follow their strict diet, below are a few guidelines:

  • Eat 7 servings of vegetable daily, mostly dark leafy greens, seaweed, bean sprouts…
  • They take their protein mostly from vegetables and fish with combat chronic diseases like cancer.
  • Their diet consists of up to 70% sweet Potatoes.
  • Drink unsweetened green tea several times a day.
  • Eat 1,400 calories daily.
  • Diet high in fiber and minerals but low in fat.
  • Eat fresh, raw, unprocessed food that delivers high level of vitamins, minerals and fiber to the body.

I am sure that now you are asking yourself: how am I going to stick to that diet with my busy lifestyle?
Well now, with the globalization more and more products like Superfoods are available and to everyone on the planet.
Now it is possible to complement your regular diet with organic supplements that will give you all the minerals, vegetable protein, minerals and bioactive ingredients to restore and rejuvenate the human body.

Two of the supplements I highly recommend are Chaga Mushroom Extract which is considered one of the best anti-aging supplements and Spirulina and Chlorella which are 2 micro-algae very rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
