Synergistically formulated to ensure maximum bioavailability, this deeply nourishing formula has been designed for daily use, as part of a lifelong commitment towards extraordinary health.

All ingredients are produced in a GMP-certified U.S facility with rigorous testing to ensure a non-GMO status. The formula is completely free of pesticides and irradiation, while dried at the lowest possible temperature, as opposed to freeze-drying, to preserve the integrity of the nutrients and enzymes. The Ultimate Elixir is vegan certified, 100% raw and made with organic ingredients. The powdered composition guarantees the full nutritional profile of each ingredient, resulting in a naturally clean flavor with a pleasant taste.

The Ultimate Elixir contains 25 nutrient-rich superfoods and supergreens that fall under the following nutrition based categories.

Alkalizing Greens
Supergreens are powerful life-force foods and are a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including A, C, E, K and B-complex iron, calcium, magnesium and selenium.  They also contain chlorophyll, amino acids, bioflavanoids and phenolic compounds to assist in detoxification. The Ultimate Elixir contains organic wheat-grass, organic barley grass, organic kelp, spirulina, chlorella, organic alfalfa and Klamath Lake Blue Green Algae.

Immune Strengthening Mushrooms
Beta glucans in Reishi mushrooms have demonstrated immune strengthening properties. Many athletes use Cordyceps found in mushrooms for increased endurance, performance and recovery. The Ultimate Elixir contains organic cordyceps, organic reishi, organic shitake and organic maitake.

Adaptogenic and Tonifying Herbs
These nutrient-rich herbs support and maintain a health hormonal balance, provide essential fatty acids, increase cardiovascular health and stimulate overall vitality. The Ultimate Elixir contains organic maca, organic tumeric, organic ginger, chia, mesquite and organic black pepper.

Phytonutrients and Superfruit Antioxidants
Superfruits provide exceptional health benefits and are loaded with vitamins, flavanoids, phyto-nutrients and dark colored pigments that protect from the effects of pollution, oxidation and support healthy aging. The Ultimate Elixir contains organic lucuma, beet, camu camu, acai, organic goji and acerola cherry.

Now thats a lot of nutrition packed into a little bottle. I was encourage taking our “30-day Challenge” by committing to take the Elixir each day for an entire month. Since I am on prep I don't drink my greens with juice etc but what I do is mix it with minimal water. I hate drinking a big glass of greens personally for some reason and the elixir mixes well with minimal water. I then have it in the mornings with my breakfast and evenings with my last meal.

I love the taste of it because I don't like greens that taste too fruity or green and I find that the elixir isn't too potent and quite enjoyable. I think that the elixir is a great source to go to for green supplementation. I always prescribe a greens drink to all of my clients and this will definitely be my go to from here on out.

For a greens product I would give this powerful elixir 10/10. Its not too green tasting, not to sweet and full of tons of benefits and antioxidants.

Thanks again Live Ultimate for sending me The Ultimate Elixir! It's my favourite greens drink to date!

Six Plant-Based Foods You Should Try Today
By Vanessa Chamberlin

Fire Driven Life Book Cover
The glorious thing about plant-based eating is that your grocery store or farmer’s market is full of an incredible array of foods, flavors, and textures that are just waiting to be discovered. Even a typical grocery store has a produce section that carries seasonal and ethnic foods that often get passed-over, but are convenient, inexpensive, and yummy.

If you’re stuck in a rut of getting the same lettuce-tomato-onion-type foods that you always get, take a walk! Look at some of the other plant-based foods and see how you can work them into your diet.

Not sure where to start? In the spirit of a number that signifies longevity, here are six plant-based foods I totally love that are healthy and tasty, but not part of the average diet. What are some delicious food discoveries you’ve made and put on your grocery list each week?


Jicama, also known as a Mexican potato, is a big, heavy, brown fruit that really does look like a weird potato. The excellent thing about jicama is that it is very crisp and crunchy, but has a mild flavor like a cucumber. Jicama can be sliced and used with dips as an alternative to chips, eaten in sticks like any other crunchy veggie, or added to salads for a snappy texture without confusing the flavor profile. It’s a great summer side dish served with a spritz of lime juice and a dusting of chili powder if you’d like a little kick!

Bok Choy

In Asian cuisine, bok choy is a staple! For most of us, though, we’d never think to work bok choy into a dish, which is unfortunate because of how versatile and healthy this veggie is. Bok choy can be added to a salad, but it can also be eaten like you’d eat celery with a little hummus or nut butter. It can also be added to soups or stir-frys, or braised or grilled on its own, and given a little seasoning to become a brilliant side dish.


Pluots are an incredible, juicy little snack that comes from mixing a plum with an apricot. They’re so good! Plums aren’t terribly uncommon, but not a lot of people are familiar with pluots. It’s a shame because they’re easy to carry in a lunch for you or for your children, they’re a little sweet with the benefits of both plums and apricots, and they’re another inexpensive fruit. They might be seasonal depending on where you live, but look for a fruit that’s a little smaller than a plum, and more yellow, in the plum area of your grocery store.


Rutabaga is popular in some countries around the world, but it frequently gets forgotten in the US. With a little bit of a punch like a radish, rutabaga is an awesome root vegetable. If you like the spicy snap of it, it’s great to be eaten as a raw veggie. Others would enjoy rutabagas along with things like potatoes, parsnips, and squash in a cold-weather harvest stew!


A lot of people feel strange about eating cactus, but prickly pear cactus (also known as nopal) tastes great and is SO good for you! It can have positive effects on blood sugar and managing diabetes, and it can help lower cholesterol. I suggest buying it cleaned already because the spines can be difficult to deal with if you’re new to the food, but many average grocery stores (and I imagine every Mexican or Hispanic market) carry cleaned nopal ready to cook. Similar in texture to something like a green pepper, nopal is great in dishes like scrambled tofu, or really anything sautéed. It tastes like other green veggies (think green peppers or green beans) with just a little lemony tartness. It goes really well with spicy dishes.

Dandelion Greens

The wonderful world of leafy greens leaves us with plenty of options at pretty much every grocery store, but dandelion greens aren’t something most people eat every day. The green leaves are great in salads and slaws, but they can also be boiled like spinach or sautéed and seasoned. They’re just a little bitter, but fun to try, and you can even forage for them if you’re really up for an adventure!

When people tell me that they don’t do plant-based eating because they don’t want to limit themselves, I have to laugh. People limit themselves all the time! Even with great options and an endless menu of flavors and colors, most people fall into a routine of eating the same things all the time. This is your wake-up call to use plant-based eating as a way to EXPAND your diet, and bring in fantastic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and beans that you otherwise never would have enjoyed.
