Our intention with this formula is to offer you long-term energy, growth supplementation, and increased libido. In addition to the above, we have added a proprietary mixture of Amazonian, Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs that help overcome the effects of chronic fatigue; the energy you'll feel from just one serving is astounding. It is very clean and contains no caffeine, guarana or other related compounds that can give you nervous energy. Instead, you will feel a kind of activating energy. PhytoVelvet relieves hunger pangs as well, and many of our customers use it to help control binge eating. We believe that this is due to the natural superfoods and trace minerals packed in the supplement, nutrients that are missing from nutrient dificient food.
We pack our PhytoVelvet full of Marine Phytoplankton (Phyto) and tissue-regenerating factors contained in Elk Antler Velvet (Velvet) - hence "PhytoVelvet". Each jar contains about 5 grams of each of these two ingredients.
PhytoVelvet is designed to keep your body healthy, rebuild gum tissue, and increase your body's capacity to heal and regenerate. It contains a high concentration of complex minerals, herbs, and oils. Many people find this useful for cases of arthritis, chronic fatigue, low libido and diabetes.
Because we all can acknowledge that our food supply is devoid of proper minerals and micronutrients, this is an all-natural supplement to provide some of the missing nutritional pieces your body has been craving.
We cannot make any claims for this amazing product, so let your body speak for itself!
We consider marine phytoplankton to be the world's most perfect superfood. We supply it in two ways: supercharged and fermented.
Supercharging the product gives your body an incredible energy. We call it prana energy.
We then take a portion of our supercharged marine phytoplankton (mp) and ferment it using ancient microbes from the volcanic soils of Hawai'i. The results of the fermented breakdown products are so far very promising. We believe that these products are actually food for our genes-variants of nucleic acids and ATP-like energy compounds.
We provide 10 times the amount of Supercharged and fermented Marine Phytoplankton in our Life Extension Elixir. This amount is the proper amount for a to help you get the benefits of life extension, in our opinion

Elk Antler Velvet (EAV) is the fast -growing, soft carrilaginous tissue that develops out of the frontal bone of the Cervus species (which includes elk, deer, caribou, wapiti and reindeer) that rises from skin covered pedicles before it calicifies and hardens. Antlers are unique in nature and different from horns because they are naturally re-grown and cut off each year. Elk antler velvet , pumped tight with blood and pulsing with hormones, is the most regenerative mammal tissue known
, capable of growing over half an inch in one day.
Beneficial effects of EAV are reputed to be, among others, enhanced sense of well being, improved health, increased energy, improved movement, enhanced resistance to disease, increased blood flow, promotion of rapid healing in tissues and bones, relief of symptoms in arthritis and gout, and pain reduction associated with disease or injury to muscles and joints. Active ingredients have been found to include a variety of minerals, proteins, collagens, fatty acids, and glycosaminoglycans (GAG) in varying concentrations.
In China, doctors are paid only if their patients remained healthy. They are not paid for treating disease. To this end they employed a highly treasured group of medicines, known as superior tonics, to nourish life and for preventative purposes. Elk Antler Velvet , known as Lu-Rong in China, has long been prized as one of the leading life enhancing superior tonics.
Our Elk Antler Velvet is sustainably harvested
Elk antlers fall off and regrow naturally each year on each bull. In these domestic Elk, they must be taken off after the spring season or else the bulls engage in dominance fighting, resulting in death.
Antler harvest is carefully regulated by government officials to ensure prevention of stress and physical harm to the animal. No Elk are killed, hurt or drugged in the process in which our farmer harvests the elk antler velvet.
Harvesting is done by laser shearing off the antlers in a quick, pain-free fashion. Again, these animals are not sedated, insuring drug and chemical free antler velvet and elk. The antlers are then flash frozen and sent to a government run facility for microbial testing and then sent on for freeze drying into a fine powder.
These domestic Elk are free roaming in a large family ranch in Saskatchewan, Canada. By law, the herd is tightly monitored by both the federal and provincial government agencies for any signs of disease that would affect humans and/or pets.
EAV is an excellent, renewable source of chondronitin sulfate (CSA), glucosamine sulfate, type II collegen and prostaglandins. Research has repeatedly demonstrated their benefits for joint maintenance and specifically arthritis. They have exhibited the ability to restore the integrity to the joints, prevent and repair damage to and breakdown of cartilage and collagenous tissues, reduce inflammation and pain and protect and maintain the synovial membranes and fluids. Unlike the isolated combination of glucosamine and CSA, which had gained trememdous popularity of late for treatment of osteoarthritis, EAV's mix and shape of these elements make it useful for both osteo and rheumatoid Arthritis. One study showed type II collagen to significantly reduce pain and swelling 80 percent of participants with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. A recent study from China demonstrated accelerated bone fracture healing by stimulating chondrocytes (cartilage producing cells) and osteoblasts (bone synthesizing cells). Other studies show these and other components have a variety of healing contributions.
Polymeric-N-acetyl-glucosamine accelerates wound healing by as much as 42 percent by stimulating epidermal growth factor (EGF)*. In a double-blind study, Pantrocrine, a specific extract of EAV, significantly aided recovery from cervical injuries while use in animal studies enabled quick recovery from whiplash-like injuries. In addition, Dr. James Suttie, a New Zealand researcher, discovered neutrotrophin 3, a powerful nerve growth factor, in EAV.
A variety of cardiovascular benefits have been confirmed, including CSA is reversing arteriosclerosis and dramatically improving circulation. Dr. Lester Morrison reports that for some, CSA may reduce incidence of fatal heart attacks and strokes by over 400 percent. Increasing the formation and oxygen carrying capacity of red blood cells, strengthening the pulse, reducing blood clotting, and lowering of cholesterol have all been evidenced by research on EAV.
Three major areas where EAV has been well researched are: athletic and work performance, immune support and anti-aging. Investigations beginning in Russia in the 1930's, verify its capacity to hasten recovery from training and stress, enhance long-term energy, increase work capacity and endurance, build lean body mass, help lower lactic acid buildup and raise testosterone and growth hormone levels. One inquiry showed a 400 to 700 percent increase in work potential.
A variety of immune measures and activities including anti-viral action, reduced tumor cell growth, increased survival rates with rumors and greater phagocytic activity, have all been confirmed along with improved efficacy and reductions in side-effects of some anti-cancer drugs and radiation therapies. It's pedigree as a longevity aid has been and continues to be affirmed in research.
Two of the leading prescription anti-aging pharmaceuticals are growth hormone and testosterone, both of which EAV is known to increase naturally. Further work evidences reductions in cell degradation, stress responses and adrenal hypertrophy, ameliorating thyroid and gonad shrinkage, DNA protection and RVA increases and improvements in liver function, memory and learning. EAV is also known to inhibit MAO-B, an enzyme which increases with maturity and that is correlated with hardening of the arteries senility, arthritis and depression.
This formula has a basis in one of India's most famous anti-aging recipes – Chyawanprash. According to Ayurveda, Chyawanprash comes under the category of 'Rasayana' which aims at maintaining youthfulness, vigor, vitality of the body and keeping away aging process, senility and debility. It maintains the proper functioning of the cells and rejuvenates the cells. As such it also keeps away diseases.
The Rasayanas are mean to impart long, healthy, disease free life, intelligence, power of memory, youth and luster. Among all the Rasayanas, Chyawanprash is most useful and famous. It is the most popular rejuvenating Ayurvedic tonic in India having a consistency of Jam and consisting of about 35 natural herbs including Amla (Embellica Officinalis) the richest natural source of vitamin C. It works on the immune system of the body protecting body against everyday infections like cough cold and fever. Thus it is very useful in children, old persons, tubercular patients and debilitated persons."
Ascended Health Chyawanprash is VEGAN
Here is the story of how Chyawanprash was first created:
Most Chyawanprash contains Ghee (Clarified Butter from sacred Cows). Ours contains no Ghee. We use pure, unrefined coconut oil. In addition, we add Siliajit and Kaunch to our Chyawanprash.
Note: Phytovelvet elixir is sweetned with Raw Honey.
Long, long ago, there was a sage in India named Chyawan who lived in a forest. His hair was matted and he was covered with tree growth after years of meditating in one place. One day, a young princess was blindfolded and dancing in the forest when her hands touched the hair of the sage. Her father, the king, explained to the sage that it was the custom in his country that a woman could only touch one man in her lifetime, and thus requested the sage to marry his daughter. Chyawan asked if he could have two months to prepare for the wedding, for he wished to be young again so as to afford his wife conjugal bliss. Thereupon, he developed the recipe for longevity that has remained India's most popular remedy, some say for 2000 years, others since the times of the Vedas.
A Proven Recipe
Chyawanprash is a unique 'jam', a mix of 49 powerful Ayurvedic herbs with 'amla' (Indian gooseberry) as the base. The other ingredients in this traditional recipe include ashwaganda, pippali, cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon with coconut oil and agave nectar. We use no ghee (clarified butter). This magic elixir is good for all, irrespective of age and gender, and creates a harmonious synergy in the body leading to improved metabolism. To this base, we add other Western, Amazonian and Tibetan anti-aging compounds that together we call "PhytoVelvet."
Digestive and Immune System
Our basic ingredient, amla, has 30 times more vitamin C than an orange and helps in strengthening the immune system, expediting the healing process. Regular intake of our added PhytoVelvet strengthens digestion, absorption and assimilation of food, and balances stomach acids.
Heart and Brain
Our perfect blend of Ayurvedic and Amazonian herbs, and marine phytoplankton, acts as a cardiac stimulant and helps in the smooth functioning of the heart. Our complete PhytoVelvet nourishes the brain cells by supporting the nervous system and enhancing co-ordination and memory. This tonic is good for students as it increases retention and recall.
Lung, Liver and Kidneys
Regular intake of PhytoVelvet aids in the smooth functioning of the lungs by helping to maintain moisture balance in the lungs, providing new energy to the respiratory system. PhytoVelvet helps purify the blood, invigorate the liver, and helps to eliminate toxins, aiding the downward flow of energy in the body and easing constipation. This herbal jam eliminates wastes from the body without overworking the urinary system.
The holistic, traditional formula of our PhytoVelvet improves skin complexion and glow, and fights dermal bacterial infections. It also improves muscle tone by enhancing protein synthesis effectively. In addition, our PhytoVelvet enhances fertility, regulates menstruation, and helps to overcome difficulties in conception.
Our Mangosteen is carefully cultivated from an organic farm in Thailand under the most stringent conditions for this amazing superfood. Only the pericarp is taken and carefully dried & powdered under a special process that best preserves the active ingredients. This mangosteen powder contains the highest amount of activity of any commercially gotten mangosteen in the world. Many sources of Mangosteen are from fruit that are not fresh, and from the whole fruit - not just the pericarp, where the medicinal properties are concentrated.
Modern Medicinal Uses and Health Benefits:
The latest in scientific research shows Mangosteen contains a class of naturally occurring polyphenolic compounds known as xanthones. Xanthones provide beneficial effects on cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and thrombosis. Xanthones demonstrate particularly powerful antioxidant properties. Xanthones are found in a limited number of rain forest plants, but nowhere are they found in greater abundance than in the rind of the Mangosteen fruit.
Mangosteen on "Oprah"
Oprah show Monday, November 5th, 2007
"America's Doctor" Dr.Mehmet Oz, is a fan of the mangosteen. A cardiothoracic surgeon, author, and current Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic says there are a few fruits in the world that contain anti aging properties. Dr. Oz named the mangosteen fruit harvest in South East Asia as one of those fruits.
Dr. Oz said, "These are some examples that are very ancient healing tools... mangosteen, from Southeast Asia, work as very strong antioxidants, benefits used in those societies for everything ranging from sexuality to vitality and longevity." He went on to say that these ancient healing approaches really do work.
The medicinal properties of the Mangosteen fruit are derived mainly from its outer rind or peel, not from the fleshy inner part of the fruit. The rind, called the pericarp, is where powerful antioxidants are highly concentrated. The Mangosteen pericarp is about a half-centimeter thick and is green when unripe, then dark purple when ripe.
These unique antioxidants, known as Xanthones, have properties which help to heal cells damaged by free radicals, slow aging, and ward off degenerative diseases and physical and mental deterioration.
The rind of partially ripe Mangosteen fruit yields a polyhydroxy-xanthone derivative termed mangostin, also beta-mangostin. That of fully ripe fruits contains the xanthones gartanin, beta-disoxygartanin, and normangostin.
According to research reported in professional journals such as Free Radical Research and the Journal of Pharmacology, these amazing Xanthones have a remarkablly beneficial effect on cardiovascular health. They are also naturally antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. Xanthones are among the most powerful antioxidants to be found in nature.
Many of the other health benefits of Xanthones from Mangosteen pericarp can be expressed in terms of how they act against or are "anti" various serious ailments...
anti-fatigue, anti-obesity, anti-depression, anti-anxiety, anti-vertigo (dizziness), anti-Alzheimer's, anti-Parkinsonism (Parkinson's Disease), anti-allergenic, anti-seborrheic (skin disease), anti-glaucoma (eye disease), anti-pyretic (anti-fever), anti-diarrhea, anti-periodontic (gum disease), anti-pain (such as dental pain), anti-neuralgia (nerve pain), anti-arthritis, anti-inflammatory (act as cox-2 inhibitors like the pharmaceutical drugs Vioxx(tm) and Celebrex(tm), but without the deadly side-effects), and anti-ulcer (such as ulcers of the stomach, mouth, small bowel, or large bowel).
Some of the Xanthones in the Mangosteen pericarp have powerful anti-inflammatory properties which may be of interest to those who suffer the pain of sciatica and peripheray neuropathy, which cannot be effectively controlled by drug treatments. The amount of Mangosteen consumed per day may need to be increased by two or three times to support pain relief through its anti-inflammatory and cox-2 inhibitor effects.
Mangosteen fruit also shows vasorelaxant properties (causing dilation of blood vessels and increased blood flow).
With Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) and Staphylococcus aureus (Staph. A) bacteria, Mangosteen has shown inhibitory action against these harmful bacteria organisms. In addition to its antibacterial properties, Mangosteen fruit also demonstrates strong antifungal properties. It is highly effective in boosting weak immune systems.
There are several compounds found in the Mangosteen that appear to make this fruit active as a nutritional component for the body.
We don't add oxygen or ozone - we add oxygen in a much more effective, non-corrosive form.
For many years, it has been a quiet secret in modern medicine that multiple forms of the oxygen molecule (normal oxygen is O2 - two oxygen molecules covalently linked side by side) can inactivate harmful pathogens and boost the immune system. When oxygen is produced in such a way that there are many varieties of oxygen--O2, O4, O6, O8 and O10--it is known as polyatomic oxygen.
Health effects of added oxygen to your body:
Our anti-aging elixirs are infused with Polyatomic Oxygen to help your body heal more efficiently. When polyatomic oxygen comes into contact with diseased cells, pathogens, viruses, bacteria, and other micro-organisms in the bloodstream, they rapidly react, not only oxidizing and eradicating these toxins, but also stimulating the immune system and encouraging healthy new cells to regenerate.
Polyatomic oxygen, as found in the Life Extension Elixir provides much of the virucidal potential expected of healthy activated macrophages capable of producing an oxidative burst lethal to pathogens (e.g. numerous reactive oxygen intermediated, superoxide anion, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radicals and singlet oxygen reactions).
"As O2, O3, O4 & O8 has already demonstrated its efficacy in therapy applications as a germicidal, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-protozoal, anti-pathogenic & virucidal agent in human in-vivo therapeutic applications, intra- & extra- cellularly, it is imperative that the extensive research conducted to date be made available to demonstrate the phenomenal healing potential of these atomic structures of Oxygen as no micro-organism, pathogen or virus can be exempt from oxidation, ionisation, philli-electric (electro-chemical) interchanges and the denaturing of proteins. All emphasis should be deployed in these areas since all other conventional palliative pharmaceutical anti-microbial & virucidal options have resulted in the evolution of ever more drug resistant anaerobic pathogens and viruses, meaning ever more toxic and sophisticated chemical compositions being developed to counteract and overcome the 'resistance' of these anaerobic pathogens. Microbial resistance is NOT possible with Polyatomic Oxygen Therapy unless the RNA and microbial mechanisms develop suits of 'Teflon' armour. Anaerobic microbes, pathogens and viruses cannot EVOLVE a 'natural immunity' to OXYGEN ALLOTROPES - Polyatomic Oxygen Therapy."

This paper, combined with published Papers by Joel Freeburg, Carpendale, Wells/Latino, Poisz, Otto Warburg, amongst many other notable physicians and scientists in this field of Medical Science proves the non cyto-toxic effects of Poly-Oxygen in the blood and without causing 'cellysis', 'mechanical sheer' or 'haemolysis' of the patients' blood in in-vivo therapeutic applications and confirms the viability and efficacy of Polyatomic Oxygen Therapy.
Free Radicals and potential Polyatomic Oxygen toxicity
This is a concern to many - if Oxygen metabolites create free radicals in our bodies, aren't they dangerous? In brief, yes - to pathogenic organisms that have no defense for it, but not your normal cells that are not infected. Here is why:
A healthy body has antioxidative defenses that protect cells from potentially harmful effects of normal levels of reactive oxygen metabolites, including the endogenous free-radical scavenging enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and glutathione peroxides. These antioxidative enzymes comprise the first line of cellular defense against oxidative injury. They function to decompose the precursors, superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide, before they interact to form the more reactive cytotoxic radical, hydroxyl radical.
Moreover, a second, non-enzymatic defense against oxygen free-radicals exists to scavenge those that escape decomposition by anti-oxidant enzymes. Some of the more well known non-enzymatic molecules include alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, vitamin A, ascorbate (vitamin C) and sulfhydroxyl and thioether compounds. In other words, the anti-oxidants act as a sponge for the free radicals that don't attack pathogens.
At Ascended Health, we provide the highest natural versions of anti-oxidant molecules: Mangosteen, Amla, Olive Oil, Coconut oil and other superfoods high in natural antioxidant activity. We feel that these are much more effective at "mopping up" excess free radicals than synthetically created Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin A because anything man-made cannot be as well recognized and therefore utilized in our bodies as natural products that have been here for ages.
Kaunch is an herb seed used in Ayurvedic medicine. It increases testosterone, increases libido, reduces spasms, lowers blood sugar, lowers blood pressure, increases urination, relieves pain, reduces inflammation, kills parasites, calms nerves, reduces fever, and lowers cholesterol. It is also used as an aphrodisiac, spermatogenetic, androgenic, retentive, L-Dopa alternative, menstrual promoter, uterine stimulant, nerve tonic, anti-Parkinson's, hypoglycemic, anabolic etc.
In addition to its aphrodisiac properties, this herb has been found to produce an antidepressant effect in patients suffering from depressive neurosis. Due to the high concentration of L-dopa in the seeds, it has been studied for its possible use in relieving Parkinson's disease. Kaunch is now being considered as an alternative to the pharmaceutical medication Levodopa. In one case study it was given to a Parkinson's patient for 12 years instead of a pharmaceutical medication, and was found to slow the progression of symptoms (such as tremors, rigidity, slurring, drooling, and balance), and to have none of the side-effects of the current pharmaceutical L-dopa drug. Numerous in vivo studies also have been conducted in rats and humans. In addition, a (2002) U.S. patent was awarded on kaunch, citing its use "for the treatment of disorders of the nervous system, including Parkinson's disease."
It also has reported growth hormone and anabolic stimulant properties due to its ability to increase testosterone. In 2002, a U.S. patent was filed on the use of kaunch to stimulate the release of growth hormone in humans.
Blue Lotus Flowers
The Blue Lotus was traditionally used to relieve pain, increase memory, increase circulation, promote sexual desire, and create feelings of well being, euphoria and ecstasy, without the use of narcotics.
The Blue Lotus is believed to contain aporphine and nuciferine, natural alkaloids, and has been used as a hypnotic, sedative, euphoric and anti-spasmodic. By itself, Blue Lotus produces an opiate-like intoxication, and was traditionally smoked or drank after soaking the dried flowers in warm water or wine.
Ancient Egyptians used Blue Lotus flower as a strong aphrodisiac, as well as for medicinal purpose in order to stimulate blood flow and as an anti aging treatment. Indians and Buddhist highly respected the flower for its visionary properties. Blue Lotus has traditionally symbolized the origins of life.
According to recent studies, Blue Lotus (Nymphaea caerulea) was found to be loaded with health-giving phytosterols and bioflavonoids. It turns out to be one of the greatest daily health tonics ever found.
Blue Lotus, as found in the Life Extension Elixir, provides a relaxing euphoric sensation, and may help relieve muscle spasms. This flower creates a feeling of well-being, euphoria and ecstasy.
Lemurian Crystal ORMUS
Ormus is the ground quartz, tourmaline, onyx, agate and moldovite crystals that contain nano-amounts of gold, silver, iridium, palladium, platinum and rhodium. Studies point to its ability to increase the capacity of each cell to conduct electrical impulses, almost like a high performance re-wiring for the entire body. The pure powder is taken dried under the tongue or mixed with water to produce an effect of cellular super-conduction.
These Lemurian crystals are found in an ancient meteorite bed thought to be over 1.6 billion years old, and are the basis for the imprinting for the oral elixirs.
