chyawanprash: Commonly eaten health food in India. A jam-like mixture of herbs, spices, fruit, roots, barks, seeds and flowers from the Ayurvedic tradition. It is widely used in India due to health benefits. Contains a variety of synergistic phytochemicals indicated to fight off aging.
So guys, I've decided to create a custom longevity jam, loosely based on indian tradition, but consisting of botanical superstars from around the world in optimal proportion. I would like your help in choosing these herbs. . A few spoonfuls every day should provide a hefty dose of beneficial phytochemicals in their most absorbent and potent form. Enjoy it with your megamuffins. Here's the list so far:
seeds: (ground up, cooked partway with fruit)
leafs: (hot water extract+some ground up leafs)
sarsparilla, jamaican (if obtainable)
