The Molixir

Movember is here and there are people growing “the mo” everywhere to raise money for prostate cancer research. Prostate cancer is no longer a taboo subject and is on many people’s minds as November presses on.

Prevention continues to be the easiest and cheapest way to prevent this all-too-prevalent disease. Here is one of my contributions (more to come) on how to prevent prostate cancer using diet and lifestyle.

What Is A Molixir?

The Molixir is beverage specifically designed to support optimal prostate health. It combines herbs, superfoods, and supplements that have been scientifically validated as being prostate-protective.

The Molixir can be consumed daily as a meal replacement. It provides all of the essential nutrients in a highly absorbable form. It is an easy and tasty way to get a variety of ingredients into the body that directly supports prostate health.

The Molixir 

  • 1 Scoop Pumpkin seed protein powder (or any other)
  • 2 tsp. Pumpkin seed oil
  • ½ cup Pomegranate juice 1
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 droppers Nettle root tincture 2
  • 1 tsp. Turmeric 3
  • ¼ tsp Match Green tea 4
  • 2 drops Vitamin D (2000 iu) 5
  • Pinch Celtic Sea Salt
  • To taste Raw honey

Cheers!
