Men's Tonic

It is of vital importance for men to keep their prostate healthy and fertile. Most men as they age encounter some sort of prostate condition. This walnut-size gland sitting right below the bladder is in charge of providing nourishment to the semen, overall circulation to the muscles, and elimination (ejaculation). To keep a strong virility, men need to care for their seeds and make sure they keep a fertile makeup in order to prevent any issues when aging. Saw palmetto, suma, and yohimbe are master tonics known to enhance vigor, energize, and boost potency to the prostate.


• 1 cup almond milk
• 1 cup chopped papaya
• 1 teaspoon fresh papaya seeds
• 4 rambutans,* peeled
• 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
• 1 teaspoon muira puama powder
• 1 teaspoon suma root powder
• 1/2 teaspoon yohimbe powder
• 1 date


1. Blend all ingredients together, and enjoy!

Note: In South America suma is known as para toda (which means “for all things”) and as Brazilian ginseng. Suma root has been used for generations as an adaptogen and regenerative tonic. It is also a master energizer to treat exhaustion, chornic fatigue, libido, diabetes, and cancer recovery, and as a general cure-all for many types of illnesses.

* If you cannot find rambutans, substitute 1 cup frozen blueberries.
