10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy, Reduces Joint Pain, 100x More Effective Than Antibiotics and So Much More
The journey to better health continues and here is the update to The Daily Cocktail. The benefits are already beginning to take hold and I can tell a difference if my system becomes depleted of the nutrients and other elements in this mixture. It has taken some time to produce this follow up to ensure that what is reported is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Taking care of one’s health is no small task and having the proper information is a key element to success.
The ingredients that make up the base of The Daily Cocktail are almond milk, minced garlic, spirulina, black pepper, pink salt, lemon, turmeric root, ginger root, CBD oil, olive leaf extract, coconut oil (unprocessed and uncooked), nutritional yeast and a banana. These items are blended into a smoothie regardless of the other ingredients’ availability. This is the power station, and support, for the other items. Think of this as the foundation upon which the other items stand. The other ingredients change on a daily or weekly basis in order to feed my system a variety of nutrients from a variety of sources. Ingredients like kale, chard, blueberries, blackberries, kiwi, spinach and a host of others, come and go on a regular basis. A typical portion of any of these additional ingredients would be approximately 1 or 2 ounces (or 1 whole kiwi) of berries, greens and the like.
Beginning this week I will be producing the almond milk used for The Daily Cocktail. It is simple to make and is far superior to the ready-made versions, like the one pictured at the top of this article. The product featured above will no longer be used. It is cheaper and better to make it myself. Click here for the basic recipe.
Minced garlic is nature’s way saying – stay healthy! The elements found within garlic are vital to the body’s health. Not only does garlic maintain good health it prevents bad things from taking root in one’s system. Garlic is anti-infection, boosts the immune system, fights/prevents cancer, detoxes the body and fights inflammation.
Spirulina, or pond scum, is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. One negative to this green food is fish – it smells fishy and tastes fishy. It comes from water sources where fish live. The good news is when combined with all the other ingredients the fishy aspect is a non-issue – you don’t even know it’s there. The benefits certainly outweigh this one negative. – as a caution – do NOT get this on your clothes – it has stained one of my favorite shirts.
It contains vitamins B-1(thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3(nicotinamide), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin A and vitamin E. It is also a source of potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium and zinc. Spirulina contains many pigments which may be beneficial and bioavailable
Lemon, come to find out is like a little storehouse of nutrients and improves digestion. The next time you’re at a restaurant and the waiter brings you a glass of water, don’t forget the lemon!! It’s a pretty big deal in the health of your digestive system.
Turmeric root has been studied, restudied and studied some more. With several thousand research papers on this wonder-drug it is one of the main reasons I began this venture. Turmeric root has been used for hundreds, if not thousands, of years as a spice in cooking. If you have ever enjoyed Middle Eastern, Indian or Pacific Rim nations’ foods, odds are you have come in contact with this spice. The health benefits are off the chart.
Recently it was proven that turmeric may prevent cancer, it definitely reduces swelling and inflammation. I have reached the conclusion, not through research but logic, that inflammation is one of the greatest threats to our health. Swelling/inflammation is the body being attacked by something, either internally or externally, and reacting to this attack. If there is a counter-attack, or better still a defense already in place, the aggressor has less likely a chance of doing any harm.
Here is a short list of scientifically backed studies on the benefits of this amazing root!

Ginger root is the other reason for beginning this journey. When I found out there had been some 7,000+ studies on ginger root, and that one of the many health benefits was the prevention of cancer … well, that should be enough to get anyone’s attention. The last study that I am aware of proved that ginger was 10,000x more effective than chemotherapy in attacking and killing certain cancers. It also attacks inflammation/swelling and reduces stress – two of the greatest causes of our illnesses today are stress and inflammation.
