High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) provides industry standard food safety while protecting vital active enzymes and nutrients. HPP is the most successful food safety development of natural, organic, preservative-free functional products. It is considered “raw” pasteurization because it does not utilize traditional heat pasteurization which can destroy vital enzymes. Tumeric Elixirs and Pure Prana undergo 87,000 lbs of water pressure technology instead of heat to preserve essential nutrients and enzymes while inactivating harmful pathogens that cause spoilage.

Beverages Winner: TumericALIVE ~ Vegan Coconut Nectar Elixir
Vegan Coconut Nectar Elixir extends the benefits of the original elixir from TumericALIVE by adding coconut oil and black pepper to helps enhance the bioavailability of turmeric root’s active phytochemical, curcumin. Turmeric has been used traditionally in Indian Ayurvedic medicine, and research has suggested a wide range of potential health benefits associated with curcumin including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. The drink uses coconut nectar as a natural low glycemic sweetener that includes vitamins, minerals and amino acids for extra nutrition.
Story by Lauren Montgomery of Find Healthy Living: Tuesday, October 11th was the first ever NYC Underground Yoga event. This two hour Jivamukti style yoga class was taught by Rima Rani Rabbath and sponsored by TumericALIVE, Well Fed NYC, Lululemon Athletica and Love Grace Foods.
Jivamukti has a very specific approach to yoga as a means to enlightenment and it has had a strong following internationally for almost 20 years. The beautiful practice inspires self-reflection and setting intentions. It’s is not just yoga for exercise and stress relief – but those are excellent benefits as well! One of the goals of this event was to raise funds for The LowLine: a project intending to transform an abandoned, underground trolley terminal in the Lower East Side into a green space for the public to enjoy like any other outdoor park. It will utilize solar technology to light this below street level area with natural sunlight.
Upon arriving well in advance to the event location at the famous Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts center, there was a buzzing line already forming for this much-anticipated event. Everyone seemed to know we were in for an extraordinary experience. Friends and yogis greeted each other on Norfolk Street where the energy was palpable even before stepping foot into the magical interior.
The main room of the building, a former Neo-Gothic Jewish Synagogue turned arts foundation space, was lit with angelic bright blue hues. At that moment I knew my first Jivamukti class would be nothing short of spectacular – and I was right. The very intense but uplifting class was taught by the beloved Lululemon ambassador and Advanced Jivamukti teacher Rima Rabbath, whose warmth and spirit were contagious. In addition to her excellent instruction, there were several other teachers spread throughout the room who did an incredible job of adjusting and challenging each individual. This gave the class a very personal feel in a crowd of over 200 people.
The meditative beats of DJ Sasha helped transform this intimate space. His music, so powerful and resonating throughout the room, seemed to give the yoga movements more flow and every posture more meaning. Together Rima and Sasha harmoniously created the most magical class I have and quite possibly will ever take. After the class, refreshing Love Grace juices were served and everyone went home with their complimentary Lululemon yoga mat, hopeful that this was just the beginning of more Underground Yoga events to come.
My introduction to Jivamukti yoga was a physically challenging and spiritually uplifting one that I would highly recommend to others! Rima teaches at the Jivamukti Yoga School in Union Square along with other wonderful teachers that cater to all levels of experience. Classes are offered almost every hour, seven days a week. Make sure to visit the gift shop and cafe – some of the most delicious vegan food in town is served there!

All are raw, made entirely of organic ingredients, and contain a whopping seven to eight grams of turmeric sourced from Hawaii.”

Founder: Daniel Sullivan
When Daniel Sullivan took a working vacation to farm in Maui in 2008, he didn’t expect to come back with a new business idea. But while farming turmeric, an ancient spice typically used in South Asian cooking, he got the idea to concoct herbal drinks back home in New York.

TumericALIVE was proud to supply our elixir to the participants of CAQ Capoiera Festival & Batizado 2012 on May 20, 2012. Over 40 Capoiera masters, and capoeiristas of all levels rocked capoeira, maculele, and samba! — They celebrated the formatura (graduation of new capoeira masters), and watched capoeira masters play in the roda (capoeira circle). The event also included Brazilian samba as well as the Afro-Brazilian Maculelê warrior stick dance. We sent photographer Jimmy Le to cover the happening:
“A couple of years ago my friend Dan Sullivan, affectionately known as Yoga Dan, started a turmeric juice company. When he first told me this I pictured him splattered with orange grit in a basement somewhere, pulverizing turmeric by hand and pouring it into unmarked bottles and I thought “yeahhhh… ok.” Two years later Dan’s Tumeric elixir is in every Whole Foods and is slowly taking over the world.”

No need to be stingy with spices. Research from Penn State finds heavily spiced meals — think chicken curry with lots of turmeric, or desserts rich in cinnamon and cloves — may do the heart good.
“Elevated triglycerides are a risk factor for heart disease,” explains researcher Sheila West.
Her study found that a spicy meal helps cut levels of triglycerides, a type of fat, in the blood — even when the meal is rich in oily sauces and high in fat.
In fact, she documented a decrease of triglycerides by about one-third. This compares with people who ate the same meal, but prepared without spices.
“It was surprising,” West told us. “I didn’t expect such a large decrease.”
It’s good news for those of us who love a rich curry made with lots of turmeric or bold amounts of garlic and oregano. During the study, they used a blend that included these spices, as well as paprika, rosemary and ginger.
West intends to continue with this line of research, and later this month will present the results of a second study that replicated these triglyceride findings. Next step: determine which of these spices — at what levels — may be most beneficial.
“To me, the biggest advantage [found in the study] is the lowering of triglycerides and the insulin levels [which dropped about 20 percent],” explains cardiologist Ravi Dave of he University of California, Los Angeles who has reviewed West’s spice research study. He explains that keeping these levels low can lower the risk of metabolic syndrome — as well as diabetes and heart disease.
It’s not clear whether these benefits of highly spiced meals lead to long-term reductions in the risk of disease. Dave says that as traditional healing methods, many of which come from Ayurvedic medicine, are evaluated using modern, scientific methods, more research is needed to nail down potential therapeutic effects
“What we have is more emerging data on the benefits of spice, so I’m excited,” Dave says.
For now, Dave recommends traditional Indian spices — which he and his family use at home — such as turmeric, cumin and coriander, to jazz up food.
In the future, it’s possible that spices will play an elevated role in medicine, with specific recommendations for preventing disease.
