Finally Found A Multivitamin I Can Get Behind…
I recently received a shipment of the new multivitamin from the company Xtend-Life and I've gotta say, my wife and I are really excited about this.
We received a goodie package containing their total men's balance supplements, along with the women's balance supplements and children's multivitamins for my twin sons.
The reason why I was so pumped to receive these supplements is because these tablets contain everything you need, jam-packed into one formula and formulated with a great degree of care and wisdom. I'm impressed.
For example, the women's balance supplement has everything that a woman needs for things like hormone balance, energy levels, better sleep, and a full range of nutrients, minerals, and micronutrients, to get the total balance women's premium.
And the men's balance supplements are pretty similar to the women's in terms of giving you your vitamins, nutrients, and regulating hormones and energy levels. This basically means I can toss out half the supplements in my pantry and replace them with just this one supplement.
Pretty cool and incredibly convenient for my family and me. If you're interested in learning even more about Xtend-Life and everything they have to offer, I have a podcast coming up with Warren Matthews later this month, the mastermind behind Xtend-Life and these awesome supplements, so keep an eye out for that.
In the meantime, click here and check out Xtend-Life's supplements, including some of their other products like heart health supplements and digestive/keto health supplements. Yeah, they really have a little something for everyone. ;) Check 'em out and use code GREENFIELD to get 15% off your order. Happy shopping!
“Pull Me Closer” – A New Song Of Mine From My New Album
It’s no secret that music is, and always has been, a huge passion of mine. I use music for relaxation, medicine, energy, sleep, worship, and as a creative outlet for the words and tunes that seem to swirl around my mind at least once a week.
One of my “side projects” of late has been creating my own music via original singing-songwriting, and as a result, I have finally put the finishing touches on a brand new rock album I recorded in Nashville, entitled “Made For” You can find my entire album here and take a look at where else my music is located (like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, etc.).
This latest track from my new album is called “Pull Me Closer”. It was inspired by a morning prayer walk in which I was struck by how much God was revealing His power and beauty to me via the colors and canvas of the fields, the trees, the sky, the wind, and the beautiful elements that surrounded me in the moment – all serving to “pull me closer” to my Creator.
As the lyrics to this song say, “creation cries, explosions in every shade…pull me closer…it pulls me closer to you…”
Enjoy, feel free to give it a like wherever you listen, share it with a friend, and most importantly, blast this one loud on a good set of speakers because in my humble opinion, the production quality is STELLAR (huge shoutout to my friend Chad Crouthers for that).

Product Of The Week
::: Get 50% Off Your First Order Of This Filler-Free Children’s Multivitamin Gummy :::
Whether it's due to nutrient-poor plants, nutrient-poor animals, nutrient-poor milk, or nutrient-poor water, most diets are now so micronutrient deficient that they require on average 27,575 calories to supply all the essential nutrients you need.
In other words, you would need to be stuffing your face all day long to actually get what your body needs!
Now imagine the implications for growing young children.
The problem is that most children's multivitamins are little more than candy with a fancy label, containing up to two teaspoons of sugar per dose and all sorts of artificial chemicals and gummy materials that no child or adult should ever consume.
Hiya, here’s your alternative. No, really, that's what it's called.
Hiya is a pediatrician-approved chewable multivitamin that is free of the added sugars and harmful ingredients found in most children's vitamins.
It was created with the assistance of nutritional experts and includes 12 real fruits and vegetables as well as 15 essential vitamins and minerals.
These include vitamin D, B12, C, zinc, folic acid, and a variety of others that aid in immunity, energy, brain function, mood, concentration, teeth, bones, and other functions. In essence, it contains everything youngins need to grow up healthy and resilient.
Plus, it’s tasty, and if you've ever tried to get your 5-, 6-, or 7-year-old to take your adult multivitamin, you know that's important.
As a father, Hiya was a game changer in raising my boys. Jessa and I have always aimed to educate our sons on different topics like nutrition, exercise, etc., and then let them make decisions themselves. I first started using Hiya, hoping to make one of those decisions just a bit easier, and low and behold, my kids were hooked (and not just my kids).
On many occasions, I’ve been known to forgo my own high-end multivitamin in favor of a few tasty Hiya chewables, and even though my boys are older now and don’t mind taking pills, Hiya is still their preferred multivitamin.
And now, just for you, I’ve worked out a special deal with Hiya. When you use this link, you’ll get a whopping 50% off your first order!

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
As you may know, in February of this year I released Boundless Parenting: a labor of love made up of interviews with some of the most incredible parents on the planet and their combined wisdom.
This book is designed to be a guide to, well, guiding your child in a world where navigating the act of raising a family has become a lost art.
The interviews in Boundless Parenting range from Bryan Johnson of Blueprint to my friends Dr. Dan and Merily Pompa, and many, many more. The text is chock full of all sorts of tools and tactics, from teaching your kids how to fast (and when it would be appropriate) to the ways Jessa and I have invested in the Greenfield family legacy. It has everything you need to go from lost-puppy-without-a-clue to grade-A super parent, and also has plenty of wisdom and actionable information for well-seasoned parents.
Now Boundless Parenting is available as the ultimate audio experience, as each chapter's narration comes not just from me and my wife Jessa, but also from each contributing parent's voice.
That’s right, you get to hear each parent read their chapter from their own perspective, making this audiobook come to life.
The parents, including my very own mom, my dad, myself, my wife, and many other models of practical parenting wisdom, delve into the fascinating realms of education, discipline, parenting, legacy, and so much more with specifics like:
- The best methods for developing lifelong immunity, cellular resilience, mental toughness, and overall health in a child
- How to manage your time, deal with overwhelm, care for yourself, and maintain high levels of productivity and health while raising children
- Family mission statements to family brands, traditions, and routines that foster pride and a strong identity in children
- Parents like Naveen Jain reveal how anyone can start a non-profit for their child for generational wealth building
- The crazy, controversial primal secrets of “tiger dad” parents like The Liver King and Joe Desena
- Lenore Skenazy on why she's America's Worst Mom (and why you should be too!)
- Joseph Anew and Emilia Run's advice on respectful parenting, slowing down, and controversial topics like co-sleeping
- Angie Fletcher on the intriguing traditions she began with her oldest child as a single, divorced mother
- My own parents Gary and Pat Greenfield on how they raised me and my 4 siblings to approach the world in a far different, outside-the-box way compared to other kids
- And much more!
I’ve even included a sneak peek just for you in a podcast I recorded, so you can start learning right here, right now!
Listen to me go over my love and logic parenting philosophy, how Boundless Parenting came to be, and other sections directly from the book.
Because parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. Remember the saying “It takes a village”?
Also a quick little PS: I have a new book coming out soon called Boundless Kitchen that contains 48 inspired recipes for longevity, health, and great eating. Keep on the lookout for it as it'll be coming out later next month!
