Welcome to Ben Greenfield's Weekly Roundup!
In this weekly post, I share with you my most interesting discoveries of the week, including the latest news on the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking, and anti-aging research. I also recap my upcoming events and special announcements so you can keep up with opportunities to learn, giveaways, discounts, and more!
How To Become Your Own Health & Lab Interpretation Ninja
Feeling overwhelmed by the flood of health information out there today?
If so, you're certainly not alone.
When my friend Dr. Leland Stillman teamed up with his strength and conditioning/wellness coach, Jim Laird, he was already a prominent figure in high-end concierge medical services. Dr. Stillman's expertise was highly sought-after, resulting in a fully booked schedule and countless one-on-one consultations.
Yet, he felt a growing dissatisfaction. Dr. Stillman recognized that real change comes from continuous coaching and lifestyle shifts, not just occasional visits to an MD. This realization led him to create his own comprehensive wellness coaching programs, designed for physicians and patients alike to learn how to apply cutting-edge functional medicine concepts to their own lives.
While many waiting lists to see a functional medical doctor are incredibly long, you can get into Dr. Stillman's coaching programs quickly, including fundamentals of wellness, health coaching, thyroid regulation, and lab interpretation courses. He also offers exclusive specialty programs, rolled out a few times a year based on demand, and even does telemedicine (several of my clients use Leland as their primary physician!). Feedback from Dr. Stillman's clients indicates that the best outcomes are derived from a blend of courses and coaching.
Dr. Stillman's approach will empower you to pinpoint the key priorities in your health journey, communicate effectively with your current physician, secure necessary lab tests, and adeptly maneuver the often complex medical landscape. At its core, the coaching will help you forge habits tailored to your unique circumstances, accelerating your path to optimal health.
Why linger in uncertainty when you can act now and fast-track your wellness journey? On behalf of Dr. Stillman, I'd like to invite you to explore his services and allow him to simplify everything for you.
As a thank you for being a valued follower of mine, Dr. Stillman is extending special discounts for courses and coaching programs. Simply click here and use code BEN for 10% off.

Product Of The Week
::: Save 10% On A Single Supplement That Gives You The 7 Best Forms Of Magnesium :::
Did you know that 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient?
This isn't just a minor oversight. A lack of magnesium can leave you vulnerable, especially when facing stress.
Why? Because magnesium:
- Is vital for allowing your nervous system to relax.
- Assists in lowering cortisol and other stress hormones.
- Ensures your blood vessels remain relaxed.
- Is fundamental for heart and nervous system functions.
- Bolsters a balanced immune system.
- Advocates for brain and mental well-being.
- Aids in nighttime relaxation and boosts sleep quality.
In sum: a shortage of magnesium means you're likely to feel the toll stress takes on your health more acutely.
Now, before you rush out to grab any magnesium supplement from your local store, pause. Magnesium comes in several efficiently absorbed forms like glycinate, malate, aspartate, orotate, and citrate, each optimized for different parts of your body. However, most over-the-counter options are of inferior quality, often providing just one or two forms at best.
Moreover, commonly found supplements are usually just 10-25% elemental magnesium. For instance, a 200 mg capsule of magnesium glycinate delivers a mere 28 mg of the elemental kind. You'd need to gulp down 15 of these to hit the daily recommended 420 mg.
It's no wonder I've tried many magnesium supplements and felt no change.
Enter Magnesium Breakthrough from BiOptimizers. This gem encompasses the seven top-tier, well-absorbed forms of magnesium, packing a punch with 250 mg of elemental magnesium in each capsule. You only need 1-2 capsules daily, a stark contrast to the 15-30 of inferior products. Notice the transformation in just days.

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”?
