New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!

Cool New Kettlebell I've Been Using (These things have been out of stock forever, but it looks like they finally have them in again!)

I just got a new adjustable kettlebell from Kettlebell Kings delivered (and huffed it up my 1/8 mile long driveway)! This bad boy conveniently adjusts from 12 up to 32kg in one-kilogram increments.

Purchasing this many different kettlebells would normally cost nearly $1,000! But this single kettlebell can weigh 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 or 32 kilograms depending how you need to train. As you can see in the video below, it has seven plates you can use to adjust the weight, and they are locked in around a center screw and then secured with an Allen wrench.

The kettlebell comes with all the necessary tools to adjust the weight as easily as possible. All parts needed to switch weights come with the packaging.

So it's pretty handy, especially if you want to start with light kettlebell swings and adjust as you get stronger, or don't have space in your place for a bunch of kettlebells. You can grab one at Kettlebell Kings here and save 15% with code GREENFIELD.

::: Save 15% On The Next Great Longevity Molecule :::

Carbon60 is now being championed as one of the most potent anti-aging and anti-inflammatory molecules in existence, and highly effective for both people and animals.

Exhibiting antioxidant properties 270 times stronger than Vitamin C, Carbon60 can eliminate scar tissue, rehabilitate injured tissues, and increase energy, alertness, and overall well being.

The Carbon60 I use is made by C360 Health, a company that adheres to the strictest quality control standards to assure the purity of all of their products. Unlike most other Carbon60 producers, they aren't just buying and mixing “off the shelf” components. They carefully test their Carbon60 to assure maximum purity and control all components of their supply chain, which allows them to perform periodic inspections during all stages of formulation.

Featured Product: Kion Immune

I don't need to tell you how important having a strong immune system is right now. Lucky for you, my company Kion and I recently formulated and blended two of the most studied nutrients for immune health—Vitamin C and Zinc.

It may sound like a super simple formula, but these two nutrients are essential when it comes to proper immune system function, are safe for long-term use, science-backed, and very affordable.

We put your Vitamin C and Zinc in the perfect ratio so there’s no guesswork on dosage (I’ve been taking 2 caps each morning at home with my morning baking soda in water, then 6 caps when I travel). When taken regularly, Kion Immune can support a healthy immune system and promote proper function of immune cells.*

I’m obviously super excited about this new basic, but powerful, blend. Click here to take an important step in building a strong immune system, and use code BEN10 to save 10% on your first order. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, good sleep, and proper nutrition, Kion Immune can help you stay vibrant and healthy year-round!

    I looked into c60. To my knowledge, longevity benefits (in mice) have been found in only one very small study in 2012. Longevity experts in 2012 deemed the 2012 study to either be flimsy or at least needing verification by a second study . A second study was performed in 2020 found no longevity benefit from c60 and potential toxicity when exposed to ambient light. References are below.

    Ben: It would be useful if you would provide your audience the evidence, or in this case, a presentation of the lack of evidence, for the latest miracle molecule discussed.


    Also see the second study in 2020

    C60 in olive oil causes light-dependent toxicity and does not extend lifespan in mice

    C60 is a potent antioxidant that has been reported to substantially extend the lifespan of rodents when formulated in olive oil (C60-OO) or extra virgin olive oil (C60-EVOO). Despite there being no regulated form of C60-OO, people have begun obtaining it from online sources and dosing it to themselves or their pets, presumably with the assumption of safety and efficacy. In this study, we obtain C60-OO from a sample of online vendors, and find marked discrepancies in appearance, impurity profile, concentration, and activity relative to pristine C60-OO formulated in-house. We additionally find that pristine C60-OO causes no acute toxicity in a rodent model but does form toxic species that can cause significant morbidity and mortality in mice in under 2 weeks when exposed to light levels consistent with ambient light. Intraperitoneal injections of C60-OO did not affect the lifespan of CB6F1 female mice. Finally, we conduct a lifespan and health span study in males and females C57BL/6 J mice comparing oral treatment with pristine C60-EVOO and EVOO alone versus untreated controls. We failed to observe significant lifespan and health span benefits of C60-EVOO or EVOO supplementation compared to untreated controls, both starting the treatment in adult or old age. Our results call into question the biological benefit of C60-OO in aging.
