Articles, Weekly Roundup

Welcome to my Weekly Roundup!

In one convenient post, you're about to discover the most important things I've noticed this week, including the latest news from the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking and anti-aging research, the top photos, videos and stories from this week, upcoming events and speaking appearances, giveaways, specials and a host of other things you may have missed.

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

– Cool Meditation “Hack”: I've been pairing use of the interactive meditation app “PAUSE” with a 20-minute neurostimulation session using my “Circadia” device – a headset made by Fisher-Wallace that uses Cranial Electrical Stimulation to decrease cortisol and increase dopamine and serotonin (here's my podcast with the inventor). This recent pilot study used EEG validation to demonstrate the superiority of PAUSE (interactive meditation) versus the popular app HeadSpace (guided meditation). Anyways, to try this, you need two things: a Circadia device and the PAUSE app. You can save $100 on the Circadia device with code “Greenfield” at checkout.

– High Quality Avocado Oil and Ribeye Steak Recipe: This entire week, in an attempt to try an N=1 of the popular, sexy “carnivorous diet“, I've been eating a giant-ass, grass-fed, grass-finished French cut ribeye steak from USWellnessMeats for dinner each night (admittedly, along with a few slices of fresh tomato or sautéed cucumber and celery, and a big glass of organic FitVineWine. Use code GREENFIELD10 for 10% off yours.). I logged each delicious meal on my Instagram channel, and got plenty of questions about what my actual recipe is and it's quite simple, really: in a giant cast iron skillet I pool a generous quantity of “Ava Jane’s Avocado Oil”, which is naturally packed with over 20 vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E and magnesium, and has a very high smoke point of 480 °F , which makes it the perfect companion for grilling or pan-searing meats and vegetables. I then take the slab of meat, and slather it in black pepper, cayenne pepper, fresh chopped rosemary and thyme, and “Ava Jane’s Colima Sea Salt”, which pairs well with the avocado oil as a coarse, crunchy, moist unrefined sea salt that enhances every bite of steak with an explosion of crunchy, salty goodness. On the stovetop in a cast-iron skillet, I sear the steak on one side for 4 minutes, the other side for 4 minutes, then I broil for 1 minute on each side, remove from the broil and finish with 1 final sear on each side on the stovetop. I let it rest for 5 minutes, pour all the salt and herb-infused oils from the skillet on top of the steak and dig my teeth in then slowly slip into carnivorous nirvana. Bon appetit, baby.

Special Announcements:

::: Forever Labs Mega Giveaway! Win a Stem Cell Treatment! :::

This is crazy! I am really excited to announce today that one lucky person will WIN appointment to bank stem cells with Forever Labs! To enter to win, just click here!

I had bone marrow extracted from my hip and banked for later use at the Forever Labs clinic in Berkeley, CA in November. Stem cells extracted from bone marrow and injected into the bloodstream are especially useful for anti-aging, repairing joints and tissue, and more.

Your stem cells replenish your blood, bone, immune system and other vital tissues and body systems. Research suggests the decline in the number and viability of bone marrow stem cells plays a role in the physical decline associated with aging. By storing your young stem cells, you will be able to use them to fight age-related diseases and perhaps, aging itself.

Ready to WIN? Just click here to enter!

Curious about how Forever Labs works? Click here to learn more about their locations, physicians, pricing, and more. If you don’t want to take chances on the giveaway and are ready to bank your youthful stem cells today, you can save $250 on your procedure with code GREENFIELD.

::: We Need Congress To Stop Dishing Out Bad Science :::

Americans’ lack of physical fitness is affecting everything from our military, who are struggling to find enough recruits who are fit to serve, to rising costs in treating diabetes. As a personal trainer and wellness consultant, I believe exercise is critical for a healthy lifestyle. Yet, despite how much time and effort people invest trying to get in shape, they rarely meet their goals.

Since the introduction of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA), some 35 years ago, Americans have seen sharp increases in rates of nutrition-related diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, and it appears things are only getting worse. We need dietary guidelines that promote the scientifically sound approach to losing weight, getting healthy, and reversing the devastating health trends in our country.

Continue reading my op-ed for The Hill, and submit your public comment about establishing new Dietary Guidelines for Americans today.

Ben Greenfield's Ultimate Supplement Guide

Featured Product – NEW:

The Thorne Multi-Vitamin Elite is not your typical multivitamin. Created using superior forms of vitamins and minerals, it is actually two unique formulations, with the complete simplicity of 3 capsules in the morning and 3 capsules in the evening. The A.M. formula promotes energy production during the daytime, while the P.M. formula enhances rest and recovery at night.* This high-performance nutritional regimen is NSF Certified for Sport®.

Some of the key unique characteristics of Thorne Multi-Vitamin Elite include:

  • Vitamins K1 and K2 – most multivitamins use only K1, but vitamin K2 is crucial for proper calcium metabolism.
  • Natural folate (5-MTHF) instead of folic acid (a large part of the population can’t even properly convert folic acid to folate)
  • Methylcobalamin instead of cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin has been shown to be the better-absorbed form of vitamin B12.
    Active, tissue ready forms of vitamins B2 and B6
  • Chelated minerals to ensure optimal absorption
  • Higher doses of magnesium and calcium than typically found in a multivitamin, which is especially important for athletes and exercise enthusiasts.
  • A unique form of curcumin – Curcumin Phytosome (curcumin that has been complexed with phosphatidylcholine for superior bioavailability). This supports joint health and liver detox, gut health, and cardiovascular function by helping to maintain your body’s natural inflammatory response.
  • A special form of green tea called Green Tea Phytosome (green tea complexed with phosphatidylcholine for superior bioavailability), which supplies the antioxidant, liver protective, and metabolic benefits of green tea, without all the caffeine.
  • Relora – a proprietary blend of plant extracts from Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense. This is included in the multivitamin formula to help you with relaxation, curb late-night food cravings, and balance your cortisol and DHEA levels.

Because of the state of the current food supply and the fact that most people don’t eat the recommended daily serving of fruits and vegetables, nutrition experts agree that a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement should be taken daily. This should be considered “dietary insurance”, ensuring you’re receiving the proper amounts of essential nutrients to support your health.

Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport® product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agents, and masking agents.

For a nutritional supplement that lives up to your hard-charging lifestyle and superior quality standards, look no further than Thorne Multi-Vitamin Elite.

*Thorne Multi-Vitamin Elite only available for the shipping within the US.
