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!
-Supplement – Element CBD Pure Hemp Oil: The last time I was in Miami, my friend Adam, a personal trainer there, introduced me to a CBD oil he was getting from nutrient-rich hemp farms in Kentucky. With a full spectrum of all active cannabinoids, this stuff is amazing for anxiety, insomnia, and I've found especially for getting back to sleep if you wake up during the night. In a 2015 study, researchers were able to prove that full spectrum CBD is capable of offering greater levels of relief than other forms of CBD, and after trying this stuff, I'd have to agree. You get a 15% discount here with code BEN15.
– Biohack – Pulsecenters PEMF: OK, OK, admittedly this find is for people who like to invest in spendy biohacks or own very nice things, but this PulseCenters unit is the king-daddy of all PEMF units. PEMF can be used to completely erase muscle injuries (fast!), increase bone density, enhance focus, increase sleep quality and produce a dizzying number of positive effects. The PulseCenters unit is comprised of a massage table, a chair and all body-application accessories to provide full-body PEMF as well as pinpoint concentration. I have the chair in my bedroom and the massage table in my basement and am on this thing every day now while reading, having phone conversations, etc. It has literally changed my body and believe me: I've used a lot of different technologies for recovery.

– Food: Thrive Coconut Manna: I sauté vegetables in this, drizzle it over dinners, toss it into coffee smoothies and simply eat by the chunk-ful. It is some of the tastiest food on the planet. Each jar is whipped up from pure, dried coconut flesh, producing a super rich and creamy spread that tastes great on just about anything or used as a healthy substitute in any recipe that calls for butter or cream. It’s also loaded with nourishing fats, fiber, and protein, making it a superfood that tastes just as good as it is good for you. Grab it from Thrive Market where you'll also get $60 of free organic groceries and free shipping with a 30-day Thrive Market trial.

::: FREE Intellibed $500 Luxury Sleep Bundle with Order :::

This Week's Most Popular Pin from Pinterest:
Featured Product – NEW–Thorne Vitamin D/K2 Liquid:
It is important to maintain an optimal level of vitamin D in the body through all stages of life, from fetal development to old age.* Both vitamin D and vitamin K2 support bone and muscle health, along with cardiovascular health and immune function. Vitamin K2, a series of molecules known as menaquinones, exerts a more powerful influence on bone than does vitamin K1.*
The vitamin K2 in this formula is the well-studied MK-4. Combining vitamins D and K can provide greater support of the immune and cardiovascular systems than each offers separately.* For example, vitamin D is necessary for calcium absorption, and vitamin K is important for directing calcium to the bones and away from the soft tissues, such as blood vessels and kidneys.* Thorne's Vitamin D/ K2 Liquid also provides nutritional support for oncology patients.*
*Thorne Multi-Vitamin Elite only available for the shipping within the US.
*These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
