My Latest Age Reversal Tactics
I'm often asked how I know anti-aging, longevity, or age “reversal” tactics I engage in are actually working.
Here's an example from my recent state-of-the-art epigenetic age clock test – the DunedinPACE.
The DunedinPACE revealed that I am aging at a rate of .73, which is one of the lowest on record. This demonstrates that the anti-aging, longevity, and age-reversal tactics I'm utilizing are effective, so I figured you'd be eager to learn about what I'm doing exactly.
So long story short is: this stuff works.
Here are the major components of my regimen:
-Daily exercise, including 3x/week weight training and 2x/week high-intensity cardio
-Good sleep, solid relationships, and low stress
-Prayer, meditation, and breathwork
-Tons of nature, grounding/earthing, and sunshine
-Supplement stack that includes NAD, C60, spermidine, fish oil with astaxanthin, bitter melon extract, ketones, essential amino acids, minerals, colostrum, urolithin A, proteolytic enzymes, molecular hydrogen and creatine.
-Occasional use of peptides and peptide bioregulators (typically a short stint 1-2x/year of anti-aging peptides)
-1x/month dosing of senolytic agents for two days
-Intermittent fasting daily of 12-16 hours with a low-carb Mediterranean approach, including plenty of extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, and dark chocolate
-Weekly use of infrared light, sauna, cold plunge, hyperbaric oxygen, and exercise with oxygen therapy during my high-intensity cardio
–High-dose melatonin when traveling (also a good anti-inflammatory agent)
-Yearly stem cell therapy
-Oral care via coconut oil pulling, tongue scraping, and working with a holistic dentist to avoid plaque accumulation
-Because I have a high risk for heart disease and a beat-up heart from years of hard-core endurance training: red yeast rice extract, niacin, coenzyme Q10, and annatto-GG extract.
I'm working on planning both a podcast and an article to get into more detail about my anti-aging protocol because it is such a popular topic (and for good reason…who doesn't want to age slowly and gracefully?) – so be on the lookout for those!

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my book, Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
After two years of interviewing some of the top parents on the planet…
…. from crazy macho Alpha dads like the controversial “Liver King” and Spartan race founder Joe DeSena…
…to peaceful backwoods, unschooling, off-grid gardeners, and homemakers (including my children’s wilderness survival instructors and my own wife Jessa)…
…to outside-the-box thinking fitness icons like Kelly and Juliet Starrett, Paul Chek, and the Vega “Fat Fueled Family”…
…to a host of other entrepreneurs, billionaires, single moms, and dads, my own dear parents, pastors, education experts, legacy builders, wealth managers, and many others who have created impactful, happy, and resilient children…
…I’ve finally put the finishing touches on a 600+ page parenting book that is the most comprehensive parenting book that exists. It’s like the blueprint for raising a human.
If Boundless Parenting does make even the smallest impact on your life, I would love it if you could help me spread the word far and wide, by:
- Leaving a review on Amazon
- Sharing the book on social media and tagging me (@bengreenfieldfitness)
- Buying a copy for your friends and family
Thanks again for all your support!
