My Latest Discoveries: New Things I'm Trying, The Latest Life Hacks, Books I'm Reading, And Much More!
Considering the sky-high price of most “sleep” gummies on the market, it makes good sense to consider simply making your own – and like other gummy recipes, it’s incredibly easy to do.
I've developed and refined this tasty morsel as a part of the upcoming Boundless Cookbook 2.0 (see BoundlessCookbook.com to stay up to date!).
4 tbsp gelatin powder (I like Great Lakes)
1 tsp of lecithin (acts as an emulsifier)
2 tbsp honey (I like Manuka honey for all its other immune-boosting benefits)
2 tbsp of an adaptogen of choice, to desired strength. I recommend liquid or powdered ashwagandha or reishi extract (such as Four Sigmatic for the latter). Alternatively, for a combination of L-theanine and GABA, you can use one full bottle of Quicksilver Scientific Liposomal GABA with L-Theanine, which contains a whopping 2500 mg of L-Theanine.
1000 – 5000 mg CBD extract, depending on desired gummy strength. (I like Element Health Maximum Strength CBD tincture for this, which has 4800 mg in one bottle – and notably, CBD – unlike THC – will not deleteriously impact deep sleep cycles or dreaming/memory consolidation.)
2 tbsp powdered glycine (optional, but helps to lower the body’s core temperature during sleep!)
Over low to medium heat, stir together juice, lecithin, honey, and gelatin until the gelatin is well dissolved. Let the mixture sit to cool.
Stir in 2 to 3 tbsp of the CBD and adaptogen or another relaxing liquid combo.
Pour the gummy mixture into silicone molds (or if you're lazy like me, into a glass container that allows you to simply cut whatever size you want when it's time to dose).
Refrigerate the gummies for at least 4 hours and pop one or two gummies 30-60 min before bed!

A New Way To Get Really Good Peptides Online, Safely.
Recently my friend Jay Campbell sent me some peptides from the only company he uses and trusts: Limitless Life Nootropics.
Why is that significant? Because Jay and I recorded one of my most extensive podcast episodes on the topic, and he is among the foremost experts on the subject you'll find anywhere.
Look, if you don't live under a rock, you need to know about peptides. These little molecules are the future of health, longevity, performance, and quality of life, but not just everyone is providing quality products with real guidance on when and how to use them.
Limitless Life Nootropics is one of the few actually good ones and to no surprise. To say Jay Campbell is passionate about health would be a gross understatement. Few individuals live and breathe the level of sheer expertise and pure compassion Jay represents, and for any company to have his personal recommendation and solitary support means they're truly the best.
After trying their products, I've been incredibly impressed with their system and I know they will be a great asset for you. The quality standards of Limitless Life Nootropics would put many companies to shame, the instruction and guidance offered are second to none, and the care of their owners shines like a lighthouse in an otherwise confusing space in the health and wellness community.
Every batch is tested for purity, and the lowest of any of their products is an incredible 99.3 percent, with most being 99.6, 99.9, or 100 percent pure. Compared to the competition, Limitless Life Nootropics peptides are from government-certified labs. Everything is held to a beyond-high standard, and you will never have to guess about the safety or efficacy of their products.
So, if you're ready to experience notable age reversal, fat loss, muscle gain, and hormone-balancing results, check out Limitless Life Nootropics and use code BEN for 15% off at checkout.
Ben's Official 2023 Mother's Day Gift Guide
This year, with all the love in my heart, I created the greatest gift guide on the internet for this very special holiday that's just around the corner!
As Mother's Day approaches, it's time to start thinking about the perfect way to show your appreciation for the woman who has been there for you through thick and thin. Moms are often the backbone of the family, juggling multiple responsibilities and putting others' needs before their own.
By gifting something that promotes self-care, you're giving them permission to prioritize their own well-being. Whether she's your mom, grandma, stepmom, or someone who has been like a mother to you, we've got you covered with a range of gift ideas that are sure to make her day extra special—including my latest book Boundless Parenting that my own mom had a huge contribution on (if you want to get to know my mom better and hear her heartwarming, inspirational story, you can listen to my podcast episode with her here).
Here's the abbreviated list, but you can read the full guide here.
- Power Plate
- Dry Farm Wines
- Fresh Pressed Olive Oil
- Bubs Naturals
- Max Vitality (Bath Salts)
- Organifi (Harmony) – Women's Power Stack
This year, why not give a gift that supports your mom's health and wellness journey? Take a look at the full guide here and get inspired to give the special mother figure in your life a gift she'll cherish for years to come.

Product Of The Week
::: Save 20% On An All-Natural Sexual Performance Booster :::
Remember the last time you were at the gas station and you saw those horribly-branded erection pills?
They may be tempting, I know, but did you ever take a minute to see what’s actually in those products?
They’re terrible for you. Loaded with caffeine, dangerous pharmaceuticals, and nasty fillers, most of the products on the market that claim to help men in bed are just disasters in a pill. I mean, who really wants a 4-hour erection, nasty side effects, heart problems, and a possible trip to the hospital?
Joymode solves this problem with an entirely natural blend that gives all the desired boosts without the (sometimes literally) killer side effects.
After taking the Sexual Performance Booster, blood levels of the amino acid arginine rises, which directly increases blood flow promoting nitric oxide, penile tissue relaxation, and increased drive.
Meanwhile, the antioxidant action of vitamin C will protect nitric oxide from oxidative degradation. Collectively, this enhances sex drive and blood flow to the penis, resulting in better performance. In essence, Joymode not only perks things up for your short-term needs, but also improves long-term sexual health and function in an incredible two-birds one-stone formulation.
Click here to get your Sexual Performance Booster and use code GREENFIELD for 20% off your order.

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!
P.S. I can also give special discounts for bulk purchases of my books. So, if you would like to use them for a Bible study or a book club, please email pu[email protected], and my team will get you set up.
