Welcome to Ben Greenfield's Weekly Roundup!
In this weekly post, I share with you my most interesting discoveries of the week, including the latest news on the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking, and anti-aging research. I also recap my upcoming events and special announcements so you can keep up with opportunities to learn, giveaways, discounts, and more!
Reclaiming Chess Glory On The James Altucher Show
That's exactly the approach James Altucher and I discuss in a recent conversation on his show.
As a chess enthusiast, James is on a journey to exceed his former chess prowess using biohacking.
In a wide-ranging discussion, James and I explored groundbreaking therapies such as stem-cell therapy and testosterone replacement, and emerging trends like NR and NAD+ supplementation, all promising to elevate cognitive vitality and boost performance. As we unpacked each of these, I shared my insights on their potential benefits, risks, and how they might give James the cognitive edge he needs on the chessboard.
But it's not all about high-tech interventions. The basics matter too. Light exposure, sleep patterns, and managing external noise – these are the foundational habits that can dramatically enhance cognitive abilities.

Product Of The Week
::: Save 15% On An Innovative Solution For Better Sleep, More Energy, And Stress Management :::
But today, I want to chat about the oft-overlooked sneaky saboteur of well-being: stress.
Ever considered how that chronic stress might be affecting your sleep quality, siphoning off your energy, and poking holes in your ability to focus?
Picture those days when stress is like an annoying gate-crasher at your productivity party, or those nights when peaceful sleep plays hard-to-get, not to mention the times when you feel like you're running a marathon on an empty tank, and you’d sell your soul for a moment of calm in the middle of the daily chaos.
What if you had a secret weapon, a ‘stress-buster,' to help you steer your feelings and energy levels throughout the day?
Strap in, because such a weapon exists, and it's called the Apollo wearable.
Developed by an all-star team of neuroscientists and physicians, Apollo isn’t just another health tracker. No, no. It's on a mission to turbocharge your health by strengthening your nervous system.
Apollo uses touch therapy to send soothing, gentle vibrations coursing through your body, helping you wind down, de-stress, and reclaim that feeling of cool, calm control. Think of it as your personal mood DJ, spinning the tunes for your energy levels.
Now, I know you’re probably thinking, “Sounds cool, Ben, but where's the proof?” Well, Apollo isn’t just a pretty face. It's got the brains to back it up – seven completed clinical trials and another nine in the works.
Apollo users have reported some pretty impressive stats: a 40% reduction in stress and anxiety, a 19% bump in deep sleep, an 11% leap in heart rate variability (HRV), and a focus and concentration boost of up to 25%.
And the best part? Apollo's got your back (or your wrist, or ankle, or even your shirt collar, bra strap, or waistband). It's a safe, noninvasive alternative for managing issues like insomnia, trauma, PTSD, and ADHD, all without taking a pill or needing invasive gear.
Sounds pretty nice, right? It gets nicer. The folks over at Apollo are offering you a 15% discount today! Just click the link and your discount will be applied automatically at checkout.

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
As you may know, in February of this year I released Boundless Parenting: a labor of love made up of interviews with some of the most incredible parents on the planet and their combined wisdom.
This book is designed to be a guide to, well, guiding your child in a world where navigating the act of raising a family has become a lost art.
The interviews in Boundless Parenting range from Bryan Johnson of Blueprint to my friends Dr. Dan and Merily Pompa, and many, many more. The text is chock full of all sorts of tools and tactics, from teaching your kids how to fast (and when it would be appropriate) to the ways Jessa and I have invested in the Greenfield family legacy. It has everything you need to go from lost-puppy-without-a-clue to grade-A super parent, and also has plenty of wisdom and actionable information for well-seasoned parents.
Now Boundless Parenting is available as the ultimate audio experience, as each chapter's narration comes not just from me and my wife Jessa, but also from each contributing parent's voice.
That’s right, you get to hear each parent read their chapter from their own perspective, making this audiobook come to life.
The parents, including my very own mom, my dad, myself, my wife, and many other models of practical parenting wisdom, delve into the fascinating realms of education, discipline, parenting, legacy, and so much more with specifics like:
- The best methods for developing lifelong immunity, cellular resilience, mental toughness, and overall health in a child
- How to manage your time, deal with overwhelm, care for yourself, and maintain high levels of productivity and health while raising children
- Family mission statements to family brands, traditions, and routines that foster pride and a strong identity in children
- Parents like Naveen Jain reveal how anyone can start a non-profit for their child for generational wealth building
- The crazy, controversial primal secrets of “tiger dad” parents like The Liver King and Joe Desena
- Lenore Skenazy on why she's America's Worst Mom (and why you should be too!)
- Joseph Anew and Emilia Run's advice on respectful parenting, slowing down, and controversial topics like co-sleeping
- Angie Fletcher on the intriguing traditions she began with her oldest child as a single, divorced mother
- My own parents Gary and Pat Greenfield on how they raised me and my 4 siblings to approach the world in a far different, outside-the-box way compared to other kids
- And much more!
I’ve even included a sneak peek just for you in a podcast I recorded last week, so you can start learning right here, right now!
Listen to me go over my love and logic parenting philosophy, how Boundless Parenting came to be, and other sections directly from the book.
Because parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. Remember the saying “It takes a village”?
