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!
Biohacking + Parenting: The Longevity Link
Recently I was featured in a fascinating article in Evening Standard called “A war on ageing — meet the USA’s top biohacker.”
As the title implies, this article delves into the heart of longevity biohacking, but not only that, a side of me that's truly personal: my parenting philosophy.
The article showcases my lifelong journey from being a personal trainer to becoming a thought leader in the world of health and wellness. Not to mention, you'll get a glimpse of my daily life, where experimental therapies like infrared light therapy and micro-dosing LSD meet traditional parenting principles.
Specifically, I share my unique perspective on raising children with love rather than discipline, and how to navigate the increasingly complicated modern landscape of parenting.
The article is an insightful review of how biohacking principles can be applied in ways beyond your individual self, including shaping future generations. I touch on the importance of purpose, community, and connection to a fulfilling life, not just for you but for your kids as well.
Whether you're interested in the biohacking scene, parenting, or simply curious about how I approach life, this piece promises to be a revealing and thought-provoking read. And if you want to delve even further into what I've learned about parenting, as well as words of wisdom and encouragement from many of the world's most impactful parents, I highly encourage you to read my latest book Boundless Parenting (or listen to it – the audio version is now available, too!).

Product Of The Week
::: Get A Free Sampler Pack With This Tasty Electrolyte Drink :::
I've got to tell you about a hydration game-changer that's been rocking my personal routine – LMNT.
This isn't just another sports drink mix. It's a blend of essential electrolytes, totally free from sugar, gluten, fillers, or artificial junk.
Here's the scoop – whenever you're pushing your physical boundaries, maybe hitting the gym or sweating it out on a run, you lose vital electrolytes.
This loss can affect your hydration levels and hamper your performance. That's where LMNT shines. It doesn't just replenish, it actually sets you up for optimal functioning.
Now, I have some exciting news for you.
Every order made through my custom URL comes with a free LMNT Sample Pack. That's one packet of each of their flavors – all 8 of them.
Whether you're curious about finding your personal favorite or want to share the goodness with a friend, this is your golden ticket.
This deal is an exclusive from LMNT Partners and open to new and returning customers who use my link. And in case you have any reservations, LMNT has a no-questions-asked refund policy, no need to send it back. This is about you feeling good and performing better. Give it a try.

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”?
