I first interviewed Thomas DeLauer in the episode The Ultimate Guide To Quelling Inflammation: Why Your Curcumin May Not Work, Surprising Effects Of Ginger Oil, Vegan Fish Oil Options & Much More!

Thomas is one of the leading experts in the world of chronic inflammation as well as the response of the human body to a low-carb diet. He is noted for his personal transformation from a 280-pound overweight corporate executive to not only being on the cover of health and fitness magazines worldwide but pioneering some of the mainstream awareness of auto-immune diseases and inflammation in general! Thomas has been highlighted in over 20 magazines showcasing his transformation and has been featured worldwide on the cover of Ironman Magazine, Muscle and Performance Magazine, Natural Muscle Magazine, ICON Magazine, Platform Magazine and Ironman Japan. His background is in Sports Psychology, although it is this passion for psychology coupled with a career in healthcare as a physician recruiter and owner of an ancillary lab services company that sparked his love for nutritional science and what makes the body tick.

He is currently working on a project in the 2nd phase of trials with Doctors at UCLA to identify a strain of bacteria that may help modulate inflammation within the body. It is partially due to his involvement in this study that he has developed such an interest in the world of cellular inflammation in the first place. Residing near Santa Barbara, California, with his wife, three dogs, two horses, and soon to be first son. Thomas promotes a lifestyle of living as close to the earth as possible to obtain the best possible results while still achieving maximum performance in every possible area of life.

  1. Meagan says:

    Great informative episode!!! Loved it. Pity postage of Kor factor ended up being $300 to Australia :(

  2. Chris Holbrook says:

    Why would you put alcohol in your body at all, under any circumstances, for any good reason if your goal was LONGEVITY? What about alcohol consumption, organic or not helps you live longer? LSD, Everclear, whatever.

  3. Danelle Wilson says:

    Just wondering if you could recommend a liposomal glutathione supplement that is available in Canada. The one you have posted a link for is available but shipping costs are $55 which is insane. There are a lot on but not sure which ones are of good quality. What about LivOn labs?

    Thank you!

  4. John Cantrell says:

    do you have transcripts of the podcasts?

  5. Kim says:

    Is Everclear ok for a person who has tested intolerant to grains on their IGG

    1. Yep. Everclear would be fine. It’s distilled enough.

  6. Andrew in Seattle says:

    How does the Onit discount work? I click on the link and it just takes me to normal Onit website. Do you have a code I can use at checkout?

    1. Click the link, add items to your cart, and the discount will be applied.

  7. Victor Rodriguez Jr says:

    Hey Ben, is there a difference in effect on the type of alcohol you drink? Beer vs whisky vs wine.

    1. Yep, it's all in the podcast!

  8. ron says:

    are all colostrum supplements the same? or do you have a recommendation?

    1. Definitely not all the same. This is what I use and recommend:

  9. Mark says:

    Do you recommend Kor factor Glutathion or AF which you have also mentioned lately?

    1. I've used and recommend both.

  10. Antti k. says:

    Minor correction: The code “BENGREENFIELD” in Four Sigmatic shops gives a -15% discount, not -50% discount. Thanks for the code!

  11. Jeff says:

    What is the recommended dosing for Korfactor? I am having trouble finding guidance on the website or product package. Thanks!

  12. virg says:

    Ben, thank you. Where can I purchase Glutathione for IV purposes? Seems like the logical way.

    1. I have a podcast coming out on this soon. Stay tuned!

  13. Tony says:

    Mia’s statement above reminded me of an inherited trait I have which is Mediterranean anemia: Better known today as thalassemia (or as beta thalassemia or thalassemia major). Wondering how that fits in to the picture. Thanks in advance.

  14. mia says:

    what about if your iron/ferritin is low, how will this be affected

    1. Generally iron wouldn’t affect anything because you still have bound iron that is fine to react.
