Welcome to Ben Greenfield’s Weekly Roundup and Cool New Discoveries!
Ben Greenfield’s discoveries, from 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 giveaways, discounts, and more!
My Latest Fascinating Discoveries: Cool New Things I’m Trying, Books I’m Reading, And More!
An Addictively Good “Brick” Of Satiating Energy Launched A New Flavor I Am Loving
If you know me, then you know that many of my favorite activities, like hiking, hunting, skiing, and camping, involve long periods of time away from my own kitchen.
And if I had to pack enough snacks to keep me going the entire time, it would probably require a duffel bag full (not so convenient to carry on a hike or on the slopes).
So I was pretty happy when I learned about Keto Brick, which quickly became my go-to for convenient, complete nutrition. It’s literally a brick chock-full of cacao butter and other natural, healthy ingredients, consisting of 1,000 calories with roughly 90g fat, 30g protein, and 14g total (not net!) carbs.
In fact, last year I did an experiment during which I only ate keto bricks and meat during a weeklong elk hunt in New Mexico, and I was blown away by the totally stable energy levels and satiating nature of this approach, along with the really good gut stability.
The makers of Keto Brick recently sent me their brand-new flavor, Mint Chocolate, and let me just tell you it’s so good that you could even break off a little piece to satisfy your dessert craving.
Click here to try the new Mint Chocolate Keto Brick and other tasty flavors, including Cookies & Cream, Mocha, and another fan favorite, peanut butter. Yum!
Red Light Therapy For Your Furry Friends
I’m no stranger to red light therapy.
But did you know that red light therapy can be used on pets, too? Me neither.
I’ve done a number of articles and podcasts on red light therapy and all its benefits, including:
The Power Of Photobiomodulation: My Daily Red Light Therapy Routine Explained, Red Light Device Tips & Cautions, 3 New Red Light Research Discoveries & Much More.
What’s The Deal With Fancy Red Light Devices? Your Go-To Guide On How To Use Red Light To Enhance Testosterone, Skin, Recovery, Cognition, Sleep & Beyond!
Shining Laser Lights On Your Balls & Beyond: Photobiomodulation 101 – How To Use Near Infrared & Red Light For Collagen, Thyroid, Muscle, Skin & More.
But Glowbie is specifically made for veterinary applications with all the same benefits humans reap from red light.
Glowbie is essentially a crate for your dog or cat with red light panels inside to help your pet reduce pain, improve their mobility, and get better sleep. Glowbie treatments only take 20-30 minutes through advanced LED technology that delivers concentrated red and near-infrared (NIR) light wavelengths.
Additionally, Glowbie’s sleek design is way more attractive than your typical wire or plastic crate, so it fits right in to your home decor. Incidentally, it’s also great for putting bottles of glass water in or anything else that you want to “charge“ with infrared energy.

My New Parenting Book Is Available To Pre-Order Now
That is, I just put the finishing touches on my brand new parenting book – which covers and decodes everything from education to baby nutrition to discipline to legacy to finances to college and much, much more!
It’s called…drumroll please…
Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
This book isn’t just written by me and my superstar wife Jessa. Rather, I put together a dream list of amazing and inspirational parents who I admire and asked them to share their best-of-the-best tools, tactics, and habits for raising incredible children in this modern world.
Part of my motivation to create this anthology of parenting wisdom was my own wish to know “all the answers” before I became a parent. I would have loved to have had the perfect parenting blueprint. Unfortunately, when Jessa and I were young parents, there was no step-by-step instruction guide that existed for how to raise impactful, happy, and fulfilled young humans – so we, along with most parents, walked into this life-altering journey without a blueprint.
But now it exists. Why try to go on this parenting journey alone and make time-wasting and life-changing mistakes when parents who have come before you can share with you all their insider secrets?
So now Boundless Parenting is here…I couldn’t be more excited, and guess what? Pre-orders are LIVE right now! Head over to BoundlessParentingBook.com to learn more and sign-up for pre-order notifications.

Product Of The Week:
::: Save 27% On My Must-Have Water Supplements :::
Quinton and Active H2 Molecular Hydrogen from Water & Wellness are a non-negotiable part of my daily hydration regimen. I love the convenience of downing a single glass of water with two supplements that so dramatically impact my body as a whole.
Drinking water is not enough. Water follows the movement of electrolytes. And Quinton marine plasma harvested from oceanic plankton blooms is the gold standard in restoring the human bio terrain, providing up to 78 minerals from the periodic table in precise ratios to maximize bioavailability.
As for Molecular Hydrogen (h2), let’s just say that research on it has skyrocketed over the last decade. Being a selective antioxidant, H2 regulates your own oxidation-reduction reactions that lead to premature aging. Other potential benefits range from upregulating mitochondria (more energy) to improving oxygen utilization (better workouts and less recovery time). And with the addition of Chromax, H2 can provide amazing metabolic benefits (improved sugar and carbohydrate metabolism) to help you lose the fat and not the muscle.
Right now, Water & Wellness is offering their best discount of the year on a limited number of Quinton/H2 bundles exclusively to Ben Greenfield Life (even better than their Black Friday sale). Their Holiday Prepper & New You Bundle will not only help you better deal with the extra calories, sugar, and alcohol you may find yourself consuming more during the holidays, but it will also give you the energy and incentive to start off on the right foot in 2023 and keep it that way.
Give this bundle as a gift on its own, dole out products as separate gifts or gift yourself to get through the holidays and kick off 2023 feeling and looking your best.
Click here for 27% off a 60-day supply of Quinton (Hypertonic and Quintessential), Active H2 Ultra, and Active H2 + Chromax (purchase by Tuesday, Dec 20, and you’ll receive an exclusive discount during checkout on the best-selling all-in-one longevity formula, NAD+ Platinum).

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina
I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my new book, Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits for Spiritual Stamina.
