::: Save 10% On The Blue Blockers I Use For More Restorative, Deep Sleep :::
Something you'll rarely catch me wearing: sunglasses. Something you'll frequently catch me wearing: blue light blocking glasses. See, sunglasses block sunlight from reaching your optic nerve, resulting in decreased production of protective melanin, and thus a higher risk of a carcinogenic and uncomfortable sunburn.
Blue blockers, on the other hand, block harmful blue light from modern LED, fluorescent lights, and screens—all of which can disrupt your circadian rhythm, causing increased production of stress hormones like cortisol and the suppression of melatonin at night. This leads to poor sleep and mitochondrial function, slowed metabolism, weight gain, increased rate of chronic disease, low energy, and decreased overall health.
I've tried many blue blockers throughout the years, but the brand I've landed on for functionality (and style) is Ra Optics. You can get your own pair of Ra Optics blue blockers here and save 10% when you use code BEN10 at checkout.

Featured Product: Kion Decaf Coffee!
Fresh from Kion HQ in Boulder, CO and our highly-skilled roasters, Kion Decaf Coffee is finally here.
Using the same specialty-grade coffee beans and ultra-high standards of testing that made Kion Coffee wildly popular, we've crafted Kion Decaf Coffee to bring you the same aroma and flavor—with almost zero caffeine.
We maintain our commitment to offering the cleanest coffee possible by starting with 100% organic, mold- and mycotoxin-free beans, roasting them to high antioxidant/low acrylamide perfection, and decaffeinating it using Mountain Water Processing (MWP).
Nearly identical to the Swiss Water Process you're probably familiar with, MWP uses, you guessed it, pure mountain water and removes the caffeine without the use of chemicals. MWP maintains the beans’ original components and elements of flavor—giving you delicious, aromatic, decaffeinated coffee.

All right… You’ve all been asking what the heck I wear now for 5G and EMG blocking on my flights or any other high EMF scenario, so here’s the big reveal: For the top, I wear a NoChoice hoodie (link in bio and at bengreenfieldfitness.com/nochoice), which is made of 100% silver fiber technology. The hoodie has conductive, EMF, EMI, RFID, and anti-radiation functions. There is a grounding attachment and comes with a grounding cord so you can also ground when you get to your final destination (without having to go barefoot/outside) . It zips up fully over the head to ensure your face, neck, eyes, brain, etc. are fully protected. You are even able to see-through the fabric when zipped up so you can continue with daily activities. The silver fabrics are naturally and permanently antimicrobial too, which is nice. For the bottom, I wear the NoChoice reversible joggers made of 100% silver fiber technology on the silver side (link in bio). The black side is water resistant nylon. Like the top, the joggers have conductive, EMF, EMI, RFID, and anti-radiation functions. There is a grounding attachment on these too. So top and bottom together, they are basically like a full body faraday cage. they even make a full body suit for babies, which I think is cool, and very important. Also I know that it’s working because I can’t even take a phone call if my phone is on and it’s in my pocket! Pretty comfortable too. Anyways, and most importantly, I am feeling way, way better when I’m flying and surrounded by radiation, WiFi, EMF, 5G, etc. Smart move to own gear like this. Anybody else tried EMF blocking gear like this?
