Welcome to my Weekly Roundup!
In one convenient post, you're about to discover the most important things I've noticed this week, including the latest news from the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking and anti-aging research, the top photos, videos and stories from this week, upcoming events and speaking appearances, giveaways, specials and a host of other things you may have missed.
New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
-Book: In my recent Facebook LIVE tour of my bedroom, several of you commented on the “relationship” book on my nightstand: The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work: A Practical Guide from the Country's Foremost Relationship Expert. My wife and I are working through it right now, and it is nothing short of astounding in terms of how close it's brought us together emotionally and spiritually. This dude John Gottmann runs a “Marriage Lab” in Seattle and can predict divorce rates with over 90% accuracy, and, better yet, ensure quite efficiently that doesn't happen by following the principles in his book. If you're married or thinking of it, I can't recommend this book highly enough.
-Supplement: On February 2nd, I'm releasing a podcast entitled “The 30 Year Old Scientist Phenom Who Runs a 2:30 Marathon, Deadlifts 420 Pounds & Drinks Hydrogen Enriched Water”. In that show, my guest Tyler Lebaron and I discuss molecular hydrogen, (H2). Also known as diatomic hydrogen, it is a tasteless, odorless, flammable gas. Over 500 peer-reviewed articles have demonstrated hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 150 different human disease models. H2 reduces oxidative stress as a selective antioxidant and by maintaining homeostatic levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc. H2, like other gaseous signaling molecules (i.e. NO, CO, H2S), appears to have cell signal-modulating activity affording it with anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-allergy benefits. I'm still quantifying results, but in the meantime, if you want to try this stuff for yourself you can click here for a 10% discount.

This Week's Most Popular Snapchat Story:
Men's Health magazine came to my house for 2 days of filming for the Men's Health film project and one of the behind-the-scenes stories that I unveiled was a mainlining of my own stem cells, extracted from my fat 6 months ago, straight into my bloodstream via a self-administered push IV. We caught it all on camera and did a Snapchat story on it. To ensure you don't miss crazy biohacks like this, live as they happen, along with all the giveaways and other special things I do on Snapchat that you can't get access to anywhere else, follow me here on Snapchat
