New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
My Ultimate Anti-Aging Morning Smoothie:
Brace yourself. I've only got ONE big tip for you today, but it is very big. As you may already know from articles like this, I've been doing some intensive study on anti-aging, and come up with a full list of everything (and I mean everything) one could put into, say, a morning smoothie with some ice and a liquid of choice (such as bone broth, coconut milk, hemp milk, etc.) to create the ultimate anti-aging morning breakfast smoothie. We're talking a host of ingredients that target mitochondria, hormesis, inflammation, stem cells, skin/hair/nails, NAD and sirtuin, pathways and beyond – including rhodiola, colostrum, chlorella, marine phytoplankton, aloe vera, coffeeberry fruit extract, frozen broccoli sprouts, moringa, blueberries, cacao powder or cacao nibs, black currant powder, turmeric, green tea extract, Ceylon cinnamon, wild blueberry powder, wild strawberry powder, sunflower lecithin, collagen, L-Glutamine, aloe vera, Pau d'Arco, marine phytoplankton, mushrooms, D-Ribose and more.
My general approach is to take a heaping teaspoon to tablespoon of most of the ingredients (a little *less* of the stevia, since it's sweet), blend it all with ice and bone broth to desired texture, top with a superfood like goji berries, dried blueberries, cacao nibs, spirulina, etc. and dig into culinary nirvana. It is admittedly not a cheap smoothie but holy hell – you're going to feel like you're sixteen years old after you drink this. Bon appetit! Click here for the full Amazon list of every single ingredient I put into this smoothie. You can literally just buy everything off that list and keep in one section of the pantry to quickly add to the blender.

::: Get Your Sex Life Back! :::
GAINSWave is a special type of protocol that is technically called “extracorporeal shock wave therapy,” also known as “Audio Frequency Shockwave Therapy.” This technique uses mild acoustical waves to “shock” a male or female’s genitals back to life in the case of things like low drive or erectile dysfunction or to turn “up” your overall drive and enhance pleasure.
“Gains Enhancement” is one of the only drug-free, surgery-free male enhancement procedures that not only provides effective treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED), but that can also increase both length and girth. To read my in-depth experience with this protocol, click here. Right now, when you purchase six treatments, you will get a seventh treatment free.

Wow. Upon my arrival to my hotel room in Chicago I was greeted with a care package from @hivibechi – an amazing juice bar. Check out the cornucopia. The Lean Velvet is their nutrient dense low-sugar superfood smoothie. Here's how this smoothie breaks down: Base: Wild Harvested Chaga tea Greens: Kale, Spirulina, and Chlorella – all the phytonutrients! Health Fats: Avocado, Coconut Meat, and Coconut Butter Antioxidants: Blueberry and Ceylon Cinnamon Immunity Booster: Camu camu – 200% of your daily vitamin C right here! Protein: Collagen All of these are blended together and lightly sweetened with xylitol and stevia to create Lean Velvet. Or how about the Keto Bowl. They blend acai with coconut meat, avocado, MCT oil, raw cacao, for a flavor-filled fat bomb base, lightly sweetened with xylitol and stevia. They then place a layer of Brazil Nuts on the bottom, for a boost of selenium, and top it off with pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, cacao nibs, bee pollen, cashew butter, and a touch of seasonal fruit. I could go on and on but you get the idea… From bone broth to gut shots to power smoothies and beyond, you gotta check this place out. These days, I’m becoming a bigger and bigger fan of really good alkalizing vegetable juices and this stuff was top notch.

Evidence for the heart and brain health benefits from omega-3 fish oil is undeniable.* But LivingFuel SuperEssentials® Omega 3EDA+ does not stop there. It is far more than just fish oil; it is a sophisticated Antioxidant Essential Fatty Acids supplement and it’s ideal for the entire family.
Conventional fish oil supplements contain significantly more EPA than DHA (typically a 3:2 EPA:DHA ratio), but SuperEssentials® Omega 3EDA+ contains additional DHA that gives it a 1:1 EPA:DHA ratio. Mounting research suggests that higher levels of DHA are optimal for human health, supporting the new 1:1 ratio.
Not all fish oils are created equal. The best quality Omega-3 fats like those in SuperEssentials® Omega 3EDA+ come from small fish like sardines and anchovies that thrive in cold waters. Unfortunately, many of the supplements lining the aisles of health food stores contain inexpensive fish oils from large fish that swim in suspect waters. Plus, they often contain fillers and synthetic materials that can rob the body of nutrition. Order it here.
*The FDA hasn't evaluated these statements. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
