New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
– My Keto, Good-For-Your-Gut Ice Cream I've Been Eating Every Night
I love to tinker with new recipes. This week I created a trademark “Gut-Healing Keto Ice Cream.” It’s very simple to make, satisfies evening cravings, and quite frankly, I am a fiend for ice cream or anything ice-cream-like.
Blend on high for 5 minutes. Refrigerate overnight for a “pudding” texture or freeze overnight for an “ice-cream” texture. If freezing, I like to pull it out of the freezer 30-60 minutes before consuming (e.g. before dinner) to soften. For added calories, sprinkle with a chopped-up, frozen Kion Clean Energy Bar and you will be in food nirvana, guaranteed. Enjoy!

– “Healthy” Nicotine Gum I've Discovered
I'm a huge fan of nicotine as a cognitive stimulant. As a matter of fact, you can click here to read the top 28 benefits of nicotine (and side effects to be aware of). Problem is, most nicotine gum and sprays are chock full of artificial sweeteners and chemical fillers. Enter Lucy gum: a new formulation of nicotine gum which is an improvement on the texture and taste of existing options like Nicorette. Their flavor chemists developed three signature flavors with very low amounts of artificial nasties – flavors that taste amazing and cover up the harshness of nicotine. Use code BEN20 to get you a 20% discount at LucyGum.com! Enjoy, and use responsibly.

Articles & Podcasts I Was Featured In This Week:
::: Zero App Releases Their Best App Update Yet :::
Meet my friends, the creators of the Zero Fasting app. After collecting feedback from some of their 1.3 million users, the geniuses at Zero, founded by my friend Kevin Rose, released its best update yet to their simple, beautiful iOS app for tracking intermittent, circadian rhythm, and custom fasting. Download the app today to join a thriving community of people fasting everyday around the world and once you download the app, tap on the ‘Learn’ section of the app to read the exclusive “Fasting Decoded” guide published by my company, Kion– the ultimate resource for understanding fasting for weight loss, clarity and energy, longevity, or muscle gain…all in one place.
::: Save $500 on the Exact Infrared Sauna I Use :::
If you're new to my podcasts or articles, you may not know that I have been…well, sauna addict for years. Knowing that I can enter into a private chamber that gives my body a myriad of benefits simply makes a sauna sit a daily must for me. It's a bit of “me time” I crave every day. Research shows that regular sauna use can:
• Increase cell resilience via the production of heat shock proteins
• Significantly increase heart health via red blood cell production and a decrease in CRP, a biomarker for inflammation
• Increase the strength of the immune system
• Enhance deep sleep cycles
• And much more …(check out my sauna science article to nerd out)
I've been using the same sauna for years and I stand by my Clearlight infrared sauna for its dependability, design, safety, and efficacy. I researched A LOT of saunas before I bought mine and the Clearlight line of saunas is what stood out from all the rest because of their EMF and ELF Shielding and their Lifetime Warranty. If you want to sweat like I do go here and use code: BEN, and you’ll get $500 OFF the regular price of each sauna and a gift with purchase. Enjoy!

I've finally bitten the bullet and launched into using 2 of the most potent and well-researched #antiaging molecules that exist: Tam818 and TA65. Please use the link in my bio to hear my podcast with Bill Andrews Ph.D. from Sierra Sciences to discover more about #telomerase and how these two compounds are a couple of the only molecules that have been shown to directly increase #telomerase activity by more than 15% with a direct impact on slowing the #aging process. Warning: they are not cheap but I'm willing to try them to see what happens. I'm measuring my #telomere length before and after and will tell you my results. Go listen to that podcast to learn more and then tell me what questions you still have.

Played an open mic night last night…I have a very, very long way to go in my singing and songwriting but I think this is the last time I will do a cover. I am beginning to write my own original stuff and learn a whole bunch about music theory. My goal is to record an album by the time I’m 50!
