New Discoveries

Confused About the Status of Stem Cell Treatments in the U.S.?

Have you been considering harnessing the power of stem cell treatments to potentially improve your joint and cognitive function, accelerate healing, or even rejuvenate your skin?

If so, here’s some news you don’t want to miss…

A recent development out of Utah has sparked some important conversations around the legality and FDA approval of stem cell therapy in the U.S. Just last week, Utah passed a law requiring doctors to have their patients acknowledge via a waiver that stem cell therapy isn’t FDA approved.

But here’s the kicker — not being FDA-approved doesn’t equate to being illegal.

Think about it; if that were the case, you’d have to say goodbye to most essential oils and supplements.

Supplements are regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States, but in a manner that is different from how prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and even foods are regulated. Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), supplement manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that a dietary supplement is safe before it is marketed.

The FDA is responsible for taking action against any unsafe dietary supplement product after it reaches the market — but manufacturers are not required to register their products with the FDA nor get FDA approval.

Now, back to stem cell therapy…

While it might be trendy, stem cell therapy isn’t actually new; it’s been around since the 1970s and is now used for benefits such as reducing joint pain, growing hair, smoothing skin, improving sexual performance, and increasing longevity. The legal issues surrounding stem cell treatments usually arise when there’s a miscommunication about its FDA approval status.

This new law in Utah actually highlights that stem cell treatments are indeed legal in the USA, as state law can’t go against federal law. This is a significant point for those considering this innovative therapy.

For a closer look at the ins and outs of stem cell therapies, check out the interview I did with my friend and expert stem cell doctor, Harry Adelson. Last summer, I underwent my third Full Body Stem Cell Makeover®️ with him at Docere Clinics in Park City, Utah, this time using umbilical cord stem cells. Following the stem cell treatment, I experienced a remarkable rejuvenation, waking up with a vigor and vitality reminiscent of being 18 again. Not only did my workout recovery time drastically shorten, but I also noticed a significant enhancement in my libido, a welcome benefit that added to the overall sense of renewed energy and well-being. I also got sick less often and had a more youthful appearance, including a reduction of wrinkles and greater hair volume. Needless to say, I was very impressed, so much so that I’m planning another visit next summer.

The bottom line? Stay informed and make sure you’re getting the right information about these cutting-edge treatments before deciding if you’re for them or against them.

A 30-Second Bedtime Ritual for Deep, Restorative Sleep

Imagine massaging a pea-sized amount of potent cream into your temples and behind your ears before hitting the pillow, then being whisked away into a night of vivid dreams and deep rejuvenation.

If you want to wake up feeling like a million bucks, I’ve stumbled upon an invaluable solution for anyone battling to secure that elusive good night’s sleep…

Somnium is not your average sleep aid but a scientifically backed product developed by Dr. Christine Schaffner, a board-certified naturopathic doctor who has helped thousands of people recover from chronic and complex illnesses.

Somnium harnesses the power of transdermal liposomal GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), a naturally occurring amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter in the brain, and bioactive fermented chondroitin sulfate to regulate your mood, boost your memory, and, most importantly, enhance the quality of your sleep. It does this by facilitating relaxation on a deep cellular level, leading to a deep sleep that many dream about but seldom achieve.

What makes Somnium stand out in a sea of sleep solutions? 

It’s all about the delivery. Many people with sleep issues lack sufficient GABA in their brains, but oral GABA supplements often fall short due to the digestive tract barrier. 

Somnium’s unique topical application, backed by over 59 studies, recognizes the skin as an effective gateway for absorption, effectively absorbing into the skin and crossing the blood-brain barrier to deliver results you can feel.

Plus, it addresses challenges standing in the way of your overall health — including harmful electromagnetic fields (EMFs), environmental toxicants, and stress — offering a holistic approach to combating the modern roadblocks affecting your nervous system, circadian rhythm, and sleep. 

Ready to achieve a more restorative and profound sleep that leads to motivated and productive mornings? Try Somnium and get 20% off your order here with code BEN20.

Biohacking is a term that’s thrown around a lot these days, but what does it really mean? In my recent conversation on the podcast Brave New World with Lord Evgeniy Lebedev, we delve into this topic, exploring how simple lifestyle changes in exercise, diet, and exposure to light can contribute to overall wellness. As we spend a day together, I share insights on biohacking and how you might already be practicing it without even realizing it.

Catch that podcast here or check out this related article, published by The Standard. The article includes a video interview featuring my time with Lord Lebedev and an interview with journalist Will Hosie where I dive deeper into why biohacking and being a human performance enthusiast reflects my desire to fulfill God’s purpose for me.

Product Of The Week

::: Experience Real Hydration With a Free Sample Pack of LMNT ::: 

Every time you sweat, you’re not just losing water; you’re also shedding crucial electrolytes, including sodium.

Without replenishing both, you might find yourself battling muscle cramps, energy dips, and those annoying brain-fogged headaches, regardless of whether you’re crushing it at the gym or just going about your day.

The problem is that most people only replace the water they lose. Why? Because since the 1940s, people have been told to drink at least eight glasses of water per day, thirsty or not. However, drinking without listening to your body’s thirst cues can actually backfire, diluting your blood’s electrolyte balance and leading to a whole host of issues, including fatigue and confusion.

So, what’s the fix?

It’s not to cut back on water but to smartly add electrolytes into the mix — and that’s where LMNT shines.

LMNT packs the perfect blend of sodium, potassium, and magnesium to power up your hydration game, boost your energy, and keep you performing at your peak — all without a speck of sugar or any artificial colors and other nasty ingredients.

Curious about the taste? LMNT comes in a variety of flavors, such as the zesty kick of Citrus Salt, the sweet tang of Raspberry Salt, the bold twist of Mango Chili, or even a Chocolate Salt Mocha that keeps your blood sugar steady. With so many options, there’s an LMNT flavor out there with your name on it. Trust me, hydration just got a whole lot more exciting.

You’re in luck because LMNT came up with a fantastic offer just for you — simply visit LMNT’s site here to get a free sample pack with any purchase.
