Radiant Life offers almost 700 products in categories such as nutrient-dense foods, superfood supplements, personal care, baby and child, for the home, and water filtration.
I keep a ten-month supply of their beef sticks in my office closet, and small stashes in my backpack and travel bags so that I can use them as my preferred snack whenever I’m traveling or need something quick so I don’t get distracted from my work by needing to go to the kitchen.
I also use one or two capsules of their Essential C Complex per day during periods where I am not consistently getting 200 mg or more of vitamin C per day from whole foods. It is made from organic amla berry, camu camu berry, and unripe acerola cherry.
I take 6 capsules of their liver extract per day during periods where I am not meeting my target of an average of 4-8 ounces of liver per week.
During periods where I am not actively eating oysters, I take 6 capsules of Oystermax a day on an empty stomach, which is like eating 1-2 oysters. OysterMax is made by Marine Health Foods, and they also offer a wild Alaskan salmon oil and a shark liver oil.
Seeking Health makes my favorite genetic analysis and the only one I routinely use in my consulting practice, Strategene. I take one capsule of their vitamin B6 as P5P every day, and I use their lactase drops in my raw milk (raw milk has some lactase but not as much as the healthy gut of someone without genetic lactase non-persistence!).
I use one or two of their lion’s mane- and rhodiola-based “Think” packets on days where I need deep focus for research and writing.
I personally use a ChiliPAD (now called Cube Sleep) to keep my mattress cool at night. I will be upgrading to the Dock Pro and trying out the chiliBLANKET soon. This is hands down one of the best tools I’ve used to improve my sleep. Read more about my experience in How the Chili Pad Took My Sleep to the Next Level.
I use their amber glasses with prescription lenses as my night-time blue-blockers, and their “blue light blocking torch” as a red light flashlight when going into rooms at night where I don’t have ambient amber light set up. I also use their EMF-blocking laptop mat under my keyboard when I’m at my desk, and with a pillow under my laptop on the less common occasions I work freely with my laptop on my lap. I use their EMF-free airtube headphones when I need headphones to reduce feedback on my computer.
I use this for five minutes a day as part of my morning routine, and find it invigorating. I personally am very heat-intolerant and I make it a point to sweat during high-intensity exercise but I do not feel that I benefit from extra sweating. Otherwise, I would use this for longer. Five minutes a day is my sweet spot. One of my favorite things about this model is that within a few minutes you can pack it or unpack it for storage, making it especially excellent for small apartments where space is a premium.
I currently use a Berkey water filter, and if you'd like to know more about what made me choose Berkey, I've written a whole article on it. To read that article, click here.
Their liverwurst has been among my favorite ways to consume organ meats.
Hands down, Vital Choice is the best seafood on the market.
Saunas are among the most popular requests for our exclusive discount program, and the first one we have available is SaunaSpace. SaunaSpace is EMF-free, and its Faraday model even shields you from ambient EMF while you are using it. SaunaSpace is recommended by several experts, including Chris Kresser, Terry Wahls, Wendy Myers, and Ari Whitten.
Red light therapy is claimed to improve energy levels, reduce pain, improve skin healing, and to increase sex drive and sexual health. Joovv is the model endorsed by figures such as Ben Greenfield.
Ben Greenfield's Kion brand carries premium coffee, whole-food "clean" energy bars, and supplements aimed at weight management, muscle gain, recovery, focus, digestion, immunity, and nutritional adequacy. His energy bars are delicious if you love the taste of cocoa, and you'll love the texture if you love chia seeds. They're gut-friendly and made from whole foods, so they're a great snack on the go. Kion sells a select group of Thorne supplements. One that I use from time to time is the vitamin D and K2 mix. Notably, all the Thorne supplements are the same price or slightly less expensive than on Amazon, and with the Masterpass discount you get by far and away the best price on them.
Masterpass member Jenny Skripko requested Just Thrive for the exclusive discount program. Here is what she had to say about their probiotic:
"Just thrive is the only probiotic I have used that I don’t experience negative side effects from and it has been tested so you know that the probiotics actually survive the stomach environment. Personally I see great improvement in my health and digestion when I take it consistently."
Masterpass member Kent White requested we incorporate BodyHealth into the exclusive discounts program. Here is what Kent had to say about this company:
"I have been taking PerfectAmino daily for over a year and absolutely love it! I use it as a pre-workout and it has significantly reduced muscle soreness as well as improved my mood throughout the day. I also take it while fasting with water and it makes a significant difference in my energy levels while limiting calories. Can't recommend it more highly!"
Masterpass member Nick Light requested we incorporate BodyHealth into the exclusive discounts program. Here is what Nick had to say about this company:
"I absolutely love Perfect Supplements! I have always struggled to find supplements that I can trust, even noticing that some of the top brands use fillers and ingredients that I'd like to avoid. Perfect Supplements produces high-quality products, with no fillers, and they are committed to lab testing to make sure that they are providing exactly what they say they are and nothing else. In fact, they just expanded their testing to do complete 3rd party testing on every batch of finished product. I really love their collagen powder, liver capsules, and magnesium."
Masterpass member Michael Mitchell requested we include Legion Athletics in our discount program. Here is what Michael had to say about their Legion Genesis greens and superfood product:
"I love taking Legion Genesis in the morning, it just makes my body feel incredible and is a wonderful start to the day. Legion seems to really care about getting the effective dose quantities in there, not merely enough to be able to put these things on the ingredient list. Love it."
My five favorite t-shirts are all Barbell Apparel T-shirts. Barbell was launched to make clothing fit in a way that shows off the work you do in the gym, in a subtle and classy way. They ran the 2nd-biggest fashion Kickstarter campaign of all time to develop their athletic fit jean, which spilled over into other brands to bring athletic fit to the mainstream. They have been featured on Shark Tank, and their athletic fit havok polo shirt has sold out over three times. In addition to t-shirts and polo shirts, they have tank tops, long-sleeve shirts, hoodies, and sports bras; and for bottoms, they have leggings, jeans, shorts, chinos, joggers, and dress pants. Styles for both men and women.
Katie Wells of Wellness Mama spent a decade making homemade skin and hair care products for herself in her kitchen, and recently began selling the products under the name Wellnesse. Her toothpaste has quickly become my favorite, hydroxyapatite to promote mineralization, xylitol to prevent tooth decay bacteria from growing, neem and green tea as natural antimicrobials, aloe vera and silica for whitening, and a fresh mint flavor. I haven't tried her shampoo yet, but rumor is that women with curly hair love it. The wellnesse.com web site has an "ingredients" tab that tells you exactly why they put each ingredient in each product.
LMNT is a the saltiest electrolyte mix on the market. Quite often people who eat a whole-foods diet that is low in starches and cheese do not realize that they've eliminated the vast majority of salt in their diet. While salting food to taste and drinking salted lemon water are great ways to get salt in, many people simply don't have a salty enough appetite to get enough in these ways. LMNT has the benefit that it tastes a little fruity, tangy, and sweet (although it has no sugar). This allows people who need more salt but aren't craving the specific salty taste to easily pack in an extra gram at a time.
I believe many people with low dopamine symptoms (low motivation, low energy, low focus, easy distraction), with persistent failure to absorb, retain, or properly distribute nutrients into their cells, or who can't seem to retain the water they drink, need more salt. Many athletes and sauna users lose copious amounts of salt in their sweat. I also find salt great for hangovers and for alcohol-induced insomnia.
Magic Spoon breakfast cereal, brought to us by the makers of Exo, the cricket protein bars, was listed by Time Magazine as one of the best inventions of 2019. This is a high-protein, low-carb breakfast cereal that hits a home run for triggering my nostalgia over my favorite foods as a child while making them orders of magnitude healthier. If, like me when I first tried Magic Spoon, you haven't eaten breakfast cereal in over a decade, you will probably find the fruity flavor very reminiscent of Fruity Pebbles, the cinnamon flavor very reminiscent of Cinnamon Life, the cocoa flavor very reminiscent of Cocoa Puffs, and the frosted flavor very reminiscent of Frosted Flakes. Currently they all come in O-shapes instead of flakes, pebbles, squares, and puffs, and that's because it took extraordinary persistence and ingenuity just to get something high in protein and low in sugar to even roll into an O effectively. So they're leading with O-shapes of our favorite childhood flavors and then once they're fully on their feet they will diversify the flavors and shapes. In fact, they just added a blueberry flavor.
Pique Tea offers a line of premium quality, organic, purity-tested teas, packaged in an innovative and convenient form as single-use sticks of tea crystals. Their practice of crystallizing cold-brew tea makes Pique more convenient to use because you can mix it with cold or hot water and you don't need to let it steep. More importantly, it's offers plastic-free delivery of premium tea. Most tea is either safe paper tea bags but with low-quality tea sediment, or silken tea bags that leach one sixtieth of a gram of plastic into each cup. Pique also screens for heavy metals, toxic molds, and pesticides, guaranteeing unmatched purity and delivering refreshing convenience.
Lactigo is a topical gel containing carnosine that is formulated for transdermal absorption in order to enhance athletic performance and recovery. Carnosine acts as a pH buffer inside muscle cells. When you exercise at high intensity, lactic acid is generated, and when it accumulates faster than it can be recycled, the pH declines and shuts down energy metabolism within the muscle cell, causing fatigue. Acidity also appears to play a role in delayed-onset muscle soreness and to delay recovery. By buffering the pH during exercise, carnosine prevents fatigue and enhances recovery. Lactigo is meant to be applied topically to the relevant muscles 40 minutes prior to exercise.
Masterpass member Taylor Johnson requested we get Perfect Keto into the discount program.
This is what Taylor had to say about the brand:
“I’ve been doing some level of a ketogenic diet for around 6 years now. Early on it was challenging to find products (especially bars) that fit what I was looking for. Perfect Keto’s bars are hands down the best keto bars for taste and ingredients out there. I’ve tested everyone against a CGM [continuous glucose monitor] and had near zero blood sugar spike from them. Additionally, all of Perfect Keto’s MCT powder and exogenous ketone products are both tasty and effective. I highly recommend all of their products I have used.”
I have been a guest on the podcast of Perfect Keto's founder, Dr. Anthony Gustin. You can listen to it here.
Their selection includes bars, nut butters, coffee, urinary ketone testing strips, MCT oils and powders, and a nutritional/herbal blood sugar support supplement.
A few things to keep in mind:
Some of these companies offer free international shipping, but some have extra fees. Generally the companies do not take responsibility for anything that happens at customs.
Even if a company doesn't ship outside the US, you can set up an account to get anything that ships from the US forwarded to you. For example, MyUS.Com.
If Canadian members request companies that operate out of their location using What Other Discounts Would You Love to See, I will do my best to add them.
