Do you want to safely and naturally boost your testosterone, live longer, have better sex, and become superhuman?

Well, you’re in luck. Today’s episode of The Intentional Life is truly something special…

My guest today is Ben Greenfield.

Ben is someone I’ve been following for a while now and he has also been a personal friend of mine for the last four years.

In this episode, Ben shows that he is the ultimate human encyclopedia when it comes to everything related to health, wellness, and longevity. Listen to him talk for ten seconds about his area of expertise and you can see the passion and the depth of knowledge that he has. He’s truly something else.

This is definitely one of my favourite episodes that I’ve recorded to date… and if you’re looking to balance your hormones, boost your libido, or improve your health overall, I would strongly recommend checking it out.

Enjoy!

– How to naturally, safely, and effectively boost your testosterone levels

– The best possible workout structure you can use to boost your testosterone

– How to sleep better and longer

– The specific foods that you need to eat to naturally increase your testosterone levels
