This year I’m actually kind of excited about holiday shopping because I’m choosing to reframe it as an opportunity to vote with my dollar. All of the sponsors I’m sharing with you today make amazing products that I love, while doing good in the world. That ranges from helping people live healthier lives to sustainability initiatives that fight climate change and so much more—they each have admirable values that I feel good about supporting, and I think you will, too. Check out their generous discounts for my community and keep in mind, they expire on December 6th, 2021.
My go-to for grass-fed meats and wild-caught fish
Family, friends, and food are my favorite parts of the holidays. There’s nothing better than bringing together all the people I love around an amazing meal. ButcherBox is always my go-to for super high-quality meat and seafood delivered to my door for an amazing price, but I especially love how much easier they make this busy time of year. You can forget about running multiple errands just to get the grass-fed beef, organic chicken, and wild-caught salmon on your shopping list. Right now, new members get two 100% grass-fed New York strip steaks for free in every box for an entire year. The special offer is automatically applied through the link above.
The best clean snacks, superfood powder, organ supplement, and more
I love Paleovalley because they make it super easy to grab a nutrient-dense snack that is high in protein and low in sugar—and yes, that actually tastes really good! Their Superfood Bars are hands-down my favorite bar option on the market and their Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks are another one of my go-to’s. Paleovalley also makes an Organic Supergreens Powder to supercharge your smoothies and a nutrient-dense Grass-Fed Organ Complex. They’re having their biggest sale of the year right now, with 20% off your entire one-time order or 30% off for LIFE with a Subscribe and Save membership.

My favorite magnesium supplement
It’s the perfect time of year to reprioritize your sleep, and something I’ve found to be super supportive for myself and many of my friends and patients is Magnesium Breakthrough, from BiOptimizers. It’s a mineral most of us are deficient in that is responsible for more than 600 functions in the body, including sleep support, so it’s pretty important to get those levels up. Magnesium Breakthrough contains seven different forms of magnesium to support the entire body—you won’t find this in other supplements. With BiOptimizers’ Cyber Monday Blowout sale, you can get 10% off Magnesium Breakthrough plus $200 in free gifts. Just use the code MARK.
Organic pantry, clean household, and non-toxic body care goods delivered to your door
Take a trip to the grocery store off your long list of things to do. Thrive Market delivers everything you need to stock a healthy pantry with all the holiday cooking staples—I’m stocking up on organic extra virgin olive oil, ethically sourced coffee, grain-free crackers, almond flour, cacao powder, and all my favorite herbs and spices. And they’ve got all your other household needs like dog food, shampoo, toilet paper, and dish soap covered, too. Right now, Thrive Market is offering current customers and NEW members an extra 30% off their already great prices. The discount is automatically applied through the link above.
The softest and most comfortable bed sheets and loungewear
This time of year, I like to give myself a little extra space for rest and relaxation. That’s why I’m all about the bamboo sheets, pajamas, and loungewear from Cozy Earth. They are beyond soft and comfortable and make it so easy to settle into some downtime and find a much-needed sense of calm. I also love that bamboo is way more sustainable than cotton and naturally temperature regulating, so it supports better sleep. Cozy Earth is having its biggest sale ever right now, with 45% off. Use the code HYMAN45.
My favorite supplement for mitochondrial support
When our mitochondria start to break down, we start to feel broken down. Things like poor food choices, toxins, stress, and aging all impact their efficiency and productivity, stealing our energy and vitality in the process. Mitopure is the first product to offer a precise dose of a compound derived from pomegranate, called Urolithin A, to upgrade mitochondrial function. It’s also been proven to improve muscle strength and it’s something I’ve added to my daily routine for better aging. Right now, they’re offering 10% off plus a free gift that includes 10 days of their Mitopure + Protein Powder with the purchase of any 2, 4, or 12-month plan. They use whey as their protein source, if that works for you. Use code DRFARMACY10 at checkout.
The smoothest and purest matcha green tea
To say I love polyphenols is an understatement. These super plant compounds support our gut, heart, skin, and so much more, and they played a huge part in getting my gut back in balance after I had colitis from C. diff. Matcha green tea is one of the best sources of polyphenols on the planet and the Sun Goddess Matcha from Pique Tea is my favorite—it’s quadruple toxin screened and contains more calming l-theanine and detoxifying chlorophyll than other brands. I also love that Pique sources their teas and supplements responsibly with biodiversity and quality in mind. They’re having their biggest and only sale of the year right now, of 20% off sitewide. Use code BFCM20.
Gut support from the world’s only Akkermansia supplement
When I was healing from the worst illness of my life, Akkermansia muciniphila offered me pivotal support. Akkermansia is a flagship bacterial strain that makes up 1-5% of our gut bacteria, but many of us have even less than that as we age or if we have health problems. Pendulum is the first and only company to offer supplements containing this powerful probiotic. Its Pendulum Akkermansia product encourages optimal gut health, while its Pendulum Glucose Control product helps gut health while also helping to manage Type 2 diabetes. Check out Pendulum’s products and get 25% off right now using code HYMAN25.
My favorite air-purifier
I’ve always been adamant about using a high-quality air purifier like the AirDoctor to remove all the toxins we’re exposed to indoors. Now, with the pandemic, our air quality is more concerning than ever. But there is good news—a recent independent lab test showed that the AirDoctor 3000 effectively removed 99.97% of Covid-19 from the air. It’s also been shown to remove up to 99.99% of other types bacteria and viruses, as well as things like VOCs, pollen, dander, and mold. AirDoctor is offering my community an amazing deal of UP TO 50% off with an additional free carbon filter, plus free shipping. The discount is automatically applied through the link above.
The home-delivered organic green juice I recommend
Most juices are sugar bombs that spike your insulin and leave you feeling like crap. Farmers Juice is just the opposite: amazing, organic, cold-pressed juices, each containing 1.5 pounds of vegetables, herbs, spices, and functional ingredients without the crazy amounts of sugar you’ll find in other juices. They’re made with nutrient-rich “ugly produce”and the pulp generated from their juicing is eaten by dairy cows, so it’s good for you and the planet. I even tried their green juices on my Levels continuous glucose monitor and didn’t see any spike in my blood sugar! Get $10 off your first two months ($20 total) using the code MarkSpecial.
A revolutionary approach to immune and longevity support
People are always asking me how I support my immune health. So I love sharing that my friend, mentor, and the “father of Functional Medicine,” Dr. Jeffrey Bland, developed this product called HTB Rejuvenate, based on the incredible immune properties of Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat. Plants actually have their own version of immunity, powered by phytonutrients, and we can take advantage of these compounds for our own resilience and longevity. HTB Rejuvenate is packed full of these nutrients and it’s become a staple in my daily routine. Right now, you can get 25% off single bottles and subscriptions for HTB Rejuvenate—the discount is automatically applied through the link above.
I hope you find some great gifts and new things to level up your health from this list of my personal favorites.
