Regenerate Aging Cells

Since 2001, Life Extension® has been seeking a way to reverse a mechanism of aging that may not be adequately addressed by healthy lifestyles. NAD+, a compound found in young cells, turns “off” genes that accelerate degenerative processes. After 13 years of research, an effective and affordable method of boosting cellular NAD+ is finally available.

Revitalizing Skin From The Inside Out

With aging, skin loses lipids called ceramides, resulting in wrinkles, age spots, and dry patches. Studies verify that taking a ceramide extract orally allows ceramides to enter the bloodstream and produce moist, supple, and more youthful-looking skin from the inside out.

Despite billions spent on cholesterol-lowering drugs, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death. Mainstream medicine overlooks the critical role of the endothelium (inner arterial lining) in maintaining vascular health. Studies continue to reveal that pomegranate protects the endothelium via multiple mechanisms.

As We See It

When aging bodies lose their ability to repair DNA damage, the result is illness and death. In a recent study, scientists cultured E. coli bacteria to resist high-intensity radiation, enabling DNA repair to increase to the point it could withstand 1,000 times the radiation that would kill humans. This study indicates how we may be able to engineer our own human genes to ward off degenerative aging processes.
