Supplement Benefits

What is a good, basic nutrition program?

For a foundational supplement regimen, Life Extension suggests starting with a multivitamin, CoQ10, and fish oil supplement. A multivitamin is the cornerstone of every nutritional program, and it should provide all of the essential vitamins and minerals for one's daily needs, with the exception of calcium. The most comprehensive formula that we have to offer is our Life Extension Mix. For calcium, we suggest considering one of our Bone Restore formulas. For convenience and cost savings, we offer our Core Health Essentials Kit, which provides a 30-day supply of the following four products: Two-Per-Day, Super Omega-3, CoQ10, and Super Bio-Curcumin.

How do I take Life Extension Mix multivitamins?

Life Extension Mix is available in powder, tablet, or capsule form. Take three scoops of Life Extension Mix Powder per day, one with each meal. The tablet version has a serving size of eight per day, and it is suggested to take three with breakfast, two with lunch, and three with dinner. If you prefer capsules, the serving size is twelve per day, and it is suggested to take four with breakfast, four with lunch and four with dinner.

Why is it necessary to take twelve capsules but only eight tablets of the Life Extension Mix?

Life Extension Mix tablets are larger than the capsules and more tightly packed. A day's supply of Life Extension Mix can be compressed into eight tablets. For those who do not want to take as many pills, we offer multivitamins that are more accommodating called our One-Per-Day or Two-Per-Day formulas.

What is the difference between Life Extension Mix and Life Extension Mix with Extra Niacin? Which one should I take?

Life Extension Mix contains 190 mg of niacin per daily dose, which means you will be getting a little over 63 mg with each meal. Life Extension Mix with Extra Niacin, however, contains 862 mg of niacin per daily dose, which is 287 mg per meal. Extra niacin is used by individuals looking to support healthy cholesterol levels. It is important to note that this high level of niacin can create what is called a "niacin flush", which is characterized by a harmless sensation of warmth, heat, and tingling accompanied by a temporary reddening of the skin that can last an hour or more. People who choose the regular Life Extension Mix formula do not usually experience the "niacin flush".

Individuals with liver disease should use caution with high levels of niacin, such as those found in our Life Extension Mix with Extra Niacin. Consult your physician if you have an elevation of liver enzymes or enlargement of the liver.
