What makes Life Extension formulations different from commercial varieties?

Life Extension members insist on our premium-grade nutrient formulas to protect their precious health.

What differentiates Life Extension from anything else on the commercial market are the unique benefits that our scientifically-designed nutrient formulations provide to the aging body.

For example, hundreds of commercial companies sell fish oil softgels. The published medical literature, however, indicates that a combination of fish and olive oil polyphenols provide crucial additive benefits.

Fish oil is highly susceptible to oxidation. Scientific studies indicate that sesame lignans protect against fish oil oxidation and enhance the beneficial effects of EPA and DHA in the body.

That is why so many Life Extension members choose Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract. It is the most advanced scientifically-designed fish oil supplement available anywhere and has received the International Fish Oil Standards’ highest 5-Star rating.

Healthy Bone Density Requires More Than Just Calcium

Today’s epidemic of bone loss has resulted in many women taking calcium supplements. Yet peer-reviewed scientific studies make it abundantly clear that a wide range of nutrients beyond calcium are needed to maintain healthy bone density.

Life Extension members obtain the full spectrum of bone-building nutrients in comprehensive formulas like Bone Restore that are available only from Life Extension.

Why Your Resveratrol May Not Deliver Expected Results

Media reports on the anti-aging effects of resveratrol have turned this nutrient into a blockbuster. Yet few commercial dietary supplements provide 100% of the trans-resveratrol needed to emulate the favorable studies that news reporters have gotten so excited about.

Ignored is the hard science showing the additive and synergistic benefits of combining trans-resveratrol with quercetin, fisetin, proanthocyanidins, and trans-pterostilbene.

Life Extension’s Optimized Resveratrol with Synergistic Grape-Berry Actives or the CR Mimetic Longevity Formula provide the full spectrum of effects one would expect when taking a resveratrol supplement.

Is Your Curcumin Being Absorbed?

So many forward-thinking doctors are extolling the virtues of curcumin that it has become a household word in the realm of health enthusiasts.

The problem with curcumin is that relatively little is absorbed into the bloodstream, thus necessitating large doses to obtain the desired benefits.

Life Extension uses a patented delivery system to enhance the absorption of curcumin by up to seven times. This enables a person to obtain the benefits of over 2,500 mg of conventional curcumin in just one 400-mg Super Bio-Curcumin® capsule. A new Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones deliver even more active plant extracts.

Is Your CoQ10 Enough?

Life Extension members rely on Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ to help increase ATP mitochondrial energy output. Of equal concern is the decline in the number of mitochondria in aging cells that leads to a precipitous drop in energy production.

An essential nutrient called PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) has been shown to support mitochondrial biogenesis (the formation of new mitochondria) by activating genes that promote new mitochondria generation for more youthful cellular function.

A potent antioxidant, PQQ also supports mitochondrial function by protecting mitochondria from free radical attack, favorably interacting with genes involved in mitochondrial health, and supporting the defense of mitochondrial DNA. 

And when taken in conjunction with CoQ10, PQQ works to enhance mitochondrial energy output and support cognitive health. Life Extension members can obtain ubiquinol CoQ10 and PQQ in ONE advanced formula!

Are You D-ficient?

The average dose of vitamin D in typical multivitamins is only around 600 IU, far lower than the minimum amount needed to achieve optimal blood levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D.

Life Extension conducted its own study of over 13,000 blood results and found 85% of the supplement users tested had insufficient 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. This prompted Life Extension to double the potency of vitamin D in its multi-nutrient formulas (to 2,000 IU) and recommend that most members take an additional 5,000 IU of vitamin D on top of that!

No nutrient has more recent scientific substantiation than vitamin D, yet those who rely on commercial multivitamins are obtaining woefully inadequate amounts of vitamin D.

Life Extension members who use either Life Extension Mix™ (tablets, capsules or powder) or Two-Per-Day Tablets or Capsules obtain far more vitamin D than commercial brands, plus far greater potencies of other vitamins and minerals.
