Published scientific studies document that people who eat the most fruits and vegetables have much lower incidences of health problems. Few people, however, consistently eat enough plant foods to protect against common age-related decline,1-3 and commercial multivitamins do not provide all of the vital plant components needed to maintain good health.
Life Extension Mix™ has been upgraded to include a rich source of anthocyanins from maqui berry and a rich source of proanthocyanidins, tart cherry. These potent plant-derived antioxidants promote cardiovascular wellness, support comfortable muscle and joint function, and support blood sugar levels already in normal range and have been added at no additional cost. Life Extension Mix™ is available in tablet, capsule, and powder forms, with or without copper, and with or without extra niacin.
Scientists have identified multiple mechanisms by which green tea extract helps protect against LDL oxidation, neuronal oxidation, and a host of other structural and functional age-related changes. Life Extension Mix™ provides more green tea extract than found in other formulations.
Broccoli is one of the vegetables best documented to protect healthy DNA. The broccoli concentrate in Life Extension Mix™ is standardized to provide sulforaphane and other glucosinolates, compounds responsible for broccoli's protective benefits.
Olive polyphenols help protect against LDL oxidation, quench free radicals, and stabilize cell membranes. Life Extension Mix™ contains a potent olive extract that provides the best-documented polyphenol called hydroxytyrosol in an amount equivalent to drinking one ounce of virgin olive oil a day.
Luteolin is a flavonoid found in parsley, artichoke, basil, celery, and other foods. It has shown the ability to help protect against DNA oxidative damage. When measured against 27 other citrus flavonoids, luteolin showed one of the most beneficial effects at maintaining healthy DNA. Luteolin also suppresses excess levels of interleukin-6 and interleukin-1b. Life Extension Mix™ contains a standardized dose of 8 mg luteolin.
Lycopene is the red carotenoid in tomatoes that supports a healthy prostate and helps promote healthy lipid profiles for those already within a normal range. Lutein is found in spinach and collard greens and has been shown to help maintain eye macula pigment structure. D-glucarate is found in grapefruit, apples, oranges, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. D-glucarate supports a detoxification process that helps to remove DNA toxins.
Pomegranate may be the most effective plant to help maintain optimal endothelial function. This pomegranate extract is standardized to provide the punicalagins and other polyphenols found in up to 2.6 ounces of pomegranate juice.
Sesame lignans increase tissue levels of vitamin E and gamma tocopherol, and inhibit the formation of an inflammatory precursor called arachidonic acid.
Wild blueberry extract is concentrated and standardized to help maintain optimal neuronal function. Pterostilbene is a compound naturally found in blueberries and grapes that has been shown to have beneficial, anti-aging effects on gene expression and to promote healthy cognitive function. Cyanidin-3-Glucoside is a berry compound that promotes healthy function of the retina to help support night vision.
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate helps protect against glycation reactions, a toxic process in which sugars bind to lipids and proteins to form non-functional structures in the body.
Vitamin D3 helps maintain healthy bone density and DNA. There is five times more vitamin D in Life Extension Mix™ compared to conventional multivitamins.
Life Extension Mix™ contains only the dry powder form of vitamin E. This natural form of vitamin E (succinate) has been shown to promote healthy DNA better than other forms.
N-acetyl-L-cysteine suppresses free radicals inside the cells and maintains healthy glutathione levels. Taurine may protect against free radicals between cells and supports eye health.
Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer; however, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
Zinc is often poorly absorbed, but Life Extension Mix™ provides two of the most bioavailable forms of zinc. Boron is not only needed to maintain healthy bone density but may also help promote healthy prostate cell function.
Life Extension Mix™ provides a high amount of chromium to help maintain arterial wall structure and already normal glucose levels. We have upgraded our chromium-containing products with Crominex® 3+, a highly stable and biologically active form of chromium blended with Capros® and PrimaVie®.
Magnesium helps protect arteries and heart valves, and supports heart and brain cells. Life Extension Mix™ provides six different forms of magnesium to saturate the body with this lifesaving mineral.
Cholinergic nutrients help maintain high levels of acetylcholine in the brain to help support cognitive function and memory.
