Life Extension Mix™ is a state-of-the-art multi-nutrient formula jam-packed with the purest and most potent forms of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and unique vegetable, fruit, and botanical extracts. In every daily dose of Life Extension Mix™, you'll get an extensive array of nutrients:
Bioactive Quercetin Phytosome
Life Extension Mix™ contains 5 mg of quercetin that has been integrated into a phytosome. A phytosome is a phospholipid sphere that encases a botanical compound, aiding in its absorption and making it more bioavailable: this quercetin is up to 50 times more bioavailable than standard quercetin. Quercetin supports cellular health, endothelial health, and healthy immune function.
Found in dark red fruits, delphinidins are potent anthocyanin compounds that activate the production of nitric oxide, promoting vascular relaxation and blood pressure support. They can also help inhibit inflammatory factors and glycation, support immune health, and help maintain healthy blood sugar levels within normal range.
Glycation is a normal part of the aging process that can affect your health. To help inhibit glycation, each daily dose of Life Extension Mix™ provides 100 mg of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate — a metabolically active B6 that has been shown to help inhibit glycation reactions.
Standardized Pomegranate Extract
Pomegranate supports healthy cardiovascular function and DNA structure in prostate cells. Our pomegranate extract is standardized to provide the biologically active punicalagins that are so unique to this fruit. These punicalagins are 100% water-soluble, have a remarkable 95% absorption rate, and are highly potent at inhibiting free radicals.
Blueberry anthocyanin compounds help inhibit free radicals, while blueberry's other active constituents promote healthy lipid and glucose levels for those already within normal range. Even more exciting: these blueberry constituents may help protect DNA structure. Life Extension Mix™ features the wild blueberry extract packed with active blueberry constituents.
Standardized Green Tea Extract
In recent years, the active polyphenol compounds in green tea have been found to help inhibit LDL oxidation, neuronal peroxidation, and help maintain healthy DNA structure. Life Extension Mix's daily dose contains 325 mg of a decaffeinated green tea extract standardized to provide 98% of the active polyphenols that scientists attribute to green tea's multiple health benefits.
Standardized Vegetable Extracts
Life Extension Mix™ offers a wide array of vegetable extracts, including 8 mg of luteolin, a flavonoid found in parsley, basil, celery, and other foods. Luteolin has been shown to inhibit DNA oxidation and to inhibit excess levels of cytokines such as interleukin-4 and interleukin-13.6
Our formula features a concentrated broccoli mixture with standardized extracts of sulforaphane and glucosinolates, compounds attributed to broccoli's detoxification, DNA, and other health benefits, as well as chlorophyll. A daily dose also provides 200 mg of calcium D-glucarate (supplying 175 mg of D-glucarate), a phytonutrient found in grapefruit, apples, oranges, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. D-glucarate supports detoxification processes.
Life Extension Mix™ also contains lutein and lycopene. Lutein, an extract found in leafy greens such as kale and spinach, has been shown to help maintain critical pigments in the eye macula. Lycopene from tomatoes helps to maintain DNA structure and protect against LDL oxidation.
Standardized Fruit Extracts
In addition to our standardized pomegranate and wild blueberry extracts, Life Extension Mix™ also features fruit extracts such as bilberry, grape seed, and citrus bioflavonoids to promote healthy circulation and help maintain healthy DNA.
Our unique formula is fortified with maqui berry and tart cherry for their antioxidant benefits for heart health as well as muscle and joint function support. It also includes a customized blend of blackberry, cranberry, plum, elderberry, persimmon, cherry, and other fruits that studies indicate provide multiple favorable effects on the body.
Numerous studies have pointed toward the many benefits of olive polyphenols, and Life Extension Mix™ contains an olive extract standardized to provide polyphenols like hydroxytyrosol that have been shown to help inhibit LDL oxidation, free radicals, and promote healthy cell membranes.
Sesame Seed Lignan Extract
Sesame lignans promote healthy levels of gamma tocopherol, enhance the beneficial effects of fish oils, and helping to maintain already-normal cholesterol/LDL levels. Life Extension Mix™ provides 10 mg of a sesame lignan extract to supply the direct benefits of the lignans and to augment the effects of vitamin E174 and other nutrients such as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Nutrients to Maintain Healthy Blood Glucose Levels
Chromium, magnesium, and biotin help maintain healthy blood sugar for those already within normal range. In addition to highly absorbable forms of magnesium and biotin, Life Extension Mix™ contains 500 mcg of Crominex® 3+, a biologically active chromium complex. Studies on the benefits of chromium supplementation show that doses exceeding 200 mcg a day are required for optimal effects.
High-Potency Vitamin D3
Researchers today are concerned that many people are not supplementing with enough vitamin D, a critical nutrient for maintaining bone density and healthy cell division. Currently, most experts in the field believe that intakes of between 1,000 and 10,000 IU for adults will lead to a more healthy level of serum 25(OH)D, at approximately 50-80 ng/mL.
Each daily dose of Life Extension Mix™ provides 2,000 IU of vitamin D3. What's more, this formula contains only 500 IU of preformed vitamin A. Preformed (not beta-carotene) vitamin A may interfere with the benefits of vitamin D, yet most multivitamins contain between 5,000 and 25,000 IU of preformed vitamin A.
Life Extension Mix™ contains 1.25 mg of C3G to support eye health. Found in blackberries and black currants, this potent compound promotes healthy levels of rhodopsin — a compound that absorbs light in the retina — and enhance night vision.
In one study, just 50 mg of a berry extract concentrate containing C3G helped aging individuals see better in the darkness after 30 minutes. Bioavailable C3G also supports other body functions, has potent antioxidant properties, and supports endothelial cell health.
Folate helps maintain homocysteine levels within the normal range. One dose of our formula contains 400 mcg of the bioactive 5-MTHF form of folate, which is up to 7 times more bioavailable than ordinary folic acid.
Selenium and Apigenin
Life Extension Mix™ contains three potent forms of selenium (SelenoExcell®, Se-methyl-selenocysteine, and sodium selenite). Also newly included is apigenin, a powerful bioflavonoid found in many vegetables and fruits which boosts cell protection.
