Published studies document that people who eat the most fruits and vegetables have a much lower incidence of health problems. Few people, however, consistently eat enough plant foods to protect against common age-related decline, and commercial multivitamins do not provide all of the vital plant components needed to maintain good health. Life Extension Mix provides a broad array of vegetable/fruit extracts.
Life Extension Mix now contains the sodium selenite form of selenium in addition to L-selenomethionine and Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine. Each one of these selenium compounds provides unique biological benefits. The new Life Extension Mix also provides a small amount of gamma tocopherol (40 mg) as part of natural mixed tocopherols which include natural vitamin E. Compared to synthetic vitamin E, the natural form is more bioavailable to the body. Most Life Extension members take an additional 200 mg of gamma tocopherol in other supplements.
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 commercial 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 an olive extract standardized to provide the best-documented polyphenol called hydroxytyrosol.
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 proved one of the most beneficial 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 of 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, including gamma tocopherol, and inhibit the formation of an inflammatory precursor called arachidonic acid.
Life Extension Mix contains wild blueberry extract, standardized to help maintain optimal optimal neuronal function. Pterostilbene is a compound naturally found in blueberries and grapes that has been shown to have beneficial, antiaging 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.
The new Life Extension Mix utilizes a natural vitamin E blend that provides alpha and a small amount of gamma tocopherol (36 mg). Compared to synthetic vitamin E, the natural form is more bioavailable to the body.
N-acetyl-L-cysteine suppresses free radicals inside the cell and maintains healthy glutathione levels. Taurine may protect against free radicals between cells and supports eye health.
Life Extension Mix contains the sodium selenite, L-selenomethionine, and Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine forms of selenium. Some 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 an optimal form of chromium to help maintain arterial wall structure and already normal glucose levels.
Magnesium helps protect arteries and heart valves, and supports heart and brain cells. Life Extension Mix provides high potencies of six different forms of magnesium to saturate the body with this life-saving mineral.
Maintaining high levels of acetylcholine in the brain helps support cognitive function and memory. Life Extension contains two forms of choline which help support acetylcholine production

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have been taking this product since a couple of weeks. As compared with other popular brands , it seems to be easily assimilable. I'm not necessarily taking the full amount that is suggested (14 capsules per day). However I feel that what I take is quite enough. I am under the impression that I eat food in addition to vitamins and minerals and consequently, my body is fed in well balanced way. One of the reasons I chose this brand was because it contains folate rather than folic acid. Even though it is highly priced, I believe the ingredients alone are worth the price of the product.
