You hear it almost every day from government health agencies and private organizations. The unanimous directive is for Americans to eat more fruits and vegetables to live longer. Despite constant media publicity, the majority of Americans do not ingest enough fruits and vegetables each day. In fact, a Johns Hopkins study found that only 28% and 32% of American adults met the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines for fruit and vegetable intake respectively. Yet, scientists are increasingly telling Americans that they must consume these kinds of plants in order to avoid a myriad of age-related problems.

I've tried many different multivitamin formulas (some of them very "strong" and expensive) for about 20 years and none of them have done anything that I can discern. This LEF Mix, however, immediately made me feel better. I cannot praise this enough. Your results may vary, but for me it is absolutely worth the cost and the 9 tablets a day (considering what's in here, you would be hard pressed to attain the same supplementation for less money or fewer pills). I take it every day and would never miss a dose. Plus it is so "complete" that practically the only thing you need to take in addition is Fish Oil. Highly recommended.
I have been using this and other Life Extension products for many years. I think it's the best multi vitamin. The company upgrades the formula every few years and seems committed to constant improvement. I take many other products in addition to this because no multi-vitamin can provide the optimum amount of everything. For example, optimum amounts of fish oil and vitamin C alone are several capsules per meal. Another reason I like Life Extension Mix is that the company, Life Extension, designs its other products around this multi-vitamin so I can add other supplements and have a balanced program without too much of one thing. If I could only afford one product, I'd choose Life Extension Mix.
