Life Extension Mix Nutritional Supplements +Niacin / Multivitamins - Dose
The newest ingredients in the Life Extension formula are two standardized blueberry extracts that provide the most active constituents found in this health-promoting fruit. Blueberry anthocyanins are considered nature's most potent antioxidants and have demonstrated properties that extend well beyond suppressing free radicals. Pterostilbene, another blueberry constituent, helps maintain healthy lipid and glucose levels in those already within normal range. Even more exciting is that through their unique biological effects; pterostilbene and anthocyanins may help support DNA structure. The new Life Extension Mix provides blueberry extracts standardized with both anthocyanins and pterostilbene.
Standardized Green Tea Extract
Scientists have looked at the active polyphenol constituents of green tea and have found that they possess remarkable biological activity at the cellular level. Researchers have also identified multiple mechanisms by which green tea extract helps maintain healthy DNA, protect healthy LDL oxidation, neuronal peroxidation, and a host of other adverse structural and functional age-related changes.1-7
The new Life Extension Mix provides 325 mg of a decaffeinated green tea extract that is standardized to contain 302 mg of the polyphenols that scientists attribute to green tea's health benefits. The amount of polyphenols (including EGCG) in Life Extension Mix is equivalent to drinking about 3-6 cups of green tea per day.
Broccoli is touted as one of the most important vegetables to help maintain healthy DNA. Broccoli contains several active constituents, with sulphoraphane being the most significant because of its unique detoxification and DNA protecting effects. The new Life Extension Mix provides a concentrated broccoli mixture that provides standardized extracts of sulphoraphane and glucosinolates, two compounds attributed to broccoli's multiple protective benefits. Broccoli is also a natural source of gene protecting chlorophyll.9-13
D-glucarate is a botanical extract found in grapefruit, apples, oranges, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. D-glucarate effectively supports a detoxification process that helps to remove DNA toxins from the body.14,15 The daily dose of Life Extension Mix provides 200mg D-glucarate.
Lutein, an extract found in spinach and collard greens, has been shown to help maintain critical pigments in the eye macula, while the carotenoid alpha-carotene has demonstrated antioxidant activity far grater than beta-carotene. Lycopene from tomatoes has shown potent effects in helping to maintain healthy DNA structure and protect against LDL oxidation. Life Extension Mix contains 60 times more lutein and 10 times more lycopene compared to Centrum(R). Most multivitamin supplements provide no vegetable extracts whatsoever.
Ellagic acid is a detoxifying agent found in raspberries, strawberries, and other fruit. Ellagic acid has demonstrated DNA-protecting properties, including the ability to bind to toxins and neutralize them. Studies have also shown that ellagic acid may protect against chromosome damage and reduce the effects of chemically induced hepatic structural degeneration. Life Extension mix contains a raspberry and pomegranate fruit extract to deliver 50 mg of ellagic acid in each daily dose.
The media has publicized the multiple benefits of fruits such as blackberry, cranberry, elderberry, cherry, plums and persimmon. Life Extension Mix has a customized blend of these and other fruits that studies indicate provide multiple favorable effects in the body.
Olive oil consumption is one of the important factors behind the health benefits of the "Mediterranean Diet."16,17 Researchers have discovered that there are up to 300 times more polyphenol compounds in olive water compared to oil.18,19 Olive polyphenols have been the subject of numerous studies pointing toward their benefits in many different areas, including helping to protect against LDL oxidation, suppressing free radicals, and stabilizing cell memranes.20-22 Life Extension Mix contains a potent olive juice extract standardized to contain 7 percent of the best-documented polyphenol called hydroxytyrosol.23 The amount of hydroxytyrosol in Life Extension Mix is equivalent to drinking one ounce of virgin olive oil per day.24-25
Sesame Lignans Enhance the Effects
of Vitamin E
Sesame lignans increase the anti-inflammatory index of fish oils and help maintain healthy cholesterol/LDL levels in those already within normal range.28-31 Life Extension Mix contains 10 mg sesame lignan extract to provide the direct benefits of the lignans and augment the effects of vitamin E and other nutrients in the body such as gamma-tocopherol and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Maintaining Healthy Blood Glucose Levels
High Potency Vitamin D3
Life Extension Mix saves time and money by combining the most popular nutrient supplements in one product, eliminating the need to take separate bottles of B-complex, vitamins C and E, mineral supplements and much more that would be required to achieve the same effects. Life Extension Mix supplies the most powerful antioxidants, including water and fat soluble vitamin C, the ideal form of alpha vitamin E, and plant extracts that help protect against cellular DNA damage. Other ingredients in Life Extension Mix enhance beneficial DNA methylation patterns, and help maintain glycemic control and healthy levels of LDL in those already within normal range.
Life Extension Mix is the cornerstone of a comprehensive supplement program because it provides so many well-studied nutrients. If you are on a budget, Life Extension Mix provides the best cost per milligram value. With the addition of two standardized blueberry extracts, Life Extension Mix has become an even greater value.
