Why we need a multi-nutrient supplement
You hear it almost every day from government health agencies and private organizations: Americans need to eat more fruits and vegetables in _x000d_order to live longer.
However, despite constant media publicity, the majority of Americans do not ingest enough fruits and vegetables each day. In fact, a John _x000d_Hopkins study found that only 28% and 32% of American adults met the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines for fruit and _x000d_vegetable intake respectively.
Fortunately, Life Extension Mix is here to help. This state-of-the-art multi-nutrient formula is jam-packed with the purest and most potent _x000d_forms of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and unique vegetable, fruit, and botanical extracts. In every daily dose of Life Extension Mix, you'll _x000d_get an extensive array of nutrients, including:
Found in dark red fruits, delphinidins are potent anthocyanin compounds that activate the production of nitric oxide, enabling vascular _x000d_relaxation and supporting healthy blood pressure. They can also help to ease inflammatory factors and glycation, stimulate the immune system, and _x000d_maintain healthy blood sugar levels within normal range, which helps to control metabolic balance. With Life Extension Mix, you get the same _x000d_amount of delphinidins found in 3¼ cups of raspberries or 5¾ cups of dried plums.
In addition to its already broad spectrum of botanical extracts, our formula also contains trans-pterostilbene — a compound found _x000d_naturally in blueberries and grapes that has been shown to have beneficial anti-aging effects on gene expression and to promote healthy cognitive _x000d_function. According to Dr. Agnes Rimando, a leading expert in the biology of stilbenes, "Stilbenes have diverse pharmacological activities which _x000d_include enhanced insulin sensitivity and increased lifespan."
Glycation occurs when sugars react with your body's proteins and lipids, forming non-functioning cross-linked structures called Advanced _x000d_Glycation End Products (AGEs). While glycation is a normal consequence of aging, it is far from desirable. In addition, the effect of glycation _x000d_can be seen outwardly in the form of cross-linked proteins in normal aging skin.
To combat these effects, each daily dose of Life Extension Mix provides 100 mg of the expensive pyridoxal 5'-phosphate — a metabolically _x000d_active B6 that has been shown to protect against glycation reactions.
Standardized pomegranate extract
Published studies show that pomegranate helps maintain healthy cardiovascular function and healthy DNA structure in prostate cells. Our _x000d_pomegranate extract is standardized to provide the biologically active punicalagins that are so unique to this fruit. These punicalagins are 100% _x000d_water-soluble, have a remarkable 95% absorption rate, and are highly potent at inhibiting free radicals. That means that they not only absorb _x000d_much better than other natural antioxidants, but they also have a superior antioxidant capacity.
A daily dose of Life Extension Mix provides the punicalagins and other polyphenols found in up to 2.6 ounces of pomegranate juice.
The potent natural antioxidants blueberry anthocyanins have demonstrated properties that extend well beyond inhibiting free radicals, while _x000d_blueberry's active constituent (pterostilbene) promotes healthy lipid and glucose levels for those already within normal range.Even more exciting _x000d_is that these blueberry constituents (pterostilbene and anthocyanins) may help protect DNA structure. Life Extension Mix features the wild _x000d_blueberry extract that provides the most active constituents found in this health-promoting fruit.
Standardized green tea extract
In recent years, a multitude of positive studies have been published about the health benefits of green tea. The active "polyphenol" _x000d_constituents of green tea have been found to possess remarkable biological activities that include inhibiting LDL oxidation and neuronal _x000d_peroxidation, while maintaining healthy DNA structure.
Life Extension Mix's daily dose contains 325 mg of a decaffeinated green tea extract that is standardized to provide 98% of the active _x000d_polyphenols that scientists attribute to green tea's multiple health benefits. That's equivalent to drinking about one and a half cups of green _x000d_tea per day. What's more, green tea powdered extracts have been shown to absorb 60% to 90% better into the bloodstream compared with drinking _x000d_green tea itself.
Standardized vegetable extracts
Most multivitamin supplements provide no vegetable extracts at all, but Life Extension Mix offers a wide array of them, including 8 mg of _x000d_luteolin, a flavonoid found in parsley, basil, celery, and other foods. Luteolin has been shown to provide DNA protection from oxidative damage _x000d_and to inhibit excess levels of cytokines such as interleukin-4 and interleukin-13.
Broccoli contains several active constituents, with sulforaphane being the most significant because of its unique detoxification and DNA-_x000d_protecting effects. Our formula features a concentrated broccoli mixture with standardized extracts of sulforaphane and glucosinolates, _x000d_compounds attributed to broccoli's multiple protective benefits, as well as gene-protecting chlorophyll.
A daily dose also provides 200 mg of calcium D-glucarate (supplying 175 mg of D-glucarate), a phytonutrient found in grapefruit, apples, _x000d_oranges, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. D-glucarate effectively supports a detoxification process that helps to remove DNA toxins from the _x000d_body.
Life Extension Mix also contains 60 times more lutein and 10 times more lycopene than popular one-per-day vitamins. Lutein, an extract found in _x000d_corn and in leafy greens such as kale and spinach, has been shown to help maintain critical pigments in the eye macula, while lycopene from _x000d_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, _x000d_grape seed, and citrus bioflavonoids to provide healthy circulation throughout the body and 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 _x000d_function. It also includes a customized blend of blackberry, cranberry, plum, elderberry, persimmon, cherry, and other fruits that studies _x000d_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 _x000d_provide polyphenols like hydroxytyrosol that have been shown to protect against LDL oxidation, suppress free radicals, and stabilize cell _x000d_membranes.
Sesame seed lignan extract
Sesame and its lignans have a broad range of applications in human health, including increasing human tissue levels of gamma _x000d_tocopherol,enhancing the beneficial effects of fish oils, and helping to maintain already-normal cholesterol/LDL levels in humans. Life Extension _x000d_ Mix provides 10 mg of a sesame lignan extract to supply the direct benefits of the lignans and to augment the effects of vitamin E and other _x000d_nutrients in the body such as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Nutrients to maintain healthy blood glucose levels
Chromium, magnesium, and biotin are necessary to maintain healthy blood sugar for those already within normal range. In addition to highly _x000d_absorbable forms of magnesium and a super high-potency biotin, Life Extension Mix contains 500 mcg of Crominex 3+, a highly stable, biologically _x000d_active cutting-edge chromium complex. Studies on the benefits of chromium supplementation show that doses exceeding 200 mcg a day are required _x000d_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 _x000d_density and healthy cell division. In fact, a review in the New England Journal of Medicine suggested that recommended intakes for vitamin D are _x000d_inadequate and need to be increased to at least 800 IU of vitamin D3 per day. Currently, most experts in the field believe that intakes of _x000d_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. _x000d_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 _x000d_of preformed vitamin A.
Life Extension Mix contains 1.25 mg of C3G to support eye health. Found in blackberries and black currants, this powerful antioxidant has _x000d_been shown to regenerate rhodopsin — a compound that absorbs light in the retina — and enhance night vision. In one study, just 50 mg of a berry _x000d_extract concentrate containing C3G helped aging individuals see better in the darkness after 30 minutes.
Bioavailable C3G enhances other functions in the body as well, and its potent antioxidant properties protect tissues and support endothelial _x000d_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 _x000d_folate, which is up to 7 times more bioavailable than ordinary folic acid.
Selenium and Apigenin
Life Extension Mix now contains three potent forms of selenium (SelenoExcell, Se-methyl-selenocysteine, and sodium selenite). Also newly _x000d_included is apigenin, a powerful bioflavonoid found in many vegetables and fruits which boosts cell protection.
