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 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 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.1
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 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, including:
Found in dark red fruits, delphinidins are potent anthocyanin compounds that activate the production of nitric oxide, enabling vascular relaxation and supporting healthy blood pressure.1?4 They can also help to ease inflammatory factors5?8 and glycation,9 stimulate the immune system, and maintain healthy blood sugar levels within normal range, which helps to control metabolic balance. With Life Extension Mix?, you get the same amount of delphinidins found in 3¬ cups of raspberries or 5? cups of dried plums.
In addition to its already broad spectrum of botanical extracts, our formula also contains trans-pterostilbene ? a compound found naturally in blueberries and grapes that has been shown to have beneficial anti-aging effects10?14 on gene expression and to promote healthy cognitive function.14?19 According to Dr. Agnes Rimando, a leading expert in the biology of stilbenes, "Stilbenes have diverse pharmacological activities which include enhanced insulin sensitivity and increased lifespan."20
Glycation occurs when sugars react with your body's proteins and lipids, forming non-functioning cross-linked structures called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs).21 While glycation is a normal consequence of aging, it is far from desirable.22?26 In addition, the effect of glycation can be seen outwardly in the form of cross-linked proteins in normal aging skin.27,28
To combat these effects, each daily dose of Life Extension Mix? provides 100 mg of the expensive pyridoxal 5'-phosphate ? a metabolically active B6 that has been shown to protect against glycation reactions.29-31
Standardized pomegranate extract
Published studies show that pomegranate helps maintain healthy cardiovascular function32-37 and healthy DNA structure in prostate cells.38-43 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,44 and are highly potent at inhibiting free radicals.45 That means that they not only absorb much better than other natural antioxidants, but t
