Scientific studies have shown that individuals that eat high amounts of fruits and vegetables have a much lower likelihood of developing health problems. Unfortunately, few individuals eat enough plant foods to protect themselves against common age-related decline and disease. and commercial multivitamins do not provide all of the vital plant components needed to maintain good health. Life Extension Mix multivitamin provides a full-spectrum array of fruit and vegetable extracts.

Most Life Extension members take an additional 200 mg of gamma tocopherol in the form of other supplements.
Scientists have discovered multiple ways by which green tea extract helps protect against LDL cholesterol oxidation, neuronal oxidation, and a host of other structural and functional age-related changes. In other words, green tea extract is a powerful antioxidant which can also lower bad cholesterol levels. Life Extension Mix™ provides more green tea extract than found in commercial formulations.
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.
Broccoli is included because it is one of the vegetables best documented to protect healthy DNA. The broccoli concentrate in Life Extension Mix™ multivitamin is standardized to provide sulforaphane and other glucosinolates, compounds which are responsible for broccoli’s numerous health benefits.
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.

Pterostilbene is a compound naturally found in blueberries and grapes that has been shown to have beneficial, anti aging 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 is important to helping maintain healthy bones and bone density and DNA. There is five times more vitamin D in Life Extension Mix™ multivitamin as compared to a conventional multivitamin.
The new Life Extension Mix™ multivitamin utilizes a natural vitamin E blend which provides alpha and a small amount of gamma tocopherol (36 mg). As compared to synthetic vitamin E, the natural form is more bio available to your body.
Life Extension Mix™ multivitamin contains the sodium selenite, L-selenomethionine, and Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine forms of selenium. Recent evidence has shown 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 a mineral that is often poorly absorbed by your body. Life Extension Mix™ multivitamin provides your body with two of the most bioavailable (absorbable) forms of zinc. Boron is not only needed to maintain healthy bone density but it may help to promote healthy prostate cell function.
