Life Extension Mix contains 93 unique vegetable, fruit, and herbal extracts along with high-potency amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and special antioxidants. It is fortified with botanical extracts that help maintain healthy cells via physiological processes separate from traditional antioxidants.
Published studies document that people who eat the most fruits and vegetables have a much lower incidence of health problems. Few people, however, consistently eat enough plant foods to protect against common age-related decline, and commercial multivitamins do not provide all of the vital plant components needed to maintain good health. Life Extension provides a broad array of vegetable/fruit extracts.
Life Extension Mix now contains the sodium selenite form of selenium in addition to L-selenomethionine and Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine. Each one of these selenium compounds provides unique biological benefits. The new Life Extension Mix also provides a small amount of gamma tocopherol as part of natural tocopherols which include natural vitamin E. Compared to synthetic vitamin E, the natural form is more bioavailable to the body. Most Life Extension members take an additional 200 mg of gamma tocopherol in other supplements.
