Although dated (1982), "Life Extension" is an extraordinarily well researched book, written for "easy" grasp by laymen and scientists alike.The authors studied aging for decades and focus on how aging works. How others can slow down YOUR aging, and how YOU CAN SLOW AGING DOWN. A complete handbook, valuable to anyone. I don't know of any more contemporary book that has quite the info, quite the punch, quite the assistance.

This is THE Book that started the entire Supplemental Health Industry. Before this book there were the One-A-Day Vitamins, and Fred FlintStone Kid Vitamins, and a few others. After this book and almost within 3 months of it's release, an explosion of Products were created based on the information from the Authors, scientifically proven data. To this day, the prime ingredients for bodybuilding pre workout drinks consist of same formula established by the Authors. Nobody has come close to providing this much information in one book that would change the Health Industry forever. This book has proved itself over the years with so many copycats and products based on their formulas. I read this book at 12 years old, then bought the Companion book. I followed it's Life Extension protocols, and people say I look half my age. I attribute my good health to the Life Extension Books.

The information in this book is still generally ahead of what is available to me from other sources. The Language is clear. What I see is the result of a huge amount of work, performed by two people who really want to help. Thanks, Sandy and Durk !

Life Extension - Is a fascinating book and is very well documented and researched. It helped me to understand the causes and progression of aging and disease and what preventative measures can be taken to prevent them or slow it down. One chapter I was particularly drawn to was the chapter on vitamin C. The author gives a cohesive and clear explanation of the effects of vitamin C on the healing process and the immune system. One is left with the impression that vitamin C is a miracle drug. For several years now, I have been taking 3 doses of Vitamin C daily in approximately 6 hours increments. This allows the body to maintain a steady level of vitamin C order in to have an optimum effect on: (1) Stimulation of the immune system helping to better resist disease including bacteria, virus and even atherosclerotic plaque and cancer. (2) Wound healing times for fractured bones and skin lacerations have been cut in half as compared to the time required without vitamin C. (3) Reducing cholesterol levels in some people by 35-40% and (5) Protecting against the effect of many pollutants such as drinking and smoking. I recommend this book, I rarely get sick anymore, I did not need a flu shot, and my health, vitality and the appearance of my skin seemed to have improved consideralblly.
