I've been taking this for years. I think it is the best all round supplement on the market. It doesn't have everything imaginable. But it is a good place to start.
To those who don't know if it "works" or notice a change, I think you mistake the nature of this product. It isn't a drug or cure. Vitamin and mineral supplements are intended to assure that all nutritional needs are met so that you can enjoy the best state of health you are capable of. In some instances there can be noticeable benefits. This supplement mix has a wide range of antioxidants and anti inflamatories. So if you suffer a condition involving those problems you might notice a benefit. I personally notice a lower level of inflammation related pain upon awaking when taking this product. But then I am 75. At my age wide spread inflammation is expected. At age 20 that benefit might not be noticed, unless you are so foolish as to get really drunk. Then taking these at bedtime would likely head off a hangover. I know in my younger more foolish days I used them for exactly that purpose with great success. I also attribute to them the fact that I have essentially no lines or wrinkles, which I think are caused by inflammation. (I have had stances long ago where I got drunk and awoke in the night with pain in my skin and could actually see a line forming. In those instances I applied dissolved aspirin, which is an antinflammatory and the pain stopped, the inflammation was quelled and line disappeared.)
So it is my opinion that this mix is an excellent way to tamp down inflammation and oxidation thus preventing damage. To get those benefits it is best to take the mix consistently for life. I started taking it as best I can remember in about 1985. And although there have been times I could not afford it, I have been generally a consistent user.
In my opinion your body is in a constant battle between forces of damage and forces of repair. A dynamic equilibrium is maintained between those forces resulting from the rate of those forces. I don't know a way to increase repair unless possibly calorie restriction or niagen. But I do think that this product will slow down the rate of damage and shift the equal barium in your favor.
I've been taking these sup's for years. They are made up of both whole foods & vitamins. They keep me healthy - haven't seen a doctor in years! The only negative is having to take 9 pills (rather large) per day. Would highly recommend!
The Life Extension Mix comes in tablet or capsule form. When you open the pack you can smell the freshness of the tablets. When I started using LEF mix I was dealing with fatigue, allergies and depression. I started monitoring my reactions to different foods, and cut back on coffee, pizza and alcohol and bread, for example.
Happy to say that all these problems have cleared up. The depression I resolved through different means, and I no longer use antidepressants.
The quality of ingredients goes beyond FDA standards, because it compares the contents with FDA allowances.
The effects of this product are subtle, and yet I feel they are cumulative. The more one takes over time the greater the effect. The other products I use pack more of a punch particularly Miraforte which boosts libido, and Primal Defense. Rejuvenex the facial cream has a very powerful effect, and in fact makes hair grow darker. People comment that my skin is less lined than my younger siblings. My younger siblings make these comments. They do not have access to these products as they are overseas.
The Mix also contains numerous other ingredients such as Bilberry, Lycopene, Wild Blueberry, Green Tea Extract, Milk Thistle Extract to name just a few. I find that I don't need to take the same amount as I would of another product to get similar results.
I stumbled across these vitamins by accident. I was hoping they would at least give me a small energy boost in the morning. So imagine my surprise when these things cured my severe fatigue and depression within 2 days. It was like flipping a switch.
One of the few products I would recommend without hesitation.
I have been using these for two months. The only difference I feel with my health is bowel movements twice a day instead of once a day. This is probably from the Vitamin C. I'm only 120lb and take 5-6 pills a day, not the nine pills recommended.
This supplement has everything but the kitchen sink, Read the label and see for yourself. They are pricey~shop around. We don't take the 9 per day as recommended because of this, but cutting back to six, you'll still be getting a healthy dose of everything, IMO I've been taking these for over 15 years and believe they're responsible for me being in good health at 67.
