Recommendation 11: Fill in the Gaps
Super Booster Softgels

Super Booster functions as the perfect complement to Life Extension Mix or Two-Per-Day because it includes health-promoting nutrients that are difficult to fit into those dry-based formulas … starting with vitamin K.

There are three forms of vitamin K that the human body utilizes to maintain healthy arterial structure and elasticity 1 while helping to direct calcium to bones.

  • Vitamin K1: Found in green vegetables, it is tightly bound to plant fiber so only a fraction is absorbed into the bloodstream. Supplementation ensures ample K1 blood levels.
  • Two forms of Vitamin K2: Usually found in foods you may be avoiding (meats, dairy, egg yolks) … so a K2 supplement is essential. It should include both MK-4, the most rapidly absorbed form of K2 … and MK-7, the form of vitamin K that boasts a very long half-life in the body.

Super Booster provides you with higher doses of the longer-lasting MK-7 plus vitamin K1 and MK-4. It also contains nutrients with health benefits so well-documented, people often want to take higher amounts than what they normally get in their daily multivitamin. Here are a few of them:

  • Gamma-tocopherol: Scientists have shown that people supplementing with the alpha-tocopherol form of vitamin E should also consume gamma-tocopherol. Alpha-tocopherol displaces gamma-tocopherol in the body, which may result in a lack of protection against certain types of free radicals. 2,3 One problem with gamma-tocopherol is that it has a high turnover rate in the tissue, making it disappear relatively quickly.4
  • Sesame lignan extract: This has been shown to increase levels of gamma-tocopherol throughout the body.5 In human and animal studies, administration of sesame lignans increases tissue and serum levels of all vitamin E analogs, including gamma- and alpha-tocopherol.5,6 This is critical because gamma-tocopherol quenches reactive nitrogen species, such as the peroxynitrite radical,7 which plays a major role in the development of cardiovascular problems.8-10
  • Ginkgo extract: Promotes healthy circulatory and neurological function.11
  • Chlorophyllin: Provides protection against DNA gene mutation.12
  • Lycopene: This red carotenoid inhibits LDL oxidation and also protects DNA gene integrity.13-18

Most of the ingredients in Super Booster Softgels are fat-soluble and should be taken with the heaviest meal of the day. Because that meal often contains the most dietary mutagens, it is appropriate to consume the chlorophyllin contained in Super Booster at that time. A Booster formula without vitamin K and chlorophyllin is also available.

The cost of purchasing these ingredients individually greatly exceeds the price of Super Booster Softgels. For instance, the retail prices of the gamma E tocopherol, lycopene-lutein extracts, vitamin K, ginkgo extract, and chlorophyllin add up to over $100. By using Super Booster (Item #01680), members can save over 70% of the cost of buying these ingredients separately. The retail price for a bottle of 60 softgels is $42.00. If a Life Extension member buys four bottles, the price is reduced to only $28.50 per bottle.Click here to view ingredients.
