Recommendation 6: Restore youthful hormone balance
DHEA • Super MiraForte with Standardized Lignans • Advanced Natural Sex for Women® 50+ • Pregnenolone

Aging men and women are often DHEA deficient.1-5 Men over age 40 often have too little free testosterone and less than optimal estrogen levels.6-10 Aging women need to balance their progesterone and estrogen levels.

Life Extension offers low-cost blood test panels designed to help provide the biological information needed to safely achieve youthful hormone balance. To order a comprehensive Male or Female Blood Test Panel, call 1-800-208-3444.

Once you receive your blood test results, you can take them to your doctor … or talk to a Life Extension Health Advisor by calling 1-800-226-2370 about these different options:

  • DHEA is the body’s most abundant circulating hormone. Unfortunately, DHEA production peaks by age 25 … and by age 70 most people’s DHEA levels have declined over 80%. That leads to hormonal imbalances that can affect quality of life.11 Thousands of studies show how DHEA may help retard the effects of aging and promote longevity. To achieve the DHEA levels of a 25-year-old, men normally supplement with 25-50 mg a day … and women usually take only 15-25mg a day. Life Extension’s DHEA supplements use a micronized DHEA for maximum absorption and utilization. For information about the different forms and potencies of DHEA, refer to the Hormones section of this Directory.
  • Caution: Do not use DHEA if you are at risk for or have been diagnosed with any type of hormonal cancer, such as prostate or breast cancer.

  • Pregnenolone, the “mother” hormone of all steroids, increases brain levels of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter required for optimal brain function, creating new memories and recalling old information.12 Pregnenolone belongs in our Top 12 because it is an important part of any healthy brain and longevity supplement regimen. A bottle of Life Extension’s Pregnenolone (Item #00302) contains 100 50 mg capsules and retails for $26.00. If a member buys four bottles, the price is reduced to $16.50.
  • Caution: Pregnenolone may affect levels of other hormones, such as progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and/or DHEA. Do not take this product if you have a history of seizures. Do not take this product if you have breast cancer, prostate cancer, or other hormone-sensitive diseases.

  • Super MiraForte with Standardized Lignans for men offers testosterone-supporting ingredients that naturally help re-establish more youthful testosterone levels. This innovative formulation includes chrysin, which blocks the aromatase enzyme that triggers conversion of testosterone to estrogen … and stinging nettle, which binds to a blood component called the sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) to help increase the level of free testosterone.13 Super Miraforte also contains Bioperine®, Muira puama, chelated elemental zinc, Maca and a standardized lignan extract that converts to enterolactone in the intestine for rapid absorption into the bloodstream … because enterolactone has demonstrated anti-estrogen and anti-DHT effects that are particularly important for the aging prostate gland.14,15 Super MiraForte with Standardized Lignans is designed to help re-establish more youthful testosterone levels. A bottle containing 120 capsules retails for $62.00. If a Life Extension member buys four bottles, the price is reduced to $42.00 per bottle. The suggested dose is two capsules, twice per day. For more information, refer to the Hormones section of this Directory. (Item #01698)
  • Caution: If you are taking any medication, use only under physician supervision. Men with existing prostate cancer may not be able to use this product. Elevations in free testosterone can unmask an occult (hidden) prostate cancer. Anyone with this concern should have a baseline PSA prior to using this product and a follow-up PSA test 60 days later. If a significant elevation of PSA is found, discontinue this product and advise physician. Do not take more than 15 mg per day of Bioperine®.

  • Advanced Natural Sex for Women® 50+ is a phyto-blend that targets and supports the mechanisms that promote healthy sexual function and libido … while minimizing menopausal symptoms. It includes Cordyceps, a mushroom extract shown to improve sexual function and desire in 86% of women in just 40 days16 … and Maca, a plant root extract that women who took it scored almost 35% better than placebo subjects on a standard sexual function and libido scale after just 6 weeks! 17 It also contains three herbal root extracts to balance estrogenic activity that have been shown to inhibit menopausal symptoms by 62% in just 12 weeks!18 For menopausal relief and enhanced sexual health, a daily dose of three capsules of Advanced Natural Sex for Women ® 50+ is suggested. A bottle of 90 vegetarian capsules retails for $59.00. If a member purchases four bottles, the price is reduced to only $34.00 per bottle.
