Once-Daily Health Booster (Formerly Super Booster)
Once-Daily Health 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.
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
- 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
Once-Daily Health 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
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

Most of the ingredients in Once-Daily Health BoosterSoftgels 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 Once-Daily Health Boosterat that time.
The cost of purchasing these ingredients individually greatly exceeds the price of Once-Daily Health BoosterSoftgels. For instance, the
retail prices of the gamma E tocopherol, lycopene-lutein extracts, vitamin K, and chlorophyllin add up to over $100. By using Once-Daily Health Booster (Item #01981), 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.
