Welcome to Life Extension's Press Center
For more than 34 years, Life Extension® has been a pioneer in funding and reporting the latest anti-aging research and integrative health therapies while offering superior-quality dietary supplements to consumers. A trailblazer in the $32 billion U.S. dietary supplements industry, Life Extension is composed of the non-profit Life Extension Foundation®, the Life Extension Foundation Buyers Club, and Life Extension Pharmacy®.
Life Extension has a long history of offering prescient health guidance to American consumers, in many cases years ahead of the mainstream medical establishment. For example, in 1983, Life Extension recognized the value of daily low-dose aspirin to reduce vascular disease risk, years before the practice enjoyed widespread acceptance. It was the first company to offer melatonin, a popular sleep aid, in 1992, and SAMe, a compound that may alleviate depression, arthritis, and certain liver disorders, in 1997.
The Life Extension Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding new scientific methods to enhance and expand the healthy human life span. It funds research programs aimed at developing new anti-aging therapies and combating such age-related killers as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. The Life Extension Foundation has donated nearly $100 million to anti-aging and disease prevention studies.
The Life Extension Foundation Buyers Club is a separate corporation that promotes, sells, and distributes the most scientifically advanced health supplements on the market. It offers a full range of premium-quality vitamins, minerals, and hormones as well as unique, specially made formulas. Life Extension products are developed based on the latest scientific studies from peer-reviewed medical journals and are continually updated as new information occurs. A portion of every purchase from the Life Extension Foundation Buyers Club goes to fund anti-aging research.
Life Extension Magazine® is a monthly publication of the Life Extension Foundation Buyers Club. With a readership of over 350,000, it provides coverage of new discoveries involving anti-aging supplements. In addition, the Life Extension Foundation Buyers Club supports such innovative services as a toll-free Health Advisor hotline and a unique mail-order blood lab. To round out its offering of health services, Life Extension Pharmacy, Inc., established in 2006, offers its customers access to quality pharmaceuticals at competitive prices, particularly on generic drugs that are priced often below insurance co-pays.
Finally, convenience plays a very important part. Life Extension wants to make sure that consumers obtain the maximum potency available in the fewest numbers of capsules or tablets swallowed each day.
Life Extension provides this Daily Dozen list as a guide for normal aging people to follow. Some of you, however, may have individual product questions that require customized attention.
