Despite incredible scientific validation, many people still do not take vital life-sustaining nutrients because they don’t want to swallow so many pills. This problem has been solved with a one-per-day softgel that includes more health-promoting nutrients than any other supplement. The Life Extension Super Booster contains optimal amounts of critical oil-based nutrients and is designed to complement the Life Extension Mix™.
The Super Booster provides high doses of the most effective form of vitamin K known as menaquinone-7. Just one Super Booster softgel provides:
- Gamma Tocopherol – If one consumes only alpha tocopherol, the critically important gamma tocopherol is displaced from cells within the body.115 While alpha tocopherol vitamin E suppresses lipid peroxidation, the gamma tocopherol form quenches the peroxynitrite free radical. It is especially important for those who take vitamin E supplements to make sure they consume at least 200 mg of gamma tocopherol daily.
- Sesame Lignans – Sesame lignans augment the antioxidant effects of both alpha and gamma tocopherol. In a human study, gamma tocopherol plus sesame lignans were 25% more effective in suppressing measurements of free-radical damage than gamma tocopherol and tocotrienols.116-118
- Vitamin K – Vitamin K1 from dietary plant sources is poorly absorbed and only a small fraction gets into the bloodstream. Vitamin K2 is absorbed much more efficiently. Scientific studies show K2 provides superior benefits for the bones, arteries, and other tissues. The MK-4 form of vitamin K2 is the most rapidly absorbed and is now routinely used in Japan to maintain healthy bone density. MK-4, however, only remains active in the blood for a few hours. The MK-7 form of K2, on the other hand, remains bioavailable to the human body over a sustained 24-hour period. Super Booster now provides a potent dose of MK-7 to keep calcium in the bone and out of the arteries, along with MK-4 and vitamin K1.
- Lycopene – Evidence suggests that people who ingest the carotenoid lycopene enjoy healthier prostate function.119,120 Lycopene also helps guard against LDL oxidation.84,121
- Lutein – The carotenoid lutein helps maintain healthy cell division, supports the macula of the eye, and protects the endothelial lining of the arteries.122-127
- Ginkgo – Hundreds of studies indicate the multifaceted effects of Ginkgo biloba in promoting healthy circulatory and neurological function.128,129
- Chlorophyllin – Scientific studies indicate that chlorophyllin may be the most potent nutrient to protect against environmentally induced damage to DNA.130-132
The Super Booster saves consumers huge dollars by combining a wide variety of costly nutrients into one daily softgel. If you add up the price of the individual ingredients contained in the Super Booster, you would spend two-to-three times more for this potency if taken separately.
