You may have heard about the organization Life Extension and you’re wondering what it’s all about.

In Life Extension: A Review, I explain what makes it unique, as well as relate my experience of being a member of Life Extension since 1999.

Keep reading to find out if Life Extension is right for you.


A Track Record of Innovation and Discovery


Located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, their slogan is “The Science of a Healthier life.”


They’ve been at the forefront of scientific innovation for more than 40 years.  In 1981 Life Extension introduced the popular anti-aging hormone DHEA.


They were also the first to recommend low-dose aspirin in 1983, as well as introducing CoEnzyme Q10 and lycopene in the 1980s.


Life Extension advanced treatment protocols before they were recognized by conventional medicine, and are now standard medical practice.


Adding to Life Extension’s credentials are their scientific advisory board and medical advisory board, comprised of some of the world’s top scientists and physicians.


In addition to having a long track record of discovery, they sell nutritional and herbal supplements that meet the highest standards and adhere to the guidelines of NSF International for identity, strength, composition, quality and purity.


Not only are the products based on the latest scientific research, Life Extension tests the products with its own clinical trials.


Life Extension products also include the following:

  • IFOS 5-Star Rated Fish Oil
  • Non-GMO Certification
  • Gluten-Free Formulations has ranked Life Extension’s products #1 for several years


All their products come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, or your money back.  Customer service is available by phone 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.


I’m so impressed with Life Extension’s products that I buy almost all of my nutritional supplements from them.


Since there are some products I consume on a regular basis, I use Life Extension’s Autoship & Save Program which is FREE.  I save an average of 16% this way, as opposed to buying the products otherwise.


If you’re in the Ft. Lauderdale area, stop by the Health and Wellness Market.  It’s Life Extension’s retail location for health food, supplements, educational lectures and lab testing.



How is Your Body Functioning Beneath the Surface? 


Annual blood testing for longevity is one important strategy for combating the diseases of aging.


Unfortunately, the annual blood tests that most physicians order are insufficient and outdated for identifying the relevant disease risk markers that you need for healthy aging and longevity.


This is why Life Extension offers a wide array of blood tests.  You can purchase the blood tests online or over the phone. You’ll be mailed a doctor’s order to have your blood drawn at LabCorp.

After you receive your results, a health professional at Life Extension will spend 30 minutes discussing your results.

Looking for a physician?  Life Extension’s directory of Innovative Doctors and Health Practitioners can help you find an anti-aging physician in the United States or internationally.
