  • For Longer Life
  • Maintains Healthy Arteries
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Lowers homocysteine

Life Extension has long warned about the dangers of high homocysteine and has advised taking vitamin B6, folic acid, and vitamin B12 to help maintain healthy arteries.

Many doctors and blood laboratories consider homocysteine levels of 5–15 micromoles per liter (µmol/L) of blood to be “normal.” However, recent reports indicate that maintaining a homocysteine level lower than the 12 µmol/L can help maintain cardiac health. Because there is no “safe” level of homocysteine, Life Extension recommends keeping levels even lower, preferably below 8 µmol/L.

Studies have shown that folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 promote healthy homocysteine levels and support endothelial function. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in elderly people, folic acid combined with vitamin B12 supplementation significantly reduced plasma homocysteine concentration by 36%.

​For those seeking to lower their homocysteine, Homocysteine Resist provides a potent dose of 250 mg of vitamin B6 along with 400 micrograms of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (the biologically active form of folic acid) and 500 micrograms of vitamin B12.**

Grape Seed Extract and Red Wine

Alcohol consumption did not begin with humans, but is found as far down the evolutionary scale as fish, which become inebriated after eating overripe fruit falling into the water. Grape seed proanthocyanidins have been reported to possess a broad spectrum of pharmacological and medicinal properties against oxidative stress. Grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSE) provides excellent protection against free radicals in both in vitro and in vivo models.64 Grape Seed Extract significantly prevented and postponed development of cataract formation in rats with hereditary cataracts65 and radiation-induced cataract.66 Improvement in myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury in vitro has been reported.67-69 Activin, a new generation antioxidant derived from grape seed proanthocyanidins, reduced plasma levels of oxidative stress and adhesion molecules (ICAM-1, VCAM-1 and E-selectin) in patients with systemic sclerosis.

What is the Life Extension Foundation?

The Life Extension Foundation is one of the largest organizations dedicated to investigating every method of extending the healthy human life span. When seeking anti-aging therapies, health and nutrition, The Foundation has reported discoveries in the areas of atherosclerosis and stroke prevention, diabetes, prostate health, hormone replacement therapy, and other health concerns. The Life Extension Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization whose goal is to conquer the aging process within the next decade.

How old is the Life Extension Foundation?

The Life Extension Foundation was officially incorporated in 1980, but its founder has been involved in anti-aging research since the 1960s.

What scientific breakthroughs has the Life Extension Foundation made?

Research supported by The Life Extension Foundation has documented the value of antioxidants in extending life span and in protecting cells against ischemia (lack of blood flow). Ischemia is the leading cause of disability and death. Ischemia can be caused by the blockage of a coronary artery, which can lead to a heart attack, or a cerebral artery, which can lead to a stroke. Accident victims often die from ischemia. The Foundation supports a full time research facility that has broken all world records in protecting against ischemia-induced free radical damage.

What is the Foundation's track record in recommending Life Extension Therapies?

The Life Extension Foundation was the first organization to defy the FDA by promoting the use of antioxidant vitamins to maintain health. The Foundation was the first organization to promote the use of low dose aspirin to maintain cardiovascular health. The Foundation was the first organization to recommend against the use of iron in dietary supplements because of evidence that iron causes massive free radical damage contributing to the development of cancer, atherosclerosis and a host of other diseases. The Foundation was the first organization to inform Americans about the "miracle nutrient" coenzyme Q10, about the anti-cancer carotenoids lycopene, lutein, and xanthophyl, and about the most effective anti-aging therapy in the world, Melatonin. And the Foundation was the first organization to introduce Americans to European "smart drugs" like piracetam, centrophenoxine, and DHEA.
