Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Extract
The health benefits of eating cold-water fish are robust, yet concerns remain about contaminants found in wild and farm-raised fish. This should not stop consumers from including fish in their diet, as the longevity advantages of consuming cold-water fish instead of foods like beef are substantial. A recent study found that even vegetarians that include some fish in their diet fare better than strict vegetarians.1
Eliminate Virtually All Fish-Derived Toxins
Consumers can exert significant control over their exposure to fish-borne toxins. High-quality fish oil is distilled to remove synthetic and natural contaminants that existed in the fish itself. Enhanced molecular distillation techniques utilize redundant processes to virtually eliminate detectable environmental toxins.
The other safety concern about fish oil is that its delicate omega-3 fats are highly vulnerable to rancidity. No one wants to ingest oxidized (rancid) oils.
A new fish oil blend derived from pristine waters off the coast of Alaska utilizes a multistep process to remain exceptionally fresh. The result is that this Alaskan-derived fish oil has a greater than five-fold reduction in the upper level threshold measurement for oxidation.
Current oxidation standards for quality fish oils ensure products free from rancidity. The new Alaskan-derived fish oil specification advances this premium standard five-fold better.
The chart below reveals the reduction in upper limit for oxidation of this new Alaskan fish oil blend over existing quality fish oils:
|TOTOX (total oxidation value)
(Lower means less oxidation)
|Maximum: 5||Maximum: 26|
(Measure of current oxidation)
|Maximum: 1.0 meq/kg||Maximum: 5.0 meq/kg|
(Measure of past oxidation and
measure of aldehyde production
during handling and storage)
|Maximum: 5||Maximum: 20|
Higher Percentages of EPA and DHA
An advantage to higher EPA and DHA fish oil concentrations is smaller sized omega-3 capsules. The addition of this new Alaskan-derived fish oil to the Super Omega-3 supplement group enables the same high-potency EPA/DHA to fit into slightly smaller capsules for easier swallowing.
International Fish Oil Association Five-Star Rating
The International Fish Oil Association (IFOS) is an independent organization that tests fish oils to determine their overall safety and quality. A Five-Star Rating indicates fish oils have been tested to meet strict standards of quality as determined by EPA and DHA content, and for purity to rule out contamination with heavy metals, radiation, oxidation, and organic pollutants such as PCBs and dioxin.
Alaskan-derived fish oil enjoys the same Five-Star Rating mandated for all fish oils contained in the Super Omega-3 family of supplements.
The Marine Stewardship Council is an independent nonprofit organization that sets a standard for sustainable fishing so that that fishing can continue indefinitely with minimal environmental impact. The new Alaskan-derived fish oil is the first refined omega-3 concentrate available worldwide that is sourced from a sustainability fishery certified by the Marine Stewardship Council.
Most Advanced Omega-3 Dietary Supplement
From supporting heart health and brain function to balancing the inflammatory response, there is no debating the broad-spectrum benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.2-4
There are hundreds of fish oil supplements on the market. Only one incorporates lifesaving findings to provide omega-3 and olive fruit extracts, along with sesame lignans, in a family of formulas called Super Omega-3.
Fish Oil + Olive Fruit Extract = Greater Efficacy
Research findings indicate that a combination of fish oil and olive oil can support a healthy inflammatory response better than fish oil alone.5 Super Omega-3 incorporates the benefits of both fish oil and olive fruit extract into a single formula. Four softgels supply the equivalent polyphenol content of 8 to 12 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
Sesame Lignans Enhance Fish Oil Efficacy
Studies show that when sesame lignans are added to fish oil, there is a greater safeguard against oxidation along with the EPA/DHA fatty acids being directed toward pathways that help with inflammatory reactions.6
Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Supercharge your cellular energy
Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ is formulated with ubiquinol, a highly bioavailable form of coenzyme Q10 nutrient, and augmented with the adaptogen PrimaVie ® shilajit, clinically shown to further increase CoQ10 absorption, promote cardiovascular health, and help restore youthful cellular energy.
Benefits at a Glance
- Ubiquinol CoQ10 absorbs up to 8 times better than ubiquinone CoQ10
- Promotes cellular energy production in heart, brain and muscle tissue
- Provides superior cardiovascular and antioxidant support
- PrimaVie® shilajit enhances mitochondrial CoQ10 absorption
CoQ10 for heart health and cellular energy
CoQ10 (or coenzyme Q10) is an essential nutrient your body requires for healthy mitochondrial function, a process that produces body energy at the cellular level.1 Because of this, it makes sense that CoQ10 is concentrated in high-energy organs such as your brain,2 liver, kidneys, and (most importantly) your heart.3,4
CoQ10 also has powerful antioxidant properties, protecting important proteins5 and mitochondrial DNA6 from oxidative damage.1 Unfortunately, CoQ10 levels in your body deplete over time.
Natural and unnatural causes of CoQ10 depletion
As we age, CoQ10 levels in our body naturally decrease. What’s more, popular statin drugs which are used to lower cholesterol, can also deplete CoQ10 levels in the blood and potentially in tissue.7,8
And while statins have been shown to reduce plasma CoQ10 by nearly 40%,9 the normal aging process may be even worse: reducing CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall by as much as 72%.10
Improved bioavailability: ubiquinol and shilajit
The traditional form of CoQ10, ubiquinone, is difficult for the body to absorb. But another form, ubiquinol, has been shown to absorb up to 8 times greater than ubiquinone. That’s why Life Extension offers a highly bioavailable form of ubiquinol CoQ10 in a patented delivery system with superior absorption levels.11
Shilajit enhances CoQ10 effectiveness
PrimaVie ® shilajit is an adaptogen shown to promote mitochondrial metabolism, helping mitochondria convert fats and sugars into ATP — the main source of cellular energy.12-17 When combined with ubiquinol CoQ10, it has been clinically shown to double levels of CoQ10 in the mitochondria.18 Shilajit prolongs CoQ10’s efficacy at the cellular level by stabilizing it in its ubiquinol form19,20 and facilitates greater cellular energy output by improving delivery of CoQ10 into the mitochondria.12-17
In middle-aged mice, ubiquinol was up to 40% more effective at slowing measurements of aging compared to ubiquinone.21 In another preliminary study in mice, the combination of CoQ10 and shilajit produced a 56% increase in cellular energy production in the brain — 40% better than CoQ10 alone. Muscle tissue saw a 144% increase, which was 27% better than with CoQ10 by itself.22
Breakthrough longevity and cellular energy formula
Research supports the value of this unique combination of ubiquinol CoQ10 and shilajit. That’s why we’ve created Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ ,to create a powerful synergy that supports heart health and youthful cellular energy production better than CoQ10 alone.

If you suffer from age-related stiffness and joint discomfort, even the simplest everyday activities can become a real ordeal. Once your mobility is limited, it compromises virtually everything you do. But you now have a potent option to provide broad-spectrum support for aging joints …ArthroMax® Advanced with UC-II® & AprèsFlex®, a next generation, multi-nutrient formula based on the latest research. It includes two innovative, clinically validated nutrients … AprèsFlex® and UC-II® … to offer you superior joint support.
AprèsFlex® represents a quantum leap forward in the delivery of boswellia to aging joints because it is especially effective at inhibiting the 5-LOX enzyme.1,2 Excess activity of 5-LOX results in the accumulation of leukotriene B4, a pro-inflammatory compound that affects aging joints. Boswellia compounds have been shown to bind directly to the 5-LOX enzyme in our bodies, inhibiting it from facilitating production of pro-inflammatory leukotrienes.3,4
AprèsFlex® boswellia absorbs into the blood nearly 52% better than previously available forms of boswellia for superior effectiveness.5,6
In addition to AprèsFlex®, ArthroMax® contains a novel form of standardized cartilage: Bio-Collagen with Patented UC-II® is a novel form of undenatured type II collagen from chicken cartilage shown to provide targeted support for immune health, joint discomfort, an ease of motion. Taken orally, UC-II® travels to the intestinal tract where it “introduces” the immune system to the same type of collagen molecules found in joint cartilage. Scientific studies have found that UC-II® reduced sensitive joint discomfort and eased joint function.7
ArthroMax® also provides glucosamine and boron to support the underlying structural foundation for joint and cartilage tissue.
So don’t live with age-related joint discomfort and stiffness. Try ArthroMax® Advanced with UC-II® and AprèsFlex®.

#4 Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate – 32% OFF
Supports Healthy Memory and Cognitive Function
Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate supports healthy memory and cognition by optimizing magnesium levels in the brain. Magnesium is essential for over 300 different biochemical reactions in the body — from cardiovascular and bone health support to energy metabolism, mood, and most especially cognitive function. Unfortunately, it’s hard to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain. And that’s a problem since magnesium deficiency increases with normal aging. But because of its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system, Neuro-Mag® provides the ideal form of magnesium for enhanced memory and cognitive function.
Benefits at a Glance
- Supports healthy memory and cognitive function
- Optimizes magnesium in the brain
- Maintains the quantity and quality of synaptic connections between brain cells
- Inhibits the dysregulation of important brain cell signaling pathways
Supports Healthy Memory and Cognition
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions1 and 600 enzymatic reactions2 in the body. In addition to support for cardiovascular3-10 and bone health,11-14 energy metabolism,15-17 glucose metabolism,18-22 mood,23-26 sleep,27-29 and vitamind D status,30-32 researchers are now focusing intensely on magnesium’s benefits for cognitive function.33-38
Magnesium L-threonateis a unique form of magnesium that is delivered into the brain where it maintains the quantity of synaptic connections between brain cells33,34 and inhibits the dysregulation of important brain cell signaling pathways. One of the key benefits of increased brain magnesium levels is improved memory.33-38 In compelling animal models, the magnesium L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag® improved short-term memory by 18% and long-term memory by 100%.33
Optimizes Magnesium in the Brain
Worldwide, nearly two thirds of the population lack the recommended amount of magnesium in their diet,39 whereas in the US it is closer to half the population.40 Older populations are also at a higher risk of magnesium deficiency.28,29,41-44 Don’t be one of them! Unfortunately, it’s even harder for your body to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain.33 This problem is of special concern for maturing individuals, as magnesium deficiency increases over time.45
Most commercially available magnesium supplements are not readily absorbed into the nervous system. To overcome this obstacle, supplement with this innovative form of magnesium, shown to specifically target the aging brain and nervous system. In pre-clinical models, the magnesium L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag® boosted magnesium levels in spinal fluid by an impressive 15% compared to no increase with conventional magnesium.33
Support your memory with just three capsules a day
Try Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate in a bottle of 90 vegetarian capsules for a one-month supply. The suggested daily dose of three capsules provides 2,000 mg of magnesium L-threonate. While this supplies a modest 144 mg of elemental magnesium, its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system makes it the preferred form of magnesium for enhanced memory and cognitive function.
#5 AMPK Activator – 31% OFF
AMPK Activator is an enzyme that serves as the body’s master regulating switch. It inhibits multiple damaging factors by revitalizing aging cells.1
Found in every cell,2,3 AMPK promotes longevity factors that have been shown to extend life span in numerous organisms.1,4 Increasing AMPK signaling “turns off” many damaging effects of aging, thus enabling cells to return to their youthful vitality.5
Life Extension® scientists have compiled years of research to create AMPK Activator, a specialized dual-extract formulation that supports AMPK activation for health optimization. This natural formula supports AMPK enzymatic activities required to safely support a more youthful cellular environment.
Importance of AMPK
Greater AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase) activation has been shown to help target damaging factors of aging.5 Studies show increased AMPK activity supports reduced fat storage,6 new mitochondria production,7 and the promotion of healthy blood glucose and lipids already within normal range.4
An extract of the plant Gynostemma pentaphyllum was traditionally used in Asian medicine to promote longevity and scientists now know why—G. pentaphyllum promotes AMPK activation.8-10
Trans-tiliroside, extracted from plants such as rose hips, also boosts AMPK activation, but triggers different downstream metabolic benefits than G. pentaphyllum.12-14 Among its many benefits, a low equivalent dose of 56 mg daily trans-tiliroside has been shown by researchers in preclinical studies to promote healthy blood glucose levels and body weight already within normal range.15
Anti-Aging Discovery that Cannot be Overlooked
Scientists uncovered the cell-energizing effect of AMPK in the 1970s. Since then, an exponential volume of data (over 7,500 published studies) documents the critical role that activated AMPK plays in maintaining life-sustaining cellular functions.
Those seeking to meaningfully extend their healthy life span should ensure they optimally activate their cellular AMPK. The reason this is so important is that in response to aging, excess calorie consumption, and/or low levels of physical activity, AMPK activity markedly declines.
A targeted way of reversing cellular depletion of this critical enzyme is to take the new AMPK Activator formula that comprises a dual-extract, plant-based formulation.
This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Individual results are not guaranteed and results may vary.
#6 Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat® – 31% OFF
Nourish supple, healthy skin from within
Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat® offers the skin-nourishing benefits of wheat-derived ceramide oils in a convenient oral supplement designed to support dermal elasticity, proper hydration, and lasting comfort!
Benefits at a Glance
- Concentrated oral formula for youthful-looking skin
- Promotes healthy skin hydration and comfort
- Encourages healthy ceramide levels in aging skin
- Addresses the challenge of poor ceramide absorption
Skin Deep: the benefits of ceramide oils
Ceramides comprise 35%–40% of the binding matrix that maintains moisture balance and protects the surface of your skin.1,2 These skin-nourishing oils are an important lipid component of the skin’s membrane, where they provide protection from the elements and lock in moisture.2-5 But one of the challenges of maintaining supple, healthy skin is that ceramide levels naturally decrease as we age!6,7
Using wheat oils as a natural moisturizer
The ceramides that give younger skin its supple appearance are identical to those found in wheat. That’s why wheat-derived oils have been used topically as natural moisturizers for centuries.
The ceramides that give younger skin its supple appearance are identical to those found in wheat. That’s why wheat-derived oils have been used topically as natural moisturizers for centuries. However, you can’t get enough ceramides from topically applied wheat germ oil to have a long-term impact on your skin’s appearance.
What’s worse, you probably won’t be able to obtain enough wheat ceramides from your diet to make a difference, either. The good news is we’ve combined these skin nourishing oils in a proprietary, highly concentrated ceramide Lipowheat® blend.
Clinically researched Lipowheat® formula
What makes Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat® such an excellent complement to topical products you may already use? Japanese women have had access to ceramides as a functional food since 2000.8 Ceramides were shown to be so effective that they’re now approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA.
Study verifies improvements in hydration and comfort
In one study, 95% of participants taking 200 mg of Lipowheat® a day reported dramatic improvement in the look and feel of their skin and exhibited improved skin hydration, with results verified by electrochemical analysis. Better yet, the study participants who experienced itching at the onset of the study reported sharp decreases or completely eliminated itching by the study’s end.8
Enjoy ageless, healthy-looking skin and replace the ceramides you lose as you age with Skin Restoring Phytoceramides with Lipowheat® – only from Life Extension®!
