Innovative Products Based on Innovative Research
The Life Extension Foundation® has been funding and reporting global research on anti-aging and optimal health since its inception in 1980. Its mission is and always has been to help people live healthier longer.

Out of that research, The Life Extension Foundation Buyers Club evolved to scour the globe for pure, potent, cutting-edge ingredients for formulations that replicate original clinical trials. Life Extension now creates the most advanced line of health-promoting vitamins, minerals, hormones, weight loss and nutritional supplements available. CoQ10 is just one shining example.

Life Extension was the first to introduce CoQ10 to the U.S. back in 1983. Since then, the company has consistently introduced it in more potent, more absorbable forms. Thanks to Life Extension’s pioneering efforts, this and many other groundbreaking supplements are now known to and used by millions of Americans for optimal health and wellness.

To help retailers boost their bottom lines, Life Extension now offers more than 300 effective formulations, all created from the finest raw materials available, all manufactured to the highest quality standards, and all tested and guaranteed for purity and potency. There’s a Life Extension supplement for nearly every need, with new products like this being added and enhanced all the time.

A Brand New Formula for a Better Bottom Line
Life Extension has the perfect new formula to increase profits: Mitochondrial Basics with BioPQQ™. This highly affordable new formulation brings together three cutting-edge mitochondrial energizers, including the most exciting nutrient to emerge in recent years: PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone). This breakthrough micronutrient has been shown to trigger mitochondrial biogenesis—the growth of new mitochondria in aging cells.1 In addition, PQQ also activates genes involved in protecting the delicate structures within the mitochondria.2-5

This cellular energy formula also includes:

R-lipoic acid: The detrimental effects of free radicals are one of the chief obstacles to optimal mitochondrial energy production. Published studies confirm R-lipoic acid’s power to promote mitochondrial bioenergetics while simultan-eously blunting free radical activity.6-11 This formula contains the superior Bio-Enhanced® R-lipoic acid in a proprietary microencapsulated form for better absorption.

Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate: Fats are shuttled into the mitochondria for metabolic combustion by the amino acid carnitine. The acetylated form of carnitine helps facilitate more efficient utilization of fats than carnitine alone.

This innovative new formula should create a high demand for mitochondrial support for cell health among value-conscious consumers. And it’s just one of many innovative new formulas for success available through Life Extension.

Effective Marketing Support to Help Build Sales
In addition to leading the nutraceutical industry in quality and innovation, Life Extension provides outstanding retailer support. Retailers receive a special bi-monthly retail edition of Life Extension’s magazine that showcases the hottest products and the latest advances in the world of supplements. They get informative product sheets that supply background knowledge needed to successfully educate consumers and effectively sell these products. The company also offers toll-free access to an integrative staff of health advisors (naturopaths, nurses, nutritionists, personal trainers) every day of the year for the answers needed on products.

Ordering is easy, too, online or toll-free with the Life Extensions’s dedicated line for retailers. And if that’s not enough, they can generate even more sales with Life Extension’s unique, cost-effective, mail-order blood testing resale program—designed to help customers head off serious health problems.
