GAMMA E TOCOPHEROL with sesame lignans

sku: 2075 | Vitamins | 60 soft capsules
GAMMA E TOCOPHEROL with sesame lignans

The main objective of taking supplements that contain vitamin E is the neutralization of destructive free radicals. Vitamin E occurs in four types of which the most important are the alpha-tocopherol and gamma- tocopherol.

More and more studies have shown that alpha- tocopherol is dangerous to be taken alone and has to be taken parallel with gamma-tocopherol. According to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, alpha-tocopherol possesses the ability to displace the valuable gamma-tocopherol found in the cells. Although alpha-tocopherol inhibits lipid peroxidation, gamma- tocopherol is necessary to neutralize dangerous free radicals such as the peroxynitrite radical.

Life Extension through research has in addition discovered that adding sesame lignans to gamma-tocopherol enhances its antioxidant action significantly. Consequently it has enriched this food supplement with sesame lignans so as to maximize the antioxidants benefits of gamma- tocopherol.

NO FLUSH NIACIN (inositol hexanicotinate)

sku: 373 | Vitamins | 100 capsules
NO FLUSH NIACIN (inositol hexanicotinate)

Niacin is the only vitamin of the B complex that can be synthesized in the liver from the amino acid tryptophan - approximately 1 mg of niacin can be composed from 60 mg of tryptophan.

Niacin, in the form of its coenzyme is crucial for energy transfer reactionsand in particular for the metabolism of glucose, fat, and alcohol.

Life Extension’s No-Flush Niacin contains a special form of niacin, inositol hexanicotinate that consists of six molecules of niacin chemically bound by one molecule of inositol in the body. This allows it to be hydrolyzed into free inositol and niacin which is in itself a very slow process. The actual effect of niacin is therefore allowed to surface, without the typical niacin flush which does not suit many people.

 

Attention: In some cases you may receive occasional flushing, digestive disorders, itching. If these symptoms persist, discontinue use.

BENFOTIAMINE with Thiamine 100mg

sku: 920 | Vitamins | 120 capsules
BENFOTIAMINE with Thiamine 100mg

Benfotiamine is the fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 (thiamine).Transketolase is an enzyme critical to blood sugar metabolism but for it to be able to work properly it requires the assistance of a cofactor Thiamine BI.  Thiamine B1 is though water soluble and hence less available inside of cells. Benfotiamine, on the other hand, being fat-soluble and more bioavailable can more readily penetrate cells and assist the transketolase. 

In landmark studies, Benfotiamine effectively assisted and increased transketolase activity in cell cultures by 300% compared to a 20% of thiamine. This activation is needed to stop three out of the four metabolic pathways that leads to damage and destruction of blood vessels.

Benfotiamine also blocks the transcription factor known as nuclear factor Kappa b (NF-kB), which is implicated in a number of numerous inflammatory conditions.

COMPLETE B-COMPLEX

sku: 1835 | Vitamins | 60 capsules
COMPLETE B-COMPLEX

Vitamins of B complex are used by the body alone or in combination with enzymes to help the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The coenzyme of vitamin B is vital for the metabolic pathways that produce the energy needed by every cell in the body. Further they strengthen the nervous system in addition to possessing great anti-aging properties.  Vitamins of B-complex are though interdependent, meaning a deficiency in even one of these in the various stages of the metabolism process can affect the proper functioning of our body.

B-complex vitamins are water soluble.  Since these vitamins don’t have the ability to be stored in the body and any excess is excreted through urine the body needs a daily replenishment. 

Life Extension’s complete vitamin B complex contains potent, safe and scientifically approved amounts of vitamin B in forms with greater bioavailability.

SUPER K with Advanced K2 Complex

sku: 1224 | Vitamins | 90 soft capsules
SUPER K with Advanced K2 Complex

Numerous clinical trials confirm that vitamin K plays a vital role in maintaining healthy bone structure since it facilitates the transfer of calcium from the bloodstream to the bones.  Vitamin K is also essential for regulating proteins that depend on calcium in the arteries. When there is a deficiency of vitamin K calcium circulating in the blood may cling to the artery walls leading to arteriosclerosis.

People of an advanced ageare at a greater need for vitamin K as even a small decrease in itslevels can pose risks to the vascular system.  In addition, the lack of vitamin K can lead to increased levels of undercarboxylated osteocalcin a process that has been associated with decreasing bone mass in women after menopause.

Humans receive most of their vitamin Kfrom green vegetables in the form of Vitamin K1. The problem is that K1 is tightly bound to plant fiber and onlya small fraction of it is absorbed bythe blood. Vitamin K2 is found in meat, eggs and dairy, while it is also made by friendly bacteria in the gut. Studies have shown that vitamin K2 has up to ten times higher bioavailability than K1.  K1 for exampleis metabolized by the liver within eight hours of intake, whereas measurable levels of K2 can still be found even 72 hours after intake.

Latest surveys have shown that the types of MK-4 and MK-7 of vitamin K2 are the most effective and can be immediately absorbed by the body.  MK-7 remains bioavailable in the body for a longer time, while the MK-4 causes an immediate increase of vitamin Kin the blood. Vitamin K1 is found in vegetables and is necessary for the body but even more important is the provision of the two types of K2. Life Extension’s Super K formula provides the necessary amount of Vitamin K1 and types MK-4 and MK-7 of vitamin K2 with only one capsule daily.  The advantage of this formula is that it provides optimal levels MK-7 that is sufficient over a for 24 hours period for our body.
