  • NAD+ Promotes Stem Cell Renewal and Regenerates Mitochondria
    NAD+ Promotes Stem Cell Renewal and Regenerates Mitochondria

    Life Extension® receives many inquiries about stem cell infusion therapies offered in the United States and other countries.

    Improving Odds of Creating Super Babies

    Pregnancy can be one of the most joyous times in a woman’s life. But it can also be nerve-racking. There are rules about what to eat (fruit and veggies galore) and what not to eat (no sushi or soft cheeses). Doctors routinely recommend taking prenatal vitamins to ensure the mother and developing fetus are getting the essential nutrients they need.

  • RHODIOLA Combats “Burnout” Syndrome
    RHODIOLA Combats “Burnout” Syndrome

    Burnout is real. In May 2019, the World Health Organization officially included it in its International Classification of Diseases.

  • Rebuild Youthful Skin, Hair, and Nails from Within
    Rebuild Youthful Skin, Hair, and Nails from Within

    Although aging impacts the whole body, the most visible effects occur in our skin, hair, and nails. As we mature, our outer tissues lose their framework of structural proteins, namely keratin, collagen, and elastin. Loss of structural proteins in the body is further compounded by external factors such as pollution and sun exposure. To counter this visible deterioration, scientists have investigated nutrients that can be taken orally to rebuild the underlying architecture of the skin, hair,...

    A Non-Hormone Approach to Menopause Management

    Menopausal women can obtain symptomatic relief with proper use of estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones. Life Extension® has long advocated for bio-identical hormones as opposed to horse urine-derived estrogens and synthetic progestogens. Some women, however, choose not to replace hormones and endure years of misery. A non-hormonal approach has been demonstrated with an extract made from Siberian rhubarb.
