Life Extension’s Two Per Day multivitamins have the highest nutritional potencies of any science-based multivitamin formula that can fit inside two capsules or tablets. This gives you far more of the essential vitamins, minerals, and health-promoting nutrients than typical store-bought formulas … and it does so at a very economical price. Why is this so important? While Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) were developed by the government, they only provide the minimal doses to protect you from deficiency. Research studies demonstrate that unless you’re taking the ideal dose of vitamins and minerals, you won’t fully receive their benefits for optimal health and well-being.
Two-Per-Day contains three potent forms of selenium (SelenoExcell®, Se-methyl-selenocysteine, and sodium selenite). Also included is apigenin, a powerful bioflavonoid found in many vegetables and fruits which boosts cell protection.

Get the Most from your Multivitamin
Huge numbers of Americans take a multivitamin, but the potencies of the individual nutrients are usually so trivial that no health benefit is derived. The ultra-low cost of Two-Per-Day makes it one of the great bargains in the dietary supplement marketplace.
Crominex® 3+ Delivers Biologically Active Chromium
Obtain Multiple Health Benefits of Vitamin D
The current RDA is only 600 IU. As a result of startling evidence of a widespread vitamin D deficiency, prominent nutritional scientists are calling on Americans to increase their vitamin D intake to 1,000 IU per day and higher. Vitamin D in the amount of 2,000 IU is contained in the super-potent Two-Per-Day Tablets.
Strengthen Arteries, Bones, and Immunity with Vitamin C
Additionally, vitamin C is a vital cofactor in the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.30-32 However, vitamin C is mostly known as a major immune-supporting nutrient. It does this by boosting glutathione levels in human lymphocytes, cells that make up about 25% of all white cells in the blood.37
B Vitamins Maintain Youthful Metabolism
Because they are codependent in their metabolic activities, a deficiency of one B vitamin can affect optimal functioning of organ systems throughout the body.38
5-MTHF — Life Extension's Two-Per-Day contains 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), the active form of folate that is up to 7 times more bioavailable than folic acid. This greater bioavailability is especially important in people with a genetic enzyme deficiency since it requires no conversion to become metabolically active.
Additional High-Potency Minerals & Antioxidants
Alpha-lipoic acid — Alpha-lipoic acid promotes liver health, nerve health, and more. Plus, this universal antioxidant helps boost glutathione levels already within normal range.
It is also packed with nutrients like zinc citrate and natural mixed tocopherols for superior absorption and bioavailability. So start supplementing with the best multivitamin you can buy … choose Life Extension Two-Per-Day multivitamins.
