Description

  • High Potency Multivitamin & Mineral Supplement
  • Dietary Supplement

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 Capsules. 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 now contains three potent forms of selenium (SelenoExcell, Se-methyl-selenocysteine, and sodium selenite). Also newly 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

Two-Per-Day Capsules provide Crominex 3+, a highly stable and biologically active form of chromium blended with Capros Amla and PrimaVie Shilajit. When used as part of a healthy diet, chromium plays a vital role in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in those within normal range.

Obtain Multiple Health Benefits of Vitamin D

Vitamin D has long provided significant support for healthy bone density. However, scientists have also validated the critical role that vitamin D plays in regulating healthy cell division and differentiation, and its profound effects on human immunity. These findings link a deficiency of vitamin D to a host of common age-related problems.

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 Capsules.

Strengthen Arteries, Bones, and Immunity with Vitamin C

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress.

Additionally, vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.  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.

B Vitamins Maintain Youthful Metabolism

B Vitamins — there's more than one "vitamin B." Your body uses B vitamins plus enzymes to release energy stored in carbohydrates, fat, and protein … energy which is needed by your cells. Life Extension Two-Per-Days contain bioactive forms of vitamin B2, vitamin B6, and more.

Because they are codependent in their metabolic activities, a deficiency of one B vitamin can affect optimal functioning of organ systems throughout the body.

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

A multivitamin is not complete without providing all of the minerals and a few antioxidants essential to healthy living. Life Extension's Two-Per-Day Capsules provide 10 times more biotin and 4 times more selenium than Centrum Silver Adults 50+.

Alpha-lipoic acid — Alpha-lipoic acid promotes liver health, nerve health, and more. Plus, this universal antioxidant helps boost glutathione levels already in 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.

FAQ

Does everyone need supplements? Not everyone needs supplements. However, just about everyone can benefit from supplements. You may have a specific issue you want to address, like fatigue or trouble focusing for more than a few minutes at a time. Or you may feel great, in which case supplements are like oiling the parts of a well-running machine so that it keeps performing at its best.

Why can’t I get all the vitamins and minerals I need from my food? That would be great, wouldn’t it? Unfortunately, most of the soil in which our food crops are grown has been depleted through extensive use. Hundreds of years ago, farmers could let fields “rest” for a season while the soil renewed itself with the help of rain, earthworms and microbial activity. Now with a more populated planet and higher food demands, fields are kept in production and the soil becomes depleted.

How do I know which supplements to take? If you have no specific health issues, start with a basic multivitamin or even with just vitamin C, proven to help prevent and shorten the duration of colds and flu-related illnesses.

If I take supplements, can I worry less about my diet? Supplements are never a substitute for a good, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. However, eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, exercising, getting enough sleep AND fine-tuning your health with supplements can be a powerful combination.

Are supplements safe to take? Although supplements are generally safe, it’s always best to check with your doctor before starting on a program of supplements. Some supplements may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, for example. And the most important thing is to observe how you feel while taking a particular supplement. Listen to the feedback your body will give you!

What if I’m pregnant? If you’re pregnant, ask your doctor or midwife about a good prenatal supplement. You may need extra iron or folic acid during your pregnancy, and prenatal vitamins are formulated with both you and the baby in mind.

Can supplements make me look better? Many people swear by treating their skin from the inside out. Popular beauty-boosting supplements are hyaluronic acid, collagen peptides, vitamin C, omega-3s and antioxidants. When combined with exercise, a healthy diet, enough sleep and use of sunscreen, these supplements can be a powerful weapon in your beauty arsenal.

Can supplements keep me from getting COVID-19? While no supplement has proven effective in preventing or curing COVID-19, a healthy body is more resistant to illnesses. Get enough sleep and exercise, drink plenty of water, eat the healthiest diet you can and find the right supplements for your body! Many people love immune-boosting supplements such as turmeric, ginger and of course, vitamin C.

Can supplements help me with stress? Many people swear by plant-based calming supplements such as chamomile, rhodiola rosea or ashwagandha. Melatonin is also popular for enhancing sleep. We believe that a healthy body is naturally more resistant to the stresses of everyday life, but you may need extra help from a supplement during a particularly stressful period.

How can I find the right supplement for me? Read, take advantage of the information we offer here, ask your friends and family what has worked for them, and ask your doctor! Then finally, choose a supplement according to your needs and observe how you feel while taking it. And lastly, congratulate yourself for taking an important step towards a healthier you!
