Product Development

Join us on the road to a better health and wellness.

Our products begin as revolutionary ideas. Once we have a burning question, we leave no stone unturned until we find the answer. Which compounds do best in clinical trials? Where can we get the absolute purest, most potent ingredients? And how can we optimize our formulas so your body can make the best use of the nutrients inside the softgel, capsule or tablet? There’s a reason we’re the best at what we do.

Superior Nutrients

What you put in determines what you get out.

Curcumin powder

Curcumin Elite™

Ultra-potent curcumin from co-op farms across India, combined with fenugreek fibers to maximize availability. The result: ultra-high free curcuminoid counts and incredible absorption.

Best in Class and Best Seller Icons

Only the Best

How do you know which Life Extension formula is right for you? We’ve marked our Best in Class supplements by health concern, as well as our customer favorites (hint: they’re often one and the same). Hopefully, this makes it easier to choose the formulation that’s suits your health goals.

IFOS logo

IFOS 5-Star Rated Fish Oil

IFOS™ is an independent organization that sets the standard for fish oil purity, potency and freshness. The IFOS logo means your fish oil has earned the highest IFOS 5-Star rating, is clear of toxins, contaminants and heavy metals, and is sustainably sourced and expertly handled from sea to softgel.

ConsumerLab Award

#1 Rated Multivitamins 8 Time Winner! is the leading provider of independent test results and information to help consumers and healthcare professionals identify the best quality health and nutrition products. When you see this award, know that your peers have rated that product, service or supplement family #1.

Non-GMO Self-Certification Seal

Non-GMO Self-Certification

When you see this icon, you can be sure that we’ve traced every ingredient all the way back up the supply chain and self-certify that nothing within it is made from a “genetically modified organism.”

Gluten Free Logo

Gluten-Free Formulations

Some of our customers have had to adopt a gluten-free lifestyle for health reasons. So we’ve reformulated many of our existing products with nutrients that are gluten-free. Plus, we’re taking steps to design as many of our new formulas as possible to be gluten-free. Keep your eye out for this icon!

one daily logo

Once-Daily Dosing

A multivitamin, a couple omega-3 softgels, maybe a targeted formulation for heart, joint, or brain health. They add up! So we’ve identified our formulas that deliver clinically studied results with just one softgel, tablet or capsule a day. We hope this makes your life just a little bit easier!

Commitment to Quality

Plan, execute, verify. That’s Life Extension®.

No one does quality control like us. Our ingredients have been screened for heavy metals, pesticides and contaminants. We use advanced analytical chemistry (high-performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography, microscopy, etc.) to ensure our raw materials are exactly what we say they are. Plus, we test finished products as well to ensure that what’s on the label is what’s in the product. Want to see the results? No problem—we make a Certificate of Analysis available upon request.

Life Extension Bottle Closure Variations

Does your supplement bottle look different than usual? Unfortunately, the plastics industry is experiencing significant supply shortages, and Life Extension has had to use different closures for certain products.

Some bottles may include:

  • A black closure instead of our standard blue closure
  • Poor print quality related to the silver ink on bottle closures
  • Plain black lids, some with flip tops (no logo)

You can rest assured that these temporary bottle manufacturing challenges will not impact the quality and safety of the supplements they contain.

We appreciate your patience as we do everything we can to return to our normal aesthetic standards as soon as possible.
