Life Extension calls itself a “global authority on nutrition, health and wellness”. Also known as The Life Extension Foundation, it began life in 1980 and is based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The non-profit organization was founded by William Faloon and Saul Kent – and it was built on the philosophy that “your deserves the best”. With this in mind, it states a dedication to creating quality products that are both pure and potent. Away from the foundation, Faloon compiled “Disease Prevention and Treatment” – a medical-reference book with 1500 pages. Meanwhile, Kent is an activist in favor of cryogenics.
To ensure quality at every stage of the manufacturing process, Life Extension says it starts by sourcing the finest raw materials – and it “accepts nothing but the best”. Meanwhile, all Life Extension products are made in facilities which comply with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) – and it holds a 21 CFR part 111 certificate from NSF International as proof of this.
In addition, the website’s FAQ page says the company ensures quality by using scientific research to confirm the usefulness of each ingredient and dose. Meanwhile, it guarantees products meet label claims through “advanced analytical methods”. These include high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and mass spectrometry (MS).
To provide potency, the organization says it never chooses its ingredients “based on cost”. In other words, it asserts a dedication to ensuring customers “get the most nutritional potency for [their] dollar”.
And to keep all Life Extension supplements remain pure, the brand website says those behind it only ever does business with the most trustworthy suppliers, while all raw materials are processed in ways which preserve “chemical complexity”.
The organization's product line includes single-ingredients like CoQ10, Arginine, Carnitine, Carnosine and Omega-3, in addition to protein powders and even anti-aging and hormonal-care supplements. Consumerlab.com – an independent test results provider – named Life Extension the winner of its “Top Rated Multivitamin”, “Top Rated Omega-3 EPA/DHA Products” and “Top Rated Resveratrol Products” awards in 2018. In fact, the brand has won all three of these awards several times.
