Two-Per-Day Tablets (LifeExtension)
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 healthpromoting 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.

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.
Promote Pathways of Longevity with Nicotinamide Riboside
NIAGEN® is the first commercially available form of nicotinamide riboside. Naturally found in milk, nicotinamide riboside increases NAD+ at the cellular level. If you are experiencing fatigue and lack of motivation, it may be due to the age-related decline in NAD+ levels1 and subsequent impairment of healthy cellular metabolism.2 NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) promotes systemic youthful functions and is found in every cell in the body.3 In addition, NAD+ plays an essential role in regulating genes4,5 that control aging.6 Newly patented nicotinamide riboside increases cellular levels of NAD+ in the body.7,8
Crominex® 3+ Delivers Biologically Active Chromium
Two-Per-Day Tablets provide Crominex® 3+, a highly stable and biologically active form of chromium blended with Capros® Amla and PrimaVie® Shilajit.9 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.10-16 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.17-26 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 Tablets.
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.27-36 Additionally, vitamin C is a vital cofactor to 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
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.38
5-MTHF — Life Extension's Two-Per-Day now 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 Tablets 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.
Our Two-Per-Day formula 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.
