What’s New?

Help Your Customers Fight Aging At The Cellular Level

Life Extension has the perfect formula for your customers looking to restore youthful metabolic function…AMPK Activator! Found in every cell,1,2 AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase) is an enzyme that serves as the body’s master regulating switch. Studies show increased AMPK activity supports reduced fat storage,3 encourages new mitochondria production,4 helps maintain healthy glucose and lipid levels already within normal range,5 and revitalizes aging cells.6

This dual-extract formulation contains Gynostemma pentaphyllum extract and rose hip extract, which is standardized to trans-tiliroside—both of which boost AMPK activity. Plus, researchers have documented a one-inch reduction in abdominal circumference in overweight individuals who took 450 mg daily of G. pentaphyllum extract for 12 weeks.7

And among other benefits, a low human equivalent dose of 56 mg daily trans-tiliroside has been shown by researchers in preclinical studies to promote healthy blood glucose levels and body weight already within normal range.8 Reverse cellular depletion of AMPK and promote youthful metabolic health with AMPK Activator—just one of the many new formulas for success that are available to you from Life Extension!
