“When Saul Kent and I established the Life Extension Foundation back in 1980, our objective was to raise public awareness that pathological aging need not be an inevitable consequence of human maturation.
“Back then, few scientists believed that anything could be done to prevent the degenerative effects inflicted by aging. To counter this misconception, Saul and I pointed to then-current scientific stud- ies showing that it was possible to pre- vent some age-related diseases and to slow the aging process itself. We argued that if enough funds were committed to research, therapies to retard human aging could be developed that would result in the greatest revolution in medi- cal history.
“What we were ridiculed about back then is now accepted as scientific fact — that humans can take steps to significantly reduce the deleterious effects of normal aging.1 Dozens of companies have raised billions of dollars to develop validated anti-aging drugs. Anti-aging doctors have formed and joined their own medical
associations. The federal government now recommends some of the healthy lifestyle changes, supplements, and drugs that we advocated in the 1980s.2 Perhaps most notably, the news media has recognized the science behind our revolutionary objec- tives, and prestigious publications such as Scientific American have dedicated special issues to reporting what people can do to stave off aging.
“Membership in the Life Extension Foundation is all about having the knowl- edge, services and supplements to live life in a more healthy way.”
Our business is to keep you healthy.
Life Extension is the global leader in anti-aging and optimal health. In fact, we’re always at the forefront of medi- cal research, seeking ways to prolong youth, health, and life.

Information is power … especially when it comes to your personal health. Life Extension was formed in 1980 to enable consumers to know and understand their options to live longer and better. Life Extension founders were fascinated by the fact that some individuals live a long life with few medical problems, yet most people expire prematurely. They wanted to find out what caused people to die too young. This yearning provided tremendous incentive to form a non-profit organization to educate the public about how to protect against the diseases of aging. Co-founder Bill Faloon explains it this way:

DISCOVERIES THAT BENEFIT MANY
Life Extension is frequently years ahead of the medical establishment in uncovering and reporting scientific insights. This brief summary will give you just a glimpse of some of the things we’ve brought to light.
• 1983: Introduced CoQ10 to the U.S. as an anti-aging nutrient that significantly boosts cardiac energy output.
• 1983: Recommended the use of low-dose aspirin therapy on a daily basis to prevent vascular disease.
• 1988: Introduced phosphatidylserine to improve memory and slow brain aging.
• 1992: Introduced melatonin to the Ameri- can public based on overwhelming evidence that this natural hormone is an effective anti-aging therapy.
• 1997: Introduced a European discovery called SAMe (s-adenosyl-methionine) that safely alleviated depression, arthritis, and certain liver disorders.
• 2004: Reported that optimal glucose levels should be lower than current guidelines to reduce heart attack risk by 40%. Soon after, national standards for the upper-scale limit of blood glucose were lowered.
• 2007: Showed that low blood levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are independent risk factors for heart attack and angina.
• 2010: Introduced PQQ (pyrroloquinoline qui- none), a compound shown to promote the growth of new mitochondria in aging cells.
• 2011: Introduced magnesium-L-threonate, a better absorbed form of magnesium that specifically targets the aging brain and nervous system to enhance memory and cognitive function.
