Dosage and Use
Individuals consuming more than 50 mcg (2000 IU)/day of vitamin D (from diet and supplements) should periodically obtain a serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D measurement. Vitamin D supplementation is not recommended for individuals with high blood calcium levels.
Our soy-free Two-Per-Day Capsules contain a bioactive form of the B-vitamin folate, 5-MTHF; quercetin; zinc citrate; vitamin E as mixed tocopherols and more.
Lutein and zeaxanthin for eye health—Standardized for both trans-lutein and trans-zeaxanthin, the marigold extract in our Two-Per-Day formula promotes ocular health and helps inhibit oxidative stress.
Vitamin D for healthy minds and bodies
We all know vitamin D supports bone health. But vitamin D also promotes healthy cell division, supports immune system health and more.1,2 Our Two-Per-Day multivitamin delivers 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 with every serving.
Vitamin C for immune health, arterial health and more
Vitamin C is associated with immune system health, an effect that may result from its ability to scavenge free radicals and protect against oxidative stress, as well as its stimulation of the production and function of white blood cells.3-5 Additionally, vitamin C is vital in encouraging collagen formation, the connective tissue found throughout healthy arterial walls, skin, bones and teeth.4 Our Two-Per-Day formula delivers 470 mg of vitamin C per serving.
B vitamins help maintain youthful metabolism
Your body needs B vitamins to release energy stored in carbohydrates, fats and proteins — energy your cells use to carry out their daily functions. But there's more than one “vitamin B.” And because they are metabolically codependent, B vitamins work together to maintain overall health. That's why our formula contains readily metabolized forms of vitamin B1, riboflavin (B2), vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and more.
Bioactive 5-MTHF Folate
Our Two-Per-Day formula contains 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), a form of folate that is up to seven times more bioavailable than folic acid.6 This is particularly important for those with certain inherited enzyme variants that make folate metabolism less efficient, since 5-MTHF is already in a metabolically active form.7
Mixed vitamin E tocopherols
There are four forms of tocopherol vitamin E. Two-Per-Day provides all four. For biomarkers of oxidative stress and promoting a healthy inflammatory response, evidence shows that combining alpha- and gamma-tocopherols is better than taking either nutrient alone.8 Our formula provides more than 80 mg of mixed alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocopherols.
Bioactive quercetin phytosome
Our Two-Per-Day multivitamin contains 5 mg of quercetin that has been integrated into a phytosome. A phytosome is a phospholipid sphere that encases a botanical compound, aiding in its absorption and making it more bioavailable, so this quercetin is up to 50 times more bioavailable than standard quercetin.9 Quercetin supports cellular health, endothelial health, healthy immune function and more.
High-potency minerals, antioxidants and extracts
A multivitamin is not complete without the minerals and other nutrients essential to healthy living. Our Two-Per-Day formula provides 10 times more biotin and twice as much zinc as Centrum® Silver® Adults 50+. Our formula also delivers 100 mg of magnesium and 150 mcg of iodine, as well as trace minerals like manganese and boron.
Alpha-lipoic acid—Alpha-lipoic acid is potent support against oxidative stress that promotes metabolic and nerve health and helps protect vitamin C and glutathione against damaging free radicals.10-12
Selenium—Selenium supports heart and brain health, promotes a healthy inflammatory and immune response, and helps quench free radical activity.13,14 Our Two-Per-Day formula has three forms of selenium (200 mcg total): SelenoExcell®, Se-methyl L-selenocysteine and sodium selenite.
Apigenin—This powerful botanical bioflavonoid is found in many fruits and vegetables.15 Apigenin helps boost the body's natural cellular defenses.
Crominex® 3+ biologically active chromium
Chromium helps maintain already-healthy blood sugar levels. Crominex® 3+ is a highly stable and biologically active form of chromium optimized with Capros® amla Indian gooseberry extract to promote endothelial health and PrimaVie® shilajit for supporting cellular energy.16
Everyone should be getting the most out of their multivitamin. There's no simpler way to ensure your body is getting the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients you need to support your health. But not all multivitamins are created equal—so choose our best: Life Extension Two-Per-Day Capsules.
